This card locks down games. It absolutely does. When every spell you cast is an opportunity to get a pile of extra effects for free, your victory truly is...inexorable.

Although Gilder Bairn is perhaps more efficiently costed (if you ignore the fact that it costs another three for his ability and this does it simply for casting spells), this one does have a few advantages--firstly, the fact that it doesn't target--that means it gets around shroud and Leyline of Sanctity (a huge bonus in the certain environments), and that it can add counters to multiple things at a time--thus you don't have to choose between boosting your planeswalker's loyalty or one of your ascensions and poisoning your opponent to death, you can do all of them. For casting a spell. Rather excellent if I may say so.

Some interesting combos with the infect mechanic
This plus Ichor Rats--multiplayer poison that gets around Leyline of Sanctity, Imperial Mask, and any life-gain that would undo your non-poison damage (about the only thing it would have to worry about is le... (see all)

Combo with Graft mechanics for lulz.

How about Mana ramping with an Everflowing Chalice? Get one Inexorable Tide out on let's say turn 4 using the Chalice, then next turn play a second InexorableTide, Proliferating the Chalice, following up with any zero to {1} costing spell. Double Proliferate by turn six would be really fun.

@Macsen: Targeting always requires the word "target". There are other examples of specific choices that don't use targeting, such as Soulbonding and Phantasmal Image. Proliferation doesn't target so it will always work on shrouded or hexproof creatures. Of course, the creature has to have a counter on it already.

I'm on an unstoppable quest to answer all year-old questions on obscure cards. Excelsior!

Is that art full of contagion engines?

Just so everyone who comments about it can be informed, Magosi, the Waterveil does not combo with Proliferate because you return it to your hand in order to get the extra turn.

This card is super dirty with any ally deck. my ally deck has this card in it and arcbound fiends as well. i found an abosolutly dirty combo with arcbounds and allies. You play stalking stones and terra eternal to make stalking stones indestructible. every upkeep u can move +1 +1 counters from your allies to your arcbounds. when your arcbounds die u can move the counters on to stalking stones(you have to make it into a creature first). basically a strong indestructible land that can get stronger as your arcbonds get stronger. u can also do this with an relentless rats deck. though u still can do this with any indestructible artifact creature.
