Matter Reshaper

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.

The most commonly played Eldrazi in competitive decks are Eldrazi Mimic , Matter Reshaper , Thought-Knot Seer , and Reality Smasher .

I’d like to reiterate what wallisface said in that your curve is fairly high for the modern meta. Maybe replace some of your more expensive eldrazi with Matter Reshaper , Eldrazi Mimic , or Salvage Drone .

After a bunch of playtesting and goldfishing I've got a new baseline going that is working pretty well.

Turns out new Ugin doesn't help the deck all that much, and really only does the ramping the Oblivion Sower can, but a lot more awkwardly since I can't ramp plain colorless as well as I can Eldrazi. Upped the number of new Karns to compensate for this. Not sure what the right number is, but I hardly saw it at 2x, so now to try 3x.

Got the landbase situated pretty nicely, although I miss the inclusion of the ~2 Ghost Quarter s. Adding Zhalfirin Void definitely helped clean up the topdecks.

The single of Warping Wail in the MB may end up being an All Is Dust , in which case I would do a 2-of Wail in the side.

Matter Reshaper helped fill the gaps in the curve, as well as provide a little bit of CA.

Cindervines in now in place of a few instants. The fact that I can put this down before it's needed really frees up the mana turn-by-turn. I'll have to see if the split cost ends up hurting too much to run it with the current landbase.

The 1-of Phyrexian Metamorph has been awesome so far! Copying my own Thought-Knot Seer is great, and even the larger Eldrazi (unfortunately you lose the cast triggers) has worked out well. The best part is copying an opponent's key permanents (with the help of LMC), like planeswalkers. Since Metamorph is entering the battlefield as a copy of that planeswalker, it still starts at the appropriate level of loyalty counters. This has been huge when copying a Lili, Karnfather, regular Ugin, etc..

Still have a lot of playtesting and adjustments to do. I would really like to get a little more LD into the deck, even if it's just getting the GC's back (might drop some Voids), but so far it is very fun, and the most I have ever been able to use LMC.

Let me know if you have any thoughts!

A different Eldrazi Deck, nice!

Did you considered Matter Reshaper it gives you pressure and in you´re Deck are many cards that you could instant cast with it. An other control spell would be All Is Dust . It gives u a one sided boardwipe.

I think it´s pretty nice to see a eldrazi midrange deck, not the normal aggro or tron decks.

Some cards to think about; Paladin of Atonement , Together Forever , Matter Reshaper , Angelic Destiny , Arena Rector (You'd have to add at least one more PW for that one I think), Demon of Dark Schemes

You also don't have Path to Exile , was that on purpose? Vindicate might be good as well. Liliana of the Veil ? Liliana, Heretical Healer  Flip might actually be dope. That emblem would be nuts. Sorin, Solemn Visitor isn't terrible.

Icbrgr this has nothing to do with the thread... but I get the sense you're relatively new to competitive card games as a whole. A lot of your arguments center around "well x card is fine because its answered by x other card" but there's a huge factor that's missing from your analysis: tempo.
The basic idea of tempo is this:
Let's build a hypothetical game of Hypergenesis v Eldrazi. The Eldrazi player plays a Chalice of the Void for 0 to counter Hypergenesis . Luckily, the Hypergenesis player is running Kolaghan's Command so he has an answer!
By your logic, this should mean that hypergenesis won't struggle with Chalice of the Void , because Eldrazi has a card and Hypergenesis has an answer.
Here's the flaw in your logic that reveals your (probable) inexperience. Chalice of the Void cost the Eldrazi player 0 mana. Kolaghan's Command cost 3 mana. That means that the Eldrazi player came out of that exchange up by 3 mana, which is a form of "Tempo" as it's labelled. The eldrazi player could resolve anything from a Matter Reshaper to a Reality Smasher (if Eye of Ugin is in play) using that 3 mana. Let's investigate what Hypergenesis could have done with that 3 mana instead. It could have played Violent Outburst cascading into Hypergenesis and WON THE GAME!

That's tempo, and the big issue with a lot of your logic is that you don't account for it. Another, more realistic example with less dire consequences:
An eldrazi player drops an Eye of Ugin . they already had a waste in play. The eldrazi player gets to play a Matter Reshaper . His opponent drops an Alpine Moon naming Eye of Ugin . Here's the "tempo breakdown". The Eldrazi player just came out 3 mana ahead AGAIN. he got one mana out of Eye of Ugin discounting the Matter Reshaper as compared with a regular land. That's +1 mana. Alpine Moon turned Eye of Ugin into a land which taps for mana. That's +2 total mana. The Eldrazi player's opponent had to spend on Alpine Moon which he couldn't spend on something else. Thats +3 total mana. HUGE tempo swing in the eldrazi player's favor, which means that this interaction is actually favorable for eldrazi. By your logic however, The eldrazi player's opponent SHOULD have come out ahead because his card "answered" the eldrazi player's card.

If you still aren't understanding this... tempo can be a complicated concept. My honest recommendation is to play magic as frequently as possible, and maybe get into competitive Hearthstone for a while before you get fed up with Hearthstone's stagnant metas and give up on the game. For all its flaws and stagnation, Hearthstone is a great learning ground for core concepts of competitive card games (sequencing, value, tempo, win-conditions, etc).

What I'm getting at is this: Sometimes it costs your opponent more to answer your card than it costs you to play it. In that situation, it doesn't matter that your card got answered, because you came out ahead on that exchange. That's the core of why Eldrazi decks are broken: They are tempo monstrosities that are nigh on impossible to stop IN A FAVORABLE MANNER.

Copter may still be right. Some lists even run two. I took it out because it's so vulnerable to so many kinds of removal, and put in Matter Reshaper #3, for now. Reshaper is usually straight-up card advantage, where Copter is conditional filtering. Zhalfirin Void makes me feel less committed to the 1-of flier. I've also recently seen a Copter-free list running a singleton Endbringer , which might even be better, though I don't love the casting cost.

This list is a living document for me, and reflects the state of my build as I play it 9 rounds a week at a large and competitive LGS in my hometown.
