Several other drops in the Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair Secretversary also feature guest artists.

The technosynth work of artist James White aka Signalnoise is showcased in Mycosynthwave.. Micha Huigan's expressive painterly art brings a new look to various time-altering cards in Tales of the Time Stoppers.

But arguably the biggest draw in this Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair Secretversary Superdrop are cards based on Jurassic World.

Each card in the Jurassic World Secret Lairs is based on cards in the upcoming set: Lost Caverns of Ixalan. The first of these, Life Breaks Free, is themed around dinosaurs breaching containment. Said dinos include the classic T-Rex and Velociraptor, as well as the Spinosaurus and Indominus Rex.

The second of these Jurassic World drops centers on a single scientist: Dr. Ian Malcolm. This drop includes cards like Tasha's Hideous Laughter rebranded to Malcolm's Mercurial Mirth, and Tasigar, the Golden Fang reimagined as Ian, Convalescent Charmer.

Every one of the above mentioned in the Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair Secretversary Superdrop is available for pre-order today thru December 26.
