Sky Scourer Discussion

I recommend Sky Scourer over Kozilek's Sentinel - the flying is far more important the extra points of toughness; you want to be all about getting damage through, not blocking! I'd also recommend Reaver Drone over the Sludge Crawler since he's more aggressive. You don't want to be paying mana to make your guy bigger when you could be playing another creature instead. You could try to have both for a more aggressive curve, though. Flayer Drone is also worth including, he gives you some extra reach even if your opponent has the board locked down.

Forerunner of Slaughter is better than sludge crawler in every way, Kozilek's Sentinel is good for aggro, Outnumber and Ruinous Path are good removal for the deck, Eldrazi Mimic is fantastic for the deck, as is Matter Reshaper. Barrage Tyrant is a good non-combat wincon. Thought-Knot Seer is a good potential sideboard Bearer of Silence is very good for aggro/control. Sky Scourer is a flying kozilek's sentinel. Kozilek's Return is a must have in your colors in standard. Ways to proc its flashback as well as good game enders are Bane of Bala Ged and an Endless One for at least 7. As far as lands, your wastes are, well, wastes. Mirrorpool is unnecessary, you can run Sanctum of Ugin and possibly Shrine of the Forsaken Gods, maybe even Sea Gate Wreckage instead. Reality Hemorrhage is fine to proc colorless spells and all, but when Shock is legal, just run shock. Eldrazi Obligator is a Turn Against on a body, but I wouldn't recommend running either. Both Witness the End and Dutiful Return are bad. You don't need them. Phyrexia is right, Panharmonicon is useless, there's no need to run it. I'm sure there is more that you can edit but that's all I see at the moment.

Honestly, I'm not sure where or why Smuggler's Copter fits into this deck. I assume so that you can get some flying into the deck besides Bearer of Silence. Sky Scourer and/or Silent Skimmer would be better, I think, than Smuggler's Copter that also ties up one of your creatures. I get the appeal of the copter, I just don't think it meshes well with your current deck.
Maybe Night Market Lookout (I know, it's not eldrazi) to crew the copter would be better? Good value in that card for crewing.
Looks like a fun deck to play, though!
Best regards, Brian

Hello, deck looks good but I would make some changes like getting rid of Corrupted Crossroads unless u want to play some creature for waste and play it only for the second part is not worth i think cuz u can just sacrifice tokens.Next u can reduce Eldrazi Skyspawner to 3 should be enough and add some Ruination Guide i play 4 myself its so powerfull card since u play all devoid cretures for example instead of Fathom Feeder I dont like him anyway.Also u can add more mono Black creatures like Sludge Crawler or Sky Scourer or Culling Drone instead of Salvage Drone cuz u dont need to draw cards and discard after so 2x Sludge Crawler and 2x Sky Scourer will work better. As Sorcs go I would put both Ruinous Path and Transgress the Mind to sideboard unless u play against Plainswalkers a lot much better is Murder since its instant and its cheaper on mana and Complete Disregard also instant cuz sorcs are slow for my taste its can cost u game sometimes. This is my opiion so u dont have to take it seriously its completely up to u anyways good luck with this deck i love all eldrazi decks

Weew. Let's see what suggestions I can come up with now. So here's some Eldrazi to consider, depending on your deck's strategy:
- Sludge Crawler
- Reaver Drone
- Hedron Crawler yes, he's not an Eldrazi, but he produces mana
- Reality Smasher
- Thought-Knot Seer (if you can afford these, that would be great)
Also, try getting more of these:
Some spells to throw into the mix:
Also for lands, since this is mostly mono , you can get away with running 18-22 lands, depending on your mana curve.
As for what to cut, I'd advise most of the 3-drop or higher Eldrazi. Modern is all about efficiency and speed, so you might not have the chance to get out the bigger Eldrazi.
As far as deck goes, you'll be fine if you try to implement most of these changes. I'd advise taking the time to write a detailed description for the deck, as it really helps others to know what you're trying to do. I know it's quite a bit to take in, so feel free to take your time with the deck.
Hope this helps!

Vile Aggregate should for sure be a 4 of. Tide Drifter isn't doing anything, you're aggressive. Bonus toughness doesn't help. Bearer of Silence is an absurd card, and lets you play removal in creature form. It should be a mainboard 4 of. In that vein, Wasteland Strangler should be present. Salvage Drone is not particularly good. Reaver Drone is a better aggro creature than Slaughter Drone. You should be playing Flayer Drone since it's hard to block, and and pings your opponent. Dominator Drone has a habit of underperforming, 2 or 3 of might be better. (end of the drone rant) Sky Scourer is an almost direct upgrade from Mist Intruder. Nobody remembers that Dust Stalker exists, and you can punish them for it. You can probably safely play 20 lands since your curve is super low. You can also safely play some number of copies of Painful Truths so that you keep having more Eldrazi to play.

Dominator Drone seems like a good idea, but may need to find room for him.
I'll see if I can find room for Dimensional Infiltrator, Eldrazi Obligator and Bearer of Silence, since they do outclass my current 2-drops to an extent. May cut 2-3 Tide Drifters and maybe 1-2 Sky Scourers.
