Abuse it like you abuse brainstorm. It has amazing synergy with fetchlands and wizardcycling, not to mention Magus of the Future

Upkeep - tap this card
Draw your desired card
Main phase - fetch land, tutor to shuffle your library to repeat (maybe the same turn).

This is a great enabler for a potential control deck revolving around Patron Wizard. It allows you to find more wizards early on, search for the patron control piece, and find your win condition. There's a reason big Jace is so good, and this a budget version that has tribal synergy. As a matter of fact, Jace is a bit like Supreme Inquisitor, Surge Spanner, and Information Dealer rolled into one.

You know what I LOVE about Orcish Librarian? And sorry Lege but I'm picking on you in this case, I love all the "Captain Obvious" comments. This card is awesome in a wizard deck? Well no S**T! Thanks Madden, you cracked the secret! A card triggered by wizards that's actually great in a deck full of wizards. Who'd a thunk it?? Haha and yet the obvious keeps coming. Some ppl are stupid, granted, but NO ONE is so dumb they need that pointed out.. lol

Awesome in a wizard deck with with card drawing effects like Azami, Lady of Scrolls or Arcanis the Omnipotent. It's almost as broken a combo than Sensei's Divining Top, although in the top's case the top IS the combo.

Lady Azami of the scrolls? No... With her, I just wind up drawing about that may cards anyway...
No, what you want it something that lets you draw one card...
