This card is a cornerstone of Even Shaman decks running Genn Greymane, having a decent body and a damage-dealing Battlecry that is high for its cost. Its effect will ensure it's useful in any stage of the game and a powerful tempo card in the early game. Because Shamans lack even-cost board clears aside from Hagatha the Witch, Murkspark Eel is crucial for early board game control to ensure you survive to that stage.

Commentary: As they were complementary to the Even-Odd mechanic that Baku and Genn introduced, Gloom Stag, Black Cat, Glitter Moth, and Murkspark Eel will also join the Hall of Fame.
