After watching Chapin's deck tech from GP Columbus, I noticed he used bonesplitter which costs 3, instead of shriekmaw which is 2. My question is, is this because shriekmaw would not work with the aether vial interaction or was this just an oversight of his.

The only thing that Aether Vial cares about is the converted mana cost of the card. It does not take into account alternate ways to cast the creature (like evoke).

Also, evoke doesn't combo well with flashing back Cabal Therapy, while Bone Shredder does...

Also, you must mean Bone Shredder...since Bonesplitter is neither a creature, nor does it cost 3, but now that I realize what the card is, niknight is correct in his explanation
