Lets just say for the sake of a good example that your opponent has 97 nonland permanents on the battlefield all having different names, and you have 3 oblivion rings on the battlefield exiling 3 of your opponents nonland permanents, again, all with different names. You have to find a way to get rid of every single one of those nonland permanents before your next turn. In hand you have 2 cards, Detention Sphere and Oblivion Ring.

Play Detention Sphere exiling your 3 oblivion rings.
Play Oblivion Ring exiling Detention Sphere.
3 O-Ring ETB triggers go on the stack.
1st O-Ring exiles another of the 3 O-Rings.
Exiled O-Ring's leave play ability goes on stack and resolves with nothing coming back because it hadn't exiled anything yet.
Exiled O-Ring's ETB trigger exiles a nonland permanent, permanently.
3rd O-Ring triggers exiling the O-Ring that exiled the Detention Sphere.
Detention Sphere exiles two O-Rings, bringing back 2 O-Rings.
1 O-Ring exiles a nonland permanent, the other exiles... (see all)

This is to Oblivion Ring what Maelstrom Pulse is to Putrefy. Sort of, but you get my point.

While it's mostly better than o-ring, the only really consistent thing this will do better than o-ring is hit tokens that put many into play at once. With bonfire still running rampant, that shouldn't happen too often in standard.

If you have the money then this is worth it over o-ring, but at the same time if it's out of your budget it's still okay to run o-ring.

This would be epic in multi-player if most of your opponents are playing with nearly the same zombie deck.

Notice the cost of both this and o-ring fall underabrupt decays reach. I think that had to happen to secure golgari's spot as number one.

either way I love this card, with supreme verdict and counterspells, U/W has some neat tricks.

Ooo... Combine this card and o-ring, arrest, ethereal armor and righteous authority, plus some detain effects( martial law anyone?) and protection... I can see that deck getting very out of hand.
