Magic: the Gathering players around the world can rejoice (or cringe) with the long awaited return of poison in the form of a new Scars of Mirrodin keyword: Infect!
Infect (This creature deals damage in the form of -1/-1 counters and to players in the form of poison counters.)
To date there have only been ten Magic: the Gathering cards that have referenced poison (check them out in the attached slide show to the right).
How many creatures will be printed in Scars of Mirrodin with Infect? If looking at recent keywords like Landfall is a good frame of reference, we can expect the number of Magic: the Gathering cards that reference poison to double.
