Category for Poisonous

Poisonous is a keyword ability.


It is a creature ability, similar to Infect.

When a Creature with Poisonous deals combat damage to a player, that player receives poison counters.

A creature with poison 1 will give the player one poison counter if it deals damage to a player. This effect increases with each number: A creature with poison 2 gives 2 poison counters when dealt damage to a player, etc.

When a player has 10 poison counters, they lose the game, as stated by the Game Rules.
