T, Destroy an ally in your party Draw a card.

Well, welcome back everyone to another week of COTD reviews, and today we are going to look at an Ally for the Alliance, but not a very good one.
Bizzik ratings aren’t bad, but nothing special. It may survive 1 attack and do some damage in return, but you’ll need better Allies to win a game.
It’s effect could work in a milling kind of deck, but I wouldn’t recommend it, because there are better cards to draw cards, and then you don’t have to destroy your allies.

Sealed: 3/5
Constructed: 2/5
Casual: 3/5

Turn, destroy an ally in your party Draw a card.
Att ( 2 ) HP ( 4 )

OK lets get things sorted out I have a HUGE bias to this card, ever since I first saw him he was the key to true card drawing greatness in this game and I really don’t think anyone else saw it because I just don’t see him in many peoples decks. Ok let’s take a look at this alliance ally and see how he breaks down, 4 cost is a little high for a 2/4 but I don’t put this guy into play so he can start dealing the pain, he is out there as a tactical piece.

It’s all in his ability really and you know what it looks bad the first like 10 times you look at it but on that 11th time you take a look and wow its like opening a treasure chest. OK now lets look at what he is good for because I’m sure a lot of you are thinking that pitching a guy in play for a card in hand is a bad trade but who ever said you had to discard a ally card to get the card draw out of this guy =)… There are a bunch of our little token friends out there already and many more to come in the next set and yah alliance is going to become a card drawing machine I’m thinking, more so than it is now. Just think you pay 6 to get 3 yeti tokens and lets say they all hit for their 1 on the next turn but your opponent chooses to pop one and guess what you turn Bizzik to draw a card as a response to him targeting your token. ALLIES WILL DIE, it’s a fact of life in this game but its better to get something at their deathbed than just letting them die all together, and oh wait here is the kicker, someone tries to vanquish Bizzik and in response you pop him to draw a card LOL. I have been in control of the board and Bizzik sits there popping tokens and Parvinks, and drawing cards every turn.

Sealed (4): Awesome anything with 4 hp in sealed is great and with his game text he is a solid addition to any alliance deck.
Constructed (5): I have 3 in my warlock control deck and he is great in there, Bizzik I think can find a home in any control style deck, he isn’t much good in rush but a great ally in control
Casual (5): This card really dose not hurt casual play at all… if he was a 4/4 maybe but his game text is good enough for constructed and fun enough for casual play.
Raid (4): good enough to have a place in a control deck and small enough so that he dose not warrant destruction in the eyes of Onyxia. Like I said if Onyxia goes to kill him pop him to draw a card, at absolute worst you made Onyxia waste a destruction card on a tactical ally instead of a more needed ally who you might have drawn into your hand.
Lazy Peon (4): You lose some of the awesome ways to produce tokens in this format but that’s ok Bizzik still has a place in this format because vanquish and other removal is present. Between this and the Onyxia backpack losing stuff is not so bad because you at least get to draw cards.

Ca$hflow Monday:
Bizzik Sparkcog: (Alliance Ally)
Pay 2 for a 2 atk 4 health
Ability:, Destroy an ally in your party Draw a card.
 
Depending on the type of deck you play, this card could be amazing. This card would absolutely suck in my paladin deck because I only play 4 Parvink's and no other allies, therefore his ability would hurt me if I were to play it. Also at 4 to bring out, there are definitely better allies (like Moira Darkheart, Leeroy Jenkins, Parvink only costs 3) that you could play to get more bang for your buck.
 
But, on the flipside of that, if you are playing a deck that is ally heavy then this card gives you decent draw power. You just have to make sure that you have alot of allies that youre willing to sacrifice.
 
At the end of the day, play 4 Parvink's in your deck and you'll be good and forget about Bizzik.
 
Sealed: 2.5/5, if you get nothing else Bizzik could work a little magic for you
 
Constructed: 1/5, why would you want to play this? Like i said, play Parvink
 
Casual: 1/5, he has cool artwork, so i guess you could use him for that
 
Raid: 1/5, Bizzik will crush your chances of not getting crushed by Onyxia.

mondays are lame and so is this card....Bizzik Sparkcog....pay 4 for a 2/4 that has an ability to tap and kill one of your own allies to draw a card ....this is lame because you have to tap a monster and kill a monster just to draw 1 card....2 negatives for one positive...lame just complete YFAY quest and draw a card.

Sealed: 2/5

Constructed: 1.5/5

Casual: 2.5/5 (priest deck, mind control)

Raid:1/5

(Activate), Destroy an ally in your party -> Draw a card.

Welcome to a new week of card reviews! Today we are looking at one of my favorite cards for the Lazy Peon format, Bizzik Sparkcog. Destroying an ally to draw a card may not seem to great, but if you had an ally that was going to die anyway (like from vanquish), then why not profit from it? I'm not saying every alliance deck should run Bizzik in the off chance that your ally is about to get pwned. Bizzik is specifically for Warlock builds. Dizzy can kill off any ally with Bizzik, draw a card, then use Medoc to retrieve the ally. Bizzik is a solid draw engine for Dizzy. He's more useful in Lazy Peon format than he is in constructed, but he is useful nonetheless.

Sealed: 1/5 (Unless you happen to pull Medoc and enough protectors, I wouldn't run him.)

Constructed: 4/5 (Pretty solid draw engine, though there are other options, like Dark Pact and Mooncloth Robe.)

Casual: 4.5/5 (Gotta love the hand advantage. Very annoying if your friends are running Priest discard.)

Raid: 1/5 (Onyxia will kill destroy your allies before you do.)

Lazy Peon: 5/5 (He's really the only viable draw engine you have.)

Bizzik Sparkcog

Hm... an ally which blows up his friends for a card. Well that’s fun.

Personally, I don’t really care for this card. Giving up one of your allies for just a card doesn’t sound that great in my ears. Horde might have a few allies you maybe would like to destroy, but sadly, Alliance doesn’t. I’d rather play Kena Shadowbrand for the drawing effect in this case. Bizzik is also a 2/4 for 4, which isn’t super good.

Although, he could work in a raid... Your allies are going to be destroyed anyway. Why not draw a card at the same time?

Constructed: 2/5
Sealed: 2/5
Casual: 2.5/5
Raid: 2.5/5
