Alex Mitas is a college student from Albuquerque, NM, and an up-and-coming Magic player with a penchant for playing control decks, experience on the pro tour and, most recently, a grand prix top 8 competitor.
Flavor, story, art, but above all - the competition.
Alex played too impulsively.
Discovering Twich.tv and watching videos of other Magic players.
At Grand Prix San Antonio years ago, Alex went 0-3 and dropped. He felt awful because he had drove a long way, spent money on the event and practiced really hard. He learned to be more open-minded about his mistakes.
First time Alex qualified for the Pro Tour. Alex felt like it was all worth it.
Alex has learned he has a capacity for patience.
Mulligan decisions. Newbies don't mulligan enough. More advanced players (on the cusp of being really good) mulligan too much.
"Sit down and do the work." Get a team together.
Play Magic because it's fun. Not for the sunk costs.
"Be more open-minded."
Keep almost every hand with 2-5 lands.
Alex can be found in the MTG Pro Tutor Facebook group.
