Way too strong. Even if it was {t} and sacrifice a creature, that'd be a legendary rare land (Phyrexian Tower). At common this is absurd.

Also, it should say "a creature" not "target creature" because you can't have targets in costs (the part before the colon on an activated ability).

That's a bit nicer. Unfortunately now it has the loophole that you can activate it even if you have zero creatures out. It'd need something ugly like "Activate this ability only if you control a creature" adding on the end to prevent that. There ought to be a nicer way to phrase that, but I don't think there is.

Why not include the counter as part of the cost?

I think the counter is included as part of the cost. It's before the colon. It's just there's a - rather than a comma.

I see. Somehow I misinterpreted it.
