I like the Armed Dragons because of their availability and great effects. All of them but the lv 7 and lv 10 are easy to obtain. Lv 7 isn't as hard to get as lv 10. Other cards like Luster Dragon are in there because of their power. The Masked Dragon is in there because he can let you summon the Armed Dragon lv 3, or another Masked Dragon if your opponent can attack again, and you can immediately tribute the lv 3 to summon Armed Dragon lv 5 during your next turn. If you do this, all you have to do is destroy one of your opponent's monsters and you can summon lv 7. All in one turn. Cards like Level Up and Level Modulation can help bring out your lv 7 or 10 even faster. Just watch out for Level Down!?. It will mess you up.

Just in case Armed Dragon lv 7 isn't strong enough to defeat your opponent's monsters, I included some really good equipt cards, like Axe of Despair and Wicked-Breaking Flamberge-Baou. Mountain is also a good card to power up all of your dragons. I didn't include my side deck because I really don't like them much, but cards like Metalmorph, Blast with Chain, Horn of the Unicorn, and other cards can power up your monsters a lot. Cards like Fissure and Tribute to the Doomed can be useful in a pinch. I tried to make it as pure and useful as I could, but I encourage adding new cards to improve it. I did include some basic staples of any good deck, like Waboku, Spellbinding Circle, and Trap Hole.

You may not know this, but as of 3/1/08 (March 1, 2008) Monster Reborn is no longer banned (hooray), but Call of the Haunted is. I thought I should include this since they are commonly owned and used cards. If you find any good ways to improve the deck, I would like to know, so if you can send the updates to KUG_king@hotmail.com. Thanks.
