Obviously, we'd need to patch the other 10, but does this seem like a good deal?

This comment warms my heart. Eldrazi was such a parasite deck that ruined the format for almost a year. Funny to hear players of a deck with the most ramp and every single card 2 for 1 complain about being unable to keep up with the meta. :)
That being said, absolutely nothing against you personally.
I don't think there is a lot of colorless hate cards against Control beyond grave hate stuff. You could add some Mutavault to your list. It can't be countered, can swing as early as turn 2 and the only answers a stock U/W list will have for it is Path to Exile or land destruction. (Which your deck has many targets). Against Control if they don't tap out for some thing it's best to wait until you can play your threats in multiples. Use the first threat as bait to draw out their counters and the second being what you hope to resolve. Once you get something on the board that can attack, let your threats in hand build up again. Otherwise they'll be happy to let you land every thing on the board and wrath next turn.
I also recommend the upgrade to Spyglass over Needle. Hand info is so crucial in that match up. Cavern has a ridiculous price right now but I think it'll help more than you believe. Lastly I'm not so sure Chalice of the Void on 1 is very good against Control. Sure it'll turn off Path & the filter cantrips but that doesn't hit the deck hard at all, more of a slight annoyance.

Quick note: This is currently about a year out of date. I'm currently deckcycling and doing some consideration to account for new cards and/or metagame shift.

APPLE01DOJ the Mox Opals. With Darksteel Citadel and Darksteel Relic, not to mention the plethora of 2 drops, Metalcraft isn't hard, so it's effectively a artifact land. I went with Victim of Night, because it's 2 mana, to avoid cucking myself with Chalice of the Void on one.

'er ya go Eater of Tezzeret (budget)
not super budget (ya boi tezzeret is a bit pricey and Defense Grid is the best replacement for Chalice of the Void I could find (tbh its probs better than chalice. I should really put it in the non budget version)) but its a tenth of the price of the original (fuckn 2000 bucks holy shit)

I played 8 rack for a couple of years and the deck is both quite budget friendly and a bunch of fun! I found that running 7-8 "racks" made the deck the most consistent (as the name 8-rack implies), so I would recommend putting in 3-4 Shrieking Affliction. Playing 24 lands with 4 Raven's Crime also adds a lot of consistency (it's actually a really good card), especially when running a couple of Dakmor Salvage for recursion.
In my experience, effects that trigger when an opponent discards a card are risky to run, because the aim of the deck is usually to get your opponent empty handed ASAP and they are difficult to trigger after that. If you want to play Liliana's Caress I would say play it with in a red/black deck focused around that sort of effect with cards like Burning Inquiry, Reforge the Soul and Waste Not (see this deck: https://www.channelfireball.com/articles/waste-not-storm-combo/).
Some sideboard options to consider: Throne of Geth against Chalice of the Void on 1 - this is something we see a bit of at the moment in legacy. Throne can sacrifice itself to add a counter to chalice and let you resolve your spells again. Asylum Visitor gives you card draw against decks that can't easily refill their hand and a creature to sideboard in to beat down through Leyline of Sanctity.
Finally, a few of the brewier pieces I used to run were Smallpox and Rotting Rats. Smallpox is something that doesn't hurt us as much as most decks and can mana screw people as well as kill a creature. It's good with Lingering Souls if you have enough ways to discard the souls, so you don't have to play white. Rotting Rats does a bit of a Liliana of the Veil impression by making multiple discard triggers go off, and the unearth can't be countered. APPLE01DOJ above mentioned Necrogen Mists which might actually be better than the rats.
Anyway good to see the deck still has some interest, have fun making opponents sad ;)

Thanks for the response. What cuts would make to your list of you were playing in a non cedh environment?
Consecrated Sphinx, Glowrider, Tendershoot Dryad, Sunscape Familiar, Sun Titan, Elvish Spirit Guide, Glen Elendra Archmage, Glowrider, Lotus Cobra Loxodon Gatekeeper, Oracle of Mul Daya, Phyrexian Metamorph, Phyrexian Revoker, Day's Undoing, Idyllic Tutor, Fabricate, Timetwister, Windfall Frozen AEther, Grasp of Fate Kismet, Chalice of the Void and Lotus Petal are the cards not being played in the above mentioned list.
All the creatures with the exception of Loxodon Gatekeeper, Elvish Spirit Guide, Phyrexian Revoker and Glowrider seem like upgrades for a high end casual environment. If you could only include four creatures that are unique to your list for a casual list what would they be? My guess would be Sun Titan, Glen Elendra Archmage, Tendershoot Dryad, and Sunscape Familiar.
Idyllic Tutor seems really good in a midrange deck. Would its inclusion along with the widely played Enlightened Tutor allow for me to run Living Plane? Is Sterling Grove too slow even for a casual environment? Does Aura Shards make it back into the deck?
