Good Advice x1 - only for anti, prob don't need.
Red Static Shot x2 (good for anger) - take it out.
Spice Prepares an Energy Attack x1 (I play it as my last attack so it gets
through) - terrible
Last Ditch Effort x1 (good as a last ditch effort) - Cut this.

Well There's my deck I really hope you can help out, thanks. Also What black style mastery do you think is best?

Which Black Mastery is best... well, I like the CS Mastery personally because of the disruption, which can throw off combo decks and easily setup big attacks (Carpet decks, etc). On the other hand, TS is extremely good for big beatdown, mainly because the damage easily stacks. Black Bojack and Tapkar easily proves this. More or less, it is whatever your playing style is.

Now to the deck...

Your levels should be the GFHT Offensive or Defensive. Personally I'd go with Offensive for the one anger, but Defensive can help you from a big early combat. Your call there. The UR level 5 is a bit better as well.

Shelter is good, but remember it does help your opponent as well. I personally would use City In Turmoil.

Funny that's the only Dragon Ball you run. I would consider running Earth 7, 4, and probably alt 3 as well.

Your combats need major help. First off, you are running Vegeta's Surprise Defense, which needs to go. Then, add your staples like A18's Staredown, TES, SSE, CTP, and A17 Smirks. Krillin's Search works mainly in heavy Named card decks, and yours should be more Red. Add another Double Strike as well.

Take out all your non-combats. None of them are worth running. I would run only the staples and ET in a straight anger.

Your attacks/blocks... you seem to know what's wrong. And thus, that's for you to fix. Take out the junk and run good stuff like Red Eye Laser Assault, Red Lightning Slash, Red Axe Heel Kick, Captain Ginyu's Energy Attack, Majin Buu's Energy Spray, and so forth.

Good luck.
