Upon release, System Update 2021 immediately becomes legal in the Standard and Eternal formats, as well as NISEI’s new Startup format, with a two-week grace period before becoming legal at Competitive-level events. System Update 2021’s release also triggers a rotation for the Standard format: Honor and Profit, the SanSan Cycle, System Core 2019, and Salvaged Memories will no longer be legal in Standard.
To see what remains in Standard, check out our Supported Formats page.
