Wizards of the Coast has officially begun the process of revealing details for Secret Lair, Magic: The Gathering's new "sub-brand" that's set to start things off this December. Basically, Magic will pull together thematically similar cards from previous sets with gorgeous new art for all the collectors out there.
"We're 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," Wizards Product Architect Mark Heggen told IGN. "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."
As of writing, the full series scheduled for the first Secret Lair drop has yet to be revealed, but the official social media for Magic: The Gathering has posted when and where folks can learn about individual sets within it. The various named bundles here will either cost $29.99 or $39.99, with a special bundle available that'll group them all together for $199.99. Each of these will be available for only 24 hours, but stock will not deplete during that time.
