When Matter Reshaper dies, reveal the top card of your library. You may put that card onto the battlefield if it's a permanent card with converted mana cost 3 or less. Otherwise, put that card into your hand.

Matter Reshaper Discussion
12 minutes ago
@buckeyetron: You're the one going all over the place. I initially said half the meta, then you literally asked "what weird local meta are you playin in?"
You're getting hung up on taking my statement literally, as though Merfolk Trickster deals with exactly 50% of the Modern meta. But luckily we have some tools available:
Merfolk Trickster does good things against:
- 7.89% of the decks in Modern use Meddling Mage
- Tarmogoyf: 7.56%
- Matter Reshaper: 4.69%
- Kitchen Finks: 4.22%
- Knight of the Reliquary: 3.98%
...and so on. SO SURE, TECHNICALLY IT'S NOT LITERALLY HALF THE META. But is Merfolk Trickster a relevant card against maybe 30% to 40% of the meta? Yes. The card is Modern playable.
This is also getting so far off-topic. It doesn't really matter who or what is playing Merfolk Trickster, what matters is that it's going up in price.
While a $0.25 flip in value isn't much for one card, it's absolutely a large flip in value when you start flipping dozens of them. I made $30 off of Young Pyromancers when I got them for $0.75 and sold them for $1.75 when they were first released. People have been doing this with commons and uncommons for as long as there have been valuable commons and uncommons. Fatal Push and Aether Hub were also good cards to flip not too long ago. Serum Visions was down to around ~$2 when it was reprinted in Conspiracy. If you loaded up on large quantities, you made off with easy money.
I'm not sure what you're trying to get at, other than "Ah-ha! Gotcha! Merfolk Trickster is only usable against 49.9% of the Modern Meta and only went from $0.10 to $0.80 (never going above $1)!"
So neat, I guess?

Matter Reshaper seems like itd be a good fit, maybe in place of Thought Knot?

Looks like a good deck! As for suggestions, have you considered maybe playing Caves of Koilos/Llanowar Wastes and Battlefield Forge/Shivan Reef instead of the Evolving Wilds? They will only get you 2 of each of your mana symbols, but they won't come in tapped. Also, what are your thoughts on Matter Reshaper?

I don't think you understand modern as a format, unless you can overwhelm Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker and his infinite swarm, Path to Exile is useful, same goes for a Wurmcoil Engine and it's babies, or if you ever want to cast a spell chosen by a Meddling Mage.
Decks in the metagame that Path to Exile is useful against:
R/B Hollowed One (Everything, they want it recurred, now it is in exile)
Affinity (Whatever creature they alpha strike with)
U/W Control (Wall of Omens)
Scapeshift (Primeval Titan)
Living End (Archfiend of Ifnir mostly, but any of their creatures should help slow down their explosion of creatures)
Infect (Self Explanatory, any of their creatures and they are doomed)
Ironworks Combo (Kill their Scrap Trawler, and they lose)
Welp, that about wraps up my reasons why path is so dang good, but I guess I'll share some more:
It isn't rare to have Path to Exile be named the best removal in modern, next to Lightning Bolt and Fatal Push as it's contenders, it exiles, unlike either, and is unrestricted removal, some decks splash white just to play it, and you don't play it when it is your only color it looks stupid to say "Oh, I'll trample over all of the creatures it could hit", when your creatures are smaller than many (even after buffs and accounting for double strike) and they wouldn't block the others.

I have some suggestions the.
Turn something in your creature base into a couple of Walking Ballista. It's ping-effect is rather important in the deck against certain matchups. Most people run 4. I's say that's a lot, but at least 2 copies would be a helping hand.
If you want to make the deck really good Chalice of the Void is your savior.

I tried to build a deck similar to this one some time ago... I'd consider adding 4x Palladium Myr instead of Warden of Geometries, since it gives more mana and can be flipped by Matter Reshaper's death trigger effect.Since you run colorless, I'd consider utility lands such as Ghost Quarter or Sea Gate Wreckage.Maybe consider also Gemstone Caverns in the land department.
Good luck and happy brewing!

You would probably have to adjust your creature base a bit, but i personally find half the battle with any colored eldrazi deck is assembling the mana base. Eldrazi tron takes out that middle man. You find a way to get a playset of temples (I know its gonna run ya about 40 bucks) but its completely necessary. Then you have access to Matter Reshapers and Thought-Knot Seers and Reality Smashers then you can have flavor adds like Kozilek, the Great Distortion or Kozilek, Butcher of Truth you can keep in your conduits and ugin and have a much more aggressive drazi shell.
