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.

Consuming Aberration Discussion

Jace's Erasure and Riddlekeeper are both good, Visions of Beyond is basically an Ancestral Recall. You should play blue black if you can, there are a few cards to consider that take those colors: Mind Funeral Mind Grind Consuming Aberration Glimpse the Unthinkable Breaking / Entering and some dual lands.

but the other problem with Consuming Aberration is that once he's out he will most likely die before you get to use Phenax's ability.

This is a pretty serious mill deck, so so you think that Startled Awake might be too slow? I have been wanting to make a mill deck for so long just have not gotten around to it. What do you think about self mill, with Laboratory Maniac. Not great in this deck b/c of the 'opponents graveyard' on Consuming Aberration but I think it would be a fun deck.

This deck is ridiculous. only savages would want to play something this stupid. "Clone your creature, kill your creature, play Consuming Aberration and clone it a few times, play a spell, oh look at that, nobody has a library any more." Fuck that shit. I will kill a sacrifice. a goat every day just to not have to play against this bullshit. I WILL RAID THE PENTAGON FOR DRONE COORDINATES AND BOMB THE HOUSES OF THOSE WHO PLAY RHIS FUCKING DECK.

7/10, Deck is okay I guess.

Personally, I think the commander is a little of. Phenax, God of Deception does something similar and awards you for playing big (usually undercosted) walls that don't really attack to stem bleeding from the fast decks and serve as alternate win conditions. It makes things like that Consuming Aberration get insanely large (and out of control) and things like Tree of Perdition awesome (even if it says as a 0/13). I think that the commander you currently have should be in the deck, but perhaps not the leader :).

Also, Keening Stone has always been an awesome card to me. I would love to see a crazy person run it.

Consuming Aberration and Szadek, Lord of Secrets both really want to be in this deck. Traumatize would be an absurd Turn 5 play, and Increasing Confusion is an excellent late-game mana sink.

Hi! Thank you again for commenting on my deck. I figured I would take a look at a few of your decks too. I figured this one was similar enough to my deck that I could give some advice on it, mind you none of the cards i'm going to suggest to you are in my deck. Dream Twist is good, as it has flashback, but Tome Scour takes out two addition cards for the same mana cost, and in total for twice the mana, you only get one more discard from a Dream Twist, as well as being able to make Jace's Phantasm a 5/5 on turn 2 if you have two of it. and Evolving Wilds is only good in multicoloured decks, as it can only fetch basic lands, so you might as well put in 4 islands instead. Summary Dismissal would be good in this deck, being a mill deck, and is a good thing to play on your opponent's turn after they kill your (for example) Consuming Aberration. Also, Dismal Backwater is strictly better and costs less money than Drowned Catacomb. Also, Countersquall is always fun to have, also I would consider adding in a few Swamps, and lands in general, maybe instead of a Jace, Memory Adept and your Archive Trap, seeing as it isn't often an opponent searches their library, especially if there's barely any cards left in it. Basic mill cards like Millstone also are great. Anyways, good luck!
