Incandescent Soulstroke is a must-have in Elementals as it is a lord and allows you to cheat out creatures.

Smokebraider is also better than the current mana dorks as it taps for any mana.

I also do suggest you splash into 5 colors as you have a wider variety of elementals to choose from. While I recognize and respect your want to stay budget, having a 50$ limit instead of 36$ will help this deck's viability significantly. Unclaimed Territory would help with mana fixing Nova Chaser is extremely powerful You also said you had difficulty dealing with big creatures, Shriekmaw is an elemental that would give you some removal. Woodland Wanderer can also be a 6\6

Dragonmaster Outcast is fantastic. Sometimes I play it early just to see if they have removal since I can get it back with Den Protector or Greenwarden of Murasa . Woodland Wanderer might be sketchy include because of Converge but I figured an on-flavor (elemental) 4/4 for 4 with upside isn't half bad. And I've cast it with Unknown Shores and/or Shaman of Forgotten Ways a few times to get an extra counter or two.

Any deck that plays Nulltread Gargantuan gets an upvote from me!

Consider Coiling Oracle. Pairs great with Nulltread, evolves your 0 power creatures, and is a reasonable graft target. Also inexpensive! I have no idea what Fathom Mage or Master Biomancer are worth right now, but if they're in your budget you should definitely run them. Experiment One is another great evolve creature. Strangleroot Geist and Young Wolf both have undying, which is recursion PLUS a 1/1 counter! Avatar of the Resolute and Narnam Renegade are great 1/1 counter cards. Woodland Wanderer is a personal favorite of mine in 2+ color decks. I know Hardened Scales just recently jumped in price but it's a card to look out for if you can afford it.

You should consider playing some removal or counterspells so that a well-creafted deck doesn't just roll all over you. Mana Leak and Remand are cheap, effective counterspells. Unfortunately Blue + Green is the color combination with the worst removal - your best bets are Rapid Hybridization or Beast Within.

Your lands could use a little improving too. I know that's hard on a budget, but Botanical Sanctum is still (relatively) inexpensive, so you can try that. You could also look at Hinterland Harbor, though honestly I don't remember what the price on that looks like at the moment. At absolute bare minimum you could consider some Evolving Wilds so you can grab the color you want when you need it. They also trigger Revolt for Narnam Renegade, if you do wind up running that.

Whatever you decide to do, good luck and have fun!

skullz7, I know I'll be testing the new Sarkhan for sure. I did take a good look at the others you listed (as well as the rest of M19) and I don't think any of them are good enough to replace what's already in the main board.

I'd rather have Dromoka or Broodmother in the 6-drop slot than Lathliss, but I can see myself taking 1 out and testing her instead.

Dragon's Hoard doesn't really start paying off until mid to late-game; until then it's just a worse Shaman of Forgotten Ways. Again, I could be wrong so I'll definitely try it.

One card I am excited about is Goreclaw, Terror of Qal Sisma. It's not a dragon but it does make the big guys significantly cheaper. I think I'll take out the Woodland Wanderer and see how this does instead.

It depends on the local meta: mine is generally filled with control and midrange decks (I'm including Zombies here), Ramunap Red is not very popular. Woodland Wanderer has been a beast in my games, often coming down as a 6/6 Vigilance Trampler on turn 3 or 4. Thanks to it, I'm currently 7-1 (I haven't been very active in summer). I decided to cut the other mana dork (Channeler Initiate) and move the Tireless Tracker and the 3 Chandras to the sideboard to include Longtusk Cub, Bristling Hydra and Whirler Virtuoso since I often lacked the threats to close games.

There is no guarantee I will still be on the Temur Energy plan come rotation, though if I do, I will certainly have to work on the mana base.

Replace Woodland Wanderer with Lightning Runner. Can hit for 8 damage and that's without counting other creatures. I run it, and it's a very powerfull card

You already have a couple converge cards in here, so you may have already considered these cards, but Painful Truths, Exert Influence, Radiant Flames,and Woodland Wanderer are all good cards to throw into your deck. Painful Truths gives you card draw (3 cards for 3 mana!), Radiant Flames wipes out mana dorks and tokens, Exert Influence can steal your opponents cards (imagine taking a platinum angel or something of that likeness), and Woodland Wanderer is a strong 6/6 Vigilence Trample for 4 mana.
