Suppose I have 5 life and a 6/6 blocker with lifelink. My opponent attacks with two 5/5 attackers. I block one and the other one hits me for 5. Would I lose or would the lifelink save me? Thanks check out my blog at http://jeffmadorma.blogspot.com/ (non-MTG)

Lifelink is a static ability. Therefore, the lifegain occurs before state-based actions (a factor that determines an immediate result if certain events occur) are checked. Once combat damage has been dealt, you will survive with 6 life.edited by TwoStars on 8/12/2012
