Merfolk tribal is quite serious at this point. Even on its own its quite impressive!

Crazy card advantage. A good blocker for a few turns that can swing if it needs to, and a free card.

I see this as a 4-of in many Standard decks. A body which most likely will replace itself with a counterspell? What's not to love?

Card advantage, 3 toughness for 2 CMC, and it's a Merfolk Wizard, too - another delicious treat for blue. Thanks for making it an uncommon. :)

The 1/3 body is very relevant for the current Standard. Augur is hard to deal with for any aggro and aggro-to-midrange deck, as it stops a lot of the most common early threats without dying:

Ash Zealot
Elite Inquisitor
Diregraf Ghoul
Goblin Electromancer
Mentor of the Meek
Precinct Captain
Rakdos Cackler

... and even kills a lot of them without dying:
Lightning Mauler
Nearheath Pilgrim
Rakdos Shred-Freak
Snapcaster Mage
Thalia, Guardian of Thraben

.. and it doesn't die from:
Pillar of Flame
Izzet Charm

... and it loves to be bounced.

So for your two ... (see all)

Wow, this card's just great in a non-creature-heavy deck. It doesn't necessarily have to be a control deck, but yeah, a deck that even just has a little more spells than creatures would benefit from this greatly.
It's like a blue top library manipulation card attached to a creature without being too expensive!

Nice, nice. Won't see play in modern combo (because Peer Through Depths is and instant and does it better), but might see a fair amount of play elsewhere.

stop comparing this to snapcaster. and no snapy is not compleetly beter, would u play snapy on turn two?

He's also a good 4-of with Talrand.

It's always saddening when you play him on T2 and have to put one of your Talrands on the bottom of the deck, though...

@ BABUrrito: You may reveal an instant or sorcery and put it in your hand, or reveal nothing and put all 3 cards on the bottom. Whenever an effect puts a card with certain characteristics into your hand, you must reveal it to your opponent. This is to make sure no one cheats by using Augur of Bolas or Mystical Tutor, for example, to find a card other than an instant or sorcery.
