lost first game right on spot don't know why this is a good deck

Woah, judging a deck based on ONE game, that is something new. You could try watching some streamers play this deck, but I honestly doubt that it will help you.

Isn't this deck supposed to have The Curator and Stampeding Kodo in it? ;)

Not necessary, and it's not yet updated anyways. The Curator is a hefty investment, and Murloc Paladin can benefit from "just drawing" rather tutoring for Murlocs, who aren't exactly heal you, wipe the board and draw into Anyfin like the rest of your stuff does.

New conversation : I think guide needs a math mentioning 3rd and 4th Anyfin, as they are definitely possible thanks to Ivory Knight. It's already done for Anyfin #1 and #2.

any replacement for rag and tirion?elise and lay on hands maybe?

They are both very strong cards, especially Tirion Fordring, as he gives you 15 damage over 3 turns, which helps when the draw is suboptimal and the Anyfin Can Happen will not do maximum damage. If I were you, I would add one Lay on Hands and one Humility and start saving dust for Tirion Fordring.

Ragnaros, Lightlord is also a really important card in the deck, especially if you run 1 Forbidden Healing. You can get away with Lay on Hands but that wouldn't be exactly great. RagLite buffs your Barnes and gives you a sticky healing totem, although it's weak to premier removal that's probably chilling in your opponent's hand.

Tirion Fordring is excellent value for a control deck, he is excellent with Barnes, but I feel that sometimes you're dead even after playing him fair. Comparing these two legendaries, I'd say that RagLite is strategically favored because he does exactly what deck wants - and that is helps you to stay alive - while Tirion helps you to kill stuff in combat which is slightly less helpful, but diminishing Barnes value without him would be a big hit.

Why is deck played frequently on tourneys considered "somewhat outside the current meta" ?

Tournament meta is different from ladder meta.
You can expect less of one deck or one class, as one player is most of the time allowed to take only one deck from one class (i.e. you can't use same class twice). This means not only you see more different decks, but also you are forced to take "subpar" decks, as you simply cannot play midrange shaman, unlike on ladder.

An avid reader can get an image of Murloc Paladin pictured by @positiv2 as a "subpar" deck. This is not particularly true. Deck is pretty good at doing its thing.

What makes it a bad ladder choice is that "its thing" is not good against ladder metagame - dominated by Shaman and Hunter.

When you are approaching tournament formats - Conquest, where you have to win with each of your decks, winner is forced to change the deck - and Last Hero Standing - where winner is forced to stay on his deck - not only the meta changes, but the whole approach of forming your lineup matters. This is a complex thing, it can also happen during the actual game, and I won't discuss this much, but what is to be pointed out is that you can capitilaze on a deck having very lopsided matchups(like Murloc Paladin), turning it from relative weakness to relative strength, thus not really making your choice "subpar" to anything.

I'm sorry if this comment looks pointless or offensive, but the word "subpar" just triggered me. Cheers!

@ParacelI, of course, meant that the deck is subpar on current ladder (or, yesterday's ladder), and that's why I put the word subpar into quotes. 

The deck might see a move to a different category now that the nerfs are live, though we have to wait and see how the meta shapes up.

What can I replace the Solemn Vigil and Forbidden Healingwith?

Also worth noting that, if you can't craft Lay on Hands, you can also use 1x Blessing of Wisdom. It actually works OK in the deck, from what I've seen, for card draw. It's not ideal at all, but it works.

Sorry, how is Anyfin Can Happen supposed to deal 30 damage? With 2 Bluegill Warrior and 2 Murloc Warleader you would only be able to do 12, 6 from each Bluegill Warrior buffed twice.

The first one will not be a massive damage burst, as you say, but rather the second one will be the one to deliver the finishing blow, as you get either 4 Murloc Warleaders and 3 Bluegill Warriors, or 4 Bluegill Warrior and 3 Murloc Warleaders, both granting you lethal with 30 and 32 damage respectively.

Just to add to what positiv said, this is also why the first Anyfin can often be used to clear. You can clear most priority targets, force them to clear your Warleaders, then you pop your second Anyfin and go face.

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival.
