The following are the only three options
German Blocked Bank Account (which you have already mentioned):
International students who want to study in Germany need to open a German blocked bank account and deposit 10,332 euros for one year since 1 September 2020 and as of to-date. A student can only withdraw up to a maximum of 10,332 euros/12 = 861 euros per month For the coming years, they have show the same amount or enough that you can
Following are the alternatives:
1. German or foreign official scholarship:
You should either have a scholarship that covers your complete expenses
2. According to the German Embassy Pakistan website: formal obligation (“Verpflichtungserklärung”, declaration of liability) according to §§ 66-68 of the German Resident’s Act by a sponsor residing in Germany and with confirmed sufficient financial means. Please also bring income proof and bank statement (last 6 months) of sponsor.
Verpflichtungserklärung by literal meaning is a declaration of commitment. In the letter, a legal resident (friend, resident or business) or other registered legal entity vows to the Federal authorities that they could cover your expenses during your stay in Germany.

For details and authentic information, you should check your concerned embassy/consulate or contact them for further queries.
