After playtesting a similiar brew, I'm not sold on Drake haven or Faith of the Devoted in this deck... I think Archfiend of Ifnir and Curator of Mysteries actually want more cheap cyclers to enable their payoffs more than the deck wants another payoff in the form of the enchantments. Removing them for more versatile and cheap cyclers also allows you to reduce the land count by on or two.

In place of the enchantments, I'd suggest trying a few Hieroglyphic Illuminations as both another source of card draw and cheap () cycling. I'd also recommend a couple copies of Grasp of Darkness and Essence Scatter for more ways to deal with Gods, other big creatures, and Felidar Guardian. You may even be able to cut a copy of Anguished Unmaking at that point. Lastly I think I'd recommend a couple Negates.

Just my thoughts! Maybe you've found your shell to be better at utilizing the enchantments but I've found Archfiend and Curator can beat down well enough on their own backed up by more spells!

Archfiend of Ifnir and Curator of Mysteries look like great bomb rares for the archetype. Shadow of the Grave looks like a rare you get late in the draft that offers great value for this deck.

I feel like Faith of the Devoted and Drake haven are great build around enchantments.

Horror of the Broken Lands is a decent curve topper that cycles for cheap and Hekma Sentinels offer a nice mid game threat.

Scarab Feast, Censor, Hieroglyphic Illumination, and Compelling Argument all cycle for one mana. It makes me wonder if Grixis is a viable option with the ability to fill the graveyard with instants and sorceries.

Warfire Javelineer, Flameblade Adept, and Enigma Drake look like good additions to the deck if you go three colors, or even U/R. I feel like blue is the main color that makes this Archetype work.
