Transfer Student is an interesting new Hearthstone card from Scholomance Academy; list of all effects revealed

Having announced Scholomance Academy and revealed some of the new cards, Blizzard has raised eyebrows with one of the latter. Transfer Student is a 2/2 minion that is played with different effects depending on which board the game is being played on.

So far, we know that when Transfer Student is played on the Saviors of Uldum board, it gains Reborn. Blizzard’s Alec Dawson and Liv Breeden confirmed that the effects Transfer Student has will be based on the board in play.

We also learned that Blizzard hasn’t restricted Transfer Students effects to the current Standard Boards in play. When played in Wild format, Transfer Student will have different effects for each of those Boards too.

It certainly adds yet another layer of RNG to Hearthstone, however, as a 2/2 2-cost minion, Transfer Student is a decent early game minion even without keywords.

Thanks to some clever people on Reddit, we now have a full list of all effects for all boards. Also, credit to Hearthstone Top Decks for compiling the list. Standard Boards are in bold.
