Other creatures to consider would be Olivia, Mobilized for War, Furyblade Vampire, and Incorrigible Youths. In particular, if you want to take this in a more Aggro direction, Furyblade Vampire and Incorrigible Youths make for a nice combo, as the discard effect on Furyblade Vampire happens at the beginning of combat, so you could effectively discard Incorrigible Youths, pay its madness cost, and attack with it straight away.
Hope that helps!

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.

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.

My faith was gone long before the door! lol. This looks interesting though.

dizzycriminal, according to the MTG page on Gamepedia, Madness does count as discarding. I assume you meant that you thought Madness replaces discarding? Or are you talking about something else that I'm not catching.
"When you cast a card with madness, it still counts as being discarded, but it doesn't actually get to your graveyard before you cast it. That means your opponent can't exile it "in response" to stop you from playing the spell. Abilities that trigger on a card being discarded, however, will still trigger." http://mtg.gamepedia.com/Madness
I'm checking with the live DCI judge now though just to be sure my idea works. http://chat.magicjudges.org/mtgrules/

MadMadison, thanks for the suggestions! Yeah I guess there wouldn't be much to use Shadow of the Grave for due to Madness, good catch! I think I want to try this out essentially creatureless first and see how it goes. Maybe make a different version that is more creature-based too.

I have been playing Madness decks since Kaladesh, Key to the City is amazing. probably one of the few ways to skirt an attacker past a bigger blocker and well, trigger madness.

Thanks for the suggestion Zaraeleus! I'm brewing a separate creature-heavy version of this deck too and Key will definitely go in it.

This is my AMKT build, feel free to take ideas, i may find time to dump my build from AER that was terrorizing my local (undefeated last 2 weeks at lgs, top 4 weekly) But the current build has the same idea at heart. now that cat is banned might shove Ballista back to the side, although it makes an excellent finisher.

Cool build Struyk, deffo a more creature-heavy version.
