I can play in lydian I just need to know what type of progression it would go with. For instance E lydian, would E, F#, A, B, E be a proper progression? Thank you.

Take out the A chord (as there is no A in E lydian) and maybe. Still you'd be hard pressed to keep that from sounding tonal. Modal harmony isn't just using chords that are within a mode.

Griff has it pretty much right here. In modal harmony you're usually going to want to have some sort of pedal tone/vamp that firmly defines the root note and the color tones of the mode. F#/E - E is a perfect example of this. You have the established root (E), the E chord highlights the major quality, and the F# chord highlights the #4.
Only play what you hear. If you don’t hear anything, don’t play anything.
