Consuming Aberration

Creature — Horror

Consuming Aberration's power and toughness are each equal to the number of cards in your opponents' graveyards.

Whenever you cast a spell, each opponent reveals cards from the top of his or her library until he or she reveals a land card, then puts those cards into his or her graveyard.

iriveanu on First Standard Deck since Odyssey

23 minutes ago

Hello! Been a long time since last play.

i'm thinking of building a standard deck with cards i currently have :

Land: 4xDrowned Catacomb 2xRogue's Passage 4xWatery Grave 8xIsland 8xSwamp

Creature:4xJace's Phantasm 4xWight of Precinct Six 4xConsuming Aberration 2xAvatar of Woe 4xHedron Crab

Planeswalker: 2xJace, Memory Adept

Sorcery: 4xMind Sculpt 4xBreaking / Entering 4xMemory Sluice 4xTome Scour 4xMind Funeral

Instant: 4xCounterspell 4xPsychic Strike 4xDimir Charm 4xThought Scour

Artifact: 2xTrepanation Blade 2xGrafdigger's Cage 4xCodex Shredder 1xKeening Stone 2xChalice of the Void

Total 91 cards. I would like to build my deck with 60ish cards if possible, which cards should i add/throw? As you can see, the theme about this deck is about milling and using creatures to synergize with milling theme..

Any feedback or suggestions will be very well appreciated. Thanks!

What I forgot to mention in my last post was maybe in addition to the "something old, something new", we could have a mechanic that is online once certain number of cards of a specific type or not is in your graveyard, which pitch spells would synergize with. Madness would also synergize with that.

RussischerZar, There was one post where MaRo said that he wished they had made the nephilim legendary, but that it was extremely difficult to design a card that utilizes four colors but not a fifth. (Except I think hybrid costs could fix that issue!)

When I said counts cards in graveyard, I wasn't referring strictly to a Consuming Aberration effect. I was more referring to an effect that works like threshold or delve in which the cards get better if you have lots of cards in the graveyard.

The only cards that were wedge colored were the commanders themselves, so I'm optimistic that wedges haven't been done before from the eyes of the design team as well.
And thank you! I can't take credit for the Huey Dewey Louie speculation though, that's all because of kbarnhart. I just wanted a post to put all the best ideas IMO.

Lord007, I agree, fetches and wedges would be a total success in the WotC history book in the category of "what do the people want?". Flanking, horsemanship, and banding have been circulating as possible old things theyd bring back, but I don't know if people have been asking for ANY of those (except maybe horsemanship).

How exactly are you gonna buff Consuming Aberration to combo with Phenax, God of Deception ?

you need Mind Sculpt . Mind Funeral , Glimpse the Unthinkable

I would cut Pharika's Chosen and Frostburn Weird since they don't benefit nor contribute to milling at all.

The only difference is that the copies of Last Thoughts count as spells being cast which is important if you are trying to trigger Consuming Aberration

Consuming Aberration is a $4 card. Prices aren't strictly determined by competitive value, and I think that both CA and this obliterator prove it. This thing is a casual all star, and everyone who plays black wants 1 or 4 of them.

In the last few months, they were bought out as well, which drove the price up a ton, and until that group puts them back on the market, they will stay at their very high price. Even after that, they'll still be expensive because casual fans love it.

Like the last poster said, cut down on the variety of cards and go for 4x or 3x of the most important ones. I'd have 4x Thought Scour and maybe Memory Sluice as well. Very cheap mill leading to huge creatures, definitely 4x Consuming Aberration or Nighthowler . I never attack with my 20/20 Aberrations, I just cast Rite of Consumption or Essence Harvest on them and it's game over with no attack necessary.

With cards like Consuming Aberration , Jace's Phantasm , Wight of Precinct Six , Mortivore , and Keening Stone I want to keep as many cards in the graveyard as possible.
