Sir finley is the  best murloc, but saw Amaz playing a similar deck and it looked decent .. I wish they gave aggro decks a card like Jeeves ..

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!

I think he posted the same deck twice, this is not a murloc deck, its the same aggro paladin deck

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.

      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. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.
