Frog is a creature type used for cards that depict tailless, stout-bodied amphibians, including the smooth, moist-skinned frog species that live in a damp or semi-aquatic habitat and the warty, drier-skinned toad species that are mostly terrestrial as adults. They appear in blue, black and green. The first creature to bear the type was Whiptongue Frog in Exodus, though Chub Toad from Ice Age was issued errata to become a frog as well.

Ixalan[edit | edit source]
Frogs are more commonly heard than seen in Ixalan, joining their voices to the vivid soundscape of the jungle. They range from tiny poisonous tree frogs found in the branches of tall trees to huge horned frogs that lurk in marshy areas.

Frogs are a favorite experimental resource for the Simic Combine. The Crocanura is a mutant Crocodile Frog; the Species Gorger another Frog Beast. Creatures like the Omnibian instead transform their surroundings into frogs. The Trollbred Guardian demonstrates biological fusion into partially-sapient beings.

- Frogmite is an Artifact Frog.
- Anurid Brushhopper is the only -aligned frog.
- Polymorphist's Jest and Turn to Frog turn creatures into 1/1 blue Frogs until end of turn. A version of Unstable 's Very Cryptic Command also has this ability. Frogify does it permanently.
