Quote from benjameenbear »I've never looked at the definition of a tempo deck vs. a Stax deck that way before. That is exactly what this deck is looking for, and that makes a lot more sense and I define Kaalia to definitely be a Tempo deck. Nether Void definitely seems like a strong inclusion in terms of being a pseudo-Geddon because it constricts mana in a similar way. And the rest of the deck has a low CMC, so if I can get Kaalia underneath the Void than my opponent's land count might as well be useless. I like that one a lot.
The decks that Kaalia plays against most often are mana-dork decks. Cursed Totem and Linvala, Keeper of Silence do way more work against my opponents than Null Rod and Stony Silence. The dis-synergy with my mana rocks is a little too much for me to accept. I am still very curious on how effective Blood Moon is because a lot of the decks are Tri-Color decks and it would brutally hose them down.
