Any suggestions on how to counter this deck as priest? I tried to entomb the warleaders and/or Murkeye...but somehow come turn 10 I clear the big Murloc summon, just to be killed by the next round of murlocs summons from the second Anyfin.

 

Very frustrating...

Entombs, taunts before their combo and play bit more aggressively.

Unfortunately this style of deck is just a hard counter to decks like Control Warrior and Control Priest that make the game last too many turns naturally. If you give them enough time to draw and setup both Anyfins, you're just going to lose.

The problem with that is that Grimscale Oracle is terrible.

 

You can play the deck with 7 exact Murlocs that create a 30 damage OTK, (2 x Oracle, 2 x Warleader, 2 x Bluegill, Murk-Eye) but that involves playing terrible cards like Grimscale Oracle in your deck. This version is a much reliable strategy that relies on casting Anyfin twice to win, so the first one provides all the Murlocs you need to OTK with the second one. It's MUCH more consistent this way.

Are new versions like Neviilz list better than this one?

The difference of Neviilz's list and Sottle's one is -1 Minibot +1 Hammer of Wrath. The difference is minimal. You can't really say that one is better than the other in this case.

With Neviilz's newest list it's -2 Minibots -1 Hammer of Wrath -1 Acolyte +2 Sludge Belcher +1 Keeper of the Uldaman +1 Humility. Not sure which of his lists you were looking at, but that's the one he plays on stream

I was looking at the older version that is pretty much the same as Sottle's decklist. 

I am not really sure about the Humility since you already run 2 Aldors. Besides, the changes are just tech cards. If your meta is different than Neviilz's, the deck will be worse than Sottle's (which doesn't run many tech cards). You should be the one to decide if the changes he made will be significant in your own meta. My current meta shows that Sottle's deck would have higher winrate.

I have switched 2 Doomsayers with 2 Deathlords, much better against aggro, and to hold on early until u draw heals etc. And the deathrattle is easily countered by your boardclears anyway :)

 

And doomsayers is only good if u play them on turn 2-3, else they are junk :)

Doomsayers work with Aldor against control decks, whereas Deathlord is actually a card that can lose you the game against control matchups.

Yeah Doomsayers are definitely not junk, they're just hard to play effectively. A Doomsayer on 2 is much more effective against Aggro than a Deathlord on 3 most of the time, after that you need to try and create awkward scenarios for your opponent, like playing Doomsayers alongside Murlocs so that they have to choose what to clear, or as positiv mentioned, use Aldor to help it go off.

I wouldn't disenchant anything now, not before the cards in the upcoming xpac are known.

Doomsayer is really important in the deck as an early stalling strategy and because of the synergy with Solemn Vigil. If you do want to replace them, you can look at something like Unstable Ghoul which can do some great work against early aggro decks, and synergise nicely with Acolyte.

Ah. how do you counter poor card draw/mulligan? like i get all the healing cards at the bottom or cards just dont come early enough?

If you don't draw healing cards, you draw cycling cards, murlocs/AcH or survival tools, such as Aldor. These help you survive just like healing cards, or help you win the game.

You draw a card each turn, so you do get cards early. Which specific cards do not "come early enough"?

Hello there,

 

First and foremost as it is my first post here I would like to thank Sottle and the admins of this site for the amazing work. I started HS 3 monthes ago and I all those decks are reallly useful.

 

Regarding this deck, I find that it's really hard to get more than one card from the acolytes. I also noticed that Kolento runs a version without acolytes and has muster in it (also boom but no way I craft this :P). I cut acolytes for hammer of wrath (dmg+draw) what do you think about this?

Murloc Pally is quite hard to play and understand. Combo decks are generally quite complicated and it takes a lot of practice to master the deck, or at least have 50% WR with it. So, you can either play the deck more, or switch to another deck if that's not really what you want.

      If you're not a fan of playing huge Legendary minions every turn, then you may need to rethink your approach to Hearthstone.
       
      The Hearthstone team is on a roll with Tavern Brawls! After Top 2, one of the most well-received Tavern Brawls in recent memory, this week's Tavern Brawl is titled  "Cloneball!".
       

       
      Each player's deck is filled with four copies of random Legendary minions, including minions from the Wild format. Players will also receive a number of copies of "Offensive Play", a card which reduces the cost of your next Legendary minion by 3 Mana, as well as all other copies of that same Legendary in your hand:
       

       
      Though it's difficult to game plan for a specific strategy as the Legendary minions you receive appear to be random, I thought it was pretty sweet to play Loatheb into Onyxia into Onyxia into Onyxia. Slamming huge Legendary minions onto the battlefield is one of the most fun things to do in all of Hearthstone, and you'll get to do it again and again in this week's brawl!
      As is true with most brawls where the class cards aren't incredibly important, Warlock is strong by virtue of Life Tap. However, Paladin has some of the strongest Legendary minions in the history of the Hearthstone, so you could also try to high-roll a deck full of Tirion Fordrings and Wickerflame Burnbristles.

