Magic: The Gathering’s latest Secret Lair drops five limited-edition psychedelic slime cards
Magic: The Gathering’s latest Secret Lair has dropped five cards you might want to handle with gloves.
The Prime Slime Secret Lair set includes five cards themed around slime, ooze and other such gunkiness.
The collection features legendary creature The Mimeoplasm, which can exile (remove them from play) two creature cards from players’ graveyards as it enters the battlefield. By doing so, the 0/0 creature becomes a copy of one of the cards with +1/+1 counters on it equal to the power of the other exiled card.
The creature is joined by three more ooze creatures: Necrotic Ooze, Acidic Slime and Scavenging Ooze, which have the power to gain all activated abilities from other cards in graveyards, destroy a target artifact, enchant or land card when played, and exile a creature card from a graveyard to gain +1/+1 and one life for the cost of one green mana, respectively.
The last card in the Secret Lair pack is Voidslime, an instant spell that counters a spell or ability for one green and two blue mana.
All of the cards feature borderless alternative artwork by illustrator Wizard of Barge styled with vivid psychedelic pinks, purples and turquoise colours. Wizards of the Coast has confirmed that none of the cards are foil; previous Secret Lair drops received some criticism from players as the result of their foil finish causing the limited-edition cards to bend and curl.
Magic: The Gathering’s Prime Slime Secret Lair drop will only be available until 5pm BST on Wednesday August 19th. The set costs $30/£30, and is expected to ship between October 15th and November 30th.
