Which is better in the current meta, this or the version with auctioneer? 

What do you mean? This list does currently use Gadgetzan Auctioneer

Sorry, posted to wrong one, i meant token or auctioneer? 

It depends on your rank and what you are facing the most of (Control vs. Aggro vs. Mid).

With the inclusion of Thaurissan in the Auctioneer deck, you can draw extremely quickly and push for an OTK from hand.

For the Token deck, you still have an OK amount of burst, but the lack of Thaurissan means you will more likely build a board and then push for lethal with buffs.

Indeed a very interesting deck.

 

May I ask what could I replace Raven Idol with and still have a meta deck? If it's possible to do so...

Xixo plays two copies of Feral Rage (in place of Bloodmage Thalnos), so you could add a second one as well. He also used to play Mulch in the deck. So, you could second Feral Rage and one Mulch until you get Raven Idols.

Thanks a lot! :D

Just to add to above, swap as you meet more aggro/more control. Feral vs. aggro is better, Mulch can be much better vs. Control.

How will Druid decks like this one go with the Yogg nerf? I'm trying Alex at the moment to try help with the Malygos win condition and as additional healing. Or is Yogg still okay?

Well, he said that his deck is not his, and that it comes from our site, which means that it is not "true plagiarism". 

As I do not represent I-V's opinions or whatnot, I will summon @Blainie to (possibly) say what he thinks about it. Thank you for telling us about it!

I dont get it. Everywhere it is written that this is the awesome deck to play right now.

Though im primarilly an arena player rather than constructed, i aint no idiot. I average 6 wins in arena and on my montly road to rank 15 i normally have 80%+ winrate with a variety of decks (tempo mage, dragon priest, control warrior, dragon warrior, any of them really)

I know to play different vs control decks or aggro decks. But what do you do against the most simple of all, a deck that just keeps playing minions on curve ? At turn 4 you already cant kill it with 1 card. 
Or true aggro, just not enough firepower to kill them all. And no combo in the end (i know auctioneer, nice in theory, but it costs 6 mana, and dies next turn so you may draw 1 or 2 extra cards if you play it on turn 8 or so)

Its seriously the worst deck i have played in ages.

This is a very powerful deck so clearly it's you not clicking with the deck, but hey , that's ok. Some people don't click with some decks. I am primarily a mage player, I have the highest win rate with Tempo Mage over any other deck that I play. With that being said, I do horribly with the new Aggro Freeze mage. It's not the deck because obviously people are reaching the highest of ranks with it, it is me not clicking with the deck. My solution to that problem, which I offer you, switch decks.

Combo decks are much more complicated and it's very hard to say what to do in general, as your response should be specific to a given situation. This is more true here than in other combo decks, such as freeze mage or miracle rogue. The most common issue with malygos druid, and combo decks in general, is using resources suboptimally. Watch a few videos with the deck. Before each turn pause the video and think what you would do, then unpause and see what the player did, and then adjust your own playstyle with the deck - if the player often made more defensive plays, you need to play more defensively and vice-versa.

The (second) best thing would be to give us a replay so we could see where you often make mistakes.

      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      As some of you will know, I've been writing news here at Icy-Veins for over a year. A lot has changed in that year, both personally, and within Hearthstone. I switched from Arena to Constructed with the introduction of Standard, and have started to cast quite a few large events.
      With those things in mind, I've been let loose on writing guides. I won't be touching Sottle's high level content, but instead will be focussing on keep your old decks fresh. I will be updating decks which have dropped out of the meta, and making them playable to somewhere in the region of Rank Five. They will be weaker than the meta decks, but if you have played the older versions you will probably find that you already own many of the cards, and experience, required to play them.
      Hopefully this will fill a gap for some of you. I'll be a little busy for the first few weeks as I get the hang of things and concentrate on producing quality content, but feel free to let me know if there's an archetype you feel has been left out.

      - Actively doing dungeons and world quests to gear in preparation for raids. This includes improving your artifact weapon.

      - Always come to raids prepared (i.e. bringing food and potions, etc).
      - Come fully gemmed and enchanted with the correct stats for your class and spec.
      - Access to Discord and a working microphone.
