Namely, Wizards designed the first ability, then went "what's the opposite?" and then put it on the card regardless of if that ability was in the color pie.
Plus, it's my personal opinion that the more expensive a spell is, the more it can diverge from the color pie. To an extent, obviously.

Feed the Swarm is in-pie for black now, as they’ve added enchantment destruction to the list of things that colour is able to do (i guess expect to see more of this effect going forwards).
I agree that Old Gnawbone feels really out of place, and not necessarily something green shouldn’t be able to do, but definitely something no respectable green player wants to be doing for that much mana-investment.

Urabrask the Hidden tapping down opposing creatures like Authority of the Consuls or Blind Obedience is a post-modern-printed white effect on a card with only red pips in the cost. We all know about Feed the Swarm. I think it's a bold statement to say they haven't broken the color pie in years. I personally think Old Gnawbone is horrible as a green card, and only has merit in flavor. They just have gotten better at breaking it without looking broken.

I actually borrowed your decklist and played a game on untap and won. Getting a hunter's prowess to go off and drawing 18 cards is pretty sweet, and the extra combats with karlach was critical.
My thoughts - really need some Haste!
There are tons of options, my top budget friendly options:
Flamekin Village, Hanweir Battlements Meld, Anger, Fires of Yavimaya, Urabrask the Hidden, Dragon Breath...
some other options are:
Rhythm of the Wild, Hammer of Purphoros, Ogre Battledriver, Xenagos, God of Revels, Crashing Drawbridge.... clearly not all of these are needed but sprinking in a few would go a long way.
and have you thought about running Animate Dead?
anyway thanks for sharing your list, i really enjoyed it. cheers and have fun!

Darigaaz Reincarnated is an excellent commander:
If he hits you three times? You die.
Potentially castable on turn 1 with a good draw and the right mana rocks.

You will draw 20 cards and deal all the damage. Once an ability is on the stack, it exists independently of its source, so you will draw all the cards when the abilities resolve.
In addition, sacrificing the creatures is a cost of Goblin Bombardment's ability. This means that by the time your opponent can cast Fiery Cannonade, all of your Humble Defector copies have already been sacrificed. There is no way to respond or interfere with a player paying a cost, unless you can do it before they can activate the ability at all (for example, Urabrask the Hidden to make it so the Defectors enter tapped).

Those Who Lived On
Creature - Human Survivor
At the beginning of your upkeep, put a +1/+1 counter on Those Who Lived On. Then, if it has three or more +1/+1 counters on it, transform it.
A deck may contain any number of cards named Those Who Lived On.
Those Who Survived
Creature - Human Soldier
First strike, vigilance, menace
At the beginning of your upkeep, choose a creature subtype. Create a creature subtype counter of the chosen subtype and put it on Those Who Survived. As long as Those Who Survived has that creature subtype counter on it, it has protection from that subtype.
So when Those Who Lived On gets three +1/+1 counters, making their P/T at 3/5, they transform. The counters stay, but their base stats move from 0/2 to 3/2, making them grow from a 3/5 to a 6/5.
The way the creature subtype counters work is you first select a creature subtype, such as Vampire. You then create a "Vampire Counter" and put it on Those Who Survived. Once this is done, as long as that counter remains, that particular Those Who Survived has protection from Vampires.
Very cumbersome, but I thought it was neat to tell a story of children surviving their village or township being destroyed, growing up, learning how to survive and eventually becoming champions and heroes in their own right.
I am saddened that Tamiyo got Compleated, but a little hopeful that we may see Koth return - although also Compleated.
I think it would be REALLY AWESOME if they took this a step further and Compleated Koth of the Hammer, and he replaced Urabrask the Hidden. I say this because to the best of my knowledge, the last we heard of Koth was that he held the lines so Elspeth could escape, but we don't know what his fate was. We do know, however, that Urabrask was killed.
So, from a story perspective, it would fit beautifully if the Praetors Compleated Koth and replaced Urabrask with him.
Make a Koth Planeswalker who replaced Urabrask.
