A dreadnought originally is a type of battleship armed with heavy-caliber guns in turrets. The term is also used to describe something that is among the largest or most powerful of its kind, which definitely suits a Phyrexian 12/12 artifact creature with trample.
Trivia[edit | edit source]
- Originally subtype-less, the subtype Dreadnought was especially created for this card in the Grand Creature Type Update.
- Mark Rosewater believes that the people who designed Consulate Dreadnought did it in reference of Phyrexian Dreadnought.
