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.

In the Grand Creature Type Update the subtype Toad (Morgue Toad) was incorporated into the Frog class.

Storyline[edit | edit source]

Arcavios[edit | edit source]

Burrogs are frog-folk living on the west coast of Orrithia on Arcavios.[1]

Dominaria[edit | edit source]

Anurids are water-dwelling Frog Beasts, native to Otaria. A famous one was Turg.

Yargle, Glutton of Urborg was "born" when a frog ate a transformed ambitious follower of Belzenlok, whose spirit corrupted it into a hulking monstrosity (that was still a frog).

Innistrad[edit | edit source]

The Gitrog monster is an enormous frog that lives in a lake in the highlands of Nephalia on innistrad.

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.[2]

Mirrodin[edit | edit source]

The Frogmite is one of the few natural enemies of the blinkmoth on Mirrodin.

Ravnica[edit | edit source]

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.
