The fine folks over at have released data that showcases the most popular cards so far from Magic's most recent addition, M21.

The data comes from 224k matches on the Best-of-1 ladder from ranks Gold and above.

Most Popular M21 Cards

It shouldn't be much of a surprise that Ugin, the Spirit Dragon and the new Teferi, Master of Time make an appearance on this list. They both received overwhelming amounts of hype (groans included) upon announcement, rightfully so, since they are amazing cards. Ugin showing up in almost a third of tracked matches is a bit on the insane side though and we wouldn't be surprised if this is addressed should the trend continue. We'll have to see how the rotation with Zendikar Rising changes up Standard. 

We've also got some serious ramp present in the top 5 through Solemn Simulacrum and Cultivate, which I've quite enjoyed the latter in premiere draft. Here are the top 5 most popular cards from M21 and the number of matches where this card appears in a deck. What do you make of this? Are you surprised?
