Malygos Druid

Recommended Posts

A word of warning for those who would want to play this deck: don't waste dust crafting Twig of the World Tree or Malygos or Faceless Manipulator and only play it if you already have all these costly cards. You'll regret it otherwise. This deck is fun when you pull the combo off, but horribly inconsistent.

In a dream setup you play the twig on turn four and then burst your opponent down on turn nine, but what will actually happen is one of the following:

  • You get pushed into using your direct damage to survive and don't have enough burst left.
  • You play against a Control Warrior or Taunt Druid who laughs at you from behind 60+ armor. 
  • Malygos is too busy napping at the bottom of your deck and you'll get (censored) by any half-experienced player knowing how to play around Spreading Plague.
  • Your Twig is AWOL and you're left YOLO'ing Malygos on the board and hope he survives for one turn. The biggest chances are he won't.
  • Your Twig gets oozed, which will happen *a looooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooot* (because people ar fed up with seeing Skull of the Man'ari). Sure you've got 10 mana now, but see above as far as the combo goes.

Just like DisguisedToast's OTK Rogue deck, it's fun to try out as an alternative when you have all the cards but put simply, the lack of alternative win condition, lack of mid-game board presence or ways to contest it, almost inexistant damage out of the combo and unreliable win condition based on Twig of the World Tree  drag this deck down.

I have a golden Twig that I haven't the chance to use even once.... I don't know if dust it or try something like this deck... I have almost every card, I miss only 2 epics, maybe I could play a little budget version, and doing it in wild where I don't own the Aviana-Kun package, but I surely can play more card then standard (for example, one single Jade Idol can add a win condition against fatigue deck or everything was able to survive my combo).

      Hello everyone! When i downloaded the recent shadowlands expansion, i noticed that my macros no longer worked =0. This is not a single target DPS  macro, this is a Help / Harm selective macro So i did some digging to find out what was goin on, An example of this would be : /cast [help] Innervate ; [harm] Entangling Roots ; Innervate.  This macro utilizes one button for a dual purpose. if i am targeted on friend i innervate them while if i and targeting a opponent it would root them in place. This structure is now broken but has also made things easier in most cases, After doing some digging i discovered some new macros and the new format. Some examples of the new way to write this would be :
      /cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]innervate
      /cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Entangling Roots
      /cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]Regrowth
      /cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Wrath
      /cast [harm,nodead][@target,harm,nodead]Moonfire
      /cast [help,nodead][@target,help,nodead]Rejuvenation
      /cast [help,nodead][help,nodead]Wild Growth
      /cast [harm,nodead][harm,nodead]Entangling Roots
      This is what they call a fall through macro, If the first line of code is not available because of a cooldown or if the Help or Harm selection, it will fall through to the next line of code. This works especially well for balance druids, shaman, and hybrid healing classes that use a ton of buttons. You can cut the amount of keys you need press in half which saves space and prevents accidentally pressings the wrong button. I like to pair my spells by the time it takes to cast, Instant casts with instant casts. They also introduces a mouse over macro for heals and rebuffs which is really good for world PVP. One of the better macros iv'e seen is a mouse over Rebirth : 
       #showtooltip Rebirth
      /cast [@mouseover,help]Rebirth;Rebirth
      #showtooltip Remove Corruption
      /cast [target=mouseover,help,nodead][target=target] Remove Corruption
      If you are going to try and make your own macro, you should keep in mind
      1: The Global Cool Down or GCD which is the time it takes between 2 casts and
      2: Not all of your spells and trinkets share a GCD, so you are able to cast 2 or 3 spells at the exact same time as long as it doesn't share a GCD.
      I hope this helps!
