Personally I think Vines should be a 4 of and you should run Mutagenic Growth over Giant Growth in the main. I've played a little Infect myself and that extra 2 power when you're tapped out can be killer. I also think Choke is a much better sideboard option than Autumn's Veil, and Dismember should find its way into the mainboard somewhere, maybe cut a couple Plague Myr as I don't really see where the colorless mana helps you other than maybe to cast Become Immense. Dryad Arbor could be an option here too in place of a Forest.

@ARAMbo, p0megranates, deakmana: I think what I don't like about stuff like Orcish Lumberjack and Root Maze and Dryad Arbor is the inconsistency. Sure, they're ok sometimes, but sometimes when you draw them later they're actually terrible.

I actually had Dryad Arbor (of course, right?) but I got so mad at how it was basically a mulligan everytime it was in my opening hand I dropped it. I think it events out. If it is in your opening hand, you've mulliganed; if GSZ is in your opening hand (and dryad arbor is in the library), then you don't have to mulligan. I think on balance you can just cut it. Then I traded Green Sun's Zenith for Natural Order, since the only targets for either are Manglehorn, Ruric Thar, the Unbowed, and Kamahl, Fist of Krosa. So Natural Order is cheaper, generally.

Going to try Lodestone Golem as another hate bear / sphere effect. Dropped Knollspine Dragon since it has decreasing synergy with the stax plan and was becoming a win-more card. I feel like I need more stuff that can possibly interact with combos (such as The Gitrog Monster), so I'm swapping Shamanic Revelation for Lurking Predators in an effort to just flip Ruric Thar if someone starts to go off with Dramatic Scepter or something. Also should have strong value as a Green Mystic Remora. :)

You can use Vizier of Remedies in the place of Melira, Sylvok Outcast. Vizier functions exactly like Melira in any persist combo, but also makes infinite mana with Devoted Druid. Druid also makes infinite mana with Cathars' Crusade and Ghave, so I'd actually recommend putting Druid back in the deck and replace Melira with Vizier unless you have a bunch of Infect decks in your meta for some reason.

Anyway, I'm a huge fan of Ghave. I've been playing the deck for over five years and it's probably my favorite since I've entered the format (it's not my strongest deck, just my favorite to play). My Ghave deck is here, so that you know from where my experience stems: Ghave: Baby Makin' and Alimony.

Zulaport Cutthroat is probably a straight upgrade to Blood Artist. Artist targets, Cutthroat does not (which means you can kill people behind a Solitary Confinement or something with Cutthroat).

Illusionist's Bracers is a second copy of Doubling Season when attached to Ghave, as it'll cause him to produce double the tokens and double the counters. People tend to focus down Ghave once a doubler hits field, but a lot of people tend to ignore Illusionist's Bracers because it's more innocuous. You could find room for it by dropping Butcher of Malakir whom, while he is useful and can impact the board pretty well, has an absurdly high mana cost that is hard to support off of only 28 lands (my deck runs 35 + 15 ramp with an average mana cost of 2.68. Your deck is 28 lands + 10 ramp at 3.51, which I don't find to be enough to support 7cmc cards).

I do not think the Grave Titan + Nim Deathmantle loops are worthwhile. You'll always have access to Ghave (only limited by mana), and this combo requires 3 cards outside of your Commander to function (while Ghave is 2 cards from library + Commander). I actually think these cards could be removed to better implement strategies your deck already utilizes- for example, you could add in cheap tutors. Your deck basically relies on getting Earthcraft or Ashnod's Altar, for example, but Enlightened Tutor isn't in the deck. You also have a number of key creatures used for combos, and Eladamri's Call is quite cheap after its reprint. Notwithstanding, Squirrel Nest is just a far easier, quick and dirty combo to win with Earthcraft for infinite squirrel tokens, and only takes 2 non-Commander cards to make infinite tokens vs 3.

Random additional suggestions:

Pattern of Rebirth (under $5, makes it very easy to get Woodfall Primus, Vigor, or even Butcher, etc.)
Green Sun's Zenith (finds a substantial portion of your combo pieces. With Dryad Arbor in the mana base, it can even function a 1 mana ramp)

Random suggestions for removal:

Vigor. While he's good, he's kind of durdly protection and all he really says is, "Your creatures cannot be blocked" which Champion of Lambholt already does for half the mana cost.

Planar Portal. Waaaaaay too much mana. Diabolic Intent may be a single shot effect but it finds anything for 1/6th the mana cost, and Enlightened Tutor will probably find what you need anyway.

Overall: Increase your tutor/draw count so you can more easily assemble your bread and butter 3 card combos. Maybe add in a 2 card combo in Squirrel Nest + Earthcraft because why not, right? Swap Vizier over Melira unless your meta is full of infect because it still works with Persist creatures and would enable Devoted Druid + Vizier + Cathar's Crusade for infinite green mana, which you can then spend to make infinite tokens and make everything but Druid huge. Also, possibly swap Zulaport Cutthroat in over Blood Artist, because not targeting can be relevant.

voici quelques suggestions de cartes:

Dryad Arbor tu peux le fetcher avec Green Sun's Zenith tu pourrais enlever une Forest

Wayward Swordtooth un autre Azusa, Lost but Seeking tu pourrais enlever Vedalken Orrery étant donner que tu ne peux pas jouer tes lands en instant.

Splendid Reclamation ca peut-être un solide finisher avec Hammer of Purphoros en jeu

ou

[Boundless Realms]même motif que Splendid Reclamation tu pourrais enlever Animist's Awakening

Chaos Warp et Beast Within pour t'aider a gérer des planewalker ou des créature que tu ne peux pas gérer autrement. tu pourrais enlever Life from the Loam ou un autre de tes nombreux sorcery vert qui fetch des lands ou une Forest et joué à 39 lands

Yep, Dryad Arbor is a land and a creature, which makes it easier to tutor for than a normal land.

So is the land Dryad Arbor, then? It's a land creature so I'm not sure xD

I love seeing other Karametra decks. I'm going to throw out some suggestions based on what I have in my deck, which is more mid-game with way less mana dorks. You seem to have lots of low costs to get maximum value off of karametra, but I think you are missing more kill potential. Craterhoof Behemoth is an extremely strong finisher that fits well in this deck. Akroma's Memorial can also easily win you the game. Genesis Wave would also be a fun card to pump all that ramp into. Sublime Archangel and Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite also seems fun with the creature spam you are putting out.

Some utility lands with your Knight of the Reliquary would also be useful. Gavony Township, Kor Haven, Mistveil Plains (tutorable with karametra), Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx, Emeria, The Sky Ruin, Dryad Arbor, Homeward Path, and Temple Garden are some notable cards you should consider.

You should check out my decklist and see if there is anything that catches your eye Commanding from the Throne of Abundance

I like the inclusion of auras, but you really should consider adding either/or Vines of Vastwood and Apostle's Blessing. While the auras, especially Canopy Cover do provide permanent hexproof, if you don't have a way to respond to a removal spell as you're equipping, you'll have problems. If cathedral is working, great but you really need a 4th inkmoth, they are an amazing creature. I would go up to 4 ink moth and 3 cathedral. Exalted is great but losing a turn is not. I'd also mainboard a Dryad Arbor, very nice to fetch vs a LotV trigger. Maybe cut a couple of forest for a couple more fetchlands to help with landfall triggers and deckthinning

Hope this helps.
