Maybe The Gitrog Monster isn’t quite the most obvious Standard card, but that doesn’t mean I’m not going to brew with it.
Now, admittedly, I don’t really know how to build this. What’s the right number of lands? I don’t know. I wouldn’t even know how to play this deck. When should I keep lands in hand? Probably hard to figure out.
The idea is to get play the Toad and draw cards from it. There aren’t too many ways to do it (besides itself), but there are some. Since there aren’t many efficient removal spells that can handle the Toad, this might work out pretty well. The deck does have enough plan B’s to work even if you never draw the Toad, but there’s also ways to find it with Traverse the Ulvenwald or just drawing and scrying.
