Attack is how much damage a card can do. It is represented with a number in a card´s lower left zone, over the attack icon.

Application of Attack

A card´s attack is applied by subtracting it over the objective card´s health. However, if the objective card has armor, the armor´s value must be added to the health when dealing damage. Also remember that when a card with both attack and health (unlike spells), both the attacker and the defender cards exchange damage.
