You're right - I crunched the numbers, and two rerolls is all I'm going to get. Planned roster is:
4 Blitzers (two with Dodge, one with Dodge and Guard)
1 Runner (with Dodge)
6 Linemen (two with Wrestle)
I had to go back to the OP to understand why there are no Witch Elves in the roster. Because you have to pick 150k in skills. On 1M gc, it's difficult to take more positionals as you don't want to play Elves with less than 2 TRR.
Personally I would opt to include at least one Witch Elf, as they are the best blitzing players on the Dark Elf roster and Frenzy creates new possibilities what your opponent has to take into account.
And most importantly Wrestle is a great skill on the Witch Elves: they come with dodge: so it will be easier to get to the BC to blitz him AND they have Jump Up to laugh at the victim of their last wrestle. Sure Frenzy can get you into bad places but if you need to make the block successfull, you can also blitz with a Blitzer. And basically Frenzy gives you a second shot vs Blodgers, which makes you more efficient.
Another benefit is that you will be able to move a player 2 squares, nothing to sneeze at! Imagen the possibilities to chain-push, or simply to push your target next to players that have still to activate. You can quickly get to 8 block dice thrown vs a player.
Don't get me wrong, I do like Wrestle for linemen but I doubt if they are the best players to target opponent Blodgers.
I would consider taking 1-2x Tackle, if you are so worried with blodgers. As tackle works as a passive skill, it's great for Line Elves as they typically have to mark a player, without throwing a block.
Also I feel a little sad for the Blitzer with no skills, what is his role going to be?
I am wondering on how your typical defensive set-up would be, as you don't have a symmetrical team, the classic Ziggurat (which I choose by default far too much) isn't ideal as you will have to commit guard to ether side.
So I would say the more central, "boat" line-up for maximal protection of the important players.
