Some cheap cards I can think of off the top of my head that might be worth getting for this deck would be Arcanum Wings, Wild Defiance, Mask of Avacyn, Jhessian Infiltrator, Troll Ascetic and of course Slippery Bogle. Sigil of Sleep also pairs well with Invisible Stalker.

Also, it seems like you should play the full 4 copies of Vigean Hydropon since a lot of synergies revolve around it. Silhana Ledgewalker is almost a green Invisible Stalker most of the time... Maybe something to consider rather than Jhessian Infiltrator.

Likewise. It was a decent attempt at a joke the first time. Afterwards it just bored me.

Besides which, the FlyNo is pretty much just a worse colorshifted Jhessian Infiltrator to me. Minus flying making it vulnerable to some cards and invulnerable to others.

As a follow-up, since almost none of the cards in my collection are legal for Modern and I have little desire to spend hundreds or even thousands of dollars 'catching up'. I'm trying to ease into that interesting niche you seem to be carving for yourself, designing effective budget decks for modern and standard formats. My ego isn't such that I wouldn't be able to handle a $40 deck losing to a $400 deck, and I would enjoy the occasional wins under those circumstances more than a tournament title that I had to mortgage the house for.

I'm currently re-evaluating UG for its aggro/tempo potential, considering Coiling Oracle (of course), Invisible Stalker, Shorecrasher Mimic, Jhessian Infiltrator and then spells like Simic Charm and the re-usable Rancor... in the old days, dipping a third color was deemed very risky - now it seems pretty much S.O.P. - and I see a lot of good in white. Unfortunately, the most expensive cards out there right now seem to be lands, and of course Noble Hierarch.

I changed Jhessian Infiltrator for the new naga. Half the power but also half the cost.

New Nissa is also really interesting. You could play her with just one loyalty counter and still be ablo to pop creatures into play straight from your deck. Ultimate is also quite similar to Garruks I think, you can either knock someone out or at least deal some damage.

Budget concerns? well... maybe exchange Hinterland Harbor for Yavimaya Coast. That should make it possible to commit to such major investments as $ 0.16 Cloudfin Raptor and $ 0.23 Coiling Oracle without breaking the 35 dollar upper limit. I still think there should be some kind of land capable of producing both colors of mana, though.

How much is the deck now without maybeboard?

The differences between Jhessian Infiltrator and Cloudfin Raptor are smaller than they seem, as very few modern decks has anything ready to block fliers by turn 2. I just favor Cloudfin Raptor, because it works of any other creatures you might play, where Jhessian Infiltrator requires a very certain sequence - or it will remain a 2/2.

Apart from Simic Charm the deck is sorely lacking any kind of interaction... shouldn't there be at least a few Vapor Snag in there somewhere?

Thanks for your feedback xyr0s, Where I really like cards like Experiment One and Hardened Scales my goal was to try to make this as budget as possible. definitely great additions though if someone wanted to spend extra to ramp it up a bit. was also steering to a lot of multi-colored creatures for shorecrasher buffs usually every turn. Index atm was basically a cheap filler to see what might be coming. normally id rather use Ponder but I believe its banned from modern now. Jhessian Infiltrator to me is a great addition to this as a budget, its cheap and is a low drop unblockable. on top of buffing from biomancer theres plenty of combos that make them quite a pain like
