I'd cut most of your planeswalkers, most of your non-ramp artifacts, and most of your enchantments.

My primary piece of advice here is that 1) You really should choose to prioritize abusing creatures OR spells, not both, because there are simply too few slots, and 2) you want your spells/creatures to do things in multiples. You don't need too much draw here because your mana is tied up doubling splashy spells, but you need a heck of a lot of mana ramp to keep up.

I don't mean to sound curt, sorry :( Hope this was at least a bit helpful! I agree with Lilbrudder that it's simply too many cards to reasonably cut down, and that you should take a little time and find a focus for the deck.

So I'd say that you want more token support in this deck. Also Given the low CMC, I'd say you can take out a land and go 35 lands. Given that, I'd say add Parallel Lives in. Doubles the tokens from any source, which is kinda ridiculous. I'd also say instead of Secure the Wastes put in Martial Coup as it also doubles as a board wipe.

I would also say remove Awakening Zone for Intangible Virtue as in this deck, a 0/1 doesn't benefit you unless you are going to be swinging for lethal.

Also, Verdant Force seems to slow for the deck. Instead, a card engine could be very powerful. Mentor of the Meek works perfectly as each token you make will give you the ability to draw a card from.

Also, the cost for Titanic Ultimatum seems to be too expensive and mana specific for just about any deck. Instead, something that sticks around and remains a threat is Legion Loyalist while only costs one mana. Triumph of the Hordes also acts as a finisher in an incredibly dirty way as well.

Vandalblast also takes care of any and all artifacts opponents have, so does a good job stopping artifacts from becoming more of a threat. I'd put that in over Growing Ranks as Growing Ranks only nets you at most one creature a turn and that is not very beneficial when the creature it makes is a small token. If you were making Angels or Wurms, I'd say it would be worth having it in.

I would like to see the Purph+Tempt combo, but I know you aren't putting that in. :'(

Id swap out hellrider for something you can abuse better. Hellrider is a better form of Embermaw Hellion, which isnt a very powerful card in its own right. Maybe add in some sort of token generator? Verdant Force is decent. Ive always found battledriver to be a drop early game. If i dont get it early game in my ruric thar deck, ill let him sit for discard fodder. Early game he is a beast

Archetype of Endurance, Elderscale Wurm, Whisperwood Elemental, Soul of the Harvest, Verdant Force, Omnath, Locus of Mana, Primal Surge, Elder of Laurels, Beastmaster Ascension and Bellowing Tanglewurm. Green permanents with growth in power and number, if you play mono green that is definitely their strength.

Fun cards yet budget:

Browsing the cards, I think you could use reanimating creatures like Apprentice Necromancer and Doomed Necromancer as they can reappear.
