    Solid Murloc support. Slow turn initially but allows you to go off with buffs the following turn and deters your opponent from playing on curve.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    Not bad.  2/4 means that it could stick around after killing something off.

    This is probably the best diver among the 3 of them due to the poisonous and don't forget the murloc tag can be useful at some point. Being dormant might also causes players to misplay. Imagine you opponent plays a Snowfall Guardian into your dormant Slimescale Diver

    The best thing about this card, and likely the only thing that makes it playable at all, is that its a murloc. Ironically, unlike other murlocs, this one has decent stats, will kill unconditionally (almost anyway, divine shield etc.), and you can actually buff it on virtue of the fact that its dormant for 1 turn.

    A nice addition into all murloc decks. Might even be useful in paladin, like most dormant minions.

    Hmm this seems pretty decent, but im not sold on it. Maybe might see play in a slower meta, but outside of that it might just be too slow.

    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.

    Looks ok - seems pretty slow at first but relatively bulky for a murloc so it could be decent.

    Rush Poisonous is a very powerful combo. Waiting a turn for it makes this a little weaker, as now it's more of a deterrent, i.e.- "Don't play that big minion unless you want it to die immediately" rather than an answer to something already on board. It would be interesting to see if this catches on in Standard, but Arena seems like the place where it will shine.

    I have spoken.

    Is this too good for 3 mana? Is that why it needs the dormant penalty? Might be better to play this late to remove a single late game threat. As long as it doesn't have divine shield, or you have something else to pop the shield.

    I like how it aggressively prevents your opponent from investing any taunt at this point, so even if slow, it assures you the board dominance, to some degree.

    Hey, remember back in Barrens where Venomous Scorpid was every where and made playing big things on 3/4 awkward? Here's one that can't just be Holy Smited or whatever away.

    Quite a strong card, even without the Murloc tag. Specially amazing in arena!
