When Liliana's Contract enters the battlefield, you draw four cards and you lose 4 life.
At the beginning of your upkeep, if you control four or more Demons with different names, you win the game.

More card draw and mana ramp would do this deck really well. Make the tough choice to get rid of some of the expensive creatures. You can favor creatures and cards that change the board state the turn they come in rather than later.
I would also try to decrease the average converted mana cost. This deck feels slow and bulky. Add in the appropriate mana ramp. Some artifacts that cost 2 or less that give you mana. Like the Talisman of Hierarchy , Wayfarer's Bauble or Talisman of Conviction .
If you rebuild it: 10 Ramp Spells 5+ Removal (This includes creatures that remove, i.e. Angel of Serenity . 10+ Draw Spells 30ish leftover for the cool stuff.

You can, if you like, create custom sort categories by adding a # in your edit list (eg. "1x City of Brass #Land") and then setting >Edit >Default category >Custom
Here are some houses:
Herald of Secret Streams ... where'd this go?
Dack's Duplicate ... +1/+1 clone
Spark Double ... +1/+1 clone
Mulldrifter ... if is too much then play this
Treasonous Ogre ... seems good
Reef Worm ... endless worms
Spawning Pit ... you can sacrifice the Spawn tokens to recoup 1/2 the value if they're wiped
Yahenni, Undying Partisan ... it never leaves the board so expect 10+/10+
Toothy, Imaginary Friend ... yes
Midnight Reaper ... yes
Burnished Hart ... do not underestimate this
Goblin Bombardment ... yes
You could also try playing some big beefs that are wipe oriented like...
To play aggressively, Marchesa needs evasive creatures with double strike ...or maybe even...
Flesh-Eater Imp ... I have one, you should try it out
Grafted Exoskeleton ... sacrifice might be nice
Viral Drake ... proliferating your +1/+1 counters would be pretty sweet
...Keep in mind Infect replaces damage so either make it a core theme or only play the ones that can get to 10 Infect quickly.
Demons would also be pretty sweet:
Defiler of Souls ... make them sacrifice
Demon of Wailing Agonies ... make them sacrifice
Havoc Demon ... wipe
Kothophed, Soul Hoarder ... draw to get off the throne?
Krav, the Unredeemed ... seems good
Lord of the Void ... betrayal
Malfegor ... wipe?
Rakdos, the Showstopper ... wipe
Reaper from the Abyss ... removal
Rune-Scarred Demon ... tutor
Silent-Blade Oni ... betrayal
Liliana's Contract ... hilarous

It's hard to say the exact numbers of which type of card but a rough estimate could be:
1 Commander -KTV
35 lands -
8 ramp pieces - 2 cost mana rocks that generate multi colour should form the majority of this. This is with the aim to get KTV out turn 3 or ensure that she is out turn 4 after a protection or haste piece is dropped turn 3 protection. I would recommend the three signets, the three Talismans, Fellwar Stone , Coldsteel Heart . This is key, Swing with kalia a turn earlier makes her harder to deal with.
6 Removal pieces - you are in some of the best colours for removal creatures with removal built in should be in the creatures slot
8 Protection pieces - as multimedia stated, in this case this should include any creatures that offer protection.
27 Creature bombs - this is where the deck can get very pricey generally the ridiculous cards that if dropped turn 4 can be silly are expensive $$ but budget versions can be used to devastating effect. It will be easy to find the expensive ones but the cheeper ones are Reya Dawnbringer Angel of Serenity Angel of Despair Tariel, Reckoner of Souls Archfiend of Depravity ...
9 high synergy cards - Haste enablers should be in here (unless they also offer protections),cards to enclude could be Strionic Resonator , Helm of the Host , Dragon Tempest Fervor Whip of Erebos Unburial Rites ...

take out Astral Cornucopia , Butcher Ghoul , Sign in Blood , Sightless Ghoul , Sengir Autocrat , Grim Haruspex , Animate Dead , and Orzhov Enforcer , you have a lot of card drawing already, and more bringing back things from the grave in masses rather than 1 by 1 put in Living Death , Key to the City , Agent of Erebos , Lord of the Void , Yahenni, Undying Partisan , Gonti, Lord of Luxury , Dictate of Erebos , and Carrion Feeder Dictate of Erebos is worth it, it will not only l=allow you to sac creatures and make theirs die but pull out counters, and other things, the real goal is to win, and with more demons on the field and Liliana's Contract you are more likely to get your win con, and if not you have back up options to get other ways to win

Demon of Dark Schemes is a boardwipe to a lot of decks.

