trancer99: Thank you :-) Yeah in the end food chain sidisi is just a bad food chain Tazri. Now that does not make it a bad deck by any means as FC Tazri is amazing, there is just no reason to play Sidisi over Tazri besides novelty and suprise factor. My Paradox storm decks are almost a full turn faster on average. Yawgmoth's Engine is a legit turn 2-3 deck whereas food chain sidisi is a turn 3-4 deck. It is better in almost every possible way.
Losing the 4 cards you mentioned does not hurt the deck much at all as none of them are essential and all of them have budget replacements.
Candelabra of Tawnos Isn't even worth a spot in this list imo so replace it with literally anything.
These changes simply make the deck a bit slower and less consistent at times, but you will still have the ability to pull off turn 2-4 wins with great consistency as well as grind out slower wins. It is so much better than any other deck I have made. It also makes for a very competitive budget brew

Hey, since you're "the guy" when it comes to Paradox Engine, I was wanting to get your thoughts. I'm considering re-jigging my Damia, Sage of Stone into a PE deck (still want it to be combo control). Just thought of shaking things up a bit.
The original decklist is here: Damia Morgendorffer, however I will start a new list for the rebuild. Do you think this could work?

At Profet93, I just checked out your deck and it definitely looks really nice!!! I almost went the creature-less route on this one but it would screw with my playgroup's meta a bit too much and would draw a lot more hate. I'll leave some comments on your page.
Shizo, Death's Storehouse is not needed here because Xiahou Dun, the One-Eyed already has horsemanship making him virtually unblockable. I have not come across another horsemanship user and the card would not be useful enough with my other creatures to merit a slot.
I like Overwhelming Forces more than Decree of Pain because of flavor and it being a much more political card. Sometimes you only want to knock down one unruly opponent. Also, it has no effect on your board-state (aside from drawing you extra cards).
Trading Post is a possibility. I'll need to test this out.
My grief with Corpse Dance is that I need to keep track of the order of my graveyard. Once people start seeing cards in my graveyard, everyone wants a look and which creature is the "top" creature becomes a blur. I love the card, but the added logistics make it frustrating to use. It might make a return soon and, if so, I'll cut out Necromancy. I'll probably also cut Reanimate in favor of Chainer, Dementia Master.
Snuff Out is there for flavor. I have the version with the Liliana art as well as the Liliana version of Demonic Tutor and SDCC versions of the usable Liliana planeswalkers. I could probably cut it for a foil Karn Liberated, but it has scored me some sweet kills.
Thanks for the advice!! It is definitely greatly appreciated. Always glad to run into another Xiahou Dun user!

Another good option that checks both boxes is Bring to Light

From my understanding, you can't have more than one Liliana of the Veil in play. This deck has two fetch cards, and had 4 with Imperial Seal & Grim Tutor, but learned that 4 fetches were too many. A planeswalker is usually the fetch target.

Lilbrudder: I swear, the shells for each of your Sultai decks are exactly identical XD You get a +1, of course - as always, your decks impress.
Cards that I might add:
Glimpse of Nature (because playing Legacy Elves in commander is fun)
Exsanguinate (because even without X=infinity, you generate a LOT of mana)
Elvish Champion ('cuz most everyone plays green for ramp, at least around here)
Culling the Weak (should be obvious)
Whir of Invention (tutors to battlefield are one heck of a drug, and it grabs almost all of your combo pieces though the triple blue can be harsh)
Earthcraft (you may not have enough basics, though...)
Hermit Druid (since you're already playing ALMOST zero basics, you could get away with sticking in another combo plan)
Concordant Crossroads (because the only thing better than Elves is Elves-with-haste)
possibly Immaculate Magistrate (although the 4CMC is a touch high, it gets absurd with all of the untap effects here and pumps out power like nothing else)
And finally, I would perhaps look at your Isochron Scepter-able cards in this deck. Although you theoretically have 12, most are bad things to put on Isochron Scepter (counterspells that need a target, Chain of Vapor can be copied to remove Isochron, etc). Of course, you can abuse the stack to still make the Paradox Engine combo work, but it means that Isochron is much less useful than usual outside the single combo.
Cards that I might cut: Lion's Eye Diamond (as far as I can tell, you don't have any particularly good ways to abuse it here), Yawgmoth's Will (I get what you're saying about recursion, but if you already have infinite mana it feels a bit win-more), Voltaic Key (what is that used for?), and Imperial Seal (if you're playing in paper, I just never consider the card worth the exorbitant $$$ cost).
Overall, though, the deck looks really good I really don't have much to add, haha.
