@cxseals and @x1214Tango I just realized that Whispersilk Cloak isn't legal for Standard, so I moved it to the sideboard and added in 3 Rogue's Passage s instead (I feel like Herald of Torment would be a bit expensive mana-wise, but thanks for the suggestion cxseals)

Whispersilk Cloak isn't in standard though if you want to make master harder to block you can bestow Herald of Torment to it; that will give you versatility in that you also have a nice 3/3 flyer when your master isn't out

@X1214Tango I didn't even know that Whispersilk Cloak was a thing! I took out some extra land and added 3 of them in. Thanks for the help!

My advice is to make your Master of Cruelty unblockable with like Prowler's Helm or Whispersilk Cloak that way it's a guaranteed hit and the Whispersilk Cloak guarantees the hit because it gives shroud so no instants or sorcery bother it

Find ways to make Jeleva unblockable, shrouded, hasty, etc. (Lightning Greaves , Whispersilk Cloak , or personal awkward favorite Ashling's Prerogative ) She's only really good for the free cards you play (unless you for some reason want to voltron her . . . don't), which has the major drawback of those cards being visible to everyone. If you hit some good stuff (Worst Fears anyone?), people will want to wreck her immediately. If it is a bunch of Unsummon , Ponder , etc. they'll just ignore you're pathetic 1 flying damage.

For this reason, library manipulation (scry, Halimar Depths etc.) is great, allowing you to set up at least your side of the free stuff (if you want to really get into advantages from your opponents' decks I suppose you could use fateseal and Jace, the Mind Sculptor ).

A final piece of advice would be to have a profitable way to ditch Jeleva if you do wind up with crappy stuff (or no instants/sorceries) exiled. Altar's Reap , Unsummon , and Fling are all options in Grixis colors (as well as many similar/parallel effects).

PS Opal Palace is actually decent with her, as you will be casting her multiple times in a game, and eventually a 3/5-4/7 flyer dealing commander damage can become an issue.

jakonater - thanks for the suggestion. i thought of Whispersilk Cloak (great card), but Shroud could screw me over by hindering my ability to buff my little friends :D
