Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The timing for Murloc Tidecaller is that its triggered effect activates prior to the application of any auras, and the activation of any card text.[1]

Strategy[edit | edit source]

As a one mana minion benefiting from other summoned minions of the same sub-type, this card is best played on turn one as it has 2 health which can be a little difficult to remove at turn 1 for opponents. Following it up with a strong turn two play like Murloc Tidehunter or Rockpool Hunter can create a huge early game advantage. This card can easily get out of hand, and can be quite difficult and costly to take out if the player is allowed to build a board of murlocs as early as turn 3.

Lore[edit | edit source]

'Tidecaller' seems to refer to a specific role or class, with the title found among many types of murloc, and even other race such as the makrura. In World of Warcraft, the specific name "Murloc Tidecaller" is used by a type of level 16 murloc found in the Redridge Mountains.
