jaccjacc Thanks for the upvote! Yeah, I had 4x Traverse for a while. I ended up moving away from the full set of Traverse the Ulvenwald because of how much graveyard hate is flying around right now. I totally agree it's great, but it has frequently felt unreliable in play and testing. This version makes good use of graveyard resources, but isn't hamstrung by things like Rest in Peace .

You're playing an aggressive deck so you're already in good shape to beat Tron. Early Tron can result in Wurmcoil Engine or Ugin, both of which are problematic for you. If they don't get a quick Tron they still can get to Oblivion Stone , which forces you to reset. Sorcerous Spyglass is a good option because it's good vs UW Control as well. You can name Teferi or Jace which makes it harder for them to stabilize. Then you can slow-roll your threats which makes Terminus less effective. Especially because you play some creatures with haste.
To be honest I expect burn to be a harder matchup for you than Tron.
I don't like that sideboard at all. Way too polarized. 3 Molten Rain and 3 Sorcerous Spyglass is more than enough Tron hate. In this meta I highly recommend graveyard hate. Rakdos Charm is graveyard and artifact hate (both very relevant). 4 Murderous Cut is way too many.
If you run into Dredge you'll need more than just a Rakdos charm to win. Anger of the Gods goes a long way - much further than Blasphemous Act . Very few decks should have enough creatures to make casting Blasphemous Act easy. Although Humans and Spirits and Phoenix can outclass Anger pretty easily too. Damnation might be the move.
You'll also probably run into problems with Rock decks. They have a lot of removal and card advantage.
Maybe start with this:
2-3 Damping Sphere - this also hates on Storm, which looks ugly for your deck. But if you're worried about taxing yourself then play Molten Rain or Fulminator Mage . Molten Rain and Fulminator are also really really good vs Control.
3-4 Sweeper of your choice
2 Collective Brutality - Awesome against Burn and control and combo decks and synergizes with your madness. If your burn matchup is good then don't bother with this.
0-3 Fatal Push or Dreadbore or Murderous Cut . I wouldn't play more than 1 Murderous Cut . But having spot removal for Thing in the Ice Flip, Crackling Drake , Tarmogoyf , Scavenging Ooze , etc. is a good idea.

Hey, $200 is still budget :) Some Commander decks are thousands of dollars.
For the manabase I think there's too many Islands. You want a lot more green than blue because green cards (land ramp spells) are more important to be able to cast in the early game and they can search for a blue source. Tatyova and the landfall strategy requires a lot of lands; don't be bashful in the amount you play, more the better in my opinion. To be useful cards like Burgeoning, Cobra, the Scouts, Gardener, Ranger and Atlas need a lot of lands. Khalni Garden is not worth what it does because it ETB tapped. Consider cutting it for another Forest?
You have a Breeding Pool which is great, consider Nature's Lore ? This two drop land ramp spell lets you search for and put Pool onto the battlefield. Kodama's Reach is another Cultivate. Consider Sylvan Scrying and Crop Rotation ? These cards aren't land ramp, instead they can tutor for Reliquary Tower or a Fetch land and these are pretty important lands to have on the battlefield with Tatyova.
There's no creature tutors here and that could a problem if you get overwhelmed with land support cards and not something bigger to take advantage. Consider Fierce Empath and Fauna Shaman ? Empath can tutor for a big finisher landfall creature such as Avenger or Rampaging. Fauna can be a repeatable creature tutor by discarding a dork to then tutor for any other creature. She can tutor for a big creature or a support creature like Excavator, Witness, etc. Helpful to have when you can't play a lot of expensive price creature tutors.
Budget cards ($4 or less each) to consider adding:
- Nature's Lore
- Kodama's Reach
- Crop Rotation
- Fierce Empath
- Fauna Shaman
- Nissa, Vital Force : her ultimate can happen fast and it's a source of draw playing lands that your opponents can't stop (emblem).
- World Breaker : supercharged Acidic Slime who you can recur.
- Scavenging Ooze : repeatable graveyard hate is very helpful in multiplayer Commander.
- Mana Breach : good with Tatyova/landfall, disrupts your opponents much more than you.
- Arcane Denial : sometimes you need a two drop counterspell and Denial is only one blue mana hard counter.
- Mystic Remora : one of the best sources of repeatable no mana cost draw in multiplayer Commander. It can help to fill your hand with lands to play and all the lands helps to keep it on the battlefield longer.
Cards to consider cutting:
- Animist's Awakening: already playing Genesis Wave and Wave is a much better card.
- Broken Bond
- Khalni Heart Expedition: a fine card, but a one shot effect, there's better repeatable options.
- Tishana, Voice of Thunder: this kind of draw is fine, but you don't really need it.
- Undergrowth Champion
- Skyshroud Ranger: can only use her ability at sorcery speed, makes her the least good creature with this effect.
- Rites of Flourishing: helps your opponents too much especially control players.
- Urban Evolution
- Zendikar's Roil
- Nissa, Steward of Elements: her -6 is powerful, but I think overall Vital Force gives you more.
Good luck with your deck.

WisdomComes Betrayal has been lackluster in my experience testing as well. I may board it in again in a graveyard heavy matchup one night, but for now, I've been testing out Scavenging Ooze for a body and grave hate mana dump as a bit of a meta call on my part. Unfortunately, after at least ten games after slotting it in, I still have yet to even draw into it for some reason. There are a lot of graveyard strategies floating around in my meta, so I think it can work well but I can't speak on behalf of its performance quite yet.

Hey, very good first Commander deck :)
Because of all the great Fetch lands you have consider a Breeding Pool ? Flooded Grove is another good ETB untapped Simic dual land. Hinterland Harbor works well with lot of basic Forests and Islands. Can cut Simic Guildgate, Thornwood Falls and Woodland Stream for these three better dual lands.
Other card upgrades to consider:
- Sakura-Tribe Elder > Civic Wayfinder
- Birds of Paradise > Whisperer of the Wilds
- Llanowar Elves > Heart Warden
- Scavenging Ooze > Crook of Condemnation
- Harrow > Peregrination
- Tempt with Discovery > Explosive Vegetation
- Crop Rotation > Rampant Growth
- Cultivate > Nissa's Pilgrimage
- Nissa, Vital Force > Garruk's Packleader
- Fierce Empath > Werebear
- Green Sun's Zenith > Animist's Awakening
- Sakura-Tribe Scout > Skyshroud Ranger
- Mystic Remora > Crush of Tentacles
- Horn of Greed > Zendikar's Roil
- World Shaper > Yavimaya Elder
- Eternal Witness > Sylvan Awakening
- Walk the Aeons > Part the Waterveil
- Genesis Wave > Zendikar Resurgent
More expensive cards to consider:
If you would like I offer more help. Good luck with your deck.

I like your deck.
I highly recommend Sylvan Primordial (-desert twister) It gives you insane value.
Also, Mono-G is weak to mass removal Praetor's Counsel (-eternal witness) helps get back what you lose and with Myojin...
Pesky artifacts? Annoying enchantments? Utility lands killing your fun? Say no more Wave of Vitriol (-reclamation sage) .
Also Hunter's Prowess (-Harmonize)
