Article at a Glance

One of the most exciting Secret Lair Drops coming up is the Street Fighter Secret Lair. We’ve been treated today to some previews of art for this drop, as planned by Wizards, and the art is AWESOME! But shortly after these got previewed, the entire dropped was leaked! NOTE: THESE HAVE NOT YET BEEN CONFIRMED BY WIZARDS OF THE COAST AND COULD BE FAKE!


From a tweet by @lxduo84, the entire cast of cards was spoiled, and the art lines up with the previews that we’ve seen. We can’t find the original tweet here, so it might have been deleted. These cards are all mechanically unique, and seem to be pretty crazy. The images are a bit hard to make out, but we’ll list out the text for each of what we can make out.

Notable Design

We said that these cards were crazy, and there’s some really unique design here. First off, E. Honda’s card actually says up to 100 creatures. Each of these cards definitely seem like they can make a very cool and unique Commander deck possible.
