As an additional cost to play Carrion, sacrifice a creature.
Put X 0/1 black Insect creature tokens into play, where X is the sacrificed creature's power.

I find EDH Hogaak fascinating as a deck.
I don't see Grafted Exoskeleton on your list actually, though you mentioned it in the comments. There's also Glistening Oil if you haven't considered it.
Birthing Pod + Hogaak --> Craterhoof is a combo not on here which is pretty clean, if not infinite.

I can definitely say I see more playability with your deck considering a couple of creature based opponents are around. yes Greater Good is excellent, especially since you can just use it as a free sac outlet if he gets targeted. Rishkar's Expertise is bonkers with Kresh, especially if you draw into Eternal Witness
For my Kresh I do try to favor permanents outside of boardwipes and ramp so Carrion , whilst playable, isnt really the way I want to take him. I used to run Grim Haruspex and Harvester of Souls but I wasnt happy with how they went so moved them to other decks with more death triggers per turn.
I do need to run Sidisi and Plaguecrafter as they are really good, also Chandra's Ignition is going in haha.

I like the shadow born apostle idea. Seeing as how there’ll be an Essence Warden out for all the life triggers, a Wall of Limbs could be added as well. It’s worked great in the current Ghave version and in conjunction with Jared, it becomes far better than its current ability, but at least there's a backup ability if Jared's not on the field.
Going off the Krav and Wall of Limbs idea: I’ve got a Kresh the Bloodbraided deck where I use giant kresh to kill people with Dying Wish and Jarad effects. However, I have another where I turn him into many small creatures (for Impact Tremors effects) which I then sac back into big creatures ( Carrion Feeder or Skullmulcher for Blood Artist effects) something that could be an interesting direction with Carnival and the creature etb triggers for into Exsanguinate or swampy tricks.
Here's the deck for ideas/conversation's sake - you all will be the first to see it. It wasn't ready to go public cause I'm editing up the flavour story still and need to balance it a bit more for consistency... It's got a side mill strategy but mainly kills through ''growth and decay'' (hence the name). I think it could inform a strong take on a Carnival version, related to the style seshiro_of_the_orochi is hinting at. I'd add carnival to it actually, if I didn't have to remove much of the synergy the deck needs for the Essence Warden and other life gain effects.

Gotcha. I would just go with sac outlets, then. Phyrexian Tower just went from like $60 to $10 because of the reprint. Infernal Offering , Recurring Nightmare , Rescue from the Underworld , Victimize , and Whisper, Blood Liturgist all offer recursion. Altar's Reap , Fling , Costly Plunder , Culling the Weak , Plunge into Darkness , Vicious Offering , Devour Flesh , Merciless Resolve , Sacrifice , Collateral Damage , Burnt Offering , Carrion , Fiery Conclusion , Spontaneous Combustion , and Dredge are all better instant-speed ways to leverage Xantcha. Or you could just Inferno or Starstorm to kill the board.

I also really like Cauldron Dance too, especially with the built in sac and ETB triggers - let's you get 3 ETB's in one creature (first play, cauldron dance, replay) such a great value card for Kresh, and I can see it being super fun in conjunction with Deathrender, other recursion/ETB. I guess Cauldron Dance just hasn't made it into mine because of there not being quite enough, and the casting cost. I don't believe Deathrender is necessarily better than Caldron Dance because the caldron does something so unique.
I had been thinking of Warstorm Surge in a version as well. aActually I'm considering a Kresh token deck that I'll share with you if you're interested when I've got the bulk of it together, but I don't think Ghoulcaller Gisa made it onto that list and Ogre Battledriver is also a fantastic addition. Korozda Guildmage and Carrion can both get a large amount of tokens out fast with Kresh, the Carrion wouldn't work with Warstorm Surge. I'll have to review my list when I get the chance, but I feel there's 1-2 others. My other idea is continuing on with the with that theme is the Warstorm Surge and adding Purphoros, God of the Forge type mechanics. But that's a whole other focus.
Maybe Vicious Shadows could be a great addition here?, though I haven't reviewed the mana curve yet.
Rite of the Raging Storm is a fun favourite for me in Kresh.
I really like the recursion focus here. It could be quite fun and I'd like to do a built of this style at one point.
I'd be interested to hear if you have any ideas for my Mutiny & Martyr version of Kresh.

IAmTheWraith: Muldrotha is fucking BONKERS. I'm heavily considering transforming my Sidisi deck to be underneath him instead. At the very least, either belongs in the 99 of the other.
Also, there's a BUNCH of silly things you can do with Torgaar, not least Carrion effects :3

If you can amplify your sac effect to make opponents sac, like with a Grave Pact, Dictate of Erebos, or Butcher of Malakir, you might be able to clear away enough blockers for a sweet Vraska, Scheming Gorgon ultimate. Innocent Blood might help, too, as might other token producers like Carrion, Grave Titan, and Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet.
