You have a great base to expand upon. Lord Discordants are good, if you enjoy using them consider getting 1 or 2 more and running them together in a soulforged detachment. If you want to take a demon engine theme along with the discordants, consider delifers/maulerfiends.

If you want some ranged firepower and don't mind the expensive forgeworld models, all their dreadnoughts are pretty good to use. Alternatively you could use obliterators or terminators.

If you want to add demons in, there's a few ways to play.
Big blobs of Bloodletters if you like khorne.
Plaguebearers with poxbringer and spoilpox and maybe some nurglings if you like nurgle.
Tzeentch makes really good demon princes which you can bring 2 plus Ahriman in TS supreme command.

My son is deadset on a Bloodthirster at some point, so some bloodletters don't seem like a bad idea. The Hellbrute and delifers seem useful and have nifty models.

If I run red corsairs is there any problem with using mixed god armies, ie Tzeentch sorcerer, Khorne chaos lord, etc?

If a bloodthirster is your thing, bloodletter bombs do work well to keep in theme with khorne. A bloodthirster is a big threat and will likely be blasted off the table before he even does anything and cause grief to your son. To mitigate this, you need to have more high priority targets running around to saturate the threat or have multiple bloodthirsters. Maybe you could even consider bringing in one of the new chaos knights from the new kit as now the opponent has to decide whether to deal with the demon or the knight.

Defilers work well when running up with Lord Discordants. Hellbrutes are decent. They are cheaper financially than a forgeworld dreadnought but personally I would bring a dread over a hellbrute.

You wont have any problems running mixed god armies in red corsairs. If you are making your lord discordant your warlord, do consider marking him slaanesh and giving him the intoxicating elixir relic.
