Nice deck. +1 just a thought for the deck that you may want to consider. Champion of Rhonas Might help you cheat out the big cards pretty fast. Could make turn 4 carnage tyrant possible.

+1 Always a fan of mono-green.
Personally I wouldn't recommend Desert of the Indomitable but I assume it's there for cycling and desert sacrifice reasons and Crocodile of the Crossing might be something to look into if you want a little extra speed.

Green stompy is always an enjoyable deck. Is there a reason you've neglected the green energy package (Attune with Aether, Greenbelt Rampager, Longtusk Cub, and Servant of the Conduit)? Greenbelt gets repeatable triggers on Rhonas's Monument and you can sink extra energy into cub to keep on going.

Im considering a mono-green deck. Maybe a minor question, but how does Evolving Wilds help you in a single-color deck?

Thank you all for the comments and suggestions! Unfortunately I had to make this even more budget than before due to life happening...
inkstorm I didnt want to use the energy package because I already have a G/B energy deck so I wanted to try something different. I decided to try on some counters. Unfortunately dont have the verdurous gearhulk and walking ballista yet, but would include them when I do.
Gim thanks for that recommendation! The Croc seems very fitting here after changing it up a bit!
quarteroy I had to cut the big creatures and form a slightly more Afro shell, but still mid-rangeyish due to my meta. Thanks for the suggestion though! If Carnage Tyrant ever comes down in price I will try out both the Champion and the Tyrant.

If you have Ramunap Excavator you can replay the Deserts that you sac to other Deserts. For example, sac Dunes of the Dead to Hashep Oasis to buff a creature and create a 2/2, then just replay the Dunes from your graveyard. That's a lot of gain for three mana.
Key to the City is another way to dump a Desert for free while making something unblockable, like the Hydra. Works well with the Excavator because you can pitch land instead of playing it for the evasion and then just play the land anyway.
A Verdant Sun's Avatar might be worth it somewhere because you gain 5 life just playing it and then every time you play another creature (which should be every turn) you'll gain more back. It's also super budget. Probably a worth testing one-of for the sideboard.
Ancient Brontodon might seem weird, but with two ways in the deck to make him extra burly it might be worth it. Playing any creature on a turn it can attack that Monument makes it an 11/11 Trample. Key to the City makes a 9/9 unblockable which could just end the game. Another possibility for the sideboard if you don't want to run it main.
Pounce I think is better than Stomp since you aren't exclusively running dinosaurs, and at Instant speed it makes for a nice trick. I have a Dino deck that runs both, and Stomp is great, but less reactive.
In a green Stompy deck you can't go wrong with Rishkar's Expertise. Fantastic draw spell that should get you 4-6 cards and then drop a free creature. So far, everything in your deck would qualify with 5 or less cost. Could even be sweet to hit Hour of Promise. You'd net a bunch of cards, two land, and two tokens for 6 mana. Seems good.
Anyway, just my two cents. You don't see many mono color decks these days (that aren't red anyway). Glad to see someone giving it a go :)

Thanks! You have given me tons of suggestions to play test with! I will let you know how the suggestions play out!
