Can someone help me out breeding here?

I heard about the new breeding method, but not really sure how to use it to my advantage.

I have a Marill with three 31 IVs. I have a Ditto with 4 31 IVs, so 1 is overlapping. Together, I have all of them, but I don't need my Ditto's 31 in Sp Attack.

From what I understand I check the spread of the Pokemon I get, and reject the egg if it's not the one I want. But how is that any different than just going through a bunch of eggs?

Read the topics about how it works.

Basically what happens is that you first test to see which IV spread you'll get from the parents. The first egg generated any time you reset or turn on the game will always have that IV spread. Once you know the IV spread and the inheritance, you can use that to your advantage to get the IV spread you want, assuming you have the Pokemon to pass down those IVs.

Again, read the topics about it for more info.

I did read the topic. And I drew the same conclusion.

I have a Ditto with 4 perfect IVs and a male Marill with 3. Together they cover everything. I don't have any equivalent other parents. how can this possibly benefit me?

If you don't have the right IVs to take advantage of it, it doesn't benefit you at all.
