The correct way to build Sisay is to build a deck that features the Storyline Arc for the Invasion block! I think every member of the Weatherlight crew now has physically printed copies that exist, so you should build a Weatherlight Tribal deck. They all conveniently happen to be Legendary creatures too, so that you have synergy with Sisay. You could even include the Legends from the new Weatherlight crew in Dominaria too!
Then, when they finally print Yawgmoth, you can have an awesome Duel between Sisay and Yawgmoth, a way to recreate the final battle of the Invasion block!
That is all.

As far as disruption goes, it sounds weird and counter-intuitive, but I'm going to recommend Wave of Vitriol. That card is no joke. The amount of games people scoop after it resolves is hilarious, and it really does make things a ton easier for a mono green creature based deck. It's a death sentence for Theros Gods too, which is sometimes nice considering how persistent they can be.

Quote from Ken Carson »Well, Proteus Staff is sold out along many online retailers and all my local stores. Pretty sure it's because of this little guy, so be prepared to see him a lot. I literally got the last one on Card Kingdom after there being about 12 earlier in the week, and this was after I hit 4 LGS.
Quote from Ken Carson »Not certain how Cloudstone Curio + 2 mana rocks + Paradox Engine is lethal. Curio only triggers off nonartifacts. And Fblthp can’t return himself so... what am I missing?

Edit: Just had a peek through your list as well. I dig it! Seems like a much more focused approach to the combo. I think if your deck ever gets an activation off you should just win.
Curio is some neat tech, especially with all the effects that put cards from your hand on top of your library.
As Darrenhabib mentioned earlier in the thread, if you've got the money LED might be worth consideration.
Another thing, you want some things you can hit off Staff in case Fblthp gets shuffled and you need to dig him out. I see Vedalken Shackles in your list which will help with this. I would also recommend the man-lands, Mutavault, Faerie Conclave, Blinkmoth Nexus, and Inkmoth Nexus as other ways you can do this.
I like new Jace in there as well, allows for Maniac win with out the creature gumming up the process.
Quote from Astro_Man »Idk if I can name my Deck "Fblthp had always hated crowds." anymore tho. Do small crowds count?
Quote from Ken Carson »If you can get him on top of your library, you can use Oracle’s Vault to cast him as well.
Quote from Astro_Man »Quote from SuperMJ »Those options you mentioned for placing him on the top of the deck are in my version so far. They're decent options for getting him "in the library". Maybe it will have to play more like Miracles.
That's kinda what I'm thinking at this point. I mean once you activate Staff you should just win the game. The question is how do set that up, and how do we survive until we can set that up. I think miracles is a good option here. The cards above were all cards I was planning on running anyway, so adding stuff like counterbalance and temporal mastery shouldn't be too difficult. Any other good miracle cards for edh?
