Today’s card is a real killer (literally). With
this card you have the potential to clear out
the entire field… Just be careful when you cast
it because Blizzard of Spears does bite back.
Let’s take a look.
Blizzard of Spears
Destroy all creatures that have power 4000
Blizzard of Spears seems pretty well priced at 6
mana. When you think about it, Apocalypse Vise
will cost 1 additional mana and Searing Wave
will cost 1 mana less. This card fits snuggly
right in between. Just like Apocalypse Vise and
Searing Wave, Blizzard of Spears gives you the
opportunity to destroy a large number of
creatures. As a matter of fact, you can destroy
all creatures with 4000 power or less! This is
amazing, right? Well just consider the fact
that you’ll be killing your own creatures as
well. This is the reason why very few people
use Blizzard of Spears. The consequences are
difficult to withstand, which is why only the
true masters can use it without suffering heavy
Despite the drawbacks, this card shines in the
right deck. For example, low creature control
decks can completely abuse this card. Duelists
who use this type of strategy pretty much keep
zero creatures in the battle zone for the
majority of the game. Blizzard of Spears is
perfect with this style of play because you can
clear out the entire battle zone while not
having to worry about its consequences. Just
think; all of this destruction is being caused
by just one card.
Another obvious way to use this card is for
Petrova Slaying. Out of all the fire
destruction spells, Blizzard of Spears is the
only card that can get the job done. It’s also
perfect when chaining combos. Just imagine
purposely destroying your creatures and
activating their abilities (Jil Warka, Shaman
Broccoli, Propeller Mutant, Aqua Soldier,
etc.). In one shot you’ll be activating your
own abilities while eliminating your opponent’s
creatures. On top of that, the end result of
such a large combo is typically the final blow
(or close to it).
Another way to take out multiple threats with
just one card.
You could end up destroying your side of the
battle zone needlessly.
If you run a swarm deck then do your best to
stay away from this card.
4/5 – Blizzard of Spears is near broken when
used properly. However, it has a major
drawback, which could cost you the game. The
Fire Civilization has a good variety of
multi-destruction so make sure you’ve made the
4/5 – A card like this will not give you the win
but it’ll pretty much reset the field when used
in limited. Granted you will not get anywhere
after casting it, but you’ll be able to take
down a wall of blockers or a swarm of creatures.
