Eh, I like it. I've seen success with it. If you hit it on T5 T6, and have your mana, it can be crushing. Otherwise you do just hold them. But, in a deck with blue... Holding a card can be psychologically powerful.
That's actually the reason I like Traumatize. If you hit it on the perfect turn, and you can actually cast it, it's such a demoralizing hit... That alone can win you the game. If your opponent has no/limited GY recovery, the words "Half your deck." have more weight than the actual cards you remove. Most people play differently, panicked. In a true "pro" situation, at the final table, you hit someone for "Half your deck."... Well, you've got to be one cool customer to take that in stride and know you statistically can still recover.
Not saying it's a great card or anything. But factors like that are just as important as the cards themselves. Throwing your opponent off his game, well... He's off his game, isn't he?
Just my opinion. Remember, I play wacky decks and the highest table I've ever been to is my FNM and a kitchen.

I would prefer blue/black.
Isn't he a thief?
A thought thief?
Isn't that very much blue/black's thing?
