I honestly think they needed to add another stealth based character to the roster.  I know that the stealthies get a lot of hate, especially Nova, but they are a valid play style and can make or break a match.  Looking forward to seeing Samuro.

Predicting a mirror image nerf. That has such crazy lane push potential for an assassin. With any minion support it's essentially "increase all siege damage by 60% for 18 seconds". Same reason they removed and damage from Nova's decoy.
Curious to see how the talents work, I can see a really good crit hit build in the works.

HoTS actually deals with Stealth incredibly well, so I find myself really in favour of this. Dealing with crap like Shaco in LoL, where there is no indicator of his position in stealth is a pain in the ass (you can see smoke when he enters it, but when he's in it you're screwed). With enough awareness, you can completely lockdown stealthers.
