I think Sottle made a mistake posting the deck xD Otherwise where are the murlocs?

That's a very good point! Thanks for pointing it out!

I feel like it would just make the meta impossible for Control, though. You'd never see an end to the pressure!

Is that Tirion supposed to be Leeroy jenkins instead ? since the card swaps mention leeroy jenkins and it's an aggro deck ?

Tirion Fordring is the new meta. 15 damage and huge stats (and even more stats after buffed) with divine shield is amazing value.
The guide mentions Leeroy Jenkins as a possible swap if you need a better faster finisher.

Our apologies, there was a big mistake in the deck and it was featuring the same cards as the other new Paladin Aggro deck. positiv2 informed us of this almost 10 hours ago, but we were so focused on getting new decks out and trimming the Wild and Standard hub pages (done Druid and Hunter so far), that we didn't see the message until like now :( It's going to get fixed very soon.

This deck is pretty lackluster in terms of finishers. If you lose your board, you're screwed unless you have prebuffed cards as murlocs on their own are very weak. Finja can also be very unreliable depending on the state of the game and if he can even kill anything at that point, I've found myself in a lot of situations where Finja pulls out murlocs with battlecry, like Coldlight Oracle, Vilefin Inquisitor, Sir Finley Mrrgglton, Bilefin Tidehunter, Grimscale Chum and Coldlight Oracle. That's 9 cards of the deck that lead to back outcomes in this scenario. I think Leeroy Jenkins would be far better as he still is affected by Smuggler's Run and Grimestreet Outfitter.

Shaman and Warrior are very strong against this deck because Shaman has very annoying AoEs/taunts, and Warrior has weapons capable of easily disposing of your murlocs.

I do enjoy Murloc decks (at least on the giving side, not so much the receiving side!)... but I have to echo what some others have hinted at.  Without any hard removal, this deck HAS to win early, because there's too much midrange and end game AOE removal available, and it can't compete with things like Shaman/Warrior/Druid Taunt and/or gigantic minions, Warlock ramp (and they gave 'Locks even more cheap masochistic thrills in U'G), and Hunter beast spam.

Even if it means swapping in a couple of weapons and/or the old standby Equality/Consecrate for board control... I'm not sure how long-term viable this deck is, given the monstrosities that U'G has unleashed on the HS world.

Pretty much. Luckily, murloc synergy allows paladin to extremely aggressive, even past the possibilities of many non-murloc aggro decks. However, in order to do so, you need to have a great opening hand almost every time, which means adding weapons and situational cards might be too risky. Leeroy Jenkins, and to some extent Tirion Fordring are exceptions to this rule, as they fit the goal of the deck quite well.

I found this to be a good deck for learning how to play a murloc-based Paladain deck, only a few rare cards so its not dust heavy either. So I would say as a beginner/intermediate deck, this is pretty good.

Once you get the hang of it, throw in some weapons and buffs like Blessing of Kings and Truesilve Champion will give you more staying power and options; it also means you're not so one dimensional and even in the late game you have something to offer.

But again, this is a great deck to learn the basics of when to trade pieces with the opponent and when to just hold.

I was just wondering in which world is this here  a Budged Deck? :D

It cost more thank 4k dust, containing 8 epic cards from 4 different sets which makes it very likely that a newer player (or someone who invested into other decks and just wants to try this out) has to craft a least 6 epics they miss and maybe never use again if they don't enjoy the deck.

We use Budget for decks that have had some of their more expensive cards replaced in order to lower the overall cost of the deck. It does not contain any legendary cards and the cost was reduced by 1200 dust, which is quite a lot for a new player. The cheapest aggro murloc decks do not work since Murloc Warleader nerf, as the hyper aggressive approach is more vulnerable to AoEs and trading. This results in pretty much all strong murloc aggro decks being somewhat expensive, 4k dust or more, limiting the budget options for the deck.

I agree still the budget tag feels wrong :D

That's why I preferred the old system for marking decks as budget. Decks that were "cheap" compared to the full deck (such as control warrior at 6k dust compared to 10k dust full version - this deck would have been in this category as well) has Mid Budget tag, while decks that were really cheap but didn't qualify for the Cheap tag (such as ramp druid at 1.4k dust) has Low Budget tag. This way it was easier to find the decks based on your collection. Not sure why that system was abandoned.

So yeah, I agree the current system is not the best one, as many of us are used to decks marked as budget to be sub-2k, but at the same time the decks really are budget versions.

