Nomad Mythmaker Discussion

Ayoooo, kind of drunk, bud.
Alright, so a couple things jump out; foremost, Cloudcrest Lake is really, really bad. I would replace it with Arcane Sanctum. Actually, with such a low curve, you could even drop down to 37 lands, dropping a basic land.
With the freed up slot, I would suggest running another wrath, or piece of spot removal. The following are staples: Utter End, Anguished Unmaking, Path to Exile, and Day of Judgment or Merciless Eviction. Cleansing Nova is a sweet, new card as well. However, for your theme, Seal of Doom may be more fitting.
Additionally, you could run Phyresis if you're feeling degenerate.
Concerning the mana base, you could run fewer Islands for more Plains. Of course, the deck would really appreciate more premium dual lands, but I understand they're expensive and not particularly exciting purchases.
Other than those points, the deck has a solid strategy, and should be frustrating to play against. Good job.

Nomad Mythmaker provides repeatable Aura recursion.
Sun Titan is the undisputed King of Recursion, and has many targets in your deck.
Sylvan Caryatid is one of the better mana dorks available. It's a decent blocker and produces both of your colours.
Rancor is cheap, effective, and recurs itself.
Sol Ring is a Commander staple. It's included in every Commander Precon deck, so it's easy to acquire. Colourless mana may make things awkward for Krond, but it's still ramp for your other spells and can pay for Commander Tax.
Reviving Melody is a great recursion spell for enchantment decks.
Spot Removal options:
- Path to Exile and Swords to Plowshares are the best creature removal spells in the game. Path is a bit on the pricey side, but well worth it.
- Sylvan Reclamation exiles two targets and can be cycled for a basic land early game to hit a land drop.
- Krosan Grip can't be responded to.
- Song of the Dryads is on-theme and hits anything. Excellent at disabling Commanders.
Command Tower is a Commander staple. It's included in every multicoloured Commander Precon deck, so it's easy to acquire.
Cascading Cataracts makes colourless mana less awkward for Krond.
Field of Ruin tags one of your opponents' utility lands.

Nomad Mythmaker is not very good in this deck, considering that you only have 2 auras, you don't really want to be relying on your opponents to have good auras in their yard to run it.
You don't really have flicker, so cards like Arashin Cleric is not a great card in the deck, if you had flicker, then it'd be decent.

I specifically meant Sen Triplets, not Sharuum the Hegemon (the real artifact esper commander of choice other than Sydri, Galvanic Genius), in fact now that I think about it, Sen Triplets sucks as an esper artifact commander, and also Celestial Dawn isn't exactly an artifact combo.
Exquisite Blood and Sanguine Bond are enchantments, so they can be Replenished/Open the Vaultsed back with ease after a Tunnel Vision/Traumatize, and the fact they need lifeloss is easy with an unblockable hexproof commander. Neither of your "combos" win the game, let alone can be Replenished.
Celestial Dawn + Caged Sun = Double you land mana, and give it perfect fixing, minus Ancient Tomb, which now only receives fixing, and Boseiju, Who Shelters All doesn't protect you stuff, ad your artifact mana is kind of sucky now.
See what happened, a 9 mana two card combo did worse than a Mirari's Wake, which is another way of saying it sucks, together. On their own, Caged Sun does very little ramping, and it outclassed by Thran Dynamo/Gilded Lotus most of the time, which I could make an argument that they were bad, and Celestial Dawn is even worse, with this deck already having an incredibly powerful landbase, it un-ramps you with Ancient Tomb and Boseiju, Who Shelters All sucks now.
Onto the next "combo:" This one you were kind enough to even put a reason for:
Okay, Mycosynth Lattice + Unwinding Clock untaps all of your permanents (lands, artifacts and creatures mostly), along with fixing each players mana perfectly, and leaving you open to a blowout with Hellkite Tyrant, By Force, Vandalblast or Shattering Spree.
Okay, so tons of value? I mean it has a major couple of downsides, this deck is fine on its own fixing, and it fixes for all of your opponents? it is 10 mana, and can't be cheated out by Replenish, so it comes late in the game, and your opponents can probably tutor a Vandalblast up be now, so tons of value? Lets, see, if we untap every one of our permanents, every turn, what ways do we have to abuse the excess of mana? 8 things, of which 5 are instants (Cyclonic Rift, Dark Ritual, Enlightened Tutor, Mystical Tutor, and Vampiric Tutor), we can also move around Felidar Umbra a lot, activate Nomad Mythmaker, or Flickerform a little bit.
Well, yeah, and the cards are bad on their own, so it is a trash combo in this deck, despite what you said.

City of Solitude is in green ;-;
Autumn's Veil? Wait no... ;-;
I guess you can run Recruiter of the Guard though. Nice synergy with the enchantress effects like Mesa Enchantress, Sram, Senior Edificer, Kor Spiritdancer, it also hits Eidolon of Countless Battles, Hero of Iroas, Nomad Mythmaker, and Snapcaster Mage.

Well, in regards to the control-type spells, your first priority is political effects. As in interacting with the players as a player. Vow of Lightning is an easy example of this, but also Racecourse Fury could be a bargaining chip to get others to fight each other. Most recently there's even Frenzied Fugue, which lets you nab anyone's creature, at least for your turn. These type of "forced aggression" and "theft" effects are fairly specific to red (at least when you forget Mind Control and its ilk). That vow card is part of a cycle for good reason though, as white of course has access to numerous Pacifism and Arrest variants, so don't forget those either.
What also isn't unique to red or white, but is certainly prolific in the colors, is land hate. You have access to things like Apocalypse and Razia's Purification to give you some perspective. Now these spells are not aura's, but Destructive Urge is and Custody Battle, when placed on the right creature, might as well be land hate too. You've got Conquer too, but that one's a little high priced mana wise (but it is pretty janky too.
Now as far as the voltron/tokens build, I can say to you the same thing I mentioned to someone else: "the amount of evasion you need is inversely proportional to the amount of removal you intend to play". If you'd going wide with tokens as well as tall from suiting up one creature, it is inherent that you won't play as much removal or need evasion I would think. Really what you need at that point is the recursion and protection effects, because your aggression will demand opponents play their own removal or lose to aggro (which that recursion and protection acts like redundancy for your commander Tiana to boot).
In any case, I would suggest keeping in mind the mana cost of the cards you play, versus the amount of "cheat" spells you have (like Nomad Mythmaker and Replenish). If you want to only cheat out Eldrazi Conscription (or similar cards) then you could build around that, but having the back-up plan to hard cast it with ramp is also a safe bet.
As another small thing, curses are auras too. wink*

Horn of Greed won't trigger from the lands you get from ramping effects like karametra or cultuivate because you don't play them.
