Secret Lair is a “sub-brand” of Magic: The Gathering that groups existing cards into small collectible sets with strange themes and wild new art styles.[1][2] The Secret Lair Series is Wizard of the Coast's first full foray into selling single reprints directly to players.

Description[edit]

For Secret Lair, Wizards of the Coast is trying to work with artists they usually don't: street artists, comic book artists, album cover designers, etc. Alternately, they may use traditional Magic artists working with very non-traditional art briefs.

Drop Series[edit]

All cards in the print-to-demand Secret Lair Drop Series have alternate art and a rare or mythic rare shooting star expansion symbol. The tokens have a common expansion symbol. The Secret Lair Drop Series are English only.

The "drops" contains between three and seven cards and/or tokens in a customized collector box, costing either $29.99, $39.99, or $49.99 depending on the drop – some of which use premium foil cards as well. The drops are only for purchase from the Wizards of the Coast webshop secretlair.wizards.com. Each drop usually only lasts for 24 hours (though there are some exceptions). "Superdrops" are multi-day sales including multiple different drops that can be purchased individually or as part of a bundle.[3]

For the The Walking Dead series, the premise of only reprints was abandoned.
