Nice to see another one of the seldom red defensive creatures. Also, the art is neat, the ogre left to him looks like a sweat baby ogre at my first view, but really, I understand why Kazuul became a tyrant because he was certainly bullied due to his size. This poor ogre is most likely one of his former evil classmate.^^
But I have one question: He is the only card who has the wording "Whenever a creature an opponent controls attacks, if you're the defending player,", both older (f.e. Hissing Miasma) and newer cards (Isperia, Supreme Judge) have the wording "Whenever a creature attacks you ,"... Why got Kazuul another wording?

@Kick the Can
Nope! You'll get 1 3/3 token against a Nacatl War-Pride because only Nacatl War-Pride "attacks". Both effects are triggered on "attack" and the tokens put into play and attacking from Nacatl War-Pride never "attack", thus, they get a whole menagerie of tokens and you get one that MUST block. (as Nacatl War-Pride will always have 1 more attacker than you typically would have blockers. This extra token would be forced to block that lone extra.)

That said usuall Nacatl War-Pride doesn't have to attack for the win unless you fogged or something last turn. Usually it's there to wipe the board or make something dangerous and huge into something that's Unblockable, dangerous, and huge. So even if this guy worked like that, you'll still be stuck with something green and huge vs. a 3/3 you create. If it's got trample you just die like you would've.

The "anti Nacatl War Pride" is probably Lightning Bolt.

All that said this guy is pretty sweet against green... (see all)

This + Living Plane + Curse of the Nightly Hunt or Avatar of Slaughter.

Your opponents' lands become your 3/3 Ogre tokens. Even Ajani is envious.

Legendary Ogre with a funny hat? I think he escaped from Kamigawa.

Kazuul: Yeah I know, my ogres are blocking

Kresh: HAHAHA, I love battle
Kazuul: heehee, me too

Gideon Jura to force them to attack.

@f_fivefiftyseven: You can definitely see why the elves would want him dead. Even an Overrun wouldn't fully counteract this guy. On the other hand, they do have tons of mana...

The Eldrazi, on the other hand, probably wouldn't care, despite this guy spitting out chump-blockers and Annihilator bait. Partially because they already have gobs of mana, but mostly because they don't really care about anything smaller than an apartment building.

This is great. A 5/4 five-drop which does not only provide a chump-blocker for every attacking creature unless your opponent pays plenty of mana each time, you even get decent 3/3 bodies who don't vanish!
This means your opponent will only consider attacking with creatures who have stronger bodies than your Ogres or if he/she can afford to pay the mana. Kazuul will prevent you from any small creature hordes. Even flying or otherwise evasive creatures will only be declared as attackers with care.
A strange red card since it's a defensive one, but the way it's achieved is actually very red because it gets that effective by menacing with offensive.
It's like a red-flavored version of Ghostly Prison or Propaganda on legs.
Too bad he doesn't produce Ogre Warrior tokens, though.

Taunting your opponent's creatures is great fun with Kazuul!
