Once again, does Tatterkite's ability apply to counters already in place on it?
It is obvious that it prevents the act of placing/putting a counter on it, but what about pre-existing counters?
say from a Vesuvan Shapeshifter with counters who copies a Tatterkite?
the counters in this case are put on that permanent after it's in play (although the ability isn't there yet) so the FAQ seems to indicate that it would apply to counters on the permanent once the ability is copied.
