Gatherer Card Rulings?, Legality?

  • 10/4/2004: The sacrifices are simultaneous, not one at a time.
  • 10/4/2004: Phasing in does not trigger "enters the battlefield" abilities, so you don't have to sacrifice again if it phases in.
  • 7/15/2007: Reverted to its original wording, this now has an enters-the-battlefield triggered ability. During resolution of the triggered ability, you choose one option or the other.
  • 7/15/2007: If the Dreadnought is no longer on the battlefield when the triggered ability resolves, you may still choose either option.
  • 4/15/2013: If you are unable to sacrifice 12 power worth of creatures, then you cannot choose that option; in that case, you must sacrifice Phyrexian Dreadnought.
