Better than Maelstrom Pulse in some cases against indestructible permanents.

That said, I don't think this is strictly better than Oblivion Ring, given that you need to play W and U to cast Detention Sphere, while O-Ring only need white mana.

No one here has stated that this can be used as a MASSIVE Tutor combo card.

Think about casting this on YOUR OWN Blade Splicer, so now you kill your Sphere and all the sudden you just got 4 3/3 First Strikers and 4 1/1s.

Not good enough? How about Geist-Honored Monk? Anyone want 4 12/12 Vigilance and 8 1/1's?

There are plenty of abusable effects out there right now, here are most of the good interactions I found:
Nevermore - Pick 4 cards they cannot play, RIGHT NOW. If you pull this off from turn 4-5, you can stop them from even being able to kill the Nevermores.
Oblivion Ring - The little brother works well with the big one. Ob ring something, then get 4 of them by turn 4 that is devastating removal.
Pithing Needle - Getting 4 of these at any time, against the right deck, will be the game.
Puresteel Paladin - Because drawing 4 any time... (see all)
