A lot of drummers do this (or some variation with an IEM mix) these days. A bunch of drummers also take the option to have a wired IEM mix go to a small mixer along with click and whatever track is played, to be able to coordinate the various signals they are dealing with.
You want control, that's the best way to get it.
What are you not getting from the FOH mix? Does your mixer know what you want in terms of depth, color, and blend? I'm really curious as to how you know whats wrong with the house mix, unless you have a drum tech play the kit and you walk around the venue...because what you hear at the drum kit is NOT what they hear in front of the stage.
