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.

Consuming Aberration Discussion

Hey thanks for the input Scion_of_Darkness. That's actually a really great suggestion as a decent portion of my milling comes from that similar line of text in addition to Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker - such as Consuming Aberration and Mind Funeral

I'll do some playtesting and see how they fit in!

Consuming Aberration is a solid, budget mill card. I also like Aqueous Form for Zur because it scries.

Have you considered Consuming Aberration as a big beat stick in case you run out of gas? Maybe Conjurer's Closet to bounce ETB effects on cards like Wall of Lost Thoughts , Sepulchral Primordial , or Manic Scribe ?

Love your deck I have had so many iterations on the mill reanimator zombie deck and am quite surprised this is your first. I just posted my The Greatest Zombie Apocalypse of Them All and they are definitely on the right idea for the essence of what zombie is all about. I go deep into the Vengeful Dead strategy so not as much mill but we are brothers in brains.

The interesting part is you aren't running Phenax, God of Deception where as I'm running that as my only mill condition. If you look at the numbers though, it is very effective to go ahead with a typical strategy of just generating bazonkers zombies and then using the phenax ability to apply pressure in the case of a stalemate... Phenax is great too if you are running Consuming Aberration and in no case would not be running it

The deck looks really neat has great flavor, which is my favorite thing about nicol bloas.

Biggest issue I see with the deck is hat you have a really high average cmc but not a whole lot of ramp. I'd recommend cutting any 4+ drops that your on the fence about to work in more ramp. The other signets in your color, Talisman of Dominance , and Talisman of Indulgence are good cheap options.

The biggest cuts i'd recommend would probly be Thousand-Year Storm (sweet card, but wont be able to do much in this deck), Consuming Aberration (not enough mill synergy to warrant him), Dismiss into Dream (really neat card, but too costly too slow of removal in this deck), Blatant Thievery (reluctantly, you got other steal effects, and this is costly with a lot of blue), and maybe ribbons of the night (just feels like it costs more than it should).

Since your deck has a lot of color devotion, you might also consider some cards that produce treasure tokens like Spell Swindle , Captain Lannery Storm , or maybe Tezzeret the Schemer .

I hope this was helpful, best of luck.

Other than being tutorable by Buried Alive , nothing about Vannifar is better than Birthing Pod . But with a commander like Muldrotha, who wouldn't want more pods in their deck? I'd probably take out Consuming Aberration . From what I can tell, your deck doesn't get much out from milling your opponent. I just remembered one more card I would suggest: Mesmeric Orb . It mills you a ton and does it for free, although if your meta has a lot of graveyard decks then you may decide against running it.
