I usually just play online casually through either Cockatrice or the Duels of the Planeswalkers series. As of recently I can also sometimes be found on MTGO. I also like limited and attend most prerelease events, where I got the bulk of my paper cards.
Hit me up if you like to play or want to trade stuff on MTGO although my collection there is rather limited. If you have some free ones to give away though, I'm looking to expand my collection without paying too much. :)

You know you untap all your permanents in your untap phase, which comes before upkeep? Then in response to the rebound trigger, you can animate the Nexus to make it targetable for Distortion Strike .
Anyway, both cards have their merits, but I guess for your type of deck, the Distortion Strike might be preferred.
Why go through all the hoops if you could just play 4x Progenitus with Mirror Gallery in the sideboard? With infinite mana and the option to spend it on any color due to Mycosynth Lattice , you don't exactly need to do all the rest.
And since Progenitus has protection from everything, you don't even need to remove your opponent's board.
Oh well, whatever. I guess it's a case of "why do simple if you can do something complicated instead!"
Yeah, that's probably true. Most of it's cards are from Theros though (except Grisly Salvage ), so after rotation the three main hate cards Rest in Peace , Scavenging Ooze and Crypt Incursion will be gone. It might pick up its pace then, depending on other new hate cards that might come in.
Well, I guess it just does what Wizards intended Oblivion Ring to do. The permanent exile was never part of the intended design, so they removed it.
The 'only opponent's permanents' part removes some synergy with stuff like Worldfire but also adds security in some fringe cases, where your opponent only had one non-land permanent and bounced it in response to you casting the ring, in which case you had to exile one of your own things (not a 'may' ability).
@ Putrefy no it doesn't. Read the Gatherer rulings on Banisher Priest
Banisher Priests ability causes a zone change with a duration, a new style of ability thats somewhat reminiscent of older cards like Oblivion Ring. However, unlike Oblivion Ring, cards like Banisher Priest have a single ability that creates two one-shot effects: one that exiles the creature when the ability resolves, and another that returns the exiled card to the battlefield immediately after Banisher Priest leaves the battlefield.
If Banisher Priest leaves the battlefield before its enters-the-battlefield ability resolves, the target creature wont be exiled.
