Processor is creature class exclusive to Eldrazi and is associated with Ulamog's brood. It was introduced alongside Scion in Battle for Zendikar.

All Processors have an ability that requires you to put your opponent's exiled cards into their graveyard for some effect.[1] Of the eleven creatures, eight use one exiled card at a time and three use two. The mechanic is largely in blue-black, with one green card. Processor Assault is a related sorcery that uses the same mechanical cost, and is the only processing ability in red.

During design, this mechanic was known as "digest" or "process".[2]
