As you suggest, any searches for properties other than TODO, LEVEL,
and CATEGORY can be quite slow.

Have you considered using a todo search and then using secondary
filtering to limit by tag. This would enable you to use either of the
following variables:

- org-agenda-todo-ignore-with-date
- org-agenda-todo-ignore-scheduled

Best,
Matt
