This guide contains detailed Strategy, Mulligan, and deck-building information to help you play Murloc Warlock in The Voyage to the Sunken City expansion meta.

Murloc Warlock is an aggressive tribal deck that utilises Murloc synergies to dominate the board. While Murlocs individually are quite weak, when played together, they allow the deck to snowball out of control quickly, often catching opponents off-guard for swift victories.

Murloc Warlock Deck Mulligan Guide

In your mulligan you should look for a strong early-game opener as Murloc Warlock is at its strongest at low Mana costs, becoming less effective as the game goes longer.

  • General Mulligan (keep regardless of what your opponent is playing)Rock Bottom, Chum Bucket, Azsharan Scavenger, and Voidgill.
  • Mulligan against Aggro (also keep if you think you are playing against an aggressive deck)Twin-fin Fin Twin.
  • Mulligan against Control (also keep if you think you are playing against a slow deck) — No further cards required.

Murloc Warlock Deck Strategy

Unlike more traditional Murloc decks, this modern iteration of Murloc Warlock aims for a more passive early game to give itself long-term benefits. Ideally you should open up with Rock Bottom followed by Chum Bucket in order to give a significant buff to any Murlocs in your hand. If this is not possible, making use of Voidgill is also a strong alternative.

Once you have given some buffs to your Murlocs in-hand, you can begin populating the board with your cheaper Murlocs to generate some pressure. If your opponent has developed their own board, you can make use of Twin-fin Fin Twin and Lushwater Scout to help Rush in and clean up the board.

If you your initial push has not dealt critical damage, you can begin making use of resource-efficient Murlocs like Bloodscent Vilefin, Amalgam of the Deep, and Gorloc Ravager to ensure you do not run out of resources, whilst also keeping up the aggression. Continuing in this manner, making use of any further handbuffs from Chum Bucket and Voidgill, should provide you with a constant stream of aggression that will eventually become too much for your opponent to handle, allowing you to close out the game.

Against Aggro, making full use of Rush minions is essential in order to make sure you do not fall behind on the board. Due to the snowballing nature of Murlocs, trading with enemy minions to protect your Murlocs is very beneficial, as you will almost be able to finish off your opponent in a single turn once your board has grown large enough.

Against Control, you should plan your turns with a longer game in mind. This can often involve using Life Tap on Turn 2 in order to get a larger benefit from your Chum Buckets and Voidgills in addition to finding time to draw additional cards with Gorloc Ravager to help fight your opponent's board clears.
