Wizards of the Coast and Riot Games Partner for 'Magic: The Gathering' x 'Arcane' Crossover

Wizards of the Coast has unveiled two upcoming Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair card drops in partnership with Riot Games. The collaboration celebrates the upcoming release of Riot Games’ new Netflix series Arcane, a prequel to the League of Legends game.

Available for streaming on Netflix now, Arcane, which took six years to make the first season of, follows two sisters pitted against one another as they fight on opposite sides of a dystopian war. The game developer is currently working on the second season of the animated series, Riot CEO Nicolo Laurent recently shared. While this coming season is expected to be made on a shorter timeline, it won’t be debuting in 2022.

The limited-edition cards will drop in both foil and non-foil sets. A sneak peek of the cards given to fans depicted key locations and scenes from Arcane, including the imagery of the show’s rival cities, Piltover and the Undercity.

“Bringing fan-favorite brands into the Magic Multiverse is an exciting way for us to bring Magic to life in bold new ways for lifelong fans and first-time players,” said Chris Cocks, President of Wizards of the Coast.

The Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair x Arcane and Secret Lair x Arcane: Lands cards will be available for preorder beginning November 29 on the official Secret Lair website. Non-foil cards are priced at $30 USD and foil cards go for $40 USD.
