want to pivot away from the Madness part of the 2019 Madness deck and make it a more control or combo Self Discard. Aside from Archfiend of Ifner and Malfegor what non Madness cards take advantage of self Discard?

This may not be exactly the answer you're looking for, but as someone who's a Golgari player at heart, the first thing that comes to mind when I hear self-discard is recursion and reanimation. Get some fat stuff in your hand, dump it into the yard for value, and then bring it out to beat the snot out of your opponents. Get your Living Death, your Stitch Together, your Crucible of Worlds, and your Scrap Mastery and turn that supposed card disadvantage into just an extension of your hand.

When I played Malfegor (this was a long time ago), I tried to leverage Hellbent cards. Being in topdeck mode was kinda bleh, but cards like Twinstrike felt real good (as did Anthem of Rakdos.

There are a few 'heckbent' cards now, as well. Hazoret the Fervent is a good beater.

Thanks, since it seems like their isn't alot of cards I'm looking for(hellbent and heckbent cards don't seem to me to have powerful enough effects for their cost and I was more looking for a card that said something like (when you discard a card do Y, which hellbent and heckbent don't)) I'll do Uktabi_Kong idea and go recursion
