Hey RebelGenius, Collector Ouphe seems sweet, I'll definitely test it out. Wall of Omens and Wall of Blossoms were both considered for the deck but just seem like worse versions of Wall of Roots for this build. However, you could definitely go the Yorion, Sky Nomad route with this deck where the walls would be staples. Thanks!

I used to run a Karametra, God of Harvests combo deck ages ago when Paradox Engine was legal. I updated it last summer, but it's still kind of mediocre and I would definitely redo it again if I had any interest in the deck. Regardless, if you're interested - my decklist is here:

Cards like Whitemane Lion, Kor Skyfisher, and Emancipation Angel are absolutely phenomenal in Karametra. They bounce themselves, allowing you to play them again and get more lands. With Aluren out, you can get every single Forest/Plains out of your deck in a single turn.
Cards like Wall of Blossoms and Wall of Omens are great with Aluren + Cloudstone Curio because you could essentially draw your entire deck in one go. Albeit you'd need to be careful and specify how far you should go with this otherwise you'd deck yourself, but that's beyond the point - still a powerful draw effect.
With Aluren, Cards like Sandsteppe Outcast and Hanged Executioner are awesome for getting an arbitrarily large number of tokens, as the token on the ETB effect can bounce the creature that generated it with Cloudstone Curio. This can pay out in several different ways - mainly infinite mana with Ashnod's Altar and/or Phyrexian Altar through sacing the token, and infinite damage/winning the game on the spot with Blasting Station and sacing the token. You could also create infinite tokens with Oketra's Monument and any of the self-bounce creatures if you just have Aluren out.
Personally, if you wanted to play a straight-up ETB combo deck, I think Trostani, Selesnya's Voice is a better general due to having far easier access to using Aetherflux Reservoir, (generate a ton of life with Aluren + Whitemane Lion, shoot people with the Death Star). Karametra, God of Harvests is nice for land filtering, but you only run so many lands in the deck she becomes kind of useless later on in the game - hence why I've kind of lost interest in her. In addition, what TypicalTimmy said is very true - if you rush out to an early lead in lands with her, you often become a target. IF you wanted to build Karametra, God of Harvests still, I would highly recommend going combo and including a myriad of methods to win - such as combat damage, Walking Ballista combos, and Blasting Station combos.

Walls that replace themselves like Wall of Blossoms and Wall of Omens. Walls that have a good rate Wall of Denial. Walls/defenders that produce positive mana like Axebane Guardian and Overgrown Battlement - these combo with things like Freed from the Real if you have a filter and you can become a wall ball deck. Lastly, cards like Rolling Stones and Assault Formation because you don't want to just lean on your commander for everything.

I always did wonder how to build a deck around getting the 4+ cycles on Yidaro... this looks like a pretty good way to go about it, though!
A couple thoughts come to mind when looking at your build, though. Shefet Monitor being able to put a land right into play is lovely, but paying four mana for the privilege is awfully steep... I can't help but wonder if he (and Beneath the Sands?) wouldn't be better off as Krosan Tusker! Three mana to draw two cards is arguably as good and not quite as slow.
The other thing I'm left wondering about is your early-game survivability. Dedicating several turns to cycling a card creates one heck of an opening, and I'm skeptical that you have enough defenses to throw off a dedicated foe! For instance, Drannith Healer could serve as a better deterrent than the Stinger - since it can only nail your opponent directly, how often will it deal enough damage to make a difference when you're planning to end up swinging with an 8/8 trampler? Maybe you've had some good results with it, but just from looking at the list I was curious!
Another route you could take things is to lean more heavily on Astral Drift. If you run a handful of creatures with helpful comes-into-play abilities, such as Lone Missionary, Wall of Blossoms or perhaps best of all, Stonehorn Dignitary, then you can easily bolster your position every time you cycle!

I think the success of turbofog mostly hinges on your win condition.... my best attempt with turbofog was Bant blink using Stonehorn Dignitary with Venser, the Sojourner and Eternal Witness and Time Warp with various blink tech cards.... Coiling Oracle is great for drawing and ramp... Wall of Omens/Wall of Blossoms also help..... Glittering Wish is also amazing in this shell.

Thanks for posting, amicdeep. I think I’ll pass on Wall of Blossoms, but I’m impressed with Timeless Witness. I haven’t seen that card before you suggested it, and I could see some great value from its ETB. I’ll add it to the Maybeboard for now, as I’m currently working on a few decks in the background and aren’t ready to return to this one just yet.

Have you considered Wall of Blossoms in the deck? It adds a way to dig for thagtusk while working with you ramp and flicker plan.
Another high value creature in the same vain of thagtusk is Timeless Witness it can make ephemerate a loop getting bit back every turn
