Apple will probably never add support for the Sound Blaster card, and neither will the company, I doubt, mostly because the Revolution 7.1 is a kick-ass card and even if the Sound Blaster card supported OS X, the Revolution 7.1 would still kick that card - if you need a card, get the Revolution 7.1 card - full surround up to 7.1 and OS X ready.

The only downside to the Revolution 7.1 card is that it doesn't take the sound strain off the CPU - all it does is add support for true surround sound decoding, but the processor still has to do all the sound processing work, unlike the Sound Blaster card, which took all the work off the processor in terms of doing the sound.
