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 actually have the dictate in a deck. I took them off my trade list but forgot to edit the text. I could do the helm for Consuming Aberration and Bonescythe Sliver though.

If your going to run phenax, you should run a Consuming Aberration or two, this works real well with Jace, Memory Adept or Traumatize . Also try a Thoughtseize or another hand probe card.

I found Nephalia Drownyard to be unhelpul. I suggest running Shelldock Isle over it.

I'd recommend dropping Mind Grind - variable grinding isn't as good as it should be and card draw is far more useful and instead putting in some blockers like Jace's Phantasm or Fog Bank . Consuming Aberration is always fun if you want to add a different late game spell, but still have creatures. I noticed you saying about Haunting Echoes which is definitely a worthy option to replace Mind Grind too

I miss Psychic Strike too :(

Whenever I played it at FNM people were like "wtf you play that card?" then grumbled and complained as Ashiok, Nightmare Weaver , Consuming Aberration , Mirko Vosk, Mind Drinker and Jace, Memory Adept killed them slowly and painfully.

A card to look at could be Consuming Aberration , it's a good mill card; just something to think about.

Thanks for the comment and the +1! You're right, this deck has taken a lot of time to make into what it is now. I lost a lot of stuff when RTR block rotated out, but I think the deck is even stronger now than it was then. I don't have the deck 100% built for real yet (my Courser of Kruphix are still proxied) but I test it with my friends a lot at schol during our breaks against a huge range of decks, from Tier 1 Abzan Midrange and Jeskai Tempo, to homebrewed Altar of the Brood milling mirror matches.

It is a total blast to play, and I can't wait to get my Courser of Kruphix and try this version at FNM.

Before rotation, I was playing Consuming Aberration , much to my delight, but not so much to others. He's moved into my Phenax EDH deck now, which I build simply because I love Phenax so much. Sidebar, Eater of the Dead is totally ridonkulous with Phenax.

Don't use Chronic Flooding it's really quite terrible in EDH. Try Memory Erosion for a similar effect.

Here are some ideas


Buried Alive

Merfolk Looter Actually just looters in general are great in this kind of deck.

Consuming Aberration

Grave Titan because value

Vulturous Zombie

Rise of the Dark Realms because who needs low cmc spells, amiright?

Lhurgoyf because Tarmogoyf is too fucking expensive

The new Souls would be pretty bitchin in this as well, specifically Soul of Innistrad and possibly Soul of Zendikar .

Probably gonna want some board clearing spells, best bet is something like Plague Wind or maybe Black Sun's Zenith .

Terastodon can deal with annoying shit or turn your lands into more annoying shit. Price
