SueMe on Hogaak: My Favorite (Infinite) Combo Deck

1 week ago

Yo v1ns4n1ty!

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.

Yeah I noticed a couple of the combos. I LOVE the bombardment combo, that looks like a rage quit combo to me haha, this deck looks super fun. I like the kind of decks where you can include combos, but not depend on them. I typically use Altar of the Brood instead of Altar of Dementia, but run lots of 3 or 4 piece ashnods/phyrexian altar shenanigans in my Meren and Ayara decks using all the usual suspects like Tenacious Dead Bloodsoaked Champion and the other crawlers with Pitiless Plunderer and Pawn of Ulamog. The combos dont need to go off to play or win, but they sure are fun to brew up!

Glad you like it =). This deck is short on 1 drops, though I'm not sure what I would take out to try it. I'm gonna experiment with this a bit and if I don't include it here I'll probably add this to my Vampire deck to set up Oathsworn Vampire (Oathsworn Vampire + Pitiless Plunderer + Bontu's Monument = Infinite counters through Cordial Vampire).

Thanks! I had a random copy of Pitiless Plunderer and I realized it would be pretty dope. Also a foil Sling-Gang Lieutenant, which is cool. I think 4 mana to drain someone for 3 and draw 3 cards and buff Korvold a few times is purdy gud.

Trashcan on Mazirek Crop Self-destruction

king-saproling Thanks.

I probably should include Pitiless Plunderer and Squandered Resources they kinda help with the land destruction theme. The lands are also pretty solid and cheap additions.

The creatures are nice but my deck tries to sacrifice all of my own lands so i kinda valued token generation and draw more.

Thanks for the suggestions!

Nice list! You might like these: Nature's Revolt, Squandered Resources, Cauldron of Souls, Blighted Woodland, Jund Panorama, Grim Backwoods, Pitiless Plunderer (this guy is really cool cuz sacking the treasures triggers Mazirek), Fleshbag Marauder, Tribute to the Wild, Nim Devourer (you can sack the nim to itself for its ability, so it essentially gives you the ability to pay BB: put a + counter on all your dudes), Sporeback Troll, Oona's Blackguard, Winding Constrictor
