Works well. You can be flexible between avoidance, corrupt flesh, thrashing blades and haunted dreams.

Is a Madness build ok for start or is it still best to go Deception first?

For PvP? I would recommend playing darkness or a darkness hybrid until you're geared. Deception and Madness are viable but somewhat squishy early on. Especially if you're solo queueing. If you run with a healer, play whichever you're most comfortable with. If not, the added survivability of darkness makes gearing a bit more tolerable.

Any recommendations on Spec I like the Out of Stealth Spike (Darkness) as well as hard hitting Thrash (Madness) so maybe a Darkness / Madness hybrid?
Thanks

I've always believed duplicity is too good for a first tier ability to not put 3 points in it regardless of your build base.
Beyond that, I've never liked lightning reflexes and especially if you aren't a tank it becomes useless.
Thrashing blades is a good place to put two points but force speed is also a very good place to put them, so be sure you are weighing the costs of those two abilities and mostly consider how much you thrash and how much more or less you'll be on target with a lower cd force speed.
The actual madness tree points are very good and need no adjusting.

Of the two builds you posted the first is clearly better. I just recommend you consider force speed over thrashing blades, but both options are very viable and very good.
