Your shadow damage is very good for your level. I expect you're sitting on a good chunk of the shadoweave set with those numbers. It'll help you to grind quickly. It's also enough to take advantage of the Emp Corruption talent.
Imp Curse of Agony is a so-so leveling talent and not much good at 70. In higher end instances, heroics, and raids you'll be either forgoing a curse completely because the mob will die too quickly for it to be of any use or you'll have a superior choice. In PvP, the extra 200 or so damage it'll add on isn't significant against 10k+ health opposition and you'll usually have other uses for the curse slot.
While leveling, you're again adding 10% damage onto a backloaded damage curse. Meh. At your level, that's maybe 60 damage if it runs its full course. Not exactly a showstopper. In the meantime, Affliction is blessed with tons of highly useful talents on the low end of the tree. For example, you've skipped Nightfall - which is a huge talent for the typical drain tank grind.
Other than that, everything looks solid.
Hi, as a 54 warlock, this is what I used at your level.
Shadow Embrace gives your Drain Life spell an additional 4% drain.
Nightfall is really nice to have, allowing you do do burst damage.
Improved Curse of Agony isn't all that wonderful, considering it's a backloaded spell.
