Rainbow Dragon, Tortoise, Over the Rainbow, Monster Reincarnation, Swords of Revealing Light, Crystal Pair, Rainbow Gravity, and Dark Bribe are all bad cards.

Over the Rainbow is also a OCG exclusive, so I am assuming you're playing online. Try the Crystal Pendulum cards?

Lightning Chidori, Castel, Diamond Dire Wolf are all amazing rank 4's in CB

Dark Hole, Torrential Tribute both are great. They wipe the board and fill your backrow

Ancient City - Rainbow Ruins is a AMAZING card, run it.

Traps and CB's typically shouldn't mix, you will fill up your backrow with your 'spells' if you are doing everything correctly

I could go on for a while about Crystal Beasts. I don't want to now, so I'll just link to my guide once I've finished fixing it.

Is this deck IRL or online? Because the builds vary quite a bit depending on whether you have the OCG-exclusive support or not.

Rainbow Ruins is not a good card imo it doesn't do anything unless you're in a good position already

Agreed. If you have a backrow full of Crystals, you're going to drop a Beacon and use them up. Rainbow Ruins's effects are a cherry on top that doesn't matter unless you accumulate 3+ Crystals.

Despite that, it's might be worth running without the OCG-exclusive support, hah.
