It's definitely somewhat weak - we'll address this when we get the chance but community feedback was very polarized around the item when we first introduced it on PTR.
How about an item that reduces tower damage taken by 25% and is cheap enough to be rushed?
Edit: how about instead of disabling the nearest tower it disables any tower you click on. Then you can use it to assist other lanes, help the Yi backdoor, or even turn off the fountain for a few seconds and kill the guy who is about to run into the fountain with 200 hp.
