Zombies! I dig it!

Do you play against a meta where swampwalk is usually effective? If not, there are some potential replacements that synergize more with Konrad wanting bodies coming and going from the grave.

If you want more discard to get creature cards in graveyards, Black Cat, Miasmic Mummy, Sibsig Icebreakers and Cackling Fiend work nicely. Returned Centaur and Returned Reveler do something similar with milling.

Other Gravedigger effects like Grave Scrabbler work well with Konrad, as does Gurmag Angler and exiling from your own graveyard. Zombie Scavengers lets you exile every creature in your library at instant speed to zap the table with Konrad if you need to. Herald of the Dreadhorde and Lazotep Reaverget you lots of extra bodies to die.

Wight of Precinct Six can become a big threat once you start to fill everyone's yard (perhaps more threatening than Null Champion).

Lurching Rotbeast is card draw on top of a Konrad trigger, as is Spark Reaper.

A little light on ramp, but your Twisted Abomination combos nicely with your Witch's Cottage to do double-duty.

EDIT: I meant to suggest removing Herald of the Dreadhorde, not Lazotep Reaver. The Reaver is actually not bad because of its low CMC, and your mana curve is going to be kind of high no matter what you do.

Here are some interesting Amass cards. Gleaming Overseer , Vizier of the Scorpion , Dreadhorde Invasion , Bleeding Edge , Lazotep Plating , Herald of the Dreadhorde , Grim Initiate , Enter the God-Eternals , and Invade the City . Don't forget that cards that say proliferate could boost the counters on your army and Planeswalkers so they may be fine to throw in too. The one coming to my mind is Flux Channeler .
