It does not work with Suspend, they are not permanents till they hit the battlefield. And they are not in play, they're inside the game

that's all fine and dandy if you have any counters to remove.

By far one of the most useful cards WotC has made. It makes all the dumb spells with (cumulative) upkeep finally worth playing, even if that worth may be minuscule. E.g. Snowfall

I absolutely love this card with Decree of Silence.

Functions well with Unstable Mutation, Quicksilver Fountain, anything with Persist, anything with a Cumulative Upkeep cost, and a large number of other things. One of my favorite cards from the Mirrodin block.

One of the most utilitarian cards ever printed. Need more of smart cards like this instead of ridiculous power creep.

so versatile. my favorite use is in a deck with persist creatures (or in any deck with cauldron of souls). nothing ever dies for good unless it is exiled. 5/5

Great Vs Poison/ Infect / Wither users, block it with a fatty, use Power Conduit to remove the counter and convert it to +1/+1 or even to a charge counter for your Lux Cannon / Titan Forge.

Good stuff. Even more so now that Besieged is out and has increased to popularity of Infect.
Would also work really with the new Phyrexian Hydra.
Ok utility along side Aboroth (negates his upkeep)
Works well with Biting Tether to Mind Control and negate the upkeep.
Use along side Unstable Mutation to negate the side effect and get a +3/+3 for 1 Blue

Couldn't ask for anything more fun! So flavourful too! It turns any battlefield using charge counters into variable circuit board of activity. Excellent card Wotc.

very, very useful with the persist mechanic, can remove the -1/-1 counters on 2 target creatures at once
