Dude, I'd be happy to help, but there seems to be some information missing here. Just for future reference, posting by CMC would be helpful.

I guess your general is the "draw a card when you play a legend" guy? I suppose all recommendations based on card quality alone will have to get an asterix, in that case. Still, I'd question the value of: Isao (Got a Stag instead? You are playing against a guy with Imperial Seal, after all!), Glissa, one of the 3 kingdoms legends (I don't know what they do, but they can't all be good, can they?), Bounteous Kirin, Baru, Weatherlight (begging to get disenchanted; at least with Planar Portal your good stuff is still in your deck) and perhaps Predator (Rocket Launcher or Alladin's Ring or something instead?). If you're going to go with Bounteous Kirin, I recommend a Spiritcraft theme (Kodama of the South Tree is my favorite), otherwise I'd rather have a Silklash Spider.

Also consider Nightsoil, Citanul Flute, Elder Pine of Jukai, Loam Dweller, Joyous Respite, Wear Away (maybe instead of Seal), and if you can get it cheap Defense of the Heart.

1 Thawing Glaciers

1 Tranquil Thicket
1 Yavimaya Hollow

29 forests

Now I need to make space for three slots:
Greater Good
Tsabo's Web
Rending Vines
(also, looking for Restock!)

Things that I think I could drop:
Konda's Banner - Most of the time I play this just to draw a card anyway; I don't even bother equipping it. The only time it is a stand-out card is if I resolve a Beacon of Creation, get to untap, and still have a legendary guy in play.
Gaea's Blessing - None of us have mill effects, though I just know that once I take it out, somebody is going to Tunnel Vision me for the win. Any run-ins with that card at the EDH tournaments?
Kodama's Reach - Turns 3-5 its okay, but any time after that and it is seriously underwhelming. But then again my last victory today was largely on the back of the mana produced by an early-game reach.
Isao, Enlightened Bushi - Two damage to a player is underwhelming, and four damage to a creature is easily outclassed

So I leave the topic for discussion.

I have already taken out some of the weaker links:
Shizuko, Isao, Gaea's Blessing, Kodama's Reach, and Konda's Banner

But there are always more slots that I want to add things in with...

The 3 kingdoms guys are all rather useful - One is a 4/4 that pumps my dudes by +1/+1, one is pretty much a 4/3 unblockable, and the other guy can bring creatures from my graveyard to the top of my library. The first two might be a bit weak admittedly.

Glissa is good because she can kill artifacts repeatedly. Funnily enough, I haven't actually drawn her ONCE (except for when I'm about to win) since I built the deck, so I can't really say with empirical evidence whether or not its the case.

Weatherlight is a giant 8 mana tutor. More often than not I use it to search for my win condition, Akroma's Memorial, but its also not uncommon to grab mana creatures or Predator.

Predator has always been highly relevant. Its one of my only sources of direct creature kill for one.

Kirin seems weak, but the lifegain he gives when I do have a spirit to cast (which is quite actually quite often) has always saved my ***.

Guys I am thinking of dropping:
Iwamori - He is awesome and all, and he usually adds Fun to the game when I drop him, but after all he is just a 5/5 trampler. This deck might have plenty of beef already.

Sosuke - Same as above; his abilities have never really come in handy before, he usually ends up being a relatively small dude on the field.
