Reason behind this is for extra control against other aggro decks, being able to use Bioshift in a pinch when either being blocked or blocking turning either their threat into nothing or my weak creature into a big threat. So many uses for it, being able to save a creature that has counters and is about to die to prevent a loss of counters etc. The manipulator will be perfect against both control and aggro, with control decks it will be relatively easy to take utility creatures, and will allow for a quick start against aggro by stealing their early creatures leaving their field more exposed.
