    • Krebons < Marshmallon / Spirit Reaper
    • Thunder of Ruler < Threatening Roar
    • Magic Drain < Magic Jammer / Spell Shield Type-8 (because you have lots of Spells to discard anyway). Dark Bribe is an option as well.
    • Reflect Bounder wants out.
    • Since you aren't using Shining Angel, you might as well have all Kaisers instead of Light Effigy since its stats are optimal and Effigy can ONLY 2x on Normal Monster Tributes. Kaiser isn't searchable by Witch, however. Your call. Shining Angel can pop Effigy, but not Kaiser.
    • The Dark - Hex-Sealed Fusion doesn't work with Five Headed Dragon because it can only be summoned via Fusion - this card does not say "this is treated as a Fusion Summon." You are better off using the Light anyways, since you use Blue-Eyes. Keeping this card in here would be nice if you threw in another copy of Lord of D. and added 3x Lord Dragun to your Fusion Deck.
    • You should add Change of Heart for Traditional.
    • Mausoleum of the Emperor isn't really worthwhile. Do what you want with that. 2000 LP a summon, especially with the choices you have aren't exactly a good deal.
    • Masked Dragon can only summon Twin-Headed Behemoth and Decoy Dragon in this deck. It's not really worthwhile.
    • Light and Darkness Dragon is a somewhat useless card if your opponent uses cards that can activate multiple times without repercussion, such as Treeborn Frog. During the Standby Phase, your 2800 ATK becomes a 300 ATK because they can keep attempting to summon it over and over. After that, it loses its purpose.
    • You should either focus on Blue-Eyes or Swarming/Five-Head. Combining both doesn't really work.

    I'll discuss your changes step by step.

    • Krebons, while it's effect is pretty good, is not in my deck for defensive purposes. It is, first and foremost, a tuner monster that I need for my Synchro monsters.
    • Threatening roar is slightly better than Thunder of Ruler, so I'll try to replace it.
    • While I do not have a Magic Jammer at the moment, I do have a SST8, you have a good point about the weakness of Magic Drain.
    • Reflect Bounder saved my life and cost my opponent 5000 points just Wednesday, so it stays.
    • I just took out light effigy yesterday, I replaced it with earthquake for Red Dragon Archfiend.
    • I put in The Light, so that helps me. While King Dragun has an awesome effect, I don't know where I would find ne, let alone 3.
      And The Hex Sealed Fusion's effect is in two parts. It's special summon is not the only effect, as it can be used like Versago the Destroyer in a fusion summon.
    • I'll think about Change of Heart.
    • Mausoleum stays. It has helped me in some dire situations where I couldn't keep a monster on the field to tribute.
    • Masked Dragon can also summon Different Dimension Dragon which is a cool monster to have on the field.
    • I'll think about LADD, but I make no promises since it has saved me a couple of times.
    • My main goal is to get my powerful dragons out as soon as possible, which explains Ancient Rules, Cry Havoc, and the Future Fusion/Dragon's Mirror combo. That's about it. Thank you.

    I'll second a Magic Jammer. Unless the focus of the deck is to get them to discard cards for some reason, Magic Drain just doesn't hold up. Getting them to discard a Spell Card just means their Spell Card is still going through. You always want that assured stopping power. Too bad I'm not able to trade at the moment. I could have helped here a bit.

    And he's right about Hex, Anything. It has two effects, one of which makes it a legal substitute for any Fusion Summon.

    What I meant is that with the Light, you get the same fusion-puppet effect, but you also get the opportunity to pop an Ultimate Dragon given the chance. With a The Dark, you'd need a Polymerization as well.

    Just had the deck pretty much remade from the ground up by my pro friend. Once I get Magna Drago, for the Synchro monsters, I hope to be done finally after 4+ years of remaking this thing.
