Without the word collectively, which might refer to either the two methods or your (single) proposal, so either a singular or plural verb would be possible.

But your (single) proposal cannot operate collectively. Consequently, the subject of enable must be the two methods, and must take the form proper to a plural subject:

We propose method A and method B, which collectively enable smart exploration ...


Note, by the way, that "search space" almost certainly refers to a specific search space rather than some universal search space, so it needs an article: "a" if you mean any search space to which the methods might be applied, "the" if you are speaking of a search space you have previously identified.
