Block elements on website which changes the name prior the first dot ( /

I cannot find the solution of customizing a filter in a way that certain elements stay blocked, also when the first part (normally "www") of the domain name changes very often.
There are annoying elements which are on every users' page on Deviantart and blocking them on one users' page makes it appear again on other pages.

Can't find it in the Adblock filter customizing help site.
Can you help?
