Thank you for the upvote subrosian, I'm glad you like the deck! I went with Familiar's Ruse as the signature spell because I really wanted to have my Ninjas be a big part of this deck; and Ruse can deny someone from playing a game ending spell as well as allow me to strike with Ninjutsu again; It's just a personal theme/gimmick im going for. ETB creatures do seem to be a no brainer but im trying to avoid relying on them because I do not want to nonbo with Torpor Orb (although maybe running both ETB creatures with orb wouldnt hurt?)..I am running Orb because I am predicting to see many blink/flicker things like Trinket Mage / Knight of Autumn to come up a lot. Also it would ruin me to deal with Siege Rhino :p

Sideboard: Keep your Shamble Back - it will be clutch against Siege Rhino . Keep Tainted Remedy as well. Move Relentless Dead to the mainboard or cut it completely. Cut everything else unless you really want to mainboard something. Add 1-2x Ghost Quarter , (great against Tron) 1-2x Pithing Needle (Will be helpful against planeswalkers and some artifacts (think Expedition Map !) and some enchantments (think Freed from the Real !), 1-2x Ratchet Bomb (Another way to get rid of nasty enchantments and artifacts), 1x Elixir of Immortality (life gain and anti-Turbo Fog/Mill), 2-3xGrey Merchant of Asphodel would probably be effective lifegain in the sideboard.
Probably a board wipe of some kind would be good in the sideboard. Bontu's Last Reckoning is what I'd suggest, but there are lots of other options here: http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/mh-board-wipe/ Killing Wave might also work. Smallpox could be decent, too, provided you can sac and discard zombies you can cast from the graveyard. If you do add some Smallpox, you'll probably want to add 3 lands, maybe even 4.

I thought about putting in Conqueror's Galleon Flip but the crew cost was more than I really wanted to pay since most of the creatures only have 0-2 power. Oketra the True is nice but she has just a bit too much power to fit with the theme, but making tokens is nice, so maybe. Whip of Erebos won't actually give me that much life (unless I already have a Doran, the Siege Tower effect out), plus I think the deck is already gaining enough life. The temporary reanimation isn't bad, but the deck doesn't really need that at this point. Siege Rhino is just good, but it doesn't fit the deck's theme at all unfortunately.
Thanks for the recommendations though.

Solid list, I build a deck like this using basically every charm I could find and slowly took them out the add in good cards. Eventually I just started playing Siege Rhino as a finisher and that was where this deck took me. I like your idea for a build to say no mono and see what happens. Enjoy the journey. A few thought from my experience building with this commander.
Ramos, Dragon Engine works well with some extra +1/+1 counters on it. Opal Palace is a land you probably want to add and Forge of Heroes might help you if you aren't afraid of the colorless mana. You may even want to slide in a Corpsejack Menace to get those counters going.
I don't have any strong thoughts on what to cut from your list. There seem to be some cards that you may be forcing into the deck to get more colors: Saskia the Unyielding , Kynaios and Tiro of Meletis , Knotvine Mystic , Counterflux , Nissa, Steward of Elements and Lord Windgrace . Each one of these cards is an answer to certain situations, but I'm not sure which ones you like/use often.
Just to clarify, Jodah, Archmage Eternal is an alternate way to cast the spell; it does not put 5 counters on your commander. Since most of your spells aren't really high costed you may want to cut the archmage.
Also I noticed you aren't abusing hybrid Figure of Destiny is a solid one-drop and can grow if your colors are right. Another thing to abuse are cards like Fieldmist Borderpost , you don't run a lot of basics, so this may not be a thing for you.

Something I completely forgot about earlier, if you google “[card name here] ban announcement” you will usually find Wizards’ explination as to why the card was banned. It might help you understand the need for each ban a bit better.
With regards to Vannifer, it is possible that deck could make a splash, but you’re running into the problem of (a) Vannifer effectively costing one mana more than Birthing Pod, and (b) Vannifer not being in GBW, as Birthing Pod was at its height ( Kitchen Finks , Murderous Redcap , Siege Rhino ) (though threats can probably be found to mitigate this issue).

Creature - Eldrazi Horror
Ruin Skulker gets +1/+1 for each land card in a graveyard.
Some blossom in decay.
Here's a new challenge: Remember Siege Rhino ? Create a 4-drop for any other Tarkir fraction that would have had similar standard impact as Siege Rhino had.

Odd ass this may sound, you might have too many creatures and the creatures you have may also need minor adjustment. Renegade Rallier , Wall of Omens , Strangleroot Geist or Selfless Spirit seem like they would be ideal as does Eldritch Evolution in a sacrifice deck. I wouldn't play a graveyard strategy here, one, decks are running graveyard hate in the main-board and two, you won't do it as well as a deck dedicated to it.
Siege Rhino and Restoration Angel would be viable with Eldritch, Qasali Ambusher would already be good in your deck, but it's even better if you can cast it for free then flip it over to a Thragtusk or Sigarda, Host of Herons . You also want a basic Plains in your deck, heck you might want to go to 20 land.
I guess what I'd do as a starter is:
-2 Birds of Paradise -2 Blood Artist -1 Collected Company -1 Rally the Ancestors -2 Cartel Aristocrat
+2 Land (1 a Plains) +1 Siege Rhino +1 Renegade Rallier +1 Restoration Angel +3 Eldritch Evolution
As an aside, the single best card to use with Varolz, the Scar-Striped is Death's Shadow ... I hope this is of some help, good luck with your brew.
