I'm 70 matches and almost 20 hours into Core Set 2021 Standard, and it's been a lot of fun. M21 has had quite an impact on the format, spawning a few new archetypes and drastically changing the power level of others. We haven't quite had enough time for a metagame to solidify, but we do have a good grasp on which cards from M21 have broken into Standard. 

Here's my personal top 10:

#10: Terror of the Peaks

Many players wrote off Terror of the Peaks for being too vulnerable to cards like Elspeth Conquers Death and Teferi, Time Raveler. The key to this card's success has been to make immediate use of it, either by cheating it into play or having enough mana to follow up with another creature in the same turn.

The main ways it has been cheated into play so far are Command the Dreadhorde and Genesis Ultimatum. Genesis Ultimatum in particular works well with Terror of the Peaks because of the additional untapped mana it generates when it "whiffs." 

The main homes for this Dragon so far are Gruul Midrange, Temur Elementals and dedicated Command the Dreadhorde combo decks. 

#9: Primal Might

Primal Might is the best Prey Upon we've ever seen, and it doubles as a pump spell. Largely used in Mono-Green Aggro, it's also incredibly powerful in Naya Feather. The lack of instant-speed interaction in most aggro mirrors means that Primal Might is a complete blowout most of the time.

#8: Cultivate

Cultivate is probably the least exciting card on this list, but it's still one of the best cards in M21 for Standard. Ramp, card advantage and mana fixing all in one card is incredibly powerful. Cultivate excels at powering out Nissa, Who Shakes the World and Ugin, the Spirit Dragon, putting a land into play while guaranteeing your next land drop.

Cultivate sees some play in Bant Ramp as a 1-of or 2-of, but is heavily used in Sultai Ramp, where it's incredibly important to hit all of your land drops until you can cast Casualties of War and Ugin. 

#7: Selfless Savior

Selfless Savior is the type of protective creature we've seen before, but this one is a Dog! This is important for two reasons outside of the cuteness factor. Dogs are a supported creature type in M21, and Winota, Joiner of Forces wants non-Humans. Protecting Winota and triggering Winota with the same 1-drop is a big deal.

While Selfless Savior largely sees play right now in the Winota-Embercleave decks affectionately named "Paw-Blade," it's also seeing play in Mono-White Aggro.

#6: Seasoned Hallowblade

Seasoned Hallowblade is very similar to Adanto Vanguard, but importantly it plays much better on defense. Blocking as a 3/1 allows it to race much better than Adanto Vanguard ever could, even before factoring the life cost of Vanguard. This is just a premier aggressive threat in white. 

Seasoned Hallowblade sees play in "Paw-Blade," Feather, and Mono-White Aggro. 

#5: Jolrael, Mwonvuli Recluse

Jolrael, Mownvuli Recluse looks fairly unassuming at first. You can build your deck to get a 2/2 token roughly once a turn cycle, but the real power is in the activated ability. Jolrael can regularly make your team of tokens into 4/4s or larger, absolutely dominating an opponent who was unable to answer it. 

Because Jolrael is so fragile, it largely excels in sideboard games, but many Bant Ramp lists have been playing it in the maindeck, taking advantage of both Teferis, Uro, Growth Spiral, and Hydroid Krasis to make tokens early and often.

#4: Crash Through

Crash Through is a small but important card to the Izzet archetypes based around instants and sorceries. Another one-mana spell that replaces itself is exactly what both Prowess and Arclight Phoenix decks need, and trample is icing on the cake. 

Crash through is especially helpful in enabling both Pteramander and Stormwing Entity. These two cards alongside Sprite Dragon have given rise to a new Izzet Prowess build capable of killing quickly in the air. If you want to know more about that deck, check out Ally Warfield's latest article.

3) Teferi, Master of Time

Teferi, Master of Time is quietly powerful, best suited to working alongside other planeswalkers and making them incredibly difficult to remove. It also tears through your deck at an incredible speed and enables both Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath and Elspeth Conquers Death.

Teferi excels against singular large threats and has made Shark Typhoon much weaker as a tool to ambush planeswalkers and get around Teferi, Time Reveler.

Teferi, Master of Time is currently mostly used in Bant Ramp where all the above strengths are put to excellent use. Teferi, Time Raveler into Teferi, Master of Time is a hell of a curve.

#2: Scavenging Ooze

Scavenging Ooze has a pedigree in multiple formats. 

This Standard is very light on traditional removal, which the Ooze normally relies on to fill the graveyard for its activated ability. That hasn't stopped Scavenging Ooze from being an incredibly potent card in the format anyway. Most decks in the format use the graveyard as a resource, and those that don't are often aggressive decks where an early blocker that scales in size is just what you want. 

Ooze messes with Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, Elspeth Conquers Death, Cauldron Familiar, Lurrus of the Dream-Den, Dreadhorde Arcanist and Tamiyo, Collector of Tales  among others. It currently sees play in most green decks, though it's often relegated to the sideboard. 

#1: Ugin, The Spirit Dragon

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is a constraint on how you can play Standard. You're not allowed to play a deck that just loses to Ugin's -X. Your deck must be built with Ugin in mind. You must have a plan to answer the colorless endgame threat. 

Keep Teferi, Time Raveler off the field and counter Ugin. Take advantage of Ugin's large cost and redeploy a new battlefield Ugin can't just -X again. Haste down Ugin afterwards, or aim to end the game before Ugin can even be cast. Play colorless threats like Stonecoil Serpent. Never leave too much on the battlefield and immediately answer Ugin. Have. A. Plan.

Ugin, the Spirit Dragon is currently seeing play in almost every ramp archetype as well as some niche play in a few Mutate builds.
