Magic: The Gathering Getting Limited-Edition Cards Featuring Bob Ross ArtworkNovember 25, 2020
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.
