Personally, I would have preferred "As Dark Fleshform enters the battlefield, destroy target creature. Dark Fleshform enters the battlefield with a number of +1/+1 counters equal to the destroyed creature's toughness."

Eww. That'd be horrible. It can't target, because it's an "as" ability which is a replacement effect. It'd be uncounterable, unrespondable-to destruction, and very out-of-model too. Far cleaner as a sorcery saying "Destroy target creature. Put an X/X black Elemental creature token OTB, where X is that creature's toughness."

Concurred. You're definatly right about targetting and 'as'. I was down that path since Jack V started us on it. Also, as I read this card again, I see that it says to put -1/-1 counters on 'any number of creatures target player controls'. What the?!

Hm, yeah, "target player" should read "a player of your choice".
