If I get attacked with a Skullbriar with a bunch of counters on it, or even any creature with a bunch of counters, can I use Vhati il-Dals ability to give it 1 power in order to not get hit for damage? Or would the counters still be there? I played a commander last night where I encountered this situation and the two other players insisted that the counters would still be there and that I would get hit for full damage. Is that how it would work? I would have thought that because I had used the ability after the counters had been gained that the power would just go right down to one.
