Secret Lair: Black is Magic
Secret Lair is a print-on-demand series of unique and alternate cards that are available for a limited period of time. Since its introduction in 2019, Wizards of the Coast have released Secret Lair drops to support causes such as Extra Life and World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts for International Women’s Day.
Black Is Magic, is curated by noted game designer Sydney Adams, focusing on Black artists and peers. From Adams, writing on the official Magic: The Gathering website:
“No matter who you are, you can celebrate Black History. You don’t have to be Black to enjoy Black stories. Black stories are human stories, and human stories deserve to be told. So, we’ll write them, and draw them, speak them, and play with them. Until everyone realizes that Black is not a stereotype, a trauma, or a threat.
Black is magic.”
All proceeds from the Black is Magic Secret Lair drop will benefit Black Girls CODE.
Black Girls CODE aims to increase the number of women of color in the digital space by empowering girls of color between ages seven and seventeen to become innovators in STEM fields, leaders in their communities, and builders of their own futures through exposure to computer science and technology.
The Black is Magic Secret Lair features the following cards:
1x Sol Ring
1x Shalai, Voice of Plenty
