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.

Drop all 4x Breaking and all 4x Mind Sculpt. By doing so, you free up 8x slots. Add 2x more Jace's Phantasm, 4x Wight of Precinct Six, and 2x more lands. One of which should be Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth -- which enables you to tap your Ghost Quarter and Polluted Delta as swamps. This will help fix your mana curve and make a beat down path more realistic for you. I've found the best mill decks were beatdown decks first, mill second. The combined pressure was too much for the opponent to handle. I'd still recommend dropping Grave Titan for Consuming Aberration. Then you can cast a bunch of tiny spells to still mill them out. Another consideration -- you should probably be at 24 lands to be honest, and potentially more than that since you're running a playset of Ghost Quarter. If you notice your land drops to be an issue, consider Drowned Catacomb as replacement for whatever you feel is slowing you down.

Wight of Precinct Six this card is great!!! Yea the only difference is Consuming Aberration has that enchantment. Def will consider this thanks!

Personally, I would cut white for black...


I am assuming your wincon is mill. White is only adding in some stall in the form of pacifism and lifegain. HOWEVER, your only mill is Tome Scour, Mind Sculpt and Traumatize. If you are using the former 2 earlier in the game, it makes traumatize significantly worse later on in the game (as their library already has less cards). Black gives you a sweet and cheap mill spell in the form of Mind Funeral. If you splash black, You gain removal over just letting their creatures sit on the board. This can be simple stuff like: Doom Blade, Terror, Go for the Throat, Murder, etc. If you want life gain, black gives you Crypt Incursion. Also, you can get sweet alternate wincons with cards like Consuming Aberration.

Phenax, God of Deception and Consuming Aberration get stupid together. (:

meant Wight of Precinct Six-the spelling always throws me off. He is a mini Consuming Aberration

If your going for mill, then I would add in cards like Leyline of the Void, Visions of Beyond, Memory Erosion, Chancellor of the Spires, Diluvian Primordial, Consuming Aberration, Geth, Lord of the Vault, Havengul Lich, and Rise of the Dark Realms. They help build off that strategy and allow you to use your opponent's graveyards as tools. I see that you are running Propaganda. If you want to build upon that, I would suggest adding in Ghostly Prison, Collective Restraint, Isperia, Supreme Judge, and Glacial Chasm so that it is a pain to attack you. I would also cut back on your into play tapped lands. They help with color fixing but slow you down. If you want some good (cheaper) duels, I would sugget adding in Glacial Fortress, Drowned Catacomb, and Isolated Chapel for some of them. I think that should help you a little bit for now.

Keening Stone is way too expensive! Most of the cards in this deck are under 3 mana. 5 + to activate is robbery.

Lazav, Dimir Mastermind this is interesting, will consider this thanks! I thought Consuming Aberration makes up for this for by the time its out its around a 20/20 which is going to be stronger than any creature in opp graveyard
