Post Nyarlathotep
I know he has countless forms, but I only know these couple:

Tesla (Black Pharaoh?)

Bloody-Tongue

Haunter of the Dark

Maybe someone could tell me what the others are?

I remember reading (somewhere on Wikipedia) a table of his forms, but the page seems to be non-existant. Much thanks to anyone that helps.

One of his avatars was named Lostalus Black. Unfortunately, I can't remember much about said avatar ....

Some annotions have implied that in Whisperer in Darkness, Nyarlathotep might have disguised himself as Henry Akeley, the human who stumbled upon the mi-go.

If I remember right, I think Black just showed up in one adventure ("Look to the Future," in Shadows of Yog-Sothoth) and was only described as an occultist. Once again if I recall, he was responsible for creating some gates to the future.

While The Dark Tower gave Flagg's origin, I prefer to think of him as Nyarlathotep to the Crimson King's Azathoth. I prefer the old demonic Flagg from The Stand. While we're on the topic of Nyarlathotep in Stephen King, Leland Gaunt in Needful Things could pass as him, too.

The black goat of the wood
the black farao
even the strange shopkeeper Leland Gaunt in Needfull things (stephen king) is a candidate to be one of his avatars

I believe you mean "The Black Man of the Woods" - an avatar that is mentioned in Case of Charle Dexter Ward and appears in Dreams in the Witchhouse.

Shub-Niggurath is "The Black Goat of the Woods with a Thousand Young".

The Cthulhu wiki has a very good list of his forms and citations to sources! :)
