Love your take on Karametra! It plays very different to my own with the heavier emphasis on green and landfall.

Eights tails basically gives your stuff hexproof for 3 mana. It's soooo strong. He can also do shenanigans like make your Creatures unblockable by making opponents Creatures white and your stuff pro white.

Bruna's cast trigger to recur a human or angel is awesome. I run a lot of both of those types. It's basically another karmic guide.

Gisela is really only there to give Odric more keywords and because a melded Brisela can shut down an opponent. The more competitive an opponent the lower their deck's CMC usually which makes Brisela even more effective. It's especially good at stopping opponents from casting counterspells since the majority of those are CMC 3 or less.

Academy Rector is always a staple for any white deck with enchantments if you can afford it. I run it alongside the tutor because they serve different purposes. A rector on the field deters people from swinging at you for fear of what you'll go get. It's also fodder for skullclamp, eldritch evolution, or greater good. Cheating the enchantment into play without being able to be countered is great. I've had Mirari's Wake come down turn 2-3 because I chump blocked with a rector. That's a serious advantage.The only advantage that the tutor has over rector in my mind is the ability to grab artifacts like Planar Bridge to combo with Seedborn Muse.

I had a few walkers in the list, but for some reason my playgroup starts frothing at the mouth when they see a walker hit the board. It's a running joke now but everyone goes out of there way to kill any walker that sticks even if it's not a good play. I was running garruk caller of beast, suns champion, and ajani mentor of heroes in the beginning but they became more trouble than they were worth.

Yeh my meta is a strange place lemme tell ya. My karametra isn't the only one. My friend runs a +1/+1 counter themed deck with karametra as basically a recurring ramp card in addition to your regular green ramp. I believe I'm the only person running a generic "Goodstuff" deck at the moment. Most people here build on themes or tribes. So my excuse is I'm playin tribal "good cards" lol.

Well my playgroup isn't lacking for targeted removal. Swords, Path, Oblation, treason effects like word of seizing. Not having Karametra on a key turn can slow me down tremendously. Aegis of the Gods was in the list originally, but I swapped it for Sigarda, Heron's Grace. She pulls double duty as hexproof for me and with Odric, Lunarch Marshal she becomes pseudo Archetype of Endurance.

It's not as good as having both cards I know, but keeping it under 100 cards is tough so I have to make sacrifices for efficiency.

Sterling Grove protects Karametra in the early game and my mana doublers in the late game. It also protects the tokens Heliod makes which are the bulk of my Creatures usually. Also being able to tutor up an enchantment is super handy.

My current meta is mostly 75% decks. No one is running highly competitive decks or oppressive strategies. The worst is the occasional Aura of Silence or two. It's amazing lol.

Fortunately land destruction is very rare among our playgroup. The occasional Strip Mine is usually it. Courser of Kruphix is prolly coming out. I just picked up a Vorinclex, Sterling Grove, And Early Harvest. They're going in so now I gotta make cuts. The Temur Sabertooth saves my guys from exile and treason effects and allow me to abuse ETB abilities so he's prolly staying.

Vorinclex is in the maybe board simply because I don't own one yet. But he's on the way. I don't run Iona because there is a lot of mono color decks in my playgroup and I don't like shutting someone out of the game. It's never fun to sit there and do nothing for several turns because someone named your color. As for seer's sundial, I never thought about it. What would you cut for it?

I've tried it before and it was useful but I always ended up wanting to cast another creature before I could draw a card. The only reason I even run Worldly Tutor is the instant speed, that allows me to Tutor on my opponents end step.
