I don't know if it is fair to include race for the galaxy. That is definitely more of a tableu building game rather than deck building. While I haven't played core worlds I have played eminent domain and it feels very different from race.
Race is often compared to EmDo based upon 4 things:
1. Tableau building
2. Space theme
4. Role Selection with leader benefits
As a debate on a deck builders I agree, but there is a lot of similarity between the two, at least at face value. Nothing in this post suggests that the debate is about deck builders though.
