Creature — Fungus
Devour 2 (As this enters the battlefield, you may sacrifice any number of creatures. This creature enters the battlefield with twice that many +1/+1 counters on it.)
At the beginning of your upkeep, create a 1/1 green Saproling creature token for each +1/+1 counter on Mycoloth.

Karametra is one flexible General and the +1 counter / token theme can certainly be viable with her.
By looking at your list, however, I found quite a couple of cards that seemed a bit underwhelming to me.
Also you need more creatures (and maybe a bit less lands since your general already pumps enough as is (I'm no Karametra expert, but 38 seems decent to me)).
Karametra being the way she is, will give you access to tremendous amounts of mana in the late game, so you need to make sure you have cards where you can just dump loads of mana into. Hydra Broodmaster is a good budget example.
I'll shoot some good Token / +1 synergy cards to give you an idea:
Ant Queen, Scavenging Ooze, Archangel of Thune, Avenger of Zendikar, Mirari's Wake, Trostani, Selesnya's Voice, Emeria Angel, Craterhoof Behemoth, Beastmaster Ascension, Glare of Subdual, Ajani Goldmane, Doubling Season, Hardened Scales, Parallel Lives, Mycoloth, Soul of the Harvest, Rampaging Baloths, Kalonian Hydra.
If those cards ring any bells to you, I can go into vastly more detailed suggestions, as I want to be sure I'm heading into the right direction beforehand. If not, please make sure I understand the exact theme you're going for so I can try to help :)

I LITERALLY just built a deck doing this in these exact colors. If you focus on saprolings, I strongly recommend using/buffing Tana, the Bloodsower and Ivy Lane Denizen with Mycoloth and Ghave, Guru of Spores. In fact, you may consider running Tana and Ravos, Soultender as your commanders! Check out my deck because anything I have to tell ya would come from there! Nana Tana's Getrekt Stew

Hi, thanks! Your advice is nice and well meaning but I have reasons as to why I don't run most of the cards you've mentioned. Mostly it comes down to me trying to make this deck more competitive, and since most Modern decks are close to winning on turn 4-5, most slower cards can no longer be in this deck.
Mycoloth can be great, but it's also a fantastic way to lose all your saprolings to a single removal spell, or even a simple Vapor Snag. Verdeloth the Ancient is a really nice card as well, but at six mana it's a bit too slow - but I might consider running it again after I manage to get a set of Utopia Sprawls.
Natural State is chosen over Sundering Growth because in a fast paced game, that one mana can make a huge difference - and most Modern decks don't run enchantments and artifacts with a CMC above three. But I'll think about it, maybe it'd be a good change.
Growing Ranks is also a bit slow, and not as powerful as the other enchantments in the deck, so I decided not to use it - a single saproling per turn is not that impressive considering that initial mana investment. I do not have or can afford Doubling Season, but probably wouldn't use it anyway if I did, because once again, that one more mana compared to Parallel Lives makes it not worth it, and counters are not as important here as they might be in another deck.
I've thought about Essence Warden, but since she's not directly helping me create saprolings or win the game, I feel that the creature spot is better given to something else. Aetherflux Reservoir is neat and I might actually try to use it on another deck of mine, haha.
And finally, for flying - I don't have trouble attacking anyone with flying - the one problem I have is -defending- against them, since an army of nonflying blockers is still helpless against even a single flying opponent. But sadly Bower Passage does not help with that.

Clan defiance, quest for the gravelord, eternal worrior, order/chaos, brutal hordechief, viridian joiner, phytortitan and blind obedience are somewhat lackluster cards, I would suggest running a couple of high impact cards like Odric, Lunarch Marshal, Elesh Norn, Grand Cenobite, Gisela, Blade of Goldnight, Aurelia, the Warleader, Breath of Fury, Cathars' Crusade, Berserkers' Onslaught, Avenger of Zendikar, and Mycoloth are incredible in saskia decks. I know how it feels to have nobody help with a deck because you're new, I'm happy to help

Hi, nice deck! I enjoy saprolings, and run a g/w variant myself.
Also, life gain never hurts, and throwing in a couple Essence Warden helps you survive. Pair that with Aetherflux Reservoir, which also benefits from the Paradox Engine infinite combo mentioned earlier, and you got another win con.
Oh, and if you have trouble with flying, sideboarding Bower Passage could help. I hope this helps!
