Blitz Hellion

Ball Lightning without the likelihood of going to the graveyard. Not only does it have enough toughness to stand up against Deft Duelist, it also goes back into your library at end of turn instead of into your graveyard. This makes it useless for reanimation strategies, but excellent in situations where you might get milled out.

Constructed- 2.5
Casual- 3.5
Multiplayer- 3
Limited- 3.5

Blitz Hellion

They reprinted Giant Solifuge! Not quite, of course, but this might be the card to put red-green back on the map in competitive Standard constructed. You'll have to be a little more careful than with the Solifuge, of course, because he's rather vulnerable to Path to Exile. This card isn't just for the tournament sharks, either; Pandemonium could always use new friends, and Chord of Calling keeps the hits coming turn after turn.

Constructed: 3/5
Casual: 4/5
Limited: 4/5
Multiplayer: 3/5

Blitz Hellion

Back in the day when mono-red aggro speed decks were shining...there was a 5/1 haste trample for 4 that got a lot of play. That creature hit the yard. This one shuffles back in to come back later. Will the 5cc change make a difference. Well...I don't think so. Expect this to possibly be a surprise hit. A 7/7 trample haste is nothing to laugh at.

Constructed: WOW a 7/7 trampler and haste for only 5 mana, nice. Pair it up with that uncounterable dude in the new intro packs and watch your opponent squirm. Keep those Path to Exiles and Celestial Purges handy.

 

Casual: Red and Green got a new play toy.

 

Multiplayer: It can sure hurt someone who is not ready for it.

 

Limited: Better have a good answer for it. It has a great reusable effect that unless it is removed from the game it has a chance of comming back out of your deck for more fun. This will be a card to watch for in Limited.

 

Overall a great creature for its cost. Red and green have not had a good one in awhile.

 

Constructed: 3

Casual: 4

Multiplayer: 2
