I was thinking Grixis for Drake Haven too. I went in a more recursion heavy direction than madness - but we both seem to agree on the "correct" colors for it. I probably got a little more distracted by wanting to play new cards than you did (or at least lacked the self control to keep them out).

God damn it's killing me that everyone else here is already playing. I'm like that one kid in grade school who's parents won't allow opening of Christmas presents until noon. :(

Made some changes to the deck, that I believe will give it some more consistency.

- 2 Asylum Visitor
- 2 Pull from Tomorrow
- 2 Merciless Javelineer
- 2 Never // Return
- 1 Swamp
- 1 Island

+ 3 Bloodrage Brawler
+ 1 Hazoret the Fervent
+ 2 Cut // Ribbons
+ 2 Bloodhall Priest
+ 2 Mountain

Me three! I'm still in crazy idea mode trying out all these stupid builds vs AI. This one seems like it might be ladder viable tho.

Spoiler


Def consider trying out Key to the City and Cathartic Reunion in your build - they are superperformers for me.

I've made some changes that haven't been updated on that thread yet. Can't recall all of them off the dome, but as I recall I cut Shadowstorm Vizier from it (found it underperforming and cut it once I realized I was getting more value from discarding it to recur Scroungers/Haunted Dead - but maybe it's better in yours that looks to be more aggressive where mines built to grind), added Radiant Flames, added the 2nd Key, and some other minor tuning I can't recall at the moment. I already had Reunions in, and they're def great for it.

It's a fun archetype and it's interesting to see people's different takes on it. I like the aggressive take you're messing with. Molten Vortex seems attractive and maybe I've been sleeping on that here, and Enigma Drake wouldn't have been where my mind went but seems fine with all the cycling/discarding filling GY. Tempted to suggest a couple Flings for it but idk what would get cut for room (maybe Manticore instead for discard synergy and embalm for its Fling effect?). I've been very happy with Curator when I've cast it - the scry effect it carries is very helpful for the deck, maybe even more than it's 4/4 body (which is good too of course).

Preferred Pronoun Set: Xhir/xhim, depending on Moon phase
I was gonna say, Pull from Tomorrow doesn't go with Haven...also, I'd cut Oby, Expertises (horrid for your drakes, btw) Javeliners Noxious etc and focus more on Blue cyclers and cheap spells, that in my experience is what this build wants.

Crypbreakers and Ruthless Snipers have worked nicely for me too

May as well throw my grixis variant in as well. Mine has a little different flavor than some of these others. It is intended to play a little more control like, with the win cons coming from sphinx, planeswalkers, or a combination of burn/ drake overwhelm. It's an interesting deck to say the least...take from it what you will!

1cmc
Ruthless Sniper x3 - for damage control

2cmc
Jace, Vryn's Prodigy x1
Wharf Infiltrator x2- been all around useful in a discard tutelage deck
Avacyn's Judgement x2 - this could be something else? Haven't used it yet.
Cathartic Reunion x4 - core card

3cmc
Drake Haven x2 - I like this here because it isn't needed to win, it's secondary, as it should be
Sphinx's Tutelage x3
Fiery Temper x4 - burn outlet
Unlicensed Disintegration x3
Collective Defiance x2- fits the mold of the deck

4cmc
Chandra, Torch of Defiance
Tezzeret the Schemer

5cmc
Archfiend of Ifnir x2
Dark Intimations x2 - just all around fun card
Jace, Unraveler of Secrets
Ob Nixilis Reignited

6cmc
Chandra, Flamecaller

Land- 25 assorted - I did add the Geier reach's
