So, what; Detainment Spell? I didn't see Detain on the set's mechanics page.

Assuming it's something like that; and the timing issues work out, then I kinda like it and kinda don't. I like it because it's an interesting answer to creatures that isn't a total shutdown. And I dislike it, because the times it's not a shut-down are the times you really really need it to be, and your opponent says "Ok, have a card, I don't care any more."

Dunno. Of course, I might have completely misguessed what detain was.

Detain is the Azorius mechanic from last September, as on Azorius Arrester, Martial Law and Lyev Decree.

Your thoughts pretty much apply, though.
