OptimalGreen - I put earthcraft in my deck and I havent looked back. Even if you arent running the throne, earthcraft deserves a spotAs its serious ramp. I also run Cryptolith Rite as my earthcraft tends to be targeted often and its always nice to have as a backup. I think all three of these cards (earthcraft/rite/throne) deserve spots as they are great together. If youre still looking for a card to cut I would go with Serrated Arrows its too slow IMO.

Made a few adjustments.
Grim Haruspex for Lifecrafter's Bestiary. Decided the scry effect is much more powerful. Plus, seeing how I am somewhat heavy creature based, adding a green mana for a draw is an added bonus. At the same time, I dont want to be drawing into lands. Also, if I'm going to combo off (ex: mikeaus, the unhallowed and Devoted Druid, I dont want to have the ability where I have to draw, then I'll practically mill myself out. Same CMC.
Journey to Eternity Flip for Contamination. Same CMC. Nothing really changes, except for my the fact I have more control over my opponents. Forcing their lands to only produce black mana. I want to entice my opponents to use their destroy permanent spells on this rather than my combos. I'd rather have fun with it and it doesn't hurt me as much considering majority of my deck is practically black.
Serrated Arrows for Trigon of Corruption. Same CMC. I felt the need to put charge counters back on trigon would allow me to use it more often than serrated arrows. The ability to put on and take off charge counters as opposed to just take off seems very flexible.
Comment below. Thanks.

Serrated Arrows seems like pretty good creature control, i will have to see if i can find a spot for that, or at least test play it--good call!
AS for Gemstone Array and Everflowing Chalice i am not too sure. Gemstone Array is a great mana stink if i am not doing anything else on a turn, and both can get me to my larger Planeswalkers quicker. however, neither of them helps me cast my commander before turn 4 or even on turn 4. The deck really starts going with her out, and that is why i have all the signets and Pentad Prism(and for mana fixing, which sometimes can be a problem).
thanks for the suggestions, i really do appreciate them!

@Wiggyman, thanks for the suggestion. I've thought about Vhati but honestly, he seems like a trap card. He has to live a turn before he has an effect and then I have to be able to place a counter. Seems like too many hoops to jump through just to kill a single creature.
I've put some thought and analysis into my list and these are the changes I'm thinking of making:
-Channeler Initiate, + Edge of Autumn: Channeler is a nice way to get a token but it's nowhere close to Devoted Druid and it's slow. Edge of Autumn is more reliable early ramp and a good discard effect for Archfiend of Ifnir.
-Midnight Banshee, +Grave Titan: I felt like the Banshee was a bit overpriced for it's effect given the fact that Harbinger of Night exists. The Gravy Train is a great token producer and is threatening enough all on it's own.
-2 basics, +2 cycling lands: more discard effects for Archfiend.
That's what I'm thinking so far. I'll update my list once the cardboard is actually in the sleeves. I'm hoping that these changes make the deck a little more flexible and interactive.

It may sound crazy, but Serrated Arrows actually does lots of work in -1/-1 counter decks! You already have the Proliferate engines to keep it going too!
Josh of the Command Zone on YouTube built a Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons deck and I was amazed at how much work they did, so I'd highly recommend it!

So many comments....just here to say im stealing Serrated Arrows for my Hapatra deck. Love it, and the deck, brotha.

I would pump up your negative counters and add in some proliferate cards.
Another -1/-1 counter card that could work is Serrated Arrows.
Other than that, I like the direction this deck is going, just needs some slight tuning to make sure you get maximum value from Scorpion Gods ability.
