One of my favorite artifacts, even if it is a bit expensive. Get 4 of them out at once and negate the attack potential of every creature with power less than 5, not to mention the effect it has on damaging spells or abilities.

Thunderstaff, unicorn, et al don't work if you're combining this with Pestilence

This plus effects such as Pestilence, Manabarbs and Spiteful Visions make for an interesting combination in EDH.

Combo with Forcefield to nullify creature damage for 1 per creature. Obvious combo with Pestilence and similar effects as well.

Comparable to Hedron-Field Purists and the like. Personally, I like the purists better; it works on creatures and can be twice as effective. Also, leveling is now easier than ever with proloferate.

The "high" cost of this is so very necessary.
It is deceptively strong, and falls into the unfun category of cards for your opponent. The fact that they have to find 6 mana to pull it off is what keeps this fair. To all of you who have faced down 2 or more of these simultaneously, you have my sympathy.

There are many ways to cheat this out early. Tinker is one of them, Shape Anew/Ponder combo is another. I didn't even try to think about those, so imagine what people can come up with if they put their minds to it.

This would stop an Empty the Warrens storm deck in its tracks.

I like Thunderstaff better for this effect.
