Deck Fix: Macro - Master of Shadows

Hello, once again, everyone. I have another deck fix for you all, so let's get to it.
 
Hello, my friends call me Dendai, like DBZ. Anyways, I have a Macro's Deck I have been playing for someime now and would like your expert opinion on how to maybe improve it. My deck consist of 43 cards and a 15 card side-deck. When the right cards are drawn, it is hard to be beaten, but that is how must GOOD decks are built. I think I need more drawing power, or some kind of way to get my cards out when I ned them. I lose alot to decks that can easily special summon  or can increase their ATK points. I am a casual player and don't over-extend my hand, but I love to end games quickly before my oppenent can set up his field. I was maybe thinking of adding a Crush Card Virus for those high ATK monsters. Can you help me put together a more versatile deck and a solid side deck. Thanks for your assistance.

A Macro Cosmos deck, I see. Let's see what I can do to this.
 
Cards to cut:
 
- 1 Exiled Force
- 2 Cyber Dragon
- 1 Morphing Jar
- 1 Smashing Ground
- 1 D.D.R. - Different Dimension Reincarnation
- 2 Dark Bribe
 
I cut 8 cards. That's not much. Exiled Force because you have numerous cards that perform its job. Cyber Dragon because, between D.D. Survivor and D.D. Scout Plane, you'll almost always have a monster on the field, meaning Cyber Dragon becomes useless. Morphing Jar because I have a better alternative for a spot of draw power. Smashing Ground because you have multiple cards doing its job. D.D.R. because you have Escape from the Dark Dimension here. I left one D.D.R. in, though. (On the other hand, you could leave both D.D.R. copies here and drop Escape.) Dark Bribe was dropped in favor of more Solemn Judgments.
 
Cards to add:
 
+ 2 Cyber Valley
+ 1 Caius the Shadow Monarch
+ 1 Dimensional Fissure
+ 1 Macro Cosmos
+ 2 Solemn Judgment
 
I added 7, bringing you to 42. Cyber Valley for draw power (best used with Brain Control or D.D. Survivor / Scout Plane). The third Caius because it's great removal and naturally belongs here. Solemn Judgment for better protection than Dark Bribe can provide. Dimensional Fissure and Macro Cosmos to help you draw them faster by increasing your chances of drawing them and also making it easier to replace them if your opponent gets rid of them.
 
I did what I could. Things seemed to be already put together here. Try looking at many of the Macro decks I've fixed so far. Maybe one of them holds something that you could use. Enjoy.
 
That's about it for now. Comments, suggestions, etc. can be sent to

 Until next time....
