Ok so looking at the list it seems like its heavy with ways to protect your commander but maybe a little light on splashy triggers from your commander. Think of it this way, you get Yennett out turn 4/5 and swing next turn. Right now you are much more likely to hit something that won't impact the board much. If (when) I was building it I prioritized cards with awesome Enters the Battlefield abilities. That way if I flipped one with yennett something happened immediately. Thats why sorceries and instants are good with her since it becomes a free spell. Any creature you flip can't do anything until the following turn. I will offer some little suggestions here but you should really consider what your win condition in first. Is it commander damage? Is it swarming with creatures? Do you have a combo you are digging for?
That Which Was Taken is too expensive of protection. Swap for Champion's Helm or General's Kabuto Or possibly just cut it for something that will impact the board like the three new instants from the commander decks in your color Deadly Rollick, Fierce Guardianship and Flawless Maneuver. If you can afford/get those cards they would definitely kick up to compete level here.
You need Lightning Greaves. Getting yennet protected and with haste will always be good. Maybe take out Bloodthirsty Blade since it doesn't do anything for your commander and there are better ways to deal with opponents creatures.
As much as I love Spirit of the Night lets be honest you will never feel good about casting it for 9. If you don't cast it for free it will most always be a bad card in hand. I would replace with the new card Verge Rangers which is perfect for this deck. It will ramp you on occasion AND lets you look at the top of your deck whenever you want.

I'm sorry this just comes to mind: Chris Rock's "Down to Earth"
Yo, Nin is so ugly when she showed up at a guild meeting they thought she was a misplaced Golgari Grave-Troll and threw her back in the basement with the rest of the bulk rare creatures. Her art must've been based off of the Spirit of the Night because they have the exact same face. Even the Dune-Brood Nephilim would be like "Nah gurl, you win the roughest face title, I can make people that would come out and see me. You gotta capture a dude to get a date - after you torture them first."

Hello there! +1 from me!
- Vilis, Broker of Blood : is so ridiculously bonkers, especially with...
- Reanimate , which I'm surprised you don't have. This and Vilis make a one mana draw 8.
- This guy seems perfect for this deck.
- Is... is Sol Ring banned in your meta or what? Is all ramp banned in your meta?
Some cut suggestions:
- It That Betrays doesn't seem worth it with out grave pact effects.
- Spirit of the Night seems like just a big beater.
- Lord of Extinction again, just a big boy. And this one dies to graveyard hate.
- Resolute Archangel Will the multiple fog effects, I wonder how good she usually is. Plus just life gain seems boring.

Sorry, the cards didn't show. Here is a corrected version.
For the mana I would definitely recommend you Tainted Field because it is very cheap and still quite a big improvement. Then I would exchange Urza's Armor for Sphere of Grace or Pariah . As an early removal I would recommend you High Priest of Penance . As a last addition, I recommend Spirit of the Night . The card is very fun to play as a finisher. There are certainly better alternatives but I like this card.
If you want to spend a little more money I can recommend Demonic Tutor (instead of Beseech the Queen) and Cabal Coffers very well. I only have Demonic Tutor myself because Cabal Coffers is too expensive for me.

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. =/
