According to Maro, there's a funny story about this card. Peter Adkison, co-founder of Wizards and former President/CEO, played D&D. His character was a wizard named Alchor. The card was originally named Alchor's Tome, to represent a powerful wizard's spellbook. Only, the artist mistook that as Alchor's Tomb, and so the card came to be. Due to a miscommunication, the character was killed off in the MtG setting.

I like how it tells you to use counters but not how to use the counters. It seems more like a suggestion than a command.

@Long_Con: no, it's says "color", not "color or colors". It also doesn't say "in addition to its other colors". So you pick one color, and the creature becomes that and only that.

@ monkeymon42: Legends is the first expansion to cover a lot of things, including counters. Throughout the set, when some quality is changed permanently -- say, by Aisling Leprechaun, or Quarum Trench Gnomes -- they really do just suggest using (unnamed, rules-free) counters to keep track.

So here's what's going on here: the idea behind Legends is that you gather some of the most powerful beings in history, from all the cultures of Dominaria (which at this time was concepted as 25 times larger than Earth, so you have plenty of space to keep storylines separated). They would band together D&D-style.

There is a cycle of lands, such as Adventurers' Guildhouse which grants legends (Legendary Creatures) of a given color the "bands with other... (see all)

If it wouldn't say "you control" I'd maybe put it in a EDH deck about color changing...

"Use counters."

Why counters, plural? What, precisely, am I supposed to be counting? :P
