Eldrazi Tron. A deck that for some reason has never gotten the respect it deserves, something that has been common of various Tron decks in Modern's past. I've heard plenty of well-respected players have opinions on Eldrazi Tron that vary from the deck being "bad" to "unplayable," but these players misunderstand the role Eldrazi Tron plays in Modern's current metagame. The deck looks straightforward enough, so what's with the misconceptions?
The three Urza's Tron lands are easily the most powerful part of the deck and always have been. When they're online they lead to incredible draws that are difficult for any deck to keep up with, but frankly, most games you won't have the luxury of gaining obscene amounts of mana from the deck's namesake lands. Many people are afraid of these games and think the deck has "clunky" draws when Tron isn't online. In reality these are the majority of games. You need to embrace them. You shouldn't be throwing hands out aggressively to try to get Tron online because Eldrazi Tron can function perfectly well without it. The fact is most real games of Magic you play are ugly with both decks not having their best opening hands or draws, and Eldrazi Tron can win a majority of its games without the Tron lands active, and you shouldn't be scared of not having all three of them.
