Dark Depths will work.
On turn 1 play swamp. On turn 2, play Dark Depths, put 10 ice counters on it. Tap swamp, play 2 dark rituals, 5 black mana total, play Aether Snap, remove all counters from all permanents and tokens (all at same time when card resolves). Dark Depths is a permanent with counters, so they are removed, but there are no tokens to be removed (black avatar isn't on play yet). Aether Snap is buried (it's a sorcery).
Dark Depths checks (right after Aether Snap resolved) if it there are no ice counters in Dark Depths. There aren't. It triggers, sacrifices itself, and a 20/20 indestructible flying black avatar is put in game.

If you play with 4 dark depths, 4 Aether Snaps, 4 dark rituals and 24 swamps, and take the 1st turn (no draw), the probability of having a winning hand by 2nd turn is 44.5% (aether snap) x 45% (dark ritual) x 35.9% (2nd dark ritual) x 46.3% (dark depths) x 99.2% (swamp) = 3,1%

Wow, good call with the Planeswalkers.. Yes, they are Loyalty Counters. And yes, planeswalkers are permanents.

Day of Planewalker & Token Death.

Also works great against modular decks >_>

Very sweet flavor text.

I LOVE this card in EDH. There's just so many things that use counters that the decks I regularly face use. And it just kills any planeswalker on the field with no questions asked.
