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 their library until they reveal a land card, then puts those cards into their graveyard.

I don't know the exact circumstances but it was me and Dude left from a 4 man EDH pod and Dude had a Consuming Aberration and a Fleet Swallower. Aberration was very large and I had finally gotten rid of the Swallower after he attacked with it a couple times. I was playing an early version of my Eldrazi deck. I had just got Endbringer out and it was doing work! Drawing me cards on my turn and tapping down dude's Aberration on his upkeep. Endbringer ultimately won me the game. Now at my LGS, the winner of the second game always got a cool promo card. The one that was offered up that night ended being Endbringer. What a coincidence right?

Consuming Aberration:Many years ago, my best friends introduced me to MTG. I knew my father had the book Arena on his shelf, so I mentioned it to him. He got so excited when I said that my friends taught me how to play, so he immediately started digging through his closet for his old collection. He had been playing since Alpha and I am told he had a few lotuses. Unfortunately, as he dug about, he remembered that he had to sell it all in 97, when he had a baby on the way. So he took me to Walmart to get some precons. We had the choice between the Gruul or Dimir decks from gatecrash, so he grabbed the former and I grabbed the latter. Consuming Aberration was the foil headliner of the deck. Ever since then, if Ibuild a deck that can fit it, I put in as many as I can.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer: When C13 came out, one of my friends cashed in on the True-Name Nemesis situation. He bought a couple of the decks, sold the rares, and handed me one of what was left. I built around Nekusar, because he seemed a lot more interesting than Jeleva. That was the start of my EDH obsession.

And finally, one of the Phyrexian Islands from Mirrodin Besieged. It looked so stinking cool and when my friends called it Phyrexian, a word I hadn't heard before, I had to know more. I drove head first into the lore and cards, rushing to my LGS to grab a playset of promo Sheoldreds (she was only a dollar or two at the time) and trading for as many Phyrexian cards as I could. And I never looked back. It will always be my favorite plane/set/flavor/style, and in many ways, my playstyle has reflected Phyrexian ideology ever since then.

I am a proud Mimeoplasm player too! It's an awesome build you have here. Couldn't have done it better myself. I have a few different versions of the Mimeoplasm, but one of my favorites is a Mill/Copy deck. It works like a charm, but it is on a strict budget. If you wanna check it out, you can go see it on my page. Some of the win-con in it are Szadek, Lord of Secrets, Consuming Aberration, and Phenax, God of Deception.

Consuming Aberration can help mill and is a great target for the ability-consuming half of Mimeoplasm. I know it only mills your opponent, but it is dreadfully powerful nonetheless.
