I actually think this is stronger; it stops the activated abilities of creatures as well, not just artifacts, all for the low low price of only one extra colorless mana. While the fact that it restricts your own abilities may seem like a huge drawback, keep in mind that it doesn't affect triggered or static abilities, which you could easily make a deck out of.

Admittedly, I see this as really only shining in counter-artifact/ability decks (or a deck whose purpose is to annoy someone).

Its like a Null Rod, but weaker.
Obviously, if you're playing artifact mana acceleration, you'd consider this as an option.
It's also a budget option for Legacy, or null rods 5-X.
Stony Silence also does much the same thing.

regarding the artwork, the crystal reminds me of a plastic form for a water-softening agent...

This would be some tasty control when put into a deck that focuses on vanilla creatures and Murganda Petroglyphs. It's a stretch, but just imagine.

This is actually not made for artifact decks at all. This was pretty much made to balance out against other artifacts. Like *COUGH* skullclamp.

A good card to use for shutting down the nasty Vampire Hexmage + Dark Depths combo.

good and versatile card to control activated-abilities either from creatures and artifacts if your opponent rely on them too much. if 3 mana may be too much to stop your opponent in time, try cursed totem or pithing needle..

I used to have an air freshener in my car that looked like that.

3: Equip costs can't be played.

Seems pretty good...
