ok, take 2...hopefully I remember to post this comment before closing the window.
Tatterkite will never die with Mike out, so he's an infinite sac outlet. Retribution of the Ancients can remove counters to duplicate this effect with all your creatures as long as you have black mana. Similar effect with Carnifex Demon
Finally maybe get another piece of protection for Mike like Lightning Greaves in there.

Portwood: I am pretty set on not going solely -1/-1 counters if it means putting them on just my creatures. Effects like Carnifex Demon and similar are ok because they affect everybody, but I want to avoid most of the cards that only affect my guys. Also, any black token deck that doesn't take advantage of black's sac effects is definitely not as effective as it could be.

Odysseus_97 my own hapatra deck is more casual than this one but I've used most the cards you are asking about.
Corrosive Mentor has been generally very nice for me. Either my creatures get through or i get a few extra snakes, been especially nice for forcing hapatra through. A few times he has been the only black creature so he sucks then but most my creatures are black and gives those silly bugs from Nest of Scarabs more bite. Also great for when people want to attack you until they figure out you benefit more from it.
Archfiend of Ifnir would be great in a discard deck or perhaps The Scorpion God has a good use for him. Sadly to force some usefulness from him you need around 10 discard effects or more for consistency, it just ends up being a subtheme that takes a lot of space and doesn't do enough. better off with Black Sun's Zenith , Carnifex Demon, Contagion Engine, Harbinger of Night, and Midnight Banshee. That seems to be plenty of mass negative counters.
Forgotten Ancient I'm not playing anymore but is hilariously overpowered. He can keep your stuff alive or just pump hapatra and kill someone with commander damage. The multiple uses for the positive counters is really worth it. I'm just testing a more reanimate oriented idea right now.
Dusk Urchins is surprising. Since hapatra drops turn 2 you swing turn 3 and you can place a negative counter here because you want the draw in a few more turns and then turn 4 swing with him for another snake. It is hard to explain how nice he has been but just think about how nice it is to draw 2 or 3 for 3 mana then add in that he gets snakes and might do some damage.
Seshiro the Anointed I removed him because when I want my snakes to get pumped up is also when I want to win. He is useful to have out as long as possible so that you can have deadly 3/3s and consistent draw but that stops a combo I use. If you use the Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons + Blowfly Infestation combo then you need to watch how many pumps you include since they turn it off. If you are not using that then include it as long as the mana doesn't slow you down too much.

Hi, I'd suggest the following: Decimator of the Provinces is an excellent budget game ender for when you have all those snakes.
Maybe something like Blade of the Bloodchief to keep your commander alive?
Glistening Oil might not be a perfect fit here, but for the cost it is pretty awesome and hard to get rid of.
That's all I have atm, hope it helps!

if you're looking for creatures that won't ever die while Mikaeus is out, here is a list.
Crystalline Crawler (This card can also give you infinite mana)
Now you just need sac outlets.

Important to note that Devoted Druid + Quillspike is an infinite combo.

Might steal a card or two from this list fyi.
