    Thought Murlocs were supposed to be shamans class identity? :thinking:

    Nevertheless quite good card both in standard and wild

    This looks pretty tempting alongside Anyfin Can Happen in wild.

    A meme deck for sure, but I didn't have the cards for it back when Anyfin paladin was a real deck in standard.

    Needs context, but probably bad.

    Can you believe Call to Arms used to cost half this?

    This is far too slow for wild anyfin and aggro murloc paladin. By turn 8 you've either already played half of the murlocs in your deck (which aren't many, so this won't ever summon 7) thanks to Call to Arms and Finja, the Flying Star, or you've already lost, in terms of aggro paladin.

    In standard, this is probably decent refill if a murloc-heavy aggro/midrange paladin deck becomes a thing. Sort of like The Forest's Aid in token druid. Except it doesn't have twinspell.

    8-mana?  

     

    This won't be tipping anything.   I'd rather drop a Tirion.

    Same here, but according to some dictionaries the idiom means the following:

    https://dictionary.cambridge.org/dictionary/english/tip-the-balance-scales

    If something tips the balance or tips the scales, it is the thing that causes a particular situation to happen or a particular decision to be made, when other situations or decisions are possible:

    e.g. She was a good candidate, but her lack of computer skills tipped the scales against her.

    This is ok in standard. Only works in full on murlocadin, which I'm not sure has enough other support. Can't really use this as a combo piece like Anyfin, because the chances are too high that by the time you draw this (and by turn 8 at the earliest) you'll have already drawn some of the other combo pieces so they won't be in your deck.

    I think I like this in wild with Anyfin though... I played that deck A LOT, and its biggest drawback was games where your warleaders or bluegills were at the bottom of your deck. No more with this!

    Communism is just a red herring

    Good for wild with anyfin (possibly instead of finja), without more support in standard I don't see it happening though. Best maybe with baleful banker you could make a burst with warleaders and bluegills but it's a bit too luck dependant I think

    In standard I could see it being used in a Shirvallah OTK deck where you use murlocs to fight for board in the early game, play this in the mid/late game to thin the deck, and then end it with Holy Wrath.

    If something tips the balance or tips the scales, it is the thing that causes a particular situation to happen or a particular decision to be made, when other situations or decisions are possible:

    e.g. She was a good candidate, but her lack of computer skills tipped the scales against her.

    Building off of this, "scales" are a series of rigid plates on the body of a fish or reptile (which Murlocs resemble).

    In addition to that, a "scale" can also be a device to measure the weight of an object, or to compare the weight of one object to another. If an object on one side is heavier than an object on the other side, the scale will "tip" towards the side of the heavier object. The idiom "tip the scales" refers to such a situation like this, as the events "tipped" towards one side, so to speak.

    In the context of this card, the name "tip the scales" references the idiom, while also alluding to both of the above definitions of the word "scale" at the same time.

    Lots of quotations in this post, lol.
