Can be fun in a prowl-rogue deck, Frogtosser reduces the prowl costs as well :)

sweet jesus. Paired with the prowl ability, this is mind-boggling. haste means better chance of punching through before blockers are ready, then playing a prowl spell for 1 less than it's already reduced prowl cost!!

Example: turn 1 swamp + dark ritual + Frogtosser Banneret + Thoughtseize/Duress/Inquisition of Kozilek etc.
turn 2 swamp + attack + Earwig Squad or any 2 cards that prowl for 1B.

or turn 3 Frogtosser + attack + dark ritual + any 2 black prowl spells, on top of turn 1 and 2 rogues that might be on the board.

I'm sick of people posting their ideal first 1-3 turn set-ups, because they almost always start with "Turn 1: Swamp, Dark Ritual, ..." UGH. We get it. Dark Ritual is the ultimate first turn drop because it gives you 3 freaking mana. Obviously that would be ideal. I'm starting to become more annoyed by these comments than the Progenitus craze by mind-blown newbies and Timmy players. What has the world come to!!!! *mind-implosion*

beats goblin warchief in almost every way in a black-red gob deck
2 mana for a 1/1 instead of 3 mana for a 2/2
only bad thing is that it doesnt give haste, but you have chieftains for that

Thank god this isn't red. Goblins just don't need that. Oh god.

The great thing about this card is not only that it reduces the Prowl costs, but also that it can attack immediately to enable Prowl costs the same turn you play him!

When you've actually played this in a Prowl deck, you find out how good it is. These are all the awesome cards you can play on turn one with a Swamp, Dark Ritual, and this: Oona's Blackguard, Noggin Whack, Morsel Theft, Stinkdrinker Bandit, Earwig Squad, Auntie's Snitch, Cloak and Dagger, Weirding Shaman, and Warren Weirding. Or you could play another of these!

Stinkdrinker Bandit is probably my fave, though. If they still fail to muster any blockers for the next turn, that's seven to the face, on the second turn. If you went first, it's entirely possible they won't have any blockers.

I have no idea how anyone can complain at this card. 2 cmc for a 1/1 haste is pretty much 1/1 for 1. He is splashable in a goblin relevant color and can really effect the game. Honestly, the rogue buff is just icing on the cake.

I used to run this guy in a monoblack rogue deck. However I came across a few issues that spurred me to remove him.

First: he occupies the same 2 CMC slot that makes up three fourths of my deck and I would find myself casting an evasive prowl enabler instead of him more often than not.

Second: because most of my deck is so cheap, his ability serves only to help me overextend. Anything that doesn't cost 2 prowls for 2 (except Earwig Squad) and that's cheap enough for me.

Third: beyond his cost reducing ability, he provided nothing else but a non-evasive 1/1 body for 2.
Haste gave only a small window for him to be a viable attacker and I'd lose the cost reduction if I used him as a blocker so what's the point?

Frogtosser, I love you bro but you're just not for me.

You guys have inspired me to make a great legacy deck with this card. Just check out this play!

Turn one: Gemstone Cavern (put into play at the beginning of the game), Swamp lotus petal (hand size four). Black lotus for blue and triple ancestral recall (hand size nine) then play a mox jet. Crack the petal and use the Jet to summon this guy. (hand size seven). Now, use the gemstone cavern for red, casting Infernal Plunge on this guy (see! He is vital!). Use the red mana for Manamorphose into Flash to put out Protein Hulk. Let it die and find two Myr Galvanizers. (Hand size five, 1 R floating). Use the red for Rite of Flame, this for another Manamorphose. Use this to flash out another Protein Hulk... (see all)
