Out of curiosity, what is the reasoning behind running only 30 lands with about 11 other mana sources?

Thanks again for a lot of good suggestions. I recently pulled a Gamblefrom an UMA pack, so I'll definietly be trying it. The rituals are also probably very good now that I run Kess. I played around with Cabal Ritual in Jeleva but I never really reached Treshhold when I actually needed the mana

I also love all the cantrips like Ponder, Preordain, and Gitaxian Probe. The sellers I've bought for just never haven't really had them at anything less than way too much when I've looked. But I agree that they're all pretty much staples in Kess.

Do you have any suggestions for cards you feel like might not fit in my list? :)

I do think more effects like Soothsaying would have been amazing with Jeleva when I was still playing tons of big spells, but sadly I decided she was no longer the right Grixis commander for me, and swapped her out with Kess, Dissident Mage

Though, I don't think Helm of the Host would do anything? The ETB is useless as the cost to play her is 0, so 0 cards would be exiled, and she doesn't share a card pool with the original Jeleva. I should probably look at Thousand-Year Storm though, now that Kess is the commander and I'm cutting CMC. Thanks for the suggestion ^^

But the point here is to use infinite mana (that is tutored) to make Torment a guaranteed kill. Unless I play Jeleva a ton, and Echo Storm a gilded lotus, Torment and Exsanguinate are both probably going to fail killing my opponent. Lab man + Stroke + Fork is a 3 card combo that needs 45 mana ++ to win with. So with infinite mana all of them get the job done equally well? I do agree that I should atleast be running Exsanguinate in addition, though. We don't play anything close to cedh, and nothing like Doomsday combos, so which x spell I choose doesn't matter too much, I believe

Stroke of Genius doesn't work as a win condition, as it only kills one player. It's possible to use on myself as draw though, so I can see that. I can see the argument for Comet Storm and Exsanguinate, but... why do you not like Torment? There's no randomness to it either, and if I can't combo off and I get into a lategame, Torment of Hailfire can potentially kill people from 11 mana much more easily than any of the others. Though I should probably run Stroke and Exsanguinate aswell
