There is a military tactic that warriors love called the hammer and anvil. You divide your army into two forces, the slower and stronger of which pins down your opponent, holding them in place—the anvil—while the faster force maneuvers into a flanking position—the hammer—and then bring the two together . If you’ve played Total War: Warhammer 3 as Slaanesh, you’ll know that it’s an army without an anvil. Slaanesh is all hammer, all the time.

So it’s fitting that Keeper of Secrets, a greater demon of Slaanesh, appears as a red card in Magic: The Gathering’s Warhammer 40,000 crossover (opens in new tab). Red is the traditional color of Magic’s most aggressive cards, and usually those with attack-boosting keywords like haste and first strike.
