concidering this enters the battlefield before its effect is applied, its no longer a spell and can target emrakul right?

One of the best commons there are. It certainly beats some rares!

It's just so damn efficient!

such a good removal...extremely efficient...not much else to say. This card is a must in mono white decks to counter control.

I'm going to replace my pacifisms with this since it is more versatile.
Anyways, you can use your own oblivian ring on someone else's oblivion ring to get back your planeswalker.

Very versatile and splashable, unlimited uses. I'm surprised they decided to reprint it so soon...

who doesn't like to open up a pack and see one of these in it during a draft?

Very, very good white removal card. It's at least half the reason I still splash white in my Naya deck (That and Godsire).

Oblivion Ring – Shards of Alara common. The flavor text for the Shards of Alara version of Oblivion Ring ("A circle of light and a word of confinement.") is a reference to the Lorwyn version: "A circle of sugar and a word of forbiddance.". Clearly, no matter what plane you're in, oblivion rings involve circles and words.

Fantastic draft pick... bet it was printed so fast to deal with Planeswalkers (best way to deal with them!).
