With the announcement of the major MTG set releases, Wizards of the Coast also announced the 2022 roster of Secret Lair and Universes Beyond products. These sets promise to be some of the most interesting twists on Magic: The Gathering rules and mechanics.

So, without further ado, let’s dive into some of the strange and wonderful magic coming our way.

Secret Lair: Fortnite

Definitely the most controversial of the upcoming releases, Secret Lair: Fortnite is going to be all exclusive cards based on the battle royale style game.

Thus far, we have no idea what these cards are going to look like, nor their abilities. But, if nothing else, we should expect some strange dance spells. Maybe some blue enchantments?

Secret Lair: Street Fighter

It’s time to choose your challenger! Street Fighter is entering into the Secret Lair arena! Get ready to take to the streets with Chun-Li, Ryu, and Ken to destroy any opponent who dares step in your way.

This set promises some familiar enemies, allies, and special moves. And remember – when all else fails…


Universes Beyond – Warhammer 40,000


You’re hearing this right. It’s time to welcome the bullet storm that is Warhammer 40,000 into the world of Magic. Join the Space Marines as you rip through… well, anything that moves. Wipe out endless enemies with the power of only your muscle and your machine gun.

What should we expect in this set? I am just hoping for some Chaos Marines and more skulls for the Skull Throne…

Universes Beyond – Lord of the Rings: Tales of Middle Earth

Stepping from one fantasy world to another, it’s time to enter the world of Middle Earth! Explore the land, from the Shire to Mordor, discovering old friends and vicious enemies. Will you simply walk to Mordor? Or will you ride a caragor, tearing through legions of orcs?

I expect we will be seeing some familiar faces in this set. Frodo, Gandalf, Aragorn, Sauron – the list is endless. Just be careful how you play, adventurer. The fate of Middle Earth is in your hands.
