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.

Overfluff on Dimir says... Nope.

First off I would add another Watery Grave and another Temple of Deceit , there's nothing wrong with more dual lands and more scry. And then I would cut Consuming Aberration for more Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver s or Jace, Architect of Thought s. Aberration just dies to removal spells and is just kinda too cute for 5 mana. So I would push the planeswalker count higher, especially with something like Jace which is instant card advantage.

If you could get Phenax, God of Deception and use him in combination with Consuming Aberration the milling tends to become really deadly. Every time you activated Phenax's ability and tapped Consuming Aberration it doubles its power and toughness and therefore doubles the milling potential next turn.

@wolfsokol: A) Phenax, God of Deception + Nightveil Specter is not enough devotion. Nightveil, despite having both symbols, only provides three devotion.

B) Consuming Aberration may be slow, but it mills them out stupid fast and gets stupid huge if they dont deal with him. I have kill spells and counters to stall until I can drop him.

C) AEtherling is a double win-con. He deals damage, and can mill for as much as I want if I have Phenax, God of Deception in play. Also, he comes back at the beginning of the next end step, so I can in one turn use him to block, then tap him to mill, then exile him and still be able to attack or mill with him come my turn.

i am trying a milling version of this deck with Consuming Aberration and Phenax, God of Deception . i had pieces of both black and blue devotion decks instead of the whole things, so it made sense for me to play around a little more. Ashiok contributes to mill there, and potential creature advantage/ mirror match back at my opponent, along with the Nightveil Specter cards.

Specters of Thought (Theros-Dimir)

+1 from me.

DocUsher I was thinking about dropping the Siren of the Silent Song in favor of Wight of Precinct Six . Also would like to work in Consuming Aberration but i think it will drive my CMC up higher than I want. Thoughts?

I generally agree with the other comment about relying solely on Phenax. That's why Consuming Aberration is such a good card. What you have here seems to run like a defender aggro that doesn't really do anything until your 5 drops.

I prefer Pilfered Plans and Read the Bones over Divination .

Putrefy is a good removal and deals with artifacts. Fade into Antiquity is also a good card that allows you to remove the pesky gods as well.

Fog is a decent stall tactic that is also cheap.

As far as Psychic Strike is concerned, I've always been a fan but depends on what you like more. Dissolve gives you scry but requires 2 blue mana.

Duress is cheap and can also help with planeswalkers and spells. Price
