With voltaic construct, it becomes pay 6: Destroy one permanent per turn (and pay an additional 8 for any further permanents you wish to destroy in the same turn). With any kind of proliferate mechanic to go with it, it can be a lot more cost effective on destruction beyond the first.
This, voltaic construct, gilder bairn, and something to tap gilder (or something to make it unblockable) can get this to work for sure.

4 mana and three extra turns before the first permanent would be destroyed may seem slow, being colorless justifies its potential. Definitely require some set up to speed up.

It's awesome if it can fit into your deck. Lots of cards can give it charge counters.

I'd say it's more of a casual card than anything else. Won't make it to the top decks, that's for sure.

The flavor is out of this world. It reminds me of that one card, you know, that card everyone liked to hate on for being mythic? I'd say this is in the same boat. Think about it. If it could hit every turn, early on, it would be far too powerful. But this is mythic because of the intense flavor behind it. A cannon that blows holes through worlds. What could be more mythic than that? Sure, the mechanic is slow and clunky, but a weapon of this magnitude has to be slow for it to not be overly powerful. And when you're punching holes in worlds, you can't fire every turn. That just doesn't make sense. And then again, you can cheat counters onto it, making it easier to wield.

Totally going into the Myr deck I'm building in my head right now. Massive flavor, massive potential. Maybe for Casual, yes. But I still absolutely love it.

Mana Acceleration and Proliferate spam will make this a very... VERY powerful artifact. Otherwise it's just kinda "Meh"

Only effective in combination and not that hard to handle. I wouldn't build a deck around it. And I wouldn't waste the number of slots necessary to make the thing fire "effectively."
