This card also single-handedly made the cards from Legends like Quagmire and Deadfall 100% useless.

Not necessarily. Quagmire, Deadfall and the like can be used to prevent people from using landwalk against you (especially if you're playing mono-color) while probably allowing your own creatures to landwalk. The Staff is preferable if you're playing a deck with no landwalking creatures (which is most of them), but the older cards still have a narrow, additional use.

Really depends on the meta. With all the new zombies in Innistrad my Zombie Master has become crazy useful lately.

Worth considering for a sideboard spot.

Very good when combined with Erham Djinn

The biggest problem with deciding how useful this card is is the fact that so people actually use landwalk now, especially when there's plenty of ways to make a creature unblockable that don't require an opponent to have a certain type of land.

I think it's a good one to use... just not useful because there's never a reason to use it.

Landwalk isn't played commonly enough to make this worthwhile...this card existed because Wizards was really wary about unblockability at the time...

Or, you could say, instead of a 3 cost artifact, use Hammerheim, which is a land, and might even surprise your opponent.

There is almost always something better to fill the slot in sideboard. There are uses for this, but there are alternative solutions (direct removal) and better options that make its super narrow use pointless. i think will pass.

"A great addition to any deck in fact"

I think you mean terrible***. Only time it's useful is in EDH when people can moderately abuse landwalking abilities. Even then, I'd rather this be an Oblivion Stone.
