Sorcery
Reproduction can only target a permanent that produced mana spent to cast it.
You may put a token into play that's a copy of target permanent.
Cloud Key naming Sorcery, Gilded Lotus, get me nine mana from three cards...hmmm...well, at least it doesn't cantrip.

Khans of Tarkir Clan Quiz
After three iterations of taking the quiz, it says each time that I'm Temur, the clan. Which is funny because the dual-color tests still yield the same two results as before.

I am both selfish and instinctive. I value growth and community, as long as they favour my own objectives; I enjoy nature, and I particularly enjoy watching parts of nature die. At best, I am resilient and tenacious; at worst, I'm uncontrollable and destructive.

Oh, but wait, there were multiple answers that fit my thoughts to some questions. What colors did they say I was?

I am Blue/Green

I am both rational and instinctive. I value self-knowledge and understanding of the world; my ultimate goal is self-improvement and improvement of the world around me. At best, I am focused and methodical; at worst, I am obsessive and amoral.

That would happen later in the game, I'm a lot more afraid of what might happen on your turn #01 or turn #02!
Bloom Tender shenanigans? I don't know. I like the effect, I'm just not sure about the cost. Cause I can't think of every card that produces mana and if any of them can create a situation of sheer brokeness (brokenness?).

Weird.
On the stick maybe?
The greatest problem is probably copying a Cloudpost on your second turn!
Non-land permanent, and you're set.
The only thing I can think of is:

Turn 1:
Play Forest , tap for , play Mana Vault

Turn 2:
Play Forest, tap both Forests for , tap Mana Vault for , cast Reproduction copying Mana Vault, tap 2nd Mana Vault totaling in your mana pool

I have no idea what could really buy you on turn 2 that would be any scarier then anything else Legacy or Vintage has to offer on turn 2... Quagnoth?  Maybe a Caged Sun for massive mana ramp since you can spend 2 turns untapping your Mana Vaults and if you drop 2 more Forests, have a total of on turn 5?  Eternity Vessel to reset life to 20 every time you play a land?  Maybe an Omen Machine to force your opponent to abandon strategy and have to play everything he "draws"?  Staff of Nin would be kinda cool for early card advantage... Urza's Armor seems silly, but it'd hold off the damage from Mana Vault for a while, give you time to build up while thwarting their 1/1's.  Ward of Bones for control, or Wurmcoil Engine for some aggro?  I have no idea anymore.  Just throwing out random stuff.

So, everything that's overpowered with the card is overpowered even without the card?

Not really, the point was more that seeing that on turn 2 might be over the top, you know, like a  Goblin Charbelcher style deck....

I'm talking about Mana Vault + Isochron Scepter + Cloudpost!
This card doesn't interact with Isochron Scepter at all, those copies weren't payed for.

In general though, I think that Rampant Growth is a nice, fairly costed card, why are you upping the power to 11?

Congratulations, they have activated your trap card!
Rampant Growth provides deck-thinning and mana-fixing, you search for lands that you don't already have..

One card Deck thinned away doesn't even register on the powerlevel scale.

Rampant Growth being fixing is valid, but this card lets is cone into play untapped, so really this is pretty much a strictly better Nature's Lore

Mana Severance -- Even on a massive scale, WotC didn't seem to think deck thinning by removing lands was all that high in mana cost.

That's a good point, let's have the copy enter play tapped!
