Scorpion is a mainly black creature type used for cards that depict predatory arthropods with eight legs, a pair of grasping claws and a narrow, segmented tail. The tail is often carried in a characteristic forward curve over the back, ending with a venomous stinger. They live in warmer parts of worlds like Dominaria and Zendikar.
The first creature to bear the type was Pit Scorpion from Legends, which was the first creature to produce poison counters. Other examples include Giant Scorpion which has Deathtouch and Bala Ged Scorpion which destroys a target creature with power 1 or less when it enters the battlefield.
