My editing of the Jeleva precon deck to install my own personal touch. I'm focusing on Grixis' love of recursion, so the deck is designed to use the graveyards just as often as its hand. Any advice in regards to what i can take out, add, etc is all appreciated with the exception that i don't like extra turn shenanigans.

obviously the deck still needs to first be trimmed and then improved. Suggestions for either category (excluding extra turns) is always appreciated

you need more library manip- Scroll Rack , Brainstorm . jeleva also can't take advantage of counter spells so reduce those. replace creatures and other things jeleva cant take advantage of (counterspells, enchantments that dont help), with things that maximize jelevas strengths like Seize the Day , Time Warp (or all the time magics really), and strionic resonator. multi function counterspells (Izzet Charm , Cryptic Command ) work the best since you can use them if theyre in hand and you wont be missing out on them if it gets exiled by her. worst part of jeleva is wiffing!! your deck is too much good stuff with little synergy with your commander. even if youre on a budget, find fun cards that can do the trick with AND without jeleva. im super excited to get my own copy of the deck x] GOOD LUCKKK!!

looks alright, i think the deck need some draw. Maybe remove 3 or 4 creatures for draw spells since Jeleva doesn't work well with non instants/sorceries so. Eye of doom is a nice multiplayer card i suppose but not that good 1v1, i dont like it overall i think there are better options. But yea like a previous guy said, Jeleva is a commander that you need to really build around her and have good synergy, when you cast her removing non instant/sorceries is a pain.

Jeleva's Spell deck my version of the deck, check it out. Trying to fix it slowly

I'd strongly recomend reducing the number of creatures. Its so depressing when you hit nothing off of her. And I dont just mean nothing from your deck, I mean nothing from anyone. Most people dont actuly have a huge number of instances and sorcerys so the first time you cast her for only four you might get nothing.

If your worried abot not having enough creatures then replace ones like Desecration Demon (who isnt very good in EDH), with spells like Telemin Performance that get you a creatures but arn't wasted if you excile them with your commander.

Heres my own look at Jeleva's a Hard Woman to Please.

@TheAlmightyPillock what he said, serioously my deck is heavy on spells and even that sometimes in multiplayer (3 or 4 players) i end up with just a few spells, sometimes non lol and i remove things that i could had used. She is a weird commander, probably not the best there is but i like her for some reason plus i don't like to use what everyone is using, i like to be unique in a way.

I suggest Wrexial, the Risen Deep . He really seems to work well with her.
