The answer is a matter of opinion, but here are a list of pros and cons both types have. The following takes into account the possibilities monsters of each type existing in decks centered on them and decks that don't.

Pros of Warriors:

  • numerous support cards with a variety of functions
  • numerous Warrior-type monsters of different archetypes (The Six Samurai, Elemental Heroes, Destiny Heroes, "Warrior" Synchro Monsters, etc.)
  • Some are synergistic in other strategies ("D-Hero Disk Commander", "Rose, Warrior of Revenge", "E-Hero Stratos", "Colossal Fighter", etc.)
  • Vary from high ATK to low ATK
  • High capability of inclusion in decks not centered on the Warrior type

Cons of Warriors:

  • Cards specifically regarding the Warrior type are not used very often (with the exception of "Reinforcement of the Army")
  • Not necessarily a "con", but there are few decks that center on the Warrior type; just decks that feature powerful monsters that just happen to be Warrior

Pros of Dragons:

  • Plenty of support cards with a variety of functions
  • Typically have high ATK
  • Fusions can be easily achieved thanks to "Dragon's Mirror" and "Future Fusion"
  • Feature notable Dragons ("Blue-Eyes", "Horus the Black Flame Dragon LV8", "Five-Headed Dragon"/"F.G.D.", etc.)
  • "Red-Eyes Darkness Metal Dragon" is a great card for swarming the field with powerful Dragons
  • Some of the best Synchro Monsters are Dragon-type ("Stardust Dragon", "Black Rose Dragon", "Trishula, Dragon of the Ice Barrier", etc.)
  • "Debris Dragon" works very well in decks that feature low ATK monsters (even some Monarch decks)

Cons of Dragons:

  • Most of the time, the only way to win with a Dragon deck is to swarm and overpower your opponent while being mindful of their Spells and Traps. A Dragon deck forced to play defensively in a duel can end up performing poorly. (Not to say Warrior decks can't suffer the same problem, but there a multitude of different focuses a Warrior-type deck can possess. Some of those varieties might handle certain situations better.)
  • Aside notable cards like "Debris Dragon" and "Stardust Dragon", most Dragons do not fit in decks not centered on Dragons. The "Dragunity" cards are a slight except to this.
