I like the changes! Looks like a solid deck. The last thing I would do to tune it is look at the bottom end of the curve. Gibbering Fiend and Pilfering Imp are cute, but now that you've removed your token producers, you'll have a tough time feeding Demonlord of Ashmouth , Eater of Hope , Xathrid Demon , Shadowborn Demon , and Infernal Offering . You've still got some cards that care about going wide, like Torrent of Souls , Hellrider , and Skirsdag High Priest .
The rate on Hordeling Outburst is good. For a reanimator deck, Skirk Ridge Exhumer , Cryptbreaker , Call the Bloodline , and Silversmith are also good. At the top end of the curve, Abhorrent Overlord could also warrant consideration. Also, in the land slot, if you feel your manabase is good, I like Kher Keep . Speaking of the manabase, Urborg Volcano and Tresserhorn Sinks are better in your deck than Evolving Wilds or Terramorphic Expanse . Rix Maadi, Dungeon Palace is a good utility land for reanimator. Also, Pyramid of the Pantheon and Molten Slagheap are real bad. Myriad Landscape is miles better.
My favorite low-curve option for pumping out bodies is Hanweir Garrison . Hanweir Battlements would be a sweet addition, as well, and I think it's better in this deck than Hammer of Purphoros . You don't really want to be taxing your lands with a deck full of 5+ drops, and I could say the same for Underworld Connections . It looks like a budget Phyrexian Arena , but it's really not. You're pretty good on card draw at this point, but if you really feel the need for another source, Night's Whisper is a clean, solid option.

To make the best use of lord of riots you'll need stuff that inflicts damage to your opponents.
Also consider adding these:Command Tower, Path of Ancestry
Best of luck.

An average deck will have around 22-26 lands. The amount depending on how your mana-curve balances out.
In your deck, you have 11 1-drops and 10 4-drop with absolutely no 2-drops inbetween.
You should try and balance out your mana curve more.
For starters you could switch out the 4x Forge Devil for 4x Gibbering Fiend.
They're only 1 more mana, burn the opponent for the same amount of damage, they don't burn you, have 2 Power instead of 1 and also have a Delirium ability. Not to mention it'll help balance out your mana curve more by having a few 2-drop spells.
Otherwise, you'll end up with too many 4-drop spells and you won't be able to cast any of them if you don't have enough mana.
Hope this comment kind of helps as a guideline on how to make your deck synergize better.

Why are you thinking about removing the Hellkite? Is it the high CMC?
Other lower CMC options that do similar things include the following: Gibbering Fiend, Keldon Marauders, Impact Tremors, Forgeborn Oreads, Keldon Champion, Foundry Champion, Blind Hunter, Bloodhunter Bat, Dakmor Ghoul, Grim Guardian, Pierce Strider, Purphoros, God of the Forge, and Outpost Siege. Personally, I think Gibbering Fiend and Keldon Marauders are the best. They're super low CMC, so you can play them much earlier in the game and start pinging the opponent for more damage sooner.
Invader Parasite is another option, if you don't mind not having any friends. Just make sure you don't accidentally exile all of your own lands, too.

At this Point where the deck is right now, I would cut Thermo-Alchemist, which I like, Nettle Drone Forgeborn Oreads and probably Curse of the Pierced Heart, as well as Basilica Guards ... I see the value in the last both cards in this deck, but I think there are better options to fill there spots.
... here are some creature suggestions:
maybe 1 Scorched Rusalka
Boros Charm !!!!
Hihi: Devil token could be fun as well like Devils' Playground, Dance with Devils, or Make Mischief... But actually all this spells are expensive... But having one or two copies of Devils' Playground in your deck can be mean with all the Impact Tremors and Panharmonicon.

Took about 10 minutes to put this together. When creating a deck with a tribe theme you want to try to stick to one tribe. IE Devils or demons.
I chose devils to give you an idea of having your deck work together.
Indulgent Tormentor (Demon but fit in)
Ob Nixilis, the Fallen (Demon but fit in)
Now even though all these cards do the same thing in a sense it doesnt mean itll make a great deck However if you team these cards with some decent burn cards Like Lightning Bolt , Lava Spike , Rift Bolt use your creatures to attack aggressively and die and so on and forget the X cost burn the payout isnt that great unless its a finisher like you need to deal 6 more and have the mana but if its countered youre all tapped out so keep that in mind.
So on a build using these guys all the lower cost creatures you would have 4 each and go up the cost and cut back to say 2 typically building i use the following rule
4 copies = I want this card in my opening hand or asap Every Game
3 Copies = I Want this card every game just not in my opening hand
2 Copies = I don't want this card in my opening hand but would like to see it every game
1 Copy = You could use this in a game but due with out it. (Typically I dont use one copy of a card unless i can tutor for it or it can save the game on some off chance situation)
No data for this card yet.
