: Living Inferno deals damage equal to its power divided as you choose among any number of target creatures. Each of those creatures deals damage equal to its power to Living Inferno.
2/1/2006 You divide the damage among the target creatures as you activate Living Inferno’s ability. Each target must be assigned at least 1 damage.
2/1/2006 The amount of damage Living Inferno will deal is locked in as you activate its ability, since you’re dividing damage. If Living Inferno’s power changes after its ability is activated but before it resolves (via Giant Growth, for example), the amount of damage Living Inferno deals won’t change. The same is *not* true for the amount of damage dealt to Living Inferno by the other creatures, which is determined when the ability resolves.
