Hey. I've been working on my Karador deck for awhile, and I've seen it start as a flavorful stax/weenie deck that had trouble closing games into a staple machine that was full of broken cards but usually did a worse job than powerful commanders like Riku of Two Reflections , Damia, Sage of Stone and Maelstrom Wanderer who fit the "fill your deck with staples" role much better. I'm trying to figure out how to keep the deck flavorful so that it's fun but still able to compete in a meta full of powerful, broken decks.

TLDR; just an excuse to look at and critique other people's Karador, Ghost Chieftain decks. Here's some changes I think you might consider:

(- ) 7
1. Ulvenwald Tracker is a bit underwhelming because he needs your opponents to have creatures, and you to have better creatures, he is slow (summoning sickness) and only taps once a turn in this deck.
2. Shriekmaw is expensive targeted removal. If you want this effect try out Necrotic Sliver which is more versatile if a bit more expensive, or get around hexproof shenanigans with Slum Reaper , a bit worse than your Fleshbag Marauder , or Fiend Hunter which is cheap and exiles things permanently if you have a sac outlet available when you cast it. Fiend hunter is also better synergy with Reveillark .
3. Saffi Eriksdotter is OK to discourage targeted removal and helps you when the board gets wrathed. However, you don't really mind if your critters go to the 'yard, and the saffi//reivellark//karmic guide combo is hard to assemble, slow, and easy to stop.
4. Angel of Despair is very expensive for targeted removal. I'd rather run the 3-for-1 Angel of Serenity , or a cheaper one-off that is more versatile like Oblation to remove a permanent more permanently, or save your own permanent from exile and draw you a couple cards. I think that karador decks tend to be a bit a top heavy and replacing this angel w/ a cheaper effect might help your early- and mid-game a bit.
5. Damnation is great for flavor but you could easily replace this with Wrath of God or any other boardwipe in a deck with white, and trade the Damnation for some sweet cards. I'd rather have the instant speed Fated Retribution , the more versatile Catastrophe , or the easy-to-cast Retribution of the Meek here. Speaking of which, how has the flexible Merciless Eviction been working for you?
6. I'd replace Reclamation Sage with Qasali Pridemage or Leonin Relic-Warder . The exalted trigger from the pridemage is useful sometimes, and he acts as a sort of rattlesnake when he sits around and you have mana open. The relic-warder can exile things permanently if you have a sac outlet when he comes into play.

(+ ) 6
1. Phyrexian Tower is a better sac outlet than High Market and Miren, the Moaning Well , the ritual effect is great and it only uses a land slot; enters untapped. Also, way way way way cheaper than Diamond Valley .
2. Crop Rotation and Harrow are instant speed. Crop Rotation is card DISadvantage, but will grab ANY land in your deck. Harrow really costs "G" to ramp you ahead by one basic land (when all is said and done). Unless your meta is hyper-competitive no one bothers to counter these cards (grief play in my meta) and they help out your land/graveyard tech Life from the Loam , Crucible of Worlds , Sun Titan , and Knight of the Reliquary .
3. Peacekeeper and Gaddock Teeg stop many decks in their tracks, giving you time. Both help you more than they hurt because you can sac them when you need to and recur them before your end-step. Another possibility is the recently reprinted Silent Arbiter .
4. Flagstones of Trokair is expensive ($$$) but is good synergy with Crop Rotation , Harrow , Catastrophe if you use any of those, and may end up in the graveyard when you use cards like Hermit Druid . If you go in this direction, consider the much cheaper ($$$) Riftstone Portal as well.

Sick build! These are just ideas, more than suggestions. Sorry for the wall of text!

I love your philosophy behind the deck and it looks rather interesting but I think this would definitely fit more into the realm of an EDH deck. Some commanders that fit the "appear weak when strong, and appear strong when weak" are Riku of Two Reflections , Vorel of the Hull Clade , Phelddagrif among others. This idea is fascinating and the colors you chose are great but this has much more potential as an EDH deck seeing that it is a much slower and diverse format.

My personal pick for a "deception" EDH would be Vorel of the Hull Clade . His ability is subtle but simultaneously powerful. Cards like Darksteel Reactor , Magistrate's Scepter and Lux Cannon can soon turn Vorel of the Hull Clade 's subtle ability into backbreaking board control, and even wins that seemingly come from nowhere.

Do you care if the Birds of Paradise is Chinese, and the Exploration is from Conspiracy? I was mostly interested in Riku of Two Reflections , Temple of Epiphany and Magus of the Future . Was there anything else in my binder that you're interested in?

I'll mull over it a bit and see if I can decide on anything. Aside from what I have listed I'm also looking for odds and ends for Riku of Two Reflections and Nekusar, the Mindrazer EDH.

I love a good Animar, Soul of Elements deck. I have one that wins consistently, but it is really hated.

I like Varolz, the Scar-Striped . You play stuff like Death's Shadow and Phyrexian Dreadnought on turn 1 and scavenge them to deal 21 commander damage really quickly. He is very underestimated, so people won't go for you right away.

Sen Triplets is probably one of my favorites too. One @ my LGS wins occasionally. It starts off slow so no one attacks it at first, but it finishes strong.

My friend plays a Rhys the Redeemed token deck that wins often.

I used to play Riku of Two Reflections and then switched to animar. Riku won me quite a few games too.
