@protoaddict Songs of the damned, right? Well, at least madness doesn't get hit by GY hate, so you can kinda make a survival with some combo that's not hit by graveyard hate. I've always loved madness, but I agree with most you are saying. It makes madness better, but not yet playable. It's probably like sigarda's aid was when it got released. Those cards make the archetype way more appealing, but maybe we need some colossus hammer to make it viable.
Or maybe it's waiting for some people to brew something and discover it's good. After all, madness = card advantage. We don't have to make a full madness deck to make it work. Looting effects with the kind of power we have in vintage may make ir work.
