Death Link
« on: April 09, 2015, 12:53:26 pm »
Hey there,

I was looking at the card Death Link. I just wanted to get an official ruling on how the card works. If your mage cannot heal (due to finite life or at full health), does that mean you cannot place direct damage. I did a google search and there are two posts that say opposite things. The question is does the "may heal up to 2 damage" on the card mean that you may deal 2 direct damage as well. I think it doesn't deal damage unless you heal.

The amount of damage dealt is equal to the amount actually healed from Death Link's ability. If Death Link's controlling Mage didn't heal (such as because it had Finite Life), no damage is dealt. If the healing effect from Death Link was increased somehow, then the amount of damage dealt would also increase. Death Link's controlling Mage can heal more damage than the enchanted creature's remaining health.

Preventing direct damage from being placed on the enchanted creature will not prevent Death Link's controlling Mage from healing.
