Core Set 2021, also known as Core 2021, is the 20th Magic core set. It will be released on July 3, 2020.
The featured planeswalker is Teferi. The cards feature a newly designed core set expansion symbol.
Core Set 2021 is sold in 16-card Draft Boosters (one card being a marketing card), five planeswalker decks, the Core 2021 bundle, and a Starter Kit. No Theme Boosters were announced, but instead Core 2021 is the first core set to feature Collector Boosters. A Deck Builder's Toolkit is absent in the announcements.
Core Set 2021 set is closely tied to Jumpstart, a booster product that releases two weeks later. Jumpstart is meant to provide an easy starting point for players who don't have the appetite or time for deckbuilding. Jumpstart shares 120 cards with Core set 2021.
The Magic Arena Starter Kit (in previous editions known as the Spellslinger Starter Kit) comes with two Standard-legal 60-card decks, designed to create an interactive learning experience for two.
Unlike with expansions, planeswalker decks are still a part of the product line-up for the Core Set.
Core 2021 features five planeswalker decks, that come with one booster and a foil planeswalker card.
