The Magic: The Gathering preorders keep on coming, despite WotC's production and shipping delays that have recently prevented them from delivering Crimson Vow Set Boosters to retailers for the their upcoming prereleases (see "'Innistrad: Crimson Vow' Prereleases"). The October Superdrop features the previously teased Secret Lari X Stranger Things set (see "'Secret Lair: Stranger Things' for 'Magic: The Gathering'"), which comes with an array mechanically unique cards with the artistic-renderings of the Stranger Things cast on them.
Several of the legendary creatures in the Stranger Things drop have a new Friends Forever mechanic printed on them. This mechanic allows a player to use two creatures with Friends Forever as their commander, which is similar to the Partner mechanic from previous sets. Additionally, it is also notable that A-List cast member Winona Ryder, who plays Joyce Byers on the show, is not depicted on a card in this set.
