Magic: The Gathering Reveals Its Warhammer Secret Lairs

No sooner does Magic: The Gathering unleash the four Warhammer: 40,000 Commander decks do we receive a full reveal of the upcoming Secret Lair Drop Series: Warhammer 40,000. This series of Secret Lairs is actually three drops in one, with a package devoted to Warhammer 40K's beloved Orks, Blood Bowl, and Warhammer: Age of Sigmar.

Today's reveal comes courtesy of YouTuber PleasantKenobi who unboxed each secret lair earlier today. The Secret Lairs arrive in a very gothic-looking package that inside has the three Secret Lairs, each of which contains five or six cards that are full-art reprints of existing but on-theme Magic cards.

Starting with the Blood Bowl Secret Lair, we have:

  • Touchdown! – Approach of the Second Sun
  • Re-Roll (Rewind)
  • Both Down (Bone Splinters)
  • Throw Team-Mate (Fling)
  • Perfect Defense (Defense of the Heart)
  • The Ball (Fellwar Stone)

Then in the Warhammer: Age of Sigmar pack, players can expect:

  • Blind Obedience
  • Neave Blacktalon (Banith Capashen, Paragon)
  • Archeon the Everchosen (Najeela, the Blade-Blossom)
  • Stardrake (Scourge of the Throne)
  • Ghal Maraz, The Great Shatterer (Loxodon Warhammer)

And finally, the Orks of Warhammer 40K include:

  • Ork Commando (Merciless Executioner)
  • Aggravated Assault
  • Makari the Lucky Grot (Krenko, Tin Street Kingpin)
  • Ghazghkull, Prophet of the Waagh! (Zurgo Helmsmasher)
  • Da Vulcha (Skysovereign, Consul Flagship)

As expected, the Orks tend to run red, but at least each picture features an iconic piece of Orkish lore. There's also a random secret card in each pack that PleasantKenobi said was "so good."

Pre-orders for Secret Lair Drop Series: Warhammer 40,000 arrive on October 17, so mark your calendars. In case you missed it, Magic recently announced another Secret Lair series that'll star Hasbro's Transformers. The collection will have 15 double-sided cards that "convert" between forms. They don't "transform," either due to the fact Magic already has a keyword for transform, but possibly because of a copyright issue with Transformers itself or because Wizards of the Coast just don't want everyone to be confused.
