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

Leatherback Baloth Steel Leaf Champion Gigantosaurus and Cloudthresher are the start of a pretty serious green stompy deck.

Throw in some Aspect of Hydra , Llanowar Elves , Elvish Mystic , and Rancor if you can afford it.

The nice thing about Leatherback Baloth and Steel Leaf Champion is that they aren't really fighting for the same position in a deck as the other fatties you mentioned - at three mana, they're practically still early-game plays!

As for the BIG boys, I'd prioritize those who are well-defended: in your case, Plated Crusher and Vorapede. After all, it's no fun to build up to your big finisher only to have it undone by a two mana kill spell. Terra Stomper and Cloudthresher are both good enough to run maindeck but they might be more comfortable fits in a sideboard - versus a control deck or flying-heavy deck, for instance.

Skarg goliath would be wonderful as a 1 or 2 of, the blood rush on an unblocked or trampling creature will end a lot of games. That aside, leatherback, steel leaf, and vorapede are definitely your best options. They give the biggest bang for your buck. Also if you can, try to get your hands on some draw spells. Green can run out of gas fast if you aren't drawing cards. Harmonize , Guardian Project , or Beast Whisperer can be good.
