By Force for Etali, Primal Storm = because who cares about removal when you combo off. And Etali is an awesome red card !! Hell yeahhhh

Thanks, agree with pretty much everything there. Prefer By Force over Shatterstorm so I don't blow up my own stuff. Stormbreath Dragon and Ensnaring Bridge is a bit of a nonbo, which is why I hadn't chosen any creature win-cons, but I guess Abrade could be used to solve that.

You are a little light on win conditions. If you don't find one of your six planeswalkers, you are giving your opponent a lot of time to draw out of your lock. I think 4 Blood Moon, 4 Blood Sun and 3 Magus might be too much, 2-3 of them could be Goblin Rabblemaster or Stormbreath Dragon. Magus seems worst, since you are running Anger of the Gods.
The Madcap Experiment plan doesn't really work unless you board out all the 8 mainboard artifacts, which will rarely be correct. Dragon's Claw can be your anti Burn technology.
Vandalblast gets countered by your own Chalice, try By Force, Shattering Spree or Shatterstorm instead.

I like your sideboard. I might side in By Force for Affinity and other artifact decks though.

Night Market Lookout should be a 4 of, so should Scrapheap Scrounger and Weldfast Engineer Inventor's Apprentice. Cut it back to 22 lands, aggressive decks can run a little less. Bump it up to 4 Unlicensed Disintegration and Built to Smash. Get 4 Fleetwheel Cruiser and run them in place of the other vehicles you have 2 of each of. Then replace the last 2 artifacts with Skysovereign, Consul Flagship. Pia Nalaar would be good in here too. Also add one more solid piece of removal, Never / Return and Hour of Glory are a little more budget friendly than Fatal Push and Vraska's Contempt, Lightning Strike and Abrade are really good too. Trim it down to 60 cards using 4 of each of the cards I mentioned other than the sky sovereigns and the deck will be pretty consistent. Sideboard should be like 3 each of Sentinel Totem Duress Lay Bare the Heart By Force and Shock. This deck should be super fast this way, and it will help that you curve is lower, the only other upgrade would be to replace Untethered Express with Aethersphere Harvester or Heart of Kiran. Hope it works well for you.

Surreality on Jeleva, Nephalia’s Scourge (Grixis Storm - EDH)

That's actually an extremely close call. When I originally started playing this deck, I was using Vandalblast, and then I switched it out for By Force, and very recently I made the swap to Smelt. All 3 of them have extremely similar effects. I personally believe that Smelt is better than Vandalblast as you will almost never overload a Vandalblast unless you end up in an extremely long matchup where you are trying to grind out your opponent (This is very rare but can happen sometimes in an extremely Stax meta). By Force can actually be better sometimes as it is cheaper to hit 2/3 artifacts than a Vandalblast. However, I found this situation to be extremely rare as you almost always are only trying to blow up one artifact. This card slot however comes down to personal preference. I believe I would order those three cards as Smelt, Vandalblast, By Force, however I highly recommend you run a artifact removal spell, which of the 3 is entirely up to you. I also know that Rev is running a Abrade in his current iteration of Jeleva Slim, however I do not believe at the moment that this card deserves the slot more than the other 3 I mentioned above.

Drop the flagships for more land, 20 is a bit low for your deck. If not them, the planeswalker has to go, 20 lands to hit a 6 drop is gonna be hard. Aside from that, By Force is good artifact hate, Hour of Glory and Never / Return is really good removal too.

Your sideboard should be dependent on what your local meta consists of, however I can make some recommendations.

Solemnity is good for the energy/ +1+1 counters strategies.

Sentinel Totem and Crook of Condemnation are good graveyard hate cards for God-Pharaoh's Gift and Cycling decks.

Abrade can get rid of problematic artifacts but you should probably be running those mainboard since they're pretty versatile. Id say put in 3 of them over your Impeccable Timing and Electrify. By Force is a more budget option to deal with problematic artifacts if that's a concern. Also Lightning Strike is in standard and it might have a home in this deck.

The only other thing I could recommend is to focus more on cards you really want to play. You have alot of 1/2 ofs and that lowers the consistency of your deck. Stuff like Graceful Cat and Hyena Pack are ok, but the deck slots could be used for more Glory-Bound Initiates and Gust Walkers. That's just an example but I'm sure you get the idea. You can easily replace some cards to increase the raw power of your deck.

Overall the deck looks sweet and I wish you the best of luck tuning it!
