I have been building and rebuilding a mono black Halloween deck for a few years. I can never decide on which cards to keep and which to cut, wether or not it needs a secondary theme (discard, zombies, etc.) to be a little competitive or just put in anything that fits best and play it for the lolz.
Kudos for making the attempt!

Zulaport Cutthroat only works for your own creatures though, while Falkenrath Noble works for the creatures you're no scoping. I also believe Cabal Torturer and Banshee were in an earlier version of the deck.

Crown of Empires, Pacification Array, Tumble Magnet, Zulaport Cutthroat (much better than Falkenrath Noble, Cabal Torturer, Banshee (X=0), and maybe find a way to untap your artifacts so you can do it all again.

Banshee. Black has much better options for this effect, like Exsanguinate.
Crenellated Wall. Not worth that effect.
Leaden Myr. Creatures that ramp you aren't as good as mana rocks.
Master of the Feast is only good in 60-card formats, because he presents an early 4-turn clock. In EDH, that card draw he gives your opponents will kill you long before he can threaten anyone's life.
Nefashu can only clear out a few of the weakest creatures you'll face, and will be eaten alive by most EDH creatures.
Mogis's Marauder and Orc Sureshot are only good if you're playing a mass resurrection or mass token type deck, since they both require a large number of creatures to enter the same turn they do to get full effect. Cut them.
Rathi Trapper has a mediocre ability at best.
Stay tuned for part two: artifacts.

There are gobs of great options that have additional utility prior to your general's arrival (some are better than others). It seems like you're looking for non-creature permanents though (which makes sense because then they'd be targetable with Harobi out as well), so I'll keep that in mind. There are the tappers/untappers: Puppet Strings, Thousand-Year Elixir, Ice Floe, Icy Manipulator, and Trip Noose, the damage dealers/preventers: Banshee (can also be a finisher), Oasis, Panacea, Sorin Markov, and Talon of Pain, the P/T modifiers: Unspeakable Symbol, Nefashu, Retreat to Hagra, Belbe's Armor, Necropolis Fiend, Island of Wak-Wak, and other assorted target effects: Shadow Alley Denizen, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Maze of Ith, Power Matrix, Erratic Portal, and Predator, Flagship. Also worth mentioning is that Endless Whispers combos well with Horobi and repeatable targeting effects.
This deck looks really fun. I'm tempted to make a version of it myself! Also, there are toooons more options that you can find with a quick gatherer search.
