Core Set 2021 is full of powerfull reprints. The set was released on 25 June, 2020 at MTGO. After one week, how did it impact each format? These lists were made using our [link](https://mtg.cardsrealm.com/metagame/standard)(Metagame page): we collected information from the winners of Playoffs, Challenge, SCG opens, Magicfests PTQs, MagicFest Online qualifiers among others tournaments. The idea here was to process the cards that most appeared on these winning decks; just to have a metric about what’s going on in each format’s metagame. For this specific case, we analyzed the metagame of each format in the last 7 days. We removed reprints, basic lands, etc ... and also removed Competitive Leagues decklists in MTGO (5-0), due to these lists not being random but chosen by Wizards of the Coast. *STANDARD* (>10%) *6.
