Yes. Blight Herder doesn't specifically say it can only be used on face-up exiled cards, so that means it can be used on any exiled cards.

Is the Blight Herder really allowed to put face down exiled cards from a Bomat Courier on the battlefield to the graveyard!?

Other considerations: Dimensional Infiltrator (potentially dodges removal), Blight Herder , Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver (I would say over Davriel), Relic of Progenitus (neat "cantrip" for this deck), Eternal Scourge . Depending on how you swing it, may allow you to work in Unclaimed Territory , Sea Gate Wreckage , or other fun stuff.

I like how you're using the ingest mechanic, I've been wanting to try it in edh for a while. I feel like Sire of Stagnation would fit in nicely here, maybe in place of one of those one drops. Also consider Fathom Feeder and Blight Herder .

Great looking deck!

You're a card short, you might want to consider something that goes wide or something that pulls from the graveyard, since you have a few cards that look for sacrifices. Blight Herder and Hangarback Walker come to mind for going wide, and Colfenor's Urn can easily bring your big eldrazi back from the graveyard.

So, yeah, I made a mistake about Dimensional Infiltrator , i tought you said Blight Herder . Dimensional Infiltrator was there to have an early creature that could dealy a strong attacker if i could exile a land and return it to my hand while flashing it. As welll as a flying body, wich the deck ins't full of.

About Nihil Spellbomb , it works the same as relic, but having to pay a instead of to buy a card, which, in my opinion, is not worth it.

About drawing a Leyline, yeah, it sucks, it's kinda like drawing another KCI when you already had one in the field, but the second one could still be sacked while the second leyline cannot. Would there be a valid replacement? I've been thinking about it; to put the nihil insted of the leyline, it might work, afterall its cheaper and can draw me some cards. I might try an interaction where i place 2 leylines and more spellbombs.

zapyourtumor I was thinking about more Blight Herder because of the bodies you get on the board with just 5 mana (3 lands potentially!) as well as gaining colorless mana when a blood moon is out is always good (or when you just miss those colorless land drops, which has happened in my testing :/). Although it kinda fights for the 5 cmc slot and I really like Reality Smasher so i'll play around with that.

NKlim I run Sorin to offset the lifeloss in this deck from the lands and Thoughtseize . He also works well with Lingering Souls for better blocks and overall more lifegain. I really like Kaya, Orzhov Usurper ! I have given it some thought about adding her to this deck but I can't figure out what to cut lol

Thanks for the suggestions!
