I know this is sort of covered here:

but wanted to confirm, if an emberspire witch blocks a larger creature with life drain, and\or is killed by a terrible transfer, the player does not gain life, correct?

I've had my Emberspire killed by a Terrible Transfer and no life was gained.

The troop is still alive while damage is being dealt, so it's still in play to stop lifedrain from triggering. The troop doesn't actually go to the graveyard until the combat or spell is resolved, so yeah, it's correct behavior for the Emberspire to stop the opponent from gaining life at that stage.

I just want to add to this by saying that...

If Emberspire witch is killed by a troop with swiftstrike, and you have another troop with lifedrain WITHOUT swiftstrike, you would gain life from that troop

True. The two sets of damage resolution completely resolve separately.
