Today, Wizards of the Coast announced the Secret Lair Drop Series, a new sub-brand of Magic: the Gathering products that will “explore new (and potentially weird) ways to celebrate the original strategy card game and its fans.”

The first drop of Secret Lair will be made up of seven theme sets featuring three to seven reprints per drop, each with new art, tokens, a collector box, a code for MTG Arena sleeve styles, and a code for a copy of each card on Magic Online, all sold via the Wizards of the Coast store. The drops begin on December 2 at 12 PM Eastern through December 9 with each drop being available for 24 hours. All seven will be sold as a bundle on December 2 for $199.99, with each individual bundle sold one at a time for the next seven days for either $29.99 or $39.99, depending on the drop.

The schedule for the drops will be as follows:

  • 12/2: Secret Lair Bundle of all seven drops, $199.99
  • 12/3: Bitterblossom Dreams, $29.99
  • 12/4: Eldraine Wonderland, $29.99
  • 12/5: Restless in Peace, $29.99
  • 12/6: Seeing Visions, $29.99
  • 12/7: <explosion sounds>, $29.99
  • 12/8: Kaleidoscope Killers, $39.99
  • 12/9: OMG KITTIES!, $39.99

Unlike previous special releases, the Secret Lair Drop Series won’t run out of stock. “Everyone who wants one can have one, as long as they show up during the 24-hour window that the drop is happening,” Product Architect Mark Heggen told IGN, though they are limited to 10 per customer. The drops will be available internationally, as well, to most countries in Europe and a select few in the Asia-Pacific region. (Check the full list here.)

The reveal of the Secret Lair Drop Series comes after nearly a week of teases on social media that led to intense community speculation about the product. Wizards says that the series is “a love letter for its fans” and is built “from the ground up to be a home for the stranger, more experimental, more unexpected cards that we think some players will love but don’t fit into our sets and other products.”

Heggen said that Wizards is “working with street artists, comic book artists, traditional Magic artists working with very non-traditional art briefs, album cover designers, and on and on and on,” in order to push the envelope of Magic art. “It really is a chance to welcome new artists and styles into the game, which is a big part of what makes this all so fun.”

There are seven drops in the first series of the Secret Lair Drop series but Wizards has more plans for the product continuing into 2020—and they’ll be “even weirder and more surprising.”
