What would you gain from multiple trample effects?

Trample says once you have assigned enough damage to kill all defending creatures you may assign the rest to defending player. If you have 2 tramples, you would still have the same total power, which means the same total damage, which means the same total amount to spill over.

Sir_dwar - what you call proto-lifelink (Whenver this creature deals damage, gain that much life) is a TRIGGERED ability, not activated. Although in the case of Genju of the Fields, its activated ability grants a triggered ability.

Activated - has a colon separating cost and effect, like "Tap: deals 1 damage to target creature or player."
Triggered - Starts with "When", "Whenever", or "At" - "when this dies, do X" "whenever you play a white spell, do Y." "At the beginning of your upkeep, Z"
Static/replacement - always on, or replace specific events - "damage done by this creature cause you to gain that much life" "if you would take damage, take 1 less instead" "all goblins get +1/+1 and mountainwalk"

No, because the thing is, Genju of the fields doesn't have lifelink. There is actually a (quite technical, relying on semantics) reason that proto-lifelink stacks but lifelink doesn't. Apparently, proto-lifelink is an activated ability, which can stack, while modern lifelink, and trample, are static abilities, witch don't stack.

So, long story short, Trample doesn't stack, Lifelink doesn't stack, but pseudo-lifelink does. Yes, my head hurts as well.

Can you activate the ability numersous times therefore multiplying the Trample effect? This is possible with Genju of the Fields but with Lifelink.

@ sir_dwar, Thanks for the explanation man.
@ Kurhan, I wasn't sure but I was just wondering the technicalities and things of this game... ya know.

actually, noobmaster911, it's nothing like that.
It comes into play tapped, so you can't block with it the turn you play it.
It ruins your tempo because you can't play another land that turn.
You have to tap it to attack, so it's really {2G}, not {1G}, because you could have tapped it for mana otherwise.
Finally, you have to pay that cost everytime it becomes a creature.
On the plus side, however, it can't be killed by "destroy target creature" effects untill it's a creature, so, you can play wrath of god and then attack with no blockers.
So yes, you really are a noobmaster.
