I think that the best cards to couple this are Fade Away, Abjure and Crack the Earth, like somebody else already said, because you're making something really effective while getting rid of the Plans.
The solution proposed by Nagazel is quite good, too.
Perilous Research and Read the Runes are nice but you're doing nothing else but drawing cards.

Addictionaly, using it to pay some cost like Auratog or Endless Wurm makes this card very situational.

Why hatch plans when you can hatch beasts?

I built a deck around this card and Decimate, and it is so much fun.

I also run reverent silences as free enchantment kill and darksteel ingot as a backup Decimate target. Decimate+Hatching Plans feels like a Cruel Ultimatum sometimes.

Eternal Witness and Memnotic Wall return my key cards so I can pull off many decimates and hatchings in a game. So much fun!

With Perilous Research you draw 5 cards.

My favorite way to open the egg is with Abjure .

I figure you could use Fade Away. Not only you could potentially destroy several permanents your opponent controls, but you could also skip the paying {1} part by sacrificing this. I can imagine this in some masochistic deck where every single card has a positive move-to-graveyard effect, where you punish yourself relentlessly and then channel the pain into the curious face of your opponent.

That sounded sexy. I'm going to start working on that deck first thing in the morning...

Combine with Arenson's Aura and Enchanted Evening to get some permanent destruction out of your destroyed enchantment + three cards.

Lets be needlessly complicated. Turn it into a creature with a Liquimetal Coating/Tezzeret, Agent Of Bolas combo, then Vivisection it. Six cards baby!

Or I don't know, pair these with Hellcarver Demon to make the self-annihilation less nightmarish

Or you could play it with Perilous Research to get 5 cards...

This seems like a card that would work very well in any deck built around Leyline of Singularity.
