Unwinding Clock Discussion

My broad reccomendations for the direction are to go with more of an artifact based playstyle incorperating ways to trigger Macar as many times per turn as you can while clearing the field. then use all your mana for a in shot kill on everyone. a few card reccomendations are as follows but its just what caught my eye Royal Assassin Skirsdag High Priest Scrap Trawler Avatar of Woe Sheoldred, Whispering One Karn, Silver Golem Tragic Slip Tendrils of Corruption In Garruk's Wake Jandor's Saddlebags Strionic Resonator Voltaic Key Icy Manipulator Glaring Spotlight Arcane Lighthouse Illusionist's Bracers Koskun Falls No Mercy Holdout Settlement Hero's Downfall Beacon of Unrest Night's Whisper Unwinding Clock Blinkmoth Urn Scythe of the Wretched Puppet Strings Paradise Mantle

My commander deck right now is CVT Teferi, and it’s pretty darn close to tier 1, so I have some suggestions. Im assuming your taking suggestions since you have it tagged as needing help.
Force of will, ugin, static orb, cursed totem, BSZ, grim monolith, transmute/Power arti, rewind, mana vault/crypt, gilded lotus
1) What I would take out
A: Forbid is a good counterpell, but bad in this deck. You don’t want to empty your hand that much to get a non-free counterspell back to your hand. You definitely want a full hand.
B: Jace, Architect of Thought doesn’t do anything in your deck unless he ults, and he’s probably not going to in a competitive meta.
C: Everflowing Chalice is a decent ramp card, but it’s definitely not the best one, and the fact that it only turns on the CV combo of you play it T4 means it’s not super viable.
D: Paradox Engine. Amazing card, and I considered putting it in my deck, but CVT can win pretty easily without it, and engine only adds a small amount of synergy and combo to what is played in the deck to the point that I would rather play another stax piece.
F: Unwinding Clock doesn’t do a whole lot in the deck and doesn’t turn on the combo.
G: Mind Spring is better replaced with any instant speed draw x or any target player draw x
I: The creature teferi. Although he’s great against other counter decks, since CVT plays free counters and usually uses them to protect the combo, and creature teferi’s first ability is useless in the deck, and there aren’t a lot of competitive counter decks other than CVT out there, he’s not super good and it would be better to just play Dispel.
2) what I would put in
I’m not sure what your budget is so this might seem very overpriced.
B: Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is played in a lot of competitive CVT decks, because he basically locks down creature decks like sisay (board wipe the turn he comes down and bolt sisay whenever they try to play him)
G: Transmute Artifact allows you to go for the combo easily
H: Power Artifact goes infinite with basalt monolith or grim monolith.
I: Extraplanar Lens acts as a static high tide, ramping You whenever you play teferi.
J: Rewind is possibly a good counter choice as it allows you to leave only four mana up and be able to respond twice.

Given the Power level of this deck I am surprised you had not gone with a 'Demonic Tutor' - unless you are keeping to the restriction of 10pts of the EDH format.

Paradoxical Outcome and a bunch of 0 cost artifacts, coupled with some artifact cost reduction cards like Semblance Anvil will go a long way to the storm strategy. You are also running Disc, so putting an Unwinding Clock, Darksteel Foundry, and Mycosynth Lattice will give you a hard lock once established.

TheRedGoat: I'll keep those power boosters in mind, but I haven't had power issues since changing commanders to Traxos.
Struyk: Hexproof yes. Shroud, no. Once my commander has shroud, I can't target him to equip anything to him, which defeats my gameplan of loading him up.
Cippo: Sea Gate Wreckage is only in the deck once (you'll see this if you sort by Type). It's listed twice because it fills multiple roles within the deck (both as a Land and a source of card draw). I personally prefer Shrine of the Forsaken Gods over Temple of the False God because the Shrine always gives me mana. It sucks pulling the Temple in an opening hand or drawing it early game and having it be a dead land for the first few turns. You're absolutely right, I need a Metalworker in here... someday when budget allows.
Litdaze: Artifact board wipes are painful. Other than Warping Wail, I also have Darksteel Forge but that's about it. And yeah, I've increased the land count a bit. I find I have tons of ramp, just need to make sure I've got 2-3 lands to get me started.
Cereal_Killer: On their own, the Kaldra equipment have nice effects but are expensive to cast/equip. With 99 cards and very few ways to tutor any of them, I don't think I'll ever see the full set in play at once, which really lowers the value of them. Seems a better fit for a 60-card deck where you can include multiple copies (and have a smaller library) for a better chance of hitting all 3.

I like a lot of these suggestions and have them in mind for the future, I have a Scrap Trawler, just when I was testing it I found that it was difficult to put fatties back into my hand where Myr Retriever was easily able to grab them. I'm slowly picking at cards to throw into my deck, also the thing I like about Storm the Vault is that I can really get easy use out of my Planar Bridge since the cost to use it is not discounted itself, plus with an Unwinding Clock and a Mycosynth Lattice I can tutor fatties every turn with easy and still have mana up for other spells assuming Omniscience isn't in play.
