People use Piscators because its good and its cheap. Not because its the optimal wand to use in every situation. But please feel free to link a realistic pob where piscators is better than this wand.
At least with this wand it's a lot easier to build a usable character. It's true that Piscator's will end up better but that's only if you can afford the abyss jewels to make it that way. In 3.0 this would've been noticeably better.
Unfortunately with abyss jewels being a thing, it's better to gear with flat and go piscators than stacking percent increase and using a flat damage wand. Maybe at the highest tier a flat wand is better, unsure.
If Piscator's 100-115% increased elemental damage net you more than that, you have to have basically zero increased damage which is literally impossible even with just a typical wander tree and quality
poe trade currency.
In practice, you'll need a very specialized build and a corrupted culling strike piscator's (or a setup that's not well optimized at all) to beat this wand but I guess the reddit piscator's circlejerk is too strong here.
Having said that, a rare wand can still get much better than OP's. Some of his rolls (e.g. crit) are mediocre and there are better mods than triple flat elemental damage for prefixes.
