Deck discussion for Modern Madness

Collective brutality is the best friend of builds like this, as is faithless looting

Thanks for the suggestions, I really like Collective brutality for its versatility, I'll likely find a way to place it in this deck. faithless looting is a very cheap way to discard cards without overall card loss with its draw 2. My only hesitation is adding a third colour to this deck (the current occurrences of red in the deck are just black/red split symbols.) I just traditionally have had issues with getting correct mana drops with more than 2 colours.

Since you're casting when you activate Madness, consider Vengevine. It's another fantastic card to pitch and if you pitch it then later cast or madness cast two dudes in the same turn... he's back.

After some testing the deck was a little slow and ran out of steam early due to low hand size
Ive adjusted it to compensate by adding some blue draw / discard cards and modifying the mana balance

Also added Lotleth troll as a discard outlet and added some non-madness discard fuel with Resembling Skeleton and Advanced Stitchwing

will update after some more testing.

What kind of budget are we working with here? If you're willing to spend a little there are some excellent cards I would recommend

Consider it with no budget limitations. At this point It's an exercise in possibilities.

Well, madness is a mechanic that's not strong enough on its own to warrant a deck. Rather, its a splashable mechanic that fits well with necro/dredge builds that in general focus on ditching cards for card advantage.

Bloodghast is the champion of builds like this. Ditch him to a discard effect, bounce him back with a landdrop and go to work. Normal removal doesn't work on him, and you can ditch him to some fantastic 1-drop discards then bounce him back turn 2 with the landfall.

Liliana of the veil needs to be mainboarded and maxed out, as it hits opponent with the discard and helps you, all for 3 mana that starts a win clock.

Jace, vryn's prodigy hits extremely hard if you want to stay blue.

However, I would advise dropping blue and green entirely, as black and red can get basically the same things done but more effectively.

Faithless looting, insolent neonate, cathartic reuinion, tormenting voice in particular have fantastic discard mechanics. Red/black also gives you access to traditional removal like lightning bolt, fatal push, terminate, and kolaghan's command.

Or you could go jund, keep lotleth troll, and work into a zombie mechanic with gravecrawler and tymaret, the murder king.

However, any way you decide to go i highly recommend bloodghast and liliana

I cooked up this, mono-black and similar in design but yeah very little in the way of actual madness.
