    Looks like this is where shaman is heading towards this expansion: murlocs and swarming piranhas.

    Forget the piranhas for a second, and this card is unusual in that its a murloc and that it actually has a decent chance to survive for more than the turn its played. For that reason alone, should murloc shaman make an entrance, this would likely be one of the most important card in it.

    It's not bad, but it's also fairly generic. Maybe there'S some synergy for having sticky Murlocs but just getting a bunch of Piranhas doesn't seem good enough to build a deck around.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Very sticky murloc, those are rare. This might help make murloc shaman a deck again, after all that deck is starved for murlocs.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Good stats and maybe some sort of Murloc / Piranha shamen will emerge in standard but i guess we will have to wait and see more card. 

    Seems decent on it's own tough!

    Do they usually just leave out stuff like "with rush" when the minion it summons is also a collectable card? This looks like it could be very strong, based on how Piranha Swarmer grows when there are more of them.

    Quite a lot of health for a 3 mana murloc which is what you'd want seeing as this guy adds a Piranha Swarmer to hand each turn. Is that good though? Probably not as the Piranhas are certainly not as good as lackeys. Might see play in a murloc shaman deck, if it turns out to be playable.

    It's pretty boring. Unless there's a really good payoff for having as many Piranhas as possible, I don't think you'd want to run this minion in a serious deck.

    I have spoken.

    A pretty resilient Murloc that also generates more fishy - whom gets better the more fishies been played - what is not to like about this?

    It has nice stats, but I'm still not convinced about the whole piranha deal. Hope I'm wrong, though. It does look fun!
