Reminds me of Sprout Swarm, but much more managable at once (twice technically) per turn cycle. Might be more managable at {2}{w}? But then the base form is pretty underpowered.

Overall I think this is a really tough mechanic to balance, because you want cards with substantial enough effects to run them, but you don't want to cost Overlearn too high so that being able to cast them once per turn late game is too much of an issue.

Agreed. It's probably not a realistic idea, because of the balance issues.
