I have a magfloat with the scraper attachment. If you're careful, you won't get sand between the magnetic scraper and the glass. For the back wall, I glued an old credit card on a wood handle. I don't worry about the scraped off algae as many fish will readily eat it and the rest ends up in the filters.
Now algae is just a reality in most tanks and since it's a great aid in water purification, why not leverage it? I used to just let the algae grow on the sidewall in the corner behind a bubble bar as a pseudo algae scrubber. Recently, as an experiment, I've attached a piece of plastic canvas mesh I roughed up as an algae collector...
Once fully 'seeded' with algae, this should improve water quality and reduce algae elsewhere in the tank. We'll see.
