Ok here's my fire themed deck:

Well, here is my fire-themed deck. I consider it to be one of my best creative decks, but I still don't think its up to par. My deck revolves around my 3 Tyrant Dragons and my 3 Red Eyes Black Dragons. The Tyrant Dragon is pretty powerful by itself(2900/2500) with just 100 less atk than the BEWD but it doesn't stop there. Major advantages to this card are that my deck powers it up very well. Four Cards in my deck power up fire main types atks by 500. This being 2x Little Chimera which effect powers up fire types by 500, and Burning Blood which increases fire type attacks by 500 as well. Demon Axe powers creatures up by 1000, and Metallize powers creatures up by 300 + half the atk power of the target monster.(e.g. Tyrant Dragon + Metallize vs. BEUD, 2900 + 300 + 2250 = 5450 atk) On top of this the T-Dragon can attack twice helping my cause even more. Dragon Scales helps the majority of my monsters which are dragon sub types and have immense atk power to take advantage of this by giving out more damage of the opponent's monster's defense setting rather than attack.
My second target with this deck is to power up with the Red Eyes Black Dragon. Basically I can use most of my powerups except for the fire powerups. Anyway, the first option is to equip Metal Conversion onto REBD, if the opponent comes out w/ a strong monster like BEWD, I won't switch to REBMD, because half of BEWD's atk is 1500, so REBD's atk would be raised by 1500. Anyway, otherwise I'll bring out the Red Eyes Black Metal Dragon. After the sacrafice I can Raise Dead to bring back another hitter w/ the REBD. The other two REBD are for fusion purposes. Red Eyes Black Dragon + Demon Summon = Black Demon's Dragon(Dark/Dragon/8/3200/2500) Red Eyes Black Dragon + Meteor Dragon = Meteor Black Dragon(Fire/Dragon/8/3500/2000)
Anyway, the rest should explain itself, thanks for the tips.
The bad thing is that there are not many worthy Fire Monsters in the world of Duel Monsters. This makes a Fire deck a little difficult. But you have picked up the slack in making it a Fire/Dragon deck.
First of all, you have too many cards in the deck (around 50). Try to keep the main deck as close to 40 as possible.
I would remove the Little Chimeras. Yes, it gives you a small boost, but it needs to be face up. By the time you put it down, or summon it in attack mode, your opponent will destroy it.
Get rid of the Flame Demons and put in two Flame Duelists, which are just as powerful as the Burning Soldiers (they have 50 less in defense than the Burning Soldiers). If you're REALLY intent on Fusing, drop the Meteor Dragon and put in two Goddess of the Truthful Eye.
Remove one Saint Magician. There's nothing worse than getting one, and having no Magic cards in your Cemetery. Replace the Hane-Hand with a Penguin Soldier. The Penguin Soldier is just a double-effect Hane-Hane.
Remove one Tyrant Dragon, and one Red Eyes. Both need two Monsters to sacrifice to bring out. Plus, if you're going to rely in getting the Tyrant Dragon back into play, you're going to have to sacrifice one of your Dragons on the Field.
Remove the Red Dragon and Big Bandragons. Put in one Emerald Dragon.
Drop the two Fireballs and put in Midnight Infernos. You could also go a step and replace them with Hellblazes instead, if you don't mind the 500 damage to yourself. Swap one Demon Axe with a Thunder Bolt. I would remove the Cross Soul. Why? Well, this deck concentrates on hard, fast attacking. Giving your opponent one extra turn in such a deck is a disastrous thing. Put two Angel's Gifts in.
I can't find Dark Dragon Claws anywhere. It's only in the animated series and manga, and in my PC game. Remove it if it doesn't exist.
Remove one Metal Conversion. Replace Super Z with a Magic Cylinder.
Well, here would be our final forty-one card deck then:
Fusion Deck (??)
Of course, the deck should be tested thoroughly, and suited to your playing style. But most of all, have fun with your theme decks. See how much flavor that Duel Monsters has!
If you have a deck that you would like to submit to Edo's Deck Lab, mail them on over to me so that I can have a look at it.
