This card is like a puzzle with no answer. I want to find something to like, but I can't. As others have said, mill is an all in strategy that doesn't have any spells that work with this. Evanescent Intellect feels like it was printed to combo with this, but both cards are awful. The combo of exiling face up and paying BlueBlue to activate kills this as a control strategy.

Storm decks have Grapeshot, Dragonstorm, Tendrils of Agony and Brain Freeze. I don't care if it exiles, this isn't good enough to see play with storm.

I've used this card in limited and actually won a few of my matches due to it. I used it in combination with floodtide serpent , fate foretold, and counter/bounce spells. Obvoiusly, the counter ability was useless in this format since most people only had 1 or 2 copies of the same card, but I was able to mill some of their win conditions and in one case I milled their entire deck with it. Definitely not the strongest card.

Maybe you are playing Theros block constructed and are desperate to make some kind of U/B mill stall deck with other defensive heroic/inspired creatures so you use things like Retraction Helix or Necrobite until something worth countering happens? He is two devotion! Why do I have so many of him ;-;

Hmmmm... This is so close to Grimoire Thief, but they wanted to make it different. I think he would have seen standard play if he got this in addition to everything else:
BlueBlueBlue, Sacrifice Mindreaver: Put target permanent card exiled with Mindreaver on the battlefield under your control.
This way he is not broken, still not as good at what Grimoire Thief does as the thief itself, but with an additional pricey but worthwhile option.
Either that or let him exile more cards than Grimoire Thief, how about 5?
