Sure, Multicast on Fireblast is a HUGE bonus. But imo, Ogre is just more than simply Fireblast spam, and with old Agha you were totally realiant on those Multicasts only. Moreover, Agha gave you no mana regen at all, making you a huge sitting duck when you ran oom.
Now that Scepter is gone, this is no longer relevant anyway, but i still think that Guinsoo was better than Agha as a luxury item on Ogre, for those reasons:
In 1v1 situations: there was a mathcraft post some time ago that showed how you had more dps and multicast % with guinsoo than with agha in a 1v1 situation.
Agha: 1 fireblast w/o fear of retaliation with increased %
Guinsoo: 2 fireblast w/o fear of retaliation with less % (fire+sheep+fire)
It turned out 2 fireblast with less % were more damaging than 1 fireblast with higher % on a medium basis.
In 5v5 situations: 2 disables are better than 1 in teamfigth.
