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.

Aqueous Form is/was there because making a big fat Consuming Aberration unblockable, and then doing a one hit KO on an opponent, but i see now that it's a card that is not needed anymore. Sensei's Divining Top is an awesome card, but god it's expensive....

Increasing Confusion and Consuming Aberration maybe?

I think your deck leans more towards the increasing confusion though. It can be played early for some mill then later for tons more mill.

Wondering if this would be a good mill deck or is there anything else better that I can add in to replace the cards in here?? Mill Deck and I only have creatures in here to defend here and there except for Consuming Aberration its to attack or just to mill you for more cards

Sword of the Paruns is another great Phenax add. While the equipped creature will lose the +0/+2 by the time the ability resolves, it allows you to untap it for AND gives all creatures that are tapped prior +0/+2. Losing +0/+2 on a Consuming Aberration isn't a huge deal in the long run when you can untap it for .

Aqueous Form is a lot better than Artful Dodge as it gives your creature unblockable for he rest of the game. The only scenario in which Artful Dodge is better is when you want to give different creatures unblockable, and you only target Consuming Aberration.

With all those artifacts, I could see you benefiting from an Academy Ruins. Maybe upgrade some of those slow lands for an Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth or a Tainted Isle?

Sword of Body and Mind can be a convenient surgical instrument.

Sadistic Sacrament is also conditionally more powerful than Grasp. The caveat is that you can't use what you lobotomize.

Memory Erosion over Jace's Erasure.

I'd cut the Phalanx for Dimir's best creature, period: Consuming Aberration. He is a massive horror that feeds on brains and memories. An enormous, answer on sight, parasite that stalks the halls of Circu's asylum.

Some good draw for this theme is Syphon Mind.

+1 for the great deck. I always love looking at decks that stick to a strong theme!

Better than Army of the Damned is Rise of the Dark Realms, for all the creatures you kill.

Nighthowler is versatile

Control Magic is like another Soul Ransom

Rogue's Passage lets you swing with creatures you steal.

As far as win conditions, Consuming Aberration is a huge hitter in your colors. Plus it feeds Rise.

What you really really need is:

  • Archive Trap Heavviest Hitter overall, hits nearly every time for 0 casting cost because of fetchlands or your own ghost quaters,...

  • Visions of Beyond you get to play with Power Nine! enough said :) really really helps you advancing card advantage and come back from discard spells or in the mid- to lategame

  • Crypt Incursion to stay alive.

I would also reccomend:

As you dont run any Fetchlands Hedron Crab is probably not worth it unfortunally as it is the best turn one play by far.

I would reccomend to Cut Traumatize and Haunting Echoes as at cmc of 5 you will not likely be able to cast them. Once you get to 5 Mana your opponents libary should be to small for Traumatize to have a major impact... Same goes for Consuming Aberration
