@HairlessThoctar: Wrong. The first ability resolves, you draw a card. The second ability resolves, you have a card in your hand, it does nothing. It's not "Activate this ability only if you have no cards in hand", it's "When this ability resolves, if you have no cards in hand, draw a card"

The only way that works is if you play the card you drew straight away, in which case why stack the two abilities anyway?

Regardless of how many times you activate this ability you will still only draw one card. When the ability resolves you draw a card iff you have no cards in hand. If you activate it in response to itself, when the second instance resolves you will not draw any cards.

Cadaverous Bloom? Play out your hand then sift through your deck for free? Of course, there are better ways to use it...

Blue hellbent card advantage.
Sounds good, I'd spash and play it over Nihilistic Glee at any time. Possibly worth consider using instead of Mindstorm Crown as well.
Or as Kenji already said, Madness might find some use with that card as well.

this card's low rating has to be from the fact it is sooooo Johny that it's hard to see just how awesome it is.

holy blue hellbent batman! could use in a grixis hellbent/unearth deck if needed

That would be way too easy to abuse, and most likely way too overpowered. Any card that lets you discard when you want would read 'draw and discard until you find the card you want'. Oh, and the card I am looking for is seismic assault to win the game. Discard outlet? How about wild mongrel so that you can kill them with 1 swing.

Kenji18: "The Wild Mongrel or Psychatog could even make use out of it". YES, they can discard it.

My first thought when I saw it was Bottled Cloister, so that during each of your opponent's turns, you could draw at least 1 card. If it happens to be an instant or flash card, you can play it, then draw again.

If you use it with Seismic Assault, you will either hit a land that can burn for 2 (then draw again), or you will hit some other relevant nonland card.

It can also save you if someone makes you discard 2 cards when you have Null Profusion out.

The Wild Mongrel or Psychatog could even make use out of it

If you look at it by itself, I agree that it isn't very good, but there are definitely some situations where it would be extremely handy.
