I can't really think of a great way to abuse this other than Seedborn Muse.

This is very good. People underrated it (I assume) because snow-covered lands aren't played anymore.

Can't argue with a turn 4 Godsire I suppose.

Zuty's Random Card of the Day #1:

Winter's Night is a weaker version of Heartbeat of Spring. Heartbeat does pretty much the exact same thing, but with any lands, any easier casting cost, and it doesn't keep the lands tapped.

Winter's Night DOES have one saving grace that makes it better than Heartbeat; it keeps your opponent tapped out when they tap snow lands. Since neither the Winter's Night and Heartbeat contain the word 'may', every player tapping land must add the mana and, in Winter's Night's case, must keep them tapped.

With this in mind a deck could be made around Winter's Night. Use cards like Arcum's Weathervane and Rimefeather Owl to make lands snow and Seedborn Muse, Rude Awakening, and Bear Umbra to keep your lands always up. You'll be able to benefit from the doubled mana while your opponent will still get double mana, but be drained next turn.
... (see all)

@kibberny Snow-Covered is a land type. They were only printed in Ice Age and Coldsnap.

Request clarification of the term 'snow-covered land'. Does this mean that the artwork has to be examined for any signs of snow on the mountains? Some of them are clearly snow-covered, but other ones just have hints of white that may be snow or may be clouds. How is this judged?

Double your mana for 1 turn, basicly.

This is perfect in decks where you desperately need mana ramp without handing your opponent anything. (Heartbeat of Spring says, "if your opponent is playing combo, you lose the game.")

Since your opponent probably won't be playing snow lands, you can rely on this being a one-sided effect. My advise is, don't try to hard to get around the untap restriction. That can leave you with a hand full of junk that untaps your lands without doing anything, or a battlefield with two Seedborn Muse and nothing to do with all that mana.

Instead, design the deck around the fact that you'll only have mana every other turn. I've enjoyed using it alongside Life from the Loam. Leave one Snow-Covered Forest untapped during my 'mana turns,' then dredge and play Loam during my 'no mana turns.' The deck can almost race 12 Post, except for needing to find this enchantment.
