Magic: The Gathering publisher Wizards of the Coast is celebrating the anniversary of its Secret Lair program with a super-drop of a ton of special new cards, available only at starting Nov. 20 at 9 a.m. PT and lasting until Dec. 26 at 11:59 p.m. PT. Our personal favorites of the lineup are the Jurassic Park crossover cards, featuring the legendary creature that is Dr. Ian Malcolm, but if he’s not your speed, there’s also a collection of Lara Croft (Tomb Raider) cards in the Secretversary Superdrop this year.

Magic’s crossover with Jurassic Park was part of the Universes Beyond series; Jeff Goldblum’s character was featured alongside several stompy dinosaurs in the Lost Caverns of Ixalan set that came to retail on Nov. 17.

Of course, this stunning Goldblum array is not the only set of cards available in this upcoming drop, although it may be the sexiest — you be the judge. Next on the docket are these five dinosaur-tastic cards, also from Lost Caverns of Ixalan:

Lost Caverns of Ixalan wasn’t just about Jurassic Park cards, though. Here are five other cards from that collection, to be included in the upcoming superdrop:

Speaking of lost caverns, who might you expect to explore something like that? Lara Croft, obviously, who has her own set of featured cards in this collection:

This diverse drop of cards also includes sets with illustrations by specific artists, including a vibrant line-art set by Jesse LeDoux, a colorful set of Mycosynthwave cards by Signalnoise, the watercolor vibes of the Paradise Frost set by Elk64, the Tales of the Timestoppers set featuring the muted surrealism of Micha Huigen, and lastly, the creepy medieval Through the Wormhole set illustrated by Dani Pendergast.

Players who make their Secret Lair Secretversary Superdrop purchase from Nov. 20-27 will get 10% off, and those who spend over $200 will get The Locust God as a promo gift.
