Kozilek's Predator

Creature — Eldrazi Drone

When Kozilek's Predator enters the battlefield, put two 0/1 colorless Eldrazi Spawn creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."

Also little side though I had a 60 card casual mono green eldrazi deck amd before you ask how is that casual, it wasnt big fatty eldrazi like modern or most competitive EDH plays it played. Nest Invader , Kozilek's Predator , Hand of Emrakul , Growth Spasm Awakening Zone simple stuff like that and what I found was having a problem with all these 0/1 tokens on the field so if you have that problem some how in 100cards..... Overwhelming Stampede and cards like that.....food for though

Nothing quite like spice with a price limit hah.

Hm, Kozilek's Predator doesn't seem to do much for you here. It's too expensive to be effective ramp and too small to be an effective beater. I'd say you're better off swapping those out for another beater that pairs well with unblockable. Sagu Mauler has the advantage of having hexproof so he can't be picked off as easily, and Hunted Troll has the advantage of being absolutely massive for the mana cost. You could also swap out some of the Yasova Dragonclaws for some of these.
Similarly, Augury Owl is too small to be a beater and doesn't ramp you at all. I'd say you're better off playing either some removal or more unblockable enablers in its place. Personally I'd swap them out for another two Aqueous Form, but you could also try Distortion Strike, Vapor Snag, or Disperse. The former two help your gameplan, the latter two help you stay alive to pull your gameplan off.
Smiliarly again, Call the Scions is too expensive to be an effective ramp spell, and the dorks are too small to make effective beaters. I say you're better off swapping them out for two more Llanowar Elves as a much more effective ramp spell. If you're afraid of sweepers or just prefer traditional ramp, you could opt instead for the OG Rampant Growth or even Harrow if you're feeling extra spicy (notice that harrow puts the lands into play untapped- you basically pay one mana to ramp on that turn!)
Civilized Scholar  Flip is... well, it's something. I'm not trying to tell you what to do or anything, but why play this? I suppose it does help filter through your deck and does make a scary beater if you can make it unblockable, but it dies to literally everything. Electrolyze, blocked by a lingering souls token, pyroclasm, even night of souls betrayal. I'd say if you're going to play something with one toughness it would be better off being a mana dork. Alternatively you could swap this for another unblockable spell or some removal.
Hour of Need doesn't play into your main strategy pretty much at all but I do think the concept of turning a few mana dorks into 4/4 fliers is hilarious. I assume you really like this card, leave it in if it's fun. It could be replaced with something else to make the deck more competitive but sometimes you just have to stick to your memes.

That's all I can think of while sticking close to the $10 budget. If your budget goes up let me know, I've got a few more ideas

Orochi Hatchery should give you repeatable X token generation, providing some board wipe resistance and efficiency over Snake Basket, so I'd probably take out the basket for the hatchery late game, and early game you don't really want the basket either. There are also a LOT of 4 drops in the deck already. That said, the basket could be useful I would just run hatchery over it. Might also want to cut Kozilek's Predator.

Unless you really want that extra token, Kozilek's Predator is a Emrakul's Hatcher costing less.

I think convoke works best with tokens. I would suggest putting token makers like Khalni Garden, Nest Invader, Kozilek's Predator and some few Ramps like Nissa's Pilgrimage. Put some utility cards like Selesnya Charm. Ramp is always greens best weapon.

xBradley5000 Thanks! Eldrazi Mimic is a really good idea! Awakening Zone is really good to, but I think Kozilek's Predator is just to slow on turn 4.

I really like this deck idea! It's pretty simple but it seems it could work really well. I would definitely recommend putting a playset of Eldrazi Mimic in the deck. They're good for when a big eldrazi hits but doesn't have haste. I would also recommend Awakening Zone or From Beyond if you want something cheaper. If you do go with Awakening Zone, I would highly recommend Kozilek's Predator, Nest Invader, and Growth Spasm because they give you tokens. If you have those in there, a playset of Hand of Emrakul would be helpful for when you are unfortunate enough to draw an eldrazi, but don't have the mana to hardcast it. Again, really cool deck, hope my suggestions help! I might even build a version of this myself :p
