If you tap a permanent for mana, it produces three times as much of that mana instead.

I do have 2 brazen borrowers and the shatk typhoon set aside, just need to figure out what I'm getting.

WotC has printed creature versions of three of the five reflections from Shadowmoor; Rhox Faithmender is a creature version of Boon Reflection, Archfiend of Despair is a creature version of Wound Reflection, and Nyxbloom Ancient is a creature version of Mana Reflection, which means that WotC has not yet printed creature versions of Rage Reflection or Thought Reflection.
Naturally, I would like to see creature versions of those enchantments, since creatures generally are far more useful than are enchantments; I have Rage Reflection in several of my decks, and those decks would greatly appreciate having that effect on a creature.

Cool, glad that I could help. :) Wow, I would like to test the list right now! The deck ramps so fast and it has so many possibilities to generate infinite mana (please put sword of Paruns back in).
Therefore you have to play Walking Ballista, because it's an important alternative wincon. outside of the combat step or they can be used as boardwipe / removal / pingengine. And since you added Cloudstone Curio, I can highly recommend Llanowar Visionary instead of Wood Elves, as you have ramp + draw in one card. It's good that you added Yisan, he's a fantastic toolbox, but to get the most out of him you'll need to form a cmc chain and unfortunately you're not currently playing cards with Yisan from a 4-CMC creature like Temur Sabertooth Regal Force (into >> Craterhoof Behemoth). Therefore, you should add at least 1-2x 5CMC and 6CMC cards each. Personally, I always found Somberwald Stag strong in my Yisan deck, because he's a Removal on a Stick which can be tutored (with Curio and Sabertooth, the whole thing can be worn out even more) or, as already mentioned, Ohran Frostfang...
I would use one of these combinations: Somberwald Stag + Woodland Bellower Or Ohran Frostfang + Kogla, the Titan Ape
So your tutor chain is complete, so you can easily turn an Elvish Mystic into a Craterhoof with Yisan (/ Pod)
Do you have Copperhorn Scout in the deck for an important reason? If not, I would cut him.
I'll probably make myself unpopular with the next suggestion, but I'd cut the Nyxbloom Ancient for Sword of the Paruns . I personally love Nyxbloom as a card (but in my Kruphix deck), but in this deck he isn't a combopiece and because of that he's a classic win-more card, because if you reach 7+ mana you should normally win in your next turns at worst. The ancient adds 3x mana, that's a lot but also often annoying for your opponents to see you calculating and infinite mana (with the sword) is just always better than 3x mana.
I would cut Autumn's Veil for Birthing Pod. Because Autumn's Veil isn't by far as good as his big brother. Autumn doesn't draw you a card, doesn't protect vs. Boardwipes or against non blue/black removal. In addition, you now have the new Allosaurus against counterspells in your deck, so I would rather play the Birthing Pod to provide redundancy together with Yisan and so that you can look for the right creatures.

Of the four, I've had Omnath, Locus of Rage the longest. I initially swapped back and forth with Xenagos, God of Revels a few times, and I felt Omnath won more games. Plus it spooks away and can win off of board wipes.
Omnath, Locus of Mana because I'd built so many G/x decks that I had a lot of overflow. Going with Snow-Covered Forests and Extraplanar Lens leveled it up, among other things. They're always printing green bombs (cough cough Nyxbloom Ancient)
Omnath, Locus of the Roil steps on the Gruul version's toes. They often feel like the same deck imho. This guy might even do it better. Adding blue and the straight value from the commander + lands likely makes this the most competitive when built right.
I took apart temur omnath to build Omnath, Locus of Creation and can't wait for it to release n play some games. I think this will be more of a high risk/reward deck due to four colors.
Someday I'll rebuild roil, but for now I'll rock , , and

If I have a Nyxbloom Ancient in play and Kinnan, Bonder Prodigy, and I tap a mana dork. Since Kinnan creates the additional mana, but does not tap to do so, would Nyxbloom Ancient triple the additional mana created by Kinnan?

Wow! You put some work into those suggestions!! Excellent! Here are the nonland cards that leapt off of the screen and right into my heart...and then the deck list:
Two other spells will be included, as suggested by MTG Burgeoning YouTube subscriber Me Geal:
I prefer Garruk's Uprising over Nylea, God of the Hunt. Both spells provide trample to our creatures, but Garruk's Uprising is more favorable due to its card-draw ability. Nearly all of our creatures will have power four or greater, and as a bonus, Garruk's Uprising is triggered by creature tokens as well. Each time Zaxara, the Exemplary creates a hydra creature token with power four or greater, we will draw a card if Garruk's Uprising is under our control. Drawing cards is more beneficial to us than Nylea, God of the Hunt's ability to give target creature +2 +2 until end of turn.
So this brings our total to 13 cards. Let's continue:
Sacrificing a creature as an additional cost to cast Diabolic Intent should not be a burden in our deck, and we can put the card directly into our hand as opposed to on top of our library. Additionally, we can seek out any card in our library and not just a creature card and keep it a secret from our opponents by not being forced to reveal it. Diabolic Intent is, for all intents and purposes, Demonic Tutor #2.
By doing so, we dodge artifact removal, mass permanent removal and an overloaded Cyclonic Rift. The spells have equal converted mana cost and yield the same total amount of mana (if we include the land needed to activate Simic Signet to the basic land fetched-out by Rampant Growth).
The volume of cards and synergy among our +1 +1 counter spells are already strong in our deck. I sense that our ramp needs strengthening and with few deck slots remaining, necessity may outweigh desire. Thought Vessel helps us ramp and gives us no maximum hand size. We should be drawing a lot of cards, and we prefer keeping them in our hand over discarding down to seven.
I am unsure about Seedborn Muse. Currently we have eight instant spells officially in our deck list (including Cyclonic Rift and Assassin's Trophy) and without a flash theme and/or enabler, I wonder if the card slot dedicated to Seedborn Muse can be filled with a card more dedicated and/or focused to our theme. Bloom Tender ramps us and can help us cast bigger spells and seems like it's a better fit to the concentration of our deck.
I am stubborn when it comes to auras. The threat of a 2-for-1 looms large whenever an aura is cast. Additionally, with respect to Hydra's Growth, we don't reap the major benefits of this spell until the beginning of our upkeep. This allows each opponent an opportunity to remove it with instant-speed and sorcery-speed spells before we can double the +1 +1 counters on our creature. For the sake of comparison, when we cast Pemmin's Aura targeting Zaxara, the Exemplary, the threat of a 2-for-1 exists at instant-speed only. If left unchecked, the payoff is enormous and most likely game-winning. I don't sense the same level of power from Hydra's Growth. Strionic Resonator interacts favorably with multiple spells in our deck and presents greater versatility than Hydra's Growth. As Hydra's Growth enchants one creature, Strionic Resonator synergizes powerfully with numerous cards in our deck.
Open Into Wonder is in our deck already and provides our creatures unblockability (owning it!) for a turn, and Herald of Secret Streams makes creatures we control with +1 +1 counters on them unblockable. This type of redundancy is favorable. However, if this is the last creature we're planning to add to our deck, I think perhaps we go in a different direction and add a previously suggested creature, like Kalonian Hydra. How about exchanging one potential win condition for another?
I do not have available copies of Nyxbloom Ancient or Mana Crypt. When copies become available they will be added to our deck. We'll find a way to make it work! These are powerful spells and would serve us well.
So that's 19 spells added to our deck list! Awesome!! There are, at most, five more spells we can include.
As for our lands, after we solidify and complete our list of spells, we'll check back and construct the land base.
Great suggestions! Thank you again and keep 'em comin;!!
