Very cool deck! I've never seen Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, but I completely agree with your Commander philosophy and your deck looks like it's a blast to play. I also appreciate the details you shared about the cards you chose for it.

I have made a kess deck before, and a few good cards I put in include Jaya Ballard, Ral, Izzet Viceroy, Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge, and Cast Through Time

I agree with multimedia that Grixis seems like a great colour combination to represent the Joker.

I haven't seen the movie, so I can't say anything regarding most of the scenes. Looking at the possible Grixis commanders, the following jump out to me flavourwise:

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge she turns opponents insane and becomes stronger.

Mairsil, the Pretender : Very fitting artwork, and he becomes stronger the longer the game goes.

Mishra, Artificer Prodigy : Vnother fitting artwork, and his decks tend to do some very convoluted stuff. Joker isn't that much about machines though.

Nekusar, the Mindrazer might work as well, especially with regards to the next paragraph.

I've heard that there's something strange with the clocks in the movie. How about Midnight Clock to represent this?

One of my friends have a Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge deck with the same goal as you. Run some copy cards and stealing cards and you'll have a good time!

Regardless of stack ordering.

Jeleva, Nephalia's Scourge 's ability says that "X is the amount of mana spent to cast Jeleva." In Magic terms, the inclusion of Jeleva's name here means "X is the amount of mana spent to cast [this particular game object]."

Each token copy will contain a copy of this ability, but the "Jeleva" they are each referring to is themselves. You don't spend any mana to cast the copies at all, because you don't cast them, you simply create them and they enter the battlefield. Since you spent no mana to cast them, X will be zero.

The order of the stack doesn't affect things at all in this case.
