izards of the Coast unveiled its 2022 Magic: The Gathering holiday promo, “Chaos Wrap,” as well as teased an incoming Transformers-themed Secret Lair. It’s once again that time of year where WotC sends out a holiday promo to various partners and retail stores. This year the promo is a riff on the “Chaos Warp” card entitled “Chaos Wrap”:
Chaos Wrap (2R)
The owner of target permanent shuffles it into their library. Then they look at the top card of their library and may wrap it. If it’s a permanent card, they may put it onto the battlefield. Otherwise, they put it onto the battlefield face down as a 4/4 red Present creature. (To wrap a card, put it inside lots of sleeves. If it would be dealt damage or destroyed, remove a sleeve from it instead.)
WotC also teased a new Transformers-themed drop set release via the Secret Lair twitter account (see below). The tweet features a shadowy picture of Optimus Prime with the phrase “Till All Are Won 12.05.2022.”
