Hey zAzen7977, thanks for your comment !
The third copy of Liliana of the Veil and a one-of Hazoret the Fervent were run before the spoil of Lightning Skelemental, but i had to make room for him. He is the finisher i was looking for and even if i love Hazoret (i still play her in my Demigod of Revenge build), i think the deck doesn't really need her anymore. And yeah, i miss Faithless Looting so much... but it had to go sadly.

Here are my thoughts.
You need more lands. 20 lands aren't enough to cast your higher costing spells as smoothly as you need to. I am going to suggest adding some fetchlands or Fabled Passage to help you hit your land drops and be extra fodder for your Grim Lavamancers.
Speaking of the grim's, I do like the interaction between them and the Eternal Scourge. However, I don't think you need 4 of them. The reasoning behind this lies in the fact that you have to not only get the scourge and the lavamancer on the battlefield but the lavamancer has to stick around as well. That's gonna be a pretty hard thing to do with no ways to protect your creatures. My suggestion is dropping it down to 2-3 copies. A 3/3 for 3 isn't very impressive on the battlefield.
This is gonna tie into points 1 and 2 a bit, especially since you mentioned it. I don't think you want Demigod of Revenge in this deck. My reasoning is not only that you need 5 mana, which will not be reached easily with the current land count, but you will also need to draw extras and have them in the graveyard to have any of the awesomeness that can happen. Without any way to search up creatures it won't happen anywhere near often as you probably hope it will. I think they would be better spots for lands. If you are still wanting to have a large flyer in that slot, then I will nominate something like Glorybringer or Stormbreath Dragon.
Eidolon of the Great Revel? Do you have a lot of small creature decks in your meta? This looks like it would deal a lot of damage to you as well.
In the sideboard you have Pyretic Ritual. This could probably go to the main deck if you didn't want to include more lands. Having 3 seems like it would show up often enough to ramp out your planeswalkers, which can handle the higher mana needs from there. I will suggest swapping them for Desperate Ritual though. Same card essentially, but gives you the option of splicing Through the Breach on. Not only that, but you could up the count on your other sb cards if needed this way.
Through the Breach and Emrakul, the Aeons Torn. I think it's gonna be hard to pull off, but if you are wanting to have a suprise emrakul, then I will suggest Lukka, Coppercoat Outcast. His +loyalty works well with your solid creature count and his -2 could put an emrakul on the field for you if you stopped your creatures at 3 cmc. Granted there is a chance of hitting either demigod (which I would drop for this) or the hazoret. Even if you hit hazoret, you could activate lukka again and guarantee emrakul that way.
Anyhow long post ending, I hope you don't think I'm trying to put your deck down or anything like that. I'm just trying to offer ideas to help you enjoy your deck and be more successful.

MrNobleMonkey, thank you! Extirpate is an excellent replacement to Surgical Extraction. Nearly get the whole playset for the price of one extraction! As far as Demigod of Revenge I would say it's certainly the weakest card in the deck, but it usually ends up helping me fish out removal spells in order to give Phyrexian Obliterator a better chance. If I swapped out any card it'd be the demigod though. Works far better in my deck Revenge of the Underworld [Remastered] it fairs far better thanks to the engines that can put it in the graveyard. Entomb might be a good option, but I figure we want as many permanents as possible to rack up devotion. Sometimes it pays off if I've got Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, but by and large it gets 5 damage in and then gets killed off. I'll probably end up switching demigod out for either Murderous Rider or Ayara, First of Locthwain.

love the deck i have a devotion deck of my own and found that the card Extirpate performed better then Surgical Extraction also is much cheaper. Also im interested to hear how Demigod of Revenge performs with it at the top of the curve.

You say Liliana of the Veil isn’t useful, but imo it would provide some much needed speed to your deck. It would allow to to ruin your opponents hand while also pitching Demigod of Revenge for a later-game win. It would also allow to to very-happily run Bloodghast .
Other than that, my only concern is the sheer quantity of 4 and 5 drop cards you’re running. Most modern midrange decks wouldn’t be seen running more than 4 4-drops, and no 5 drops. Understandably you want to be casting Gary, but i think you should rethink your other 4-and-5 drop selections and try to limit them. At the moment i see it being difficult reliably getting a game to go long enough to play them

How do you feel about a transformative sideboard into (or from) a Madness deck? Thinking of Demigod of Revenge , Fiery Temper , and Avacyn's Judgment personally. Also, Darksteel Colossus may be a better non-budget option than Emmy to get around GY hate.

Maybe you have left them out intentionally, but you didn't get all of the Spirit Avatars. Here's the ones you're missing:
Admittedly not all of them are especially good (especially the Demigod is not exactly a gamebreaker in EDH), but I'm a big fan of the Spirit Avatars as a card cycle and an Avatar deck would be the perfect opportunity to run all of them in a single deck (at least I'd want to run them all if I were to make the deck). It's up to you.
