Let's make some crazily overpowered green card for Vintage?

I want to make some green cards that are strong enough to actually see play in Vintage, but not broken to a level that will surpas the power 9... and may actually be balanced in standard with careful design... 

To avoid making vastly undercosted cards, they probably need to have cmc of 3-4 and be casted in Vintage with the help of moxen...

This is what I am thinking:

De-civilization
World Enchantment
Artifacts lose all abilities.
Spells you control can't be countered by blue spells.

Overgrown Landscape
World Enchantment
Nonbasic lands and Islands are Forest.
Forests you control have ': Add to your mana pool.'

Natural Instinct
Instant
As an additional cost to cast Natural Instinct, pay 5 life.
Until end of turn, any player may play creature cards without paying their mana cost and as though they had flash.

Green already has Channel and Fastbond. And MaRo seems to think Killer Bees wrecked the game. But if we must...

Draw three cards.

Learned about it from the ancestors.

Just like he's a vampire married to an elf, innit?

Quite the contrary, he hates giving green flying or ": ~ gets +1/+1 until EOT."

Hmm, I'd go for slightly different flavour text:

Where did you think the ancestors got it from?

Choose one - Counter target spell that targets a creature or spell you control; Or, add GGG to your mana pool, use this only to cast creature spells; Or, destroy target artifact.

Not overpowered in vintage, but seems nice.

I had it at destroy, ninjaed it to exile, then ninjaed it back to destroy without taking out exile.
then ninjaed it to ninja but exile without destroy.

Given the dominance of artifact and blue spells in Vintage, an "usable" green card in Vintage must be able to hose artifact and/or blue spells to some degree, right?
oh well, or unless it is for mana acceleration...

Yeah, but green actually reveres tradition and history even more than white and black. (And it shows: Green gets the best recursion in the game.)
