Living Inferno

If I equip Living Inferno with Blight Sickle will other creatures shrink before they return damage?

Can this combo kill indestructibles? 
Yes. You perform the actions on an effect in the order they're written. So, Living Inferno will spread out some -1/-1 counters, then those creatures deal (less) damage back to it.

Yes, you can kill indestructibles this way.

For the first question, it's important to note that, since this all happens during the resolution of an ability, creatures given -1/-1 counters will deal damage back even if their toughness is zero (as long as they have more than 0 power).  For example, if you use Living Inferno's ability on a Nova Chaser dealing 8 damage to it, Living Inferno will take (10-8) = 2 damage back, even though the Nova Chaser's toughness is 0.

If I used this combo on my own Stuffy Doll would stuffy doll get off it's damage before it dies?


This is for the win. 
Yes, dealing damage to stuffy doll always causes it to deal damage to the opponent. It doesn't matter if it dies.
