Vapor Snag Discussion
2 days ago
I see you've got Inspiring Call in the sideboard. Given the very low AVG CMC here, I suggest moving at least 1x into the mainboard, dropping a Vapor Snag or Pongify for it/them. The added bonus of it granting indestructible to your counters creatures makes it versatile, too.
While I love Pongify and Rapid Hybridization, I'm not sure you actually need blue here. There are lots of green spells that enter or create +1/+1 counters to trigger Hardened Scales, and Beast Within is so versatile, even at 3CMC it's arguably better than its blue counterparts. Of course, it would mean shifting toward a more aggro, less controlling strategy. The real upside, and the reason I'm broaching the idea, is because it will make the faster. Running mono-color means zero mana-fixing needed.

The main issue is that Vapor Snag returns a creature to it's owner's hand, whereas Condemn tucks it away instead. The life change is irrelevant since the deck has no way of winning by damage deal, and while Condemn does require the opponent to be attacking with the creature, unless we already have a Nevermore effect naming that card a creature that has been bounced could just be played again next turn. Condemn, while more situational in when you can use it, is much better at actually making the creature stay gone.

look up some of the dimir cards that have transmute. Muddle the Mixture can be used to search your deck for liliana's caress. since your win condition is damage through discard, add in a few Megrim, a bit worse on the mana curve, but it is your win scenario. you need to get it in your hand.

Made a list for you of things is would try. I have played both Tron and Bant versions of Eldrazzi. if you want to be competitive in modern you need efficiency in the spells you cast, Eldrazzi tron decks can play Thought-Knot Seer on turn 2 and smasher on 3. Plus many other decks in modern spit out Gurmag Angler or Tasigur, the Golden Fang on turn 2. You need cheap removal. Vapor Snag is great vs gurmag/tasigur, Fatal Push is great vs many other decks, but bad vs eldrazi or any creatureless combo deck like storm or ad nauseum. Fathom Feeder is a great card too as suggested above. Elder Deep-Fiend is also a very good card.
example list of what i would run. just tagged things you dont have in the above list
4x Eldrazi Temple
4x Polluted Delta
2x Watery Grave
4x Eldrazi Skyspawner
4x Fathom Feeder
2x Mist Intruder
2x Blight Herder or more Smashers
3x Oblivion Sower
1x Ulamog, the Ceaseless Hunger
4x Relic of Progenitus / Tormod's Crypt
4x Vapor Snag
