Wizards of the Coast unveiled five new Secret Lair Drop Series sets, for Magic: The Gathering, to be offered via direct sale starting the week of June 1.

Similar to the previous Secret Lair Drop Series sets, WotC is offering a Super Summerdrop of five sets: Ornithological Studies, Mountain, Go, The Path Not Traveled, Can You Feel A Heart of Steel?, and Full Sleeves: The Tattoo Pack. Each of these sets contain alternative art reprints of mainstay cards used in various formats, and can be purchased individually on their drop day or as a bundle for $169.95 plus shipping until June 15. The drop days and pricing are as follows:

  • June 1: Full Sleeves: The Tattoo Pack ($29.99)
  • June 2: Can You Feel A Heart of Steel? ($39.99)
  • June 3: The Path Not Traveled ($39.99)
  • June 4: Mountain, Go ($29.99)
  • June 5: Ornithological Studies ($29.99)

Additionally, these drops are preorder-only and inventory is not readily available. WotC anticipates the Super Summerdrop orders to ship near August 15 for US orders and August 30 for European orders (timeline subject to change).

WotC now has seven product lines releasing over the course of 68 days starting June 1: Super Summerdrop, Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition ('Magic: The Gathering' 'Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition' Delayed), Signature Spellbook: Chandra,  Core Set 2021, Magic Arena Starter Kit (see "WotC Reveals 'Magic: The Gathering - Core Set 2021' Products and 'Magic Arena Starter Kit'"), Jumpstart (More Coronavirus Manufacturing Issues for 'Magic: The Gathering'), and Double Masters (see "Wizards of the Coast Unveil 'Magic: The Gathering' 'Double Masters' Set"). Between each of these product lines, there are a total of 20 announced Magic: The Gathering products scheduled for release in this time with the most expensive product sitting at a market presale price of $323.68 (Secret Lair: Ultimate Edition, according to TCGPlayer at time of this article's publication). This is a short period of time to release all of these products successfully, and it will likely test the limits of the average Magic: The Gathering consumer's pocketbook during the COVID-19 pandemic. This also could have an effect on retail spending as store patrons will have to judiciously choose between this cornucopia of Magic: The Gathering releases based on their spending limits, which might make selecting the right inventory numbers for retailers to stock somewhat challenging.
