New Secret Lair of 'The Greatest Magic: The Gathering Cards of All Time, Ever' Revealed

As part of their 2020 April's Fools joke, Wizards of the Coast has unveiled a new Secret Lai​r product called Wizards of the Coast Presents: After Great Deliberation, We Have Compiled and Remastered the Greatest Magic: The Cards of All Time, Ever!. It features four brand-new foil full-art treatments of "Storm Crow", "Goblin Snowman", "Mudhole", and "Squire".

Here are the artists of the cards that will probably never be made available:

Goblin Snowman with art by Victor Adame Minguez

Of course, these four cards are nowhere close to the greatest Magic cards, ever. "Storm Crow" has been a meme in the Magic community, and the rest of the cards are just as bad.

You can even check out this joke product in WotC's official Secret Lair product page.

It even comes with a full product description:

We dug through YEARS of Magic history to try and pinpoint the most thrilling, exciting, jaw-dropping, astonishing, interesting, provocative, stimulating, and other-words-we found-in-the-thesaurus cards from throughout the entirety of the game. These super-duper full-art cards feature illustrations by the IMMENSELY TALENTED and EXTREMELY POWERFUL Victor Adame Minguez, Noah Bradley, Jesper Ejsing, and Titus Lunter.    ¡CUIDADO! Foolishness of this magnitude has the potential to cause what experts refer to as a "Goofiness Cascade." Physically printing these cards would result in a hilarious tear in the fabric of reality, causing the very concept of time, Magic, and Taco Tuesday to become completely meaningless. For that reason, we will not be printing this Secret Lair at this time (but they'll be available in WPN stores sometime in the future). However, since you have your wallet open…   

Instead of putting this Secret Lair on sale, Wizards took the opportunity to remind MTG fans to donate to the American Red Cross.

However, if you really want to get a hold of this Secret Lair, Wizards is planning to release them in the future."After we've all safely gotten past this outbreak, we'll print and provide these Secret Lair drops to WPN stores at no charge, to use at their discretion," Wizards said. "We aren't yet sure when that will be or how stores will distribute them, but it'll happen."
