Rite of Replication first thing to hit my mind.

Don't most playable merfolk cost BlueBlue?

Oh dear.

This card might not look like much, but he is a house in a mono-blue deck.

To those saying it shouldn't be a mythic rare, remember that blue is by far the weakest color at token-producing. Every other color has multiple options for a variety of token strategies: soldiers, goblins, elves, squirrels, zombies, etc., each with a sizeable pool of cards to choose from to support it. Meanwhile, there are only about 20 cards EVER printed that a mono-blue deck can use to produce multiple tokens:

Curse of the Swine
Meloku the Clouded Mirror
Oona, Queen of the Fae
Stolen Identity
Talrand's Invocation
Talrand, Sky Summoner
Havengul Runebinder
Undead Alchemist
Call the Skybreaker
Lullmage Mentor
Rite of Replication
Sharding Sphinx
Fable of Wolf and Owl
Spitting Ima... (see all)

I'm glad nobody has apparently noticed the obvious Simic tie-ins with this card like we all have on Facebook.

That's going to make this thing hurt so much more in UG Standard.

EDIT: Touching on something @Garruk_girl said here, there is another advantage to copying Master with, say, a Progenitor Mimic - the cloned token includes its mana cost, AKA it's natural devotion. This means you can get extra devotion each time it creates a Master token, so therefore an extra Elemental. So many Elemental and Merfolk-ish tokens to be had by like 3-5 turns that it begins to become a problem if not dealt with quickly.

With this and True-Name Nemesis, Legacy Merfolk have a few new toys to play with :3

The math of kicking said Rite on this guy is funny.

((Previous Devotion +5)*5) tokens. So for example, with only a single Master out, you get 30 more 1/0 tokens with +6/+6. Nasty.

R/U aggro with Purphoros, God of the Forge. With only two blue devotion prior to him being played, you're dealing 8 damage to the face with 4 creatures entering the battlefield that can all be buffed by Purphoros.

Any blue creature, Frostburn Weird, Nightveil Specter, this guy. Pro red is very relevant in dodging removal in standard.
