This is just odd to me. There is a lot of guesswork on playing this card. It’s a very, very narrow hoser, only preventing extra turns.
It’s secondary ability is a bit more useful, but…only a bit. You still need a way to kill artifacts on your own, as artifact wipes are pretty uncommon, and it’s really unlikely an opponent will voluntarily destroy this. Not to say there aren’t combos this will work with but…I dunno, I can’t see myself losing a spot in a deck for it.
Now…what it’s supposed to represent…

Every artifact based EDH deck wants this. Because they are already playing Trading Post. There’s your sacrifice outlet. I have a friend with a Sharuum deck that has plenty of ways to use/abuse this.
And it’s a giant, dragon rib cage and spine. Probably Ugin’s…

True, but it doesn’t change that it’s first ability to very unlikely to be useful. I dunno, it frustrates me because it ‘a clearly trying to be something, but I’m struggling to figure what it is.

It’s a new style of design on cards I’ve noticed WotC playing with in recent years. Things that just sit on the battlefield and provide some small, tiny value until you get around to cracking it or providing extra parts for increased value. Like Glaring Spotlight or the Gods in Theros.
