Trying to keep this budget for one thing. Elvish Archdruid is perfect and I totally agree he should be in here. But. A lot of my decks latley have been based around elvish ramp. So, I'm trying to keep from using Elvish Archdruid ;). Keeper of Progenitus I might sub in for Llanowar Mentor . Thanks for the comments and +1's :).

Have you thought about using Cloudpost /Glimmerpost /Vesuva or the Urza's Lands? I've been working on a Mindslaver deck with the Urza's lands and am going to use them with Everflowing Chalice and Voltaic Key to get a good amount of mana quickly. I think this could work here as well if you're willing to take ~12 forrests out for colorless lands. None of these cards are that costly either :)

Overgrown Battlement , Vine Trellis , Everflowing Chalice , Cloudpost , and especially something like Ensnaring Bridge to keep anything from attacking you so you don't have to deal with triggers from attackers or creature removal targeting Platinum Emperion .

@ducttapedeckbox. Your Cloudpost /Glimmerpost /Vesuva Comment is valid.But, it seems like once I get Platinum Emperion +Aspect of Mongoose the game is over. I can get Helix Pinnacle up to 100 counters surprisingly easy with Keeper of Progenitus .
Everflowing Chalice could be awesome]]
I would say what I most need help with is the early game. Because of Magus of the Vineyard helping my opponent along, it can get ugly quick. Any cards that just flat out say creatures can't attack me? Ensnaring Bridge seems to tough to utilize
Thanks for the comments and +1's! ;)
Feel free to post any decks you would like me to comment on, and I would be happy to comment and +1 :).

This is a very cheap way around the early game problem... but Fog is basically a green Holy Day . Or for creatures, I can think of two things: Phantom Tiger and Phantom Nantuko could help stall; or, Sprouting Phytohydra keeps coming back, which makes it an effective blocker. Although it has a CMC of 5.. Those are just some random thoughts but I hope they help!
In the meantime could you check out my Mindslaver deck? It needs some work...deck:casual-and-cheap-mindslaverurzatron

Ok, it seems like the problem is Magus of the Vineyard and Keeper of Progenitus boosting my opponent's mana quickly, eventually ending the game. Any suggestions to help with that problem would be awesome ;).

Never mind, all of the extra mana would be used on Helix Pinnacle

Also, this is a modern casual deck, I'm not gonna be playing in any tourny's.
This deck is mono-green, I'm not sure I wanna splash white.
Playtest the deck, see what you think :). Thanks for the comments!

In my first post I was referring to what are you going to do about those cards?
August 11, 2012 1:29 p.m.
Most of those cards are sideboard cards. Think I should put up an entirely different strategy in my sideboard so I can sub it in when need be?

If you're going to go that far I suggest adding in Genesis Wave lol. Should help.

Well, I can't think of anything to stop the board sweepers :/.

Soo what turn turn do you normally get out emperion?

Hmm that worries me as with my affinity modern deck: deck:domo-arigato-mr-roboto I'm usually at lethal damage on turn 3-4. You might need some answers to fast aggro decks like affinity, ESPECIALLY playing Magus of the Vineyard . (If you play him turn one I'll dump out 3 creatures and one with a Cranial Plating equipped on my turn 1.) Ratchet Bomb comes to mind for one thought.
