For example lycan. His summoned wolves attack a target with active blademail, Who will have the impact of the return damage, Lycan or the wolves?

The wolves most likely. Blademail returns damage to an attacking unit and summoned units/illusions are considered separate entities from their summoner (unless specified otherwise in some future skill).


Be aware that wards placed by Rhasta's ult or Venomancer's ability will return the damage to the summoner instead of the wards. Killing them this way is possible, even at a great distance (this worked in DotA, not sure about DotA 2)
