Creature — Elf
When Fierce Empath enters the battlefield, you may search your library for a creature card with converted mana cost 6 or more, reveal it, put it into your hand, then shuffle your library.

What kind of decks are you working on? If you have the resources available, it seems to me like you'd be better served by customizing the tutors to the decks.
Depending on budget and needs, Primal Command, Fierce Empath, or Eladamri's Call work in a creature deck, and the Harbingers and Forerunners and similar cards work for specific tribes. Call the Gatewatch and Enlightened Tutor work for their respective card types.
Unless there are extenuating circumstances, I'm not sure that looking for a one-card-fits-all is the most efficient option.

Raben-schwarz Thanks for the suggestion, and sorry for the three year wait lol, I took out Fierce Empath for Smothering Tithe. I also recently got my hands on Rhystic Study so I will likely be putting it in this deck as I feel it is missing good card draw, possibly instead of Overflowing Insight, or even Planar Bridge. Thoughts?

How often do you use the Giant Growth? This would be my first pick for switching out for more protection. It buffs your creatures, but it won't help when your creatures get Murdered. With only a single Growth, it's also not going to appear reliably, and single-target pumping isn't really what I see this deck doing.
I'm also going to ask about the Life Goes On. Since this deck doesn't have any lifegain focus or interactions, how often does it change the course of a game? Can you point to multiple matches where it directly contributed to a win? Unless it regularly and specifically protects a win or avoids a loss, it's kind of out of place here, especially as a one-off. Lifegain for lifegain's sake usually just ends up diluting the deck and adding filler.
To go into this next thought, the goal for this deck is to ramp into big smashy creatures and attack, right? If that's the case, maybe switch the Beast Whisperer for Fierce Empath or Mwonvuli Beast Tracker and switch of the Regal Force for a second Empath or Tracker or another big scary creature. The Empath and Tracker will get your finishers in hand faster, and once you hit that stage, you want to be attacking, not drawing cards off a 5/5 without evasion.
If you're trying to stay inexpensive, the Heroic Intervention might be a bit much, Blossoming Defense is reasonable but not super cheap, and Ranger's Guile, Mwonvuli Beast Tracker, and Fierce Empath are all pocket change.

I would recommend cutting Fierce Empath. There is nothing for it to fetch.
Maybe Selvala, Heart of the Wilds could be good?

Hey Profet93, thanks for the upvote!
Flying isn't super prevalent in my meta, and I can usually outpace the decks that do have fliers. While earlier iterations of this deck ran a fair bit more of flying interaction, having Whirlwind and the few removal spells in this deck tend to be enough.
Reap is definitely a meta call, most of my playgroup plays black and being able to return my entire graveyard to my hand most of the time is super good.
I ran Skullclamp for a bit and its a bit too slow in this deck. Due to the numerous lords I run as well, my little 1/1's generally aren't little 1/1's, which doesn't let me equip, draw repeat. If I find games start to go on for a bit longer I might put it back in.
Heart Warden is a pretty cool card, but I don't know what I'd take out. It might be a tad bit too slow as well, as I usually can only cast it turn 2, which only gives me an extra 1 mana turn three, whereas I'm usually aiming for a bit more. Might test it out though as the added draw ability can be helpful.
Glimpse of Nature is busted 100%, I just have no idea what to slot out for it. If you have any suggestions please let me know.
Fierce Empath is something always in the back of my mind, but I've found there's enough tutors/card draw en masse to grab craterhoof or regal force pretty reliably.
Thanks for all your suggestions!

How prevalent is flying in your meta? Is Reap a meta call?
Skullclamp - Draw
Heart Warden - Mindstone, the elf
Glimpse of Nature - Cantrip early game, powerhouse late game. I once had a game I conceded because all I did was make mana off of every elf cast and drew almost my entire deck and I couldn't win (me just playtesting against opponent for early trials). This can go insane.
Fierce Empath - While not an entirely serious suggestion, it's worth considering. Helps you find your craterhoof for finish, regal force/harvest for draw or the other card for lifegain/token production
