You guys are all missing the point: HE'S RIPPING PHONE BOOKS IN HALF! Strictly better than Scornful Egotist. That wuss couldn't even kill you.

A little slow or too much self-distructive also for graveyard-decks. Even if some decks could use it (but nobody does right now) I think it's not "so good".

Lame card. There are way better cards to use in your dredge deck.

Sheesh, it's no drawback. Think some more. :) You can use him with pedantic learning as a card draw engine. Or to get narcomoeba into play, or any incarnations or stuff with flashback/unearth/retrace in your graveyard, or get threshold. Not saying he is the most efficient, but I put him sometimes in very large decks of mine.

Seems like it was intended to use with the flashback and threshold mechanics... and perhaps Mortal Combat? (it was originally printed in the same set, after all)
Using it with Narcomoeba and Donate, as mentioned by some of the other reviewers, also seems like a good idea :)

this could be good in an EDH garveyard based deck

A 2 cmc 1/1 with a drawback? Donate i guess, horrible card.

The fact that this card perpetually mills you is a major drawback. And pardon me while I laugh at you for considering this card and pedantic learning a card draw engine. Finally, this is not a viable option for getting cards into your graveyard as you don't get to choose what cards go into your graveyard (unless you decide to waste more slots on ponder and the like).

Just stick with corpse connoisseur, buried alive, entomb or any of those blue "draw X, discard Y" type cards.
