Hermit Druid I'd say is a must. Cephalid Illusionist , another creature and any 0 cost artifact will also help you get cards in the Graveyard. Plan to put in creatures that can copy or recur any key creature pieces that have been milled? The Mimeoplasm ?
Also, I'm building a Grismold, the Dreadsower deck that utilises -1/-1 enchantment anthems to remove the tokens. Might be worth trying?

bushido_man96 Jarad's Orders is absolutely superior to Vampiric Tutor . It's a bit less competitive (a good thing for my groups), much more on theme, and the utility of bringing a creature to your hand and the graveyard is excellent! I often find Hermit Druid or Laboratory Maniac or even Plaguecrafter for the hand while also getting a sweet creature for the graveyard. Thank you for the suggestion!

I like the deck a lot after playing a few games with it. A few suggestions--Why is Misdirection in the deck? A better card would be Stifle . So often Misdirection is just a dead card. Also, various nonbasic lands are nice, but I played with all basics, and I found it worked just fine. 20 islands and 17 mountains were good. Since we're not playing Hermit Druid , there's little reason not to use them, especially with Blood Moon and Back to Basics in the deck.

Thanks for the upvote and the suggestions!
Yeah Zombie Infestation is definitely one of my favorites.
At first, I was skeptical about the Syr Konrad, the Grim idea, because it seemed to be doing exactly what our combo was doing, and I didn't want to use up another card slot for another Altar of Dementia , but after some thought, I'm starting to reconsider. Maybe Konrad doesn't need a combo to be deadly. I'm picturing a scenario with Konrad on the battlefield, and then resolving a Living Death . Or even just drawing a whole bunch of cards, then discarding a whole bunch of creatures. It'll be something interesting to try out.
I put Desecrated Tomb into my Marchesa, the Black Rose deck, and it did really well, but I don't think it'll do too well in Hogaak's case. In general, I try to stray away from exiling creatures from my graveyard, but even if I did start exiling them, I don't picture myself getting that many bats....
I've never been too much into the token build. I usually don't need a whole bunch of tokens to replay Hogaak, though there are a couple times when I'm short on creatures. I don't think I'll need the Plague of Vermin or the Spontaneous Generation if I'm being honest.
I feel like for each person who makes this deck, they have to make the decision between Hermit Druid and Traverse the Outlands . I personally think I'm fine without the Hermit, so that's why I don't include it and have the Traverse instead.
Now Cadaverous Bloom .... Wow. Just wow. I think this card is busted, and I'm surprised that this is the first time I've ever heard of it. I know it exiles, but that's a small enough price to pay when you're drawing 8 cards a turn. A definite include.
I think I've put in and taken out Skirge Familiar twice now. It's good, but sometimes I need to replace it with some better stuff. For example, that Cadaverous Bloom you just mentioned! If I have the space, I'll add it in.
I think Living Death is enough. I don't particularly need a whole bunch of mass recursion.
Again, thanks for the suggestions! I know I'm rejecting a whole lot of them, but I'd rather stay honest, than give people my false opinions. But that doesn't mean people shouldn't give me a whole bunch of suggestions; the more the merrier!

Great list +1
I'm building Hogaak this week and I'm excited to finally play Zombie Infestation .
How would you rate the following in Hogaak?
Cadaverous Bloom ...for the combo turns?

You're running too many basics to be doing the Hermit Druid thing. Try adding in stuff like the artifact lands, Pendelhaven , Centaur Garden , Cabal Pit , so that the Druid will consistently mill a decent amount. I'd honestly say try to get your basics down to 5 or less, which is admittedly hard in a 2-color deck, but it'll be worth it.
Also, I feel like if any deck wants Grothama, All-Devouring , this might be it.

reyalfluos, I've been playing this deck for a year or so now, and I don't think I've ever encountered a Blood Moon , to be honest. The deck does run seven counterspells to combat spells like Blood Moon . It even runs Pact of Negation and Force of Will to really hit it home. The idea of the Hermit Druid plus Laboratory Maniac / Jace, Wielder of Mysteries came from a cEDH Thrasios, Triton Hero and Tymna the Weaver deck.

ArthurDayne Thank you for the upvote. The deck no longer runs Hermit Druid so there is no real reason for me to stick to zero basics. If one of each is too few to be reliable against Bad Moon then I think they are also too few for the downsides to be noticeable. Jaymc1130 pretty much sums up the other reasons why running basics is a good idea. Besides, our win cons are very mana efficient so fetching for an Island early in the game is usually enough to negate Blood Moon effects.
As for Reanimate, the deck runs a Spellseeker + Reanimate line that allows us to deal with Cursed Totem . Using the said line, we use Flash Hulk to put Carrion Feeder, Nomads en-Kor, Leonin Relic-Warder and Spellseeker into play. Warder takes care of the Totem, Spellseeker tutors for Reanimate. We then Reanimate the Hulk for a second Hulk trigger to assemble the missing pieces to win the game.
