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.

Im with Darkite, Mind Funeral is a better card than Mind Grind. Another option with Consuming Aberration could be Rite of Consumption. Always fun to fling creatures.

I recommend taking out Leyline of the Void. It counteracts cards like your Consuming Aberration and Bloodchief Ascension just to name a few.

The low price is impressive! Do you know what its TCG-Low price is? I've managed to build one for nearly that cheap (posted earlier in the "Advertise your commander deck" thread), so I know how ridiculously hard it is.

With regards to individual card choices, Pongify is the second Rapid Hybridization, and I'm not a fan of Benthic Infiltrator: it won't exile enough cards to matter, and since it's colorless it fails to trigger your commander. Have you considered Consuming Aberration, Mortivore, or Sewer Nemesis? They're good finishers in a mill deck :) Also, they go super well with Altar of Dementia, which is a handy card to have around anyway.

Hope that helps! You're welcome to take a look through my aforementioned budget (self-)mill deck, in case you find any interesting additions: $26 Extreme Budget $idisi EDH

Why not use cards that take advantage of the fat graveyards. Cards like Consuming Aberration, Nighthowler, Bonehoard, or Wight of Precinct Six?

The problem with mixing mill and damage is that if you mix the two you end up hurting your own chances. Milling out the opponent does not help you win the game in the long run with damage and vice versa.

  • If your opponent is at 1 life at the end of the game and you milled them out, the fact that you dealt 19 damage to them is irrelevant.
  • If your opponent has one or even zero cards in their library and you kill him/her via damage, the fact that you milled him out is irrelevant.

There are very few decent creatures that work well with mill. Manic Scribe, Hedron Crab and Jace's Phantasm are the few I can think of. Consuming Aberration gets easily blocked by the smallest of creatures.

If you want a deck that can be competitive, fun and can win via damage or milling, a user on here has a very cool idea that I sincerely recommend you check out:

The most BRUTAL mill combos I know are Sphinx's Tutelage + Painter's Servant (not sure if painter is modern legal though)... Traumatize + Consuming Aberration + Phenax, God of Deception.... But my personal favorite is Sphinx's Tutelage + Teferi's Puzzle Box + Psychic Possession

Thassa, God of the Sea with provide constant scry and proivide a means to make creatures unblockable or maybe Artful Dodge.... Wight of Precinct Six could also be a growing mill/beatstick threat... im also a fan of Consuming Aberration

Path to Exile is a little too much for me, but it is an awesome card indeed.

Do you think it is worth to focus on defender creatures? I was thinking about using Circu, Dimir Lobotomist, Consuming Aberration, Duskmantle Guildmage, Wight of Precinct Six, Wrexial, the Risen Deep, Nightveil Specter and Shimian Specter.
