Just in time for Magic World Championships XXVI, Wizards of the Coast has unveiled five more editions of its controversial Secret Lair product.
Secret Lairs are short-term "drop" products that are sold exclusively by WotC as boxed sets, effectively cutting the local gaming stores that are integral to a healthy Magic: The Gathering community out of the picture. Each set is centered around a specific theme, are reportedly printed to demand, and are only available for a very limited time -- in this case, that's from the beginning of Magic World Championships XXVI until its conclusion on Sunday, Feb 16.
The five new Secret Lair drops called "Theros Stargazing" and are all themed around the gods found on the plane of Theros. The five drops feature 15 alternate art foil god cards.
Volume one includes Heliod, God of the Sun, Ioras, God of Victory, and Karametra, God of Harvests.
Volume two includes Thassa, God of the Seas, Ephara, God of the Polis, and Kruphix, God of Horizons.
Volume three consists of Erebos, God of the Dead, Atheros, God of Passage, and Phenax, God of Deception.
Volume four consist of Purpheros, God of the Forge, Mogis, God of Slaughter, and Keranos, God of Storms.
Finally, the fifth volume includes Nylea, God of the Hunt, Xenagos, God of Revels, and Pharika, God of Affliction.
Each drop costs $39.99, though Magic players and collectors can purchase the entire bundle for $199.99 (though currently marked down to $149.99 on the site at the time of this article).
There's no official word if WotC will continue the practice of releasing Secret Lair products, but all indications are that (at least for time time being) they will.
