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
6 days ago
I have another list which ran Consuming Aberration in addition to Essence Harvest and Rogue's Passage as means of getting the damage through if need be. Damage that got buffed through mill was the primary wincon there with milling them out being a secondary. In this case I was trying to reverse those roles. Thing in the Ice Flip is a very fun consideration for an aberration list though, I might try to slot it into the other one some time for funzies

Sire of Stagnation would work wonders as a card draw engine/ reanimation target.
Consuming Aberration would also put in some work if you decide to hit one of your opponents with the traumatize instead

I've seen a pretty nice strong-casual deck that used mill as a means to an end, loading the opponent up for a Consuming Aberration and taking stuff with Geth, Lord of the Vault, rather than straight decking.
In addition to lukas96's Lantern Control mill, Turbofog also can rely on attrition-based mill, with cards like Sphinx's Tutelage showing up frequently. It's not a tier 1 deck right now, but there are quite a few competitive lists around.

I like this. Consuming Aberration plus a loaded up Isochron Scepter or two make a wicked combo against aggro decks with low land counts. If you found room for Flight or Invisibility, the Consuming Aberration will be evasive on top of growing into a huge beatstick. Cards like Drain Life can help buy you extra turns against aggro while you're getting set up.

Okay, so I'm not an expert on mill in EDH, but I can give you some pointers on things that I notice.
First, you have some relatively weak cards in here; Ring of Thune seems great at first glance, but it's weak outside of a dedicated voltron deck. That said, having vigilance might be good here, so I'm not going to stop you. Chronic Flooding is hot garbage. Full stop. No debate. Essence Vortex should just be replaced with literally anything else that kills something, like a Doom Blade would work in that slot. Similarly, you should probably cut Calculated Dismissal for another, hard counterspell. It's just too inefficient, just like Lurking Informant.
As for cards that should be in here, well let's start off with the big 2. First, Bloodchief Ascension, and second, Sphinx's Tutelage. Both of these cards are insanely good (just be aware, Tutelage can be a nonbo with Necropotence) AND are tutorable with Zur. Not to mention that Ascension can be confirmed with just Zur alone, and then go infinite with Mindcrank. Additionally, Consuming Aberration should slot in here, as it's just a bigass mill machine that gets better with time.

Also, totally forgot to give you a +1. One more card suggestion which may be outside of the scope of this deck, but have you considered Consuming Aberration as a potential backup? Given that you'll be milling your opponents regularly, it could be a big threat the moment it hits the field taking attention away from your enchantments.

Consuming Aberration would find itself right at home here, especially with the clone effects. I agree with Jimmy_Chinchila's suggestions for Sphinx's Tutelage and Fraying Sanity too though. +1 for the deck, and I'd +1 again for the Tool reference if I could. You should check out Maynard's other two bands, Puscifer and A Perfect Circle, if you haven't already.

Rekkoha001Nope, imho casting phenax immediately can only makes it(and you) a big target and in addition you will not be able to activate his ability immediately( unless you have something like Thousand-Year Elixir on the battlefield).. The best thing to do is to play it when you have some walls or monsters like Consuming Aberration,Sewer Nemesis already on the battlefield to activate his ability in the same turn.
