Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition is a product in the Secret Lair product range. It is similar to a drop in the Secret Lair Drop Series, but with a different distribution model. It became available for purchase at local game stores on June 12, 2020. The original release was supposed to be May 29, but this was pushed back because of a delay in manufacturing due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
Ultimate Edition is a collection of the five Zendikarenemy coloredfetch lands last seen in Modern Masters 2017, featuring art from five of Magic's premier artists set in five popular Magicplanes. The lands are packaged in a commemorative box that can be used for display. In contrast to the Drop Series, Ultimate Edition isn't sold through the webshop of Wizards of the Coast, doesn't have an availability window and isn't printed to demand. Copies are limited — WPNstores were announced to typically receive no more than 10 copies of Ultimate Edition.
Although Wizards of the Coast didn't use suggested retail prices anymore, Blake Rasmussen expected the price to be "a bit more" than the price of Commander Anthology (> $165.00). In actuality, many stores only received four or five boxes and the price skyrocketed to $275-$500. This led to criticism, because the release didn't solve the lack of availability of fetchlands, and the price wasn't affordable for regular players but targeted at "whales" (big spenders) instead.
Two weeks before Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition went on sale at WPN stores, Wizards of the Coast ran a Summer Superdrop. If you purchased the bundle that combined each drop, you received one random Ultimate Edition fetch land.
It was also announced that the fetchlands would be reprinted in a supplementary product in 2020. This later turned out to be the Zendikar Risingbox topper set.
