Creature attacks with enchantments attached, one being lure.  That creature dies but then gets regenerated using krosan wayfarer.  Do the enchantments remain on the regenerated creature?
a creature that is regenerated never died
it will keep the enchantments (and on the flipside it will not activate Morbid)

Yes. You're probably thinking of the creature as going to the graveyard and coming back, but that's not the case; regenerating does not bring anything back from the graveyard, it prevents it from going there in the first place. Since it never left the battlefield, there is no reason the Auras would be removed.

Would this apply to counters as well?

Yes.  The counters will stay on.  The creature did not leave the battlefield, so there's no reason for anything to be removed.

As a creature in play there is no functional difference between a token or a normal card in regards to regeneration.

A card effect would need to spell out clealry that it is affecting a token differently than a card; otherwise an effect that hits a creature effects both tokens and cards equally.

Regeneration taps a creature, it lives. At no point in the regeneratoin did it die or go to the graveyard. The creature whether token or card simply stayed alive and on the battlefield and became tapped.

Wait, you can regen being -1 until end of turn?

No. You can only regenerate destruction (0 toughness is not destruction).

Please autocard: [c]Shard Phoenix[/c] = Shard Phoenix.

You can not regenerate a creature from having 0 or lower toughness.

What Enigma meant was that if you Murdered a creature that was regenerated, and then you followed it up with Tragic Slip you would only do -1/-1 since no creature died.

You--Kunovega--are confusing counters with tokens.  They are two completely different things.  OP was asking if counters (+1/+1, -1/-1, charge, petrification, etc.) would remain on the regenerated creature just like enchantments would remain.

So, what's Krosan Wayfarer supposed to do here?

Haha, well spotted!

Krosan Warchief?
