If you give Triskelion Buy Persist will it always come back since the -1/-1 counter is removed by a +1/+1 counter?

Thanks Mally for answering all my questions its great to have someone to help.

Quoting Pshel:If you give Triskelion Buy Persist will it always come back since the -1/-1 counter is removed by a +1/+1 counter?

It will only come back once unless you can give it persist each time it comes back.

When an object changes zones, the game "loses track" of it, and it becomes a new object with no memory of its previous existence (except for effects that follow it specifically). That is, when Triskelion Buy returns to the battlefield via persist, it will be a new Triskelion Buy without persist, even though it looks like (and is represented by the same physical card as) the old one.
