My Flanking Strike is a normal card, but it summoned a golden wolf. I have never seen a non-golden card summon a golden minion before... Is this because the Northshire Cleric card is triggering the wolf to spawn somehow? I'm not sure how this interaction works, or even if this is a unique case of a non-golden card summoning a golden minion. Is there anything else in the game that does this?
It's because you used your flanking strike on a golden character, in this case a northshire cleric. It works the same way with UI and presumably portals that can be targeted. As long as one of the target or original card is golden, the token will be golden
