I think there are definitely going to be people experimenting with the card for sure. The place where this has legs that other similar cards like the already mentioned Disallow and company don't have is that they don't replace themselves when activated like Obstructionist does. 3 mana is still a lot of mana so it may never get legs, but it's very versatile as it can be a 3 mana uncounterable(almost) Squelch or a 3/1 evasive beater, which isn't going to be irrelevant either. Some sort of Aether Vial deck will probably love this the most alongside Spell Queller and the like.

This being an activated ability vs a spell to cast like Disallow already gives it more legs since it will be much harder to counter and replaces itself. It wouldn't surprise me if the card gets some play in Modern, but I'm not expecting it to be adopted by any decks either. It's interesting if nothing else.
