Does lighter driver head promote a draw?

I have replaced my M1 driver that had an extra 10g in the head. I am not sure of the actual swing weight but it just felt right. My normal miss was a push fade with an occasional slice if I got lazy. I have picked up a stock rogue and I have a hard time feeling the head but I have been seeing my miss be a pull with a slight draw even when struck out of the heel. I'm really liking the forgiveness and dispersion out of this driver. Should I expect to see a the push fade bias come back if I wanted to add weight to get the feel I prefer?

Lead tape weights on driver. Put weight on Heels = draw.     Put weight on Toe = fade.   Put weight on back = higher

Not weight shaft make draw or fade.  Your feel right swing weight.

I don't think it promotes a certain flight, but it can certainly exasperated an existing one.

From my experience, when I use a driver or wood that has a lower swingweight I hook the ball like crazy. Once i add weight back to the head I'm able to straighten things out.

Yes it can, for some players.  With the driver being the longest length club, it won't always be the best fit to have the same swing-weight as what fits us in a shorter length club.  We're better off fitting "blind" to swing-weight and testing with impact spray and ball flight.  Don't be reluctant to use a lower swing-weight than we would have assumed we'd benefit from
