A better answer to artifacts, especially affinity, is Kataki.

Anti-Affinity, but too slow to be played.

This wasn't that useful against affinity because by the time this hit the table, turn 4 or 3 with acceleration you would already be dead or close too it.

Why wasn't this the gold standard against affinity?

Run it in your affinity deck to give your opponent a fair shot.

Too slow. By the time you could pay for this, the Ravager deck would have 10 artifacts on the field. Game Over.

So it negates affinity effects and makes other artifacts without it rather unplayable in accordant decks.

I like the idea, an effect like this could have been that response to Ravager Affinity that was needed back then to keep it from dominating the boards.
Sadly, the mana cost made this card even unappealing for the sideboard, leaving Oxidize and Viridian Shaman as the only useful response one could ask for...if this card would have had a cost for the early game like Green or 1Green, thinks could have turned out differently during Mirrodin.
Wizards, please remember next time to make cards which are especially intended to find use against certain archetypes of decks actually playable ;)

Wait, you say this isn't any good because your opponent's mana acceleration will let him field too many artifacts, but couldn't you do something to pull this out early? Isn't mana generation one of green's specialties?

In the same format Llanowar Elves has been in for ages, this is turn 3 at least. Not terribly slow, but great for multiplayer.
