Seemed to me he was going Pusher strat. Personally, I would have done Mael too.
Morph's team didn't have problems surviving (in fact they were killing like nuts), they had problems pushing. The way he was using Replicate and Manta, I'm sure he was difficult enough to kill. Throw in Butterfly and a wave, I'd be pretty confident of my survivability if I were him.
So in this case I would have gone Mael for pushing, and upgrade with Eaglehorn for more agi if I get the money.
Hmmm, I disagree. Their problem was that PS did a ton of damage (I love you, Slardar) and, even when PS lost a fight or decided to suicide, they had the money to buy back and keep the pressure on.
A morph with that many images and that much dps isn't going to get too much pushing power out of a maelstrom anyway, IMO. Their only hope, as I see it from my armchair, was to kill the other team and counter push or BD (good luck, I know). Heart helps you do that and gives you the ability to go directly to pushing (rather than go back to the fountain).
Another thought: there's no such thing as "survivable enough" unless it's detracting from your other stats. With morph, going heart gives regen and you can channel your extra str into agi (plus when you channel your agi to str, you get a double whammy of extra regen). Other than the evasion, I prefer heart over bfly on late-game morph for these reasons. I was actually thinking he should have gone heart after buying the talisman.
Actually, in a bd war, heart's probably the best thing you can have as you can keep the other team completely on the defensive (bd, leave, heal, bd, etc...).
Eh, I could be wrong.
