I've noticed that Mastodon's system works really well on timelines, but it doesn't work when checking out proper tag searches, or when checking out user timelines from other instances.

Thus I'm gradually underway with expanding many of my smalltime cultural-topical lists on FilterLists.com to cover Mastodon as well.
