MTGs Secretversary Superdrop For 2023 Is Loaded

2023 is nearing its end, and WOTC intends to close the year with a bang. The MTG Secretversary Superdrop 2023 has nine secret lair drops and a promo you won't want to miss. The Superdrop comes just in time for the holidays and has something for everyone, including Jurassic Park and Tomb Raider cards, Lost Caverns of Ixalan showcase cards, and much more. Let's break them down!

Secretversary Superdrop 2023

You can buy each (or all) of the drops below here - SecretLair.Wizards.com, and until 12/27/23, you can get 10% off your order. The Secretversary Superdrop will be sold until December 26 at 11:59 p.m. PT.

The Locust God Promo Card

sld-903-the-locust-god

If you spend $200 or more on a single order, you'll receive a promo version of The Locust Godimage along with your order "while supplies last." The card is pretty sweet and is a small bonus for someone already spending the requisite $200. If you weren't going to drop that much, I don't know if this will entice you to.

Jurassic World: Dr. Ian Malcom

sld-1394-laboratory-maniacsld-1395-tasha-s-hideous-laughtersld-1396-tasigur-the-golden-fang

sld-1398-egg

This drop is all about Jurassic Park's charming scientist, Dr. Ian Malcom, who appears on five reskinned cards. There are some pretty cool card choices (at least in my opinion) getting an Ian Malcolm treatment here. I'm unsure how I feel about calling Tasha's Hideous Laughter "Malcolm's Mercurial Mirth," but you can hear the flavor text.

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
  • Rainbow foil: $39.99

Jurassic World: Life Breaks Free

sld-1393-regisaur-alpha

You couldn't have an MTG Jurassic Park crossover without some dinosaurs; this drop brings the dinos. And the reprint selection is on point - Etali, Rampaging Ferocidonimage and Regisaur Alpha are all great choices. What's a little questionable is the dinosaur species given to some of the cards.

For example, Regisaur Alpha is skinned as a Spinosaurus when the original card is a Regisaurus. To make things worse, Etali, Primal Stormimage is a Spinosaurus. And instead of skinning it as such, it's a T-Rex. The same problems are present on Polyraptorimage. The original art, name, and card's ability represent a smaller raptor. Meanwhile, the reskin makes this an Indominus Rex, which is a T-Rex. It's not the end of the world, but it looks pretty avoidable.

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
    Rainbow foil: $39.99

Showcase: The Lost Caverns of Ixalan

sld-1409-captain-lannery-stormsld-1410-admiral-beckett-brasssld-1411-elenda-the-dusk-rosesld-1412-kumena-tyrant-of-orazca

sld-1413-vona-butcher-of-magan

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
  • Rainbow foil: $39.99

In a brand-new showcase style, this drop has five popular creatures from the original Ixalan block. If you were playing MTG for Ixalan or Rivals of Ixalan, these will surely take you back. Each one of the OG tribes (minus dinosaurs) is present and accounted for as well. So, regardless of whether you fancy Pirates, Vampires, or Merfolk, you're covered here. And if you rep Dinosaurs, you've got a whole drop above.

Through The Wormhole

sld-1492-arcane-signetsld-1493-lightning-greavessol ringsld-1495-thought-vessel

sld-1496-command-tower

"Through The Wormhole" features five commander staples styled in a space theme. I really like these: The cards are playable, the art is incredible, and the flavor texts lend a lot to the drop. How is there a Command Towerimage in space? "Cloistered deep in the heart of a distant nebula, the tower awaits its next master." Sol Ringimage says, "Forged within the star itself, the ring harnesses its stellar energy for an unfathomable purpose." And Lightning Greavesimage shows someone rollerskating on the rings of a planet.

To me, this is precisely what secret lair drops should be!

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
  • Galaxy foil: $49.99

Tales Of The Time Stoppers

sld-1497-beacon-of-tomorrowssld-1498-nexus-of-fatesld-1499-time-reversalsld-1500-time-stop

Tales of the Time Stoppers has four cards representing time manipulation, such as taking extra turns or ending the turn. Many of the extra turns spells here see play in a few formats (anyone else remember Nexus of Fateimage in Standard with Wilderness Reclamationimage?), and Time Stopimage is right on theme.

The art style for the drop is old-school comic books, which look phenomenal. If you miss ordering this one, you'll wish to travel back in time and grab one. This will likely be one of the more sought-after drops in the 2023 Secretversary lineup.

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
  • Rainbow foil: $39.99

Gift Wrapped

sld-1463-giver-of-runessld-1464-distant-melodysld-1465-cathartic-reunionsld-1466-moment-s-peace

sld-1467-homeward-path

The "Gift Wrapped" drop might not have the most potent cards, but if you love Christmas or want a nice gift for an MTG player, this is really cool. Each card is borderless, has art that makes it look like a wrapped present, and has some great flavor texts. Overall, WOTC did a solid job on a well-thought-out drop here.

While the cards aren't necessarily bombs, they aren't duds. Each one sees play in a variety of various decks.

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
  • Rainbow foil: $39.99

Paradise Frost

sld-1473-snow-covered-plainssld-1474-snow-covered-islandsld-1475-snow-covered-swampsld-1476-snow-covered-mountain

sld-1477-snow-covered-forest

This drop features a set of five full-art basic snow lands, showing an idyllic winter landscape. However, they aren't inhospitable in the least. On the contrary, each one shows trees with foliage and wildlife right at home in the winter wonderland. The Swiss/Brazilian artist ELK64 created some fantastic artwork for these lands, too.

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
  • Rainbow foil: $39.99

Mycosynthwave

sld-1433-mycosynth-golemsld-1434-mycosynth-latticesld-1435-mycosynth-wellspring

Mycosynthwave is the drop we never knew we needed. They seem to exist within some futuristic, neon, cyberpunk world where the pulse of everything feels like a piece of ceaseless funk music. Secret Lair drops are a dime-a-dozen these days, and this manages to stick out from the rest and feel unique.

"Stop the party? Does not compute." Words to live by Mycosynth Golem.

Price:

  • Non-foil: $29.99
  • Rainbow foil: $39.99

Tomb Raider

sld-1505-shadowspearsld-1506-academy-ruinssld-1507-treasure

The MTG Tomb Raider crossover brings up a total of seven cards. Five are reskinned versions of existing Magic cards, one is a treasure token, and one is a brand-new, mechanically unique Lara Croft card. Naturally, it's a legendary creature and rewards you for playing legendary artifacts and lands. And makes treasure tokens. So, if you play Lara as a commander, you can play every other card in the drop in your deck. Well played, Wizards.

Price:

  • Non-foil: $39.99
  • Traditional foil: $49.99
