In a continuation of their ongoing collaboration together, Wizards of the Coast has announced that Post Malone is getting their very own Secret Lair Drop. Appearing on episodes of Game Knights, in advertisements for Wizards, and even having hosted their own tournament, there’s no question that Post Malone is one of the biggest celebrities in MTG. Subsequently, it’s no surprise that Post Malone is being properly immortalized in card form via a Secret Lair Drop. Arriving as part of the October Superdrop, this Secret Lair Drop is shaping up to be one to remember. Somewhat surprisingly, however, not every MTG player is sold on this latest venture from Wizards.

As astute players may be aware, this isn’t the first time Post Malone has been immortalized as an MTG card. Previously Posty made their MTG debut as Post the Enchanter. This one-of-a-kind foil version of Zur the Enchanter was specially created by Wizards and artist Chase Stone. Given its exclusivity, Post Malone even got this card PSA graded. However, it comically only received a score of 8. In a Whatnot Livestream, Post noted that he shouldn’t have played with it before getting it graded. While this was a generous move from Wizards, players who wanted their own Post Malone MTG cards were left lacking. 

Thankfully, later this month, that is all about to change. Thanks to Post Malone’s very own Secret Lair Drop, MTG players worldwide can get their hands on an immortalized MTG icon. So long as they don’t mind paying the almost extortionate shipping fees, that is. Dubbed the “Backstage Pass” Drop, only one card has been spoiled so far Post, Son of Rich. Similarly to Post the Enchanter, Post, Son of Rich, is an alternate version of a Commander favorite K’rrik, Son of Yawgmoth. Given Post Malone’s penchant for playing Commander, it’s likely that the entire Secret Lair Drop will feature offbeat Commander favorites.

Alongside the Backstage Pass Secret Lair Drop, Post Malone is also getting a Secret Lair Lands Drop. Similarly available within the October Superdrop, this land bundle contains precisely what the name suggests; basic land. Taking inspiration from Post Malone’s tattoos, these basic lands feature somewhat unorthodox and divisive designs. As seen in the Forest above, each land in the Post Malone Lands collection also has flavor text. Handwritten, or rather drawn, by Posty themselves, this flavor text is an unusual but definitely wholesome design for an MTG card. 

In an interview with Rolling Stone, Mark Heggen, WotC’s Product Architect, stated that “we’re a pretty energetic group, but Post put us to shame” with their eclectic designs. While the aesthetic may be somewhat jarring for those who aren’t fans of signed cards, there’s no doubting Post’s love for MTG. “It was wild to see just how deeply Post knows and loves the game,” Heggen explained. “In our first meeting, he casually mentioned a few old cards that I had to go look up. I was like ‘Ooooh this guy knows his stuff.’”

Divided Opinion

Post Malone may be a beloved figure thanks to their appearances on Game Knights. However, this Secret Lair Drop hasn’t seen universal appeal. According to Rolling Stone, Mark Heggen even noted that “Malone probably wasn’t the collaborator fans saw coming for this campaign.” After first being revealed on the MagicTCG subreddit, many MTG players jested that “I deadass thought I was on r/magicthecirclejerking when I saw this.” Meanwhile, other players poked fun at the card’s unusual name and its implications following the controversial 30th Anniversary Edition. “‘Son of Rich’ is exactly the market Hasbro seems to be targeting nowadays,” u/Absolutionis stated. For reference, this isn’t an unusually spicy joke from Wizards, as Post Malone’s father is called Richard. 

Similarly, the Post Malone Forest also saw some criticism from the community. “That’s certainly one of the forests of all time,” u/Infinite_Bananas stated. In a similar vein, u/BrianMcFluffy simply said, “outjerked once again.” Thankfully, not all MTG players were vehemently against these unique Secret Lair Drops. “I actually really like this as goofy as it is – if they do the old foil frame properly like the LGS Sol Ring/30th anniversary prerelease promos, this will be great,” u/Fauxparty stated. Additionally, some Post Malone fans are excited at the prospect of owning cards that feature Posty’s autograph. 

For players who are looking forward to this Secret Lair Drop, thankfully, there isn’t too long of a wait. Both the Secret Lair x Post Malone: Backstage Pass and Secret Lair x Post Malone: The Lands will be available as part of the October Superdrop, which will be available to preorder from the 17th of October. Regular editions of these Secret Lair Drops will be available for $29.99, with foil editions for $39.99
