You can always have a Gaea's Blessing or two in your deck, you won't kill yourself with this card.
It is, however, a nice combo piece. With something like Seeker of Skybreak, it will fuel your graveyard Cephalid Breakfast style to swing with a Lhurgoyf of some sort.
The card is quite overlooked, but I like it very much.

I agree with Iryanmadayana, Gaea's Blessing is the way to go here. At least two of those, so in case you draw both, you can shuffle one back into your library with the other.
Mesmeric Orb is so good. Cheap to cast and it doesn't require any further maintaining so you can concentrate on your defense.

This card is very seriously one of the most potent milling cards ever printed. Nothing else can make everyone shovel their libraries into their graveyards quite like this card can.

I play it in a mono-blue deck alongside Dreamborn Muse and various forms of control. I don't have anything to shuffle my graveyard back into my library. I merely play carefully.

"oh man, this card is extremely fun to play with Dingus Staff and Orb of Dreams haha."

Doesn't work. Creature cards going from the top of your library to your graveyard is not the same as creatures going to the graveyard from the battlefield. Dingus Staff won't be triggered. Get yourself a Bloodchief Ascension.

the card is funny. I can picture that card fitting perfectly in my citadel of pain deck.

Fun things to do with this card:

Necromancer's Covenant
Haunting Echoes

I have an edh deck (bant colors, Angus McKenzie general) that centers around playing this and copying it (Sculpting Steel, Copy Artifact) to mill everyone out. The self-milling here is sweet too, since it fuels Loam shenanigans, pumps Knight of the Reliquary and turns Eternal Witness into Demonic Witness. ;)

This is quite loopable, and it, like Keening Stone, is one of the few mill cards that are effective win conditions in non-mill decks. It plays well in decks with unearth, since those cards play out of the graveyard, and the zombies don't untap, so you end up milling yourself slower than your opponent(s) that way.

Hey this seems to work well with Copperhoof Vorrac from the same set.
