If you're looking to make this decent in Modern you'll have to bring the cmc down a little bit. unfortunately, Raksha Golden Cub is too slow for modern, seeing as you won't be able to get its effect before turn 8 at the earliest. Here are my recommendations -


Raksha Golden Cub - too expensive

Spirit of the Hearth - could be a sideboard card, still probably too expensive

Bond of Discipline - other cheaper options

Godsend - not useful without raksha

Ancestral Blade - not useful without raksha

Pride Guardian - Defender really goes against your plan here, and I feel like the only reason it's in the deck is because of the life gain

Cards to add:

Leonin Vanguard - gains life every turn for your pridemate, good if you have multiple creatures

Path to Exile - a modern removal staple

Brimaz is already in your maybe board, he's a monster

Sacred Cat - this coooould be an option, but it's pretty weak.

Leonin Arbiter - pairs nicely with path, slows many decks down.

Metallic Mimic - does this count or is this cheating?

Adaptive Automaton - same as above

I've yet to find a solid replacement for Shalai, Voice of Plenty . There are cards that protect your permanents and cards that protect you but generally not both. Leyline of Sanctity gives you hexproof, but not your stuff. Same with Spirit of the Hearth . Ivory Mask is pseudo-shroud. True Believer is cheaper, both are less useful than hexproof. Along those lines Amulet of Safekeeping doesn't give hexproof, but it'll probably keep you from being targeted arbitrarily in multiplayer from its tax, and it also slightly debuffs tokens. Didn't work well for me when I tried it but it was a neat idea. Maybe could be sideboarded in against people who like to spawn tons of 1/1 ankle-biters? idk

Consider Avacyn, Angel of Hope to defend your permanents. It's not hexproof, but destruction is the most common type of removal and she prevents that.

With Spirit of the Hearth (and any other spell or permanent) "you" refers to its controller, not necessarily its owner.

Sorry if Leyline of Sanctity it is a bit expensive its the first thing that comes to mind. Other cards that may work in its place might be Aegis of the Gods, Orbs of Warding, Witchbane Orb (one of which I have and has proved useful in occasion, especially in edh), and Spirit of the Hearth. unfortunately these only give you hex-proof so non targeted pings will still hit you. I am still looking for a good way of preventing this but I hope these help for now.
