Discard a card, Sacrifice Insolent Neonate: Draw a card.
Insolent Neonate Discussion

No, Caustic Caterpillar is not necessary. Like I mention in the 'Card Choices' section though, I love having a 1-drop that Convokes for Hogaak's Hybrid cost and provides a mainboard answer to Ensnaring Bridge and the occasional maindeck gravehate card. Insolent Neonate and Abrupt Decay / Assassin's Trophy are other solid options for the slots.

Looks decent for going with the madness route. I feel almost like Liliana of the Veil might be better here than Sorin given your madness focus and your low curve.

Two main questions:

I'm not really sold on the cycling stuff though. if you have a blink engine on board ( Skybind would go well with the enchantress stuff), there are a lot of creatures that will just put cards into your hand instead of filtering them.

Alms Collector + wheel of your choice. Wheel of Fortune Winds of Change Reforge the Soul Wheel of Fate Memory Jar . The alms collector is strong against decks that draw cards, and wheels are powerful even without the bonus lockout and draw from the alms collector.
Goblin Welder + Memory Jar . At the cost of an sacrifice an artifact you get to draw 7 cards a turn that you get to abuse better than your opponent due to them leaving EOT. Welder has big potential for abuse with other cards, and can recur pieces of the combos you've already mentioned. Memory Jar is used with Alms collector and has the words "Draw 7 cards on it" outside of combo usage.
Kor Spiritdancer / Mesa Enchantress / Sram, Senior Edificer + Mark of Fury / Flickering Ward . Mark of fury is obviously better and easier to slot, but Flickering Ward serves as reusable protection for creatures you want to survive a round or two, and if it resolves you can stop yourself getting 2-for-1'd by returning it to hand. Similar situation with Kor Spiritdancer and the enchantress, one is obviously better but if you're running this engine your deck is going to be wanting enchantments anyways (maybe some future enchantress damage commander?) to benefit extra value of enchantresses. Either way, enchantress + Mark of fury is a draw every turn for just
Astral Slide or Astral Drift + Seasoned Pyromancer is very bonkers. You obviously put it into a cycling deck. You pay 1 for the cycle to draw 1, then get 2 loots from the pyromancer while getting 2 critters. Digging 3 deep while keeping 1 is better than Burning Inquiry or Faithless Looting , and you get up to 2 tokens. Another deck specific engine, despite being fantastic. There's also the new red Tectonic Reformation to GREATLY improve this build. Honestly you could probably mash this together with the enchantress one for a laugh.
Enduring Renewal + Phyrexian Altar + creature of your choice gets some interesting effects. Mesa Enchantress + Hopeful Eidolon / Nyxborn Rollicker lets you draw through. Seasoned Pyromancer lets you filter a LOT of cards and build a large board of tokens. Insolent Neonate lets you filter through your entire library. Thraben Inspector gives you an infinite amount of clues for draws. Priest of Urabrask gives infinite mana, which isn't draws but relevant to Altar
Enduring Renewal has other combo options outside Altar or draws. Priest of Urabrask + free sac outlet is infinite sacs, great with something like Altar of the Brood or Altar of Dementia . Renewal can also loop with free sac outlets with 0 cost creatures.

Why actually dredge doesn't play Insolent Neonate ?
I put it in my Dredgevine decklist, that is an actual version of Dredgevine designed by me, and it looks very fine.

Padapos sure, buddy. Sure. Every Control deck that plays black plays discard spells. This is true in standard, modern, and legacy. Vintage is too fast for discard. Discard is great against everything lmao. Even dredge if you can nail a Faithless Looting or Insolent Neonate

Is there some sort of efficient shell for Hogaak that isn’t just dredge? Anyone want to talk about brewing a deck around it or seeing if it solves any problems a previously existing archetype had?
Off the top of my head I thought a jund vengvine deck based off the R/G vengvine/hollow one decks that fell out of favor to the R/B hollow decks. Some Insolent Neonate and Stitcher's Supplier to pitch vengvines and stock up for Hokaag. Any thoughts?
