Hearthstone Mercenaries: New Mercenary Added - Murky

Patch 23.0 sees a new Mercenary, Murky, added to Hearthstone Mercenaries. It should be the last one for a few months as they're moving to releasing Mercenaries in bigger bunches similar to what they do for sets and what not. You can get Murky for free through the Voyage to the Sunken City Rewards Track, which becomes available when Voyage of the Sunken City releases on April 12, 2022.

Murky is an Epic Fighter. Here are his (her? Do murlocs have gender? Or can no one but the murlocs actually tell the difference?) maxed out stats:

- Slime Time 5 (Nature): (Speed 4) Deal 12 damage to an enemy. Give it Taunt until the end of next turn.
- Bubbly Bobble 5 (Nature): (Speed 4, Cooldown 1) Restore 13 Health to an adjacent Murloc. Swap places and both gain Divine Shield. Nature Combo: Repeat this.
- Pufferfisher 5 (Summon): (Speed 7, Cooldown 1) (Murloc) 15 Attack, 10 Health. Deathrattle: Deal damage equal to this minion’s Attack to 3 random enemies.

- Time to Krill 4 (Passive): Whenever a friendly Murloc Attacks an enemy with Taunt, give them +4 Attack.
- Slippery When Wet 4: Passive: After one of your characters loses Divine Shield or Frozen, its next ability is (3) Speed faster.
- March of the Murlocs 4: Battlecry: Summon 2 10/10 Murlocs.

Thoughts: Murky makes the fifth Murloc added to the game and makes a Murloc party more playable due to an increase in synergy and survivability (especially at the higher level bounties). While there are no Protector murlocs as of yet, Mutanus can stand in for one, especially using their Iridescent Necklace Equipment.
