mfogle you'll definitely like my most recent revisions.
I've replace Archdemon of Unx and Eater of Hope and Carnifex Demon for Kuro, Pitlord. Acrhdemon is to slow, eater needs to many resources to be efficient and carnifex has the problem of hitting my commander and has limited kill potential and use.
Lastly I think I'll swap Reprocess for Liliana's Contract when I am able to, reprocess can net you more cards but you have to have the available creatures to sac, versus contract will net you four cards no matter what, plus the additional win con makes it an excellent card for this build.
Let me know what kind of build you go with when its finished, I'd recommend all of the above mentioned.

Carnifex Demon is a bit of a nonbo. It kills all of the snakes you want to make

A few thoughts to go over!
Ammit Eternal will net you snakes very quickly as your opponents cast spells. If anybody is left open, (Or you use your Whispersilk Cloak/Rogues Passage) you can extend that engine's lifespan.
Skinrender only triggers Hapatra once, but is solid removal.
Flesh-Eater Imp is a solid flying infecter that explodes a win if you have snakes to feed. Phyrexian Crusader, Phyrexian Hydra, Phyrexian Vatmother are cheap solid infect sources too. Grafted Exoskeleton and Glistening Oil turn any of your creatures into surprise infect threats. I know its not budget, but Inkmoth Nexus is going to do a LOT of work for you.
Your land base isn't bad, but could be better in my opinion by focusing harder on Basics. In addition to making you more resilient to non basic hate/punish, two color doesn't get color starved easily. Especially if you to focus on basic ramp like Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, and other similar that search Any Basic Land. Drop the majority of your lands that enter tapped with little to no other benefit. Gaining 1 life or a 0/1 plant aren't going to win you the day, and will often slow your plan painfully. Nykthos is questionable. Being so evenly split in mana costs plus so much of the deck's presence being token based, I wonder how often it will actually run positive on devotion.

Most recent win involved putting Pemmin's Aura on Lazav, Dimir Mastermind and having Phenax in play. One opponent had Induced Amnesia on them, so I focused on milling the other out with Lazav, who quickly turned into a Carnifex Demon and they were both milled out swiftly after that.

If possible, I'd like to keep the average CMC of this deck on the low side. Carnifex Demon and Grim Poppet both fit with the deck's strategy, but each is rather expensive to cast and I have cheaper alternatives.
I love your idea of adding Retribution. It will ensure that my creatures without persist will also be able to recur multiple times if Mikaeus is on the field. I will replace Murder with it. Many thanks for your input!

Mikaeus is cool. I run him in my 60-card demon deck, mainly because of his synergy with sacrifice effects. One thing I can recommend is Carnifex Demon, as it comes into play with -1/-1 counters which offset the +1/+1 counter from Undying, making it practically immortal. Same goes for Grim Poppet, although that may be a bit on the costly side for what it does. Lastly, you could include Retribution of the Ancients in order to remove any +1/+1 counters from your creatures on instant speed in order to guarantee their safe return from Mikaeus' undying.

For Panharmonicon i will abuse the following cards:Carnifex Demon + Champion of Lambholt + Deepglow Skate + Eternal Witness + Fathom Mage + Ghave, Guru of Spores + Ichor Rats + Master Biomancer + Mikaeus, the Lunarch + Solemn Simulacrum + Woodfall Primus + Astral Cornucopia + Contagion Engine + Everflowing Chalice
You have to know that the cards entering the battlefield also triggers his own etb effect twice. In that case cards like Solemn or Astral Cornucopia will get even more value !
I had Corrupted Conscience also in the deck before but had to cut it to make space for other cmc5-drops that fit more into that deck imo. But if you have any reasonable suggestion which card i should cut for Corrupted Conscience I would really appreciate it. After some time you get lost in your own deck though :/
