Description
In addition to fluent Common, he also speaks fourteen dialects of 'mrgl'.

Sir Finley Mrrgglton is a Neutral Minion from the League of Explorers set. When played, Sir Finley Mrrgglton will allow the player to replace his Hero Power with one of three randomly selected basic Hero Powers. The player may not choose to keep his current Hero Power.

Strategy[edit]

Since the player may choose three out of eight potential powers, he has a 37% chance to get a particular Hero Power if only one Hero Power is acceptable. If two Powers are acceptable, there is a 64% chance of receiving one of these Powers. If three Powers are acceptable, there is a 82% chance of receiving one of these Powers. If four Powers are acceptable, there is a 93% chance of receiving one of these Powers. If five Powers are acceptable, there is a 103% chance of receiving one of these Powers.

Acceptable Powers Percent Chance
One 37%
Two 64%
Three 82%
Four 93%
Five 100%

Sir Finley Mrrgglton is often used in constructed decks where the class Hero Powers does not match the goal of the deck. Examples of decks that he is useful in include:

Aggro Shaman is a deck that tries to kill the opponent as fast as possible with burn spells. Totemic Call isn't particularly useful for this purpose, so Sir Finley fits perfectly in this deck. The best two Hero Powers are Life Tap and Steady Shot, both which provide the Shaman with additional potential damage. Shapeshift also deserves a special mention as it gives the Shaman two extra damage when used in combination with Doomhammer.

Egg Druid is an aggressive deck that relies on getting a sticky board up and then finishing off the opponent with a Savage Roar. The Druid Hero Power is one of the worst out of the nine basic powers to accomplish this goal. Life Tap allows the Druid to keep up with the draws while Steady Shot puts a clock on the opponent. Both Reinforce and Totemic Call summon more minions, which can synergize with Power of the Wild, Soul of the Forest, or Savage Roar. Fireblast acts as a slightly better Shapeshift. Finally, Lesser Heal can help maintain the Druid's board.

Patron Warrior is a tempo-oriented deck that generally has no use for more armor with Armor Up!. As with most decks, Patron Warrior appreciates more cards, so Life Tap is always a welcome choice. Lesser Heal is also a great surprising pick as it helps maintain the Patron Warrior's board, notably healing Grim Patrons. Fireblast works amazingly in this deck, activating cards like Accolyte of Pain, Grim Patron, and Execute. Note that there are times where you don't actually want to play Sir Finley Mrrgglton, specifically against burn decks such as Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, and Freeze Mage.
