Heartbeat of Spring Discussion

Verdant Confluence is nice. i have one copy of it in another of my decks, but yeah, i might swap them around, thats a good idea, thanks. i did have some cards to pull stuff from the graveyard (Praetor's Counsel), but got rid of them for more aggressive cards because i feel like they waste a little bit of time, and i wanted to make this deck as fast as possible. i know they are useful though, so i'll reconsider.
i did have Zendikar Resurgent in there but swapped it out for a Mana Reflection that i acquired. I've actually taken it out and put it back in several times. can't decide haha. Heartbeat of Spring is interesting. i've never even seen it before, so thanks for that. will definitely consider it.

I would add Verdant Confluence and take out Nissa's Renewal. I feel like the modality would help deal with other situations, and the lifegain is not that big and incidental as it is not instant you can't use it in a pinch. It would also be good because I noticed you aren't running anything that would pull things from the graveyard if you have an answer there that has died to removal or been milled out.
Wish I knew about this Omnath sooner I definitely would like to brew a budget version of this :)

I think at any CMC, that card would be a draft bomb. Imagine empty-handed, sweeping up 3 each of Plains and Islands would be an enormous power swing: draw 3 cards, and gain 27 life.
Sweep - Return any number of Forests you control to their owner's hand. Until end of turn, whenever you tap a land for mana, add to your mana pool for each Forest returned this way.
Anyway...I don't think sweep needs to be just on instants and sorceries. Let's see a creature that has an activated ability with Sweep.

I do not know what type of budget you have but have you thought about Vorinclex, Voice of Hunger, Mana Reflection, Doubling Cube, Heartbeat of Spring, and although this one doesnt double or add extra once affected by one of the above cards can in turn make much moreMagus of the Candelabra. That being said I do not know how you want this deck to go, these are more for that ramp for bigger and more expensive cards, Hope it helped!

The Fist of Suns ability is what breaks it: just wait to play it on turn 6, tap out to annihilate the opponents with an eldrazi. That you can use its second ability to spend Hall of the Bandit Lord mana to help pay the alternative cost, so it will have haste is just icing.
I'm going to offer a redesign of this card: I know you're looking for a 5-color symmetric effect that's going to make an interesting game. What about this?
Thoboes, the Mana Flow
When Thoboes, the Mana Flow enters the battlefield, sacrifice it unless you pay .
At the beginning of each player's upkeep, that player adds to his or her mana pool. Until end of turn, this mana doesn't empty from that player's mana pool as steps and phases end.
This idea is modeled after Shizuko, Caller of Autumn and Rupture Spire. The payment drawback is supposed to make this card more fair because powerful effects shouldn't be free. I imagine on turn 5, it'd be only slightly less insane than Heartbeat of Spring hitting play, and bumping everyone from 5 to 10 mana. Then, it'll benefit all of your opponents before you, so you'd need a little bit of deckbuilding strategy to make it work, with probably an insane payoff when it does work.
The land intentionally does not have a for mana ability, effectively making it a total of 5 mana on the turn you play it, in return for 5 mana every turn for the rest of the game.
I'm assuming the current commander rule applies, that you need to pay an extra for every time it's been played from the command zone after the first.
Finally, I'm assuming if you're improving commander with house rules, we don't need to specify that it can be your commander, or that it can be played from the command zone. Just house rule that, too. This gives us much less wall of text, and actually a kind of an elegant looking card.

There are multiple budget infinite mana combos right now Nim Deathmantle + Composite Golem. But if you insist on playing ramp I would run Sakura-Tribe Elder, Primeval Titan and Heartbeat of Spring they are a little expensive but will definitely do the trick.

Ah yes, Vigor, i spaced about him giving counters, it's been a long day . I actually run it purely for defense, especially against burn. Heartbeat of Spring is a great card but I don't want to use it, since it benefits all players and being mono green I need to take every advantage I can with mana generation without giving it to my opponents. And I love Khalni Hydra because of the devotion it gives, I just don't know what i would take out and finding a foil one has proven to be tough. Lol. Thanks again for all the great input.
