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.

      As expected, Hagatha is a Shaman Legendary minion and she has a very versatile effect.
      The card was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter:
      Swampqueen Hagatha is one of these cases where the cardbox is barely enough to fit the explanation for the whole card. "Teach it 2 Shaman spells" means that you will get the Discover option twice and the Horror (a tribeless 5/5 token minion) will cast them as a Battlecry. Note that if you Discover a targeted spell, you can choose who to target with it - it's not random. According to Peter Whalen, the first choice is random but the second will offer only non-targetable spells (like Bloodlust or Chain Lightning) if your first choice was a targeted spell.
      Now that we are done with the explanation of the card, we can try and guesstimate how good it's going to be. Even though it offers a versatile Build-a-spell-like effect and it has a very interesting design, Swampqueen Hagatha is a huge tempo loss on turn 7 and requires a lot of setting-up and foresight. On the other hand, you can make up the tempo loss when you play the Horror and it also works greatly with Shudderwock.
      With Hagatha's Scheme and now the new Hagatha herself, it looks like we may be heading towards a Control Shaman era. What do you think?

      A new Scheme card for Rogue was revealed by @PlayHearthstone on Twitter.
      The card also confirms King Togwaggle as an upcoming Rogue Legendary minion.
      Now that we know that Scheme cards can update infintely, Togwaggle's Scheme looks absolutely insane. Pogo-Hopper decks have recently gained popularity and this new Scheme card fits perfectly into them. It can also fit into a Pirate Rogue deck. A lot of people have been comparing it to Jade Idol. The card is also pretty bonkers in Wild as well in the hands of Mill Rogue. With the right support, this card looks really powerful.
      What do you guys think about this first card reveal from Rise of Shadows?
    • By Zadina
      After the announcement of Rise of Shadows, Peter Whalen answered several questions on Twitter.
      A new piece of information is that there will be no Hero cards in the upcoming expansion. Rise of Shadows will follow the trend set from previous expansions, with 2 Legendary cards per class and 5 neutral Legendaries.
      One of the new mechanics of Rise of Shadows are Scheme cards that upgrade each turn they are in your hand. Apparently, they can upgrade forever! They also work with end-of-turn effects like Drakkari Enchanter (source). If you play Krag'wa, the Frog after you play Hagatha's Scheme, you will get a copy of the base form of the card (source).
      As far as Lackeys are concerned, these new token minions are all 1-mana 1/1 and they can only be generated from other cards.
      After clarifying that the smart deck builder doesn't support Wild for now, Peter Whalen launched into an extensive series of tweets about Hearthstone's Wild mode. The team is trying to keep Wild mode a place where everything is allowed, but at the same time they want to regulate stuff like Aviana, Naga Sea Witch, Yogg-Saron, Hope's End and Raza the Chained to maintain some sanity. No surprise there: Barnes has also been under the radar for a while. You can find the Twitter thread here.
      Lastly, there are no plans for now to give Wild cards as rewards, but this may change.
