Magic: The Gathering Getting Limited-Edition Cards Featuring Bob Ross Artwork

A new Magic the Gathering card Secret Lair set will feature artwork painted by the legendary Bob Ross.The new ‘Happy Little Gathering’ set is part of the limited edition Secret Lair series, which offers one-of-a-kind collectable sets from unique artists that reimagine famous Magic the Gathering cards.

As reported by Vice, Wizards of the Coast has partnered with the Bob Ross estate to create a set of Land cards featuring environmental artwork from the soothing painter, who passed in 1995. Magic players will also be able to use these collectible cards in-game, and a recent leak suggests they may be brought to Magic the Gathering: Arena in the near future.

The card set is available in foil and non-foil and will also feature an ‘Evolving Wilds’ card that features a variety of biomes from the Bob Ross back catalogue. You’ll be able to pre-order the Happy Little Gathering set for a limited time only, from November 30 through December 14, 2020.

Bob Ross has become something of an internet icon in recent years. The painter – whose Joy of Painting TV show was first braodcast in the ’80s – has since become an action figure, a playable character in Smite, and the subject of a Twitch Marathon that garnered 5.6 million viewers.

Back in September, we reported that Dungeons & Dragons would be getting its own Magic the Gathering set in Q3 2021.
