It could see some play in decks that really don't like Laggia or Shi En since they can't negate its second effect.
But what it also has over Veiler is that it can be used not just in the Main Phase and that its second effect makes it way better than negating continuous effects. Though in that aspect it also has to compete with Fiendish Chain and Forbidden Chalice. --- http://i39.tinypic.com/2ic15d2.jpg
+Breakthrough Skill can activate during the Battle Phase. +Essentially activates a second time. -Is much more predictable. In other words: "ER MAH GURD THERE'S A BACKROW CARD MST STORM MST MST MST" -As a trap, it is much more easilly negated -Not a monster or a tuner (Less Chaos fodder, less Synchro potential)
I personally like this better, but I can see why others would still prefer Veiler. --- How many lasers does it take to open a bank account at McDonalds?
Chose the third, because it can never hope to replace Veiler (which is a lot harder to stop, has more synergy such as with BLS, can be a tuner albeit rarely will it be used for such), and Fiendish Chain is better in a lot of instances... and this is only when comparing popular effect negators (Skill Drain aside). Wouldn't you rather bottomless, judgment, warning, and potentially compulsory a monster whose effect you are worried about? I also usually associate the slot of said cards with things like Lance, D-Prison, and Mirror Force as well, so it has a lot of competition to use up that kind of slot in a deck. Sure you get to negate effects twice, but the one during your own turn seems weak in the current state of the game, where readily available removal effects are rampant. --- Everything in life is a battle.

we dont speak about chaos or synchrocentric decks but in general... e.g. in a dinorabbit deck will u use veiler or breakthrough skill (BS)?? i think BS... --- I gained the world, but lost my Soul; is there HeartGold to save me?!
Why would you even consider running Breakthrough Skill in Dino Rabbit? Dino Rabbit has Dolkka. Use those spell/trap slots on Warning, Judgment, Bottomless, Book, Lance, etc etc. I'd still rather run Veiler though, as it could help you on the first turn (if you're going second), and it can cause your opponent to overextend (since they see no backfield). --- Everything in life is a battle.
