It would be nice to have Blue/Red/Baron indicators on the side, on the outer edge opposite to ultimates and Summoner spells

For Oracle Elixir, maybe add a pink border or tiny eye over the side icon

Right now you can only see them if you check each champion individually and I think it's important to present this information more readily

I'm curious why that would be needed. It's an interesting idea and I certainly don't see anything wrong with implementing it - I just don't really see a need for it, either. If you're watching the lanes and fights, you'll see the buffs alot more obviously anyway.

I think it would help casual spectating where you might not be watching/listening the whole time

Baron is obvious but Blue/Red kills don't have a chat callout or anything and buff duration is useful to know as well

Oracles only has notifications for purchase and not loss

I had the idea of having 4 colored dots arranged in a square. Either by the side champion icons, or on the scoreboard. A pink, purple, red, and blue icon. I was also contemplating Elixir icons, but can't think of good justification.

The justification for the 4 indicators? While spectating a streamed match, when a fight happens, or a steal is attempted, it is hard to QUICKLY determine who has the buff. Also, while the game progresses and you want to figure out if the buff has worn off, or if when the jungler picks up the buff, or passes it off, etc...

To simplify my explanation, it's for keeping the spectators of streamed matches informed of what is going on off camera. And I feel a simple dot on the screen, next to the summoner/champion icon could make a huge impact.

I would love to see this info for my team during normal mode, actually.... Yeah, you can click over to everyone, but the new buff icons are weirdly small on some people, etc.

Would also be nice for having sight rings around champions so you can see how far they can see. Sometimes I'm watching and I'm thinking "Oh snap did they just see Shaco moving to their lane?!" alas, you can't really tell for sure how far the vision is on each player. The only option you have is to turn fog or war on for one side, and lets be honest, you generally want to see where everyone is.
