Murloc OTK Paladin is all the rage on ladder right now [ThijsNL's decklist inside]
Pro players have been having murlocy fun now that [card]Anyfin Can Happen[/card] is released.
Let’s be honest for a second – many of you probably dismissed [card]Anyfin Can Happen[/card] at the time of its release. Sure, murlocs can be fun, but viable? Probably not, especially not in Paladin.
Tides might be turning, however. The twittersphere today has been full of screenshots depicting massive murloc attacks for upwards of 30 damage. According to one Thijs “ThijsNL” Molendijk, his Murlocadin (shown below) boasts 67% win-rate in the highest ranks of the legend ladder.
Of course, it’s too early to say of Anyfin Paladins are here to stay, or if they will become tournament staples. If previous League of Explorer trends are to be regarded, however, that might certainly be the case. The new Hearthstone expansion led to the creation of various highlander decks, made for a new aggro Shaman, added diversity to the Rogue class with the Mill and Raptor archetypes and empowered old builds like the Malylock.
