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.
See you on the Battlefield

Turn, destroy an ally in your party Draw a card.

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
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.

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
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
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

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

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?
