Deck "T1-Abomination Recombinations"
I can, in no way, take no credit for this build. It is a transfer of a build by Tom Wylie I pulled from the WotC Hecatomb site ages ago when it was still active.
As is usual for a deck, your choice of expensive minions is subject to the environment you play in. Skinny Pete is a useful backup when the Aura Projectors aren't showing up, but if you don't play against many cheap relics, there are better sources of Fanatic. Soldier of the Sun is good for its Soulbound ability, since that's a stitching mechanic under the covers, so triggers Aura Projector. But forcing deceit minions to the top of your abominations works too much against the deck's strengths if the Quangles aren't staying in play. Damned Thing is a great finisher, and of course this deck doesn't mind Parasites. If you play against a lot of destruction decks, be sure to include at least two Parasites.
The minion curve stops at 6 because this deck is especially dependent on playing multiple cards in a turn, and if you're still around on turn 9 something has probably gone very wrong. If you want to go higher, Lamia Huntress is interesting because of Soulbound's tricks, Skull Swarm obviously combines nicely with the rest of this deck, and you get full value from either one with Infusion. Greater Cthugian is also good if you want to focus on the Hiana/Infusion combination, since its conditional ability is weak enough you won't mind losing out on it. In most environments, you're playing enough Mutants that Greater Khoshu can generally find targets to exhume.
Getting the Party Started
Finally, I included Killer Party since it can eliminate a blicker, and the problem of also having to sever one of your own minions is largely neutralized by this deck. There are so many Quangles and strength 4 minions around that it's common to have one sitting around in a singleton abomination. And of course it's another way of ripping good attackers out of a Guardian stack once your mana supply is established.
An alternative version of this deck takes advantage of its great bushwhacking potential by relying on Hunter more than Aura Projector. Swap TEZCATLIPOCA in for NYARLATHOTEP, and some Deep Lurkers in for other minions, and you can easily pick off opposing abominations giving you trouble.
You can select other 5-cost minions in place of Night Child, Skinny Pete, and Soldier of the Sun, and other 6-cost minions in place of Damned Thing, Daughter of Blood and Hatchoq, although those would be my preference for those cost points.
