Mysterious ways effect order

I'm trying to figure out how to order the effects in mysterious ways. The main effect in that song is the korg A3's reversed envelope, but what kind of distortion should I used, and should it be before or after the wah in the effect chain? (I'm not using a korg but a Digitech RP200A, which has the same backwards envelope on it. It sounds almost perfect until I try to add in overdrive, I just don't know what kind to use and where to slot it in...)

Any help would be appreciated. Also, is there a flanger or chorus effect also used in that song? In the live elevation version, you can hear it sort of "sweeping" just before they start playing...

you won't get it withouth the a3, but it's overdrive before, and not that much. Edge uses AutoWah and Flange on the a3

Ok, so distortion, then wah + flanger, or flanger first?

In my effectschain I use a Boss SD-1 super overdrive before the A3 and it sounds fan-f***ing-tastic. I played it once and the whole band said Mysterious Ways?
