I'm not sure this works under Magic's layer system, since effects that apply abilities come before effects that affect power and toughness... I'm tired, though, and maybe I'm thinking about this the wrong way. I think it doesn't work for the same reason you can't have a card that says "Creatures you control with first strike are red," or "Enchant creature; You control enchanted creature as long as it's green." Both of those require something in an earlier layer to check on something in a later layer, which is what this does, too.

Right, yes. Link's right. If this has a +1/+1 counter on it and an Oakenform, it'll still be giving the abilities to creatures with power 3, not 7. It's the reason that all Alara-block "power 5 or greater" cards (Mosstodon and so on) were activated or triggered rather than static abilities.

This would also work if it were an activated or triggered ability, so you could do, say:

­{1}: Choose reach, trample, lifelink or vigilance. Creatures you control with power equal to ~'s power gain that ability UEOT.
