Ooh those are good options, thanks legendofa! Maybe Ruination Guide could be Quagsire? Or Victreebel

Is there maybe space in here for a Tentacruel or... I'm not sure what Ruination Guide would be...

Check out my Eldrazi Hand-control Midrange C/U/B deck:

Transdimensional Thought-warp

What is the point of milling in your deck? Certainly that isn't your win condition is it? If so, I would get rid of all of the milling and try to make it more aggressive with more ramp with Eldrazi Skyspawner in the place of Ruination Guide. I don't think you'll win with so many weak Eldrazi cards.

So far I am making a Dimir-Colorless Eldrazi thought-warping deck.

Thought-warping is just my fanciful term for the mechanic of looking at the other player's hand and exiling cards. I have 14 cards for this.

I need help with the mana curve on my Eldrazi!

What Eldrazi cards should I use or remove?

What are some good Dimir cards I'm missing?

Should I use 4x Burnished Hart in the place of 4x Hedron Crawler?

I have 55 cards. Need recommendations for other cards!

To Remove:

Extricator of Sin  Flip - easily one of the least impactful cards you have and you have 9 to cut.

Abstruse Interference - a 3 mana Force Spike/Mana Tithe seems bad, even if the upside of getting a creature token is there.

Otherworldly Outburst - Like Extricator, a 3/2 is unlikely to make a very big difference.

Isochron Scepter - with 109 cards in deck right now, there are only 4 cards that could even meet the criteria to use this. Fall of the Titans won't work because this won't let you pay alternative costs.

Planar Gate - quite expensive, and while awesome, you would get more mileage out of something like Ugin, the Ineffable, since your Devoid spells are technically colorless. It would benefit your artifacts as well as your Eldrazi. His activated abilities are nothing to sneeze at either.

Rhystic Tutor - someone is going to pay the 2... if you could pick the opponent, different story. As is, it's unlikely to ever resolve. you would be better off with something like Vampiric Tutor if you were going for another tutor effect, but that one is rather pricey as well.

Shard Convergence - Have this be something like Cultivate or Kodama's Reach to make sure that you can cast your spells sooner.

From Beyond - very slow for what it does, not sure it's worth it in the long run.

Endless One - a big mana sink with no keywords or activated abilities is underwhelming.

Desolation Twin - the 10/10 token is only on cast, so if there are any effects that would reanimate it, put it into play, etc that happen to go off, it's just a vanilla 10/10. For 10cmc, you would be better off running either version of Kozilek or Ulamog.

Emrakul's Evangel - I didn't realize that the condition to get the 3/2's required "non-eldrazi" to be sacrificed. It's a non-bo with the deck.

Cards to consider:

Void Attendant - Mana sink to potentially get more scion tokens.

World Breaker - a recurrable threat that exiles permanents.

Essence Depleter - Mana sink to lifegain/drain someone.

Grip of Desolation - 2 for 1 removal spell.

Ruination Guide - Colorless, front-end creature pump.

Sire of Stagnation - Jerk card for jerks. Slows opponents down or exiles their fuel. slows them down either way to give you more time to amass your army.

Spell Shrivel - This is a counterspell that's better than the one you have in the list currently (Abstruse Interference).

Call the Scions - Similar to Awakening Zone and From Beyond it gives you 2x 1/1's for 3cmc all at once.

Cards to Add:

Herald of Kozilek - cost reduction for your deck.

Swarm Surge - Colorless creature pump and First Strike.

Smothering Abomination - Card draw for sac'ing a token on upkeep.

Brood Butcher - turns your tokens into removal for BG to -2/-2 something.

Deepfathom Skulker - lets you draw for each attacking creature you control that connects with a player.

Cool deck Idea, for the sideboard, to make things more simple, I would jut have like 40 Ruination Guide, and 20+ Reality Smasher or Eldrazi Aggressor (budget), for a bunch of hasty 45/5's, also if have the mana to activate spawnsires ability then you probably have enough to fuel 10 Eldrazi Obligator as well and beat people with a sort of insurrection effect

Ulamog's brood is: Benthic Infiltrator, Conduit of Ruin, Cryptic Cruiser, Drowner of Hope (as it is said in many places that Ulamogs brood moves through water easily.), Eyeless Watcher, Oblivion Sower, Ruination Guide, Vile Aggregate. and Wasteland Strangler (look to the left of the creature and you can see it's mask), I am also fairly certain that Brood Butcher is a part of Ulamogs brood as well.

Kozilek's lineage is: Dimensional Infiltrator, Immobilizer Eldrazi(note the eyes), Slaughter Drone(also has eyes on joints), Stalking Drone, and Walker of the Wastes.

Nest Invader is the only member of Emrakul's brood in the list here.
