Create a 1/2 green Spider creature token with reach for each creature card in your graveyard.
Flashback (You may cast this card from your graveyard for its flashback cost, then exile it.)

Awesome strategy! Mass dredge decks often go unfettered because nobody thinks to run graveyard hate.
May I recommend Nihil Spellbomb ? I tend to prefer it over Tormod's Crypt . Jarad's Orders is both flavorful and effective, Night Soil is interesting, Victimize is horrendously efficient, Grisly Salvage can dig for lands and stock the yard, Chain of Smog is hilariously underrated and great for politics (use with care), Millikin can mill and ramp, and Spider Spawning grants a small army.

Dude! I think you're selling yourself short with this one! You could put wayyy more tokens into this and break it... get those Blood Artist triggers.
Endrek Sahr, Master Breeder , Infernal Genesis , Awaken the Erstwhile , Plague of Vermin , Worm Harvest , Izoni, Thousand-Eyed , Spider Spawning , Tombstone Stairwell ... Tendershoot Dryad ... I can go on :)
Stinkweed Imp ... more dredge!
Hogaak was so good they had to ban him in Modern lol.

Gazdrazil, Arachnawakener Matriarch
Legendary Creature - Spider Shaman
Reach, deathtouch, lifelink, vigilance
At the beginning of each upkeep, if Gazdrazil, Arachnawakener Matriarch is in the command zone, create a 1/2 green spider creature token with reach. It deals 1 damage to you.
For each spider creature card tapped or exiled to pay this creature's delve and convoke costs, you lose 1 life and put the top card of your library into your graveyard.
5 / 8
Create the vehicle depicted in any of the following cards: Battle Squadron , Mizzix of the Izmagnus , or Sling-Gang Lieutenant . (and if you do Sling-Gang, don't just do a reprint of Goblin Bombardment but make it more interesting. Bonus points if equally hilarious.)

austintayshus and Quicksilver I had originally ran Spider Spawning and tested with Victimize in my initial build but my local meta became fast to run these cards which lead to this degenerate iteration
I am also planning on putting out a more budget version of this deck, as it is starting to reach cEDH power levels

Deck's really cool. But I have a few suggestions (Take them with a grain of salt)
Add: Nyx Weaver , fills your graveyard and can get you back an important card. Soul's Majesty , A worse Rishkar's Expertise is still pretty good. Winding Way , Helps fill up your hand and your graveyard. Springbloom Druid , Ramps, provides a creature to convoke, and puts a land in your graveyard to help delve Hogaak. Worm Harvest / Spider Spawning , Puts lands into your graveyard and makes a bunch of tokens. Also can be played from your graveyard when you inevitably mill them. Feed the Pack , Turn's Hogaak into a ton of wolves which you can use to convoke him. Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord , benefits from having a big graveyard and can sacrifice hogaak or any other creature to take out chunks of people's life totals. Regrowth , just a nice card to have when you're milling yourself.
Remove: Golgari Brownscale , it only dredges 2 cards at a time, and takes up your draw to do so. I think it's too slow. Necropolis Fiend , This card's just going to eat away at your graveyard, for not much payoff. You want your graveyard full for cards like Hogaak and Izoni. Slitherhead , Just doesn't do much to be honest. You can do better than a single +1/+1 counter. Viscera Seer , Doesn't do much either. It's basically 2 mana to draw a card, the unearth isn't going to useful very often. Vilis, Broker of Blood , Awesome, awesome card. But you don't have any ways to reanimate him or get him into play otherwise, and 8 mana seems like a lot for a deck with 35 lands. Doom Blade , Not the worst, but there's some better removal spells that aren't any more expensive. Immortal Coil , This card is only good if your graveyard has more cards in it than your life total, and it also is probably going to eat at your graveyard a lot.

Huh! Been a while since I saw this, I like where it's gone :) I'd say the biggest improvement would be to add several powerful reanimation spells such as Victimize , Animate Dead , and Dance of the Dead . These let you quickly recur Protean if your initial combo fails to go off, as well as pull it out of GY off a turn 1 Entomb . I'd run either of these over Intruder Alarm (too situational) or Spider Spawning (too high of a CMC and requires a lot of setup).
Beyond that, Dark Ritual seems like an important source of ramp, and I'd add a Mana Crypt if your budget can support it. You're running a LOT of land, I wouldn't run more than 34 here if you add a bit more ramp.

Spider Spawning could be fun in this deck?

Hey juiicyfruities, thanks for the feedback!
I like Coat of Arms too, but the meta I mentioned in the deck's description is other tribal decks. So unfortunately, that card will help all the opponents out just as much. Thus, I like Vanquisher's Banner much better. But it competes with Ishkanah's CMC and I'm not sure what effect I'd take out for it. Any suggestions on what to take out?
I tried out Spider Spawning , but it never worked well. I don't run enough creatures to guarantee more than a couple in the graveyard.
Dragonlair Spider is one of the best spiders, but the tokens aren't spiders, so they don't synergize with Ishkanah's ability. And the double red in the cost is more difficult to simply splash for.
I'm going to try the Arachnus Spinner + Arachnus Web combo. I'm just not sure what to take out for them, though. I have to be careful to keep my card types balanced for Delirium, and my current creatures and enchantments are must-haves! Since I churn through so much of my deck and can easily get the Spinner out of the graveyard, I'm thinking of adding just 1-2 Spinner and 2 Web. We'll see how that goes.
