Kari Zev, Skyship Raider Discussion

Hey, I like the deck idea.
Just a few suggestions:instead of Turn Against, which costs 5, there are plenty of "gain control until end of turn" options. My favs are Kari Zev's Expertise (although it is less impactful in EDH), Grab the Reins, and Act of Aggression.
Instead of vigilante of justice, i'd add in more ramp/draw in the form of Solemn Simulacrum
Kari Zev, Skyship Raider has synergy with your general (although she is probably more for fun than function)

As far as replacements for Nature's Way, I'd suggest Shock, Authority of the Consuls or Declaration in Stone. You don't have very much hard removal which is really important to have in the current meta.
I really think splashing more red in your deck will make it better overall. Hopefully some of these ideas help. +1 from me

I have not played with Hanweir Garrison yet, but I have played against it more than once, and it's a card that has to be dealt with before it floods the board or merges with Hanweir Battlements. It's very effective now with Kari Zev, Skyship Raider in play, you attack with 5 creatures for the price of only casting 2.

Sorry for taking so long to get to this. Overall, I think the deck is probably a bit slow for what you're trying to do? Are you trying to go with a counters theme? Or are you really wanting to push the legendary theme? I honestly think you could make a better deck by not bothering with all legendaries, which feels kind of janky, but rather just good stuff. My philosophy about life gain in edh is that it is bad haha. It's only worthwhile if you are gaining repeated utility out of it (i.e. using Phyrexian Reclamation or Erebos, God of the Dead). I also believe that signets should be added to just about every edh deck out there. A few suggestions:
Suggestions to add:
Lightning Greaves, Shizo, Death's Storehouse, Rogue's Passage, Conqueror's Flail, Hero of Bladehold, Chrome Mox, Aurelia, the Warleader, Sun Titan, Solemn Simulacrum, Grave Titan, Cultivate, Kodama's Reach, Oracle of Mul Daya, Krosan Grip, Beast Within, Explosive Vegetation, Gruul Signet, Golgari Signet, Selesnya Signet, Sylvan Library, Mana Crypt, Ghostway, Boros Charm, Garruk Wildspeaker, Recruiter of the Guard, Mother of Runes
Suggestions to cut:
Kari Zev, Skyship Raider, Reki, the History of Kamigawa, Thalia's Lancers, Tsabo Tavoc, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, Heroes' Podium, Evolving Wilds, Genesis Wave, Harmonize, Momentous Fall, Soul's Majesty, See the Unwritten
If you decide to go with tokens or counters as a theme, of course the requisite Doubling Season and then a card like Assemble the Legion would be fun. Another route you could take is multiple combats.
If you add more ramp, you might be able to shave a land or two. Do you already have this deck built or is it a work in progress?
Let me know if you want me to explain why I'd cut, add, or replace something.

splashing red would be very benificial, like splashing red for Kari Zev, Skyship Raider and Hanweir Battlements, Odric isnt very strong right now and you could afford to take out the Lone Riders. My friend runs a Naya Human deck with only 3 non-creature spells, and those are just 3 Always Watching. It takes 3rd-1st every tournament we go to and i've personally never beaten it, the only deck you really need to sideboard against is Mardu Vehicles

Love it, but you dont need Goblin Gaveleer without equipment. Instead I offer the slot to the underappreciated Kari Zev, Skyship Raider. With built in evasion and first strike Kari herself is a nightmare for blocking, especially around the turn she comes in on. Ragavan can be sent at a different opponent altogether but is frequently ignored. Typically two triggers per swing.
Alternatively if you want to keep it hard tribal it could also be a Goblin Spymaster. Forces your opponent's entire board to attack. Often at each other due to his first strike.
If you wanted to break away from the tribe a bit (or replace enchantments that you tire of) Hero of Oxid Ridge, Prophetic Flamespeaker, and Purphoros, God of the Forge might increase the stopping power.
