Please make me a Kess Slim for $24 and the 3 paperclips I have in my pocket. It needs to compete against full budget FCT, HulkDruid, and Zur. Also please have it include Tendirls instead of Aetherflux because it's way more flavorful and can't be interrupted by counters.

Thanks in advance.

Thanks for the really well written responses. My playgroup is already scared of my Breya so I guess that means no grixis storm fun for me (I really like the idea of Jeleva).

Hmm..Maybe I'll build a Jeleva chaos deck instead. lol

Sinkies Budget Jeleva tries to be a budget version of Jeleva Slim, which tries to be singleton vintage grixis storm. Basically the deck aims to hit critical mass by a bunch of "kickstarters" like Ad Nauseam, Notion Thief + Wheel or just having cards and Yawgmoth's Will. From there you gemerate mana then play some cards and generate more mana and card draw until you can slam Aetherflux Reservoir, play a couple more spells and win. There's also Doomsday.

There's no good way of making the deck more casual, since storm kind of suffers from being either unplayable or too strong. Cutting good cards will just make the deck more inconsistent but when you eventually hit the good lines you just win, and this can easily happen turn 5 even with a worse budget version.

The deck doesn't rely on Jeleva in a traditional EDH sense. The deck can and often does win without casting its commander since none of the lines rely on Jeleva. That being said Jeleva is an amazing commander for the deck since the deck is so gas-dense that you usually hit some tutor or card draw spell which you then get to cast for free in your combat.

To add to that, basically how does Budget Jeleva play? Like pump out tons of mana and then try and get a storm count? Or does it combo off like a Breya? How important is it for Jeleva to attack to get her triggered ability?

Really appreciate you posting your own opinions, thanks

Thanks man your the best! My playgroup really isnt that competitive so thats why I imposed the $200 budget. But I think ~$300 wouldn't make it too much more competitive.

Just wondering because I don't really get the description of the win, but is Budget Jeleva a combo deck that wins ~5turns? Is there any way to play her less competitive than Budget Jeleva, while also maintaining true to the commander Jeleva herself?

Sinkies $200 is a really REALLY low budget for anything that's supposed to be 3c storm. Budget Jeleva This thing does exist but it's more than double your budget. If you really want to you could still cut things from that list but the deck is already so bare-bones that skimping on the landbase and cutting tutors would make the deck a lot less powerful. A lot of the deck is just 1-2 dollar cards so you could pretty cheaply get rituals, cantrips, rocks, interaction cards then slowly aquire the more expensive power cards like the tutors, yawgwin and such.
