Apparently, a nice addition to the extended Tinker decks, as Judge Bill explains below.  While it isn't as useful in limited, it's a decent sideboard to foil some nasty activated ability that you can't deal with. Still, in draft, that would make it a late pick.  Truly, it's value is in the constructed arena.

Constructed: 3
Limited: 3
Current Price:
$4.50

The foil for all the Tinker based decks. With this out, they can't activate their Myr Incubators, Mindslavers, Boshes, Goblin Welders, or any other artifact or creature ability that isn't a mana ability. And when you're ready, you can just Tinker this away for the card you need to win the game.
 
In limited, it isn't as useful, as you don't have as many abilities to worry about. But if this is the only way you have to deal with Spikey, use it.
 
Constructed: 3
Limited: 2
