Japanese player Yuta Takahashi won the 2021 Magic The Gathering World Championship on October 10.  

Yuta Takahashi piloted Izzet Dragons to defeat Jean-Emmanuel Depraz, who ran Temur Treasures, in the finals to capture the crown. Jan Merkel and Ondrei Strasky also made the top four, both running the Grixis Epiphany deck. The final four occurred after two days of competitive swiss tournament play, which also included a draft.

The real winner out of the Standard portion of the World Championship were some of the Standard format singles that showed up in the top decks. Copies of Alrund's Epiphany from Kaldheim (see "'Kaldheim'") made three of the top four decks, a card that is now priced between $13.00 and $17.00 on TCGplayer. Another heavily played card was Goldspan Dragon, also from Kaldheim, which now sells for around $40.00 on TCGplayer.
