Yeah, that was the idea for Gruul Turf, to target itself once you had set up a reliable mana base. And if you added a card like Exploration, you could play both normal mana and turf.

Athraithe, Exploration is played a lot in decks that want to ramp turn 1 or decks that have a lot of draw power or a land high land count. Burgeoning is played less often because not getting to play things with the lands you drop until your next turn is a downside, but it still has a place in certain decks.

@ SIES_Abzan Sorry I haven't got back to you sooner! It has been a long week for me, so I hope it's fine that I am responding a little bit later than I would have liked :) Before I get into cuts, I do want to go over a few more cards which should definitely be considered. This will probably make my list of cards to cut longer, but I definitely forgot some cards you should add to your deck!

Add-Ins:

Felidar Sovereign - I didn't realize you were running a lifegain sub-theme, but since you are, this card is almost a must. It can win games out of nowhere and gives you a way to win that doesn't involve combat. Test of Endurance - Same as above except the life threshold is 50, rather than Felidar Sovereign's 40 life. Austere Command - While it is a little expensive (both in mana cost and real-world money), Austere Command provides a board wipe that is always relevant and incredibly versatile in its uses! Aura of Silence - Amazing artifact/enchantment hate that is also an enchantment itself. This card has won me so many games in my own decks! Sphere of Safety - Discourages your opponents from attacking you and scales incredibly well with all the enchantments you are running. Ghostly Prison - A cheaper, but ultimately less effective Sphere of Safety; still worth consideration though! Rest in Peace - A piece of graveyard hate that can be incredible depending on your meta and the amount of black decks that see play. Exploration - Absolutely amazing enchantment that helps you ramp and makes for a great turn 1 or 2 play! Ajani, Mentor of Heroes - A great planeswalker who synergizes with both your lifegain and voltron gameplans! However, it might be a little outside of your budget. Winds of Rath - Another synergistic board wipe that protects your creatures while killing those of your opponents! Unflinching Courage - Great aura that provides lifelink and trample, two very relevant abilities for your deck!

Cuts:

Humbler of Mortals - Too expensive for the effect he provides :( Plus, you should try to lower the number of creatures you have in favor of more enchantments. Fate Unraveler - Doesn't synergize with what your deck is trying to do and will most likely aggravate your opponents, rather than win you games. Brain Maggot - An underwhelming creature, which frankly sucks in commander as it doesn't scale well in multiplayer. Dictate of Erebos - Your deck isn't trying to sacrifice creatures in order to abuse effects like this, so I would just get rid of it in order to make room for a more synergistic enchantment card. Treasury Thrull - I feel like it is just too slow and expensive to be good for a deck like this. Benefaction of Rhonas - A pretty bad draw/tutor card if you ask me. I would replace it with either Abzan Charm, Idyllic Tutor or Sterling Grove!

That's all I have for now, contact me if you have any more questions! Good luck!

Hey there, I really like your deck. The synergies are strong and it looks like it can do countless fun things.

I run a Selvala, Explorer Returned enchantress build that often finds Karametra with one of the tutors.

I generally found Starfield of Nyx and Opalescense to be underwhelming. Most opponents have trouble getting rid of multiple enchantments, but once they become creatures can deal with them. So I found myself holding them in my hand instead of playing them. You want to play your enchantments to keep the engine going.

There are two auras for creatures i would recommend running even in a deck that focuses on going wide. Bear Umbra untaps your lands when you attack and keeps the engine running. Ancestral Mask Is a great way to one shot people, putting it on your commander often gets its power above 21. This has saved me a few times when an opponent would have won the game if they were allowed to untap for their turn. Heliod's Pilgrim can fetch both.

Nykthos, Shrine to Nyx is one of the best cards in my deck. It often taps for crazy amounts of mana. Mirari's Wake is insane ramp, even more so with Karametra fetching all those sweet plains and forests. Magus of the Candelabra works incredibly well with lands that tap for more then one mana. Arbor Elf Also works great with enchanted lands, combined with Wild Growth or Utopia Sprawl Karametra can come down on turn three.

I really like Congregation at Dawn with Selvala. The synergies are not as strong with Karametra, but putting Eidolon of Blossoms on the top followed by two echnantment creatures lets you play three creatures and draw an additional card (or more if there is another enchantress effect).

Exploration and Burgeoning let you play excess lands you draw from enchantress effects.

Earthcraft would do absolutely insane things in your deck, you could probably play your whole deck in a single turn once you are properly set up.

Good luck with your deck, I'm sure you will have tons of fun playing it.

Kodama's Reach, Cultivate, and Exploration belong in any deck with green.

I think you need at least 6-8 ramp spells, which can also include ramp artifacts. You NEED sol ring.

Avenger of Zendikar is also kind of a green staple.

I'll post some more ideas later

I actually just am in the works for getting Blood Artist from someone and giving Exploration to someone. Is there anything else you'd be interested in instead?

I was going to say I rarely have a bunch of lands in my hand to make those cards worth it, but I just got back from a match where those REALLY would have helped lol. I have each of them but not sure what I'd replace. I can probably fit Exploration in though. Thanks for the feedback and upvote! :D
