Alex Ullman

Alex Ullman has been playing Magic for 24 years. Since 2005, he's spent most of his time playing and exploring Pauper. While he long ago put Pro Tour aspirations to bed, he has focused his energies on his favorite format to better understand its metagame and share the nuances of Pauper with the Magic-playing world. One of his proudest accomplishments was being on the winnings side of the 2009 Community Cup. He makes his home in Brooklyn, New York, where he was born and raised.
