I mainly play Competitive EDH, and my weapons of choice are Momir Hackball and Gitrog Dredge. Show me your green commander-reliant decks!

For perspective, at the point that we'd need Heart Warden, we already are able to get rid of any threats on the board like Aven Mindcensor or Spirit of the Labyrinth.

That said, I've been thinking hard about Spellseeker, but I don't think I will end up playing it in this list, mainly due to its expensive mana cost. Compared to Merchant Scroll, it's 4 vs 3 mana to find a hack. While this might not sound significant, this is a pretty important number, as the turn after we play Momir Vig, Simic Visionary we typically have about 5, sometimes 6 mana. A 3 mana hack can be cast, along with a 1cmc green creature, and finally Quirion Ranger, and fully start off a chain. However, Spellseeker costs 1 more and wouldn't be able to be used for this purpose.

There's also the idea that Heart Warden is more useful outside of combo turn than it seems. We need a certain density of 2 mana ramp, and if it wasn't Heart Warden it might end up being something like Voyaging Satyr.

This is sort of out of character for me, but for once, I think that freeing slots might not be favorable, since it will decrease the quality of the slot that is left. However, I'd certainly encourage people to explore and test this out even more, since Spellseeker has a lot of interesting facets which I've most likely missed. As it stands, I like the "more, but more useful" setup we have with our combo slots, as opposed to "fewer, but less useful". Thanks for your really thought-out comment, though! I haven't thought about it from the perspective of replacing Merchant Scroll before.
