This is for casual modern play since my play group are teenagers we cant afford the really expensive ones. so we like to home brew magic decks just out of the cards we've obtained through the years. heres my list of fat green monsters i currently own and want to know which ones i should be using in my 60 card decks i already have the mana dorks and ramp spells set out.here they are. Giant Adephage , Skarrg Goliath , Rampaging Baloths , Leatherback Baloth , Steel Leaf Champion , Polukranos, World Eater , Oran-Rief Hydra , Terra Stomper , Plated Crusher ,Giganotosaurus, Vorapede , Cloudthresher ,and finally should i consider adding in my 2 Nissa, Worldwaker .thank you for taking the time to respond and read :) i have 4 of each of these by the way

Bane of Bala Ged if you think you'll have an opportunity to attack may be worth looking at
Gaea's Revenge as another beatstick they probably can't deal with
Plated Crusher comes with its own built in protection
Simic Sky Swallower would require a board wipe to remove
Sphinx of the Final Word would prevent them from countering your own spells

Heritage Druid: your other elf mana dorks are far more viable and are useful by themselves; with how many dorks you have you would likely have to tap one of them to use her effect anyways
Joraga Treespeaker:He's a mana sinkhole; he'll either die before you can max his level or you'll only max him because you have nothing better to spend the mana on at which point he's useless. He's only actually uniquely useful if you can play him turn one, and that's a long shot
Realm Seekers: A neat card, but would be better replaced with a more lethal creature or at least one with more utility
Sages of the Anima: this one is iffy, but in the end it's a relatively slow effect on a vulnerable stick. I would advise replacing it with something like an enchantment with a similar effect if you're dead set on having something like this, but otherwise just replace it with something else altogether.
I would also advise finding some creatures that are decently lethal quickly on their own. Ezuri can make the little guys dangerous as it is, so the big fellas get real nasty when he can buff them up. You may want to put in a few heavy hitters that can get you lethal, as it decreases your build up time and stops you from having to give a mana dork 2 or 3 turns of +1/+1 tokens and trample to be dangerous. I'll always suggest Pathbreaker Ibex as he can turn one decent creature and some shrimps into an overwhelming force. Giant Adephage would also work great as Ezuri's buff(s) will make it nearly impossible to stop you from getting a token with him, or go with Plated Crusher for a decent mix of durability and damage and to keep budget low. You may also want to look at X drop creatures and see if anything fits your build, as with the number of mana dorks you have and the amount of man you will likely need to keep around to keep Ezuri on the board, they could easily get out of hand. I'll still suggest Scute Mob despite him not being an elf simply because he really fits the theme. There are probably some blue or blue/green creatures that will fit this bill too, but this is a start anyways.
Make sure you have a strong mana base. Your dorks are good and all but you're going to lose them and Ezuri more than once, and you need to be able to replace him without their help. Ensure you have some mana doubling cards to help to this end. Also ensure you have several equipment to give creatures haste; Ezuri's ability triggers at the beginning of combat so you can throw out something nasty and go nuclear at the drop of a hat, catching players off guard with some impressive damage.

I definitely agree with your move to pull Narnam Renegade. You could switch it out for a 2 or 3 drop that's more threatening. Pulling Champion of Rhonas is probably a good idea too. For 4 mana, he seems inefficient, and an easy target for your opponent to Lightning Bolt and get a mana advantage before you can use the exert ability. Rather than have another tool for getting stuff out on top of mana ramp, you could put something really killer in that slot. Trostani, Selesnya's Voice might be good for the green-white color combo, and has good synergy with a creature deck. I would also look into Oversoul of Dusk. As for your 7+ mana cards, maybe get rid of Terastodon? I feel like your end game here is to beat down your opponent with your creatures, so giving them extra blockers might be counter-productive. I like Plated Crusher personally. The hexproof keeps it from getting picked off by cheap removal, and the trample really helps seal your end game.

I played in 2HG last weekend, me and my partner went 7-0! He was running B/U with lots of removal and control. Sower of Temptation was good and Nimbus Champion with our combined warriors was nice. I ran G/R with bombs like Vigor, Magmatic Force and Plated Crusher. I also used a Decorated Champion to build up nice with our warriors as well. We only had 1 game that was close and that was against W/U control and a G/B Pir & Toothy combo. We just did what we could the first couple turns and by turn 4 I was dropping big problems for people. Don't underestimate the R/G in this set, if it gets going forget about it!

Awesome start. Here's some of my picks for that general theme:
and (sounding trumpets)....
Centaur Omenreader is Ghalta's secret love.
Loxodon Warhammer, sword of fill-in-the-blank (some are pricey), Hammer of Nazahn <--- winner winner chicken dinner, Grafted Wargear, Shuko, Helm of Kaldra, Helm of the Host <--- My new fave equipment.
This deck looks like it's going to be fun to build. Let me know what kind of budget you're on, and I'll make a few more specific suggestions. If you're willing to throw $20 or $40 at this, you can probably make it very aggressive.

Plated Crusher and Plated Slagwurm are too mana expensive and you probably won't be able to cast them without some sort of ramp. You might be better off with Majestic Myriarch, Rubbleback Rhino, and/or Enshrined Memories.

I'll laugh when someone playing GU ramp sideboards in Dispell for those boardwipes.
This thing is one Mana less than Plated Crusher, plus has uncounterable. I think it'll hang out and make some noise.
