Aethersphere Harvester Discussion

I don't want to come off as aggressive, but have you ever seen the tier 1 burn lists? not a single flyer to the deck. Also, 3 cmc is a very high cost for a 2/3 that dies to bolt. I would take that trade any day as an opponent. Not only that, but you have 20 enablers for life gain, but only 8 payoffs. As for flyers, I'd rather play Aethersphere Harvester or Aven Riftwatcher. At least riftwatcher will get me some amount of payoff for dying.

Sideboards are where you put your more narrow answers that might be good against a few decks.
Aethersphere Harvester against aggro
Sleep Against tokens
Also it could be handy to have different removal like:

Upon thinking about it, ignore my comment about Doomfall.
Also Id say cut the Heart of Kiran or put it in the sideboard. You are going to want more creatures.
Heart of Kiran would just slow it down, its nice for its utilitarian approach, but unless you want to crew your heavy hitters (Rekindling Phoenix, Scrapheap Scrounger, Glorybringer, Goblin Chainwhirler, Hazoret the Fervent...) or to use a loyalty counter from Chandra, Torch of Defiance. but in general you might want something a bit faster. id suggest the Aethersphere Harvester if you had more 1/1's, however just dropping both kiran for a Bomat Courier and a Unlicensed Disintegration might help you out, as you will have a better chance at those 1 drops in your first hand AND more chances for removal since you have a playset of unlicensed and a full playset of bomat. you would want that card advantage and want to beable to use unlicensed disintegration with its trigger for the extra 3 damage. If ya mainboard a Angrath and side one in the side board, id keep the Kirans, as THEN it would be more viable, and even more so in game 2 or 3.
also Arguel's Blood Fast might not be a good idea for the sideboard, it is a bit costly for aggro, yeah the card advantage might be nice but by the time you are down to 5 life, you are going to need more and more creatures to bring back scrapheap scrounger. Arguel's is best with decks that use recursion such as mono black ones or specifically zombies, Embalm or Eternalize.
Lastly, Kari Zev, Skyship Raider is a bit too slow, id opt for Khenra, atleast in early game his ability will allow you to get in additional damage, AND hes great for late game, even when discarded by Hazorets mana ability (which is a good idea in my opinion to get your hand down to one or less AND to get the 4/4 with the power 4 cant block ability the next turn).
This is what I am running for a Rakados build. its basically what you are doing but a little more consistent

This looks like a fairly solid mono-blue flier deck. Curious Obsession just seems vulnerable in this deck - if you don't attack, it dies. If your enchanted creature dies, Curious Obsession dies, etc. I think that I would tend to play 3 Favorable Winds and 2 Curious Obsession or Aethersphere Harvester.
Yes, I agree with Purple_Mage, any added card draw will add value to this deck. While Walking Ballista adds value to almost any deck, it is not doing too much here, while Nimble Obstructionist would bolster your control package and/or give you an extra card draw in a pinch.

For the sideboard until rotation Lifecrafter's Bestiary is one of the best options for green for control and midrange matchups. Nissa, Vital Force until rotation is another very good green card for control and midrange matchups. With more Blossoming Defense the main deck is good against aggro, against Goblin Chainwhirler. Don't need to focus other than some life gain on aggro matchups with the sideboard.
Deathgorge Scavenger is graveyard hate, exile is very helpful, as well as life gain. Very good sideboard card against Scrapheap Scrounger, The Scarab God, Rekindling Phoenix, God-Pharaoh's Gift strategies and Zombies. Reclamation Sage is great against white control/midrange destroying Seal Away, Cast Out, Baffling End, Ixalan's Binding, etc. Sage is also a fine answer to Heart of Kiran and other Vehicles.
Naturalize is an instant way to destroy Gift or Aetherflux Reservoir instant can keep your opponent from comboing out killing you. Vehicles and Scrounger are nice sideboard cards for green to combat nonSettle board wipes. Aethersphere Harvester is life gain for aggro matchups and more defense against flying creatures good against Glorybringer and Nicol Bolas, the Ravager Flip. Vine Mare is good against Grixis Midrange, in Zombie matchups and any matchup with Gifted Aetherborn, The Scarab God or Vraska's Contempt. Until rotation Rhonas the Indomitable and Walking Ballista are great mana sinks with all the mana that Elves can make.

Hey, I only see one kind of Vehicle here? Hardy can call this a Vehicle deck with only one kind of Vehicle... Consider 2-3x Aethersphere Harvester and 2x Skysovereign, Consul Flagship main deck? Rakdos Aggro is the best deck in Standard and without more Vehicles this is a worst version of that deck. You hub this deck competitive, here's some competitive advice, might as well just play Rakdos Aggro with Heart of Kiran, Scrounger, Bomat Courier and Hazoret than trying to reinvent the archetype with only two months left to play it. Scrounger and Heart and is the proven powerful Vehicle interaction. If wanting to play Vehicles then 4x Scrounger and 4x Heart should be the base.
12x Mountains with 4x Dread Shade? I get it, you're trying to bring something new to the table for this archetype, but Shade is and Goblin Chainwhirler is . Perhaps you should of thought about this before you added 4x of each to the same deck? It's nearly impossible to consistently cast Shade with only 9x sources of black mana (I'm not counting Spire). 12x Mountains, any one of these can block you from playing Shade. You want 20-23x black sources in the manabase to consistently cast Shade turn three.
An alternative deck to consider playing is mono black Vehicles? If you like playing Shade then mono-black is the better option, not two colors. Shade's pump ability is a huge reason to play it and it's best with a lot of Swamps. Black with Vehicles gives you some nice options Night Market Lookout with Aethersphere Harvester crew interaction is good. Heart, Aethersphere, Flagship with Shade, Scrounger, Gifted Aetherborn, Graveyard Marshal and Lookout can be a strong base for a black Vehicle strategy. Scrounger and Marshal gives you 8x two drops who alone can crew Heart.
If you're playing a competitive deck than consider a sideboard because it's what truly classifies a deck as competitive. The sideboard has the tools to compete, to give you competitive advantages in matchups in your Standard meta.

Sideboard 2 By Force for God-Pharaoh's Gift decks, 3 Chandra, Torch of Defiance for value and control matchups, 3 Chandra's Defeat for red aggro, 3 Aethersphere Harvester for any aggro, 2 Treasure Map Flip for grindy matchups, and finally 2 Fight with Fire for more good removal.
