Nah, just call it a casual deck!

Casual is a format where Chaos Orb is legal as a 4 of.

Oops, didn't see Razor Boomerang was already there. Replace them with 3x Chaos Orb

I'm not exactly sure what you mean.

There are 33 cards banned in Modern. That's a measly .29% of available cards in Modern. There are some absurdly powerful cards on this list, but its far from all the "halfway decent" cards. Jace, the Mind Sculptor was recently unbanned. Path to Exile and Thoughtseize are wonderful cards. Snapcaster Mage, Delver of Secrets  Flip, Aether Vial. Countless infinite combos or other turn four victories.

Standard only has seven banned cards, and these were banned because they were way too powerful, and thus run in every deck (Smuggler's Copter, or they enable a single archetype which became overly common in the meta, stifling competition and creative deckbuilding.

Legacy's banlist consists of cards that would essentially allow whoever went first to always win the game. It also limits cards that might constitute a violation of real world laws (i.e. cards with ante), and dexterity challenges (Chaos Orb). Shahrazad is banned because it would interfere with the timing of tournaments by needlessly stretching out games.

Vintage allows mostly anything, bar Shahrazad, ante, and dexterity cards. The restricted cards are chosen to limit players' ability to win a game before their opponent can make a move.

Ultimately, the ban and restricted lists are not very intrusive, and there's still plenty of room for unique, interesting deckbuilding. It's simply an incorrect statement that "all of the halfway decent cards are banned".

squinney1718 As Chaos Orb is illegal in Commander I'm guessing it was a typo - I've put Gauntlets of Chaos in my version of the deck ;)

I'm confused... what does it do? Why did you put Chaos Orb in when it's banned.
