Some more possibilities Witch's Cottage for Hemwick Charnel Lane. Then Bogbrew Witch or Chittering Witch as the Witch of Hemwick.

Maybe Scrounger of Souls or Phyrexian Obliterator as the Blood Starved Beast.

Brago, King Eternal as the Martyr Logarius? Unfortunately I couldn't really think of many fitting magic cards with Scythes being the feature.

I know the combo isn't as strong without four ofs, but you should consider Bogbrew Witch and Festering Newt as well.

I feel like this absolutely needs Identity Thief and a Delirium package. However, I think that this is more just a flavor thing, so I’ll say the above, Dark Impostor , Dimir Doppelganger , Arcane Adaptation , and the classic Bogbrew Witch , Festering Newt , and Bubbling Cauldron package. Laboratory Maniac is super flavorful as well.

But since you look to be going with some heavy black synergies... have you considered The Haunt of Hightower as a commander? It’s definitely, imo, the coolest Halloween-themed commander, being both super cool and very spooky. Still, I understand if you have an attachment to the Reaper King after so long.

Also, whenever a spell or ability has you search out a specifically named card (like with Bogbrew Witch does), it uses the wording "search [zone] for a card named [card name]". If it doesn't use that wording, then it's referring to a quality of the card you're searching for.

First off I'm going to assume this is more of a casual Modern deck due to the cmc'c of the creatures. If it isn't I would recommend making sure the majority of the creatures is 1 and 2 drops, but for casual it seems quite cool (I love tribal decks). Next, I'm not sure if you are on a budget, but if you aren't Thoughtseize is simply the best discard spell ever printed (not terribly expensive). Also Inquisition of Kozilek is the next best, but if you are in a more casual play group rather than a turn 4 play group it may not be as good (still good though). Finally, if this is more of a "good" casual Modern deck with the Festering Newt and Bubbling Cauldron combo you should probably include Bogbrew Witch .

I'm a sucker for themed decks, and while you may not know it, you've got the foundation for one in Bogbrew Witch, Bubbling Cauldron, and Festering Newt. Running a full 4 copies of the witch and the cauldron will allow you to take advantage of them more often. Also, 4 copies of Supernatural Stamina lets you recur Festering Newt for more shenanigans.

Viscera Seer is a great scry card, letting you set up your draws at the cost of sacrificing a creature.

Zulaport Cutthroat, Blood Artist, and Mogg War Marshal are 2-drops that benefit you when they die, which means they combo decently with your cauldron and the Viscera Seer card I mentioned above.

Cast Down and Vicious Offering are great cheap removal spells; Fatal Push is best if you decide to build something sacrificial.

I love the combination of Cemetery Recruitment with Lurching Rotbeast. That's 12 cards worth of card draw over the course of the game. Adding some Zombies to take advantage of Recruitment isn't bad.

Sorry. I know these are a lot of suggestions. These are what came to mind when I saw this.

Try out going a tiny bit more on witch tribal with the Bogbrew Witch jank package.

I'd think running 4 x Festering Newt, 2 x Bubbling Cauldron and 3 x Bogbrew Witch. Would be janky, fun, and improve this curve a tad.

I'd cut 3 x toil, the 2 altar's reap, 2 bitterheart witches and two curse of misfortunes
