Amonkhet brought a lot of great cards to RW Humans, Honored Crop-Captain being one of them. I've been playing the deck for a few months now and definitely have some suggestions.
4x Always Watching is simply a great anthem with fantastic synergy with Humans that can be exerted.4x Glory-Bound Initiate combos well with Always Watching so that you can swing with a 5/5 Lifelink turn after turn.
Replace Village Messenger Flip with Town Gossipmonger Flip, I recently made this switch and it's brought me more success than you may think. Gossipmongers can also be flipped in response to blocks if you have an Always Watching out.
Metallic Mimics don't do well when played on curve, and do a worse job of beefing your board state than Always Watching as they don't provide any bonus to previously played humans with the exception of the Lieutenants.
Devoted Crop-Mate as a 2-of works wonders, bringing back 85% of your creatures and potentially providing a pseudo combat trick if you can bring back a Lieutenant.
As far as removal is concerned, I've found Declaration in Stone to be the best for MOST creatures, as the only naturally hasty threat is Glorybringer. For all others, Repel the Abominable will help you in every matchup except the mirror. Use Fragmentize on vehicles and keep at least 3x Cast Out in the sideboard for Planeswalkers and even Liliana's Mastery

Your game plan sounds interesting. I don't think the deck needs to run a full playset of Kari Zev's Expertise, but perhaps that's specific to your play group. Also i don't think that Kari Zev, Skyship Raider adds much to the deck. I'd probably swap her out for two more Honored Crop-Captain. Also on the theme of exert creatures, Gust Walker is not to be underestimated, a lot of decks have trouble dealing with a flyer in the early game. Overall though I like the idea, so good luck with it.

Man I've got a big ol' hardon for Lone Rider Flip. It That Rides as One Flip is metal as fuck, and it's a BEAST. I've had the most success with a turn 2 Glory-Bound Initiate (he and Honored Crop-Captain are main the reasons to add imo) attacking exerted turn 3 after playing the Rider. He's awesome presence turn 3 if he flips so that's really sweet. Certainly, Lathnu Hellion is better than the Rider in a vacuum, but as a 2-of I've found Lone Rider Flip to be just awesome. I'll goldfish a bit to see if a swap in that 2-of slot seems worth it.

I was REALLY excited to test this deck! It's my colors and it's my style. In testing it I feel like there are a few holes. It doesn't have a nice curve to start with. You go from essentially 2 drops to 5 or 7 drops really (as far as the draws went for the 10 games I tested with). It feels like Naya Bears but very little synergy. I was excited for Khenra Charioteer but in testing I found myself not wanting to cast it most of the time due to wanting to get human synergies with all of my bears or to get Rhonas the Indomitable down. Turns 3-5 when I could cast it I would want to vomit all of my humans instead. I'd look into Bloodlust Inciter if your going to have red. It can get bigger with Thalia's Lieutenant and can give you a huge boost turn 3 or 4 which feels like where this deck wants to be. It also has a fun synergy with Honored Crop-Captain as she can come down and pump your team on the same turn. I absolutely LOVE Sigarda, Heron's Grace and would put 3 of her in as a top end. That just hoses your opponents if they've been waiting to use removal instead is favor of developing their board state for defense. She also dodges 2 of the most commonly used removal in the format Fatal Push and Grasp of Darkness. This deck REALLY feels like it wants a 1 drop on turn 1 and to see an Always Watching so i'd increase both of those numbers to 4 and 8 with the Blootlust Inciters. Sorry for the Novel but I REALLY like this deck and feel it could be GREAT with a few tweaks! Good Luck and let me know how you do at game day!

You might consider: Honored Crop-Captain, Kessig Malcontents in the sideboard to answer stuff like enchantment prison, and Gather the Townsfolk if you want to increase the utility of cards like Honor of the Pure by putting more bodies on the 'field
Also Lightning Helix and Path to Exile could help the removal suite, but it looks like you're trying to focus more on your own creatures than on getting rid of the enemy's, so maybe they don't fit as well here.

I've being testing the deck at my local store, and i've get a list that makes me satisfied, including Honored Crop-Captain, has gotten the deck a lot better, actually i'm thinking if shave a 3-drop for add another 2-drop, Gust Walker is a candidate for include.
