Wizards of the Coast is collaborating with the rights holders of Bob Ross's works to select two paintings representing the five landscapes of Magic The Gathering, depicted on the basic lands: plains, swamps, forests, islands and mountains.

In a recent Statement to Vice, Wizard Sr. Creative Art Director Tom Jenkot said:

“I thought the swamp would be the hardest, but it turned out to be plain. I had to fool a bit with one of the plains by enlarging the painting. "

Magic The Gathering players will be able to use these limited edition cards to cast their spells. One of the most difficult cards to represent with a Bob Ross painting was Evolving Wilds, which also allows players to retrieve a basic land of any color from their deck; still on this issue, Jenkot said:

"While there were not many options for the swamps, there were some obvious choices. The choices of the island, the mountain and the forest were plentiful. But the biggest problem was finding a Bob Ross painting that worked for 'Evolving Wilds'. The painting has a forest, a mountain, water, plains, as well as an otherworldly glow on the underside of the wave to give a sense of 'evolution'. "

The Secret Lair of Magic The Gathering dedicated to Bob Ross, will be in limited edition and available for a limited time and will be available for pre-order starting November 30.
