I'll get it out of the way right now: this card is undoubtedly going to be compared to Dark Confidant. That's an unfair comparison, because there is only one Dark Confidant and no other card can be him, and the Visitor does entirely different things. There's a black-red madness-hellbent deck that has been tearing it down in casual for almost ten years now, and she is the ideal headliner for it, making Delirium Skeins and Avatar of Discord much less risky over a couple of turns.  She also adds a severe card-advantage threat to the late parts of multiplayer games when people have spent most of their resources, eliminating the time delay inherent in using Dark Confidant in multiplayer.
Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 4/5
EDH/Commander: 4/5

So, phyrexian arena on a stick with a condition and madness. Hmph. At one point, it's kind of a positive, as you won't instantly bleed yourself to death, the severely low toughness is a bad thing, but it swings for 3, so.... hmm. 
Constructed: 2.5
Casual: 3
Limited: 3
Multiplayer: 1.5