      The targeted cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms, Dark Pact, Crystal Core and Naga Sea Witch.
      The community's prayers have been answered as nerfs for six problematic cards have been announced.
      UPDATE - The nerfs went live earlier today. You can disenchant the affected cards and get full dust value until June 5, 2018.
      Four of these cards are Spiteful Summoner, Possessed Lackey, Call to Arms and Naga Sea Witch. Even though there were a lot of interesting suggestions as to how these cards could be handled, Team 5 chose the simplest, yet elegant, way to weaken them: increase their mana cost. The first three cards will have their mana cost increased by 1, whereas Naga Sea Witch will jump to an extreme 8 mana!
      Dark Pact will now restore 4 health to your hero, instead of 8. Lastly, Crystal Core will undergo a second nerf in its history: it will now produce 4/4 minions. Do you think it will survive even its second nerf like Unleash the Hounds or Sylvanas Windrunner did?
      Some of the cards that we know the team was considering changing, but will remain unscathed for now are Sunkeeper Tarim, Doomguard, Bloodreaver Gul'dan and Baku Paladin Hero Power.
      These changes will take effect after the end of the HCT playoffs at the end of May.
      Daxxarri
      In an update that will arrive some time after the HCT Playoffs are complete, we will be making balance changes to the following cards:
      Naga Sea Witch – Will cost 8 mana. (Up from 5)
      In update 9.1, we introduced a rule change to increase the consistency of Hearthstone game mechanics. The change affected precisely when Naga Sea Witch’s cost change was applied to cards. This allowed it to be combined with the cost reduction effects on giants, and as a result, it became fairly easy to reduce their mana cost to 0.
       
      We think Hearthstone is better all around when interactions are consistent, and we like the fact that a Naga Sea Witch giants deck archetype exists. That said, we also understand that, with its current functionality, this deck can generate early board states that are unreasonable for most classes to deal with. By increasing the cost of Naga Sea Witch to 8 mana, the deck’s concept remains intact, but the combo is delayed until later in a match when more decks are likely to have the tools to handle the arrival of so many giants.

      Spiteful Summoner – Will cost 7 mana. (Up from 6)
      After set rotation arrived with the Year of the Raven, Spiteful Summoner became more powerful and consistent when used in decks containing 10 mana cost spells. This is because the pool of 10 mana cost minions in Standard is smaller, so players could more reliably count on getting a powerful minion from Spiteful Summoner’s effect. Even considering the deckbuilding sacrifices that an effective Spiteful Summoner deck requires, we think that increasing the card’s mana cost to 7 is more in line with the powerful outcomes that are possible when it’s used alongside cards like Ultimate Infestation.

      Dark Pact – Will restore 4 Health. (Down from 8)
      There are two aspects of Dark Pact that make it powerful. At a cost of 1 mana, it’s easily used alongside cards like Carnivorous Cube, Possessed Lackey, and Spiritsinger Umbra for big combo turns. It also gives Warlocks enough healing potential so that aggressively using Lifetap and playing cards like Kobold Librarian and Hellfire feel less consequential. We left Dark Pact’s cost intact so it can still be used as part of interesting combos, but lessened the healing it provides so Warlocks will need to more carefully consider how much damage they take over the course of a match.

      Possessed Lackey – Will cost 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      Some of the card combos involving Possessed Lackey present situations that are too difficult to deal with in the early-to-mid stages of the game. Increasing its mana cost to 6 delays some of those powerful card combos to turns that are easier for opposing decks to overcome.

      Call to Arms – Will cost 5 mana. (Up from 4)
      Currently, there are three popular Paladin decks: Even Paladin, Murloc Paladin, and Odd Paladin. Among the three decks, Even Paladin and Murloc Paladin have consistently been the most powerful two archetypes over the first few weeks since the release of The Witchwood. Call to Arms moving to 5 mana restricts it from being used in Even decks and reduces its power somewhat when used in Murloc and other Paladin decks.
      We expect that players will experiment with Call to Arms at 5 mana in Odd Paladin decks, but we don’t expect this card to have much of an impact. This is because Odd Paladin can’t access 2 mana minions (meaning Call to Arms could only ever summon three 1 mana minions if played in that deck).

      Note: As a result of this change, we are adjusting the “Greymane’s Alliance” deck recipe. It will now have two copies of Saronite Chain Gang in place of Call to Arms.
      The Caverns Below – The quest reward, Crystal Core, will read: For the rest of the game, your minions are 4/4. (Down from 5/5)
      The Quest Rogue deck uses a strategy that’s strong against slow, control-heavy and fatigue decks, but struggles against most other deck archetypes. There’s a fine line between being powerful against very slow decks and being powerful versus virtually all non-aggressive strategies. By changing the quest reward to make the resulting minions 4/4 instead of 5/5, Quest Rogue should still be a reasonable option versus slow, extreme late-game decks, but offer a less polarized matchup with more moderate control decks.

      (source) Are you happy with these changes? Do you think some cards will still be playable or are all six cards useless now? What's your opinion on the unchanged cards?
