Does anyone at all use Astrologer?

This card's ability seems pointless. Milling your deck's top card into your graveyard and gaining the card's loyalty cost sounds like a decent boost (if playing Elder, Ong, or Ming), but, in reality, you only gain the undiscounted loyalty!

So, for example, if playing Ong, and card's loyalty when turned over is at least one point less due to Ong's Hero ability.

If u have even a single unit in play, it is unlikely to gain anything bc loyalty is discounted even more. I'm not certain, but I think Astrologer may even count itself as a unit in play for purpose of its own ability, bc every time I have played thus unit using Elder, the bonus was zero!

So Astrologer seems like a really expensive way to put 1 card into your graveyard!

At first I thought you are talking about astronomer, I read the post like 3 times and thinking tf. Yes, his ability should be original loyalty cost, maybe it was overlooked
