Hi, great to see a cEDH primer. I am active in the PDH (Pauper EDH: General has to be an uncommon creature, the 99 have to be commons) community and Tatyova is there one of the most dangerous threats, understandably. I just wanted to share my Tatyova PDH Combo list as it has become so strong, that regular EDH tables dont wanna see it anymore and my local cEDH people are basically the only ones that accept her^^ But it cant quite compete on that level of course. But its surprisingly close.
It has 2 main combos:
2) Tatyova + Mystic Sanctuary + Sakura-Tribe Scout / Skyshroud Ranger / Llanowar Scout / Walking Atlas + Tidal Bore which needs something like + Whispers of the Muse / Ghostly Flicker to take advantage of the infinite mana. And it finishes via Compulsive Research loops.
I was interested in cEDH Tatyova and was about to have a look on builds for her there. Glad to see your approach here and such a well made primer.
Greetings from another Tatyova fan!

Hi, I just recently brewed up a Tatyova list that is aiming to be competitive and I wanted to ask about a few of your choices. I acknowledge that you have likely tested and played this deck more often but I am mostly curious about some of your card choices and the direction that you took this list. You can find my deck here: ~PDH~ When Lands Came to Value Town (Tatyova)
Why do you include so much card draw? I actually run zero spells or otherwise that draw me cards other than lands through Tatyova. When I first was putting the list together I had a bunch in the form of Ponder, Gush, and so on but ended up cutting them for other cards.
Some of your Land fetchings spells just seem bad. I don't mean to offend but cards like Nature's Lore, Search for Tomorrow, Shoreline Ranger, Spoils of Victory, Farseek, Kodama's Reach and Rampant Growth just don't seem worth it to me. Instead of some of these fetch spells, I run 40 lands. I was also surprised that you are not running Dreamscape Artist (Springbloom Druid just seems like a worse version). It's like a repeatable Harrow and gets you two Tatyova triggers. I would argue that that card is one of the most powerful cards in my deck behind Tatyova ofc and Mystic Sanctuary.
I decided to include more utility lands such as Bojuka Bog, Khalni Garden, and Sejiri Steppe. This decision on my part to include these was in spite of some of them not being in Green Blue but I though their value outweighs that downside. Bojuka Bog for example is better than Relic of Progenitus in this deck because you can flash it in with a creature like Walking Atlas and exile a target players bin and draw a card like relic. The thing is though that Bog is repeatable through your creatures that bounce your lands. Sejiri Steppe is similar in the way that its repeatable protection for Tatyova or another important creature.
I noticed you only ran 1 land bouncing creature. In my deck, these guys power much of the value. With them and Halimar Depths I can basically ponder each turn at least once, it allows me to repeat the ETB effects that I mentioned above, and It also allows me to get a land drop in if I missed one for some reason. Floodbringer, Oboro Breezecaller, Soratami Rainshaper are the ones I run in addition.
Now a few suggestions I have: Whispersilk Cloak, Power Sink, Universal Solvent, Vines of Vastwood, Scaretiller, Explorer's Scope (This works well in conjunction with Adventuring Gear and Aqueous Form), Seat of the Synod and Tree of Tales can be tutored with Trinket Mage, Library of Leng, Stone-Seeder Hierophant/Krosan Restorer, Spidersilk Armor (So the majority of your board doesn't die to Shrivel, Electrickery or something like that and harder for Pestilence and Crypt Rats.) Also Snap can ramp you is you have a land that taps for two and same with Frantic Search if you do want to play cantrips. Another win-con that will win you the game as soon as you combo off is Sage's Row Denizen that is assuming that you are not using Mystic Sanctuary.
Thank you for hearing me out. I am sure that there is a good reason for many of the cards I just questioned and I am excited to hear them to understand your deck better. If you have questions about my choices and reasoning I would be more than happy to explain further. I am trying to make the best Tatyova deck that I can and just wanted to know why a list with a similar end goal is running certain cards that I cut out.
Lastly, I just wanted to say that after looking through your list I am considering running: Lull and Moment's Peace because sometimes this deck has a problem stabilizing early because my playgroup sees my deck as a very large threat. Merchant Scroll, I don't know why I was not running it. Mystic Remora and Rhystic Study are just too good to pass up and I probably should have been running them. I have just one problem and that would be cutting cards. I would apreciate it if you could take a look at my list and tell me what you think.

