I think your Mesmeric Orb idea is interesting. I've recently put in Hermit Druid after much deliberation, and now I know why it has been recommended so much. Sometimes, it just helps to have twenty cards in the graveyard. I should have an open slot in the deck available for some more of that.
I actually had Necrotic Ooze in the list for some time, and this was when I also had Razaketh, the Foulblooded. I think I ended up taking them both out of my list because I never actually got them in paper, but it's definitely solid. I agree on your sentiment with Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer. Any deck could use those cards. Also, I'm not sure I want to dedicate another two slots to cards that are only useful 5-percent of the time. In fact, because of that exact reason, I think I'll move Desecrated Tomb to my Maybeboard. It can have its uses, but 90-percent of time, it's a dead card.
Genesis doesn't seem like a bad card. I think I had it in my first iteration of this deck. It's just since then, Hogaak has slowly become reserved as my combo deck for my collection. I've ended up taking out cards that were a bit slower than others, and those included Genesis. But if you want to put it in to your list, please be my guest. Again, it's a good card, just a little slow.
Thank you for taking the time to comment and share your ideas! Believe it or not, it helps me build my Hogaak deck. As for me, it's always been my pleasure to share my ideas, and to spread the Hogaak energy.

I like this deck and building a version myself.
A couple of suggestions:
Mesmeric Orb Fills up your graveyards pretty fast; It has some more risk to it. For self milling. But it also combos very good with Syr Konrad, the Grim. To be evil, you could combine it Mana Web; the latter also has an impact on the tempo of others.
Necrotic Ooze Might help you out with some of the activated abilities you want to have on the table, but have been milled to the graveyard. Like the discard outlets or ability of Korozda Guildmage. You could be disgusting by including a combo like Triskelion and Phyrexian Devourer; In my opinion, this might be boring.
And is the The Gitrog Monster worth it to include?
I love the deck and your thought process. Thank you for sharing! It helps me build my Hogaak deck.

For myself and others, how to optimally pilot the deck
Philosophy behind the deck, ideally should be played with 2+ other players.
You are a hard to kill end game boss, blue is boring busted and broken and is also expensive. Try to go for cards that will keep your hand healthy since we are not running blue so think how much you can squeeze out of one card for maximum value.
while Triskelion will want cards like Defense of the Heart , Tooth and Nail with the added 2 colorless for entwine (if it's already in hand just pick a different creature and still summon the creatures you want in hand.)
Shifting Shadow will still work even if you are trying to destroy an indestructible creature during upkeep reveal the next creature while still keeping the previous one. Can be easily retrieved if no graveyard hate.
Sun Titan can even get a land into play
Chromatic Lantern can negate damage lands and lands with downside and can make useless lands useful.
Birthing Pod you can sacrifice zero cmc token creatures for a one drop ect.
