Format statistics for Standard are compiled by evaluating the occurrence of each card in the format, and comparing it to the inclusion of that card in the previous iterations of the format over the 6 months prior to the start of this iteration of the format. The decks used to make these calculations have all been played competitively, and were top-ranked (e.g., "Top 8") in their tournaments.

However, there have not been a sufficient number of tournaments in the current iteration of Standard to establish a reasonable trend. So, the results below are for the previous iteration of Standard.

This iteration of Standard Format started on May 3, 2019, and was updated on July 12, 2019. The formats that are being used for comparison are Standard_2018-10-05, and Standard_2019-01-25.

711 decks have been evaluated to determine these trends.
