Again, it's too easy to stop it from winning.

Muzzio, Visionary Architect can dig fairly deep if Reaper King is out.
Stinging Study is a great big draw spell, but it does cost a ton of life, with the upside of being an instant. I also like Rush of Knowledge , One with the Machine , and even Ugin's Insight . Study and One are probably the best options for a huge draw spell, with One having the big drawback of requiring Reaper King to be on the field.
I would also think about Liliana's Contract , as a back up win con that mostly draws a bunch of cards for you. Phyrexian Scriptures is pretty reasonable if you are running lots of artifacts, though it is a slower wipe. It is much better than a single creature edict though.

I run Strands of Night in a bunch of decks. It's quite silly, I agree.
In my Kagemaro, First to Suffer deck I run the planeswalker version of Karn, the Great Creator as it can survive my commander's board wipes. It has the added benefit of shutting down all my opponents' mana rocks.
If you're really set on running Demon tribal you could lean all the way into it an run Liliana's Contract , but I think you'll need a whole reanimation suite to get that working.

This looks like lots of fun! I've always had an interest in Kaalia of the Vast , but mostly because I've always wanted an angels deck, and Kaalia just doesn't feel like the right flavor for angels. This seems far more thematically appropriate! Maybe someday we'll get a real good angel commander from WoTC, but I won't hold my breath. I love the alternate win con in Liliana's Contract ! You can certainly kill everyone without it, but its a fun and flavorful option, and even if you don't win with it it it's never a dead card as drawing four cards in Mardu is always a good thing.

Thank you to everyone for the advice,
FormOverFunction I'd actually considered it early on, and with white it would have a lot of good anthem options, but there are just too many fun demons to play.
Mcat1999 A lot of fun options from the decklist, most of which I have in my pile of 'what I want to play but had to cut for my decksize'. Pitiless Plunderer did make it in however. I'm sticking with ramp vs cost reduction for the moment, even if I've on the extremely heavy side for demon count. In terms of playstyle, I'm kinda sitting on the fence and playing a bit of everything, so I can win either through Blood Artist or demons swinging or Liliana's Contract .
MurficWPN I agree that it should probably be closer to 30 for a guarantee of always hitting a few, I'm at 27 and will be testing to see if I need to add some back in or not.
DrukenReaps It is something I've had issues with in the past, drawing the demon I'd like to tutor for. I'm actually down on my demon count, even if its still a lot more then normal. I'll test over a few weeks and see how it works. Going through the deck for the first time in a while I found 38 lands and 0 ramp of any sort, so that's been fixed at least. (Not sure how I've played it for so long with no rocks to begin with.
Thanks again to everyone for the advice, I think I have it where I'll enjoy playing it more, but I won't know until i test it again.
