Alright. Allow me to break this down.
Due to my inexperience with Mutate shenanigans, I shall focus more upon the ards I find generally lacking.
Now, as often as I read the terms of service, a lot of text does not necessarily mean a lot of synergy. The commander format espouses synergistic decks as opposed to ones fraught with individual card power. I thusly advocate for this card's removal.
Unless you are initiating combos with Brash Taunter, 'tis not a very good card. In a regular circumstance, it is around five damage for eight mana, which it severally lacking. The indestructibility is nice, but the majority of the format's removal is in the form of exile or bounce. I would kill it.
Some of these cards were designed for Ikoria limited, but not for outside of that format. What I would recommend excluding are Everquill Phoenix, Glowstone Recluse, Pouncing Shoreshark, and Dreamtail Heron. They are okay but below average.
Lastly, Blackblade Reforged is a strong card, but I would focus more on the value part of your plan as averse to the big creature plan. Illuna's mutate trigger accelerates your board state, thus making a single large idiot makes the plan susceptible to a single kill spell.
I have tried Soothsaying myself, yet had found the card to be far too much mana to be effective. There is not much to say. It cannot put cards to the bottom, nor can it permit much filtering with little mana spent.
Everquill Phoenix is a fine card, but I would rather have an additional engine piece as averse to a 4/4 flyer.
That shall be all from me, but I may offer additional insights as other edits are made to this list.
Farewell, and may all of fortune have you.

- Despark is a good card but some counter synergy.

I am only saying this because you mentioned this is your first Commander deck: going down the infinite combo route and playing this many tutors will result in very similar games for you. If consistency is your focus that can be a good thing, but if it is your only deck it can get repetitive fast.
In most cases, Memory Jar makes all your opponents draw 7 and discard 7 cards when you trigger it. That can be a win for you with the right setup.. I second Bloodchief Ascension as mentioned above, with or without Mindcrank.
Consider adding either Teferi's Protection or Flawless Maneuver. You may want to Invest some space for spot removal like Vindicate and Anguished Unmaking or Despark. As for mass removal, you may find Winds of Abandon more satisfying than Fumigate if you have a board.
Finally, I think you would like Sangromancer. I do.
Hope you find something useful, welcome to the Commander format!

TriusMalarky - haha thanks!! Yeah, I'm basically just retooling the whole Karador deck to make it more fun for everyone. I removed all the hate bears (besides Teeg) and all the tutors so far, along with Hulk and Boonweaver + Pattern Rebirth/Academy Rector.
I took whatqwerty advice and added Spore Frog and Caustic Caterpillar. I'm also basically going more of an Toolbox/Reanimator route adding in some creatures to win through combat and that are powerful. Kokusho, the Evening Star, Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Craterhoof Behemoth, Massacre Wurm, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Luminous Broodmoth, Razaketh, the Foulblooded, etc.
Just going to try making some of those updates for now - still trying to construct the deck a different way.
But I appreciate all the feedback! I'm open to anymore suggestions all :)

Hello, you deck looks really nice. I have some suggestions of cards for you to think about:
First, as mentioned before Leyline of the Void, Anguished Unmaking, Despark are good cards to consider, and I also think you should lose the Lingering Souls for something more useful to you. For the same 3 mana you could drop Phyrexian Arena, Grim Tutor, Crypt Incursion, a third Wrath of God or you could lower your curve and play Surgical Extraction, Extirpate, Smallpox, Inquisition of Kozilek, Castigate, Dark Confidant
Secondly I would like to recommend some artifact and enchantment removal, mostly for sideboard, since you are within the color range of dealing with those easily: Revoke Existence, Fragmentize, Heliod's Intervention, Demystify

A couple of things that came to my mind when looking at your list were adding Leyline of the Void and perhaps adding a couple more lands. Leyline could come into play early and possibly free up several spots for other interaction such as the 4th thoughtseize and something like Despark or Anguished Unmaking. To make room for this I would look to cutting a couple of the other graveyard hate cards and maybe a copy of fall of the thran. I know fall is a big piece for your deck, but at 6 mana you'll have several turns to draw one before ever being able to cast it.
Another consideration for removing from the deck would be the copies of lingering souls. A couple 1/1's aren't very threatening, especially when you have cards like Omnath, Locus of Creation and Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath running around. This might be where I would look to add the lands in. The flip lands from zendikar rising would probably be good candidates for this.
As far as finding more powerful finishers, the classic Death's Shadow is not only cheap but can be quite powerful as well. That could be very useful once you've blown up all the lands.
But these are my general thoughts as far as the main deck goes. Did you have anything in mind when it came to the sideboard?

It's your boy Jason.
Here's a bunch of cards that should be less than $1 that I think could be possible additions. Feel free to ignore me. Also this is Zach: Zjadler and this is Stephen: icefrigi if you want to check out their decks.

I guess I could say your stance on the community's concerns for this secret lair is...cold-blooded (see what I did there? You're just like Negan like you claimed! Haha) /jk
Joking aside, is there a specific reason you have Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet in the list? The reason I ask is because he shuts off all your "when a creature an opponent controls dies" triggers, such as Revel in Riches, Blood Artist, and Gadrak, the Crown-Scourge, Ob Nixilis, Yahenni, etc. If your friends are all playing graveyard decks I can see this as a piece of GY hate, otherwise you might want to replace him?
Also you have a lot of board wipes, but I didn't see any "sacrifice" wipes aside from Mythos of Snapdax. Single Combat, Slaughter the Strong, Tragic Arrogance, and Killing Wave. These will play nice with Negan since you can save him if you want (and you'll still get the treasure tokens whether you save him or sac him).
