I think that item's existence destroys diversity and interest - you should just use DFG on all burst casters, and all balance needs to factor in an extra nuke. There's no case where DFG is good and DFG isn't abusive - that basically is the definition of toxic.
Removing might not have been great, but removnig the CDR is perfect. If you were looking for CDR, it's already out there; Athenes or Morellos Evil Tome (The latter of which gives MORE CDR, 5 less AP, and costs 300 gold less)
If you wanted a fifth ability, it's still there! You just don't get all the CDR you'll ever need from it anyway.
