Stranger Things.png

Stranger Things: a tie-in with the 2016 American science fiction horror Netflix series.[3][4] Stranger Things is set in the fictional rural town of Hawkins, Indiana, during the early 1980s. The nearby Hawkins National Laboratory ostensibly performs scientific research for the United States Department of Energy, but secretly does experiments into the paranormal and supernatural, including those that involve human test subjects. Inadvertently, they have created a portal to an alternate dimension, "the Upside Down". The influence of the Upside Down affects the unknowing residents of Hawkins in calamitous ways. The main characters are fervent Dungeons & Dragons players, which is reflected in some of the card names.

This drop features eight mechanically unique cards and a Clue token. It introduces the Friends forever keyword ability.

Stranger Things is part of the Universes Beyond product line. Wizards of the Coast will create and print in-multiverse versions of the Stranger Things cards, approximately six months after the release of the Secret Lair.[5] These will become available as part of The List of Streets of New Capenna, and will be findable in Set Boosters for as long as players are still interested in opening them. The non-canon cards and the canon cards will be considered as equivalent game pieces, meaning you can only play up to four copies total of the Magic version and Universes Beyond version combined in your deck. There will be a special card treatment that indicates that the cards are related.[6]

Mirrodinsanity: So, we were like, "Hey DXTR, we really like that card you did for us before. Wanna do a cycle of artifact lands?" And DXTR was like, "Yup." And like, we were expecting some super-cool, hand-painted, pixel art-inspired pieces, but instead, he went ALL OUT, and we got these WILD pieces just dripping with detail and lore. Krark's on one of 'em! AND his thumb! There's so much going on, and every inch of it just oozes cool! (Actual cards do not ooze or drip.)

Monster Anatomy 101: Ever wonder what some of Magic's weirdest creatures look like on the inside? Us neither, but Timba Smits showed us the truth: they look pretty sweet! Consider these cards your intro lesson on the inner workings of some ravenous beasties. The alternative is to let a giant dino eat you, and that presents more logistical errors than we can address in a simple product description. Whether you surgically implant these cards inside your deck or proudly display them to educate passersby, you can rest soundly knowing you've shared knowledge with the world. And that, friend, is a beautiful thing.

Monster Movie Marathon: This superdrop only, we've got a bone-chilling quadruple feature by the macabre maestro Martin Ansin. WATCH in terror as man becomes monster in Beast Within! COWER in fear at the unspeakable terror of Blasphemous Act! RECOIL in horror at a doctor's madness in Dismember! FLEE the terrors of Amonkhet in Grafdigger's Cage! Get your tickets soon—when these shows leave the theater, they're not coming back.

Read the Fine Print: Just like how all of us always read the full terms of service agreement, it's important to scrutinize the fine print of any contract. If Liliana had, she would have discovered that upon the death of her demonic sponsors, the control of her contract defaulted to someone much more . . . Bolas-y. To celebrate the spooky season and this cool piece of Magic history, we asked artist ZIUK to lend us his considerable talents to portray Liliana and her demons in their full, gold-plated glory. Whether you want to play these cards or just stare at them forever, they can be yours—no demonic contract required.[7][8]

Showcase: Midnight Hunt: Experience ten classic Innistrad utility lands in BONE-CHILLING BLACK AND WHITE! Ten of the Innistrad: Midnight Hunt artists reprise their style in the eerie eternal night style. Alayna Danner, DZO, Nico Delort, Daria Khlebnikova, Rio Krisma, Dan Mumford, Kerby Rosanes, Jessica Seamans, Robbie Trevino, and N.C. Winters remind you that the only thing to fear is fear itself — and these lands!

Thrilling Tales of the Undead: Welcome to the first editions of THRILLING TALES OF THE UNDEAD! In this pulp novel inspired set of Magic cards, you'll find ACTION, ADVENTURE, SCARES, and MORE! Fay Dalton carefully crafted these creep-tacular covers, each promising a new tale of derring-do inside their hypothetical, non-existent pages. Whether you want to shuffle them into your deck or stick them on your shelf, these pulp covers promise a thrilling tale!
