About counter multiplying

Question

How does it go? Does Deepglow Skate double the number of counters on Phytoburst's +5/+5? And do they remain on after turn?

That's a good question.  If you were to cast Phytoburst first, then Deepglow Skate it would double the total.  But at the end of the turn, I'm not sure how many of those +5's come off or if it's 10 counters.

It  would not double as Phytoburst's effect is giving +5/+5 and not 5 +1/+1 counters.

Exactly what Chuck said here. The effect of Phytoburst has nothing to do with counters, so the Skate is irrelevant here. Counters are always static and remain on the cards through the passing of turns, but Phytoburst is a temporary effect that will disappear at the end of the turn. If Phytoburst read "put 5 +1/+1 counters on target creature," then the Skate would be able to be played afterwards to turn those 5 counters into 10 counters. The 10 counters would remain for the rest of the game until the creature was bounced, blinked, killed, etc. Hope this helped @PurePain
