TheVectornaut no worries about timing. There's no rush to build a good deck. I'm just glad to hear from you. Based on your descriptions I think the second option is where I want to go with this deck, but with some added self-mill so I can really build up options for osgir quickly. Here are some cards that are on the way that I am most likely going to add soon: Phyrexian Triniform (big creature that may work better than triplicate titan), Rings of Brighthearth (4 tokens instead of two with osgir), Blinkmoth Urn(big mana), Goblin Engineer (sac and tutor in one), Zirda, the Dawnwaker(more mana help) and Leonin Abunas (protection). I also am pretty sure I will get Coveted Jewel, Basalt Monolith, Jhoira's Familiar (mana help), Grinning Totem, Kuldotha Forgemaster, Oswald Fiddlebender (tutors), Urza's Bauble (draw). I think if I get these and drop the ones in the sideboard section the deck would have increased mana efficiency, more tutors, and overall just stronger. The last piece I think would be a Mesmeric Orb, Grinding Station, or Keening Stone to fill up faster because the current GY fill cards are just lacking. Let me know if you think these are good choices out of the maybe board to snag. Ill try to playtest the deck a bit more online to see as well. Thanks!

libraryjoy thank you for helping me out once again. I think I am mostly between Unwinding Clock, Grinding Station, Panharmonicon. One for getting to play on everyone else's turn (with Shimmer Myr + Unwinding Clock ), Grinding Station for more repetitive self mill and Panharmonicon for 4 tokens instead of 2 (this is how it works right?). which would you choose out of those three? I updated the deck as well so everything in the mainboard and sideboard I own but sideboard cards I think I could eventually trade out for better cards. Also, I put back in Boros garrison and return to dust but the dragon I just feel isn't worth it.

Hi libraryjoy it's great to see you are still active on this site. I think the budget is probably around $50. I love the idea of basalt with zirda but I think it just may require a lot of change in order to have every permanent have an activated ability. Im not as sure about Elixir of Immortality because essentially I want the biggest GY so I can have the most options of artifacts to clone. I really do want to pony up for a 10+ dollar card I just done know which yet, either Darksteel Forge, Akroma's Memorial, Grinding Station, Panharmonicon, Mishra's Bauble or Unwinding Clock I think are frontrunners there. Or Ethersworn Canonist, Inventors' Fair, Lotus Field, and Esper Sentinel for nonartifact expensive ones. Puppet Strings or anything like that I think is a must-have so thank you for that one. I've also added some other cards I think are essential and cut some of the insanely expensive ones so I can cut your work on this down a bit haha.

Thanks rb701 for youre comment!
But im not sure if i just should remove Blinkmoth Urn since i never really needed it and the deck is running pretty well at the moment.
Any other ideas what to Change?
At the Moment im thinking of something like this:
1 x Tormod's Crypt Graveyard hate
1 x Grave Pact Creatures
2 x Altar of the Brood more mill
1 x Profane Memento lifegain against aggro
4 x Feed the Swarm
1 x Genesis Chamber

Thanks wallisface! Modern seems to be really interesting!
Sorry for my late respond, i didn´t find the time to test out your adivces and change the Deck. But now here it is, Version 2.0.
I made a few changes based on your Tips and i think the machine got way faster with it! Im still a bit unsure about the landcount, i somtimes end up with way to much Lands in my opinion, maybe 21 or 22 Lands are enough. I think i will drop one Land and one Grinding Station to add 2 x Ornithopter again or maybe some other Cards.
Im still testing around with this deck, but it went good so far against my friends, so im pretty happy with it rigth now.
Thanks againg for your comment and help!

Wabbajacke welcome to modern!
As far as land count, i’d suggest around 23 for what you’re currently running.
Personally, i’d be adding in 4 Village Rites and 4 Mishra's Bauble . Both those cards will help you cycle through your deck a lot faster and get your engine running consistently. It also means you probably only need 21-22 lands.
As far as things to drop, you can probably do the following:
Duress isn’t a great card, and probably sideboard at best. There are better hand-disruption cards that could be worth running, but i’m not sure this deck wants them mainboard.
You probably only need 3 copies of Grinding Station . With the above-mentioned draw you’re likely to find one, and you don’t need two.
You probably only need 3 copies of Scrap Trawler , for similar reasons.
personally I think you only need two copies of Sly Requisitioner , because its hard to get into play until you’re already in a good position.

Treasure Map Flip is a solid value engine with synergies. Inspiring Statuary lets you cast some big spells, or small spells fast. Rampage of the Clans lets you turn a bunch of tokens into centaurs for beatdown. Grinding Station opens up synergies with your own graveyard while offering a backup wincon.
Splashing into more colours feels fairly low cost here between gilded goose and treasure tokens, even before looking at the MH2 legendaries. I'm talking options like Ravenous Squirrel , Disciple of the Vault and Savvy Hunter - things that love artifacts and can help smooth out the curve. Basically every colour has 1 or 2 drops that love artifacts - I'm most used to splashing black but there is something in all of them.
