David Price (aka "The King of Beatdown") is a former professional Magic: The Gathering player. He won Pro Tour Los Angeles 1998, and finished in the top eight of three Grand Prix events. He is, however, perhaps best known as a deck builder, theorist, and writer. He was associated with beatdown decks such as Deadguy Red, and he wrote one of the most popular Magic theory articles: "The Art of Beatdown".
People like control because they think it shows that they're good Magic players. Active decks, on the other hand, produce threats, and control decks must have the right answer to the right threat. If not, they're in trouble. While there are wrong answers, there are no wrong threats.
