Perhaps Necroplasm could do a better job

"The use of age counters for cumulative upkeep means you can now wipe out tokens. Just use something like Vampire Hexmage or Hex Parasite to remove all the age counters before your draw step." --Lord_of_Tresserhorn

Unfortunately that won't work.

You're right that age counters haven't been used until 6th Edition,
but the trigger for cumulative upkeep since then looks like this:

At the beginning of your upkeep, if this permanent is on the battlefield, put an age counter on this permanent.
Then you may pay (cost) for each age counter on it. If you don’t, sacrifice it.

Adding a counter, followed by paying the cost is all part of one process; a single ability on the stack.
You don't get the chance to smuggle any abilities in between those two steps (like the activated ability from Hex Parasite, or the triggered ability from Chisei, Heart of Oceans).

This means that you'll always have to pay the cum... (see all)
