In a multiplayer game one of my opponents has a felidar sovereign and is at 39 life and I am at 2 life. He attacks me with a 2/2 lifelink creature, but before damage is dealt I concede. Does the lifelink still gain my opponent enough life to win with felidar sovereign at the beginning of his upkeep, thereby letting my other opponent lose the game or do I only lose and do my opponents still need to continue the game to determine who wins?

  • Of course, you could have used lighting bolt on him and rob him of 3 life instead of just 2. – GendoIkari Apr 21 '17 at 15:06

    @GendoIkari Or the creature so you don't die and they don't win (yet) – diego Apr 21 '17 at 15:07
  • @diego I should have chosen something that could only deal damage to myself – Ivar de Bruin Apr 21 '17 at 15:09
  • @IvardeBruin Lava Spike can only target players if you want to change it – diego Apr 21 '17 at 15:11

The lifelinking creature does not deal damage, which means your opponent does not gain life, and the rest of the table will need to keep playing.
