Enchantment — Aura
When Bestial Fury enters the battlefield, draw a card at the beginning of the next turn's upkeep.
Whenever enchanted creature becomes blocked, it gets +4/+0 and gains trample until end of turn.

I personally don't like too many one an done effects. Rakdos colors have a lot of trouble with recursion of enchantments and non permanents without warping the deck to support them so I have a few cuts to suggest.
Piranha Marsh hurts you with that tapped land than it will your opponent's one life.
Sands of Time is cute, but since mana burn isn't part of the game any more it might no do very much. Its still probably fine if you only want to hit creatures.
Sudden Impact Is probably not good enough unless your meta is full of guys that draw their whole deck and combo off. Most of those decks win at instant speed anyway so it still doesn't really help. Supernatural Stamina and Undying Evil are equally small without some recursion effect. In a pinch you can add Charmbreaker Devils, Isochron Scepter, or Toshiro Umezawa. If you want to choose who lives and who dies while politiking on a bigger level try Cauldron of Souls.
Some of your enchantments don't do much either Bestial Fury doesn't stop the creature from hitting you while Errantry and Unnatural Hunger pretty much guarantees whatever creature you enchant will only hit you.
There is one more problem I noticed, but it might just be a matter of deckbuilding philosophy. What's your win-con? How do you foresee this deck finishing the game?

The chump block 1/1 is always a pain in the ass, I feel your pain on that. There are ways around it however. First and foremost there is always flying. To fit with the vehicle theme Sky Skiff could give you another vehicle option that is harder to block. Additionally Pia Nalaar, although she doesn't benefit from Depala, Pilot Exemplar gives you a flier that can poke while also giving you a solid 3 worth of crew cost including the thopter. On the instant/sorcery Mighty Leap comes to mind as a decent utility card, or even Gryff's Boon as an enchantment. Board wipes seem lazy in this deck. Yes your vehicles wont die but everything else will and then you have to build up a field to crew again. Its a risk that may not be worth taking. If any board wipe Fumigate, which you use, or Phyrexian Rebirth seem like the only viable options. Fumigate being a reset and Phyrexian Rebirth putting you ahead if you ever come to the point where you need to wipe the board. Side note, Phyrexian Rebirth used against a token deck is absolutely brutal. Your final option is trample, but this is tricky as you can't use green. Aggression is a decent option but its nature makes it a bit annoying. The budget breaker is Akroma's Memorial. Bestial Fury could work but is unreliable. Built to Smash for a quick swing Rush of Adrenaline also works. Gruul War Plow is a bit iffy. Messenger's Speed I think that kinda sums it up. This deck has already come a long way and I'm so excited that vehicles are making their way into commander. Good luck hope this helped a bit.

I spent a lot of time on my own deck Skycaptain Kari Zev Captain of the Sky! (which actually has a decent amount of tech I've been discovered) and I think you're really missing out by not upgrading your dragons/phoenix to possible wincons. You can take out these whatever dragons for Hellkite Igniter, Hellkite Tyrant, Hoarding Dragon, and Tyrant's Familiar.
If you still wanted auras you can run Bestial Fury to basically make her unblockable or they suicide that replaces itself. Latulla's Orders is cute but auras in general depend on the local meta's ratio of wipe and spot removal. More than enough Gauntlet effects to consider an always threatening Fiery Mantle.
You'll probably get more plays out of Five-Alarm Fire than Surge.

It might be shameless self promotion but I've actually gathered a decent amount of tech for my own Kari Zev deck that you might be able to use such as Invasion Plans over Goblin War Drums with an Infiltration Lens or Bestial Fury. I think that Kari would be clever flavorwise. I especially like the interaction with Hero's Blade equipping to Ragavan or using him in her Invasion Plans to draw the attention all the entire defending player's board. Kari can even "sell" Ragavan at the Trading Post for some solid profits considering its all scam. Sadly theres no real way Culling Dais can be spun that isn't at least a little sad. Skycaptain Kari Zev Captain of the Sky!

After trying a lot of very different brews for Kari I've found one that's always on theme and always a good inclusion.

Hey I'm currently building my own swiftspear pauper edh and noticed something very unusual with your deck...
How come you do not run any fetchlands to help thin out your deck? You could easily add Evolving Wilds, Forgotten Cave, Smoldering Crater, Terramorphic Expanse to help increase your threshold quicker and thin your deck of excess lands. this color has little card draw in pauper (as I assume you know).
Bestial Fury is something I am considering running. seems good, haha.
Burning Inquiry is another very brutal card for your opponent. We just need more cards, but making them discard at random seems like it can help slow their game a bit.
No data for this card yet.
