A couple more inquiries about your thoughts on certain cards: Tezzeret's Gambit , Deploy the Gatewatch , Rhystic Study / Mystic Remora , Mirari's Wake and other mana doublers?

Captain Sisay, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice, Maelstrom Archangel, Doubling Season

Can't see any real use for Chandra, Fire of Kaladesh  Flip, Steam Augury, Tibalt, the Fiend-Blooded (since you dont have Doubling Season he's way too slow), Mechanized Production and Deploy the Gatewatch. The last card won't work in this deck.. I had the exact same deck idea only with 25 walkers and even then it didn't work all the time.

SirFowler on MagicalHacker - List of All Free Value Cards

I'm not sure why you're limiting the definition of free value tbh. The title of the list is 'all' free value spells, yet you are only limiting it to permanents that only interact with other permanents. Doing so lowers the expectations of those who come here to see cards that give you free stuff when there are many more cards that give you free value. All cards with cascade for example, such as Maelstrom Wanderer, Bloodbraid Elf, and/or Etherium-Horn Sorcerer. Not to mention instants/sorceries with rebound such as Recurring Insight. And what about instants/sorceries that put permanents into play like Collected Company or Deploy the Gatewatch. Maybe you should change the title to say free value permanents so people aren't confused. You can do what you want, but it's just a suggestion.

Deploy the Gatewatch as a 1-or-2-of might be fun.

Have you considered using either of the Oaths in your colors? Oath of Gideon in particular looks good with the token substrategy and the lasting boost seems sweet.

Maybe a 1-of Liliana, the Last Hope?

Nice balance in the mana base. Well done.

Have you tested with Genesis Wave as a complement to Deploy the Gatewatch?

Comeuppance and Djeru, With Eyes Open might be useful for protecting your super-friends.

Happy brewing!

Update: went to my LGS and went 2-2 at their Legacy event...HUZZAH!

Match 1. 1-2 Mono-Black Reanimator ft. Griselbrand--Disrupted and outpaced game 1, couldn't find the graveyard hate after. Overall, didn't feel like an unbalanced matchup.

Match 2. 2-0 Mono-Blue Storm--Probably the worst matchup, but game 1 went similar to the first match, and in game 2 they wiffed after Time Spiraling (twice). Should have lost, BUT DIDN'T!

Match 3. 1-2 U/W Control ft. Helm of Obedience--Hadn't seen it before, so didn't know to Abrupt Decay the Rest in Peace. Promptly lost 2 turns later. Game 2 I was able to Jester's Cap the Helm, a one-of Gideon Jura, and a Celestial Colonnade...we went so long he milled himself ._. Game 3, after time of the round was called, he got the Helm combo on turn 5. Just didn't draw anything to help and make it to a draw, should've mulliganed.

Match 4. 2-0 Jeskai Chandras(?)--Game 1 had Cavern of Souls and was able to keep them off of Splinter Twin + Deceiver Exarch with hand disruption. Game 2 Deploy the Gatewatch happened, but their one creature was Decayed on endstep and I was able to swing in.

Had a good time, might just make a Legacy-board for next time.
