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.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      Mage's Spellstone card for hints at a potential Elemental theme for the class in the upcoming set.
      Mage's Spellstone was revealed today by Chinese Hearthstone streamer LvGe, hinting at a potential Elemental theme for the Mage class in K&C:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      The upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone will provide an additional random Mage Spell for every two Elementals you can play while this card is in your hand, meaning that this card is capable of becoming a two mana Cabalist's Tome! The lesser version of this spell isn't very enticing, but both of the upgraded versions of Ruby Spellstone seem like quite the deal. Unfortunately, the requirement to upgrade Ruby Spellstone is quite prohibitive and will likely hold this card back from seeing widespread play on the ladder.
      Let us know what you think about Ruby Spellstone in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
