Kefnet the Mindful could work great with Tishana

Hey there, I really like the deck and may bring it into gameday! The thing I find strange is the fact that you use 23 lands when your CMC is extremely low. I think lowering the lands to 18 and putting in another Favorable Winds, Siren Stormtamer, Storm Fleet Aerialist , Skyship Plunderer or Nimble Obstructionist , may help a lot more. Also, since the majority of the creatures you have in this deck are pirates, maybe Lookout's Dispersal would help a small bit. Not only this, I can also see you're running on a fairly tight budget, Kefnet the Mindful is quite cheap right now at $2, you could pick up one or two copies of those. As for sideboard cards, I think that a few Negate's and Dispel's may do the trick along with Spell Pierce, Chart a Course , Dreamcaller Siren, dive down and Perilous Voyage .

Thanks for the feedback-- I'm building just with cards that I own and have pulled from boosters. I noticed that I actually do have 2 copies of Scaled Behemoth, and so Accomplished Automaton has been removed in its favor. I also replaced Ancient Brontodon with another Greater Sandwurm. I do want to keep the Nissa's Encouragement along with the brambleweft and Nissa herself, because I believe that the sorcery there can help me keep my hand at 7 in case of Kefnet the Mindful being out, as well as being able to return Nissa from the graveyard to my hand. Brambleweft Behemoth is present in one copy simply because Nissa's Encouragement searches for it, and I believe the sup-optimal-ness of the card is made up for by the fact that it's a 6/6 that I have two searches for and can also return from the graveyard.

I'll also suggest Kefnet the Mindful it seems like a solid end game finisher. I think you misunderstood. I think Negate is fine, I think Censor has the potential to be worse than Spell Pierce in the inevitable counter war that occurs when the second Approach is being cast with 5-6 extra mana up.

I Agree on the Field of Ruin, yet I would play more than one, because Ixalan's literally filled with non-basic lands. You will want to get rid of Itlimoc, Cradle of the Sun  Flip or Lost Vale  Flip ASAP, since they can be game determining.

Also I do not really see the value of Kefnet the Mindful in here, since you most likely never have 7 or more cards in your hand (low curve, cheap spells). Thus he is not very useful and using kefnet only for the card draw is too expensive. (even an Overflowing Insight is more mana efficient. I would run a fourth copy of Hostage Taker and maybe one to two River's Rebuke to seal your games. It is a solid win condition.

If you need more card draw besides Opt and Chart A Course, maybe Pirate's Prize is a viable option.

Kefnet the Mindful. I have always known that it is nearly umplayable, but since i found a Kefnet's Invocation at AKH prerelease i tried to build around it. The only decent deck based on the ibis god i found (not mine) is Kefnet the Modernful.

Reading your discussion about Skaab Ruinator i came up with the idea of it being a possible finisher/must answer threat in a Hatebirds build. The reasons are simple: the main colour of Hatebirds is blue as for the Skaab, so you don't have to splash; the Skaab flies and is fairly cheap (if you can afford the graveyard clause) and; Hatebears play Smuggler's Copter, which can loot creatures to fuel the Skaab; the whole point of Hatebirds is to play cheap, Flying creatures which can pressure your opponent from the skies and sacrifice themselves to counter your opponent's spells. Now, this is just an idea and i don't know if that deck can dump enough creatures in the GY consistently, but i still wanted to help.

Kefnet the Mindful didn't do too well in my build tbh. Even as a mana dump I didn't have enough abusable lands to capitalize on and never felt like a good play to use it. In landfall builds it's a power piece for sure though!

I can't find the space for Psychosis Crawler, been trying for awhile, but it goes into an important cmc slot and doesn't do a ton on its own.

So as your description describes, the core of the deck is based around Kefnet the Mindful, but youre only running one copy of him?
