See Decree of Savagery. The other tempt cards at least give you a somewhat decent effect for the mana if no one else wants in on the deal, but +1/+1 for 6 mana is extremely underwhelming; maybe even so underwhelming that your opponents are just gonna shrug and let you have that +1/+1 for 6 mana. Unless you team up with people in multiplayer to give your creatures +4/+4 in order to kill a common foe, I can't think of a single reason why you would run this over Overrun, especially in a bant-colored deck such as the one this is printed in. If you're getting a lot out of giving your army +1/+1, then you were probably winning anyway, and Overrun would've probably done a better job since it also gives your creatures trample.
Even in mono-white, at 6 mana I'd rather cast a True Conviction or Light from Within or even Glorious Anthem if no one else helps you buff... (see all)

The worst Tempting Offer card printed. No opponent is going to take your offer unless they have a board position that is so powerful you wouldn't want to cast the Tempt in the first place. Secondly, the mana cost is absurd. a Single anthem effect isn't worth 6. Neither is a double, which you aren't ever going to get anyway.

If it cost somewhere around 2White, it'd be acceptable.

RAV004 is right: If you really need extra counters, you'd have a lot more creatures than your opponents, and they'd rather not accept the offer. If they do accept it, it's because they've got a stronger board presence than you.

If you want to improve your creatures with +1/+1 counters, Decree of Savagery is where it's at.

If you're stuck in White, get Mikaeus, the Lunarch. Not exactly as immediate, but definitely does the job more effectively.

Not sold on that. Why?
If no opponent accepts the offer, this card sucks. You had the same effect for yours on a card costing just four mana, and nearly nobody ever played it. And the more powerful the effect would be for you, such as if you got a token army in play, or creatures that make good use of +1/+1 counters like Triskelion, the less likely an opponent is to accept the offer.

Pretty awful. I wouldn't play this in a million years in any deck.

This would be so nuts in a deck filled with heroic creatures.

@lorendorky- Heroic only triggers when a creature is targeted. This card still sucks.

I love the faustian politics with the Tampting Offer mechanics. It makes for some really fun games.

Gatherer works better in the Companion app!
