It's a base value, similarly to Crucible of Fire. No counters are put on your chosen creatures. Rather, you put a counter on Door of Destinies, then DoD grants +1/+1 to each creature you control of the chosen type, as an on-going effect, based on the number of counters DoD has.

A creature's actual P/T is equal to its base P/T plus any modifiers. Door of Destinies is what is called an "anthem" effect. Glorious Anthem is the best example. It does what it says -- it gives them +1/+1 for each charge counter. 'Until end of turn' is something tacked on to make it temporary.

What you're likely missing is experience. That is a fairly common effect. Many sets have at least one card that does that. There are Anthems, Lords(like Lord of Atlantis) printed all the time. Granted, they're not used often -- they're a pretty narrow effect that only works in some decks -- but they exist in droves.

So long as Door of Destinies is on the field, all associated creatures of the correct type will get x +1/+1 counters, where x is the number of charges on the door. The counters are conditional to the continued presence of the door.

So I'm not sure why Door of Destinies doesn't specify ''add +1/+1 COUNTER for each charge counter on Door... Unless it a base value boost until end of turn. The card ruling : If you cast a creature spell of the chosen type, Door of Destinies will get a charge counter before the creature enters the battlefield. The creature will enter the battlefield with the additional boost to its power and toughness. Is the so called boost a +1/+1 counter or a +1/+1 until end of turn. I think specifying it on the card would lead to less questionning. Am I missing something obvious? Also is this the right place to ask for cards specifications?

To add on, tribal cards (like Tarfire if you named goblins) will trigger to put a counter on Door of Destinies.

No, sorry. They are not the same.

In order for Door of Destinies to be triggered, you must specifically "cast" a spell of the chosen type. The goblin tokens generated by Krenko are not "cast," they only ETB. You could actually still trigger Door of Destinies by casting a goblin that never actually enters the battlefield, like say if someone plays Counterspell. You still did cast the card, so the Door still triggers.

Effects that trigger solely by something "entering the battlefield" are different, and would trigger any time the required object ETBs, even if it wasn't actually cast by a player.

Door of Destinies is still a good card for a Krenko deck though, at least imho.

So i have Door of Destinies and I want to know if it can also be worded as "whenever a creature of the chosen type enters the battlefield". The reason being is that if this is how its is now worded, my Krenko, Mob Boss edh get a huge power boost.

Great build. Always nice to see the goat deck show up at FNM. Maybe Door of Destinies could find a place here?
