Let's say, in a multiplayer late-game (3+ players) I want to cast/activate anything during another players turn. Everyone is rather low on life, and in response to my spells/abilities on the stack another player reduces the life of the player whose turn it currently is to 0 or below, because of which he loses the game.

It is obvious, that anything that player controls/owns is taken from the stack and the battlefield and his turn ends immediately. But what happens to my stuff on the stack? Does it fizzle or still resolve?

    @Soulus101 Related, but not a dupe. That answer doesn't mention what happens to the current turn.

  • It does point to 800.4 as the relevant rules section. But fair enough.

    Since that is sort of a canonical Q&A, you could add that information to the answer, and/or this scenario to the question.

    I've voted to reopen because I can't find where this information is present in the marked duplicate. I also don't think we're doing anyone a favor by having one giant mega-answer about all the possible distinct situations that can occur on a player leaving the game. This question's small and distinct, so I'd prefer leaving this question open to adding this into that mega-answer. Commented Jan 28, 2019 at 14:04

No, the turn continues as normal, without that player.

800.4i If a player leaves the game during their turn, that turn continues to its completion without an active player. If the active player would receive priority, instead the next player in turn order receives priority, or the top object on the stack resolves, or the phase or step ends, whichever is appropriate.
