Hi ssflanagan! It depends a bit on your exact plans, for example during your stay in Lucerne. If you plan to make long and expensive train or boat trips there, a Swiss Saver Flexi Pass
might be better. If you'll mainly be making shorter regional trips, I suggest you look into the Swiss Card
(it's about equally expensive as, but more convenient than, the Swiss Half Fare Card solution in your case). The Swiss Card would provide a free inbound trip, without the requirement of buying additional discounted tickets, from the Swiss/Austrian border to Lucerne and a free outbound trip from Mürren or Wengen to Zurich, plus a 50% discount on all trips in between.
The only way to know for sure is to make an exact list for your plans, including all day trips from Lucerne, and make calculations
. This includes a comparison of the areas of validity by downloading the network maps from the Swiss Flexi Pass
and Swiss Card pages
