I am not very familiar with HoF, but in normal mode I would go for dual-wielding to maximize damage output. It just feels very powerful and gives also a lot of options for different weapon combinations.
The first evil-themed weapons that come to my mind are 1) Presio's dagger (additional poison damage), 2) the flail Misery's Herald (has a chance to cast Horror on hit), 3) the mace The Love of Black Bess (has a chance to cast Misfortune on hit) and 4) the short sword Blood Iron (heals you a bit). And yeah, there are definitely some poisonous/diseased weapons, but most of them are random drops? Also, maybe HoF has some additional items that I am not aware of?
So... I would maybe pick morningstars/flails since they are generally really strong and seem to fit the theme. Then maybe daggers (or short swords) for more assassin-like fighting style?

a very good weapon weapon for a blackguard;
two-handed sword+3 Bane: 25% chance of causing 1 point of poison damage per second indefinitely (the most destructive poison weapon of the game), also gives 10% of magic resistance, only usable for non-good characters. But it's a random drop from the Auril priestess in the frost giant cavern
