The first ability applies only if your life total is being reduced by damage. Other effects or costs (such as "lose 1 life" or "pay 1 life") can reduce your life total below 1 as normal.
9/25/2006
If an effect asks you to pay life, you can't pay more life than you have.
9/25/2006
The last sentence is not a prevention effect. It stops unpreventable damage from reducing your life total below 1.
9/25/2006
The ability doesn't change how much damage is dealt; it just changes how much life that damage makes you lose. An effect such as Spirit Link will see the full amount of damage being dealt.
9/25/2006
Thief won't prevent you from losing the game if your life total is 0 or less or some other effect causes you to lose the game.
