Magic The Gathering: Transformers Secret Lair Superdrop – Here’s What’s Inside

0

Magic The Gathering’s Secret Lair drops allow players to pick up special cards at a premium price. Often times they are reprints of older cards with new art, and other times they are completely new cards. However, launching into the secret lair site, coming December 5th, is a new Secret Lair set that feels like an extension of the variant cards from the recent The Brothers’ War set. That’s right, Magic is diving back into Transformers, and here it is all in the new installment of Secret Lair.

The Superdrop consists of three Secret Lair drops: One Shall Stand, One Shall Fall; Optimus Prime vs. Megatron; and Roll Out or Rise Up. Individually, these packages are $30 for regular and $40 for foil. You can also buy all three together for $89 for regular or $119 for foil.

But it’s all about what’s inside the box, right? Like typical Secret Lair installments, the Magic the Gathering cards contained in the installment are divided into the three aforementioned sets. First up are the land cards, and a quick look at the interior packaging.

There are six total cards in this set: Mountains, Swamp, Forest, Island, Plains, and a secret card (not shown). Features art by David Sondered and Joana LaFuente.

The next set is Roll Out or Rise Up, a six-card set with instant, sorcery, and enchantment cards, plus a secret card (again, not shown). Take a look at the images below, showing the art of Volta Creation, and we’ll go over what each one does.
