Brad

Nelson

Fffreak
A Master of Standard and Hungry for Victories

Back when he was a rising star in 2010, Brad Nelson won the first-ever playoff for Player of the Year in one of the most dramatic live events in Magic history. Since then he's built a reputation as one of the best Standard players in the world. He enjoys sparring with his brother Corey Baumeister or close friends—and fellow MPLers—Seth Manfield and Brian Braun-Duin as he tests to find the best deck for every event. With two heart-breaking finals Top Finishes in 2019, 2020 is poised to be the year Nelson takes the trophy home again.
