Heartbeat of Spring Discussion

Here I am from reddit with my critique:
- You need more mana doublers Mana Reflection/Mana Flare/Heartbeat of Spring/Regal Behemoth
- You need more tutors Sidisi, Undead Vizier/Demonic Tutor/Vampiric Tutor
- Add Squandered Resources in case you dont have Dwarven Ruins also allows combo with Nykthos and 5 devotion
- Add Dark Depths + Thespian's Stage combo
- replace mana dorks with land based ramp Wayward Swordtooth/Wood Elves
- Add Woodland Bellower to tutor Eternal Witness/Lotus Cobra/Tireless Tracker/Wayward Swordtooth/Ramunap Excavator also add in Reclamation Sage to add artifact removal to that list

I don't like Faith's Reward. Teferi's Protection accomplishes the same thing for 1 mana less and can double as a fog in a pinch. If a sweeper catches you with your mana down, you're better off with Replenish or it's budget replacement Open the Vaults
Don't run Ever-Watching Threshold along side Propaganda, Ghostly Prison and Sphere of Safety. Sticking one of those is already enough to disincentivize everyone else from attacking you. You're just not going to trigger the card draw often enough, AND it's only 1 card per combat step. I might be on board if it was per creature. It's also unneed, we're up to 7 enchantress effects with one in the command zone if you want it. Drawing cards isn't going to be a problem.
I'm not really a fan of Genesis Wave outside of green decks that ramp crazy fast and cast it to put half their deck on the field. We want more tutor effects to get out our enchantresses and start snowballing. Eladamri's Call and Green Sun's Zenith both deserve spots. Commune with the Gods is pretty good too.
If you see any amount of Mizzix of the Izmagnus, Meren of Clan Nel Toth, Atraxa, Praetors' Voice or Infect decks in your meta, then you're nuts for not running Solemnity. Kind of odd to see Phyrexian Unlife in a deck without tbh. You'd be better off with Worship or even Island Sanctuary than running unlife by itself since it only buys you 10 points of life.
If you opt to not play Solemnity, you should run Parallax Wave. Parallax Wave + Opalescence or Starfield of Nyx means everyone else is done playing creatures, since you can just exile them all. For those that don't know how this works, it's basically the same as sacrificing Oblivion Ring in response to the first trigger. 1) with both parallax wave and opalescence out, exile an opponents creature. 2) HOLD priority and exile parallax wave to itself (opalescence turns it into a creature). 3) allow the stack to resolve. Parallax wave's second ability will remain in effect as it leaves the battlefield and immediately return it. The returning parallax wave is recognized as different wave than the one that just left play. 4) Allow the trigger exiling your opponents creature to resolve and it's gone for good. 5) repeat. You can also abuse this for infinite ETB triggers on your own creatures if you want.
You don't have any real ramp in your list as it is. Exploration and Burgeoning will let you play extra lands, but you still need to drawn them. Karametra only works when you cast a creature and you only run 14. Heartbeat of Spring helps your opponents as well as yourself. Zendikar Resurgent is expensive as shit and Mirari's Wake will rarely make around the table. The green enchant land cards will actually ramp you, and are quite good. They're a bit better in an Estrid list, but they worked very well for me in my G/W build. Abundant Growth (tho it's only fixing, not ramp), Fertile Ground, Overgrowth, Utopia Sprawl and Wild Growth are all worth slots. The other 3&4 CMCs aren't as great, with Weirding Wood being the best.

Someone at my lgs has a chaos deck that runs these cards, headed by Maelstrom Wanderer. Some notable includes are most of the cheap mana doublers, such as Heartbeat of Spring and Overabundance, Jokulhaups and Obliterate, Warp World, Psychic Battle, Uba Mask, and Timesifter.

My favorite combo is an extended one. A friend had a Heartbeat Desire - a ramp-control deck that comboed off with Heartbeat of Spring, Early Harvest and a large storm count Mind's Desire. Plus, it has the best poetic deckname.
As others have noted, a format that is not curated by the DCI is doomed to fail.
Brawl in MTGO is 95% Baral decks. Pauper has exploded in popularity, but blue is overrepresented and monarch mechanic is proving too powerful in the format. Not a peep so far on that by Wizards and we have months to the next B&R.
A similar thing had happened to extended, but Extended 2.0 can learn from those mistakes. I think a trial for extended is in order.
