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.

Consuming Aberration Discussion

Thanks for the suggestion, MrJohny, I didn't pay much attention to Chart a Course after I went to the Ixalan prerelease, but it does seem pretty neat. I'm hesitant to put anything more in the deck at Sorcery speed, but I've thought about cutting one of two Consuming Aberration for a while, maybe it has a home there.I checked out your R/U delver deck, seems fun- I would love to have a modern league with friends, too, that sounds like a great idea.Thanks for the feedback!

Yiayiasboy3, No, Summoning Sickness cares about none of those things.

It literally just cares about what pskinn01 said, that the creature has been under your control since the beginning of your last upkeep. (If the creature changes zones and comes back, it's a new object, and it hasn't been under your control long enough.)

Anyway, like pskinn01 said, the Consuming Aberration will not have summoning sickness.

Hey guys, so this came up in a game of EDH last week.

It's well know that if you gain control of a creature an opponent controls with effects like Control Magic it will be summon sick. That's why effects like Act of Treason also add haste to the mixture. Until this point we are okay.

Problem is: What if I gain control of a creature I ALREADY control? For example, I control a 10/10 Consuming Aberration that is not summon sick. Then I want to enchant it with Corrupted Conscience so it will be a one hit kill with infect. Does the Aberration became summon sick again as it become "under my control" one more time?

Thanks in advance.

Consuming Aberration, Evacuation, Pyre Hound, and Niblis of Frost would be a great cards also. It would be better if it had a cool winning condition. Perhaps increasing a creatures power by casting spells and then fling it (I'm obsessed with Fling, this isn't the best combo).

it feels like you have a lot of spells that care about graveyards, but then your only way of getting cards into a graveyard is Consuming Aberration and just plain killing them.

I mainly like Consuming Aberration for tapping when I have Phenax, God of Deception out. When I play this deck, I usually have alot of trouble getting many zombies out. mikeintosh do you have your deck on here? Can you link it? How does it perform for you?

About the cards you discussed:

Lich Lord of Unx very underwhelming, got rid of it long time ago, never really liked the cards

Kindred Discovery is perfect card draw actually. And it works the moment you put it on the table and attack

Consuming Aberration Can be really strong if there are no defences but it could be chumped for turns, left my decklist long time ago

Corpse Harvester - Tutors up my zombie combo (either Sidisi or Gravecrawler) and also guarantee you a land drop

Thran Dynamo - The deck is very mana hungry so I play every good ramp possible. Never actually played flash enablers, I think they are quite redundant

Propaganda - I prefer another boardwipe instead since you can reanimate all the creatures later

Kindred Discovery also seems to really never really be what I want to play. Usually sits in my hand. Just replaced it with Consuming Aberration I also took out Vedalken Orrery to put in Thran Dynamo
