Hi thanks for commenting! The mana base will need lots of work; still unsure if it's color-heavy towards black or red or blue but more shocks are a definite must for sure so the checks can come in untapped.
And I haven't run much control so I wasn't sure if the additional land draw would be helpful, most likely not as it does look like I have some good amount of draw.
I can take one of of both Sinister Sabotage and Mission Briefing . Reckless Rage is something I found could be useful. 1 mana instant speed works just like a Lava Coil but with no downside as I run few creatures and was thinking about going creaturesless. I wasn't sure if Rage would be better than Lava Coil because of this. I can see the usefulness of removing the Moment of Craving as well but I've heard some good things about the card and see it run fairly often so I will wait for a second opinion on that one.
Yawgmoth's Vile Offering has become a pet card, I will move it to the maybe board. Rekindling Phoenix is considered because of its resistance to removal and allows me to run anything that may get it killed like a boardwipe. I also have one. Although Lava Coil is used often due to Phoenix. I'll take him out. I'll also just move Lava Coil over to the side.

Your land base needs more dual lands or some basic mountains, islands, and swamps to be viable. Dragonskull Summit , Drowned Catacomb , and Sulfur Falls are not nearly effective enough with only 6 lands which can allow them to enter untapped in a deck with 26 lands. I would cut one of each of those and the Memorial to Genius since you are already running plenty of draw and two Arch of Orazca and add two additional lands either a basic island and a basic mountain or two more shock lands of some combination to allow your lands to more consistently hit the play-mat untapped.
Additionally I would recommend starting with removing one Sinister Sabotage , one Mission Briefing , all four Reckless Rage , and all three Moment of Craving . Remove Yawgmoth's Vile Offering as it will be way too inconsistent with such little play ability and such high card cost. I also don't see the value of Rekindling Phoenix in this particular deck, especially when you are already running such a deep mana curve for sorcery, creature, and planeswalker.
Perhaps the Lava Coil could be moved to your sideboard for when removal is required.

i think there are too many things going on with your creature base. id drop wily goblin, status, and plaguecrafter to add more copies of other important cards. Judith, the Scourge Diva , Rekindling Phoenix , Goblin Gathering , and Spawn of Mayhem would be the cards i would try to include depending on the strategy you would want to go in.

Glad I was a bit helpful. One thing that I seem to have missed is that you have 22 lands. Considering you've got 4, 5, and 6 cost spells that you're gonna want to play on curve, I suggest you have 24 or 25 lands rather than 22. One last card I'd suggest you take a look at is Rekindling Phoenix . I know its not a demon but its a really good card and unless you are completely dedicated to demons its worth a look I think. Good luck with the deck. If your looking for decks to use as a reference there is a Rakdos Control deck that's floating around right now that might give you some tips if you plan to build it kinda as I suggested. It might give you some ideas.

I recommend Rekindling Phoenix over arclight because of the bigger stability of the Rekindling.

Seraph of the Scales is ok. I would rather be casting Aurelia, Exemplar of Justice or Rekindling Phoenix most if the time. Besides being an angel, it doesn't do anything for the other ones and looses a bit of synergy.
