Henwy_UltimateTimmy hello!

May I recommend Blowfly Infestation for your consideration? It works well with Hapatra and synergizes really well with Nest of Scarabs.

Also consider Karn's Bastion for a land slot since you can use it to Proliferate.

Karn's Bastion and Evolution Sage are solid inclusions for upping your spore counters.

You could improve your mana rock section, going with more 2 mana rocks. I rarely find Chromatic Lantern to be that useful in a two-color deck. Or, you could go in on land ramp with cards like Rampant Growth, a Wayfarer's Bauble, and even Summer Bloom can be useful. Since Slimefoot costs three to cast, I'd try to keep my ramp under 2 mana as much as possible, so I'd skip on cards like Cultivate and Kodama's Reach. Manalith and Darksteel Ingot are just not good.

I don't think Bontu's Monument is worth a slot here. You don't have many creatures to cast at all, and if it's not dead in your hand, it's going to be dead on your board. Lifecrafter's Bestiary will likewise not draw you many cards, and just having the scry isn't worth including it, in my opinion. Something like Vampiric Rites and Arguel's Blood Fast  Flip will help you draw cards more reliably in your current build. Harmonize would be a better draw spell for you, too.

Last thing I noticed is your lack of sacrifice outlets. Slimefoot does damage when saprolings die, and the most consistent way to kill saps is to do it yourself. If your budget allows, the altars are a good place to start: Ashnod's Altar, Phyrexian Altar, and Altar of Dementia. If your budget isn't that friendly, there are other options. Evolutionary Leap is a cheap sac outlet that lets you trade a sap for a creature in your library. Phyrexian Ghoul and Nantuko Husk are similar creatures that are free sac outlets, and Carrion Feeder is another decent one. Viscera Seer provides good value, too. Going all in on Slimefoot's abilities lets you get benefit out of enchanting it with cards like Keen Sense and Snake Umbra.

You've got a nice start. Hopefully this helps you focus it in a bit better.

You probably have enough counter stuff going on to justify Karn's Bastion! You never know when you'll have mana and nothing to spend it on.

Tormod's Crypt to hate on other graveyard decks.

Contagion Engine to proliferate more. Same for Karn's Bastion.

bushido_man96: According to the metrics they use, I am currently at $54.29, out of $55.00 -- Karn's Bastion is $2.00, so I'd have to find a way to slice $1.29 worth of cards out of the list... which is more than you'd think, honestly.

Looks good! Can you fit Karn's Bastion into the manabase?

I also play a experience counter atraxa similar to yours. It's so much fun because you have so much synergies in the deck! I can highly recommend:
