10/4/2004 Paying the cost is optional.
10/4/2004 Paralyze can be cast targeting a creature which is already tapped.
10/4/2004 The creature can only be untapped using Paralyze once per turn.
10/4/2004 Two Paralyzes are not cumulative. Paying either one will untap the creature.
9/16/2007 This is a change from the most recent wording. As was the case in the past, Paralyze itself has the last triggered ability, rather than granting that ability to the enchanted creature.
