So you say Edgar? Probably some more examples? but I really doubt those are read /dg/, I personally would pronounce Edgar something like /æθ-gar/. So I would write it then Эдггар, or Эд-гар but I am not sure if one should base his decision on this example, it looks like a rare exeption.

If you were given the task, say by the British Government, to design a new version of the Cyrillic alphabet which the people of Great Britain would then use instead of the current system, how would go about it?
