I've been trying to brew something similar. Here's mind: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/04-07-17-mardu-creativity/

And Mirran Crusader seems like a real solid card

If affinity is a problem, and this can help with elves and merfolk too, why not run Zealous Persecution in the board for those matchups? I feel one would be better in the main than the third Thoughtseize, however, I do understand why you run it.
Yahenni's Expertise may also actually be worth looking at to turn the corner. I've played it several times against elves and affinity and each time it has worked perfectly. Probably not better than Dusk / Dawn, but definitely worth the thought. I don't know how much a board wipe is desired in a Bitterblossom deck anyway.

I like this approach to tokens, have you considered a 1-2 of Bitterblossom main deck? It doesn't trigger prowess or pyromancer tokens, but it's the most consistent token generator out there if you want to spam the board with bodies

These kinds of decks are good metagame answers to midrange beatdown decks. You'd be out of luck if the opponent plays something with hexproof, or protection from colored spells or has ways to protect their critters. I don't know what to do about that, except maybe Fleshbag Marauder, since if it's your only creature you can fling it in response to its ability.
Also, if the opponent is playing a creatureless combo, you're kind of out of luck. I really feel like you'd need something to do if the enemy doesn't have any creatures you can control. You need creatures that don't mind being flung at the enemy. Why does the horribly unplayable Kathari Bomber come to mind? We need better suggestions.
It seems like you'd need some ramp to make your spells really worthwhile: you'd need 5 mana to cast a Mark of Mutiny and Altar's Reap which is more or less just a Slave of Bolas or a cheap entwined Grab the Reins. Sure, you have Expertise and the cheap one, but you're still looking at turn 3 minimum.
Now...Blood Funnel might be the weirdest thought I've had all day. Pair it with Bloodghast, Prized Amalgam and others, so all your spells get to be cheap, but, more importantly It gives you a way to sacrifice their critters. Imagine you cast a Dark Petition to get a Languish or other toolbox spell, and you can cast it immediately (provided you have the bodies to sac for it). Alternatively, you run permanents that make tokens like Bitterblossom, but I'm just brainstorming.
This would give you things to do while you take control of their critters. There are tons of possibilities with Blood Funnel, since it makes every spell is also a potential sacrifice outlet. And, you'd want the revolving door graveyard for your sacrifice stuff. I don't know how many of these ideas are any good.
If nothing else Miren, the Moaning Well as a one-of land.

Yeah I like the Duress and Pithing Needle for sideboarding, along with probably some Inquisition of Kozilek. I'm with you that Stain the Mind would be the better option, it'll help take essential combo pieces out of the game. Bitterblossom would be great in this deck, but my first born son wouldn't appreciate being sacrificed to afford such fancy cards.Claim//Fame is a solid card, I just wish it could hit Geralf's Messenger. Butcher Ghoul is good for coming back, but I want high value 1 drops mostly for the speed of getting the demon out quickly. Cadaver Imp and Relentless Dead are good for bringing things back, but there isn't too high of a priority to bring things back when I could just draw new things with Sign in Blood

Yeah, forgot it had to be black creature for the sacrifice cost. oh well!
Yeah, I'm actually quite shocked tha the Lightning Greaves and Swiftfoot Boots aren't more played. Be warned however, they can spot remove your demon in response to you equipping the boots, but after that you're safe.
As for the sideboard, I'd suggest Duress to annoy control and prevent spot removal. Go for the Throat is also an option if there's not a lot of affinity in your meta. Pithing Needle is also a classic, and black as access to very good card to combat combo decks: Memoricide or maybe Stain the Mind in your case since you can convoke most of it and you creature can be sacrificed even if tapped.
Also, I don't know how deep your budget is, but if you have a few shekels to spare, or that your playgroup/card store allows proxies, Bitterblossom would be Grade-A in you deck.
