The cards are being released as part of Magic’s Secret Lair series, which are limited print products with five cards with alternate art you won’t get anywhere else.
Prime Slime includes five cards from Magic’s History: Acidic Slime, The Mimeoplasm, Necrotic Ooze, Scavenging Ooze, and Voidslime.
But yesterday’s Secret Lair surprise drop, “Prime Slime,” takes the cake in my opinion with its extremely punk aesthetic and lighthearted chaos.
Secret Lair drops only have an extremely short window where they’re available, so if you want to pick up a set of these cards, you only have until tomorrow morning, August 19th, to do it.
The game leans on a much more traditional epic fantasy painting style for most cards and sets, tailoring it to whatever setting they may be in.
These cards are most likely to find homes in Commander Decks, which is a more casual format of the game.
Commander lends itself to personalization, customization, and flair, so having such unique art built around a slime theme is a knockout success in my opinion.
