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.

You could run Jin-Gitaxias, Core Augur and a Nekusar, the Mindrazer package. The more they draw the more they hurt and the more they discard.

You might check this page for other suggestions

Mind Funeral, Keening Stone, Fleet Swallower, Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker, Mind Grind, Consuming Aberration, Jace's Archivist are your big hitters when it comes to mill.

I would highly recommend including Bloodchief Ascension and Duskmantle Guildmage as win cons.

Phenax, God of Deception is great for Mill, particularly if you have several larger creatures.

Oona, Queen of the Fae does not mill, but it does give you a large number of blockers while removing cards from an opponent's library.

Consuming Aberration provides a huge body that also mills.

The Scarab God - mill is, overall, a pretty weak strategy, so it's good to have some backup win conditions. The Scarab God has good synergy with mill and serves as a creature generator, graveyard hate, top-deck manipulator, and burn spell, all at once.

You will want graveyard hate, such as Tormod's Crypt. Lots of players use graveyard strategies, and you will be directly enabling these players. You'll need some way to mitigate the damage you are doing to yourself.

Animate Dead and other cards that allow you to reanimate your opponents' creatures can be quite nifty.

Curthos on Muldrotha feedback?

Thanks for the quick reply’s guys!

@DutchSnake Essence Warden might be not so usefull in the end indeed, especialy if I’m going to include a Gray Merchant of Asphodel.

@DutchSnake I love toolbox decks and I really like the reanimate theme, but I always have this problem of wanting to do to much in one deck. I'll take another good look on tappedOut aswell for this.

@Nrdman Consuming Aberration was in there for some kind of mill theme together with Geth, Lord of the Vault and Mesmeric Orb, while also being a big sacrifice dude for Jarad, Golgari Lich Lord. But coming to think of it I might be wanting to get to much stuff cramped in here..? Deadeye Navigator sounds like it should be an auto include, never thought of it that you could blink Muldrotha herself. The Acidic Slime and sac outlet I’ll have to take a good look what kind of way I should be heading with this deck.

Hello there!

Consuming Aberration in 7-pod is MONSTROUS :D Rhystic Study and As Foretold is great idea too since You will be playing with 6 opponents. Remember about some "No maximum hand size" effects tho!

Maybe throw in Cabal Coffers and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth too.

I've played mill. Some people get annoyed by it others realize that it doesn't matter that much until you get them down to only a few cards in library. It seems to me that most people start to worry a bit when they have 10-20 cards left.

You basically have to combo off or be getting something out of the milling that you do. You can't just mill people and hope it works. Selective milling can work, some cards let you search an opponents library and remove X cards from the game.

The best mill deck I ever played was The Mimeoplasm. I milled everyone a lot with cards like Consuming Aberration and then I would play mimeo and remove the two biggest threats in my opponents graveyards while giving myself an absolute monster to deal with.

All of your best mill decks are going to have pay offs like that. Milling just feeds them and while it can win the game your real way to win is something like Bloodchief Ascension.

If u want to play Consuming Aberration you need for sure at least 2 copies of Rite of Consumption if u want an enchantament you have to put in Fraying Sanity that is superior. Ghost Quarter aren't good anymore: now you have to play Field of Ruin, you also have to put in 2 more Archive Trap that is very good with Field of Ruin. Now Glimpse the Unthinkable now cost less because was reprinted in mm17 so you can buy it if u can, because it is very strong,a core card. Instead of Jace's Phantasm you can play Manic Scribe. But if you like the combo with Consuming Aberration keep them. But put out Artful Dodge and put in Rite of Consumption, the problems are removals, aberration can be easily removed, so you need some Counters. Hope my advices are useful :). P.S. I made some changes to my deck, if u want to see them ;)

i once had 5 Consuming Aberrations on the board worth 200+ each after kicking Rite of Replication bc we did a 4 player game where we each played two decks. I had fun, they did not. this decklist will increase the 'unfun'.
