i get that, i was playing more on the synergy with janky cards like Rite of Consumption to deal as much damage as fast as possible. i do really like your build however and might put it together on MTGO to test it out!

If u want to play Consuming Aberration you need for sure at least 2 copies of Rite of Consumption if u want an enchantament you have to put in Fraying Sanity that is superior. Ghost Quarter aren't good anymore: now you have to play Field of Ruin, you also have to put in 2 more Archive Trap that is very good with Field of Ruin. Now Glimpse the Unthinkable now cost less because was reprinted in mm17 so you can buy it if u can, because it is very strong,a core card. Instead of Jace's Phantasm you can play Manic Scribe. But if you like the combo with Consuming Aberration keep them. But put out Artful Dodge and put in Rite of Consumption, the problems are removals, aberration can be easily removed, so you need some Counters. Hope my advices are useful :). P.S. I made some changes to my deck, if u want to see them ;)

Hi there, I feel like I'd go and drop the from the deck at first since it stretches your manabase a lot and Cursecatcher / Negate which could relatively easy replaced by discards spells such as Duress while / Slip Through Space could be turned into Korozda Guildmage and/or Rite of Consumption.

In case you feel like keeping a third color in, I'd rather concider going with white since it offers stuff like Promise of Bunrei and the like. Also, you might want to add one more Nantuko Husk clones such as Vampire Aristocrat or Bloodthrone Vampire for consistency. Cheers!

If you say "I activate Wall of Blood's ability 10 times, and I cast Rite of Consumption." it's assumed that you pass priority after each one of those actions, meaning you're announcing an intention to activate Wall of Blood's ability, let it resolve, repeat it 9 more times, and then cast Rite of Consumption (presumably sacrificing the wall). You're opponent then has a chance to respond to any of those 11 passes of priority. If they do, any actions you announced an intention to take after that response you are no longer held to, but any actions before that, including all 11 actions if they choose not to respond (or respond to the casting of Rite of Consumption) you would be held to. The same is true if it were Fling instead. That said, it's a little more reasonable (depending on what responses you expect your opponent to have) to say "I activate Wall of Blood's ability 10 times," then see if your opponent has a response, and if they don't cast Rite of Consumption, though your opponent probably sees were it's going if they've played the deck before.

Magic isn't about reflexes, so your opponent can't "interrupt you mid-sentence", but they can respond to any one of the individual activations of Wall of Blood's ability.

For example: if you take a shortcut and say you want to activate it 10 times, they can respond to activation #1, activation #10, or anything in-between. You'll only end up paying life for the one they actually respond to and the ones before it. Responding to #10 is their last chance to do anything. If they let that last activation resolve, the game gives you priority again to take the next action and you can cast Rite of Consumption.

Say I have Wall of Blood in play and pay life for its ability, and then cast Rite of Consumption next. I know that once I cast Rite of Consumption the Wall of Blood gets sacrificed immediately and it cannot be removed anymore.

But is it possible to break the combo if my opponent just interrupt me mid sentence. Like after I say I pay life, my opponent can then remove Wall of Blood immediately, before I even say I'm casting Rite of Consumption?

How does it work?

Definitely go up on Rite of Consumption.

Dash Hopes would fit right in with this style of deck even though it's not that great elsewhere.

I know I am late to the conversation, but I am toying with a consuming aberration deck myself, and I found that Rite of Consumption is good for those "i can't get through with my Consuming Aberration" situations.
