Stupid Scorpion-Venom <> “Mac” Gargon: Cost 3:
Whenever Venom enters combat with an opponent or
a character an opponent controls, he gets +1 ATK

On the other hand if you nailed him to the head
of a VS player they would literally say “*%^$ my
head really %^*$ing hurts, you $^*!ing %$^£”.
And that’s basically the difference between the
