Reckless Wurm seems a valid option for this deck. Would consider removing Twins of Maurer Estate and Gorgon Recluse .

SMASHER101 on Help! BG Deathtouch Deck

Graveblade Marauder was in my old deathtouch and lifelink deck. Otherwise I would suggest not playing Zulaport Cutthroat because it only triggers on your opponent's creatures.

My sudggestions for improvement:

+2 Ambush Viper flash + deathtouch is good

+2 Poison-Tip Archer you said this worked well so play 4

+4 Blood Artist More of the same effect is good

+1 Rancor amazing card

+4 Grave Titan better win con than varaska.

+4 narnum renegade better 1 mana deathtoucher

+4 Graveblade Marauder I like this card in deathtouch decks

+21 cards

-2 Gorgon Recluse too high mana cost and no way to madness it.

-2 Vraska the Unseen too slow of a win con.

-3 Pharika's Chosen narnum renegade is better.

-2 Nyx Weaver has no synergy here.

-1 Hythonia the Cruel too slow and expensive.

-2 Primal Rage

-3 Unholy Strength

-2 Wreath of Geists

-2 Boar Umbra

-2 Reaper of the Wilds Blood Artist is better and you have to pay to give this deathtouch.

-21 cards

auras are not good unless they are put on hexproof creatures. Except for Rancor that card is great because it returns to your hand. Pump spells are not great outside of stompy and infect decks.

You could potentially cheat out decent spells with their madness cost...things like Asylum Visitor, Alms of the Vein, Big Game Hunter, Fiery Temper, Bloodhall Priest, From Under the Floorboards, Gorgon Recluse, and Dark Withering.

These are all pretty cheap and have some decent abilities...

Araignee on BR Madness

Hi! Thanks for your deck, I am a big fan of non-UG madness myself.

Cards to consider, espcially if you feel mana-confident:Violent Eruption as it helps wipe out several smaller creatures and can be nice against aggro decks. Arc Trail works similarly and you can cast it from your hand.

I tried to put together a GR spellshaper madness and even though I have a weak spot for Bola Warrior, it is not very mana-efficient and you cannot use it outside combat, which is the main hinderance of most of your discard outlets. I would suggest Kris Mage who is cheaper to cast and more versatile, especially against aggros. Or you can use her to finish off a bigger creature. Or in the worst Undertaker.

If you are not playing against black and you feel you can muster toghether BB, Gorgon Recluse could be nice.

Any particular reason for not running the Twins of Maurer Estate since you feature them on the deck description?

As for discard outlets, what about Heir of Falkenrath  Flip?

hi,
nice deck although personally i would remove Incorrigible Youths && Gorgon Recluse cause they both cost to much,even on madness.
Going on the value side i would add resuable creatures from grave.Shambling Remains and Extractor Demon are basically the same although you do get to attack only once,but i would prefer the haste on demand rather the discard maybe permanent.
Also aint 18 lands low even for aggro? i mean how do you expect to cast Crumble to Dust reliably? Maybe go 20lands?
Other than that +1 on the build seems solid enough.

Crayfish on Jund Mad Baddies

Flaying Tendrils > Biting Rain. I dont care if it has madness, tendrils is awesome. Exiling is extremely powerful.

Other madness creatures that can synergize with Lotleth Troll: Arrogant Wurm, Big Game Hunter, Gorgon Recluse, Grave Scrabbler, Muck Drubb, Reckless Wurm.

Other madness cards in general: Avacyn's Judgment, Gibbering Descent, Senseless Rage, Strength of Lunacy.

Fetches can help with your manabase.

With the large amount of, well, aggro in this deck, might I suggest Gaea's Anthem, Beastmaster Ascension, Whip of Erebos, or Bow of Nylea? Those could help.

Also, Having 2 discard enablers, one being creature specific, is not recommended. With discard being so heavily needed, more outlets are in demand.

Hickorysbane on Malfegor EDH

I love it :3 looks fun to play and more functional that most Malfegor builds. Asylum Visitor acts kinda like Blood Scrivener, but potentially better. Murderous Compulsion, Brink of Madness, Gorgon Recluse, Stensia Masquerade and Psychotic Episode all look like playable madness spells. Ruby Medallion and Jet Medallion look good in this deck, and especially so if you're trying to dump your hand early, or play your demon dragon with madness spells. Malfegor reliably triggers ferocious for Flamewake Phoenix and (even though it's not synergistic) Temur Battle Rage
