Ammit Eternal Discussion

You have a point about not dying early. :) Though adding more 5 & 6 cmc demons isn't the way to go I don't think. Only problems I see are your curve is top heavy. More disruption/removal would help. Ring of Three Wishes and Whip of Erebos are a little too cute to be running in my opinion. Victim of Night, Fatal Push, Inquisition of Kozilek, Blackmail, or Funeral Charm are all viable early game plays.
If you really wanna go full on Liliana's Contract, I would narrow it down to 5-6 demons, maybe even adding something like Skirsdag High Priest to pump out Demon Tokens (They count towards the contract) to have an early board presence.
My creature base would be something like this:
3 Skirsdag High Priest
3 Wall of Souls or Gifted Aetherborn whichever suits your playstyle
4 Ammit Eternal
4 Desecration Demon
3 Ob Nixilis, the Fallen
4 Crypt Ghast
1 Indulgent Tormentor
From there you should have plenty of room to fit all of your ramp, removal/disruption and contracts.

Ammit Eternal allows you to maintain -1/-1 counters and gets bigger as you remove them and is fast play.
Channeler Initiate Hits big and also ramps, if you need it.
Nest of Scarabs Let's you go toe-to-toe against tokens. So a good sideboard card.
Hope these ideas help! :D

Vulturous Zombie is a super fun card, but I'm not sure what you'd like to move around for it. Probably a sideboard card, in the event you need to get over waves of tokens / are up against a lot of flying.
Kalonian Hydra is an absolute must in this deck.
Avatar of the Resolute is a perfect mid-to-late game card. Yes, while he costs merely , he's best played later on when your board is a bit bigger.
Ridgescale Tusker is a super fun card. I run it in my Selesnya Counters deck.
Inspiring Call is perfect for full-swings and card advantage. Since it's an Instant, you can cast it during your opponent's turn and draw a ton of cards and not be forced into discard immediately as you only discard down to 7 during your own end step.
Predator Ooze is just outright awesome.
Dragonscale Boon is a nice card, but I think it is redundant at this point.
Ancestral Vengeance is actually kind of a nice black card for +1/+1 counters, though it may be inappropriate in this deck. It's really good to kill Indestructible creatures. You hit them for lethal, then 2nd main phase the AV onto them and they die to state-based-actions. But I'm not entirely sure how viable it is in a deck like this.
You'll want to bolster (hehe) your resources a bit more. Typically, running 1x of everything is a bad idea, but since it's casual I'm assuming this was built with cards laying around. It's a nice foundation to work with, so I hope I was able to make some good suggestions for you! :D

Keeping the demon subtheme I would suggest: Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Archfiend of Despair, Demon of Catastrophes, Demon of Dark Schemes, Demon of Wailing Agonies, Harvester of Souls, Nefarox, Overlord of Grixis, Reiver Demon
I would remove: Buried Alive (don't see strong graveyard recursion), Temporal Extortion/Dash Hopes (bc if its that important to your opponents they will pay the life), Grinning Demon/Minion of Leshrac (no upside), Gloom/Infernal Reckoning(unless this is a meta choice but its too situational), Sanguine Bond (do you gain that much life to be relevant?), Death's Approach (for hard removal) and Without Weakness

OO you're totally right about that planeswalker rule (I just got back into Standard and missed that update). Ammit Eternal is actually pretty sweet in my opinion. and Isareth is somehow even better than it looks. The way it interacts with Demon of Catastrophes (good sideboard option for you if you need aerial support btw) and Ravenous Chupacabra gets me rough.
Sword-Point Diplomacy is a sweet card, especially to side-in when you're playing opponents that are bad at making decisions.
Vanquisher's Banner has it's place here against certain control match ups.
Tetzimoc, Primal Death is a reliable win condition I enjoy.
lol Monoblack is kind of my thing, sorry to unload. It's looking better though, maybe just a few more 2-drop spells to balance things out and you should be good to go. Reassembling Skeleton is looking real nice with deathtouch, btw.

Second off, the curve is a bit wonky. Liliana, the Necromancer needs to go, as it is not only not particularly synergetic with the tribal theme, but also takes up an already crowded 5-mana cost spell slot, as well as conflicting with the 2 other Liliana cards.
Arisen Gorgon is essentially a vanilla 3/3 for 3 mana, and I can't help but feel is just not worth running. Plague Belcher, Dread Shade, Isareth the Awakener, or even Ammit Eternal are more worth running over the Gorgon in my opinion.
Dread Wanderer obviously the best choice as a 1-drop creature, and you can pick them up for roughly a dollar each right now, so I don't see why Diregraf Ghoul and Festering Mummy and taking that spot.
Anyways, just taking about mainboard here, I would recommend:
There, replaced some cards to add more consistency and cohesion, and the cards I suggest to go in are valued less all together than the cards I suggested to drop from the Mainboard.

Thats the hardest part ;) perhaps something that just puts a single -1 counter on a creature:
I only played my own Hapatra deck 2 times. Both times it worked out well. Even found some great synergy with:
One last question: How has the rather low 32 lands worked out for you? I very rarely play less than 36 lands.

First, you will need a lot of ramp to get this deck going with all your demon and being able to maybe play multiple demons a turn making this deck able to sweep in with a win. You will also need more creatures that are to be sacrificed to Razaketh, the Foulblooded. Razaketh and Liliana's Contract will have you lose life so you will need some way to regain any lost life. Some cheap demons I've found are Ammit Eternal, Baleful Ammit, Demonic Taskmaster, Grinning Demon, Herald of Torment, Master of the Feast, Mindwrack Demon, Razorjaw Oni, Scourge of Numai, Soulcage Fiend, and Soulstinger.
