UR Tempo

This is an aggro-control, or “tempo”, deck. It looks to set its opponent behind with cards like Remand while applying pressure with evasive threats like Delver of Secrets and Nimble Obstructionist. Cards like Lightning Bolt and Wizard’s Lightning allow us to both control the board or close out games when our opponent’s health total gets low. You can read a bit about this history of this deck on CSI here as well as check out a primer after my run at SCG Indy here.
