You obviously didn't get what he said. You don't view Magic cards by their worst-case scenario because it will never occur, usually because you put them into decks that maximize their strengths and you don't cast them if there's that risk in the first place. You view cards by what is likely to happen when you actually choose to play them. If your opponent doesn't have a creature in hand (either b/c he's playing a creatureless deck, he's got no cards in hand or you Gitaxian Probe him or Duress him and confirm he doesn't) then you can put any creature in your hand into play free.

This card is super-underrated and actually pretty scary.

You do.

So it's a decent way to drop e.g. Hellkite Overlord for 2 if their hand is empty.

Nobody seems to notice that, in the right deck, this is a red Show and Tell versus about one-third of the Legacy metagame.

I really want to play a deck that has all the fun random red cards that are in Magic. Lots of coin flipping, wagering life, and revealing cards. Would be fun :D

potentially turns anything into a two drop? sweet!

If your opponent doesn't reveal a creature, do you still get yours? If so, it can be good in a format with few creatures (Type 1). This could be a back-up for Oath.

The catch of this is that you lose a card to either put a creature onto the battlefield that would have had about the same cost to begin with, or that you even let your opponent put a creature in for free.
