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

on Deck out?
1 week ago
Hey there! Cool deck idea you have here! However, it doesn't look like this deck has a coherent game plan. You say that you want to mill your opponent out, but only 10 cards in your deck actually mill your opponent. Traditional Mill decks are generally Blue and Black, and run cards like Mind Sculpt, Consuming Aberration, Fraying Sanity, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Phenax, God of Deception, Mind Funeral, Hedron Crab, etc.

From my experience with mill Consuming Aberration and Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker are way too slow for modern. Also the infinite combo seems weak also. I like Hedron Crab, Fatal Push, Visions of Beyond and Crypt Incursion instead.

Yeah, people hate the card. lol
Could you guys recommend any single-card win-cons for this kind of deck?
The best that I've seen so far are Exsanguinate (ramp helps), Keening Stone, Rise of the Dark Realms, Increasing Confusion, Consuming Aberration, Zombie Infestation, Bloodchief Ascension, Expropriate Psychosis Crawler and Army of the Damned.
Tunnel Vision also seemed solid, but it's not a single-card win-con.
There are some other cards that function basically the same as the ones above, but their cmc is higher, so I didn't list them.

Intruder Alarm is pretty nice with Phenax and the ability to place creatures and at the very least it can limit your opponents from Swinging, while you get to make another creature every turn.
Lazav, Dimir Mastermind is brilliant in any mill deck, especially one that could recur him.
Sewer Nemesis, like Consuming Aberration, won't make a very good zombie but he gets just as big in 1v1, and still pretty huge in multiplayer... plus you can use your own yard if your opponents don't have one.
True-Name Nemesis Would appreciate the 4/4 body.
I would also consider Mesmeric Orb and, if you can stomach the cost, Ensnaring Bridge is useful too. Both of these cards protect you and let you rely on your Scarab Clock instead of dealing direct damage.

Arcane Adaptation does change creature types in your graveyard. If you controlled Gisa and Geralf (or some other effect that allowed you to cast creatures from your graveyard) you would be able to pay to cast Consuming Aberration using Rooftop Storm.

I would consider The Scarab God and Mesmeric Orb. The Scarab provides you a nice little adjustable clock and triggers Ludviec pretty reliably and The Orb amps up your mill game and can be recurred easily with one of your commanders.
Mindslaver adds a neat shift to the political climate in EDH. Make your enemies friend into his enemy.
Faithless Looting is good. Also there are a lot of really good tutors out there I would look into acquiring,
And you shouldn't really consider Mindcrank to combo solely with Bloodchief Ascension. If you ran Duskmantle Guildmage too it might be worth consideration but it would still be a dead card 9 times out of 10 unlike The Orb.

Barsan, Consuming Aberration isn't a Zombie, and through testing I discovered that having it die due to a Kozilek or Ulamog shuffle is no fun. Intruder Alarm kills the deck if I don't get good draws. Never tried Sewer Nemesis or Thousand-Year Elixir, but I intend to sometime. Thanks!
