The cards you really want to draw every game needs to have 3-4 X of in the deck. Having only 1 x of means you can play 4-5 games without drawing it once.
Cards I would consider taking out of the deck;

just a quick few equipment off the top of my head i can think of you might like Konda's Banner just for giving all your cats +2 +2 more on top of the boost from raksha. Sword of Vengeance for more sweet keywords. Masterwork of Ingenuity to copy any other equipments. Darksteel Plate for indestructible. Godsend because that equipment is freaking amazing. Argentum Armor is great even if it costs a bit to get out and equip and Batterskull because obvious reasons. i don't know what your budget would be but you could also throw in Stonehewer Giant for more equipment tutoring. if you can you can spring on some great card advantage in white being Land Tax + Scroll Rack which can come out to paying 1 to draw 3 cards a turn. sweet deck though. get a +1 from me!

I am such a fan of Shu Yun, and I like what you have going here. I do have a few card suggestions from what I play in my deck Beware The Monk!. My deck is not the average Shu Yun, the Silent Tempest deck in that I am attempting to find that creature/spell balance, while making sure that if Shu is removed too many times my creatures will (hopefully) allow me to get through late game for the win. In my first games he was very much a glass canon.
On to the CARDS! I'm a huge fan of Rebound effects with Shu, I wish there were more; Artful Maneuver is one of my favorites, I see you have the Distortion Strike. A few other cards that are enjoyable in this type of build are Titan's Strength, Leap, and one of my personal favorites Kusari-Gama. I think the Gama could potentially take your Sword of Vengeance's 6 slot since you are not happy with it.

RijtBart: First off, I love your Shu Yun deck.
Runechanter's Pike is on my test list. Hero's Blade will probably be the card I drop for it, too, but it might be Sword of Vengeance because Hero's Blade is free to equip in the vast majority of cases I've had it hit the board. Sword's keyword soup has been great, but at six mana total to get make it useful, there's been a few times that it's sat useless because that mana was better spent on spells.
I think you're right on the counterspell front. A lot of times things like Hindering Light and Turn Aside end up being dead draws. Proactive protection and things that increase damage dealt are probably better overall. To that end, Shimmering Wings and Mark of Fury are going to get tested for sure.

Spirit of the Hearth is an awesome cat that comes with a pretty relevant ability in EDH.
Oreskos Explorer helps pull lands from your library, plus you can grab nonbasic Plains.
Ajani's Pridemate is a solid 2-drop that synergises with all of your lifegain.
Sunspear Shikari is another small powerhouse, but it depends on if you feel like you can consistently equip it.
Leonin Skyhunter is again a solid 2-drop, but double white and lack of other abilities might make it unfit.
Sigarda's Aid is good if you want to push more towards an equipment theme.
Ajani's Sunstriker is another cheap cat with synergy.
Swiftfoot Boots is an equipment I definitely recommend. Speed and protection are always useful.
Loxodon Warhammer is another solid equipment.
Enlightened Ascetic is a cat with a very relevant enters-the-battlefield ability.
Kemba's Skyguard is another cool cat.
Sword of Vengeance is the cheapest one out of the Sword of X and Y cycle. (Yes, it's technically not a part of the cycle, but it's still 70% as strong as one).
