Quarantine Field Discussion

Nice! I don't think Quarantine Field is necessarily a good option; You're five color so you have a lot of outs against every color. I think you're kinda wasting instant slots as well. Most of the ones you have can be replaced with better alternatives- take advantage of those five colors!

Well, for starters, Pathbreaker Ibex is not legal in modern. So I would take that, Ghoultree, and Bringer of the Green Dawn, Cartouche of Solidarity. Add more Wayfaring Temple, Spectral Procession, Hanweir Militia Captain Flip, White Sun's Zenith, Overwhelming Stampede, Craterhoof Behemoth, Intangible Virtue, Quarantine Field

Just as a note, any card with X converted mana cost, X=0. I don't know if you're making an exception for cards with costs that are X, but for example, Quarantine Field's CMC is 2.

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

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.
