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.

Prince of Thralls, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge

Marchesa, the Black Rose + Grave Betrayal

All the usual blue suspects like Memnarch and Willbreaker.

Endless Whispers if you wanna be funny too.

Some coming out soon Hostage Taker and Captivating Crew

That should get you started.

I really like the idea of making an EDH deck that's focused on all three HoD Gods. However, I don't think Nekusar, the Mindrazer is a good choice here. The only remotely effective way of playing Nekusar is to play that one-of Nekusar card drawing/burn deck you always see with him. Any other deck (including this one), you may as well pick literally any other Grixis commander. Thraximundar, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, etc. Nekusar's abilities are gone to complete waste in this deck. I would highly recommend swapping him out.

Love the originality of the deck, +1.

Depending on how reliant you want to be on your commander, the deck might benefit from taking out a few of the creatures. Traximundar, Oblivion Sower, and Baleful Strix, while good cards, don't really advance the strategy of casting large instants/sorceries. If you were to take the creature count down to below 10, I think your deck would run a lot smoother in terms of consistently hitting instants/sorceries with Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge.

Another suggestion, it might be good to run a few "each player sacrifices a creature" type of effects such as Smallpox, Tyrant's Choice, Reign of the Pit, Capital Punishment, and/or Barter in Blood. If nothing else, these will give you "outs" with Jeleva that will allow you to sacrifice her when there are no more instants/sorceries exiled under her.

Do you think this would synergize with the Mind Seize 2013 precon? Perhaps interchanging Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge and Kess, Dissident Mage?

have you considered Mind's Dilation? or Deadeye Navigator?

what about Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge?

dilation and jeleva would take stuff directly from them before it gets to the battlefield, and navigator allows you to abuse etb, so your gearhulk is crazy.

Remand storm spells

The aim of a storm deck is to combo out as quickly and efficiently as possible at any cost, just cramming a bunch of spells with storm into a grixis deck doesnt make it a storm deck, if you arent winning when a spell with storm resolves, you aren't playing the archetype correctly, and this list has very few draw engines and is far too slow to be able to build a respectable storm deck

The other problem with storm is for storm to be good enough to win games reliably, its nearly budgetless, you'd need Dark Confidant Snapcaster MageJace, Vryn's Prodigy  Flip Lion's Eye Diamond Imperial SealForce of Will Pact of Negation Mana DrainMox OpalMox DiamondMana CryptAncient TombGrim Monolith Mana VaultGamble Personal TutorEntombDemonic Tutor and other non budget cards to make the deck have any chance of presence before you get focused down by the table, especially because people already know what to expect from the nearly identical and widely infamous Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourgewas
