Legendary Artifact — Vehicle
Whenever Weatherlight deals combat damage to a player, look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal a historic card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order. (Artifacts, legendaries, and Sagas are historic.)

Anyways... Based on Eutropia the Twice-Favored
Augury Bowls of Nylea and Thassa
Legendary Creature - Equipment
Equipped creature has +0/+1 and "Whenever an enchantment enters the battlefield under your control, scry 2."
If the equipped creature would die, you may reveal a card from your hand and the top of your library, if they are both enchantments, exile that creature instead. Transform Augury Bowls of Nylea and Thassa.
Eutropia, Seer of Trees and the Sea ()
At the beginning of your upkeep, name a card. Reveal the top card of your library, a card with the chosen name is revealed this way, you may put it into your hand.
Whenever an Island enters the battlefield under your control, you may reveal an enchantment from your hand, if you do, target creature gains flying until end of turn.
Whenever a Forest enters the battlefield under your control, you may reveal an enchantment from your hand, if you do, put a +1/+1 counter on target creature.
I'd like to see another weird equipment. Here, bowls are being equipped, so something in that vein of unconventional equipment.
I'd like it at common, please!

The short of it is that Weatherlight and other vehicles are only creatures when their Crew ability is used, and they can only be Crewed when on the battlefield, as permanents. On the stack, they do not have the creature type and thus are not creature spells (the same applies to all other zones; they are not creature cards).

Vehicles are not creature spells so you would draw a card off of Whirlwind of Thought. In order for a spell to be a creature spell, the spell has to have creature as a characteristic. Since vehicles such as Weatherlight do not have creature on their type line, they are not creature spells.
I've included some of the rules I used as reference during my research to answer your question as completely as possible.
601.2a To propose the casting of a spell, a player first moves that card (or that copy of a card) from where it is to the stack. It becomes the topmost object on the stack. It has all the characteristics of the card (or the copy of a card) associated with it, and that player becomes its controller. The spell remains on the stack until it’s countered, it resolves, or an effect moves it elsewhere.
109.3. An object’s characteristics are name, mana cost, color, color indicator, card type, subtype, supertype, rules text, abilities, power, toughness, loyalty, hand modifier, and life modifier. Objects can have some or all of these characteristics. Any other information about an object isn’t a characteristic. For example, characteristics don’t include whether a permanent is tapped, a spell’s target, an object’s owner or controller, what an Aura enchants, and so on.
205.2a The card types are artifact, conspiracy, creature, enchantment, instant, land, phenomenon, plane, planeswalker, scheme, sorcery, tribal, and vanguard. See section 3, “Card Types.”
205.2b Some objects have more than one card type (for example, an artifact creature). Such objects satisfy the criteria for any effect that applies to any of their card types.
208.3. A noncreature permanent has no power or toughness, even if it’s a card with a power and toughness printed on it (such as a Vehicle). A noncreature object not on the battlefield has power or toughness only if it has a power and toughness printed on it.

Sonoma enough but is the Weatherlight a creature spell. Like say in the case of Whirlwind of Thought would I draw a card or not? I know it doesn't etb as a creature but I think it's still a creature spell

The only change I’d make: a legendary vehicle can be your commander (maybe that’s only the Weatherlight but I really want it as my commander :D)

Hi Omniscience_is_life, definitely great cards and solid suggestions. I did in fact run both Lightning Greaves & Aurelia, the Warleader in here previously but ended up subbing them out. The greaves grants shroud which means it's a non-bo with all of the other equipment for Akiri - I suppose it could be useful to slap on other creatures here but I want to keep the equipment focus on Akiri. Hexproof is key, hence why I'm running all of the protection swords, indestructibility & straight up hexproof gear. As for Aurelia, she felt clunky and win-more. I've kept Aggravated Assault in here for the good 'ol Sword of Feast and Famine combo. Weatherlight is a really neat card but it's the wrong fit in here as I don't have much of a 'crew' per se. The card advantage is nice, but also too conditional.

To be honest, some of the members of the Weatherlight Are very good cards. I like your “51%” approach, way to many flavorful decks are basically unplayable
