They are, but I opted just to use the two 0 drop creatures. Even if you spend one of them to get Engine, you still have another that you can pull after grabbing Flute to get Basalt Monolith, which lets you grab Hope of Ghirapur and still have a mana left over.

So what I'm saying is: Only two 0 drops are necessary, the others are "dead" cards in relation to the other card slots. I could run Shield Sphere over Memnite, though.

I'm not going to inundate you with a list of all tutors, I'm just going to pick what I feel are the best ones in green and white:

Creature tutors in no particular order:

Green Sun's Zenith is perfect because it's any green creature in your deck for only one extra mana. This can be Mirri, Qasali Pridemage, or even just a Dryad Arbor to ramp if you need it.

Eladamri's Call. Instant speed, unconditional (not restricted to finding a green creature, I mean), and puts it straight into hand. Very solid.

Worldly Tutor. Card disadvantage, but it finds any color of creature for only one mana at instant speed.

Chord of Calling is one of the best tutors green has to offer. Instant speed surprise factor is never to be discounted considering it's any creature in your library at any time as if they all had flash (assuming you have the mana/creatures to cast it). Instant speed Alms Collector when someone casts a Prime Speaker Zegana or something is huge.

Birthing Pod is a great, consistent way to find your way up through the ranks to specific cards. Cards like Solemn Simulacrum are great to sacrifice, while cards like Reveillark, Karmic Guide, etc., can turn the sacrifice into a positive card advantage (rather than neutral) every time.

Survival of the Fittest is expensive for a reason. Easily one of the most broken tutor enablers in the format, especially in white/black when you can discard a high cost creature you can't cast yet, go get Karmic Guide/Reveillark or really any recursive tool. Fauna Shaman is the poor man's version and still works really well.

Pattern of Rebirth and Defense of the Heart. Both of these are incredible if triggered.

Natural Order is probably not the best for your build (tossing a Llanowar Elves for a Craterhoof Behemoth is incredible for 4 mana), but it's an option you should be aware of with other deck builds.

Recruiter of the Guard finds 10 out of 26 creatures in your list. Whether that's worth it or not is up to you.

Equipment tutors:

Steelshaper's Gift, Stoneforge Mystic, Enlightened Tutor, Open the Armory. I find these to be the best of them, though Relic Seeker is probably the cheapest one you're not currently running. Stonehewer Giant is repeatable, which may be something you'll like (I dropped Taj-Nar Swordsmith but kept Stonehewer in my Kemba deck because one is a heavily-mana intensive ability but is also a one-shot effect).
