Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

Legendary Creature — Vampire Wizard


When Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge enters the battlefield, each player exiles the top X cards from his or her library, where X is the amount of mana spent to cast Jeleva.

Whenever Jeleva attacks, you may cast an instant or sorcery card exiled with it without paying its mana cost.

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge Discussion

NV_1980 on I'll hold on to that for you!

Hi True_Neutral,

Wildfire Eternal seems too unpredictable to me. I often play against decks that have life-gaining as one of the central themes. These opponents will rather block Wildfire, than letting me cast spells that allow me to steal their stuff. Then there's the fact that this deck doesn't contain that many expensive spells, and of the spells that ARE expensive, some have variable mana costs (which doesn't work well at all with Wildfire's free-casting mechanic). I'd be more tempted to add him to a Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge EDH deck.

Bloodwater Entity is a slightly worse version of Archaeomancer, in the sense that the spell returns to the top of my library instead of to my hand. Sure, it also has flying and prowess, but those aren't really a selling point for me.

Kefnet's Last Word, ... no. Too unpredictable to be of true value. Sure, if I have Windfall in my hands or this were a deck containing Seedborn Muse, this would be a fine card. But under every other condition, I'd rather have Control Magic.

I also built a grixis deck recently, but my drive was Cruel Ultimatum, so I chose Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge. I also run Vial Smasher the Fierce, who I recommend a lot!

pskinn01 on Best storm commander?

Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder or Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge are the best storm options, but I like mizzix also as a spell slinger.

The problem with Gonti, Lord of Luxury is that he's mono black. Same with the to praetors. Mono colored CANNOT work for a seven deadly sins list. Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge is interesting. Not sure how she would apply to seven deadly sins.

I will Not play Nekusar, the Mindrazor. Don't like playing him, don't like playing against him. That's just me.

I think Marchesa 1.0 could be the Commander who you want for this theme deck, but how about Nekusar, the Mindrazer or Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge? Glen Elendra Archmage punishes for... Greed maybe? Even Gonti, Lord of Luxury sorta fits.Urabrask the Hidden, Sheoldred, Whispering One? These are just my suggestions :). I probably didn't hit it right on the head, but I feel like maybe some of these could help. Even if you wanted to change the commanders to the first two I listed.

I am having the exact same issue. For me it is saying that Command Tower, Thought Vessel, Illusionist's Gambit, Baleful Strix, and my commander Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge are all banned.

ElementalEd on Budget Powerful EDH Cards (Under 2 bucks)

Like i said most of the rings are niche cases, but i didn't mean only breya.

Ring of Thune, Ring of Evos Isle, Ring of Xathrid is useful in Kemba, Kha Regent strategies.

Ring of Valkas, is great in any deck that wants another haste enabler. Heartless Hidetsugu & Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge come to mind.

Marchesa, the Black Rose also likes the +1/+1 counters despite them being a bit slow.

At some point I may take the time to clean up the list to include objectively better cards, and remove the one hardly used. For instance Ashes to Ashes, is WAYY better than Victim of the night, Vendetta, or Go for the Throat IMO. But it currently isn't on the list, because its pretty hard to think of every perfect card for EDH under two bucks, without forgetting some, and including some questionable ones haha.

But thanks for the input! The conversation is always appreciated, and I am glad that you are taking such an interest in commander!
