I would replace Claws of Gix with Zuran Orb, because the only thing you are likely to sacrifice are lands and sacrificing them for free and gaining more life is huge for the frog. Also can basically win you the game if you have Titania, Protector of Argoth out.

A very late thanks to everybody who contributed!

@ClockworkSwordfish: Thank you for the good suggestions. The level ups are slow, but if I need a late game, they're perfect. The Tithe would be great, especially in this lower-land deck, so it would be a good higher-budget addition.

@Mike94: This deck wants to be 1 cmc only, but Flickering Ward and especially Mother of Runes are great. I thought the Mother was a higher CMC, so I didn't include it.

@marcopollo: Limited Resources is a terrible, filthy card. It forces everyone to play my game, and having only 5 lands makes it hard for the enemy to get rid of it. Land Tax was in the original build for this deck, but I took it out because it was a little expensive. Zuran Orb would be nice, but... it's not 1 cmc. Faith's Shield looks like a really good card in a bad situation.

Benalish Hero looks like it could be good, but I don't know how banding works. You also said Defensive Formation works like Kytheon, Hero of Akros  Flip's flip, but I'm not seeing it. Launch the Fleet also seems like a great way to surprise someone in the later game.

Limited Resources would help level the playing field once the game gets into its later stages. Land Tax is good for thinning out your deck so that you draw more important cards. And while Zuran Orb is a zero cost item you could use it for life more robustly because you only really need two or three land anyways. Faith's Shield is also one of my favorite 1 drop whites.

If you want additional landfall triggers, then I might have a few suggestions. Ruin Ghost allows you to basically flicker your lands, which will trigger your desired landfall effect. Hallowed Ground would do well since you have no snow-covered lands listed in your deck. Zuran Orb would allow you sacrifice your lands to gain life, Copper-Leaf Angel pumps itself with sacrificed lands, and Excavator would could give one of your bigger creatures some evasion. Then you can use Groundskeeper to bring basic lands back to your hand. Hope this helps!

This is a legal play.

Mana doesn't empty out of your mana pool until the game advances to the next step or phase, so you can definitely tap your lands for mana, float that, sacrifice them all to Zuran Orb, and finally use the mana you floated to cast Armageddon.

Im wondering if its possible to use 4 lands, tapp them for mana. Then sacrifce them to Zuran Orb and after that use the 4 mana in my manapool to pay for Armagedon.

As always thx for the great responce :)

Mandalorian on Karametra need a haircut

Karametra was my first commander as well and is still my all time favorite to this day. Mine is more of a "landfall matters" deck but here are some cards in mine that you may not have considered yet!

Courser of Kruphix

Retreat to Emeria

Oracle of Mul Daya

Titania, Protector of Argoth+Knight of the Reliquary or Fetches like Windswept Heath and Terramorphic Expanse or Zuran Orb or Sylvan Safekeeper

Zuran Orb+Splendid Reclamation

Sakura-Tribe Elder+Emeria Angel=grab every plains out of your deck


Parallel Lives and Anointed Procession

Craterhoof Behemoth ends the game on the spot

Ramunap Excavator

I regret to be the bearer of bad news, but the interaction doesn't quite work. You can't pay into negative life, which means you'll be forced to sacrifice Glacial Chasm due to being unable to pay its cumulative upkeep cost.

There is a workaround, though; run Zuran Orb to sacrifice it for 2 life and Crucible of Worlds to replay it. This way, you can keep recurring it.