Thank you for the explanation. And it's not a big deal it was just, when I clicked on this deck, "8 epics? 4k dust? wtf?" :D

But if blizz continues to do as they do it looks like about 6k will be budget soon and the 10k just a mid budged. We already have decks which cost more than 12k. I always assume someone is not a cash cow so that will be like hell for every new or low time/money player especially if they find no fun in the cheaper classes like Hunter.

      The final stage of the HCT 2017 Worldc Championship has kicked off with the group stage. On Thursday, we saw matches on groups A and B. Beware because spoilers are following!
      Group A
      This group consists of Frederik "Hoej" Nielsen, Julien "DocPwn" Bachand, Jon "Orange" and Chen "tom60229" Wei Lin. The first match of the day was between the Danish Hoej vs the Canadian DocPwn (2-3). This was one of the longest matches, with both players displaying exceptional skill. It all culminated into the 5th game, where DocPwn managed to get his Keleseth Rogue early game going and beat Hoej's Priest. In the other game, tom60229 from Taiwan easily beat Orange from Sweden with a score of 3-1.
      The two defeated players, Hoej and Orange, proceeded to play against each other. Hoej's Murloc Paladin, the deck that made him stand out compared to other contestants, betrayed him as he lost 3 times in a row with it! Thus, one of the favourites for the World Championship was eliminated. DocPwn also sweeped his opponent tom, but he had a much harder time. Their last game, with Keleseth Rogue for DocPwn and Jade Druid for tom, had quite a few upsets and you should definitely watch it.
      The decider match between Orange and tom60229 will take place on Saturday.
      Group A Match W-L Total W-L DocPwn 2-0 6-2 Orange 1-1 4-3 tom60229 1-1 3-4 Hoej 0-2 2-6 Group B
      Muzahidul "Muzzy" Islam, Jason "JasonZhou" Zhou, Aleksandr "Kolento" Malsh and Samuel "SamuelTsao" Tsao play in this group. Muzzy, who represents America and is one of the favourite's to win the World Championship, beat the Chinese JasonZhou with a score of 3-1. In the next match, even though SamuelTsao made some mistakes, he managed to even the score with the Ukranian legend. In their final game, the young Taiwanese's Priest beat Kolento's Druid with an impressive 46-damage OTK (3-2).
      The elimination series between Kolento and JasonZhou is totally nail-biting! The two experienced players evened out each other and it all came down to the final game with a Keleseth Rogue mirror match. Jason drew better and he managed to eliminate crowd favourite Kolento (along with everyone who voted for him) with a score of 3-2. SamuelTsao managed to beat Muzzy with the same score in another intense series. Their last match (Warlock vs Priest) had a lot of upsides, but in the end luck smiled to SamuelTsao.
      The decider match between Muzzy and JasonZhou will take place on Saturday.
      Group B Match W-L Total W-L SamuelTsao 2-0 6-4 Muzzy 1-1 5-4 JasonZhou 1-1 4-5 Kolento 0-2 4-6 Final Remarks
      Thursday was a day of surprises, particularly unpleasant ones for Europe. Favourites Kolento (RIP packs) and Hoej were eliminated; I am mostly suprised about Hoej, since he had one of the strongest deck line-ups of this Championship. Statistically speaking, I don't think we'll have a European World Champion this time.
      On the other hand, outsiders DocPwn and SamuelTsao managed to come out on the top of their groups. DocPwn's effort is certainly admirable, since he's not exactly a full-time professional Hearthstone player: he was calm, level-headed and showed some exceptional critical decision making. In contrast, Samuel's youth and inexperience were quite evident, but his opponents also underestimated him. I think he has a lot to show for in the future.
      The not-so-surprising highlight of the day was Warlock being banned in almost all matches. Among the decks that stood out were Orange's Hunter (he's the only one that brought one and he won 2/2 of his games with it) and JasonZhou's interestingly teched Aggro Druid.
      Day 2 of the Group Stage is currently underway, so make sure to watch it!

