Wizards of the Coast announced a new only-kind-of-an-Apirl-Fool’s-joke Secret Lair today featuring the “greatest” Magic cards of all time.

The product’s full title, “Wizards of the Coast Presents: After Great Deliberation, We Have Compiled and Remastered the Greatest Magic: The Gathering Cards of All Time, Ever,” reveals the jokey theme of the newest Secret Lair drop. Those “greatest” cards, of course, are Storm Crow, Goblin Snowman, Mudhole, and Squire. (Did you even have to ask?) Each card will come in foil with new art shown off in full-art frames.

UPDATE (6/22/20): Squire will no longer be included in this Secret Lair drop.

UPDATE (9/15/20): It appears that Squire has been replaced with a white-bordered Tibalt, the Fiend Blooded.

Though its announcement comes on April Fool’s Day, Wizards confirms that the drop is real—just that it won’t be available immediately. “[W]e aren’t printing any of these drops just yet,” Wizards said. “Real talk, the timing doesn’t feel right. Instead, we think you should take this moment to help people struggling due to the outbreak of COVID-19.”

That means that, while the drop is listed on the Secret Lair store, it won’t be for sale. Instead, Wizards will send the drop to WPN stores—at no charge.

“At some point in the future,” Wizards continued, “after we’ve all safely gotten past this outbreak, we’ll print and provide these Secret Lair drops to WPN stores at no charge, to use at their discretion. We aren’t yet sure when that will be or how stores will distribute them, but it’ll happen.”

The “greatest” Magic cards of all time drop is the 16th announced drop in the Secret Lair Drop Series. Wizards has also announced a separate Secret Lair branded product, called Secret Lair Ultimate Edition, which contains all five enemy-colored fetchlands and will release on May 29, 2020. Similar to today’s Secret Lair, Ultimate Edition will only be available at local game stores.
