Play the Leonin Relic-Warder. Choose a target.
Exile it with Roon's ability BEFORE the exile ability resolves. Now the leaves the battlefield effect goes on the stack.
The leaves the battlefield effect will resolve, but nothing is in exile so nothing comes back. Now the exile effect resolves and exiles the target, however, there is no longer a way for it to come back (the half of the ability that would have returned the card to play has already been triggered and "failed").
Since Roon has to tap to do this, you can really only do it if he's untapped and something exiles it for him the first time, or you untap roon with something. This could be Thousand-Year Elixir or Conjurer's Closet.
Mangara of Corondor just avoids that whole process. Just exile him with Roon before he exiles himself.

Since Weathered Wayfarer can search up any land in the deck, I think you should cut 1-2 Ghost Quarter in favor of more plains to help guarantee 2 white sources on turn 2 for all of your 2-drops. Also if you're wanting to speed this deck up like you mentioned in the description, I'd cut down on the Mentor of the Meeks in favor of more Knight of the White Orchids and Precinct Captains. I'd also consider adding a few Student of Warfares in place of 1-2 Weathered Wayfarer, since student is a more aggressive card to speed the deck up with. I also think Banisher Priest is a little better than Oblivion Ring for adding devotion and it doubles as a threat, so I'd move the Rings to the SB since there aren't a lot of PW's and things in Modern to worry about. Hope some of that helps!

I do like some of those ideas. I disagree with the traits you suggested early in your post, though. I also don't know that the last ability is appropriate. I'll offer more usable feedback when I get the lore composed in a logical manner.
Specifically, though, I like the ideas driving the trait and first two abilities.
I think you've helped me overcome one of the main design obstacles with this walker, which is that I felt constrained to use scry (a major mechanic for blue in this set) and similar effects rather than free to explore other abilities that can simply leverage scry and take the design in a new direction.
I really like some of these ideas, and I'll be playing with those over the next few days as I get the lore ready.

I am making an Eldrazi themed EDH deck and looking for ways to get cards exiled for ammo. So I was wondering if cards that are exiled with another card can be used as Void Attendant ammo. Some cards that I was thinking are Pyxis of Pandemonium or Banisher Priest to place them in exile. Can Void Attendant or other Eldrazi's with the same ability take those cards out of exile?

Ohthenoises - I'm not worried about card draw, I put more stock into my answers. Banisher Priest and Duergar Hedge-Mage come to mind as core creatures. There are some cards that are on the chopping block, but I want to keep my creature density high.

With Banisher Priest, it has the reminder text saying that it returns under its owner's control. However, since Fiend Hunter's ability is split into 2 groups, you can have it enter (possibly pair it with Deadeye Navigator), then flicker him so his second ability won't come into effect yet. Since the ability is on the stack, the flicker happens first, THEN the creature is exiled, leaving the return ability nonexistent. That means you can make him a permanent exiler for your opponent's creatures. This has been debated at tournaments when + was legal in standard, but trust me, it works. Just as long as you flicker him right after he enters.
