if there was a white or red creature that did this, you guys would think it's great for non-ramp-color ramping. but seriously, how many ramps does blue have? high tide? SEA SCRYER? she opens your mana for 1u counterspells and utilities, which is the biggest slowdown of permission decks. and in a merfolk tribal, she can get beatdown buffs for killing after the need for extra mana is gone. and i can think of a nasty Intruder Alarm - Shrieking Drake infinite that's killed me several times. shame on all of you!

I'd play it.
others would spend a lot of money on dual and fetchlands so they could play Birds in an otherwise blue deck without any effort >.>

I figured this card would be rated higher, just because of how rare mana acceleration is in blue. Kind of a strange, nerfed blue version of Skyshroud Elf. Not great, but not terrible. I'm still willing to shell out the one extra mana for Mana Prism for any situation where this would be useful, and unless you NEED that extra creature and are playing straight Mirage just use Prismatic Lens.

Sea Scryer, scrying all the seas
Protecting all the merfolk from the looters and the thieves
Sea Scryer, scrying all the land
He adds a bit of mana but does nothing to your hand

He's not an elf but he doesn't need to be
He's a decent mana producer from the deep blue sea!

Sea Scryer, scrying's what he does
The only reason he does it is... just because.

Neather of her abilities have anything to do with scrying.

@InsertNameHere: Bravo! An excellent summation of why this card is mediocre, and I really mean that. Do you do requests my good fellow? Id rather like to hear the Ballad of Dream Cache...

Artifact acceleration like Silver Myr is better.

Well look, Deranged Assistant was a very nice enabler. This loses the milling and gains fixing. Run both for blue ramp times!

Don't forget Apprentice Wizard!
But honestly, Axelle has it right: Artifacts have better mana abilities than any blue counterpart.
