I've been playing this in my Niv-Mizzet EDH deck, and found that... it hasn't been that useful.

I say this because each turn, I draw 3+ cards. I now have 3 more things to work with, especially with Niv- Mizzet out.

"Well, I'll then play Memory Jar to deal 7 damage to something... and then I'll equip Curiosity to Niv, and then I'll tap him to draw a card, starting the inevitable "infinite draw" combo. That's game"

I dunno. I know it's good, but 4-mana for Merfolk Looter's effect?... I dunno.

Errata'ed extra ability: "Sacrifice Desolate Lighthouse when a Leviathan enters the battlefield under an opponent's control."

Instant Speed Draw 1, Discard 1 for 1RedBlue that can be repeated whenever you don't happen to have Izzet Charm....? Why haven't I seen this in more Izzet decks?

The "tides of homicidal spirits" part cracks me up.

I don't get why so many people are calling this ability over-costed. Abilities on lands are always over-costed, otherwise the lands are way too good. Its a land, it comes out untapped and taps for mana. When you are building a deck, it uses a land slot. In exchange for not making colored mana, you get an ability. Remember Library of Alexandria? That land with a free but awkwardly conditional ability? How useful could that be?

Desolate Lighthouse has served me well. In a control deck, if you can afford to have some lands not producing color (Use cards like Mana Leak), it lets you loot at the end of your opponent's turn. Anything that can dig up your win con card is good in my book. It does that without using a spell slot. As others have said, it works great with Miracles and flashback. Its not the best land out there, but its a really solid one.
