Time of Need will help you get your Arcades in your hand. I'm thinking I'll probably run 2x of each because I don't want dead Legendaries. I think because of the Legendary thing and because of his CMC, I'm going to run 4x Assault Formation in addition to 2xArcades. I think, with my experience playing my G/B Defenders deck Toughness Roughness, I'll want at least 6x wincons. Not getting an Assault Formation is really bad! You might consider Muddle the Mixture over Remand. I'm really psyched to play Drift of Phantasms as well - a 0/5 Flyer with a tutor option sound just fantastic in a deck such as this. I'd drop Fog Bank because it effectively can't swing. You could replace it with Guard Gomazoa if you like, though I think the 3CMC slot is better filled with Drift. I like Axebane Guardian quite a bit, though it is a bit of a target for removal. It will help with your mana fixing to get Aracades down. I really enjoy running a Beast Within in my Defender builds because almost all my Defenders are usually at least 0/4, which greatly negates any potential threat giving an opponent a 3/3 might normally create. (funny stuff, IMHO). It's broad spectrum applications are super useful. I'm also going to try out Sylvan Caryatid to help manafix. Since it isn't a big defender, I'm guessing I won't mind too much that Shroud will prevent me from being able to swing with it with the Formation. I'm also going to run a full set of Overgrown Battlement, but more for ramping up to a potential Colossus of Akros than anything. I may end up deciding I'd rather fill that slot with something else. I'd suggest dropping Jaddi Offshoot in favor of a full set of Perimeter Captain.

Perhaps there is something better than your 3x Equipments as they don't trigger Heroic abilities. I'd use those 3 slots for some sort of removal - off the top of my head and aside from the desirable/obvious/expensive Path to Exile - Condemn, Oppressive Rays, Journey to Nowhere, Oblivion Ring, Cast Out, Seal Away, Chained to the Rocks(requires a Mountain), Banishing Light, Celestial Flare.

Maybe Harvest Season has a place here? Might also consider Beast Within for removal, as well as 4xNaturalize in the sideboard. Pithing Needle might be useful, too. If you get enough lands down, Howl of the Night Pack might be cool. 1xLiege of the Tangle could be a fun wincon as well. I've been trying to build a green lands deck for a while, but they never seem to have enough speed/defense to get to the whomping wincons. You could look at one of my attempts if you like: Wooden Throne or Sylvan Harvest.

Second everything iischris wrote. That's sound advice.

Probably should have something like Naturalize in the sideboard. Also, Beast Within is pretty useful for it's broad spectrum. I'm a big fan of Heroic Intervention when budget allows. 1xBojuka Bog can be clutch. 1xScavenger Grounds is better if the budget allows. 1xMortuary Mire might worth considering as well.

Your wisdom and generosity are unfathomable, SenseiRamen. I've made that additions with a joy-filled heart. Many thanks!

Aqueous Form, perhaps?
Also 1xHalimar Depths? Clearly, some better lands would be a huge help here, though I'm not your budget wants to shell out for them. I think for the very low AVG CMC here, you could probably be fine with as few as 19 lands - perhaps something like Terramorphic Expanse or Evolving Wilds might be a good idea as well to help thin and stabilize your mana base.
You might also consider Metalcraft spells...

I'd drop 2x Killing Wave, as it's best later in the game when you might not want to lose life to keep a big wincon creature on the battlefield.

Some artifacts that might help:
With so many artifacts, I'd think running 1xBuried Ruin would be beneficial.
up to 4xGhost Quarter - once you get 7 lands, you can sac one and target one of your own lands to trigger your Outcast.

Brave the Elements is pretty darn useful in mono-white creature heavy decks, and I'd imagine it could be crucial in protecting your Sovereign when it comes time to win.
Consider Tezzeret's Gambit for draw card and just pay with Phyrexian Mana - you gain so much life, losing 2 won't really hurt at all.
Sideboard Leyline of Sanctity.
Sideboard Celestial Flare against indestructible/hexproof
