Creature — Eldrazi Drone
Devoid (This card has no color.)
When Eldrazi Skyspawner enters the battlefield, put a 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature token onto the battlefield. It has "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."

Eldrazi Skyspawner Discussion

I would probably consider Eldrazi Skyspawner. It has a decent evasive body for its cost, and leaves behind a Scion that can be popped for mana.

Eldrazi Skyspawner is a must have in a blue eldrazi deck, even not in pauper

I would recomend Eldrazi Scion/Spawn producing creatures for an endles Combo with hasty tokens.

I like the creature suite a lot. So much power!
Have you ever tested with Eldrazi Displacer, Eldrazi Skyspawner, and Drowner of Hope? That Bant list includes a Birds of Paradise and 4 Noble Hierarch for just a bit of ramp since your curve goes down and you can use the Displacer to loop Scion tokens.
That list also depends on Path to Exile and maybe a Blessed Alliance from the sideboard for removal, with other slots reserved to hate out the local meta. Mainboard Nissa, Steward of Elements and sideboard Dromoka's Command are nice with that list, too.
If you want to stay B/G, maybe some cards like Blisterpod, Carrier Thrall, and Catacomb Sifter would give you Scion ramp and a tiny bit of card selection while lowering your curve. I think you can win quick games with Thought-Knot Seer and Reality Smasher.

Alright, okay. Sit down, buckle in because as someone who loves Eldrazi there's a few suggestions that you may just love for this deck.
If this deck is based around exiling your opponent's stuff (be it library or on the field), then mana ramping into big eldrazi to finish off the game, you're gonna want a rather focused deck. Things like Drownyard Behemoth aren't great because, in order for you to reduce it's cost to something practical, you either need to sacrifice your big finishers OR one or two mana dorks. Neither of these are great. Instead there's a very interesting finisher in Ulamog's Despoiler. It costs less mana for a larger creature that will beat your opponents down faster.
The other problem with the current concept is your average converted mana cost for your stuff. Right now it's 5.70. To put that in perspective, on average to cast something in your deck you're going to need 6 mana. Even if you have a few mana dorks on the field, you won't have a noteworthy field presence until at least turn 4. What you're gonna want to do is add lower cost creatures and remove some higher cost ones that don't really impact the game immediately. I'll break down specifics below:
Blisterpod: Great early blocker that turns into mana. 10/10 would include in ramp.
Eldrazi Skyspawner: Same as above, except you get the mana right away AND you get a flier.
Fathom Feeder: Holy crap is this guy value. A 1/1 deathtoucher that ingests. Your opponents are damned if they block, damned if they don't. Not to mention he's late game card draw with ingest. Absolute favorite low-cost eldrazi right there.
Sludge Crawler: A cheap ingester that is pumpable late game. Easy include
Wasteland Strangler: Stat-wise this guy kinda sucks, but if you ingested a card earlier in the game, he turns into a 3/2 for 3 mana that is also a potential kill-spell on a stick. Brain blast.
Oblivion Sower: This guy is no joke. He's a mid-cost eldrazi that will not only exile your opponent's top few cards, he will also potentially ramp into more mana that will help you cast even more big things.
Finally there's a few non-creatures I want to talk about. You have From Beyond for constant mana-ramp, as well as tutoring for an Eldrazi card. A good 1- or 2-of in the deck. For more control cards, you have Transgress the Mind for hand-hate and Titan's Presence for easy removal if you have a large eldrazi in your hand. Remember that anything with Devoid is considered colorless, so you could reveal a Dread Defiler and it would still be fine.
Hope this helped, and I'm sorry if I came off as angry or rude. I really love the deck concept :)

Some powerfull eldrazi are Kozilek, the Great Distortion or Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger. They are kind of expensive so try to put in some more ways to spawn eldrazi scions that you can sacrifice for mana; Such as Eldrazi Skyspawner, However, most of them are green cards, such as Blisterpod or Call the Scions. If you do add green you could also check out World Breaker.

You could try to fit it into a Bant Eldrazi deck. Matter Reshaper is the dream to emerge from, and Eldrazi Skyspawner or even Thought-Knot Seer (respond to the ETB trigger with emerge) can be fine as well. You'd have to rework the mana to fit Deep-Fiend in, most likely.
