Generally it's very difficult to get much done with him unless you have a big gear advantage and can just gank someone lower level. Otherwise all you really get is 1 good hit and meager attacks after that. Being invisible and getting 1 hit really isn't enough to warrant him as an assassin.
It's just not enough. Please, I really think this poor guy deserves a buff.
As much as I agree with you, I disagree with you in the fact that Shaco is this "useless" drone of not getting anything done. His kit revolves around him sticking to targets and dishing out pain with backstab, and not necessarily destroying everyone with his abilities. His jitbs are a one point wonder to jungle, and if anything his main source of damage other then his ult (which is among the best in the game for dealing damage) is his E, which you use to finish because you crave the passive to stick to targets like superglue.
