Magic: The Gathering, the most popular Trading Card Game in the world, has been getting fancy with its collaborations lately. The newer Universes Beyond line has already allowed MTG to collaborate with titans such as Lord of the Rings and Fortnite and will be collaborating with titles like Assassin’s Creed, Final Fantasy, and Marvel in the near future.

Recently, a unique collaboration was unveiled for the TCG, surprising many fans. If you’re a Hatsune Miku enthusiast, this MTG product is one to watch, regardless of your gaming preferences.

Secret Lair products are a collection of cards that have a special theme that connects them all together. Typically, ordering a Secret Lair means receiving anywhere between 3-7 cards with special artwork. Occasionally, powerful reprints can also be featured in these products, essentially allowing players to get access to expensive cards for a bargain.

For the next Spring Superdrop, a crossover with Hatsune Miku has been announced. This Vocaloid pop star has become all the rage in Japan. Anime crossovers have been becoming more and more common, with a recently announced Cowboy Bebop crossover proceeding this one. Lots of Manga artists have been featured in other crossovers as well, so more Anime-esque crossovers are likely to be expected in the future.

As far as the cards themselves go, this Secret Lair’s secondary market value is a little bit lacking. Chandra’s Ignition is the most expensive reprint here, coming in at $6 for nonfoil and $15 for foil. Azusa, Lost but Seeking is another good reprint (with a very charming skin), but the card has been reprinted to death in recent sets, which has dropped its secondary market value somewhat. The other reprints, while not worth much, still have that unique Hatsune Miku charm, which means the secondary market value of the reprints themselves may not matter that much.

See, Secret Lair products released by Wizards of the Coast have recently switched to a limited-print model. To speed up shipping times, Secret Lairs are no longer printed on demand and have a limited quantity. This results in some Secret Lairs selling out extremely quickly.

If the Hatsune Miku Secret Lair follows the trend of other limited print Secret Lairs, the cards within could become highly sought after, regardless of their reprint value. With the potential interest from non-MTG players, the demand could exceed our expectations.

As we eagerly anticipate the release of the MTG X Hatsune Miku Crossover, we can only wait and see what this unique collaboration has in store for us.
