Two cards I will always recommend for madness decks are Shadow of the Grave and Skirge Familiar . They are among the strongest discard theme cards out there and will definitely improve the deck.

If you need more removal or better control against decks with creatures, I'd suggest Archfiend of Ifnir , the card is amazing and if you don't need it, just draw a card off it.

In general, I'd add more discard outlets, yeah I get the vampire tribal theme which totally fits and stuff, but discard like Chainer, Nightmare Adept and Zombie Infestation are amazing. If you want a more vampire themed stuff, try Olivia's Dragoon or Insolent Neonate .

Finally, and this is with every emotion I can muster, HOW DARE YOU NOT RUN Bone Miser ! That card was built for this archetype and you ignored it. To quote Norman Osborn from the first spiderman movie: "I offered you kindness and you spat in my face." That's you, you're the face spitter. Please for the love of god put that card in.

+1! @Your post

I'd cut...

Zombie Infestation ... I like this card, but when are you going to draw the cards to fuel this? I'd say there are better discard outlets, eg. Skirge Familiar , Phantasmagorian , etc.

Bloodthirsty Blade ... fluffy, < Doom Blade , etc.

Boneyard Parley ... 7 mana for 2-3 creatures of your opponent's choice is so meh. < Balthor the Defiled , Twilight's Call , Command the Dreadhorde , etc.

Cut ... fluffy, weak removal, weak late game burn.

Anje's Ravager ... this card is awful. I'd rather play Sire Of Insanity or Awaken the Erstwhile if you're going to dump your hand... or Faithless Looting .

Bog Witch ... slow! Cut!

You might also go down to 34 lands and add a few more madness.

Good luck!

Thank you so much!

Yes. You're right about the Birthing Pod into Razaketh, the Foulblooded combo. I actually had it in the deck for some time, but, as weird as it sounds, I think I took it out because it was too easy to win with. But I should at least add it to the Maybeboard, just so that people know about it. Maybe I'll put it back into the main list sometime.

Now the Desecrated Tomb idea. It's brilliant! Absolutely brilliant. I never realized that it could replace the Zombie Infestation in the Greater Good combo. I just need an extra discard outlet on the field, and a creature to exile every time, but that shouldn't be hard. I don't mind you double posting, especially if it's for something as good as this!

Snivy__, Treasure Hunt does work for Conflagrate & Zombie Infestation . I'm using Treasure hunt to get cards in my hand, yes I'm not drawing them, but I still get cards in my hand which is what matters. Then I can discard thoso cards to use Conflagrate & Zombie Infestation very effectively. I'm still looking to replace Psychosis Crawler though, as making 1 big creature isn't really effective.

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.

You're right, there's little reason not to include Deathrite Shaman . Maybe I'll take out a Wood Elves for it.

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.

Hmm. My second Corpse Dance suggestion. I'll give it some thought, but as I said earlier, it hampers my ability to keep my Bridge from Below s on the top of my graveyard.

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?

Syr Konrad, the Grim / Desecrated Tomb ...delve triggers?

Plague of Vermin / Spontaneous Generation ...lots of tokens?

Deathrite Shaman / Hermit Druid ...utility staples?

Cadaverous Bloom ...for the combo turns?

I definitely recommend Skirge Familiar and second Corpse Dance . I play both with Demonlord Belzenlok and they're easily the best cards.

Also, if you like Living Death , try Twilight's Call ...or Rise of the Dark Realms .

So what's the plan here? Is this a Zombie Infestation deck? How do you plan to win the game?

Hogaak! +1!

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.

Feed the Pack , Korozda Guildmage ... sac Hogaak! Pricey, but... Ghoulcaller Gisa ???

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 :)

Saproling Symbiosis , Zombie Infestation ... maybe?

Stinkweed Imp ... more dredge!

Cryptolith Rite , Phyrexian Altar , and Ashnod's Altar are all amazing.

Hogaak was so good they had to ban him in Modern lol.
