Duskmantle guildmage ability?

Hi there. I have a question concerning a card from GateCrash called the duskmantle guildmage.
During my opponent's turn, he had already discarded PLENTY of cards into the graveyard.
So my question is, if I pay for the guildmage's first ability, which states: "Whenever a card is put into an opponent's graveyard from anywhere this turn, that player loses 1 life." does he lose 1 life for every card discarded before i  paid the effect, or only from the point when i paid the cost and onward?

Thanks 
only those after the ability resolved
and after that turn it is gone again

It only triggers for cards that enter the graveyard after the Guildmage's ability has resolved.

No, it will not trigger from cards that were put in before you activated the ability.
