VEhicles are pretty much new-fangled Equipment with a different way to pay equip costs. Equipment upgrades weaker creatures. The inefficiency part of vehicles for me comes when you have to do it every turn.

Also, Heart of Kiran's crew cost is a bit high for just 2 elvish mystics. Also, if you had 2 elvish mystics, you could cast Archangel Avacyn  Flip on turn 3 for pretty much the same 4/4 flying vigilance.

Weird_Frisbee I originally had second harvest in this deck up until a day or so ago. I have also been on the fence about Archangel Avacyn  Flip for the worry she will kill my tokens if i'm being pressured. I want to playtest with both and see how it works out.

@Eilel I do like Armorcraft Judge but i'm not sure how well it would be main deck. Side deck probably for the longer games though.

Hi there! I think your deck is similar to mine, except I run Tamiyo instead of Gideon. I can't say she's better, but she's very worth a try for all the card draw she gets youu.

The Ultimate Tamiyo Deck

I also can't say my deck is better either, I'm also trying to develop it, and you seem to have a fine list.

Things I suggest you try: Baral's Expertise - lets you remove the enemy and drop your planeswalker at the same time. Archangel Avacyn  Flip. Oath of Nissa.
Things I like in your list: Oviya, Stasis Snare, Heart of Kiran, Cryptolith Rites.
Things I don't care for in your list: Solemn Recruit, Torrential Gearhulk. BUT: I'm not sure what creatures would be better choices.

I added Durable Handicraft & Selfless Spirit, changed up the lands. The mana still feels like it is not enough though. I am also still on the fence with Archangel Avacyn  Flip, in fear she would wipe my guys as well. Also considering another Second Harvest. But not sure that is smart considering what other 4 costs I have.

So far I think they biggest problem you're gonna have is board wipes. If you can keep the army out they'll do work but if you get threatening we just need a wrath effect.

indestructible anti-wipe - Avacyn, Angel of Hope, Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Eldrazi Monument, Dauntless Escort, Selfless Spirit

recursion anti-wipe - Sheoldred, Whispering One, Phyrexian Reclamation

tricksy little hobbitses anti-wipe - Ghostway, Eerie Interlude, Heroic Intervention, Ready, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed, Cauldron of Souls

walkers to include - Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Liliana Vess, Jace, Unraveler of Secrets, Ajani Steadfast

things that I think are just good - Avenger of Zendikar, Mycoloth, Rishkar, Peema Renegade, Winding Constrictor, Oath of Ajani, Primeval Protector

Saskia shares this problem of board-wipes fizzling me out. In her list I run a mix of 10ish recursion/indestructible and it feels like the sweet spot for it. I'd recommend about the same.

Cards that I feel are a must are:

Ready - I feel like this card as super blow-out potential like Boros Charm does in my list. Has the added benefit of fusing for lifelink and deathtouch too!

Ajani Steadfast - if you only add one walker make it this guy. devistating ulty with Deepglow Skate, has a universal counter pump, or can make 1 creature super threatening with his +1

Liliana Vess - she's just super solid here. devastating if you get her out with Deepglow Skate, tutors, and has some hand hate for the LOLOLOLs

Jace, Unraveler of Secrets - same as lili. devistating with the skate but boasts some bounce protection and a scry/draw.

Rishkar, Peema Renegade - gives some serious synergy with your outlast peeps as well as providing some serious ramp

Winding Constrictor - literally made for the deck. comes out just after commander 2016 release? suspicious....

Oath of Ajani - see above, MADE FOR THE DECK

If you want to play at the FNM or higher level and your store is halfway competitive, you need the better cards. In standard that means cards like Archangel Avacyn  Flip, Liliana, the Last Hope, and Gideon, Ally of Zendikar are required to win. A lot of seasoned players have studied the metagame and what is good in the various color combinations. Like for upcoming AER Standard, if I see a Wandering Fumarole Turn 1, my first thought is that they're playing Saheeli Twin, based on the mana that they would continue to play, I can predict what their deck does at what turns. Playing conpetitively and at least going even takes a lot of effort and study.

Conversely, if that is too much work, find a casual playgroup and just play decks to have fun. You don't need to worry about metagames aside from your little group and often times that is a lot more fun for beginning players. I personally spend a lot of time watching the Standard meta-game and I am constantly pairing cards together in my mind to see what works to be able to better predict games. The more information I get, the better my deck becomes and the more I win at FNM. I regularly play at one of the biggest shops in Ohio and I can usually top 4 pretty consistently by doing this and buying the better cards.

I like the deck, but I think you are a bit low on the lands. I would suggest 24 lands in this deck since it is lacking card draw except for Tireless Tracker. Also, Heron's Grace Champion is a clutch card, but I don't think it is clutch enough for a 4 of in the deck.

A card that is extremely strong in a humans deck would be Repel the Abominable. It gives your creatures protection while killing their creatures in blocks or attacks. Another suggestion would be Archangel Avacyn  Flip is an incredibly strong card in this deck giving you swinging power and indestructible in body form if you have the money for it, if not see previous suggestion.
