I have made a handful of Halloween decks in the past, i have yet to make one i absolutely loved and that felt right.
My favorite though was mono black helmed by Spirit of the Night .
Seems a perfect fit to play the roll of Samhein. Problem was filling the deck with spooky creatures was fun, but actually playing the deck was lackluster.
What I really want to do is build a solid mono black deck then custom all the cards that don't fit the spooky theme well enough with new names and art to make them more halloweeny.
For instance Phyrexian Arena has nothing to do with Halloween but if you were to call the card Trick-or-Treat? It fits thematically as getting the card is the treat and the life loss the treat...
Sometimes I think about these things way too much.

Why not have reanimation as a backup strategy for getting Spirit of the Night out? After all, he's not much use to you if you ever draw the handsome lugnut. Entomb and Putrid Imp are classic enablers, with Necromancy and Exhume being reliable ways to bring him back. The perennially underrated Body Snatcher , however, handles both parts of the equation on his own!

One of mine was Spirit of the Night . I love the artwork on this card. I never played it with Urborg Panther , Feral Shadow and Breathstealer like you're supposed to. Mostly because I was like 12 at the time and didn't have the awareness that competitive magic was a thing. I might build a Mono Black deck one day around this "combo" just for old times sake.

Heyo, thanks for checking! I never played the Spirit of the Night combo you mentioned but it sounds like my type of complicated, lol! And yeah, feel free to peruse my folder and suggest whatever. I'm always open to advice (plus I'm notorious for slapping a deck together on a whim and then ignoring it for months).
Raven's Crime is favorite pauper of mine, so good suggestion. =) I had considered Duress or Distress, but my little playgroup is more on the casual side. But still, good idea, and it'll probably happen one day, after I mess around a bit.
And yeah, I was still building it when you first commented. No worries! The last 4 cards I put in were Unnatural Endurance and I'm kinda iffy on it, we'll see after some playtests.
Finally, no, I've been avoiding TWD, and am gonna binge it all at once soon. The show's kinda lost my interest for some reason, which is sad, but... idk. Hopefully these new episodes will be better for me. =/

this reminds me of the mirage classic Spirit of the Night coming in to play by way of sacking Urborg Panther, Feral Shadow, and Breathstealer. I have to dig deeper on your stuff if you get the chance check out my blue black madness deck I posted a few days back. I really want to recommend Raven's Crime to you 4 copies would at least make the deck playable for now plus it super sweet when you top deck land and can make your opponent drop control cards, actually had to explain to my gf, and best friend that countering it was just tapping land and still discarding a card lol

Every year I brew up a deck around Halloween based on the holiday and horror movie tropes... its always a little different but always helps get me in the spirit of the season. Last years commander was Spirit of the Night and he might stay as he seems the most fitting.
Another idea i've had but never followed through on was to do a deck based around the wild. All the creature cards in the deck had to be non-speaking "animal" type creatures and my commander was the only one with significant intelligence. You could do a Jungle Book type of deck as a theme for sure.

I like your deck. Didn't even know that Volrath the Fallen existed.
Draco, Spirit of the Night and Dread are not that good on their own. They seem to be in here mainly because of their high cmc. Maybe add Grave Titan, Overseer of the Damned, Sheoldred, Whispering One and Solemn Simulacrum as cards that are more useful on their own. They still have a reasonable cmc for Volraths ability.
Rings of Brighthearth for copying Volraths ability
although you already have a lot of cards that grant evasion, you maybe could consider Dragon Shadow but I'm not sure about the usefulness of Fear to be honest
I'd not recommend to run Rituals cause they're one-shots. Better play Mind Stone because ramp that cycles in the lategame is great. You already run Commander's Sphere. Maybe consider Hedron Archive as well.
