Look at the top five cards of your library. You may reveal a colorless card from among them and put it into your hand. Then put the rest on the bottom of your library in any order. (Cards with no colored mana in their mana costs are colorless. Lands are also colorless.)

My go-to budget Tron list I recommend to help grind FNMs is:
This gives several utility lands, while also having a good balance of colored mana. The important thing to remember: you absolutely cannot have lands come into play tapped and you will lose games to decks like Burn and Death's Shadow if you have to pay life. The obvious choice is Grove of the Burnwillows for this very reason. However, that obviously will eat your entire budget.
Pinecrest Ridge is probably the best replacement. Not only does it have the option to just tap for colorless and come into play untapped, you can get the or you need to search for Tron pieces or cast Pyroclasm.
This is pretty standard for a Tron list, the exception being Talisman of Impulse. While you don't want to be paying the life against faster decks, having the ability to tap for colored mana and still get Tron on turn 3 is more helpful when you're on a budget. It means you can play multiple World Breakers, add Inferno Titans, or use whatever budget options you have lying around when some of the more expensive fat cards (like Karn Liberated or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth) aren't available. That way, you're not relying a whole lot on cards like Myr Battlesphere or Steel Hellkite.
You need boardwipes. Pyroclasm is especially important because you will lose to a turn one Slippery Bogle is you do not kill it immediately. They will untap on their turn two and toss an umbra on it. By the time you can use another piece of removal, you'll be so low on life that they can simply play another one or get you with Dryad Arbor. The same is true against turn one Glistener Elf. They will use something like Apostle's Blessing to deal with whatever you have once they untap.
You can skip on red and go straight mono-green, but then you just have to accept that you lose to Infect, Bogles, and Burn. If these aren't in your meta, replace Talisman of Impulse with Mind Stone or Relic of Progenitus and the lands with basic Forests and a 2nd. Ghost Quarter.
The All Is Dust is probably the only non-budget card I'd recommend you have because of how much 3+ color decks get BTFO'd on turn three when you slam it. If it's still out of your budget, replace it with a Platinum Angel.
That's 50 cards total. Your last 10 cards should be:
- OR win conditions
- OR removal
Basically, choose a combination of the following that fits into your budget (I put them in order of importance):
- Karn Liberated
- Wurmcoil Engine
- Ugin, the Spirit Dragon
- World Breaker
- Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
- Kozilek, Butcher of Truth
- Sundering Titan
- Relic of Progenitus
- Steel Hellkite
- Spatial Contortion
- Warping Wail
- Myr Battlesphere
Based on what you've posted, I'd recommend something like:
2x Wurmcoil Engine
2x Sundering Titan (you can power this out on turn 3 via Talisman of Impulse and laugh at some Jund player's $2,000 mana base as they concede)
4x Relic of Progenitus
1x Spatial Contortion
All that's left is your sideboard. Based on the above, I'd go with:

My binder here is reasonably up to date, if there is something you specifically need though I am more than happy to go through my boxes and see if I have it lying around.

The_Besticle, thank you for the advice. Farseek is a way better choice than Rampant Growth. As for Ancient Stirrings, I use that for also grabbing a possible artifact. I do see the point you're making and I think this deck could use a bit more ramp. Thank you also for showing me that Arcane Adaptation is a wasted slot. Didn't think about only having five non dragons. (not counting Adaptive Automaton) I don't know about Kindred Discovery , mostly the double is unsettling.

If you are playing Eldrazi, Eldrazi Temple is a must. Also if you are playing green, your should consider a playset of Ancient Stirrings as well. If you like, take a look at a Mono-Green Pauper Tron build I am playing: TRON Looking good my friend! - Alex

I would drop Rampant Growth for Farseek. The ability to pull a something like a shock land is too good to pass up. I like the idea of Ancient Stirrings but I think a Cultivate or Kodama's Reach would be a better option. More expensive, sure, but far more powerful. Dump Arcane Adaptation, you don't have enough non-Dragons to warrant running it. Instead Kindred Discovery allows for a crazy amount of drawing or, for the same CMC, Temur Ascendancy.

challenge this.Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hungers cast trigger is so much better. It takes away the two most important permanents of you oppenent. Ulamog himself puts any opponent no matter how crazy the boardstate might be on a 3 turn clock, what simply Kozileg doesnt do.
