Blight Herder

Creature — Eldrazi Processor

When you cast Blight Herder, you may put two cards your opponents own from exile into their owners' graveyards. If you do, put three 1/1 colorless Eldrazi Scion creature tokens onto the battlefield. They have "Sacrifice this creature: Add to your mana pool."

Your only way to cast Thought-Knot Seer and Reality Smasher is Blight Herder right now, which means you're casting 4 and 5 drops on turn 7 at the earliest. I'd add in some lands that create colorless mana. The first ones that stand out looking at it are Corrupted Crossroads and Unclaimed Territory, but you'll need to look through other options.
Your curve also doesn't really start till 3, so I'd add in more 1 and 2 mana spells. Probably removal and discard, look at things like Heartless Act and Thoughtseize. You might also consider Hedron Crawler, which both ramps and provides the colorless mana, but its a weak card in general and might not be good enough.
I'm confused by the Unsummon, Necromentia, Unmoored Ego, and the Ashiok. Your deck generally wants to play a creature on each turn from 3 to 6 so you can kill creatures and then win the game. If you're spending mana casting cards to tear apart your opponent's deck, you're not winning the game. If you want more ways to exile cards, try something like Soul-Guide Lantern or Cling to Dust to help fill out your curve and give you some more utility. You can run the big exile cards in the sideboard for combo matchups. I like the deck.

Notes

  • you can’t have 5 Endbringer, playsets are 4-max. I assume this is a typo?

  • you don’t actually need that many colourless sources. I’d suggest ditching all the Ruins of Oran-Rief and 2 of the Zhalfirin Void and use basics in their place. Add in 2 each of mountain/swamp/island i reckon.

  • I can bring along Blight Herder to replace the weak Mind Raker

I built a displacer deck around Skyclave Apparition, so you may want to try it instead of your Brain Maggot because when Skyclave Apparition dies, your opponent only gets an X/X token does not get their card back, whereas when Brain Maggot dies, your opponent does get their card back.

I would also suggest adding 2 more Concealed Courtyard and 4 Brightclimb Pathway  Flip and removing 3 plains and 3 swamps because starting the game with the right type mana will allow you to play the right card at the rigtht time, which will help you win the game.

Also Blight Herder is a really cool processor card that i didn't know existed, so I may have to play test it to see it's value in my processor deck.

Yes. Blight Herder doesn't specifically say it can only be used on face-up exiled cards, so that means it can be used on any exiled cards.

Is the Blight Herder really allowed to put face down exiled cards from a Bomat Courier on the battlefield to the graveyard!?

Other considerations: Dimensional Infiltrator (potentially dodges removal), Blight Herder , Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver (I would say over Davriel), Relic of Progenitus (neat "cantrip" for this deck), Eternal Scourge . Depending on how you swing it, may allow you to work in Unclaimed Territory , Sea Gate Wreckage , or other fun stuff.
