Yeah, i get the Wu Spy value! I still prefer my Thought-Knot Seer though, but our decks are different. I run a lot of mana rocks that I can blink with Brago for almost double the mana each turn, so is sometimes easier than for Brago himself! ahah I don't rely just on Reliquary Tower type of lands, so it does a great job.
Giving a card to an opponent has never been an issue to me. I'm not in any way a group hug player, but usually I make deals when I blink it. "okay, who's in a worse spot right now? You? Okay, I'll give you a card, but you won't come after me, other wise this shall rain upon you" kind of stuff ahah. The thing if you're giving the weaker player a card or two, he really needs it. If he turns on you (unless he kills the eldrazi) next turn you can rip value off his hand, so rarely someone turns on you like that. Even if they manage to kill Thought-Knot Seer, if you're picking the player falling behind you should have a better board position anyway, and you can make a whole lot to him if he turns on you. Also, I kinda need to have it, since it's another win con for the Strionic Resonator combo that I run, while Wu Spy doesn't allow mill wins by himself, just disrupts top decks. Since you're not running the combo, Wu Spy will probably be a better option most of the time. Anyway hand disruption in isn't that common so I like the versatility of Thought-Knot Seer (and if I have Panharmonicon out then it's just pure value).

Thanks for your input GS10!
Panharmonicon is a definite buy/Puca Trade in the near future! Will do insane work in this deck. Thought-Knot Seer on the other hand is a different thing. Hitting that can be tricky, i'd give opponents cards when i blink him and the card's cost is blown out of proportion because of 60 card modes. But, i do have an option in mind that could fit in really great to do the above: Wu Spy! Pretty low on the curve top deck manipulation of enemy decks without a downside will be loads of fun - and unusual and fresh as well. ;) Plus, it screws up Sensei's Divining Top users real bad if blinked/played at the right time.
I'll take a look at your decks when i find the time. Stay tuned in for future updates. :)
