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

Hey man I think Altar of the Brood is way too slow to mill an opponent on its own. If milling is your thing, there's more efficient cards out there!
Jace's Erasure, Memory Erosion, Hedron Crab, Jace, Memory Adept, Trepanation Blade help with permanent milling from the top of my head and if you want to keep it mono-blue. Also, Jace's Phantasm goes very well with the theme and as an alternative option.

You need a way to do damage to your opponent. Right now all you have is Geth's Verdict, and attaching it to scepter is extremely inefficient. I'd advise Consuming Aberration because you're running Mind Sculpt and using scepter and Silence you can stop them from casting anything after turn 3.

Very nice deck! I run an almost exact deck.
I used to run Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker. I switched it out for Thought Scour as it procs Consuming Aberration and is a cheap activation of Duskmantle Guildmage. On top of that it draws you into more gas.
I'd also -1 Grisly Spectacle so that you can add a +3 of Thought Scour. GS is good, but it relies on your opponent to play hefty creatures to really be effective for its mana cost. I'd keep it to a silver bullet copy, since your destroying their library anyways.

Hi Mikey2141! Thank you! I had Consuming Aberration in this deck at one point. Together with Phenax, God of Deception and a Thassa, God of the Sea to make it unblockable. The few times I did win with the old build I won through damage. Thing is people figured out fairly quickly to take out the Aberration and I was left with nothing to mill or to hit (the gods being no creatures and therefore relatively harmless). So I decided to go all in on the Mill strategy. Long story short: both your suggestions have merit but both are slowing this deck down severely in what it wants to do! Mill out the opponent before your life goes to 0...

No Undead Alchemist? It plus Thousand-Year Elixir is not infinite but it sure can cripple, if not fully mill, most decks! (With phenax out of course) I run these excellent combos in my phenax mill. Undead Alchemist+Thousand-Year Elixir also combos off even better with your Intruder Alarm

May I suggest Consuming Aberration for a five-drop slot, versatile and it's a board presence that eats decks and takes the attention away from what you're doing with the cards in hand. It's a scarier Hedron Crab. Also, I'd sideboard Extract from Darkness, simply because I like to get something out of milling the opponent cause it makes the game more dynamic (More fun for the poor guy losing to a mill deck).

You are assuming that the opponent's deck will have 10 or more creatures. If this is really competitive, then you have to take in account that many modern decks will not have that many creatures or have creatures at all. You are then relying on your graveyard to have 10 creatures.
Consuming Aberration is a more versatile card since it does not rely on creatures, just cards.
