I don't necessarily look at a card based on how it will work in block/T2, but how it will work in the wider range of environments. You put this in a deck with 1st Gen Mirrodin cards that have/create/manipulate counters...then think Power Conduit. Moreover, there are many effective ways to use this outside of just -1/-1 counters and charge counters. Level-up counters. Even nail your opponent's permanents that have cumulative upkeep (yes, that's a counter too). The only reason I don't give it a 5-star rating is because the activation cost is high. 2 mana would be broken. 3 mana would be perfect (in my world). The beauty is you choose which permanents get the boost. That's a very, very powerful aspect of Proliferate in general when you consider the nature of most global-reaching effects in the game. It may be underrated in the long run, though, by players who don't know how to use it to its full potential.

A cheap removal spell always hurts. Contagion Clasp, even if you don't kill the creature, can just proliferate until the creature does die. While I would put Contagion Engine over this card just because it's practically a bomb, the Clasp has good stuff up its sleeve.

The more I look at this card, the more I like it. It can even be used in a fungus deck to speed up the growth of your saprolings. Even better when you've got Doubling Seasons too.

Cute card. Not that strong, but playable and versatile, especially great for multiplayer politics. 3.5/5

Proliferate will probably become a staple in legacy in vintage formats because so many sets use counters in some form or another, and this card lets you use them all.
Quest counters for some of the harder conditions to fill, or just to speed up the process
Level up counters
Lands with depletion counters or something like it
Add time counters to your opponent's suspended cards
The list goes on, and I have every confidence that going forward, this card will only get better.
If the activation cost bothers you, make it an artifact creature and use Training Grounds.
