This card has so many entertaining interactions from a flavour perspective. "I'm going to take the water that you flooded my Plains with (using Aquitect's Will) and turn it into a head for my Apocalypse Hydra!" "I'll turn my creature back from a gold statue (after running into your Aurification which will cause Ashling the Pilgrim to do more damage when she explodes!"

And those are just a couple of quick ones I found when searching for cards that do things with counters... notice I only got through "A" in my search. :) I'm sure you can find much sillier interactions.

Remember that all cumulative upkeep cards use Age counters now due to errata; this card will allow you to keep any of them in play forever.

I had a casual deck a long time ago that used this with quicksilver fountain. I would sit there pumping up my creatures while my opponent slowly lost all their lands lol (well not really, but their colours disappeared).

Removing a counter is part of the cost, so tapping to "heal" a persist cannot be responded to.

At the beginning of my upkeep I sacrifice nothing and now I shall put a soot counter on this Smokestack. Your turn.

At the end of your turn, I remove a soot counter and put a +1/+1 counter on my this Inkmoth Nexus that I so happen to turn into a creature. I hope you're ok with that.

Ok, my turn again? I shall put a soot counter on Smokestack and attack with a 2/2 infect blinkmoth. Your turn.

At the end of your turn, I remove a soot counter and put a +1/+1 counter on my this Inkmoth Nexus that I so happen to turn into a creature. What? Why are you looking at me that way?

Ok, my turn again? I shall put a soot counter on Smokestack and attack with a 3/3 infect blinkmoth. Your turn.

Oh. My. God.
I'm an idiot who apparently doesn't fully read cards. Had one of these in my proliferate since I first made it, and I only used it to move counters around to ensure that every creature I controlled could have a counter once the proliferation got crazy, so none got left out. It never, ever occurred to me that this would remove persist's -1/-1 or even infect/wither counters when my creatures get used against me. Wow. I... just... my mind. This is an uncommon?! All this time and I completely failed to use its full potential. Well, then.
