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

XownagerX on Can I double the effects ...

1 week ago

You may cast the exiled card Army of the Damned with Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge's triggered ability whenever she attacks. As you cast Army of the Damned, Army of the Damned is put on the stack

As you control Mirari, you may pay to put a copy of the Army of the Damned on top of the stack.

When the stack resolves, the copy of Army of the Damned will resolve first and after that the card Army of the Damned you had cast from exile will resolve secondly.

706.10. To copy a spell, activated ability, or triggered ability means to put a copy of it onto the stack; acopy of a spell isnt cast and a copy of an activated ability isnt activated. A copy of a spell orability copies both the characteristics of the spell or ability and all decisions made for it, includingmodes, targets, the value of X, and additional or alternative costs. (See rule 601, Casting Spells.)Choices that are normally made on resolution are not copied. If an effect of the copy refers toobjects used to pay its costs, it uses the objects used to pay the costs of the original spell or ability.A copy of a spell is owned by the player under whose control it was put on the stack. A copy of aspell or ability is controlled by the player under whose control it was put on the stack. A copy of aspell is itself a spell, even though it has no spell card associated with it. A copy of an ability is itselfan ability.

Because Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge let's you cast the spells any relevant cast triggers will trigger. This includes Mirari. Not that Mirari copies the spell, not casts it, so you will technically only be casting the spell once for any other relevant on cast triggers (like storm), but you will have two copies of the spell, so in this case you'd get 26 zombies.

For example, if I have Mirari out, and I have exiled an Army of the Damned with Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge when I attack can I cast army twice essentially by paying 3 with mirari?

Adamaro: I don't see much reason to drop 5 dollars on Eternal Witness when a cheap sorcery will do the same thing. I don't plan on running any creature recursion to abuse it either. Demonic Tutor I will probably never acquire due to cost. I'm thinking about moving Mystical Tutor from my Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge deck here; thanks for the reminder. This is my favourite edh deck so it will serve better here. Thanks for the suggestions!

Hissp on [List - Multiplayer] EDH Generals by Tier

Athraithe The point is that I've seen many people post to this list saying, "Hey here's a new spin on a commander/deck you all may not have seen, let's discuss!" Some people haven't done their homework, omitting basic cEDH staples like dual lands and Mana Crypt. Some of us have done our homework and are presenting the best possible list for a given commander.

Many of the Voltron staples like Uril, the Miststalker are sitting in tier 3 where they belong. Uril, the Miststalker literally never wins a game on turn 3. If you want to make the argument that there's too much spot removal in cEDH and without hexproof the deck can't compete no matter how fast it is, then that's a thoughtful discussion we could have.

I don't understand what your fixation with combat damage is because you haven't explained it. Doesn't Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder rely on combat damage? Similar to Yidris the primary goal of my Godo deck is to hit 1 person once and win that very same turn.

Almost every month you get someone new posting a deck idea to this list only for people to flame them because their deck would never match up against top tier decks. I never claimed anything close to what buildingadeck implied in his sarcastic response, and I don't see how that kind of toxicity is helping anyone.

Many times people like me are excited about the idea we've stumbled upon and overestimate its potential. I've conceded that my original tier 2 assertion was a reach, especially given that I've only played the deck a handful of times so far.

I've already advocated for consolidating all the lower tiers -- including much of tier 3 -- to non-competitive. Until that happens we're going to be arguing about whether my deck is more competitive than Aurelia, the Warleader, not whether it's more competitive than Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge or Sidisi, Undead Vizier.

Fellow Arahbo, Roar of the World player, Arahbo, Xenagos... for Cats

Noticed you pulled Alms Collector out, he has been invaluable for me fighting Grixis () commander's like Kess, Dissident Mage / Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge for Enter the Infinite, and Izzet () like Mizzix of the Izmagnus Infinite Mana Blue Sun's Zenith decks.

Qasali Pridemage > Felidar Cub. I know he has a cost, which sucks, however, the Exalted is a nice boost, it's contradictory to your Beastmaster Ascension strategy, so I kind of understand, but I would worry about over-committing with no protection / counterspell.

Nature's Lore or Three Visits > Rampant Growth. Can pull the Savannah or Forest and doesn't enter tapped. So the CMC for Nature's Lore is only .

Keen Sense feels like over-committing on a creature and a 2-for-1 loss in an exchange. Plus it only draws you 1 card, AND the creature has to deal damage to an opponent. I wouldn't run that, I'd rather have haste from a Swiftfoot Boots over that.

Uktabi Wildcats is to high CMC for how big he's going to be CMC5 for 5/5 is reasonable, and his ability isn't that great, plus sac a forest (means he gets smaller) and doesn't protect him from exile. You only have 14 forest so need 35% of your forest just to be so-so. Perhaps if your game plan was to Traverse the Outlands into him, it would be ok, but not in the current build. Put in some aggro, "must be answered", like a Lost Leonin.

Riparian Tiger CMC5 for a 4/4 Trample seems wrong, if you have other energy cards, maybe I'd be happier with a Pride of Lions at that CMC and doesn't need the Trample.

Triumph of the Hordes could work well for you with so many creatures. Excellent with Adorned Pouncer or a Skyhunter Skirmisher

I don't like the CMC on Harmonize, would rather Hunter's Insight on an Eminence Cat.

You have lots of High CMC, I would rather tutor for the cat I want with things like Eladamri's Call than have 4 CMC6 cats for example, just have 2 CMC6 cats and 2 tutors to get them. But preference I guess.

Anyways hope you found something here useful! Cheers +1

If you're looking for a sneakier deck, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge can play all of the "Grixis" eldrazi from BFZ block, and you can play up all of those sweet Ingest/Processor synergies
