Knight of the Reliquary Discussion
5 days ago
Hey man, big Karametra fan here! I have a list that is very different (here if you wanna look), and I was talking to another Karametra that tries to get an explosive land base like yours here, but I'll leave here just a few suggestions that should further enable your landfall shenanigans.
Knight of the Reliquary also can give you extra triggers while getting you any utility lands.
Have fun with Karametra!

Hey slayingmatt1234 thanks for the feedback, all suggestions are appreciated!
After looking through your deck, it does seem like we've taken quite the different direction to Karametra. When I first brewed this deck, I wanted to take advantage of the flash/recursion creatures that trigger his landfall ability into the most powerful X cost spells I could find. This led me towards a lot of mana doublers, high ramp spells, and even ramp creatures. The end result led me into 2 recurring scenarios in play; snowball out of control with 13+ lands by turn 5-6 consistently pulling Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger (My personal favourite card), or getting consistently locked down by the 3 other players who do not want to see Vorinclex every game.
Now for your suggestions, I used to run Stonecloaker for the same reason you mentioned, but I never found using him more than once a turn to be helpful, and any of the enchantress creatures at same or less cost seemed to net me card advantage more often if not always.
Knight of the Reliquary seemed to play too slow for me, I put a lot of creature tutoring so my main landfall triggers have to be multiple triggers in a turn. I found the same with Emeria Shepherd, thought a GREAT card, I just never looked to pick it over any 7+ drop that I normally tutor for. I also leaned towards creature protection over recursion, with cards like Eerie Interlude, Heroic Intervention, and Teferi's Protection, I always found the instant answer to boardwipes to lean in my favor and end up setting everyone else behind.
I will look to add more enchantments if I can find some that tackle the main decks in my playgroup. In my playgroup specifically, I found some interesting answers that I included in the deck. Ground Seal against The Scarab God deck, Blind Obedience against Yidris, Maelstrom Wielder 's Sneak Attack + Maelstrom Wanderer deck, and Stony Silence + Aura of Silence against Sharuum the Hegemon artifact control deck + Nazahn, Revered Bladesmith voltron equipment. The end result now, was a consistent easy 3v1 win.
If you had the pleasure of speaking to any of my friends in my playgroup, they'd tell you that in play, this deck is a TERROR. Ulvenwald Hydra is a champ for cheating Rogue's Passage into play into an easy 20+ damage, an early Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger through Natural Order always locks my opponents to pay from behind, and Worldspine Wurm becomes so easy to play with Fauna Shaman + Garruk, Caller of Beasts / Selvala's Stampede. Any of the instant X spells with a mana doubler guarantees a win ( White Sun's Zenith, Entreat the Angels, Hydra Broodmaster ). A well timed Rishkar's Expertise into Overwhelming Stampede or Genesis Wave closes out easy.

Hey Man, I love Karametra. I have my own deck here if you wanna look. My deck seems to be in a very different direction from yours, so there are a lot of things I am hesitant to suggest, but I'll give you a few ideas I think you should definitely include.
Speaking of land searching Knight of the Reliquary can give you easy access to your utility lands and give you more landfall triggers.
Speaking of landfall, Emeria Shepherd is friggin nuts with Karametra and you should put her in your deck.
In terms of cuts, my only real concern with your deck is that I see that you are running all of the enchantresses but you have relatively low enchantments. Most enchantress decks have around double the enchantments to ensure that the enchantresses go off consistently. If you put all of them in at once right now, you might find them dead more often than you want. What I do is I just put in a the ones that require the least investment(Argothian Enchantress and Eidolon of Blossoms). If instead you want more enchantments, I recommend putting in a mix of enchantment creatures like Courser of Kruphix or Aegis of the Gods, some pillowforty enchantments like Pariah or Privileged Position, and some of the good ramp enchantments like Burgeoning, Exploration, or even Wild Growth.
Hope this helps!

i would just like to point out that you could also easily swap the black cards with green and run
Undergrowth Champion (infinitly large creature),
Retreat to Kazandu (inf life or infinitly large creature),
Knight of the Reliquary (tutor for sejiri steppe)
Jaddi Offshoot (also inf life)
Lotus Cobra (inf mana)
another black card i saw was:
Scrib Nibblers (inf mill)

I would go more all-in on the landfall-style plan. Check out 3 colour charms from Alara block and 2 colour charms from Ravnica blocks for more multi-purpose cards. I'd use all of your Maybeboard cards except Kefnet the Mindful too.
Ideas: Vinelasher Kudzu, Dreamscape Artist, Pilgrim's Eye, Path to Exile (Over Swords to Plowshares), Deprive, Knight of the Reliquary, Oracle of Mul Daya, Thaumatog, Lithatog, Scapeshift, Aggressive Mining, Dryad Arbor, Riftstone Portal, Solemn Simulacrum, maybe Awaken cards from new Zendikar?

Thanks for the comments and suggestions dzapf2008.
Thanks for the comments and Upvote KatsuShibata.
FNM today, I went 1 - 3 losing to Living End, a Selesnya land recursion deck featuring Courser of Kruphix, Knight of the Reliquary, Ramunap Excavator, Horizon Canopy, Azusa, Lost but Seeking and some other great cards, and a Grixis deck which had Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet, Thoughtseize, Inquisition of Kozilek and Tasigur, the Golden Fang. I never had an answer to Kalitas, Traitor of Ghet both games, my Path to Exile was always snatched, which destroyed my deck. I beat a home brew deck which had a win con of Bloodchief Ascension and Mindcrank, which never went off... thankfully.
So, the deck needs some more interaction and some more removal, I think.

I would suggest Sejiri Steppe as it helps protect your Knight of the Reliquary should it be the target of a removal spell. Spell Queller obviously helps with that too, but I have also found Sejiri Steppe to be a good extra layer of redundancy as it can also act like a Kessig Wolf Run. I have also toyed around a bit with Commune with the Gods as a way to dig for Retreat to Coralhelm. I'm curious what your thoughts are on the card?
