If you are looking for the most fantastic Magic: The Gathering cards that have ever appeared outside of Unglued … here they are. This is a new set of Magic: The Gathering Secret Lair called “Our show is on Friday, can you do it?” This set expands and distorts the standard layout of Magic cards in general. In these five cards, you will be forgiven if you do not recognize that they are actually Magic cards from the start.
The set “Our show is on Friday, can you do it?” is a limited edition and made as part of the “Secret Lair” gallery. Wizards of the Coast makes these sets with collectors in mind, selling them to people who could open packages and put the cards directly in protective boxes.
In this case, we have five cards made by some really incredible artists. Alexis Ziritt, Jermaine Rogers, Sam McKenzie, Ian Jepson and Jeff Soto. Each of them agreed to make a card in their own style in a way that has Gig Posters in mind.
Gig Posters are pieces of design and / or art created by an artist and / or designer, designed to provide information about a musical event. You can also hear them called “rock posters” – and they have been celebrating individual commitments in music and parties for decades.
The cards in this tiny baby set are all “hand drawn”. This does not necessarily mean that each individual card is marked and painted, nor does it mean that each element on each card is made by hand. Instead, it indicates that the artist and / or designer of each card had a direct hand in organizing almost all the elements on the card.
Where a classic Magic: The Gathering card has a large part dedicated to standardized elements specifically aimed at streamlining the game, these cards go wild. The title of the card is designed by the artist, the mana costs are illustrated by the artist or the fonts on most cards are chosen by the artist and placed by the artist.
The colors are all chosen by the artist, and each card acts as a tribute not only to the environment, but to the various versions of the cards that were created over the years in which they were in play. One of the oldest in this set, “Wrath of God” has been a card since the game’s original release in 1993 – it has been made and remade with different arts for 28 years!
With this set of cards, the user obtains Degree of Pain, Bet, Lord of Nature, Preordination and Wrath of God, each drawn by hand, each in what is probably his most extravagant visual form ever produced. The release date for this set is August 25, 2021 and the sale date is April 26, 2021.
