Consuming Aberration

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.

A playset of Consuming Aberration would work very well with this deck Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker would also go well.

I guess I would suggest adding in more Reanimate cards like Victimize , Zombify , etc. Then I would add in cards like Lazav, Dimir Mastermind , Maelstrom Pulse , and Biomantic Mastery . If you want to get more cards into your graveyard, I would suggest adding in Entomb , Golgari Thug , Golgari Grave-Troll , etc. That mechanic in particular is great for a deck like this. Then you could add in more opponent mill cards like Consuming Aberration and the like.

@scrotality - Thanks!Nope, not Standard (hence Mark of Eviction and Kami of the Crescent Moon )Until very recently I had Underworld Dreams and Bloodchief Ascension in the maybe board.I felt that Underworld Dreams was too mana intensive to be worth the mere 1 damage it provides. The 4-point life swing of Bloodchief Ascension is sick but it felt too unreliable, first requiring multiple of the core cards on the field and then requiring discard (not as guaranteed as card draw).

Mindcrank and Consuming Aberration are no good as this deck doesn't aim to mill accept as a tertiary win condition. I will probably board in Jace's Erasure for games that go long where I am in danger of self-milling.

interesting build. I've always loved draw/damage decks. is this standard only? if not then maybe Underworld Dreams , Mindcrank , and Bloodchief Ascension . oh and Consuming Aberration .

Helm of Obedience with your Leyline of the Void is an infinite mill combo

Glimpse the Unthinkable is one of my favorite cards, along with Mind Sculpt /Thought Scour

Phyrexian Arena makes for a good additional draw engine

and cards like Nighthowler , Consuming Aberration , Wight of Precinct Six , Lazav, Dimir Mastermind ,Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker are some cood cards too

+1 from me

Some fun suggestions I have are as follows: In my opinion you have too many ways to mill your opponant but not enough ways to survive. For example Jace, Memory Adept will mill your opponant just fine on his own. You might be able to replace cards like Mind Sculpt with something more meaningful like Divination or Devour Flesh

Have you considered Consuming Aberration ? THAT card is fun. Mill is a terrible archtype but when you have a Consuming Aberration and then play a Phenax, God of Deception You can literally "one shot" your opponant. Just tap your aberration to mill them for however many cards are in thier graveyard. maybe add a Liliana Vess or Disciple of Deceit To make getting your phenax + Aberration combo easier.

If you're only using Dream Twist for low mana mill than perhaps give Tome Scour a go, I use both in my deck, but Dream Twist is essentially there because Consuming Aberration is a main card for me
