Defense of the Heart
At the beginning of your upkeep, if an opponent controls three or more creatures, sacrifice Defense of the Heart. If you do, search your library for up to two creature cards and put those creatures into play. Then shuffle your library.

Defense of the Heart Discussion

Thanks BlackWyvern, I like these outside the box ideas. Rhonas's Monument is pretty cool! I really wish it was red creatures though...Still, worth considering. Drumhunter has decent synergy with all the fat dragons, but if I were to add more draw I'd probably throw in a non-conditional spell like Harmonize or something, shrug.

Some possible ideas.
Rhonas's Monument Pump and trample on creature.
Drumhunter Free draws.
Lurking Predators Another way to cheat things in.
Defense of the Heart A more threatening way to cheat things in.
Doubling Season Since you have a lot of token gen, it might be worth sliding this in. Also instants Arlinn to emblem once transformed.

Azusa, Lost but Seeking, Nissa, Vital Force, Tireless Tracker, Defense of the Heart, Dungrove Elder, Skyshroud Claim (the forests it finds come in untapped), Pathbreaker Ibex, Worldly Tutor, Vernal Bloom, Homeward Path, Yavimaya Hollow if I casually think of any others I'll let you know

I've never been super impressed with Defense of the Heart.
Given the more sac-theme of your deck, you might have better results with Pattern of Rebirth?
Would Regal Force be a good option here, given the number of tokens you can produce?

Needs a Natural Order, Worldly Tutor, Blasphemous Act, Sol Ring, Mana Vault, and possibly Lurking Predators. These should probably go in over other non-creatures (to keep the creature count as high as possible, and avoid Ruric's punishment). Also, Lightning Greaves over Swiftfoot Boots.
Another neat combo to fetch with Defense of the Heart and friends is Xenagos, God of Revels and Blightsteel Colossus (both of which could merit slots here on their own). Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger is the best thing to Natural Order for, as well.
Why all of the MLD? I'd cut Wildfire, Destructive Force, and Jokulhaups. While I'm not one of those people who always abhor MLD, it just doesn't seem to fit here, and you could use the slots better? The only one I'd probably keep is Decree of Annihilation, because you can cycle it will a strong board state to secure your victory.
I'm going to punctuate this for emphasis: You. Need. More. Card. Draw. Harmonize, Rishkar's Expertise, et cetera. Wheels don't count, because they are usually massive card disadvantage if you can't out-tempo your opponents with the new cards.
Overall, though, seems like a good deck! Hope this was helpful! :)

- For more artifact hate: By Force, Shattering Spree
- For Defense of the Heart - Forbidden Orchard
- For protection - Conqueror's Flail, Defense Grid
- Worldly Tutor this card is must have in my opinion
- If You will decide to use more wheels, then I would suggest Magus of the Wheel instead of Reforge the Soul
