Card Draw Tag

So I just made a Jhoira, Weatherlight Legends deck, focussing on Legends (of course) with a card draw theme.

With a Card Draw theme I mean cards like Jori En, Ruin Diver, Kraum, Ludevic's Opus and Honden of Seeing Winds for straight up card draw.

Cards like Alandra, Sky Dreamer and Minn, Wily Illusionist for second card drawn each turn (I know this is a tag already).

Cards that pay of drawing lots of cards like Niv-Mizzet, Parun, Niv-Mizzet, the Firemind, The Locust God and Teferi, Temporal Pilgrim.

Cards that pay you off for having lots of cards in hand like Alrund, God of the Cosmos  Flip, Hisoka, Minamo Sensei and Meishin, the Mind Cage.

And other cards with card draw synergies like Teferi's Ageless Insight and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries.

Also cards that grant an unlimited hand size like Nezahal, Primal Tide, Thought Vessel, Decanter of Endless Water, Wizard Class and the good old Reliquary Tower.

So how come there is no Card Draw tag yet?

Card Draw is a very broad category that almost every deck uses in some form or another. The dividing line between a combo or control deck that just wants to draw a lot to find its win condition and a deck like this that actually uses the act of drawing as a resource is very fuzzy, and my concern is that the hub will be diluted with decks that run playsets of Opt and Serum Visions with a couple Archmage Emeritus and no other significant draw effects, or something similar. I'm willing to consider other names for this hub, but I haven't found one with the right balance of precision and inclusion yet--they're either broad to the point of universal, or so narrow that only a couple of decks would qualify.

For future reference, this is a thread for this sort of suggestion.
