Bob Ross may no longer be with us, but his calming presence and whimsical approach to painting are certainly still very much alive today. And as a big fan of his work, Wizards of the Coast has announced a new Secret Lair drop for Magic: The Gathering containing limited edition cards adorned with memorable landscapes and vistas, brushed into existence by the artist’s talented hand(s).
The set, which goes up for pre-order next week, will be available in two variants (foil and non-foil) and contains several lands for each color. For collectors not necessarily familiar with what that references, lands are cards integral to every Magic deck and serve as a replenishable resource required to cast creature and/or sorcery spells. Five colors (red, blue, black, green and white) are available in total, with each traditionally being themed after a certain group of fantasy creature (i.e. demons, elves, dragons).
While Wizards has yet to confirm how much money you’ll be required to part ways with in order to secure a copy of this Secret Lair, previous drops suggest the final number will be somewhere in the region of $30-50 USD. You can check out the cards for yourself via the gallery below, along with the list of what’s included:
- 2x Plains, swamp, forest, island and mountain cards
- 1x Evolving Wilds

It’s worth noting that, like The Walking Dead‘s highly controversial Secret Lair earlier this year, all the cards in this bundle will be legal to play in a tournament setting – a decision unlikely to stir up any trouble, considering these lands behave identically to any standard version found in modern booster packs.
Magic: The Gathering‘s Bob Ross Secret Lair is available for pre-order on November 30th until December 14th, at which point it’ll be gone for good.
