Well, it has a low rating for a couple of reasons:
1: What, exactly, do you want to play this on? It's useless against anything big. That's going to want to attack anyway. And pairing it up with a deathtouch creature seems like a big hoop for some removal- and at two cards, it's inefficient removal. So, you'd put it on a little guy, then, and watch him splatter over your bruisers? Problem is, most little guys worth the removal are annoying utility creatures who can tap or activate anyway. Even if they don't have tap abilities, usually they have some activated or triggered that they can get off before they run to their death, which is more than you can say for most removal spells. After all, this gives the offending creature quite a bit of time to live. It may not even actually kill them.
2. You don't want to draw into this in a losing situation. Even Shock might be welcome in a top-deck, behind by 19 sort of senario, if you can use that two damage to your advantage. Since this has a ... (see all)

This is clearly made for limited.
And that is where it shines; creature removal at common level.

I wonder why this card has such a low rating. It's like a reverse lure. Granted, you can't play it on a creature with a tap ability since your opponent is probably smart enough to tap it before combat phase.

let a good creature of your opponent that wouldnt attack you but is there just for its ability attack you so you can kill it. not bad huh? deserves a higher rating...

Erm hello? Nettling Curse or anything else that penalizes a player for attacking, combine with either a 0 power monster(with no tap ability) or feebleness, and your opponent hurts themselves every turn for nothing.
