I really like the deck. Maybe, what you can do is swap the site-control engine for stacking possessions and In the wild men's wake? And if you play with 4 ceremonial armors, you can discard them for damage bonuses.

Ferny's can be had for $10 easily at the moment.

First, interesting idea. I'll think of it.

Secondly, where? I just bought 2 Fernys for about 17$ a piece.

on ebay.com there was one ferny that did not sell for $10 twice.

Play standard :D But seriously make it standard. I think it would be better in standard as ferny is good against alt rb, but not so against hobbits (to less twillight, which is a problem anyway). 

I'm gonna have to agree here, the deck is not competitive at all what with Ithilien Blade and [Elven] hunters running amok.

and bumpish kinda but I saw it and had to comment.

This is interesting. I tried it a few times. I'm still new to standard so maybe it's my lack of playing ability, but I feel like this shadow is unstable. I want it to work, I really do, because it's an awesome idea-- and I'm having no trouble getting Ferny on the ring-bearer-- but there aren't enough pumps for Ferny once he gets there. It's really hard to get him to win skirmishes. It takes too long to get enough sites under control to make the Chieftain useful, and it's absolutely useless against any kind of choke deck. I tried adding Overrun and Pavise and Whistling Death and made a few other changes so it's not so reliant on site-control, but it's just not happening. It needs some kind of heavy-duty pumping system for Ferny so that he's more reliable in skirmishes, and there aren't enough pump events for Evil Men.

It's a shame because I love this idea. I just think it needs something.

This is what I came up with for Bill one day:

2x *Last Days (12U71)
2x Countless Companies (12U58)
4x Gathering Strength (12U66)
4x In the Wildman's Wake (17R45)
4x *Bill Ferny, Agent of Saruman (15R72)
3x *The Mouth of Sauron, Messenger of Mordor (12S73)
4x Sunland Scout (17R56)
4x Sunland Trooper (17C59)
4x Sunland Warrior (17C60)
4x Wildman's Oath (17C66)

Get at least 1 wildman's oath out and stack all your minions on them. Get hold of Bill and a few wildman's wakes and wait till you can unleash him, maybe even with last days so you can get passed ugly wounding/exerting decks. You can lauch him at the site where you can exert him to give him damage bonus, but then you should add Pavise. That is a good laugh.
Concerning site control, also not that difficult:

1x Countless Companies (12U58)
1x Rapid Reload (15U89)
4x *Gothmog, Lieutenant of Morgul (10R88)
4x *The Mouth of Sauron, Messenger of Mordor (12S73)
4x Archer of Harad (11U67)
4x Engrossed Hillman (15U78)
4x Rapt Hillman (15U90)
4x Swarthy Hillman (15C93)
4x White Hand Invader (17C128)
4x Pavise (11C94)

Rapt Hillman with Pavise and you are good to go.

Yeah, site control can actually get pretty sick. With the lack of cultural enforcement running amok with White Hand Invader and Gothmog, Lieutenant of Morgul, that is.
