I wanna discuss Nature's Prophet because although this hero was popular for a short while last year, it's completely disppeared from competitive and is unseen in pub, and I personally find this hero bad. Usually a hero has his role in teamfights (or in clashes). It could be DPS, initiator, stunner, or else. The tricky part about Nature's Prophet is that he has no fixed role in a clash. His role totally depends on his farm and other nine heroes' farm, and when his farm is behind, he has totally no role to play, he is trashed. You have to carefully consider what role to play as Nature's Prophet. A little too conservative, you are useless, a little too bold, you feed. As the hero is fast paced and should grasp every second to fly around and farm, you don't even have time to consider the question. Not to count the hero needs micro skills. And now, as other heroes are powercreeped, it's more and more hard for Nature's Prophet to get ahead. Before when he was behind, he could use Midas to comeback, but Midas is now too expensive. Icefrog has been discouraging summon pushes in recent patches, so it's difficult for treants to make a miracle, and Prophet is easily ganked on the way. I believe Nature's Prophet desperately needs a buff.
