Strategy[edit]

Transfer Student's effect depends on the game's board, which is randomized at the start of the game and cannot be controlled by players. It can range from having a few keywords attached to completely changing the game, but it will always stay with a 2-mana 2/2 body without tribe synergy. It is very unreliable for Quests or synergy decks, as being able to contribute with your deck depends on having the right board. Due to each variant of Transfer Student being different for each battlefield, they have completely different uses. Some variants resemble existing minions, while others can be powercreeps or more reliable versions, and some are scaled-down equivalents of effects previously unique to Legendary minions. However, if your enemy understands Transfer Student's variants, they may be able to predict what it will be used for.

Quotes[edit]

Summon
Home is where the wagon is.
Attack
Take a trip!

Trivia[edit]

  • Transfer Student is the first card to directly interact with the otherwise cosmetic Battlefield.
  • This is one of the few non-Legendary minions to feature entrance music, the others being Lowly Squire and Lance Carrier. However, Transfer Student's music is sampled from an in-game song and has a unique entry animation, akin to Legendary minions.
  • Transfer Student has icons from other Blizzard Games on his bag, (Heroes of the Storm, Star Craft, WoW, Reaper from Overwatch)
  • Transfer Student is the sixth card available in Play mode before the release of the expansion it belonged to.
  • Transfer Student's flavor text references Oh, the Places You'll Go! by Dr. Seuss.
  • When Transfer Student was released in July 2020, the developers stated that when the card rotates out of Standard into Wild, it was planned that it would function as a "Discover a card from the set which the battlefield came from" for new battlefields and expansions to be released.[1][2]
