In terms of card sugestions, processors and exiling are a good combo for modern. I suggest you look at Delay as a counterspell option, and more processors like Wasteland Strangler

Irianne yes, it is. Flickerwisp and Wasteland Strangler are pretty good at killing creatures together.

Hey guys. How is everyone. Thought I'd pop back. Glad to see that Tidehollow Sculler, Wasteland Strangler eventually made some impact on the format.

Let's say I have a Leyline of the Void on the battlefield and I use an ability like Oracle of Dust's ability. Will I be able to use the ability? Or is it that, due to the replacement effect, you can't use the ability because it needs to go to the graveyard in the first place? I'm also asking for interactions between the leyline and Wasteland Strangler and/or Ulamog's Nullifier.

Karten, die fuer Dein Deck interessant sein duerften:

Allgemein gut gegen Counter und Control: Orim's Chant, Silence, Savage Summoning, Autumn's Veil

Anti-meta Tech: Wasteland Strangler, Tocatli Honor Guard, Hushwing Gryff, Pithing Needle, Gaddock Teeg, Containment Priest, Price of Glory, Palace Jailer, World Queller.

Gute Beaters, die mit Deinem Deck synergistisch sind: Grave Titan, Restoration Angel, Creakwood Liege.

Tutoren: Green Sun's Zenith, Buried Alive, Entomb.

Utility: Dryad Arbor, Qasali Pridemage.

Mana-Fixing / Ramp: Murmuring Bosk, Lotus Cobra

Karten, die ich Dir abraten wuerde:

Crop Rotation: kein Gewinn, da Cradle gebannt ist, riskant gegen Counter

Felidar Guardian: schlecht als Beater, macht nichts ausserhalb Deiner Kombo

Leyline of the Void: Du spielst Reanimation, nur gut gegen blitzschnelle Kombos (z.B. Breakfast Hulk), sehr schlechter Top-Deck

Haha thanks. There's really no reason to try and jam Wasteland Strangler into a blue control deck, Ashiok is a good enough wincon on their own.

There are a lot of cards in your deck that exile: Tidehollow Sculler, Spell Queller and Path to Exile. Have you considered Wasteland Strangler?

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.
