3 primary paths to victory -

1) Mindslaver lock, set up through either Yomiji, Who Bars the Way or Mistveil Plains/Sisay.
2) Yosei Lock through Miren and either Genesis, Mistveil Plains/Sisay, or Hua Tuo.
3) Legendary beatdown. Usually in the form of Akroma (loyal retainers) or Asmira (Saffi/Retainers), or KALDRA (BITCH!).

This is my slightly-less-broken-than-Azami deck, that I use as my primary.

Kaldra is awesome. Are the Hondens too little bang for too high a cost? The green and white ones are a little underwhelming, but having both in play is reasonably solid.

As always, Krosan Tusker is one of my favorite utility creatures for EDH green decks.

Cards I'm surprised to not see (or would be in my "Almost/Maybe" pile with the deck):
Divining Top
Sylvan Library
Regrowth
Multani, Maro Sorcerer
Noble Heirarch / Sakura Tribe Elder / Yavimaya Elder
Stonecloaker
Dauntless Escort

It took me a second look, but I found the five lands that were hiding. Especially with only 35 lands, I'm surprised to not see Selesnya Sanctuary.

The list looks like a ton of fun. I really like the feel of the deck, with a million cool legends running around. Unfortunately, most of the cards I recommended aren't legends, but Multani should be awesome.

Noble Heirarch can't be used because of the island symbol.

But some good points were made, aka yavimaya elder. He's awsome.

Other cards I would recommend:

Day of destiny
Reveillark
Kataki war's wage

Reveillark is good that it can rinse and reuse witness, saffis, and a lot of other creatures.

I have a Sisay deck and win most of my games by tutoring for Gaea's Cradle, Hokori, then Gaddock Teeg when they get up to 4 mana. It makes this deck really powerful, and if you add in more early acceleration you can lock people out pretty early. If you have a broken deck and want to keep this on the "fun" side, I can see if you don't want to play Hokori, but man is he powerful.

Kamahl + Crovax is brutal; able to wipe out lands at an alarming rate.

I don't know if you'd want to incorporate that combo though. If not, both legends are still excellent standalone cards.

I just discovered that you do not run: predator, flagship.

Tutorable removal is nice even if it is really expensive.

He doesn't like the LD element of it, and I can't blame him. But Kamahl is sick with both Crovax and Myojin of Cleansing Fire.

If he ran this card, his general would never make it to tap in our playgroup. I'm certain of it.

Yeah, our group has a pretty strict "Don't fuck with lands" policy. We do run LftL/Waste/Strip in some decks, but no one runs Crucible, and no one runs Armageddon effects. Shit like that makes it totally un-fun to play, and that's the point of EDH, in our eyes.

You should probably run High Market as well. It gives you another way to setup Yosei lock, and another way to save your creatures from RFG removal so that you can get them back.

On that note, it's probably worth running Restock.
