And King of the Dead’s Negan is now a Magic the Gathering card

Coast Wizards are collaborating for AMC’s Magic the Gathering Secret Layer Drop for The Walking Dead. Earlier this year, MTG players saw their first appearance on a zombie token card, and now the Wizards are announcing that Negan is coming to play for the next limited time set.

The nagan is a 4/3 legendary animal with a very decent ability. When the card is placed on the battlefield, you and the target player select each animal that the player controls, and then that animal – or creature – is sacrificed, and you get a treasure token.

I knew the team at AMC would be great partners, so we gave them a call and everything clicked in place. Did. “

If you want to grab these cards yourself, you’ll have to order them from the Secret Layer site between the October and October, and if you miss out, you won’t be able to retrieve them from the Coast Wizards in the future. It’s a one-time deal.
