Magic: The Gathering Arena Gives Bob Ross Lands Away Free [Updated]

Wizards of the Coast announced last week that Bob Ross's artwork would appear on a limited edition set of Magic: The Gathering's cards. The Bob Ross lands appeared first on Magic: The Gathering Arena in November. Wizards of the Coast announced the "Happy Little Gathering" Secret Lair drop later. The collection includes a code to redeem five of the ten Bob Ross lands on the digital platform. To add the other fives lands to your Arena collection all you need is five free codes. Wizards of the Coast will reveal five codes that, for a limited time, will each unlock a different Bob Ross land for free in the digital version of its popular card game. Wizards of the Coast will reveal one new code each day throughout the week. [UPDATE: It seems someone revealed all five of the codes at once online. We've tested them and they work. You can find all five of the codes below.]

The codes are only viable until December 14th. Players should act fast. Here are the codes revealed thus far:

  • DelightfulMeadow (Plains)
  • MoveMountains (Mountain)
  • IslandWilderness (Island)
  • HappySwamp (Swamp)
  • TreeFriend (Forest)

The "Happy Little Gathering" Secret Lair drop is a partnership between Wizards of the Coast and the Ross estate. Like all Secret Lair drops (including the recent The Walking Dead Secret Lair drop), will be available only for a limited time. The set includes two copies of each of Magic: The Gathering's five-basic land cards -- plains, island, swamp, mountain, and forest -- with each card featuring a different Ross painting as its illustration. The set will be available in both foil and non-foil editions.

Since basic land cards are required to cast spells in Magic: The Gathering, they appear in all but the most niche Magic decks. That makes Happy Little Gathering possibly the most playable Secret Lair drop in the program's one-year history.


The set also includes one non-basic land, Evolving Wilds, which also features Ross's artwork. Ross was the host of The Joy of Painting PBS series which became an internet-favorite personality following his death in 1995. Ross was best known as a landscape artist, making his work a natural fit for the basic lands of Magic: The Gathering.

The set will be available to pre-order on the Secret Lair website from November 30th through December 14th.
