This card is specially useful with Sun Titan and Roc Egg allowing you to look the top card and play a 3/3 flier again and again.

I say this is currently underrated at 2.9. This thing single-handedly stops my Corrupted Consciences from being useful in Standard. It also lets the controller scry whenever one of his creatures would be destroyed in combat - highly useful in a Dark Tutelage deck.

Wow! I use this card all the time! I only have one though, wish I had another one. I use this while I two Blade of the Bloodchiefs equiped to Vampire Nighthawk or a Butcher of Malakir so that I scry 1, my opponent has to sac a creature and Butcher gets +8/8.

Yay for sac engine. :>
With the right cards (Shirei, Shizo's Caretaker) there is lots of ways to abuse this. :>

Ugh...the flavour text...WHY?!?! Can be good in the right deck, bare minimum he lets you scry whenever something gets bolted etc. Flavour text is almost as bad as Renegade Doppelganger. I miss the good days of flavour text.. Obliterate and Flame Javelin come to mind.

Although it probably isn't constructed material this guy can work quite well in limited formats. Use Viscera Seer to sac a chump blocker, an attacker that's going to fall victim to combat shennanigans and manipulate your top deck to bounceback next turn. As mentioned before Viscera Seer+Reassembling Skeletons can be used to scry through a large portion of your deck increasing the chances of drawing what you need when you need it.

I really liked thoughtpicker witch during triple Ravnica... but you could use her aggressively. I'm not sure how I feel about this, especially with damage no longer using the stack. I suspect that excellent players will use this card ingeniously in some decks at some times. The rest of us will leave it in our sideboards and not really miss it.

This turned out quite useful in limited at the prerelease. Even if your pool doesn't provide for combo potential, you still get a free scry whenever you chump block, play an Arc Runner or an Act of Treason, or your opponent plays a removal.

Probably not good in constructed, though.

If you sac an Eldrazi spawn, does the vampire get scry and also the mana from the spawn?"

Or if you had a Bloodthrone Vampire out, would it boost both of them?

Does you know?

can be useful for sacrificing monsters that get mind controlled or domesticated, plus you get a free scry out of it.

not amazing but still quite handy.
