Some other suggestions:

MAIN DECK:

IF YOU RUN IT IN LEGACY INSTEAD OF MODERN:

  • Putrid Imp (I'm in love with this card, even in decks other than Madness; unlimited manaless discard ability is seriously OP; with this in play you can just pay Madness costs on every spell - adding him would significantly change the value of quite a few cards should you concentrate on only paying Madness costs for no additional cost to discard.)

SIDEBOARD:

and yea like the other guy said, Fiery Temper, Risk Factor, Asylum Visitor and Lingering Souls might be a good place to start. Maybe get some Faithless Looting in there to be more like blue.

I've been going back and forth between Dark Confidant and Asylum Visitor, the visitor is better synergy with Collective Brutality and Liliana of the Veil but it just doesn't draw very many cards. The Bobs are risky but preventing the life loss with Platinum Emperion helps mitigate that. That's also why I'm running 4 Thoughtseize and a City of Brass over Mana Confluence.

There's a bit of a sub theme with self discard powered by Faithless Looting and Lingering Souls. In addition to throwing away either Lingering Souls or Faithless Looting itself to the loot in order to garner half a card, both the cards can also be thrown away to Liliana of the Veil for half a card, and the Asylum Visitor as well can be thrown away and used in such a fashion due to madness, and throwing away all these cards also helps get the madness online. I was trying Dark Confidant in his place but that was bad with Emrakul, the Aeons Torn and I tried Phyrexian Arena but it was just too slow/bad. That's also why there's a Big Game Hunter on the sideboard.

There's lots of little interactions like that I didn't fully explain in the description. Liliana of the Veil is also useful because I can throw away extra copies of Madcap Experiment and Platinum Emperion from the hand, or I can discard an Emrakul, the Aeons Torn to shuffle the Emperion back in for another Madcap. It sounds like a corner case but it does come up every now and then. That all being said though, more bolts and paths may just be the answer here, keeping it simple.

This deck is sweet, but I would reccomend cutting Asylum Visitor to make the deck a bit more consistent by making Path to Exile and Lightning Bolt full playsets as I can see the deck being prone to early aggression. Furthermore Liliana of the Veil seems awkward in this deck as unlike Jund or Abzan your deck isn’t trying to grind out a win through resources but instead looking to win through a very specific Nahiri ult or Madcap play. Thus I reccomend going up to 4 Nahiri, the Harbinger as that is the card likely to win you more games, then I think maybe you want to go with the full set of Faithless Looting to get rid of dead cards late game. You don’t have to cut Lili entirely, but based on how the deck current looks your focus should definitely be on Nahiri foremost.

Seems like a cool idea! I have a few suggestions.

1: Gideon, Ally of Zendikar is probably only good as a 5/5 swinger, as the -4 doesn’t do anything in a mostly spell deck and getting out a single 2/2 every turn is less beneficial than doing 1/4 of the opponent’s life total. Therefore, I think Gideon of the Trials would be a better alternative. He only swings for one less damage, he comes down a turn earlier, and he can prevent damage and stop you from losing the game.

2: Lightning Helix would be a useful one of or two of in the deck, especially since it seems like you lose more than a bit of life early on before you hit empirion.

3: I don’t really like Asylum Visitor. They only draw cards after someone has hellbent, by which point you will probably already have control of the game. That being said, I don’t have any alternative ideas. However, I will say that basically any interaction or draw would do better in that slot.
