I considered both early on actually..

The Cryptborn Horror is a rather conditional win-more card..

Avatar of Discord on the other hand, would be absolutely beastly in a dedicated Madness or Torpor Orb deck, but is strictly card disadvantage in anything else..

I know it's probably been a while, bit how do you feel about Cryptborn Horror or Avatar of Discord?

-Ugh. Selfless Spirit. Commence nightmares.

-Altar of Dementia and Millstone are interesting choices. You can target yourself to load up your graveyard.

-Some creature ideas. I'm pretty sure these work, since their base power is 0, and they don't get the counters until they enter the battlefield:

Enjoy your brewing!

Personally, with the amount of burn you've got going on here... Cryptborn Horror could be a great finisher.

Brute Force +2 // Uncanny Speed -2 // Fists of the Anvil -1 // Temur Battle Rage -2 // Undying Evil +2 // Soul's Fire -2 // Spell Pierce +3 //Cryptborn Horror -2 // Goblin Electromancer +2 // Jeskai Sage -2 // Vampire Hexmage +2 //Fate Foretold -2 // Skin Invasion -2 // Cathartic Reunion +2 //

Quite the rebuild but, you have so many different cards at different mana-speed-levels that the deck won't perform very consistent

Thought about it some more:

If you have the budget, Snapcaster Mage seems like an all-around upgrade on Jeskai Sage. It works better with Thing in the Ice  Flip and you could even cast Fling on itself out of the graveyard.

And maybe one Bedlam Reveler instead of a Cryptborn Horror
