Lifelink: dealing greater damage than the blocker's/target's toughness
Asked by Annro 6 years ago
We then proceeded to the declare attackers step. The Ascendancy made his Grand Master a 3/3 lifelinker, so I chump blocked with a 1/1 monk that I got from my Monastery Mentor earlier... and he gained 3 life, even though my blocker only had 1 health.
Was he right? He said he saw one of the guys do it in one of the pro tours... but the people I've played with only gained life equal to the toughness of the creature they killed.
He was right. Sources deal all of their damage regardless of whether or not the life of the player or toughness of the creature is lower.
Stoke the Flames deals 4 damage. It deals 4 to a 1/1 it deals 4 to a 10/10.

Relatedly, players can have negative life totals and creatures can have negative P/T. The game does track stats past zero.
