When dealing poison counters with a creature with Infect, are poison counters dealt 1 per amount of power (a 2/3 would deal 2 poison counters) or 1 per attack?
I am Blue/White
1 per damage.
119.3a Damage dealt to a player by a source without infect causes that player to lose that much life.

119.3b Damage dealt to a player by a source with infect causes that player to get that many poison counters.

They get poison counters equal to the damage dealt. If a 2/3 hits them, they will get 2 counters.

Please autocard: [c]Shard Phoenix[/c] = Shard Phoenix.

when a creature with infect deals damage to a player that player gets that many poison counters instead of lifeloss

similarly when a creature with infect deals damage to another creature it gets that many -1/-1 counters instead of damage being marked on it

dealing damage to a planeswalker is unchanged

The player gets one poison counter for each 1 damage dealt. A 2/3 creature deals 2 damage, so the player gets two poison counters.
Great! Thank you all!

It really is the same as "regular" non infect creatures: when THOSE deal damage to a player, the player lose that many life.
