Quarantine Field Discussion

Hey Man! I'm a big Karametra fan myself, and I can share with you a few lists. Here's mine that you can look at. Feel free to ask me anything you like concerning card choices, etc. And here's another list that takes her in a different direction for reference. I'll just leave here a few miscellaneous suggestions that should be helpful.
Tireless Tracker is amazing with Karametra, as well as some other general good green draw cards like Sylvan Library and Rishkar's Expertise. Nissa, Vastwood Seer Flip and Nissa, Vital Force also synergize well.
You'll probably want to run a few more enchantments in your deck to get Karametra active more often. This can be of any kind really, as long as they provide devotion. I like to use enchantments that provide other good utility to the deck like Song of the Dryads, Awakening Zone, and Quarantine Field. Hatebear-like enchantments can work too, like Stony Silence.
Knight of the Reliquary is great for fetching out any non-plains-or-forest utility lands, and it can ramp one mana in a pinch.
Hope this helps!

If you are on a budget and want to be REALLY competitive, you might want to play Pauper instead of Legacy/Modern!
Besides that, the currently most played Tier 1 deck in Pauper is Stompy https://www.mtggoldfish.com/archetype/pauper-stompy-22958#paper, which is a monogreen deck that aims to flood the battlefield with small creatures and hit as fast and consistent as possible.
Like said here before by Dr_Jay, Legacy has a very fast metagame, and you need very consistent (and expensive) mana base to that: fetches, shocks, old duals... And this is just for start, because the other cards are also kind of expensive.
But for casual play, your deck seems very fun and strong! Here are some tips of mine:
I would reinforce that flying tokens are great, and recommend Midnight Haunting (instant speed flying tokens!) and maybe Lingering Souls (if the Birds of Paradise come out, you can generate black mana and flashback).
Intangible Virtue is great for this deck
Overrun might be a great finisher

Tamiyo doesn't really do anything in this deck; Play Future Sight instead of Magus, it's harder to deal with; Run counter spell instead of Hindering light, you know you'd rather counter that Wrath; Riptide Director is a worse Azami, Sage of Fables however buffs most of your dudes and allows for some interesting things; If you are gonna run Mystical tutor play an instant or sorcery worth it being in the deck for.
Cards worth adding:
- Idyllic Tutor: Commerce is VITAL to this deck.
- Some form of graveyard recursion: COMMERCE IS VITAL TO THIS DECK!
- More Counter Magic: Your playing blue, so play blue
- Swords to Plowshares/Path to Exile/Afterlife: instant speed spot removal
- Quarantine Field/Oblivion Ring/Journey to Nowhere: Because removal.
- Whirlpool Rider
- Aether Vial
- Return to Dust
- Sensei's Divining Top
- Aquitect's Will
Some cards that are maybes:

Most replacement effects are static abilities, such as Quarantine Field's ability. Some are the result of a spell, activated, or triggered ability's resolution. Static Ability or Replacement Effect are both appropriate terms for this situation. Because the targets are chosen as soon at the ability is put on the stack, adding or removing counters won't actually change how many things you exile. From Gatherer:
8/25/2015 Use the number of isolation counters on Quarantine Field as its triggered ability is put on the stack to determine how many targets you may choose. Once the targets are chosen, the number of targets the ability has is locked in. Changing the number of isolation counters on Quarantine Field wont change how many nonland permanents are exiled.

Note that Quarantine Field's first ability isn't a static effect, but rather it's a replacement effect that modifies how it enters.

You're correct on both counts.
Because Quarantine Field enters with counters on it, cards that double counters on enchantments will apply. If you declare X=5 (costs are based on the value you declare for X, not the other way around), those 5 counters will be doubled to 10 as Quarantine Field enters the battlefield.
Strionic Resonator can be used to copy the exile trigger (note that the first ability, which puts counters on Quarantine Field is a static ability and therefore can't be copied) and exile another set of permanents.
Note also that the second ability checks the number of counters on Quarantine Field as the ability resolves, meaning you can use activated abilities and spells in response to the ETB trigger to modify the number of counters on Quarantine Field and therefore the number of permanents you exile.

I few questions about this interaction Quarantine Field has counters on it that a lot of people over look. The card could have been a a rare but it's a mythic rare because of the counters that make more great interactions that make this card great and a mythic rare. Now tell me if I'm wrong. If im right just say so and if im missing any other interactions just let me know. Now if Doubling Season is in play (or any other card like it) when I cast Quarantine Field for say 10 XX, it would enter the battlefield with 5 counters on it, exiling 5 nonland and things but with Doubling Season it will enter with 10 counters. If this interaction is correct then it would exile 10 nonland things instead. I'm pretty sure that works but I could be wrong. But what about Strionic Resonator could I pay the 2 and tap it to copy the ETB trigger to exile double the amount. Does this work and how many counters do i get plus what other cards work like this with Quarantine Field?

The starting game plan is to drop Sram, Senior Edificer on Turn 2 and ride the card draw. An early Equipment tutor is usually spent on the either one of those two. In fact, Sram, Senior Edificer makes Sword of the Animist better as he's a consistent early game body to equip.
Ghostly Prison and Windborn Muse were replaced with Grasp of Fate and Armory Automaton respectively. I needed space for Armory Automaton and leaving Ghostly Prison by itself wasn't going to be that effective anymore.
Never switching back to Eight-and-a-Half-Tails and I absolutely don't miss him in the Command Zone. Sram, Senior Edificer's been amazing since the change. Eight-and-a-Half-Tails is only still in the 99 due to the lack of Leonin Abunas variants without shroud. He still has his issues in low mana situations.
My Commander is mostly irrelevant. It's the crazy plays I sometimes perform that cause groans. I got extremely lucky once with Argentum Armor and a Masterwork of Ingenuity copy both equipped on Turn 5.
Though I'm been happy with Sram, Senior Edificer, his days in the Command Zone may be numbered. Balan, Wandering Knight from the Commander 2017 decks has my complete attention right now. The Cat hits like a truck with little set up.
