- Can I boost Murderous Redcap's Power before its triggered ability resolves?
- If I have both Sharuum the Hegemon and Sculpting Steel on the battlefield, can I infinitely sac one of them to Ashnod's Altar?
- Am I missing something?...
- Can you sac Tetravus with undying at the beginning of upkeep to create infinite tokens?
- please explain to me further regarding the rule"You cannot sacrifice a creature that is already on its way to the graveyard"

That's cool! I've dipped my toes in the Inspired mechanic a little bit with King Macar, the Gold-Cursed, but I never checked Scryfall for all the potential Inspiring creatures. I think Pain Seer is definitely worth a try. Budget Bob is nothing to scoff at. It's cheap, it's a creature and it draws. That's what this deck needs.
Thanks man! Now, that you mention it, I'll put Dark Confidant in the Maybeboard for anyone who has the cash. Awesome stuff!

Also heads up, your mana combos involving Grinning Ignus don't make infinite, they just allow you to filter red into colorless. If you had a Prismite or something similar out, then you could do it infinitely (except your Molten Echoes example would require even more setup to work, e.g. Prismite + Ashnod's Altar).

Yeah this deck definitely has got some punch. I considered taking the Phyrexian Altar out for a couple of games, because things were getting a little out of hand with my playgroup. I figured I'd try just going for the Pitiless Plunderer and the Ashnod's Altar instead, but then the whole pandemic thing started, so....
The discard outlets are definitely underrated for Hogaak, so I'm glad you found that part useful!
Interesting. Thought Gorger is another one of those cards I've never seen before. It can be risky if you often find yourself having something you really want to keep in your hand, but I suppose that there will be situations when it'll be powerful. The idea is interesting, but it really needs a sacrifice outlet to work. And if I already have the Greater Good out, then I'll be already winning by drawing a lot of cards.
It might be an interesting piece of tech in my Marchesa, the Black Rose deck, which has a lot of sac-outlets. I can imagine just cycling away a whole bunch of hands each turn cycle....
Thanks for stopping by, and giving me some ideas! I really do appreciate.

This deck is great! I have been refining a Korvold, Fae-Cursed King land and creature sac deck, and this has given me some ideas.
For land recursion, I recommend Splendid Reclamation. With Ayula's Influence and Ashnod's Altar, I had 38 mana turn 7. It can really turn things around. For sacrificing lands, I like God-Eternal Bontu. It gives quite a bit of card advantage, and having a Korvold or Gitrog will double that.

No, you can't respond to Ashnod's Altar's ability because it's a mana ability. Mana abilities don't use the stack and resolve immediately. Whoever had priority to take an action when a mana ability was first activated/triggered has priority again after it resolves, and no one can make any responses.

Yes, that works. The Stinkweed Imp will die as part of the cost for Ashnod's Altar and goes to the graveyard. This triggers Grim Haruspex. Once the trigger resolves, you may Dredge provided the Imp hasn't been removed from your graveyard.
