Mal'Ganis inspired Arthas to take up Froustmourne and now he's joining the Nexus. Check out his spotlight to learn more about the Nathrezim Lord.

Mal'Ganis (Nathrezim Lord)
At long last, the manipulative dreadlord Mal'Ganis, deceiver of Arthas, is ready to put into motion his plans for the ripe, unsuspecting Nexus. Mal'Ganis is a life draining Warrior that specializes in disrupting his enemies to push an advantage for his team. Tread carefully when trying to outsmart a dreadlord, he'll twist fate at a moment's notice by evaporating into bats, or worse, making your life his own.
