That’s some lofty praise, but I agree. Sometimes, the things you can do with him are just dumb. When he first came out, we as a group ran primarily artifact ramp(not many Gx decks, maybe 1 or 2 on a semi-regular basis). Sol Rings were common, but so were 3CMCRocks. This one guy dropped Dack turn 2 off of a Sol Ring/Signet, stole the other Sol Ring with 1 floating, tapped to play Worn PS. Untapped turn 4 with 10 mana available. Then , with Dacks rummaging +1 there was a steady stream of board building. It was pretty gross.
Probably the closest thing to a auto-include planeswalker in EDH - if you're in UR, you need a pretty good reason not to run him. He's cheap, has two good non-ult abilities and is relevant in pretty much all stages of the game. If all you do is steal a Sol Ring, you're happy. If he actually sticks around and gets to add looting or god forbid a second theft, you've gotten some fantastic value for 3 mana and one card.
The -6 makes me glad for all those blue Twiddle effects.

Card advantage is not the same thing as card draw. Something for 2B cannot be strictly worse than something for BBB or 3BB. If you're taking out Swords to Plowshares for Plummet, you're a fool. Stop doing these things!
