Deck Description

Frogs are awesome. So why not frog tribal?

How to Play

Use control spells like Fog, Dissipate, and Negate to control your enemy while you get your frogs out.

Frog Tongue is for those pesky flying and a free card.

Turn to Frog, Omniphobian, or Polymorphist's Jest, can all be used to combo and steal your opponents creatures with Peer Pressure.

Use Plaxcaster Frogling to put counters on your other frogs. Multiple Omniphobian's with +1/+1 counters can be useful for one of it to use its tap ability.

Yeah, if I was going to use this I would probably put some changelings instead of it.

It is a frog actually. Its one of the old cards that wizard has messed with to make it fit with established tribes

It is a Frog.
Toads become Frogs in Magic the Gathering world in 2007.
Sorta weak of them since Toads and Frogs ARE NOT the same species.
Go figure.

A budget deck with frogs and control cannot be bad.

I like to how you kept it budget at EXACTLY $25! That is awesome and the deck is super cool too. Great job with this one.

The concept is good but against aggro and token midrange peer pressure plus jest is a nonbo? This deck seems so fun i wish it was viable in my meta. .

I find the lack of Brainstorm to be a great injustice even for a casual legacy deck.

While brainstorm is an effective card, I just find it difficult to fit it in a $25 budget with the way the deck is right now.

Seems you would need more creatures and a little less counters. Maybe add Crocanura, frog with reach and evolve seems to be a nice fit. Also Chub Toad could be fun to block with, a 3/3 toad for 3 not bad at all. How about a few species gorger for the big finish if you don't get your peer pressure? Hall of Triumph or obelisk of urd could help pump all your frogs.

For it to be a tribal deck doesn't it need to have 1/3rd of the deck as the same creature type? Otherwise nice deck!

To answer that question....yes and no.

Lots of people argue over what is a Tribal Deck.

Example: I have a Frog Tribal deck. In the deck I have 4 Llanowar Elves for mana ramp. Is this deck a true Tribal deck?

Example 2: I have a Frog Tribal deck. In the deck I only have 8 Frogs. Is this deck a true Tribal deck?

Example 3. I have a Frog Tribal deck. In the deck is 20 Frogs. In this deck I do not run a single Tribal Sorcery or Tribal Instant card. Is this deck a true Tribal deck?

In my humble opinion a Tribal deck is a deck that: Is designed to win by a certain/central type of creature.

Meaning: If you have a Frog Tribal deck that wins by using frogs, then it is a true Frog Tribal deck. If the deck uses the 4 Llanowar Elves, so what, because the Elves aren't winning you the game. They just provide mana ramp. If the deck only has 8 Frogs, so what, if you can use those 8 frogs to win.

But some purist see it different.
They love to see 16+ Frogs, no Elves (or any other type of creature besides Frogs), and want to see Tribal Sorcery and Tribal Instant cards.

So...in short, it is subjective.

I see what your saying but Wizards provide a clear definition as to what constitutes a tribal deck, stated on their website and everything!! 1/3rd of all the cards must be of the same creature type, and no sideboard allowed.

Oh, snap. Good job on that research Sohlon! +1 Reputation.
Interesting with no sideboard rule...especially for tourneys.
Do they state that Tribal decks must have Tribal Instant or Sorcery cards?
Looks like that should be one of the rules...if they are going to be so technical with the constitution of the deck. But then again, they phased on Tribal Spells and may not go back to them. There are only 50 or so of them.

Yeah no sideboard is a bit of a hamstring but I guess its to try and push it as more of a casual format although I know there are a fair few tribal tourneys at least where I'm from. There is no mention of tribal spells in the rules, literally just the 1/3rd rule and the no sideboard thing.

Made a couple changes based on suggestions... Added Spore Frog, Obelisk of Urd, and Species Gorger. Removed Polymorph's Rush, 1 Polymorphous Jest, and a couple counterspells

I've considered making a Frog deck for a while but really wanted for it to be Modern as no one I know plays Legacy. Still, this is an awesome idea for a deck and I'll certainly be making note of it!

I know exactly what you mean. My group of friends all play modern, but I'm also looking for people on legacy at FNM (when I go).

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles beat up Frogs.

http://www.mtgvault.com/jessie/decks/mutant-ninja-turtle-in-magic/

1st. Master Biomancer (turns creatures into mutants when they come into play)
2nd. Horned Turtle (now a mutated turtle)
3rd. Sakashima's Student (clones the mutant turtle and turns him into a Ninja).

3/6 Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle for the Win!!!
Fly Storm Crows and run Frogs!!!

Eh that's an alright replacement for Obelisk of Urd, but it puts the deck over the budget by about $4.

No that would be a bad idea because I use Peer Pressure to steal the creatures that I turn into frogs. Stealing a couple big creatures can really win games. If Peer Pressure is not available. I can always block and kill them as they are weak frogs.

Instead of Turn to Frog, I would use Polymorphist's Jest. It's basically Turn to Frog except all of your opponent's creatures turn to frogs instead of one.
