Blight Herder Discussion

I built a displacer deck around Skyclave Apparition, so you may want to try it instead of your Brain Maggot because when Skyclave Apparition dies, your opponent only gets an X/X token does not get their card back, whereas when Brain Maggot dies, your opponent does get their card back.

I would also suggest adding 2 more Concealed Courtyard and 4 Brightclimb Pathway  Flip and removing 3 plains and 3 swamps because starting the game with the right type mana will allow you to play the right card at the rigtht time, which will help you win the game.

Also Blight Herder is a really cool processor card that i didn't know existed, so I may have to play test it to see it's value in my processor deck.

My deck for reference:

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.
