If this had Vanishing it would work like that. You sac something that has Fading when you can't remove a counter, rather than when you remove the last.
So yes, 8 life.

8 life for 3 mana guys. Sure Heroes' Reunion is better, but it's still not that bad. And Radagast, if it didn't have fading, it would be 2 life a turn for 3 mana, far better than Ajani's mantra, which is not that bad itself. Plus any sort of untap effects make it even better. 3.5/5

There are so many better ways to gain 2 life a turn.. Even if it were in any way important.

You still get to use it 4 times under current timing rules right? If so, 8 life for 3 colorless could be worse...

I count using this 3 times, am I missing something?

Turn 1: 2 counters, gained two life
Turn 2: 1 counter, gained 4 life
turn 3: On your upkeep, you can gain two life before it dies...isn't that still only 3 times?

Even 4 times, it would be pretty bad. I just don't like this card, gaining 2 life a turn just isn't that great

Even with proliferate, it's just...eh :/

Of all the ways to abuse proliferate, using it to extend how many turns you gain 2 life is just stupid.

Yeah, maybe stupid to build a deck around it...but put it into a deck with proliferate...it works just fine. It's not a game ender, it just sucks much less in a deck with proliferate.

I reckon it's a solid card--8 life for 3 mana, even if it is a bit slow. Nothing fancy, but way better than a half-star.

Horrible. They could literally take the drawback off and it still wouldn't see much play outside of silly infinite tap-untap tricks to gain infinite life.
