  • If some of the targets become illegal for Ravenous Gigantotherium’s ability, the original division of damage still applies, but the damage that would have been dealt to illegal targets isn’t dealt at all. (2020-04-17)
  • The value of X is locked in as you divide the damage while putting Ravenous Gigantotherium’s ability onto the stack. Changing Ravenous Gigantotherium’s power after that time won’t change how much damage is dealt. (2020-04-17)

  • The creatures targeted by Ravenous Gigantotherium’s ability deal damage back to Ravenous Gigantotherium before dying if they’re dealt lethal damage. (2020-04-17)
