Secret Lair Drop Series: April Fools

Happy Yargle Day! is a drop of cards in the Secret Lair product range and a continuation of the Secret Lair Drop Series.[2][3] It became available for purchase from the Wizards of the Coast webshop on September 3, 2020. The drop lasted for 24 hours. The price is $29.99 for the non-foil version and $39.99 for the foil version.


The set is themed around Yargle, a gluttonous Frog Spirit from Dominaria. For our entire lives, we have celebrated Yargle Day every single September 3rd. This is well-known information and taught over and over again in schools, but here are a few Yargle Day reminders:

  • If you hear footsteps on your roof, REMAIN CALM. Yargle can smell your fear.
  • It doesn’t matter if you’re naughty or nice, Yargle’s gaping maw is large enough to accommodate both kinds of children at once.
  • Save your milk and cookies for December. Consider tying a goat to a fence on the outskirts of your property, and maybe he’ll get full.
  • Yargle never gets full.

It seems a single card in Dominaria was not enough to appease this beautiful, cruel spirit, so we have printed several popular cards with new art celebrating his glorious visage. We fondly remember the [sacrifices] artists who undertook this daunting challenge: Dmitry Burmak, Jehan Choo, Matt Dixon, Chuck Lukacs, and Franz Vohwinkel. May Yargle have mercy on their souls.

The set also includes a unique code to redeem for one copy of each of the Happy Yargle Day! Secret Lair Drop cards for use in Magic Online.
