Just the deadlift for the back? And just the squat for the legs? How about some pullups or pullovers for the lats or some rows?

Since you're doing chest and shoulders on the same day I might go like this.

Flat bench
Flat bench flies
Incline bench
DB shoulder press
superset front/side/rear DB raises
DB shrugs

So you start with a power move (bench) move to isolation (flies) then to an exercise that is both chest and shoulders (incline) to just shoulders (military) to isolating the 3 heads of the shoulders and end with finishing up the traps.

A lot of people like decline, but most big guys I know stay away from it, they find gravity pulls most of their chest down anyway and then add additional muscle mass from doing decline and they look like they have boobs. One guy I know still does it, but only once a month.

Personally I think a whole day each for bi's and tri's which are realitivly small muscles and only half a day on chest, back, shoulders and legs is a little backwards. I'd try to give each big muscle group it's own day and throw bi's, tri's in where ever they would fit
