    Well I was in your shoes before.

    Ok so there are 3 basic things about DR:

    It is a 2 attack 3 dura weapon for 5
    It is a bilateral draw card
    The bilateral draw is from the other player's deck

    The main reason you use it is because of the 2 attack 3 durability.

    Now once that sort of weapon is useful you need to find a way to use the other things to your advantage. The most obvious type of deck for that is rush or rushlike. The rason that sor of deck works very well with DR is that any draw card with no tempo loss is very important for rush. DR does not cost tempo because of the instant weapon damage. Rush also has an added benefit, its cards tend to be cheap and great for the early game but not great for late game. DR comes into play t5 at earliest so your cards are already less valuable than your opponent's because he probably built a deck with a normal curve while you built a deck with a very low curve.

    Finally if you could make the card advantage 1 way only it would become really good. This is accomplished through maximum hand size. When DR is comboed with BS it makes your opponent's hand flood particularly if they spent time setting up a draw engine. So a common move becomes BS filling their hand than use DR for the 1 way steal (I actually strongly disagree with that move btw. The reason for this is simply the one stated above. I built my deck with DR in mind so I would almost always rather them draw a card from my deck than draw one from their own deck).

    Tl:dr
    When I build my deck I know I will be using DR. They do not build their deck with the idea of playing against DR. So I get the benefit of having a decent weapon and benefit from the draw far more than my opponent does those 2 things combine to make DR extremely powerful.
