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.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
