Gaddock Teeg Discussion

Thassa's a good inclusion. I think I'll make that swap.
Forgotten ancient is awesome, but it always feels clunky and in my particular meta, it's quite underwhelming. Guys at my LGS play a fully optimized Karador, Ghost Chieftain, Yisan, the Wanderer Bard and Gaddock Teeg just to name a couple of them.

There are a lot of cards that hurt competitive decks in your colours while you can avoid their effects by running on a low budget. For example you could run a lot of global artifact hate, such as Null Rod, Titania's Song, Stony Silence, Kataki, War's Wage, Root Maze and targetet recurring removal like Aura Shards and you won't have to buy the high priced mana artifacts yourself. You don't want to play them anyway with all these cards...that would be a great way to play competitive on a low budget.
Gaddock Teeg also disables many important combo pieces and control cards. Also try a Blood Moon, Magus of the Moon and Thalia, Heretic Cathar instead of buying all the duals and fetchlands...find out what expensive cards make the top decks perfect and attack these staples with low budget global effects. Sure, blood moon isn't very cheap, but it's still much cheaper than getting Savannah, Taiga, Plateau, the matching shocklands and all fetchlands that include R, G or W (which would be 9 in total).

enpc, I would rather not play an infinite combo, just because my LGS runs on a point system, and infinite combos are basically negative infinity. Like the kamahl and elesh combo. I think some sort of beatdown deck would be the path for me. specifically like hate bears with Gaddock Teeg and Melira, Sylvok Outcast. probably throwing in the brunt and gisela combo too.

Against abzan company cards like Rest in Peace can be steller at disrupting their combo (also works against dredge too).
Merfolk is a tougher matchup for this deck since it's a mono colored deck.

Captain Sisay's EDH REC page is a little misleading. It reports what cards everyone uses. But just because everyone uses them doesn't mean they are the best cards for the job.
- Figure out what type of deck you want to build per enpc's advice
- Find a list of legendaries that will help you achieve that goal
- Take a look at combos/synergies within your colors, reading primers are looking at decklists can help.
For example, my deck Captain my Captain, Lead us to Victory! is Combo with a splash of hatebears. Some interesting things to do with Sisay...
Brisela, Voice of Nightmares (Bruna, the Fading Light and Gisela, the Broken Blade) can be searched by Sisay since they are both legendary. Add Gaddock Teeg (searchable as well), and your opponents are gonna have a tough time.

Are you getting enough mana when playing? I notice relatively few mana rocks/dorks/ramp.
I don't like to run 3 drops with 1xx cost because sometimes I don't get 2x of one color. So I would look at cutting Solemn Recruit, Brimaz, King of Oreskos,Drana, Liberator of Malakir. I run less creatures in my Saskia deck in favor of instants, I can see an argument for either option.
-Gaddock Teeg helps against wrath
-Burning-Tree Shaman can be punishing for many opponents like Breya.
-Sram, Senior Edificer since you run SFM, Looter Scooter...
-Selfless Spirit for wipes
-Goblin Welder, low on the curve can really slow opponents starts, might be better in certain meta's. I get a lot of infinate artifact shenanigans here.
-Tireless Tracker just draws you cards and carries swords
-Duskwatch Recruiter Flip with your creature count could do some work.
I will try to post my list soon as I get time :)

Also, have you considered going into g/w. It gives access to a lot more power in my opinion. Path to Exile, Thalia, Guardian of Thraben, Voice of Resurgence, Leonin Arbiter, Ethersworn Canonist, Kataki, War's Wage, Gaddock Teeg, and Thalia, Heretic Cathar would all be some good cards to consider if you go into g/w and want some hate bears (some of these cards are obviously meant for sideboard for certain matchups).

The game Lilbrudder mentionned is here: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/124305547
The mistake he mentions is a severe tilt/brainfart on my part, in which I forgot to cast Chain of Vapor before the End Step, with an active Jin Gitaxias in play, as well as a Null Rod and an Eidolon of Silence.
The game is a bit long (1h40+), but is well worth the watch.
As far as changes to the deck are mentioned, I have to keep my own tournament list intact until the end (http://tappedout.net/mtg-decks/paradox-scepter-storm/), since no changes are allowed after registration. I'm still closely watching Lilbrudder's changes.
I like the idea of playing Everflowing Chalice in place of Urza's Bauble. My problem with both Mishra and Urza's baubles are that they draw the card the turn after, which is only good if you drop them on the turns before going off. The problem is that you also want them in your hand when you play Paradox Engine, play them for 0 to untap your rocks, and go off the same turn. I also found I wanted more 'Sol Rings' in the deck to go with Isochron Scepter (which requires at least 2+ mana to go off). Everflowing Chalice is just as good as the baubles on combo turn (since you are never going to draw that card), but can help setup the win as well.
I'm of the opinion that more wheels is really good, even at 4 CMC, so Whispering Madness is really a card I like in principle. IMHO, card draw + discard adds consistency, fill the grave, and acts as a pseudo-tutor for solutions. I just don't know what to cut for it, since I also want Candelabra and Lim-Dl's Vault, and I've already cut Llanowar and Urborg. I might end up cutting the weakest mana rock, like you did, but at the same time I find myself wanting slightly more rocks, not less. I like Candelabra on combo turn, since it fixes my colors, and I owe a few wins on Lim-Dl's Vault's "mega scry". YMMV.
I'm also unsure about Waste Not. It seems like a card I'd love to have before resolving a wheel, but not one I'd be enthusiastic to top deck. My fear is that since our deck is utterly vulnerable to Null Rod, tax effects, Rule of Law effects, Gaddock Teeg, and Spirit of the Labyrinth effects, I'd rather have polyvalent answers/removal for them than more explosive results. Targeted removal can also trigger Paradox Engine only if it finds a target; I really wish there were more cards like Abrupt Decay!
