Victim of Night
Destroy target non-Vampire, non-Werewolf, non-Zombie creature.

imo Favorable Winds isn’t worth it, and will generally just mess with your tempo. It’d be more useful as additional killspells.
Glen Elendra Liege also doesn’t feel hugely useful, i’d personally ditch it and run playsets of Circu, Dimir Lobotomist and Shadowmage Infiltrator, and then a few more killspells. Your deck isn’t fast so i don’t think you gain anything from making your creatures “big” - you win by controlling the board and getting incremental value from combat damage.

If you're building to counter a Dragon deck, and you want to keep a deathtouch focus, I recommend adding either more removal like Doom Blade or deathtouch-y fliers like Vampire Nighthawk or Battlefly Swarm. As it stands now, you don't have a lot of interaction--Duress and Victim of Night are good starts, but you don't have many ways to deal with an attacking 4/4 or bigger flying creature, and Power Word Kill does nothing to Dragons.
As another addition, Hooded Blightfang turns your deathtouch creatures into life drain. Since you're not beholden to a format right now, Dark Ritual gives you a shot of mana to get to your more important cards faster.

Finally, Damnation can net you a very strong effect on the field with all your reanimation effects, and Murder is not a very good removal spell. I would consider Snuff Out, Doom Blade, Heartless Act, Infernal Grasp, Walk the Plank, Victim of Night, etc.

Hey I took a look at your list and wrote down some potential cuts/additions that you could make. I tried to keep the reasoning for each card short, so if you want me to elaborate on anything just let me know!!
If you have any questions or comments don't hesitate to reach out again!

You could add the following to make this deck a bit faster, and they're all quite cheap:
cards to remove: Blackblade Reforged, The Eldest Reborn, Smoldering Egg, Volcanic Dragon, Ring of Xathrid, Rune of Mortality
aslo i'd swap Victim of Night for Grim Bounty
i think you want to consider Swiftfoot Boots replacing Ring of Valkas
when those get deathtouch, you can ice any creature that poses a threat to zagras

I think your 2 weakest demons are Archfiend of Depravity and Goremand. Archfiend feels like its not going to do much with how much removal you’re currently running - your opponent is unlikely to have more than 2 creatures anyway. Goremand is a LOT of mana and has a potentially-annoying cast condition. Though personally I think Indulgent Tormentor is your best big-mana creature by a long way here, as it plays to your strengths - i’d suggest dropping Blood Speaker entirely, and just running 3x Indulgent Tormentor and 1x Reaper from the Abyss as your demon suite. Alternatively, a playset of Desecration Demon would be really strong here.
Typically modern decks want their average CMC being just-below 2, so that they can be performant and maintain tempo. You are running some larger creatures that could skew that, but i think aiming for a lower curve would still be good. Maybe 2.2 is a good point to aim for.

Props for the cool deck idea!
You should really be running Shade's Form over any of your current enchantments. It has the upside of you playing it on your own creatures to have the pump ability and protection from removal. I would suggest cutting False Demise for it to focus more on Black than Blue.
Now that I look at your deck, I'm not sure if you should even be playing Blue at all. The only real non-replaceable cards in your maindeck would be Counterspell.
Azure Fleet Admiral could be Thorn of the Black Rose.

If I see some fun art, I'll drop it in.
Further concern, it's probably safest to keep everything suitable for public audiences. Sure, Enthralling Victor and Reversal of Fortune have some skin, and Macabre Waltz and Victim of Night bring some gore, but I've seen some "specialty" sleeves and playmats that go a bit too far for my tastes in both categories, and there's plenty more beyond those. Obligatory "not a prude" and this community seems pretty good at self-piloting, but I'll be the boring one and ask that everything stays reasonably SFW.
