I'm sorry to say that your combo might not work. Illness in the Ranks seems to provide an anthem effect that doesn't actually put counters on creatures. It only reduces their power and toughness, which just hurts your own efforts. I think that you might want to take out some other cards as well so you can put some better ones in. Here are my suggestions:
Dusk Urchins and Castle Locthwain draws you more cards, and you can cast Unearth on it to bring it back as well as a bunch of other things. Devoted Druid is good for getting you more mana, and Utopia Sprawl is more efficient than Weirding Wood. Ammit Eternal is pretty good as well, as it gets you tons of value from your Hapatra, Vizier of Poisons and Nest of Scarabs. I recommend putting Scarscale Ritual into your sideboard since you don't have one right now. I get the feeling that you're trying to go for a budget build, but you might want to try to put in 4 copies of Overgrown Tomb in place of 2 Swamps and 2 Forests. If you don't want to spend the money on those, I suggest that you put in 4 Zagoth Triomes instead. You might also want to take a look at on Scryfall to check out other possibilities.

Nice deck ! ;)
Did you try adding some cards giving +1/+1 counters ? 'cause there's a rule where a +1/+1 counter negates a -1/-1 counter; that might be usefull for some cards you play like Ammit Eternal or Devoted Druid

IzmAYAYA: Ammit Eternal, Soul Snuffers, Yawgmoth, Thran Physician, Black Sun's Zenith, and Grim Affliction are my biggest token producers. I tend to tutor for them, or draw aggressively until I find them.

Thanks for the suggestion,Balaam__. I hadn't given it a look until you suggested it, and I think that it definitely has a place in the deck, but I don't know what I should replace. Best I can think is to cut Ammit Eternal and then go down to 2 copies of Festering Mummy, but I'm not sure. Any ideas?

Zakuzelo... Early game is all about getting token engine built and stalling the opponent. When it is time, generally I attack with Ammit Eternal and snake tokens (leaving a few defenders), both of which typically get through due to Afflict and Deathtouch... all while having tokens generating and getting Poison-Tip Archer into play. Once this board state is achieved, I play either Black Sun's Zenith or Soul Snuffers to place counters, kill 1/1s and generate more tokens, then deal direct damage (via Poison-Tip Archer) to player. At this point, I can usually swing board the following turn and win. I may move Blowfly Infestation back onto mainboard, as the combo for infinite tokens really makes this a more cheeky, but threatening build. As has always been the case, this build is either full-on, on-curve assault, or is frustratingly slow and non-effective. There doesn't seem to be much in-between. Normally it is fairly effective, and I am guessing I win about 50% of the time overall, give or take.

Based on your post I see that you have reached the dreaded "I need to cut the last few cards" part of deck building.
One thing I always do at this point is to create custom categories for the various aspects of my deck. For example, you could make "add -1/-1 counter", "profit from -1/-1 counter", "ramp", "card draw", etc, categories. This always help me organize the focus of the deck, locate cards that are off theme or oddly specific, as well as find areas where I am imbalanced (i.e. too much removal and not enough ramp).
A couple examples: Veil of Summer is a really good card, but it is pretty niche. If your meta isn't heavy blue-black or it isn't very competitive, then Veil may not be needed.
Another example is Ivy Lane Denizen . It may seem like making your 1/1 snakes into 2/2's is great, but is it really needed? Your snakes already have deathtouch so they automatically trade with anything in combat. The added 1 power on each snake is fine, but not game ending. Triumph of the Hordes , Craterhoof Behemoth , Finale of Devastation , and Beastmaster Ascension are all much better finishers and make Ivy Lane Denizen unnecessary in my eyes. If you are set on a running Ivy Lane Denizen then I would suggest trying out Path of Discovery instead. It still can put a +1/+1 counter on your snakes, but it also provides card advantage.
So in my opinion, I would consider cutting any of: Ivy Lane Denizen , Veil of Summer (depending on your meta), Eldrazi Monument , Ammit Eternal , and Bane of Progress (this is a very good card, but your deck relies too much on it's enchantments and artifacts). I would also consider cutting Blightsteel Colossus , but that is more of a personal opinion for me.
If you do find yourself wanting to consider other cards any of the following are pretty strong in Hapatra decks: Contagion Engine , Contagion Clasp , Blowfly Infestation , Carnifex Demon , Skinrender , and Crumbling Ashes .
I hope this helps and happy deck building!

Thanks bushido_man96 good shout, I need to re-brew it a bit, it’s a lot more sacrifices than the other list because hapatra doesn’t have card draw on her so it’s not as easily accessible.
I’m also considering Ammit Eternal and co from Amonkhet.
What do you think could be cut?
