    There is one large problem with this. Sets (that aren't reprint or Modern/Vintage/Legacy only) don't have +1/+1 and -1/-1 counters in them. In fact it's one or the other.

    And you have two creatures from same editions Mirrodin Besieged, which was 4 months after Scars of Mirrodin, a set you gave me **** about. And Melira was given that ability so she fulfills a story purpose. Maybe she experienced bleed from black as well.

    I'd take M20 or M19 as proof, over a single card that happened 8 years ago, and didn't happen since...

    That's why it has the second clause, that once it reaches your starting life, you're dead whether at 23 or 3.000.000.

    Energy counters have design limits as well. It's from what I've talked with people on discord a shared chared counters pool. It can't ever produce mana for example, and never without consuming another resource like Tap.

    You have to track if you used the ability or not.

    Replace enchantment with artifact.

    One to reprsent them blaiming you and two to show they aren't "clean" so to speak.
