Paulo (also shorthanded to PVDDR) is a Brazilian professional Magic player who has been playing the game professionally since 2003 at the World Championship in Berlin and a win in 2020.

Though it’s almost 20 years later, PVDDR is functionally the only player ever to have remained at the very top of competitive play for that long of a time frame.

He is considered one of the top 5 players of all time with many placing him higher at top 3 or even simply the best player to ever play the game.


Paulo’s Magic resume is easily one of the most impressive in Magic with a long list of achievements including:

  • 19 Grand Prix Top 8s with 2 wins
  • 17 Pro Tour Level Top 8s with 2 wins which is tied for highest amount of top 8s ever
  • 8 Worlds Appearances with 1 win in 2020
  • Elected to the Magic Hall of Fame in 2012 as the first South American player to ever receive this honor
  • 2 Top 8s at the Brazilian National Tournaments, both of them resulting in wins
  • Player of the Year in 2017
  • Highest life time earnings ever
  • Youngest player to reach a lifetime of 300 Pro Points

With such a storied history, Paulo has an unfathomable wealth of knowledge that we are elated that he’s willing to share with our Premium readers.
