Not all who wander are lost. This one is lost though, for sure.
How to get
Wandering Monster can be obtained by:
A decently costed Secret; this offers a 3-cost minion at a slight discount, albeit subject to RNG. As such, it should ideally be played early in the game, where your opponent's minions are unlikely to kill a 3-cost minion in a single attack. The ability to intercept attacks on your hero, much like Noble Sacrifice, allows this card to act as situational defense in a pinch.
Note that if you have a Misdirection that was played after this card, it will redirect the attack away from the summoned minion. This may not be desirable as it can direct the attack back into your hero. Similarly, Snake Trap and Venomstrike Trap will trigger when the attack is redirected.
- Wandering Monster was the very first card designed for Kobolds and Catacombs, having been invented during the initial expansion pitch and making it to the release version of the set almost completely untouched.
- The flavor text is a reference to Prophet Velen's summon quote.
