Hearthstone Transfer Student - all effects with different game boards

We'll help you school your opponents.

Hearthstone's new card Transfer Student is a 2 mana 2/2 who changes depending on the game board being played on. Here's all the possible effects of the new Scholomance Academy minion.

Transfer Student - all effects with different game boards

Huge shoutout to u/deevee12 on Reddit for testing all the Transfer Students out!

Remember, only boards currently in Standard format will be available while playing Standard. They'll all be possible in Wild though. For example, you won't be able to use the One Night In Karazhan effect in Standard because the expansion is not in the format so you won't ever play on that board.

A lot of the Transfer Student versions are pretty strong though - here's what to expect (* = available in Standard Format):
