This looks hilarious, I love the sheer brutality this deck represents. I've been struggeling to build a Saskia deck in a similar style, and yours really helps me with that. Thanks a lot!
Looking through your list, I think I have some useful suggestions.
First, Drizzt Do'Urden would propably be another quite awesome addition, the same goes for Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats. And Vona, Butcher of Magan. Seriously, this deck could basically every badass looking character one could find.
Then, you play such a high amount of legendary creatures that Heroes' Podium has actual finisher potential. And it even draws cards.
Finally, a thing I've always considered hilarious for Saskia would be blink spells. Just imagine attacking the player chosen for Saskia, with the other two opponents thinking they're save, to then flicker Saskia, resulting in an unexpected double kill.

Hey, Satoru Umezawa is spicy tech. Some other tech to consider is Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats? Makes it so with Belakor any Demon who ETB can kill any creature it targets with damage. Belakor + Great Unclean One is a machine gun with Zagras.
How about adding a few lower mana cost Demons with evasion to help to get through for ninjutsu? These can also help to get more Demons on the battlefield quicker for Belakor draw.
- Changeling Outcast --> Demonlord Belzenlok
- Blade of the Oni --> Gyruda, Doom of Depths
- Taborax, Hope's Demise --> Warstorm Surge
- Herald of Torment --> Venomcrawler
Loot, more entomb effects and expanding on reanimation are more ways to get Demons on the battlefield quicker, relying less on ramp.
- Faithless Looting --> Brainstorm
- Animate Dead --> Molten Echoes
- Entomb --> Panharmonicon
- Azra Oddsmaker --> Rakdos Signet
Emergence Zone is helpful with Liliana's Contract. It's mana before you want it as a flash source. Flash allows Contract to be on the battlefield much less time then not which gives you more chances of winning with Contract.
Good luck with your deck.

I've been looking for a way to build Saskia, and I really like what you did here. Might I suggest Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats to go with Archetype of Courage? As you're already running Stuffy Doll, how about Brash Taunter? It's even removal with Zagras.

Woh quite a lot of new vampires, sadly many are with the Blood Token mechanics, and as I don't want to change my deck too much there aren't really much of a point to include them, but I did found place for 4 new vampires:
+1 Edgar, Charmed Groom Flip
+1 Henrika Domnathi Flip
+1 Olivia, Crimson Bride
+1 Welcoming Vampire
-1 Vampire Nighthawk
-1 Bloodlord of Vaasgoth
-1 Necropolis Regent
-1 Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats
Comments\suggestions are always welcomed, trying to update this deck from time to time along my other decks.

On a sidenote, I imagine we'll get a un-blue (WBRG) commander somewhere in the future to combine all these forced combat monstrosities.
Also: The Oaths are a cycle? Didn't know that.
Regarding Karazikar, Bloodthirsty Blade is awesome, obviously. When building Thantis, I started with some combat tricks that either grant deathtouch or turn the attacker into a glass cannon (Auger Spree) to make multi-kills in every combat more frequent. Trumpet Blast maybe? Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats is great in attacky decks, and I imagine that Karazikar will include some party-relevant types by default without even trying. You could play into granting creatures to opponents, but that might lead too far. Disrupt Decorum is obvious, and I really like the new Hellish Rebuke.

Next thing, as you're already included Brash Taunter and Stuffy Doll, how about Blazing Sunsteel for the infinite combo?
Finally, you mentioned that you don't want to be attacked to often. How about Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats to mitigate that?

This looks like an interesting starting point, I'll have a look every once in a while to see the deck's progress. With your big focus on deathtouch, how about Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats , Bow of Nylea and especially Fynn, the Fangbearer ?

This looks pretty cool. Maybe consider Zagras, Thief of Heartbeats ?
