Karametra, God of Harvests
Legendary Enchantment Creature — God
As long as your devotion to green and white is less than seven, Karametra isn't a creature.
Whenever you cast a creature spell, you may search your library for a Forest or Plains card, put it onto the battlefield tapped, then shuffle your library.

Karametra, God of Harvests Discussion
2 weeks ago
I once ran a Karametra, God of Harvests tokenmaster deck that ran a gambit of every single method of gaining life whenever a creature ETB, on top of the hardest hitting ETB token makers, on top of blink / flicker effects.
Going wide doesn't even begin to describe the far-reaching nature of that monstrosity. I wasn't encroaching on other players playmats; I damn-near needed a whole table just for myself!
When you are up 180+ life above your starting total and all three opponents full-swing and you brunt the full force of their blows and then make 144 life on your next turn, you can see how the rest goes.
I actually LOST the game because I was having so much fun going wide that I never even attacked. A single Cyclonic Rift ended me as I couldn't repopulate fast enough on the multitudes of crackbacks.
But the table knew I could have won at any point I wished. I was just having far too much fun to do so. Hence my username. XD

Recently built a Karametra, God of Harvests , man I can say, that it is crazy rampy and easy to built around with. Add super cheap creatures and super big smashers and you'll be good to go (ofc with some removal)
My own first deck is my Phenax deck, so in a way, the 'perfect' EDH deck varies from different people. But if you want to start em off with something cheap, go for pauper EDH? The power level should be balanced and it isn't costly.
Commander legend's uncommon partners as commanders are cool too. Pair Malcolm, Keen-Eyed Navigator and some other color and you'll generally already have good ramp.
If that doesn't work, go mono color (I recommend U or G) since both can deal with card draw/ramp better. As a beginner theu probably just wanna win by swinging big bois and not do crazy combos that has tons of interactions.
If lazy, just go pick a commander deck precon, can't go wrong with those and they have great value.

I piloted a Karametra, God of Harvests deck for a couple years, which that list can be found here: [EDH][PRIMER] Karametra's Garden of Eden. However, keep note if you end up reading that deck I purposefully did NOT build her as an enchantress commander, and instead a storm-esque combo commander abusing her land-fetch ability. That deck in general though is outdated and I would definitely change it if I wanted to play it again.
Anyways, for your questions:
1) I will admit, I did make this list kind of complicated, or rather it has a lot of niche interactions, and I think a newer player would have trouble getting the full value of this particular list. However, I think in general Sythis, Harvest's Hand is indeed a rather simple commander; you play enchantments and draw cards. I think most of the difficulty in this list - and most lists to be fair - is decision making. When do I play this card? Do I respond to this particular threat now or later? How can I possibly win the game this turn? Etc. As I said previously, ultimately Sythis - and pretty much all enchantment-based decks - want to establish an engine with a creature that allows you to draw cards per each enchantment cast and then play a bunch of cheap enchantments, such as Utopia Sprawl to draw your deck and win the game via card advantage.
2) My main playstyle in commander is typically incorporating the commander into the strategy. For enchantress-based decks, I think undoubtedly Sythis, Harvest's Hand is the best commander because she does exactly that - she herself IS an enchantress. I will also say, this deck does have more of a stax-theme, meaning denying your opponents resources. After playing combo for ~5 years, this is something I've found myself rather enjoying as a break from combo, (my Karametra deck for example is one of the combo decks I played for a while). I find the deck fun to play due to the ability to easily incorporate the commander into the deck's strategy and having a playstyle that I find fun to play.
3) While I do think the deck is rather competitive, I do not think it is cEDH level, and if it is, it would be fringe at best. I do think the deck is stronger than the average EDH deck though. If I had to place it on a scale, where 1 is a pre-con and 10 is something like Oracle Consultation or Flash Hulk - I would probably place it at a 6 or 7. It definitely is beatable, but can preform fairly consistently.
Hopefully these answered your questions. If you have any others, feel free to message me and I'll try to answer to the best of my abilities!

Kurao, God of the Peaks
Legendary Snow Enchantment Creature - God
As long as your devotion to green and blue is less than four, ~ isn't a creature.
Whenever a player casts a snow spell, you may tap or untap target permanent. If it is a snow permanent, you may add a or to your mana pool.
"With a personality as cold and biting as the mountain peaks, followers must show their devotion though arduous trials, including sequestering themselves in huts made of chiseled ice and frost. Only then, do successful devotees see a warmer side of the deity, and the radiant growth he fosters."
You'll notice that this Snow-God is quite weaker than his more temperate (and sometimes not as temperate) deities on the Theros Pantheon.
The way I see it - and hear me out a little - Theros doesn't necceasirily have "Season" Deities; We have Karametra, God of Harvests , but maybe these can be minor deities?
So, we have obv Winter, so what about the other seasons? Obv centered in Nature, , I'm thinking:
Therefore, for the next challenge, make one of these remaining Season gods!

enpc - . A better example for me would have been Karametra against Sythis or Jodah against Golos . I build around a lot of old commanders that do not really have direct replacements, but these were just predicaments of consideration. I would take the statement of the 99 more to heart than the commander.

Say it's outside of my main phase
I have priority and there is nothing else on the stack
I cast Whitemane lion and it resolves during a end step,, or combat phase,, or etc
Can I cast Whitemane lion again right after it resolves and returns to my hand or can I only cast it once each time there is something to respond too? For example again at the end of a turn.

I know it's not a full deck recommendation, but I'd look at an aggro Karametra, God of Harvests . She can be built with pretty much any selection of creatures, themed or otherwise, and every creature spell cast becomes a ramp spell. As a god, she's rather difficult to remove, and G/W offer a nice variety of support spells from indestructible to lifelink to trample and more, as well as some draw. Plus she can easily be upgraded with better creatures and support over time. Hope this helps.