There are various "types" of lands, for example:
In addition to these, there are also Snow lands, such as Arctic Flats, and Snow lands have their own rules. Any color produced by a Snow land or permanent may pay for a cost. They aren't very common, but they exist. For example Rimescale Dragon uses .
Now that we have established this, notice on the card Forest the typeline reads the following:
- Basic Land - Forest
What you are looking at is:
- Supertype Type - Subtype
In the case of Snow-Covered Forest, it reads:
- Basic Snow Land - Forest
This translates into:
- Supertype Supertype Type - Subtype
Cards such as Walking Atlas don't care what the land is you put into play, it only cares that it has the Land type. So yes, Walking Atlas can indeed put Dryad Arbor into play, despite being a Creature, as she is ALSO a land.
Cards such as District Guide will allow you to tutor any Basic Land (must have the Basic Supertype) or a Gate (must have the Gate Subtype).
With these examples given, notice how Evolving Wilds says to search your library for a BASIC land.
It is because the land MUST have the supertype BASIC within the typeline
Any land which does NOT contain the word BASIC is, by default, "non-Basic".

I really like this! Red and black aren't usually my thing, but this is cool. Avenger of Zendikar is amazing in landfall decks, though I know the price can turn people off. As for more budget-friendly ideas, Traverse the Ulvenwald is ok early, but can be used later as a creature tutor or to grab any land. Springbloom Druid is great in landfall decks, and Evolution Sage's proliferate could help Windgrace by keeping him pumped. Not sure if these are the kind of stuff you're going for, and I do apologize for not having more knowledge of red/black. Oh also! I use Walking Atlas in my cartography deck, and it can really help to push lands out. It's vulnerable to removal, but very useful early. Resolving it's effect at least twice usually makes it a worthwhile play.

Hiya! Long time Aurelia player here, hope I can help out!
The first thing I see- you have 15 pieces of hard ramp in your deck, but only 31 lands. Especially considering your mana-curve, 31 lands is not enough. I suggest upping your land count to 38 and cutting a handful of ramp cards as you have so many. In particular, I don't think you need Seer's Lantern, especially considering you already have a copy of Sensei's Divining Top. I also don't think you need Walking Atlas as you don't have enough lands to support it consistently. In addition, if you want to pump out big angels, you'll want to have ramp that really puts you ahead. In particular, Thran Dynamo is an excellent choice to get you from 4 mana to 8 (provided you hit you land drop, which you want to do every turn).
The next thing- your deck's ways of generating card advantage aren't very consistent, they generate it typically in ways like getting lands to your hand, tutoring, making tokens, etc. Only 3 of them actually increase the amount of cards in general you have access to. You do have some of the best ones though like Mask of Memory, Magus of the Wheel, and Tectonic Giant (I typically count impulsive draw, the exile and you can play for the next turn as card draw since it practically increases your hand size). Mask of Memory is one of the best ways to draw cards in any aggressive deck- the problem is, you need smaller creatures to stick it on early so you don't have to wait- and the cmc of your creatures is really high. If you want to go angel reanimator with your deck, wheel effects is the best card draw for your deck. You already have a copy of Magus of the Wheel, you might also want to include Reforge the Soul and Wheel of Fate. The caution with Wheel of Fate is that it's awful late game. And of course, when you can afford it, Wheel of Fortune is the best- it's the original after all.
I would also balance your mana-curve. It's high in some places and really low in others.
Last of all, some cards I recommend. Winds of Abandon is one of the best pieces of removal for EDH that has been printed in a while. I definitely recommend adding it in. Heliod's Intervention is also incredible. If you need more tutors for equipment, Steelshaper's Gift is the best you can get. Lyra Dawnbringer is a great angel for angel tribal. Blasphemous Act is one of the best boardwipes in Boros colors for EDH.
Let me know if you need any more help! I also recommend DespairFaction. He has a YouTube channel known as Commander Replay and also has plenty of great decks here on tappedout.

It kinda looks like your deck just loses unconditionally to pacifism.
The amount of ramp you have is tremendous, but you have exactly one payoff for it. Your curve ends at five..... and it's a ramp spell.
Also, a lot of your "ramp" is... kinda bad. Cards that put lands into your hand (e.g., Civic Wayfinder and Borderland Ranger) don't really ramp you, and cards that put lands into play from your hand (e.g., Arboreal Grazer and Walking Atlas) just run you out of cards-in-hand quickly and then do nothing. Combining them is only OK.
I would cut both of those kinds of cards and add a lot more control, interaction, and big-mana payoffs.
Consider the utility of:
- Return to Nature
- Vines of Vastwood
- Woodcutter's Grit
- Ram Through
- Wildheart Invoker
- Ulamog's Crusher
- Untamed Might
- Eldrazi Devastator
(These are just examples from each category, there are plenty more of each kind if you want them. You'll have to playtest to get the balance right.)
