Hi, Yes, we have the filter of member of smart list in the smart lists and you can select as many smart lists as you want - by applying the filter "Member of smart list" again and again. This could be a possible reason for more loading time as the smart list looks for 5 other smart lists before it defines the audience. Could you share the purpose of getting the leads from various smart lists? If there are many leads, it would take processing time to show the members. If it's possible to define the audience in one smart list, it may reduce your loading time. Hope this helps!

Agreed. There are definitely times to do this, but consider other ways first.

if marketo takes too long to load each list, the list will time out during a batch and break.

Nested smart lists put a lot of strain on the system. I have seem them fail and break a campaign so if you can find another way to achieve the same result, I strongly encourage you to do it. If you post more detail about your smart lists, maybe we can help you come up with another solution.
