Posted in News on May 25, 2020

By Wizards of the Coast

This sale is postponed out of respect for the National Day of Mourning. Sales will resume Monday at 9am.

Ahh, summer has finally come to the Northern Hemisphere. The sun is shining, birds are singing, our future robot overlords are laying the foundation for their eventual dominion. Wait, what?

That's right, the time has come to unveil the Secret Lair: Summer Superdrop!

Now, you may be wondering what a "superdrop" is. If you've been with us since way back in December 2019, I'm sure you remember the very first group of Secret Lair drops we released back-to-back-to-back in rapid-fire succession. That's a superdrop! The Secret Lair Drop Series is built around 24-hour flash releases, and superdrops are our marquee moments—our let's-blow-the-roof-off extravaganzas where we bring a whole bunch of different drops together and really showcase the wide range of exciting Secret Lair weirdness.

Beginning June 1, we'll be releasing five unique Secret Lair drops for preorder in quick succession—each with blink-and-you'll-miss-it 24-hour availability only at secretlair.wizards.com. These drops will also be available in a bundle that includes a very special bonus! These are all preorders, meaning all drops will ship at a later date once product is available.

So, what's in these drops? Scroll down to see!

We sat some classic cards down in the chair, and they emerged with some rad new ink. Before you decide to purchase, your mother would like us to remind you that getting these cards is a permanent decision and that you need to consider that they will look awesome in your decks or collection forever. Tattoo master Josh Howard lent his needle to create these incredible traditional flash sheet designs—a brand-new look for Magic.

Being a Planeswalker comes with heavy responsibilities. What would happen if our Planeswalkers decided to pack things up and do something else with their lives—or had never sparked at all? This drop explores alternate fates for Ajani, Domri, Tamiyo, and Vraska. We've entrusted their lives to the steady hands of Yeong-Hao Han, Chris Rallis, David Rapoza, and Mike Uziel. Maybe in yet another universe, these Planeswalkers are collecting cards of you!

This drop celebrates the quintessential red spell: the humble and efficient Lightning Bolt. Whether it's destroying your opponent's mana dork on turn one or simply being hurled into their face, Lightning Bolt does it all, as long as "all" can be done with 3 direct damage. Each piece shows a different creature getting totally wrecked by the cruel and unforgiving power of nature (out of respect for the feelings of Ornithological Studies, Birds will be getting a pass). These full-art foil cards feature electrifying, brand-new art by Noah Bradley, Brigitte Roka, Robbie Trevino, and Alexis Ziritt.

Of all of Magic's fictional creatures, Birds are far and away the most popular. First invented by Richard Garfield in 1987, Birds eventually made their way into Limited Edition (Alpha) via the powerful Birds of Paradise card. We thought it would be cool to envision what Birds would look like if they existed in real life, so we commissioned some naturalistic, classical illustrations from Ovidio Cartagena and Allen Douglas.

SUMMER SUPERDROP BUNDLE

What's cooler than getting your hands on all five drops in one easy package? Getting all five drops and a special bonus—a non-foil enemy fetch land! That's right, we've gone and made the Summer Superdrop even more fetching. (Thank you, thank you, we'll be here all . . . until June 15.)

Fetch land image

The bundle will be available June 1–15, sticking around for a bit after the individual drop days end in case you miss a drop or can't make up your mind quite fast enough for those 24-hour timers. But don't wait too long! Once the bundle is gone, the sun will have truly set on the Summer Superdrop.