      The two Hearthstone developers talked to IGN about the design process behind some of the most impactful cards from Kobolds & Catacombs.
      First of all, Peter Whalen and Mike Donais confirmed that there will be an update on February, a month after the World Championship. This patch will contain new events and possibly balance changes. They will take a look at the meta as it's been and as it is in the World Championship and they will decide accordingly.
      Moving on, they talked about some of the classes and how K&C cards have affected them. Starting with Warlock, Cubelock was a deck that was tested internally and it was an archetype the team was "certainly concerned about and [they] played a bunch of games with it". Carnivorous Cube was also tested internally in Recruit Hunter and in Quest Druid. As far as Possessed Lackey is concerned, there was a second version of it that read "Battlecry: If you control a Demon, Recruit a Demon", while Dark Pact was 0 mana at some point. Lastly, Rin, the First Disciple's seals used to have different effects and Azari, the Devourer was a 15/15 untargetable minion.
      The two devs talked next about the other dominating class of the current meta: Priest. Mike Donais pointed out that Highlander Priest was already doing well, so it was only given one new card: Psychic Scream. On the other hand. Big Priest has a pretty medium win rate, even though it can feel frustrating to play against. It's also a deck that will lose several cards in the upcoming rotation. At this point, the devs repeated that they are looking forward to develop and see in action new playstyles in the post-Barnes era. Finally, during the design process Twilight's Call could summon any minion, not just Deathrattles, but this was deemed too powerful.
      The next class to be discussed was Rogue. The team is happy with how balanced the Kingsbane Rogue deck turned out to be. Some internal iterations of the Rogue legendary weapon were dual-wielded daggers or a weapon that had the Battlecry: Discover a card, everything you draw is a copy of that. Mike also talked about Valeera the Hollow: he expected her to be more powerful than she already is, but maybe players will find a way to use her more in the future.
      There were a few words about Hearthstone's currently weakest class: Shaman. The devs think that the Shaman Spellstone is a powerful "sleeper" card, although maybe there's presently not a proper deck for it. They were also slightly worried about Unstable Evolution. Another "sleeper" card for them is Warrior's Drywhisker Armorer.
      An important point is that when asked about Corridor Creeper, Peter said that it's "one of the cards that raised a red flag". Lastly, they talked about King Togwaggle and the numerous iterations he had - all around swapping decks with your opponent. The penalty on the spell card isn't high enough on purpose, because they didn't want Togwaggle to be a super competitive card.
      I've tried to summarise the most important points, but you should definitely check out the entire interview on IGN. There's much more detail behind the design process of Kobolds & Catacombs, while there is also temp artwortk of cards as well as two cards that never made it into the game!

      Players can earn up to three free packs for logging in to Hearthstone during the Hearthstone World Championships.
      The folks over at Hearthpwn.com have learned from data mining of patch 10.0 that the Hearthstone World Championships will offer players three free packs as daily login rewards. The first day of the championships will give players a Journey to Un'Goro pack, the second day a Knights of the Frozen Throne pack, and the third a Kobolds & Catacombs pack. The Hearthstone home screen will also change to sparkling white theme honor the World Championships.

      Along with this week's awesome Tavern Brawl featuring World Championship winning decks, this marks the first time that Blizzard has brought Hearthstone eSports all the way to the Hearthstone client. Given the recent start of the Overwatch League and the choose your champion feature for the World Championships, it seems that Blizzard is supporting competitive gaming now more than ever.

      This week's Brawl honours the 3 previous Hearthstone World Champions!
      The 2018 World Championship is about to begin and Team 5 is celebrating by giving us a very special Tavern Brawl. In this Brawl, you get to play with decks that the previous world champions from 2014, 2015 and 2016 used on their way to the top. Your player name will even change to the respective Champion: Firebat, Ostkaka or Pavel!
      Here are the deck archetypes you can get:
      Firebat's Undertaker Hunter Firebat's Ramp Druid Firebat's Miracle Rogue Firebat's Zoolock Ostkaka's Patron Warrior Ostkaka's Oil Rogue Ostkaka's Freeze Mage Pavel's Tempo Mage Pavel's Malygos Miracle Rogue Pavel's Midrange Shaman Pavel's C'Thun Warrior Pavel's Malygos OTK Druid You might think: "why would I want to play a deck from 2014 with cards that have been nerfed"? Well, all cards are on their pre-nerfed versions, therefore they are basically in the same state as when originally used by each World Champion. So, say hello to pre-nerf Undertaker, Leper Gnome, Hex and many others.
      Amnesiac can never catch a break.
      A slight inconsistency is that cards that generate other cards or tokens, like Piloted Shredder or Babbling Book, can generate cards/tokens from later expansions. For example, my opponent's dead Shredder created Friendly Bartender, a card that neither Champion had encountered at their time.
      Enjoy the Brawl and tune in to the World Championship this weekend!
