You can play TAG and win definitely. I played those things for awhile playing basically just pairs and big aces. Some suited stuff only in position with huge expressed odds
(i.e. lots of limpers in front of me).
I was running 11/8/2.5 with 13bb/100
But now....I changed things up a bit. At these tiny levels, people stack off way light. So I figured I should amp up my pots being played, and exploit their loose tendancies. It worked out.
I increased my vpip to 28, pfr dropped to 4.80, AF up a bit to 2.84.
but now my bb/100 during this play is up to 25.5, just a tad under double my results playing tight.
You might wanna give this a try and see how it works for you. If you're comfortable with post-flop play it may actually feel a lot more natural. I'm pretty much a lagtard at heart, so playing tight kills me, but since it grinds a BR I'll do it. Finding out that I could play 30% of my hands and actually increase my winning significantly was music to my ears. GL
