comment Highest possible power of a creature
@Rainbolt I don't know if it needs to be put on hold right away, but I do think it's pretty prone to attracting "here's my favorite combo" answers despite the fact that it didn't explicitly ask for it (implicit questions matter too). That sort of thing tends to happen over time even to questions with a lot fewer possible variations on the answer.

That combo takes three cards: two copies of Enduring Scalelord plus absolutely any card that puts a +1/+1 counter on something. Okay, I guess you need land to play your spells too. But it's just a few cards.

comment Highest possible power of a creature
Generally, there's no shortage of combos that'll let you go infinite, so the answer to a question like this is always going to be "as high as you want." A recent example: two copies of Enduring Scalelord plus anything that puts a +1/+1 counter on something to get the chain started. Or are you asking what the most you can do without an infinite combo is?

comment Can an opponent bolt a mana-generating creature to stop me from generating mana?
Deathrite Shaman would let your non-mana-ability example actually have mana (potentially) produced; in some sense a more direct analogy to the OP's situation.

comment Do I have to “choose” when not targetting?
@Mephy Maybe? Not sure if EDH is meant to be included; it'd just be a placeholder so that if in the future they make a commander that can ping from the command zone (like how Oloro lets you can life) it'll be preventable. Other casual variants might make more sense.

comment Do I have to “choose” when not targetting?
Rule 119.7 mentions what you're allowed to choose as a source, and offers a couple more possibly interesting options besides permanents and spells: "any object referred to by an object on the stack, by a prevention or replacement effect that’s waiting to apply, or by a delayed triggered ability that’s waiting to trigger (even if that object is no longer in the zone it used to be in); or, in certain casual variant games, a face-up card in the command zone."

comment Do I have to “choose” when not targetting?
Also worth emphasizing that the thing you choose doesn't have to be something that'd ever deal damage, so it's easier to avoid being stuck choosing Narset than the OP might think. For example play another creature pre-combat that won't be able to attack and choose it, or play a red or black spell that doesn't deal damage (even an instant in response to Narset's trigger!) and choose it. The Oracle text for Penance makes this clear, since it says "the next time...would deal damage, prevent that damage" rather than just "prevent all damage from...".

comment Magic the gathering cards
By the way, I proposed one of those previous questions as a duplicate since it sounds like you're asking roughly the same thing, but if there's something else you want to know that wasn't covered already, please feel free to edit your question or post a new one to be more specific!

Previous questions about this: boardgames.stackexchange.com/q/27381/409 boardgames.stackexchange.com/q/5458/409 boardgames.stackexchange.com/q/3161/409 The good news is that if they're more than 18 years old they could well be cards that are older, harder to find, and more valuable. Sounds like they might be in good condition too.

comment MTG: Is there a lower-limit for life total?
Since it was just additions, I figured I'd just edit rather than telling you what I thought you should add; feel free to mess with it if you don't like it.

comment MTG: Is there a lower-limit for life total?
I'm all for answers that are correct in every detail when possible, so yes, it's good to avoid implying that you can't go negative if you'd lose. That said, if you look at the body of the question it's pretty clearly asking about a situation that doesn't make much sense if you've lost: going negative, then coming back up.

comment MTG: Is there a lower-limit for life total?
A much more direct example would be Phyrexian Unlife‌​, which on the card actually says "having 0 or less life", and the rulings also describe falling below zero.
