Okay so I have a balefire dragon. It's a 6/6 flying and it's ability I whenever I deal damage to a target player with it it deals equal damage to all of that players creatures.
My question is if I put my lifelink card on balefire dragon and it deals 6 to the player and all of his or hers creatures do I gain 6 for the damage to the player and all the creatures it its too? Or just the player??

Well, firstly, welcome to the forums.

Secondly, this is the general gaming forums for all board games here on BGG. You're probably looking for the MtG subforum.

Thirdly, yes, with lifelink, you will gain life equal to all of the damage that Balefire Dragon does. Because the ability states that "Balefire Dragon" deals the damage, you will gain life from damage done this way. So, you'll gain 6 life immediately when combat damage is dealt. Then, once the trigger resolves in the "End Combat" step (I believe), you'll gain 6 for each creature your opponents control, barring any creatures with protection from Red or Dragons, and any creatures that prevent damage in other ways.

Thanks you a lot. And I'm sorry. This was my first forum ever. But thank you for clearing that up.

Hi Todd,

welcome to BGG!

Questions on specific games are best asked in that game's forum.
I've looked up Balefire Dragon and it seems to be from Magic: The Gathering, so the correct forum would be http://www.boardgamegeek.com/forums/thing/463/magic-the-gath...

I've suggested your thread to be moved by an admin so that more Magic players will see your question and hopefully be able to answer it.

Edit: Well, Andrew beat me by three seconds. Damn, I'm slow today!

You gain life for all the damage done, so if, for example, you have 5 1/1 humans and I cast Moment of Heroism on my Balefire Dragon making it an 8/8 lifelinker and I hit you with it, it will deal 8 damage to you, and I will gain 6*8 = 48 life.

Edit: Oops, someone did answer! I even checked!
