7 / 7
Card Number:
5/1/2009 Blitz Hellion's last ability triggers at the end of each turn in which it's on the battlefield. If it's not on the battlefield by the time this ability resolves, nothing happens. Blitz Hellion stays wherever it is, and its owner doesn't shuffle their library.
5/1/2009 A token that's copying Blitz Hellion will be shuffled into its owner's library when this ability resolves, then will cease to exist. For practical purposes, the token should not actually be put into the library, though the library is still shuffled.
4/29/2022 If you choose to pay the blitz cost rather than the mana cost, you're still casting the spell. It goes on the stack and can be responded to and countered. You can cast a creature spell for its blitz cost only if you could cast that creature spell. Most of the time, this means during your main phase when the stack is empty.
4/29/2022 If you pay the blitz cost to cast a creature spell, that permanent will be sacrificed only if it's still on the battlefield when that triggered ability resolves. If it dies or goes to another zone before then, it will stay where it is.
4/29/2022 You don't have to attack with the creature with blitz unless another ability says you do.
4/29/2022 If a creature enters the battlefield as a copy of or becomes a copy of a creature whose blitz cost was paid, the copy won't have haste, won't be sacrificed, and its controller won't draw a card when it dies.
4/29/2022 The triggered ability that lets its controller draw a card triggers when it dies for any reason, not just when you sacrifice it during the end step.
