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.

This time it was on turn 12, you almost had my with Primordial Hydra but I drew into my Consuming Aberration when i had already done 2 Mind Grind's on you that milled 18 cards together. I also had Siren of the Silent Song since turn 3 forcing discard/mill. Win condition takes a while to setup, maybe adding some removal? End Hostilities? Day of Judgment? Retaliate? Wrath of God?

Playtest against your deck without the sideboard: Turn 8 i had Bloodsoaked Champion Consuming Aberration Altar of the Brood Duskmantle Guildmage and 6 mana. You played Avacyn, Angel of Hope that you searched with Time of Need the turn before with your 8 mana, then had no more plays, you had your Phyrexian Unlife on the field so i couldnt kill you. You ended your turn and i drew a Mind Grind, I cast it for 6 mana, Consuming Aberration's ability proc'd and you milled 1 land. Then you milled the rest of your library because you did not have 4 lands left. The Platinum Angel was in the last 17 cards of your library. Turn 9 milled out woot!

So all game i was afraid you would draw the angel and make it impossible for me to win, so a way to search for it would be really valuable, otherwise you're just hoping for it to be drawn. Maybe increase the number of them platinum angels?

Diabolic Tutor, Demonic Tutor, Increasing Ambition or any other tutor card that black has to offer will help you to get your commander back once he has been tucked into the library. Black has the best tutors in the game, so why not use them?

If you are looking for good Counterspells I can recommend Desertion, Cryptic Command (very expensive) or Last Word.

Havengul Lich seems like a good addition to the deck if you are going to do a lot of creature sacrificing. And he is a Zombie himself! gravepact, Dictate of Erebos or Butcher of Malakir will let your opponents sacrifice creatures once you sac one of your own!
I also think that going more with the Zombie tribal theme and adding cards like Zombie Master, Undead Warchief, Soulless One instead of Clone, Consuming Aberration or Returned Phalanx can make the deck better.

Wsebaste Nighthowler is perfect. This deck was originally build around Phenax and Consuming Aberration. Nighthowler is a perfect substitute for the aberration since he rotated out. I think the dragon throne needs to stay though. once Phenax is out I pop a dragon throne on the Nighthowler enchanted creature I can pay 2 colorless to give all my creatures that bonus for some devastating single turn mill. Awesome suggestions everywhere else though.

Consuming Aberration with your mana ramp he should be to hard to cast. Mill makes him bigger so you mill more from Phenax.

@Human_Rogue_21 Zedruu is my most fun deck out of all of them, and the deck is super cheap to build too simply because it runs all the janky cards that no-one likes. If you want, check out my build Some Goats Want to Watch the World Burn

As for The Mimeoplasm, you need to decide if you want to win by milling your opponent or yourself. Still, there are some cards that I would put into any Mimeoplasm deck regardless of the idea. Consuming Aberration, Death's Shadow, Lord of Extinction, and Phyrexian Dreadnought are great creatures to add +1/+1 counters to your general. Fauna Shaman, Buried Alive, Jarad's Orders, Intuition, Entomb, and Survival of the Fittest all let you tutor for creatures and get them in the graveyard. Mesmeric Orb is a cheap and great way to slowly mill everyone. Also Skithiryx, the Blight Dragon is a great way to one shot your opponent. For other ideas, feel free to check out my deck that mills my opponents. Mimeoplasm, the Deck Eater

I wanted to go self mill mostly as well, but some opponent milling cards like Altar of the Brood and Consuming Aberration fit in pretty well and kinda act as my quasi removal. With cards like Withered Wretch and Bojuka Bog to exile problem cards/graveyards. But I didn't want to have too much graveyard exiles because its the exact opposite of what my deck wants to happen.

I do like Mindcrank I was making a Mimeo zombie mill deck a while back that kinda fell apart that had Bloodchief Ascension in it to, mill or damage equals mega death.

Phenax, God of Deception and Consuming Aberration both look to be good multiplayer mill individually and have a good synergy. Just remember to keep the player with the most cards in their graveyard around for last so that Consuming Aberration stays large. Price
