You know, I would have thought that the ability to get rid of an indestructible critter would be rated higher....

This is actually a pretty decent sideboard card as it allows YOU to CHOOSE which card your opponent must sacrifice, when typically, when you make your opponent sacrifice a creature, like through a Geth's Verdict as an example,its his/her choice. So if your opponent manages to drop down an indestructible creature (yes there's not very many but its always best to come prepared) you'll be able to attach this card to that creature, and your opponent will pretty much be forced to sacrifice it (since indestructible does not protect from sacrifice effects).

Would this card work with Mycosynth Lattice, Mirrorworks, and Parallel Lives? Would these cards in play first let you make multiple copies of it to hit multiple creatures the opponent controls?

It isn't efficient.
It isn't particularly good.
I don't even understand how the flavor is supposed to make sense (Surprise! You had a robot....er...growing inside of you. Yeah, growing...).
But it does kill the other guy's creature.
It does give you a chump blocker in return (more than a chump blocker with enough Galvanizers, Overseers, Myr Matrix, etc).

I will try to fit it into my Mono Black Myr deck, but I doubt it will make it out of the sideboard as long as Grasp of Darkness, Go for the Throat, Dismember, etc are still legal.

@ EvilCartogrpher and anyone else who doesn't understand the flavour

The Myr that grows inside the creature isn't a robot, it's a living machine. Just like living weapons and the metal that grows on the Mirrans it is an organic living metal. Phyrexia implants a small Myr made of this kind of metal inside the victim and it grows then it ends up killing the host when is "born" by bursting out of the host's body.

Weaker though it would be, I would have preferred "destroy", so that some poor regenerator could agonizingly birth dozens of Myr.

Edit: ...Like the original design:
Parasite Implantation
1B
Enchantment — Aura
Enchant creature
At the beginning of your upkeep, destroy enchanted creature and put a 1/1 colorless Myr artifact creature token onto the battlefield under your control.

The fact that they can get off one last attack before the creature dies has cost me games and makes this, in most cases, inferior to a simple Doom Blade.
