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.

That being said, looking to the future I have a deck submission that may look similar to the deck I was able to get featured on last week's showdown.

Lots of Stuff
Totally, I wasn't looking to get this cut throat or anything like that, but around 80 cards need to be cut and these were the enchantments/sorcery cards that I found underwhelming that's all.
Gate to Phyrexia - you're right that black/blue don't normally get to interact with artifacts so I can see including it.
Unless you can generate infinite mana, I feel like there has to be easier ways to kill a player than Consume Spirit . There's already Exsanguinate (which is awesome since it hits everyone) and the Exquisite Blood /Sanguine Bond combo in the deck. Consume Spirit again feels really underwhelming.
I love the idea of a zombie deck but you can't really do that if you want to keep the creature count low. I also think the mill/reanimate strategy is really cool (given you're playing against other creature based decks) but I just don't think you can do all three effectively.
As far as instants go, I'd get rid of all the counterspells. I love playing control, but this deck wants to be doing more exciting things than saying no. I can see the allure of countering a creature and then reanimating it but 4 counterspells aren't going to get you there (especially not Dissipate since it exiles).
Same with Twincast and Redirect - do you want to be holding up two mana to maybe copy something cool or use that mana to cast your commander, Mikaeus, the Unhallowed , Consuming Aberration , etc on curve?
good call yad
My pleasure - basically works as a two-card infinite combo as long as you have a creature to exile. May also be worth considering cards such like Sewer Nemesis (such as Consuming Aberration , Mortivore , etc) plus something like Altar of Dementia
Also Phenax, God of Deception maybe instead of your Undead Alchemist . Mill is much more consistent and it works well Consuming Aberration and Sewer Nemesis with but you have no token generator... Realmwright and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth work very well in addition to Crypt Ghast (since its reminder text does not determine its identity) as an additional mana source. In addition to your statement about " Bear in mind that big mana is pretty easy for this deck to hit." Increasing Confusion could be very nice too... Anyway... i love mill :-) +1
