Card Text:
Whenever a creature enters the battlefield under your control, you may pay 2Red. If you do, that creature deals damage equal to its power to any target.
Flavor Text:
Where life and force collide.
Card Number:
10/1/2009 You target a permanent or player when the ability triggers. You decide whether or not to pay 2Red as the ability resolves.
10/1/2009 Once you decide to pay 2Red, it's too late for anyone to respond (such as by activating a regeneration ability the targeted creature has).
10/1/2009 If you pay 2Red, the creature that entered the battlefield deals damage equal to its current power to the targeted permanent or player. If it's no longer on the battlefield, its last known existence on the battlefield is checked to determine its power.
10/1/2009 Electropotence is the source of the ability, but the creature is the source of the damage. The ability couldn't target a creature with protection from red, for example. It could target a creature with protection from creatures, but all the damage would be prevented. Since damage is dealt by the creature, lifelink, deathtouch, and wither are taken into account, even if the creature has left the battlefield by the time it deals damage.
