Looks like a fun starter commander! Black White lifegain is a definite fun archtype to build, maybe work up towards something like Karlov of the Ghost Council or Oloro, Ageless Ascetic ! I know starting out budget is important as you don't want to invest in cards you might not like, so I've made the recommendations with that in mind!
Spirit Loop seems like it could have a home in your deck, as it's a consistent 2cmc spell that you can keep casting and getting back to trigger your commander.
Well of Lost Dreams Dawn of Hope Cosmos Elixir Are all sources of card draw that synergize with your lifegain gameplan! Your commander's colors are notoriously known for lacking card draw and ramp, so these might help keep you in the game!
Blind Obedience seems perfect for your deck!
Lurrus of the Dream-Den offers consistent recursion and allows you to cast lower cmc permanents. Kami of False Hope could also pair with this really well, as it's basically a fog effect that you can cast for cheap over and over!
In your current list, it appears a little removal light (which to be fair is meta dependent). since you're playing white, you have access to cards like Darksteel Mutation and Reprobation , which can be a headache for your opponents to deal with if you enchant their commander. Also Victimize is a great catchall removal spell.
For cuts, I'd recommend evaluating your cards in terms of whether they actively win the game or help you do what you want. In your current list Fortified Rampart I've found to be underwhelming and doesn't further your gameplan. I'd also recommend replacing the following: Star-Crowned Stag Skeleton Archer Reaper of Night Kor Scythemaster Inspiring Captain Hailstorm Valkyrie Gargoyle Sentinel Fiend Binder Angel of the Dawn Courier Griffin Silverflame Ritual Chaplain's Blessing Splendid Agony Djeru's Renunciation Sinister Possession .
That being said, it can sometimes be fun just trying your best with whatever cards are lying around! Hopefully the suggestions can give your deck a little pep!

Hi, I'm currently running 29 creatures. Most of them have a -1/-1 counter ETB in order to constantly bring more threats and snakes while controlling the other sides of the board. I can see you added Devoted druid and his best friend Quillspike, that's nice ! Karn's bastion and sadistic obsession seem goods but I haven't tried them yet.
Here's my list, made just for you <3. Hapatra 05.07.2020 [multi]
At first sight I'll make those changes :
I'm not fond of boardwipes in this deck since it takes some turns to make a decent amount of snakes. Personally, boardwipe is my main nemesis when playing Hapatra, I don't want to use it against myself. Did you manage to get real value from Gaze of Granite ? I'm running Maelstrom Pulse instead but I'm curious.

OptimalGreen: As much as I appreciate your faith in my galaxy brain deckbuilding, sometimes I just made bad decisions XD I'm still figuring out if Virulent Wound deserves the slot over Splendid Agony ...

I completely forgot about Earthcraft. Also what do you think of Abrupt Decay ? I'm guessing there's no room for it with Splendid Agony and Grim Affliction taking up removal slots. I put one in my Kadena deck thinking it wouldn't be that relevant but I've blown up a lot of Swords, Greaves, Sylvan Libraries, low cmc Commanders, and so on with it. I'm not sure if there's room in Hapatra though unless you take out like Unearth maybe.

Adds to Consider that aren't too pricey - Karn's Bastion - Contagion Clasp - Carnifex Demon - Grim Affliction - Skinrender - Incremental Blight - Banewhip Punisher - Splendid Agony - Ammit Eternal - Soulstinger - Lockjaw Snapper - Core Prowler - Murder - The Eldest Reborn - Spread the Sickness - Read the Bones - Whispersilk Cloak - Cauldron of Souls - Arguel's Blood Fast Flip
moderately spendy but relevant Liliana, Death Wielder
I'm not sure what the mana dorks are for exactly so maybe consider replacing them?

Hey buddy! Decent start so far. I never liked how expensive the cost for gorgons was though lol Below are a few ideas that came to mind that might help with Hapatra and your death theme.
Some Creatures to consider:

Thats the hardest part ;) perhaps something that just puts a single -1 counter on a creature:
I only played my own Hapatra deck 2 times. Both times it worked out well. Even found some great synergy with:
One last question: How has the rather low 32 lands worked out for you? I very rarely play less than 36 lands.
