Wanna do something cool with the 3 silliest (still great) cards ever, Omnibian
, Peer Pressure
, and Spawnbroker
. Also I want to play obscure cards that don't see action. Fun is a bonus :) Rate, comment, please help with ideas.
This deck is about $14 on TCGPlayer, 11/9/12.
Don't forget that using Omnibian will let you:
Steal other creatures using Spawnbroker .
Use Standardize to make everything pumpkin type, then use Omnibian to make other creatures frogs, a creative way to steal creatures when your opponent has more creatures than you. A reverse pyschology look at Peer Pressure . (steal the pumpkins, not the frogs).
Make your opponent's Worldspine Wurm , Ludevic's Test Subject Flip , or Krosan Cloudscraper (etc..) 3/3 so you can block and kill it (does not work on Ageless Entity so toss in a Fate Transfer if that is likely).
I'll let you figure out the rest.
Proof that Omnibian isn't a dumb card or a junk rare.
It's a good start. The main problem I'm seeing is your strategy plays too far into the late-game. You may take some hits early on. Your main combo plays at 6 mana; so does the Fable of Wolf and Owl . The fable should be your way of making Peer Pressure actually effective, especially against other creature-heavy decks. I might suggest a less expensive form of token generation; Scatter the Seeds comes to mind immediately. You probably don't need 3 Xenograft s to pull this off. Also, with Peer Pressure combos, having some cheap bounce (i.e. Vapor Snag ) is never a bad idea. You never know when your opponents may drop some extra beasties at instant speed and ruin your life. Anyway, cool deck.
Weeeee! Yay! Ur...ribbit! This deck is sooo neat. Maybe you could add a Murkfiend Liege to pump up your frog army? It's too bad his actual creature type isn't a frog, he sure looks like one! Hey, I gotta commend you for such a fun idea using cards that don't see much play. I love it when people think away from the mainstream. ;) +1 from a girl who likes frogs, snakes, and insects too!
