Quote from deaddrift »Huge fan of Go for the Throat as Path #5, Spellskite can't redirect it, and Affinity is a good match anyway. I would not run Doom Blade with Tasigur, Kalitas, Bob, Siege Rhino, and Angler all significant in the larger meta. Definitely agree that Wastes in the main is worth a look.

http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/esper-eldrazi-modern/ You can find my list here, with a lot of info on how my matchups have been.
As you can see, my list is slightly different from the classic processor list. I'm playing Esper + colourless, a slightly more controlling list. Suggestions are welcome!

Long time lurker, first time poster (here)
I've been wanting to play this deck for a while now, and I have a few questions to help me get started:
1. What are the essentials to the deck? I.E. What should I be picking up first?
2. Are there any synergies I won't/don't see at first? What should I look for in an opening hand?
3. Can we run something like Rest in Peace over Relic? Or is Relic's card draw too invaluable?
As an aside, I'd also like to say that I think Distended Mindbender might be able to help this deck vs other decks that go big, like Tron, Ponza, or Titanshift. I might just be wrong though, so let me know what you think! Can't wait to get started and get off of my budget deck
