Hey all! So my favorite deck-type is murlocs. I've been playing them for a long time and trying different approaches with them, but most changes aren't very successful. With all of the different strategies available for murlocs, has anyone had success with strategies that don't focus on ridiculous turnarounds? (For example, using Bloodlust, Anyfin Can Happen, and Everyfin is Awesome)?
I thought about actively trying to keep murlocs on the board now that we have Gentle Megasaur and Rockpool Hunter especially when combined with Coldlight Seer. Plus there are a bunch of new murlocs that don't have a health of only 1. Maybe it's because I'm not used to the strategy and focus too much on keeping murlocs on the board, but I really struggle when I play this way.
Then there's the going in swinging approach where you just keep attacking and summoning. Thanks to cards like Call in the Finishers, Primalfin Totem, Siltfin Spiritwalker, Vilefin Inquisitor, and Finja, the Flying Star we don't have to worry about losing murlocs. But if I take out battlecry cards while using Finja then the deck doesn't do as well. I thought it would be a cool opportunity to try using different murlocs that might not get as much attention (because of how helpful battlecry murlocs can be), but it's difficult compared to my more successful decks. It might just be that I don't have enough practice with that approach?
I also liked using Brann Bronzebeard and Rumbling Elemental to keep murloc count high and do some nice passive counter to other aggro decks, but it seems like decks that wait for the big turnaround are still the most successful.
I don't know, I tend to play with a heavy amount of murlocs, often with no other minion type (except maybe Grimestreet Outfitter ) does anyone have any recommendations of different murloc decks? Also has anyone had success with murloc deck types that aren't Shaman or Paladin? I've tried with all the other classes, but Shaman and Paladin (as would be expected) have the most success. I've won with Warlock, Priest, and Warrior only a few times (like maybe once each) but that's about it that I can remember. I'd expect it to be easier with Druid but I haven't done well with that.
