If Lotus Vale would come into play, sacrifice two untapped lands instead. If you do, put Lotus Vale into play. If you don't, put it into its owner's graveyard.

I'm working on a Borborygmos Enraged EDH list and got quite a bit of inspiration from this deck. I've found a few cards that you might get some value out of in this deck in my deck building process.
Insurrection is an excellent win-con in multi-player EDH games. Successfully casting this card can often just end the game right there.
Praetor's Counsel gives you an infinite hand size for the rest of the game and puts your whole graveyard in your hand. That's incredibly valuable when you have 20+ cards in your graveyard.
Decimate is a really solid piece of removal.
The rest of my recommendations are lands, since part of the theme of my deck is "lands matters".
Glacial Chasm can let you sit behind a wall for a few turns while you build up your army.
Terrain Generator can help you drop some of those basics onto the battle field a bit quicker.
Best part of all of these is they are fetch-able by much of your land search cards, giving you a "toolbox" to pull some great abilities from.

I would also like to see what other lands could fill the spot of the tron lands in this deck. I rarely if ever assemble tron and there are many other lands that I could play in this slot. Clear favorites include The Tabernacle at Pendrell Vale, Bazaar of Baghdad, and Mishra's Workshop, but I am looking for lands that aren't as expensive. Lands such as Lotus Vale, Barbarian Ring, Ghost Quarter, Mutavault, Spire of Industry, Balduvian Trading Post, Gemstone Caverns, and lands like Keldon Necropolis or Blighted Gorge are all replacement options. Anyone have experience running these lands in a more competitive environment and have any tips?

Ideally for my Tatyova deck I would have all the fetch lands, Crucible of Worlds (Which I just got), a Strip Mine as an alternative yet douchey win condition if the game goes on too long, Worldly Tutor, Green Sun's Zenith, Magus of the Future, Dryad Arbor, Vedalken Orrery, Leyline of Anticipation, Thrasios, Triton Hero, Thousand-Year Elixir, Thawing Glaciers, Sylvan Library, Sensei's Divining Top, Seedborn Muse, Murkfiend Liege, Scorched Ruins, Roil Elemental, Rhystic Study, Petrified Field, Patron of the Moon, Pathbreaker Ibex, Oboro, Palace in the Clouds, Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Lotus Vale, Kodama's Reach, Into the Wilds, Hall of the Bandit Lord, Breeding Pool, Flooded Grove, Sylvan Scrying, Expedition Map, Eternal Witness, Dreamscape Artist, Concordant Crossroads, Command Beacon, Chromatic Lantern (IF you have all the fetches), Cephalid Coliseum, Boundless Realms, Blackblade Reforged,Alchemist's Refuge. Not sure if I will put all these in but most for sure and there are some good ideas.

Lotus Vale. And I would at least look at anything with a cumulative upkeep that would normally not be worth playing but if you never have to pay upkeep...

Thanks for the suggestions shub! I like Scorched Ruins a lot, so I also added Lotus Vale. Caustic Caterpillar is indeed probably a better fit than Reclamation Sage the problem remains that I don't know how to fit it in the deck

I'm not super familiar with Stax, but since you've got so much land destruction, maybe add a single (potentially) big mana rock like Gilded Lotus, Gemstone Array or Everflowing Chalice to keep whenever you Cataclysm? Could in the same vein add greedy lands like Orzhov Basilica, Dowsing Dagger Flip (bonus: extra death triggers!) and Lotus Vale. There's also Black Market and/or Revel in Riches which are more on-theme in terms of death profit but I dunno if they'll draw too much hate.
Also, Forbidden Orchard for an extra death trigger every rotation?
Anyway, cool thing you've got going on here, will keep an eye on it.
