VitalisStacs Teferi's protection is a weird card...it's very situational and even more passive than a counterspell because you can't use it to protect your own win. And there's the problem of having your stax pieces gone until your next turn, so people just win when you and your stuff are completely phased out. protecting stax by phasing all permanents out just allows everyone to play freely, so it's not a good response to removal.

Hurkyl's recall is most often used to bounce an opponent's mana or stax/combo pieces. The option of using it on myself is fine but not often relevant, for the same reason as Teferi's protection. If someone tries to remove one of my cards, removing all others as well for them isn't a huge trick. It's useful when more artifacts would be destroyed at once though, or when I need gas in my turn and bounce everything EOT so I could for example remove spheres, cast mana vault/monolith again for ramp, then cast the spheres again...more useful for saving single artifacts is Steel Sabotage because it's a Counter/removal/protection that leaves the rest of the board intact. I've had that situation two weeks ago for example, needed to cast hurkyl's on an opponent because he has an isochron scepter with nature's claim, in Response he wanted to destroy one of my important stax pieces and I saved it with steel sabotage and recast it again.

copy artifact is just useful, either for doubling up on spheres, tangle wire, mana...or to copy ramp of my opponents when I don't have something on my own side.
