After the TGT update the list does not contain any Zombie Chows any more, though the guide itself refers to at least one copy of it.

What do you say: Is Chow needed as an answer to early aggression or will Twilight Guardian and Refreshment Vendor suffice?

It always felt a little bit awkward to play Chow in the first place: It kind of gives away that I am playing a Malygos deck and no Handlock, so it would actually be nice, if I could replace it with something less suspicious ...

Mhm, but as I think of it: Turn 4 or 5 the latest my opponent would realize that I am no Handlock ...

Abusive seargent is for shadow flame, helping imp gang boss and imps and maybe even twilight guardian more efficiently trade with minions, plus a possible another body to trade with a 3/2 or 4/2 aggro.

I don't understand, why the abusive sergant? Is it because of shadowflame?

 

Abusive Sergeant is a very early body against aggressive decks, he helps trade up, makes Shadowflame bigger AND helps Big Game Hunter by buffing minions with 5 or 6 attack power into kill range, e. g. Loatheb or Thaurissan.

Any strategies or card substitutions for dealing with Paladin Secrets decks and Face Hunters? It seems like making proactive plays against either kind of deck can be next to impossible and that each time I tap I'm just putting myself one turn closer to losing.

You just have to try and tap as little as possible and play out your curve. The deck is capable of doing that, but as with any deck, it has its rough matchups.

This deck gets destroyed in ranked, facehunters thank you every time you lifetap, and control pallys and mages shit down your throat..not to mention other warlock decks demolish this one in aggressiveness. Having much better luck with midrange shaman/pally and discard zoolock...guess malygos warlock just cant cut it right now.

I am using this deck, just have Rend in place of one BGH and i have just lost my 12th game in a ROW. I have been following the strategy to the letter, and even with the best possible mulligan i lost every game. Ever game i play is against some type of face deck with massive aggression, or superior minion trade, and i am only rank 18....

"Superior minion trade" surprises me. This deck can get punished by the outright aggression of something like Face Hunter, but in terms of board competition, it's one of the most efficient decks in the game. Things like Implosion, Blackwing, Twilight Guardians etc are just such efficient cards compared to what other people can play.

If your opponent can keep pace with your minion trading and are playing control, they will have a hard removal for malygos(The odds of you getting malygos and your win condition spells all at once combined with thaurisan are very low), if you are playing aggainst an aggressive deck by the time malygos is out you will be at around 8 health...not too good for a deck i had such high hopes for, and the removal is counterproductive when you end up getting milled and your opponent has more  minions left over after youve exhausted your entire deck in the most efficient way possible, took me from rank 13 to 16 because i was excited when i got my second legendary that had a deck on icy....feels bad man sad.png

It's made clear in the guide that Malygos is just a bonus win condition, it's not something that you have to rely on, especially against aggressive tempo decks. I'm still really surprised that you feel like you're losing on card for card value. Feel free to post up a video of an example game if you can, i'd love to see it.

Did anyone reach rank Legend with this deck?

 

Strifecro did with one or two cards different Malylock.

      Dave Kosak is here in the latest Hearthside Chat video to talk about the lore of Rastakhan's Rumble. He also revealed two Priest cards: the Loa of Death, Bwonsamdi, and his Spirit!
      If you haven't played Battle for Azeroth, the latest WoW expansion, then this video is going to be helpful in understanding the backstory of Rastakhan's Rumble:
      The two Priest cards revealed in the video synergise very well with each other:

      As Peter Whalen and Liv Breeden mentioned in their r/Hearthstone interview, Spirits are meant to be build-around cards and this is pretty apparent with Spirit of the Dead. Apart from the obvious synergy with Bwonsamdi, the Priest Spirit can work wonders in a Clone Priest deck along with Zerek's Cloning Gallery. Spirit of the Dead can also find a spot in other archetypes like Resurrect, Big and Deathrattle Priest. The card itself is quite slow and requires some setting-up, but it looks very versatile.

      Bwonsamdi, the Loa of Death, can be used simiply to draw Spirit of the Dead, then you can kill him while the Spirit is up and shuffle him back to your deck. It's easy to see the Spirit work without Bwonsamdi, but the opposite - Bwonsamdi working without his Spirit - looks like a slim possibility. Given that all Class cards in this expansion are designed to work as a "team", we might see a card (apart from the Spirit) that can make Bwonsamdi more viable. Otherwise, the Hunter Quest never really caught on, so why would it work in a traditionally anti-aggro class like Priest?

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week and the rules are simple: both players get to have two turns, instead of one.
      This starts from the very beginning of the game, therefore giving a big advantage to Player 1. Don't be surprised if your opponent concedes when he/she finds out that he/she has to go second (or if you have to do it)!
      Doomsayer is a must-have on this Tavern Brawl, since it clears the board immediately. Flappy Bird is also a useful card and Aggro decks are generally favoured. OTK decks also can work great since you have two turns to set up your... one-turn kill. You can also experiment with Open the Waygate and Temporus; both cards work and they give you a third turn!

      The Hearthstone heroes are trying to enjoy Rastakhan's Rumble but a fellow spectator named Belligerent Gnome is annoying Rexxar!
      Wronchi have released the second part of their Rastakan's Rumble series of animations. You remember that in the first part the nine heroes were trying to get into the Gurubashi Arena. Now, we see that Rexxar, Jaina and Anduin are enjoying the games but there's a little fellow that's too loud for Rexxar's taste.
      And here he is:

      No wonder Rexxar is angry since this is definitely a Silverback Patriarch power creep! Although one would expect that Gul'dan would be equally angry, since this is a Vulgar Homunculus with a condition for every class!
      To start the serious discussion on this card, this looks like an anti-aggro tool that can also probably find its place in aggro decks as well. It's hard to see the Battlecry trigger on turn 2 exactly, making this a bit of a slower card. Dragon Priest used to have a similar card in Wyrmrest Agent, which was easier to trigger. Even decks could be a good place for Belligerent Gnome - Even Shaman, in particular, since I don't see Warlocks dropping their beloved Homunculus.
      It's definitely a versatile card with a lot of potential and it seems balanced - for now.
