The only real criticism I have is the low number of lands you are running for this kind of deck. Im not entirely sure Tatyova as a commander is the best choice for a control deck, but that decision is all on the deck builder. Perhaps with the Coralhelm/Meloku combo, you could add a Concordant Crossroads to end the game on the spot. I just happened to build my deck in a more "timmy" style so I cant give much advice on control/lockdown strategies. Cards like Tangle Wire, Mana Web, Opposition might interest you a little.
@bwanabeast5 Regarding the budget, this deck didn't actually cost me anything. I have a competitive gitrog monster deck that I was able to put on rest to make this deck. I already owned a Gaea's Cradle, and I managed to trade off resources to pick up a Tropical Island.
Regarding the "Effort" Part, that comes with any deck building process. Why wouldn't you want to play a deck that has good synergy, and play how you envisioned it? Group hug cards are great so I do run a few, but usually its a big no no giving your opponents the tools to end the game before you can. Believe it or not, my deck is actually NERF'd due to the cards im NOT running in it. If you notice there's no infinite combos, no instant win cards, no extra turns, no counterspells, just cards that work well with each other, and cards that are only as good as your opponents decks.

Galacticus This deck has had a few interesting bouts with some of the competitive commanders. Its suite of removal has performed well against decks such as a Lockdown Derevi, Empyrial Tactician deck, and both Mana Web and Heroic Intervention have been extremely useful. I will list off some of the more cEDH commander decks I have gone up against, and am testing it against different decks whenever possible.
Atraxa, Praetors' Voice Infect: The amount of tokens this deck can spit out even at an early stage is wonderful. Dragon Fodder has been the MVP against this deck, though the times I have gone against it I did not have Doubling Season in, but Worldly Tutor, which I typically used to fish for either Krenko, Mob Boss for nigh-infinite blockers, Magus of the Moon to cripple their start, or Vexing Shusher if I am preparing to go off on someone with spells and have the mana to spare to block it, be it taking out their board or burning them. I have had to play really fast against that person's particular brew of it, so I have sometimes had to mulligan once or twice to get cards early enough to keep from getting a single counter if I can help it.
Talrand, Sky Summoner Control/Mill : This deck has been pretty straightforward, going for shusher or waiting until I copy spells before trying to cast anything. His deck is not too heavy on the offense, so I am typically able to build up a board state, and ramping spells are typically ones that he doesn't counter, as he waits for Wort, the Raidmother or a burn spell to counter it. Obviously Vexing Shusher is really great against control, and I had both that and Price of Glory in before making further changes to the deck. Mana Web has proven more useful since I had to cut back on using my own instants one too many times.
Mizzix of the Izmagnus Burn/ Laboratory Maniac deck: This one was pretty back and forth, but I found that being able to copy on certain spells he cast, especially since we take the X value they pay for, it makes casting on their turn particularly powerful. Fork and Reverberate have managed to either get me a hand full of cards or get my card advantage particularly potent. I know that the most effective strategy I found was being able to copy certain powerful combo pieces like Expropriate to work against his style. I typically mulligan for those types of copy spells, but not just for interrupting the combo, also moreso to safely let creatures like Wort enter with a copy spell ready in case of counterspell, as a lot of his counterspells grant him additional value such as drawing a card or untapping mana.
Prossh, Skyraider of Kher Combo Voltron: This one has been difficult due to the flying Voltron and how quickly it can get off the ground. However, Chaos Warp has saved me multiple times during this combo to get rid of a certain permanent, which stops that infinite. With this one I mostly try to mulligan for a Blood Moon or a Magus of the Moon with the number of multilands they run, and it has worked out well so far. Past that, ramping into Wort to double-cast something like Hull Breach or even a few games I got Boundless Realms and managed to get my mana on board to start drawing like crazy. I had to play a lot more aggressively against this one, moreso ramping aggressively to try and get to where I can conspire either removal or card draw into removal.
Those are the most competitive decks I have faced with the deck so far, and if there are any super notable matchups, I will be sure to edit it in. Sorry for the mountain of text, but hopefully I answered your question!

I've updated to remove Authority of the Consuls, Elspeth, Knight-Errant, Weirding Wood, Copy Enchantment, Luminarch Ascension for Elephant Grass, Mana Web, Darksteel Ingot, Web of Inertia, Scavenging Ooze. I've found that I don't like the enchantment lands that add two of any one color like Weirding Wood, because you usually need multiple colors for a lot of the spells in this deck, so I've replaced it with Darksteel Ingot I've added Web of Inertia as a new source of attack deterrent and adding Scavenging Ooze along with it can make you unattackable. Mana Web was added as another source to tap out your opponents lands.

Not much to say, as I was just browsing, but I would just like to point out that Mana Web is no longer useful, as players can tap land in response to its ability.

First off, I love the deck. Yeah, Probably a little heavy on the artifacts, but maybe that is the support Grenzo's Onion Army needs.
Maybe Goblin War Drums Since you're going wide and wanna get through with some bodies no matter what (Bedlam may be strictly better for your meta, though). I didn't know War's Toll existed, but I use Mana Web occasionally for similar effect.
Neheb, the Eternal is a must for ramp from damage to play opponents spells, IMO. In addition, Things like World at War, Aggravated Assault, Savage Beating and, My favorite for hordes like this: Breath of Fury all get you exiling through people's decks and any chance of chaining together a winning combo. Stranglehold is nice, too if your meta loves tutors (like mine does)).
Happy Goading, my Mono Red Friend!

I arguably run as many or less basic lands than the typical EDH deck--basically because this is a very color-intensive two-color deck. So, given that there are generally three other opponents sitting at the table, a lot of times the "symmetrical" effect of Back to Basics is going to hurt me more than (at least one of) my opponents. Portcullis is interesting, but seeing as it costs four, doesn't eliminate creatures already on the battlefield, and is basically a giant Oblivion Ring in that if destroyed (and there's plenty of artifact destruction floating around your typical EDH table) everything comes back, I fail to see how it is any better than simply running a sixth "wrath" effect such as Day of Judgment or Rout.
Cards that I have previously considered that do similar things to the two cards that you have proposed and that have been mentioned here before I believe are Pendrell Mists, Mana Web, and Static Orb. If I ever were to take this deck further in the "Stax" direction that would probably be where I'd start.

Hi, nice deck, I like Bruna too and run a build almost similar to yours.
Would love to hear opinions on this. Much appreciated and thanks in advance.
