In all honesty, I have not come up against a lot of Eldrazi Tron, as of late. I know they use the 12 Urza lands, so I would make an intellectual connection regarding Damping Sphere. Little aggro is fine, but big aggro is a pain. especially when their top-decks are better. Because of this and Humans, I opted for the 2x Damnations in the main.
Hollow One, is a pain! straight up. Against any deck, even Tron--2x Hollow Ones dropped on turn 1 is nearly lethal--depending on their T2 play and your hand. Abrupt Decay & Fatal Push are neat, but cannot do what is necessary. The smaller guys are fine. Cast Down helps a bit, and is literally included for Reality Smasher/Hollow One decks. I may need 2x. I wish i had your Terminates! XD
Thank you. that is very kind of you.

ArchonBlue I'm assuming the U/W build is the Gideon deck on your page? Here as well I would also cut the Damnation in favor of Supreme Verdict the mana is fine and verdict is much more of a sure thing, maybe keep the damnation and find something to cut for the other verdict?

However currently you should run Settle the Wreckage, as its GREAT against both hollow one, and boggles. And it doesn't eat all of your tokens.
P.s. If you splash for cards that make your deck faster at the price of loosing late game winning power (aka. inevitability) you are hardly creatign a control deck. Especially if you already started with a deck that should be called "gideon tribal midrange". I meant that if you are focusing on early turns with targeted discar that is 6x do nothing cards right there, true "draw-go" lists would beat decks built this way easily. By powerful late game cards i meant cards like Secure the Wastes or White Sun's Zenith - producing your win condition at the opponent's end step is significan't, you win at instant speed, hold up all the mana you may need on their turn, and can even wait till they tap out.)

Damnation is an easy sideboard include in almost any u/b mid range or control deck. not a huge fan of Disrupting Shoal could probably shave that and go up a cryptic. I also think Negate is a much better sideboard card to bring in for certain matchups. Hero's Downfall could also be another good piece of removal.

SynergyBuild, thanks for the thoughtful recommendations! There's no denying that the Triskelion and Mikaeus, the Unhallowed combo is useful, and would fit nicely into this deck, but I already have it in another one of my more competitive decks. I wanted this one to be pretty casual for the most part, which is also why I avoided putting too many tutoring cards in there.
As for the 0-drops such as Memnite, Shield Sphere, Ornithopter, etc.: I'd rather focus on creatures that can generate tokens like Abhorrent Overlord, Sifter of Skulls, and Sengir Autocrat for the sac bait. Since CMC isn't an issue for Whisper, Blood Liturgist's ability, there'd be no point to include the 0-drops that would only be worth a single sacrifice, and not necessarily be worth bringing back with Whisper, Blood Liturgist to sacrifice again.
I do think that most of the cards you suggested be cut still have pretty valid reasons to be present in the deck. Most of those cards are either for spot removal Malicious Affliction, control Grave Pact, ETB/upon death triggers Kokusho, the Evening Star, discard effects Call the Bloodline, or token generation Noosegraf Mob. I mean, sure, Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger doesn't really fit in the deck, but I couldn't pass up the opportunity to potentially cheat out an Eldrazi titan on like, turn 4.
I could probably drop Ancient Craving for one of the more efficient cards like Night's Whisper though. I really like Corpse Connoisseur too. Diabolic Intent fits the theme of the deck, so I might swap that in for one of the other tutoring cards. Withering Boon seems pretty great too. Counterspells in black are hilarious, and often unexpected. Toxic Deluge could very well end up replacing Damnation, because you're right, it is pretty good. Just not sure if paying that much life is always worth the effect.
Thanks again for all the great suggestions! I've definitely still got some work to do on this deck.

Damnation, while it is a nice card, is almost never helpful. I can usually get to Ensnaring Bridge with no cards in time to render it, for all intents and purposes, useless. And Mesmeric Orb sort of has the same win more quality. This deck is only a mill deck in that it kills your opponents by having them draw to death, but getting cards into graveyards is only really my goal if they deal me damage or destroy my artifacts or something. Pithing Needle basically takes out any usage I have of Torpor Orb and Orb of Dreams hurts me too much. Winter Orb isn't modern legal.

If it's been working then keep rocking it!
Looking at your matchup statistics I'm a little surprised that burn wasn't a better matchup. Historically it's been 55/45 or maybe even 60/40 for Grixis, but depends on the grixis build.
Hollow One. That matchup annoys me. I think Anger of the Gods and Damnation in the sideboard make it better, but still not good. Graveyard hate, especially Leyline of the Void, helps too, but I don't know when I would board it in otherwise. But all the same, is there anything we can do to improve that matchup?
