I don't mean to be a downer here, but this deck is way too top-heavy for Modern. You're almost never going to get to 7 mana without the game being over already unless it's against a control deck, in which they can just stop your expensive cards with a Remand or Mana Leak. Your enchantments are really your only -1/-1 counter payoff cards, and Nest of Scarabs is probably too slow. Crumbling Ashes and Fume Spitter are neat, but they shouldn't be your only removal. Consider putting a few Fatal Push in the deck, and maybe a Terminate or two. Crumbling Ashes is a good way to answer large threats like Tasigur, the Golden Fang and Wurmcoil Engine but is too slow and clunky if you need to answer a turn 1 Noble Hierarch or Elvish Mystic.

Thank you very much for your ideas and I must say, that I was also thinking about adding some of your suggestions like Crumbling Ashes or Kulrath Knight.

Hey! Fellow EDH player also with a Hapatra deck. If you're interested, my budget version is here Hapatra Budget Casual. A few small notes I would say about your deck: 1. Take out lands. You have a low average cmc with a low cmc Commander. I would recommend taking out 2 or 3.2. I would highly recommend going away from infect. Either devote your deck to Infect, or take it out. Having a few infect creatures in a deck makes your deck an easy to hate target if you can not reliably get them out. The one I would keep in would be Core Prowler if going away from Infect theme because it does have the added bonus of Proliferate. But Blight Mamba might be a nice Infect choice if wanting to go sub snake tribal.2.5 Triumph of the Hordes as a win con.3. No Blowfly Infestation, Crumbling Ashes, or Cryptolith Rite? These could easy be switched with Dictate of Erebos (good card, but sacrifice does not seem to be a theme of the deck), Fecundity helps other players draw cards as well, and Crumbling Ashes is just a better Liliana, Death Wielder.

Good luck with the deck. Feel free to look at and comment on mine. I have also have a slightly more competitive version of the deck that I shared the link to. Also have another one with Hapatra that tries to revolve around Infect. Hope this feedback comes across more as helpful than attacking.

Take a look at Fume Spitter, It's more flexible than Festering Mummy.

A few other cards worth mentioning:

Black Sun's Zenith

Crumbling Ashes

Everlasting Torment

Kulrath Knight

Liliana, Death Wielder might also work. Very High CMC...

Like the idea here has some good synergy, +1! Ever thought abiut making room for Crumbling Ashes?

Nice deck mate! Perhaps Grim Affliction instead of Crumbling Ashes? It's higher on the curve yes, but profits your Necroskitter, Midnight Banshee and Scavenging Ooze!

+1 from me
