If you’ve played NFL Blitz in your tender childhood years, then you know what it’s like to lay the smack down with some of the most punishing tackles and flagrant late hits the gridiron has ever seen. My favorite defensive scheme was “Suicide Blitz” which was an all out attack on the quarterback. You either get the sack for a loss of yards or they most likely score or get a huge gain that play. Suicide blitzing was fun and created a lot of turnovers – it put the pressure on them to make a good counter play. A classic high risk, high reward scheme.
Standard Pauper’s Izzet Blitz seeks to accomplish a similar task – to put the opponent on the defensive if possible and bring the beats! Swarm them so hard they F6 on accident through their own turn, search for the wrong land with Evolving Wilds, and target the wrong creature with a spell meant for their hero! OK that’s not exactly plausible, but that intensity is what this deck is trying to harness!

I hope you’re looking forward to brewing with Dragons of Tarkir in the mix as much as me! Thanks for watching 😀
