You've put together quite a discard engine. You might consider some lower cmc cards to take advantage of it (rather than Archfiend of Ifnir ) Ruthless Sniper can get in there early and make sure your opponent is low on creatures. Faith of the Devoted might have a place as well.

Sorry for taking so long to respond to your comments, I've been especially busy recently.
Not really. Vs control, you have Faith of the Devoted post SB, which can win games by t6-7 as well, which you easily have time for.
Thanks haha! My friend sent me the link, and from there I know that I've peaked.
Yep, the deck is pretty strong imo.
You only really need like 2 or 3 lands off of of your Shefets for them to be good, as you don't really need that much mana, you really just need an extra mana or two to kickstart the combo, as sometimes a single Vizier of Tumbling Sands isn't enough to cast your first Shadow of the Grave.

i've been testing around with a deck that runs Cathartic Reunion to get through my deck faster, and comparing it with tormenting voice, cathartic is generally better. more triggers on all your discarding things, and seeing more cards faster.
is Faith of the Devoted really so important for this deck? i've been thinking something like Bloodrage Brawler might be better, if you're already using drake haven for discard triggers. maybe cut faith of the devoted, and go 3x bloodrage, and 3x drake haven?

- A burn deck that plays the long game a bit by draining with Faith, pinging with Thermo-Alchemist, and fuelling it with Cathartic Reunion and Tormenting Voice?
- A control deck that runs control-y cards like Call the Bloodline and Collective Brutality?
- An aggro deck that plays pretty efficient large creatures like Bloodrage Brawler, Furyblade Vampire, or Bedlam Reveler?
It'll definitely depend on my LGS's meta, but I'd like a second opinion on what seems stronger now that Copycat is gone.

dizzycriminal Unfortunately Shadow of the Grave won't work with any Madness cards, as they get discarded into exile, but it should work with Faith of the Devoted as it only specifies you have to discard the card, it doesn't matter where it goes afterwards. You discard it, that effect goes on the stack, you pay the 1 colourless mana for Faith of the Devoted, then you pay the madness cost for the card being discarded and cast it. That being said, you'll have to look at the specific rules for Faith of the Devoted when they get released.
Archfiend of Ifnir would definitely be good for those long game match-ups or against slower decks. Herald of Anguish might also be one to consider if you're up against any tempo or control decks. Noxious Gearhulk is never a bad include, particularly if you find yourself low on life towards the late game (although your deck has a decent amount of lifegain so you should be fine).
I really like the idea of Bloodhall Priest if you have other ways to draw cards after she attacks, which you've already included so that's not an issue.

Furyblade Vampire is probably going to be better than the Dragoon, the new Bloodrage Ravager is good if you want to be hellbent ready for Hazoret.Another card that likes a thin hand is Bloodhall Priest and you can madness her out.
Archfiend of Ifnir could be good in a long game too.
