Card Text:
At the beginning of your upkeep, create a 2/2 green Wolf creature token.
Tap: Tap all untapped Wolf creatures you control. Each Wolf tapped this way deals damage equal to its power to target creature. That creature deals damage equal to its power divided as its controller chooses among any number of those Wolves.

Mythic Rare
Card Number:
10/1/2009 The Wolves are tapped as part of the activated ability’s effect, not as a cost.
10/1/2009 If the targeted creature is an illegal target by the time the activated ability would resolve, the entire ability is countered. Nothing else happens. (For example, the Wolves aren’t tapped.)
10/1/2009 The Wolves deal their damage first. This may be important if the damage causes the targeted creature’s power to be reduced (if it’s Protean Hydra, for example). However, creatures aren’t destroyed for having been dealt lethal damage until a spell or ability has finished resolving. If the targeted creature is dealt lethal damage by the tapped Wolves, it will still get to deal damage to those Wolves before being destroyed.
10/1/2009 Only a Wolf creature tapped as part of the ability’s effect can be dealt damage by the targeted creature.
10/1/2009 The targeted creature’s controller doesn’t divide that creature’s damage as the ability is activated (since the Wolves that will receive that damage aren’t targeted), so that player does so as the ability resolves. Each Wolf chosen by that player must be dealt at least 1 damage. There is no time to react between the time a Wolf is chosen, the time damage is dealt to it, and the time it’s destroyed for having been dealt lethal damage. If you want to put a regeneration shield on one of those Wolves, or target it with a damage-prevention spell, or anything else, you must do so before the ability resolves (and before you know which Wolves will be chosen and how much damage will be dealt to them).
