Venomous Not Working As Intended

Playing as Curator in Battlegrounds the Amalgam’s Venomous does not work as intended.
I had reborn, taunt, and divine shield on, the venomous would only activate upon being reborn, i.e. the venomous attribute was ignored until reborn. This lost me 3 matches that I should have easily won with Cultus S’Thara on board too.

I don’t think it’s tied to Reborn. I had a similar problem as Curator, but my Amalgam’s Venomous would only work sporadically, less than half the time. Venomous was the only keyword on the Amalgam, and the enemy minions did not have Divine Shield or anything like that.
