Weirdly enough, red and black, in pauper, are not the best land destruction colors. Green takes the crown, with Mwonvuli Acid-Moss, Thermokarst, Drain the Well and Reap and Sow. I really recommend that you play green as your main color. You can then play mono-green and use the ramp your land destruction generates to play big dudes that finish the game; or pair green with red and win with Roiling Terrain to stay on theme; or pair with black for even more land destruction and efficient creatures like Putrid Leech and recursion.

Nyxbloom Ancient puts a huge target on your head without actually winning the game on its own. Dryad of the Ilysian Grove is a card I was initially excited for, but I think I have enough extra land effects and Urborg, Tomb of Yawgmoth is better for me than the dryad's second ability.

Some potential cards. Most of these might be side-grades or out of budget but are worth noting in the Maybeboard. I have a few of these:
Creatures are obviously optimal, what with elf anthems and counters and stuff. I would try to squeeze in the first three if you can. The tempo of getting your commander down on turn 2 is amazing.
Fyndhorn Elves , Priest of Titania , Boreal Druid , Farhaven Elf , Leyline of Abundance , Castle Garenbrig , Llanowar Tribe , Overgrowth , Reap and Sow , Kodama's Reach , Explosive Vegetation , Nature's Lore , Ranger's Path , Skyshroud Claim , Grow from the Ashes , Emerald Medallion , Growing Rites of Itlimoc Flip, Harrow , Circuitous Route
Rishkar's Expertise , Soul's Majesty , Mirror Shield , Zendikar Resurgent , Primal Rage , Heroic Intervention , Return to Nature , Overwhelming Stampede , Overrun , Beastmaster Ascension , Loxodon Warhammer , Colossal Majesty , Rancor , Vivien, Champion of the Wilds , Blossoming Defense , Withstand Death , Titanic Brawl , Ancient Animus , Momentous Fall , Nature's Claim , Once and Future , Regrowth , Wildest Dreams , Road of Return , Creeping Corrosion , Season of Growth , Blanchwood Armor , Sandwurm Convergence , Garruk, Primal Hunter , Vivien Reid , Vivien of the Arkbow , Ghost Quarter ,
Aspect of Mongoose is nice but prevents untapping shenanigans with your commander.
Some obvious out-of-budget stuff here and some lower-powered stuff too but I'll suggest them for posterity.
Llanowar Reborn , Karn's Bastion , Forge of Heroes , The Great Henge , Incubation Druid , Loyal Guardian , Tuskguard Captain , Pollenbright Druid , Solidarity of Heroes , Biogenic Upgrade , Durable Handicraft , Planewide Celebration , Courage in Crisis , Verdant Confluence , Bow of Nylea , Contagion Clasp , Contagion Engine , Hydra's Growth , Path of Discovery , Retreat to Kazandu , Forced Adaptation , Evolutionary Escalation , New Horizons , Nissa, Voice of Zendikar , Jiang Yanggu, Wildcrafter , Vivien, Arkbow Ranger , Kalonian Hydra , Arbor Armament , Stony Strength , Savage Summoning , Hunger of the Howlpack , Soul's Might , The Crowd Goes Wild , Armory of Iroas , Weapon Rack , Predatory Hunger , Primeval Bounty

Hi Shelosmith, you can play the Ranger if you want. I got one Ranger in foil because I was playing it in the first place. It turns out, Mystic Sanctuary is the easiest to find part of the combo. You could make the same argument for Reap and Sow , which additionaly even finds Simic Growth Chamber or even Halimar Depths . So in the end I only play the best tutors, even though there would be more. In order to be as deadly as possible, the deck also needs a lot of slots for counterspells and such.
Btw, you could also add Vedalken AEthermage to better find Archaeomancer / Salvager of Secrets (or even Trinket Mage , which then could find Expedition Map for Sanctuary). But even though this redundancy is nice to have, in the end the deck wins more games when you have counterspells instead. Tatyova already is very very very consistent :) But if you can find slots für Ranger, Aethermage or Reap&Sow: Go for it! :)

Awesome, thanks for the feedback and additional insight~
I'll agree about Treefolk, and probably Sporemound. I didn't see your combo kill until you pointed it out, and at that point 'mound is too much mana for too little payoff in the combo line. And Treefolk is more cute than efficient - Tatyova is a crazy card advantage engine, and it can grind with the best of them until the end of times, or until she decks you if not careful. Treefolk helps that plan, but really, isn't needed.
Reap and Sow is expensive at 4CMC, but gets Mystic untapped. I love when land search gets me untapped stuff, so it made it into my list.
I really enjoy my suite of 1CMC blue cantrips/card advantage. I like being able to chain, to pick cards, and go from there, but it's feeling worse and worse to scry when I just shuffle anyway. Impulse, too - I like that it digs 4 deep, but since it's very common for me to tutor a land, it feels like a wasted 'dig' after I shuffle my unused stuff back. I'm considering things like Mulch , Grapple with the Past , Mental Note , Pieces of the Puzzle , or Scout the Borders . I think Taigam's Scheming / Contingency Plan seem decent. They don't draw itself, but there's always a land in-hand to pick up any card we left on top we need, or they get 5 cards out of the deck that aren't critical to the kill. Have you tried any of them? The deck is pretty graveyard based anyway, so putting stuff there isn't bad, and concentrating the deck for the brute-force tutoring we do of just drawing into the combo seems good.
Turn 3 Tatyova is feels good, and I have all of three ways to do it, between Sakura-Tribe Scout , Skyshroud Ranger , and Search for Tomorrow . Turn one land accel is the only way she comes out on turn three, so I'm going to try Arboreal Grazer (which does any land) and possibly Elvish Pioneer (only does basics, boo). Have you tried them? I'd also be happy if there were more targets for Displace out that can drop lands, just in case.
I dropped Trinket Mage for Dizzy Spell , since it costs the same, finds everything the Mage does, but also finds High Tide and Crop Rotation . I don't have the same Artifact package as you do, so having a body to flicker if need be to get more goodies makes sense, but it's still recurrable as an instant.
Thinking about it, I'm probably still more of the value-oriented deck with a combo finish, whereas you're in the hard-line combo line.
Final question - I don't get how Cloud of Faeries gets infinite mana. High Tide and Peregrine Drake , sure, but if you Flicker Mystic and Cloud, it costs 3 and you get 3 untapped lands. Is Simic Growth Chamber the final piece you need? Probably just answered my question. Good job, me.
Thanks, and awesome deck!

Easy switch outs to me:
Acidic Slime - you have plenty of destroy enchantment or artifact things.
Verdant Force - meh with what you're doing
Turntimber Sower - also kinda meh
Baloth Woodcrasher - no trample, would be chumped all day long
Seer's Sundial - you should be ramping enough that this is irrelevant to you - green and black are excellent ramping colors save this for the red or colorless deck you're going to build in commander.
Second Harvest - too situational
Deathreap Ritual - seems very situational
Zendikar Incarnate - can grow fast, no trample or other evasion
Scute Mob - dangerously fast growing - no trample or other evasion
Crop Rotation - search for a land card, put on battlefield
Sylvan Scrying - search for a land card, put in hand
Reap and Sow - destroy target land and or search for a land
Tempt with Discovery - search for a land and for as many lands as opponents search for
