Secretversary is a series of drops in the Secret Lair product range and a continuation of the alternate art Secret Lair Drop Series.[2] It will available for pre-order purchase from the Wizards of the Coast webshop secretlair.wizards.com from November 30th through December 14th, 2020.[3]

Description[edit | edit source]

Secretversary is a superdrop to celebrate the one-year anniversary of the Secret Lair Drop Series. The contents of this superdrop were leaked a month early on Instagram.[4] It introduces the Artist Series; a sub-series of drops for which a famous artist is allowed to choose four Magic cards they want to illustrate. They get "carte blanche"; total freedom to do what they want.[5]

Unlike the 24-hour availability of individual drops inside previous superdrops, everything within the Secretversary Superdrop will be available to preorder for two full weeks.

Poem[edit | edit source]

The flavor text on Seb McKinnon's drop of cards features the following story-poem written by his brother Liam. The poem was also used in the accompanying introduction video (with the music created by Seb).[5]

"Moth to my Light
Cease resistance
Hand over the reigns
To your mind

All deeds once committed
Repaid now in kind

Tempest ends
And water stills
Gently reinventing
The shape of all things"
