I play mainly jazz blues and rock and for my OD sound i like to build up a sound by stacking my pedals set with a lower drive rather than just using one pedal and cranking the OD.
Currently my fav sound is my Tubescreamer into my Tumnus.Usually leave the Tumnus on for a nice slightly pushed clean sound and just kick in the TS to get an OD.I have a '78 Custom Badass Distortion too which i don't like.However it sounds nice with the TS and Tumnus going into it.
List some pedal combos that sound great together.
Always good to get new ideas for a sound.You might have suggestions that people haven't tried yet.It can be hard to know how a pedal is going to fit into your board and react to your current pedals.

I can do a variety of different things with a tube screamer into my muff variants. Drive for more gain with TS level up/gain 0 and muff stuff at noon; in the clean boost sense like jack white does on riffs (Dead leaves on dirty ground), add some mids for solo tones on say a Sabbath setting on the muff. Honestly, screamers work with most fuzzes (rat, fuzz face). And into other tube screamers. I like tube screamers XD  

Uni-vibes and phasers are fun with fuzzs (muffs for me personally).     
Charvel So-Cal (SH6TB/N, killswitch), Jackson RR5FR (TB6/Jazz, Drop C). Joyo pxl pro.
Loop1=Crybaby from hell, Boss PS-5, Seymour Duncan 805 or Green Rhino, EQD Hoof or Earthbound Audio Super Collider. Loop 1 into ISP Decimator II.
Loop 2 (FX loop)-Line6 M9, TC Spark Mini. Loop 2 into mxr 10band. All into a Peavey Triple XXX 212, Ibanez IL15.

i think what you have is pretty decent. i like a tonally flat OD with a more middy one, and you have that. a mid gain distortion is handy too if your amp isn't too high gain, and you have that too (i haven't tried the badass but isn't it a glorified ds1? that explains why it works with the tubescreamer, because a ds1 is scooped.)

I'll have to put the Classic T models on my to-try list. Shame the finish options there are Anachronism Gold, Nuclear Waste and Aged Clown, because in principle the plaintop is right up my alley.

6 array of Boss MT-2 will create cool heavy rain sound effect... You must try that on your jazzy song... you may add Boss DD-3 for more posibility...loool

Here's a slightly extreme "proof of concept" of combining pedals...

Wah pedal > Korg Miku > POG2.  You can get some creepy voices using the POG to lower the Miku an octave or two down.

Gosss

Add some distortion and/or fuzz to get into Cthulhu territory...

I like running my Soul Food for a pushed clean to add a bit of dirt and sparkle, I run that into my Caline Pure Sky and stack them when I want to get a nice drive sound. I like the mid/high end sound and clarity of the SF but find it a little harsh on its own if you turn the gain up, but the PS has a flatter eq and a bass control so I use it to not only add gain but to eq it to get a nice smooth punchy overdrive without any harshness and also not muddy.

My over the top suggestion wasn't a joke though it sounds amazing.

Not quite what you were asking, but I've found that an OD pedal (Sansamp British) into the gain channel (H&K St Dual El84) set for a slightly gritty sound gives a tone which is qualitatively different from either on its own. I guess that two OP pedals into a clean channel would do pretty much the same thing, as you have found, since the H&K preamp amp is pretty much SS.

For many years I used two Ibanez TS pedals, a TS9 and a TS10. I run the TS9 into the TS10. The TS9 is set for a lower rhythm distortion sound and the TS 10 for a higher level lead tone. If I want nice sustain and extra crunch I turn on both simultaneously. The TS9 really drives the TS10 and creates a big sound with sustain.
Yes I am guitarded also, nice to meet you.

Actually an SD-1 into a modified MT-2 is pretty good. I had an almost multi tracked 5150 sound going on. Which is the only way I like those amps. Keep the knobs between 10 and 2 o'clock.

No I do not think you are serious. Someone would be pretty stupid to enjoy 6 of those

As for my combo, it works best as a preamp into a power amp, or DI with a good cab sim.

The EHX 9 series of keyboard emulators are all pretty cool. I've got the B9 and C9, with the Key9 and Mel 9 high on my list. I bought them specifically to do some things you don't hear those instruments do very often.

I plan on pairing them with a polyoctave generator to get an octave up & octave down st the same time. On the "pipe organ" setting with a cathedral style reverb, it will sound like I'm at church. But if I go from there and use...

1) my Morpheus Dive Bomber, it will sound like angels falling from grace, en mass.
2) a fuzz, the chime will become a monstrous roar
3) any combination of my Arpanoid, Rainbow Machine and Downward Spiral, the resulting hallucination engine may be too much for weak minds to handle

...or I could just play "Green Onion"
