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.

I'd be fine with seeded packs if you couldn't play them as part of your sealed pool. I.e. you have a strong chance of getting a card you want, but would have to rely on building a deck without it.

Some of the prerelease seeded packs have been ridiculous in Limited. Consuming Aberration, Foundry Champion, Celestial Archon, Dawnbringer Charioteers, Resolute Archangel, Heroes' Bane, and Indulgent Tormentor are all prime examples. Then there's Fate Reforged, with a smaller number of rares (the chances of getting any particular rare being 1 in 6, versus 1 in 8 for Khans and Dragons).

It'd be nice if they just went back to giving out cards like Lotus Bloom, Ajani Vengeant, Wurmcoil Engine, Sun Titan, or Helm of Kaldra.

If you have the funds Snapcaster Mage is a fun card, I run 4 in my deck i would consider taking outJace, Memory Adept because you already have a game ending creature in Consuming Aberration. you only need a few 5 drops because most of the time the game ends turn 4 or 5. It will make your mana curve better that way. Also Twincast can be a fun card as well its so funny when you have 2 Archive Traps in hand, then cast both for zero milling 26 and then Twincast and mill an additional 13.

I like to use Phenax, God of Deception in my mill deck. It decks people out pretty quickly if you use his ability with Wight of Precinct Six and Consuming Aberration

Hm, agreed on Consuming Aberration. It's not likely to be relevant here. Mind Funeral is a possible future addition. The deck doesn't need more mill; that's just fuel for its creatures and I like that design. It does add another control element through resource denial.

I'd have to playtest it against other decks to determine if the draw spells are needed. But if they are, what would you take out and what would you put in? Both these colors have plenty of draw power.

Consuming Aberration is an awesome card, don't get me wrong, but it just isn't for this deck. Being used as a finisher doesn't change much, because all the other creatures will be a good enough size by then, and there is high potential for 5/5 demon tokens to be present.

This actually isn't a focus on mill. There are mill cards, but there are just alternative ways of putting creatures in graveyards, kinda like a gamble of a kill spell. But if Comrade wants it to be more mill based, then it can be.

Mind Funeral could be in Curse of the Bloody Tome's place of you wish, just bear in mind it'll bring the price up by $10 for just 3 cards.

The deck is pretty consistent, which is why draw was left out in the first draft, but if you'd like some draw spells I can add some in.

EDIT- Almost forgot, ;)

Those are both good, but since i'm trying to keep the mana costs down the 5 mana slot is taken by Consuming Aberration whose effect I think will be better, and for one mana more Mind Funeral often works out better than Glimpse the Unthinkable. There is no budget to this deck since I have most of the cards already so i'll put Glimpse in the maybeboard and playtest it. Thank you for the suggestions.

How about Mind Grind or Mind Funeral? They are a touch more expensive but are still relatively cheap and are amazing mill cards.

Also, if you want it as a finisher I would drop one card such as one Tome Scour for one Consuming Aberration

How about Consuming Aberration? It's not too expensive and give you an amazing creature. For a few extra mana it's significantly better than Wight of Precinct Six