Hi, in terms of some criticism, To me, your deck wants to be combo orientated but it doesn't have a way of protecting it and or yourself in the process since your creature base is very low power in general. I feel your deck could get run over by aggro decks with bigger, more efficient creatures or control decks that will lock you out the game if they take away Liliana's Contract or Arcane Adaptation in some way.
I think generating more card advantage would be the first step in since you're a combo deck. You need to find your combo pieces as quickly as possible so any draw/filtering spells would help immensely. Also playing some kind of permission spells (counters) would help protect you and what you're trying to do and disrupt what you're opponent is trying to do.
Since you have them Narset, Parter of Veils and Jace, Wielder of Mysteries would be auto includes in your 60 and multiples of them would help. Adding a Full playset of Liliana's Contract and Arcane Adaptation since they are the main ways you win. More copies you have, the better chance you'll have of drawing them.
But keep plugging at it, I like the concept of it. Cheers!

Sorry it took a few days for me to post, I've just been rather busy lately.
After having a quick look through your list and reading your description I can honestly say this is a great and rather original idea you've got right here and it certainly wasn't a way I would imagine Krav & Regna to be taken in! I have a couple of suggestions for you, just as another win condition for the deck maybe think about adding Liliana's Contract ? I know it focuses on the demon side and doesn't add anything to angels but it could help in certain situations, secondly another pairing that might work I think is Archangel of Thune & Archfiend of Despair , they've both got 'Arch' in their names and they both care about changing life totals, Archangel rewords you for gaining life whilst Archfiend punishes opponents when they lose life. Just a couple of suggestions I thought might work well in here, but overall you've already got a great and flavourful list going once again! :)

Here's some recommendations, budget conscious where I can be.
Lightning Greaves is a critical component of Kaalia of the Vast , I play multiple tutors for it, like Steelshaper's Gift and Stoneforge Mystic . Lightning Greaves is a must, if you can't connect a Haste Kaalia of the Vast swing your going to have a bad time.
Gisela, Blade of Goldnight is a staple, the double ended effect is really the key. She is a bit pricey, so I'll offer some other options tool.
I would try and hone in on a desired goal and synergize around that. Mine is Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and Restoration Angel , Land Destruction / Indestructible, Liliana's Contract / Shadowborn Apostle type decks, Worldgorger Dragon , Extra Combat Phases.
You have a little bit of Legendary sub-theme, some protecting yourself and Kaalia of the Vast sub-theme Magus of the Moat / Boros Charm , some recursion with Phyrexian Reclamation . You've got a very strong base of cards, once you pick a synergy, you definitely want to synergize around those core abilities.
You have lots of great cards, and I bet it's extremely fun to play! The Signet's are good, Talisman of Indulgence is cheap and better, I also feel like in most situations Fellwar Stone is better than the signet too. But because of the cost of the other mana sources, augmenting with Signets is a fantastic idea.
I don't like Subterranean Tremors , small ground walkers should matter too much to you, and all of your ramp comes from artifacts so destroying those is not a great idea. If your getting a Lizard, something is off the rails. Something like Vandalblast is better for Artifact control.
Chancellor of the Annex doesn't seem strong enough for the CMC7, or Stax enough. Odric, Lunarch Marshal seems a little out of place, the A/D/D are pretty tough on their own, if you have enough where engaging Odric, Lunarch Marshal to multiply their abilities you should be winning anyway without him.
I don't see anything out of place here, other than some of my comments.
Adarkar Valkyrie has many infinite combos (like infinite combat with Aurelia, the Warleader ) for example. I have a bunch under my Alternative Synergies Considered if your interested. She's powerful, can establish some combos, and fits the build in a budget format.
