I always thought making a deck using whatever their strategy against them would be awesome, much more so throwing in another 6 silences (maybe replace 4 of the lightnings with it, dunno)... well anyways, looked at the cards more closely, upgraded doesn't really do much for the forest scorpion (+1 damage), death stalker gets +2 (survivability, a bit) and same thing with the dune scorpion... using a deck made of  :death based around deadly scorpions with your mark being death wouldn't hurt much (add a few  :death pendulums as well to help with those first 3 or 4, depending on whether the nightfall was upgraded to eclipse or not... you could also expand it to a sort of rainbow deck doing the same thing (momentums, quintesses, silences, mitosis, dat stuff), and the dune scorpion seriously just needs  :light pendulums with time as its mark and you do alot of damage... well, that idea would probably need silences in the beginning to truly hurt your opponent... even if it is supposed to be a support one, not a card to base a deck around, its still kinda... meh. Also, the +1 damage to the  :life scorpion, I don't see it doing quite alot aside from getting you over unupgraded shields, so yeah.... meh. MAYBE if you could use mitosis on it and the scorpion would still have its poison effect (since it removes that), I think that would be really kewl and not make it seem like something to be overlooked :3

First, the thread needs proper formatting.

As for buffing the card, I agree. I don't think decreasing its cost to 2 would make it much better overall. Same price as frog, less damage, less durability, still worse adrenaline fodder, but it would be a start.

Yes! Buff Forest Scorpion, please! Look at War, for example. It is not like Forest Scorpion can be used 6 times in a deck and win the game! ::)
Let alone using Forest Scorpion as a hard-counter, especially against teams with strong defence, like Team :aether and Team :light! :-\

(the examples used above are completely co-incidental and have absolutely no relation to real-life events) :P

Forest Scorpion doesn't need a buff IMO.
Forest Scorpion is basically a creature that was made with the intention of poisoning on each attack. Seeing as it has done this well, it doesn't need a buff.
Having one attack on a poisonous creature is enough. Which basically means instant poison whenever you summon it.
If I had to buff anything, I would buff the HP. It's kinda weak.

The problem with that is that they are blocked by just about every common shield. Which renders them useless outside of being buffed. They aren't really good enough to warrant only 1 attack and be 3 cost.

yeah, I'm not good at formatting if you couldn't tell  :P that pretty much sums up my thoughts, sooooo yeah, easily blocked strategy... one possible buff I thought about was letting the scorpion keep the poison with the mitosis... even so, it can still be snuffed out by almost any shield, like deathreign said. also, having one attack on a poisonous creature is enough for instant poison? yeah, tell that to the person rushing with 6 death stalkers and a few eclipses ;P also, personally, on a different note, I think it would be nice if the cure was toned down to immediately remove 6 poison upon playing, and then 6 for each turn, until its removed and then add the +2 hp. sure, that wouldn't make a HUGE difference, but for the person completely into the poison routine, a couple well timed purifies could ruin it (although thats a completely different note from what the forest scorpion should receive as a buff, unless someone comes up with a concrete idea why not....)
oh, right...
