Nah, Gaddock Teeg stops how many decks? What some storm payoffs like Aetherflux Reservoir? so it'll make Zur the Enchanter use a Snap on it on combo turn, big deal.

Really it sometimes hurts Captain Sisay's Paradox Engine and Teferi, Temporal Archmage's The Chain Veil occasionally, and most decks have good long-game and don't need to combo out immediately, waiting to remove it.

What decks do they need to stop? Protean Hulk, Hermit Druid, The Gitrog Monster, all 'when this creature dies' triggers, Most Pod lines with Karmic Guide, all of the reanimator/Worldgorger Dragon lines, like Kess Twin with their silly Intuition for Laboratory Maniac, Demonic Consultation & Reanimate or Buried Alive for Phyrexian Delver, Kiki-Jiki, Mirror Breaker, and Deceiver Exarch. It hurts so much of the fast-combo decks, and is in incredible hatebears colors, I don't think it is just 'on par' with Gaddock Teeg, Gaddock Teeg would have to be lucky to be 'on par' with Anafenza, the Foremost.

Oh yeah, with Captain Sisay, Anafenza, the Foremost also shuts down the main Paradox Engine, Bontu's Monument, Mikaeus, the Lunarch/Saffi Eriksdotter, Captain Sisay, Bow of Nylea line for infinite damage by constantly recasting Mikaeus, the Lunarch/Saffi Eriksdotter from recurring it.

LabManiac_Sigi: I originally tagged ShaperSavant but I would like to push for Saffi Eriksdotter to be bumped up to the High Power section. She originally sat at tier 2.5 (I know that doesn't mean much) but I believe she embodies the philosophy of high power. She isn't as consistent as the competitive decks, however she is still a fast combo deck, with her comfortably able to combo off around the turn 6 mark (I have goldfished multiple turn 4 combos, but not as consistently).

If you want I can supply a few decklists (both mine and other people's) which show a few different optimised builds.

So I put together a Protean Hulk vairant of my Saffi Eriksdotter deck. I would be keen to get people's feedback, especially on the Yisan, the Wanderer Bard line that I'm thinking of including for it:

Just an FYI, Saffi Eriksdotter is also missing from the list.

thewyzman on Mayael EDH Primer

Also, since so many decks straight-up out-tempo Mayael, i'm tinkering with a build with cards like Eidolon of Rhetoric and Sphere of Safety, to go ALONG with Iona, Shield of Emeria, Dragonlord Dromoka, Void Winnower, and Grand Abolisher. I guess I would rather my deck just be faster and more consistent, but slowing the table down seems to help me keep pace. A number of my fellow players are CEDH players, and it seems there are several competitive decks that are effective using a stax-style. Personally, I'm just trying to find a build strategy that works, and this primer is quite inspiring when I feel like getting back to the basics.

Because of how big and vulnerable my board gets I also run Saffi Eriksdotter and Dauntless Escort to compliment Avacyn and Spearbreaker Behemoth.

No Wayward Swordtooth in the list?

I feel like you missed to opportunity to call this deck "Najeela Podracing". Think that'd be a nice name to make it popular in the cEDH community with.

Love the list, might copy some things. If it came to changes, I'd probably try Saffi Eriksdotter. I know you briefly touched on her in the description. Given that you have Karmic Guide and Loyal Retainers in the deck already (both of which combo with Saffi), I'd give it a shot.

PookandPie on Broken Sisay? HELP wanted!

So here's an idea:

You want to win via Planeswalkers, correct? It takes up a lot of slots, but here's a viable way to do that:

Sisay > Paradox Engine > Mox Opal (float 1) > Mox Amber (float 3) > Play Seton, Krosan Protector > Rishkar, Peema Renegade. I'd also recommend running Kamahl, Fist of Krosa, which if you grab a 2 mana cost spell will let you float an extra 2 mana to cast him, allowing you 5 mana per iteration (which, with Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, you could wipe everyone's lands but yours and then Overrun to win the following turn).

Then get Bow of Nylea and Saffi Eriksdotter, which you can loop to generate extra mana using the above.

Then go grab The Chain Veil. You can now ult your Planeswalkers as many times as you wish because you can cast all of them and use them as many times as you want.

Note, though, that this is strictly inferior to the standard Sisay win condition route. The whole goal of Sisay is to run as few dead cards as possible, which the above loop uses several, plus the Planeswalkers, that will clog the hand. Swapping to a loop without the above and going a Stax route will probably be the strongest avenue to play if you're in a cEDH meta, but if you're just wanting to have fun with your group and toss some Planeswalkers around, Sisay can do that too (and shouldn't be so overbearing that your playgroup hates her).

enpc on Selvala, Explorer Returned cEDH Primer

It's a tricky one. While I don't disagree with any of your points, I do know the drawbacks of summoning sickness with it (I run Dryad Arbor in a Saffi Eriksdotter deck, it's different but similar enough). You do run both Concordant Crossroads and Thousand-Year Elixir which can negate that effect, however I do think that missing out on a turn two Selvala might be enough of a drawback to not run it.

Also, I have had good results with Cloudstone Curio as a combo engine enabler. It gets dumb when you have a haste enabler and two mass mana elves, but is also really good with Paradox Engine.

Another card worth considering is Mirror Entity. It can fill the same roll as Shalai (from your backup win condition description), creates a combo with Wirewood Symbiote (makes symbiote an elf by paying 1 and then returning it to untap a mass mana dork) and also helps protect against Toxic Deluge which you mentioned. Just a thought.
