Welcome Cat! I suggest you look into a 3 day Swiss Flexi Pass
. The Swiss Flexi Pass allows three free travel days. You'd use them for day 1, 5 and any of the other days in between on which you plan to make the longest and most expensive journey (probably day 3: Mürren to Lucerne). You're allowed to travel on any route, with whichever detour you like, during free travel days. The remaining days allos you to buy 50% discounted tickets. The routes you propose would be great. If you're in for a scenic (but somewhat longer) inbound trip, then skip quick the tunnel connection to Spiez and board the regional Lötschberg Express in Brig instead. Details can be found by mentioning Goppenstein and Kandersteg as via-stations in the timetable.
An alternative would be the Swiss Card
. It might turn out to be a bit cheaper, but that really depends on the plan you have on day 2, 3 and 4. It allows a free inbound trip (Domodossola - Mürren) and a free outbround trip (Lucerne-Domodossola or Lucerne-Chiasso), plus a 50% discount in between. The only restriction is that you're bound to the quickest and/or cheapest inbound and outbound routes, as proposed by the timetable. But that won't be a problem for any of the routes you have in mind.
I hope this helps you decice!
