Should mana counting be embraced?

So some quick thoughts:
-Bluffing is a big part of the game, and players who memorize the creature roster have the advantage of being able to get a rough idea of how much mana a player would have to plunk into something to pop it out (more important in law mode)

-I wonder if adding an indicator that showed the original cast % (without mana spending of course) would be a help to new players. It might allow them to familiarize with the bluffing aspect of the game. It could even be a new player option that a could be turned off in the options menu.

-Perhaps streamlining the mana counting aspect could allow players to more quickly assess their board situation and do the more tactical/strategical thinking.
