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).

      (Times pictured are in BST)
      The full schedule of community card reveals for Saviors of Uldum has been added to the Hearthstone website.
      It's become standard during expansion buildups for Blizzard to give a few cards to popular content creators to share, and Saviors of Uldum will be continuing the tradition.
      The schedule includes a total of 51 cards to be revealed by various sources from across the Hearthstone community - you can click through a card to find out where it will be revealed. The first one will be shown on the Chinese streaming platform Huya on July 19th; the first English language card reveal looks to be on Firebat's Youtube channel on the same day.
      Alongside reveal times, we get to see snippets of artwork for the new cards, so let the speculation begin. (Is that Heistbaron Togwaggle in the artwork of the final card to be revealed?)
      In Rise of Shadows, streamers received their cards locked inside fiendish puzzle boxes. This resulted in some memorable solutions. Here's hoping we have more shenanigans to look forward to.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum hub for more information on the expansion and every card revealed thus far.

      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed on Twitter, the third of four cards to be revealed as rewards for the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge.
      The Plague card for Shaman has been revealed by the Hearthstone Twitter account: Plague of Murlocs!

      This is the third card revealed as part of the FIRE FEST-E.V.I.L. community challenge. That means that in just five days, the Hearthstone playerbase has defeated around 19 millionBlackrock Crash bosses. Give yourselves a collective pat on the back. Don't stop just yet though; a fourth and final card will be revealed at 25 million boss wins (and this last one will be a Legendary).
      Plague of Murlocs itself is a pretty powerful-looking card. Shaman can't answer Mountain Giant + Conjurer's Calling with any real consistency right now, so this seems like a welcome answer - although it won't do much against opponents who are playing, well, Murloc Shaman. It could even be a buff to your own board in a pinch, since random Murlocs are probably better than Totems and 1/1s.
      Check out our Saviors of Uldum Hub to catch up on this weekend's other new card reveals, including yesterday's trio of 1-Health Paladin Minions.
