This is the Superjj High Legend Malygos Rogue Deck Oct 16 he was playing on stream at high legend ranks. There are a few Malygos Rogue lists going around at the moment and it’s a really decent tier-2 deck that can win vs any class with a little luck and RNG on your side.
The game plan is a simple one.
- Use removal to keep the board clear
- Drop Emperor Thaurissan on a huge hand with combo pieces in.
- Cycle your deck with Gadgetzan Auctioneer to pull your combo damage and Malygos into your hand.
- Drop Malygos and some spells with + spell damage and let the fireworks begin!
Spell Damage of Rogue Cards with Malygos on Board
Backstab – 7 damage
Sinister Strike – 8 damage
Eviscerate – 7/9 damage
Shiv – 6 damage
Fan of Knives – 6 damage
*Shadow Strike – 10 damage
*Remember that Shadow Strike can hit face if your opponent is at full health.
Looking for a Malygos Rogue list? This is the Kolento Malygos Rogue Deck Season 31 Oct 16 he was laddering up to legend with. It’s a typical Malygos Rogue list, and in this current META it’s pretty strong and a good choice to ladder up with.
The downside to Malygos Rogue vs Malygos Druid is that you often need Malygos to stick a turn or two to really get the OTK value. You can pocket some coins to help squeeze out some extra burst, see how the games play out for you and how much damage you can do in one turn.
Here is a deck that was brought to my attention by D01tY from the Hearthstone community. It’s the Thijs High Legend Dragon Warlock Deck he was playing on stream in the top 50 legend ranks.
I’ve been looking for a good Dragon Warlock build so I will be giving this a try. I’ve been playing Dragon Priest and Dragon Warrior a lot since Book Wyrm was released. This card is bonkers, there are almost always targets with 3 attack or less to remove.
I never played Malygos in a Dragon Warlock list before. In this deck it synergizes with Mortal Coil, Soulfire, and Hellfire. So not a lot of damage spells, but at 9 damage each, the soulfires can close games out.
This is the Reynad Malygos Druid w Medivh the Guardian Moonglade Portal new card inclusions. Having Medivh, the Guardian’s weapon Atiesh and playing Moonglade Portal means 2 x 6-cost minions hitting the board!
This is the J4CKIECHAN Karazhan Beast Druid w King Mukla he built and was climbing ladder with. If you have King Mukla and to put him to use this is one of the decks he works well in.
There have been a few Beast Druid lists since the new card Menagerie Warden came out and I’m still looking for a list I really like. Kolento’s Beast Druid feels a little more value orientated than this one, but I tend to empty my hand too quick without having the burst to win.
I think Beast Druid still needs to be refined, but this deck is pretty good and a load of fun to give it a go and see how you get on. If you make any changes that strengthens it let me know!
This is the current Forsen Malygos Yogg Shaman Karazhan Deck list. Malygos lists are fun and the burst damage can end any game quickly.
This deck has a lot of board clears and card draw to stall and cycle you closer to your combo pieces. It’s hard to play at first, you need to manage your overload carefully and sometimes take some extra damage to avoid overloading so you can’t do what you want the next turn.
It’s a strong deck, and Hex is really good in this META as it deals with C’Thun, Tirion, and some other minions that can be reused by opponents.
Mulligan Guide for Malygos Shaman Decks
If you’re facing aggro keep Maelstorm Portal. Always look for Far Sight and Rockbiter, and keep Feral Spirits if you have the coin.
Malygos Rogue has always been a deck on the fringe of top tier play. With the addition of Barnes it’s strengthened up a little, you have some extra early tempo potential and of course the chance for a 1/1 Malygos as early as turn 4.
Something I see some people overlooking is Shadow Strike. Don’t forget that this card can go face if you’re opponent is at full health. With Malygos on board you’re looking at the following burst damage:
Shadow Strike – 10 damage
Sinister Strike – 8 damage
Eviscerate – 9 damage
This is the CosplayGrill Karazhan Malygos Druid Deck he’s been playing on stream the last few days. Credit needs to go out to Fr0zen for coming up with the list I think, or at least playing it before Cosplaygrill.
It’s much less greedy than some of the other versions going around with Barnes and Gadgetzan Auctioneer. You can play on almost on curve and overwhelm a lot of opponents that way instead of trying to combo and cycle your way to a big finish.
I think this is a much more refined list,try switching up whatever list you’re playing and see how you get on.
Mulligan Guide for Malygos Druid
As always with Druid you want that early ramp vs most opponents. Vs Zoolock and other hyper-aggressive decks keep as much removal as you can to push the game into the later rounds.
Don’t hold on to the Moonfire if you’re under stress on the board. This deck has a lot of win conditions and you won’t win by using Malygos + Moonfire’s that often anyway.
This is the Neviilz Karazhan Malygos Shaman w Barnes Arcane Giant Deck. You can usually rely on Neviilz to build a meme deck that’s fun, and pretty damn good.
This deck has most of the pieces of a midrange Shaman build, along with the new cards Barnes, and Arcane Gaint’s. Shaman has always been a good choice for Malygos builds, the burst from Lava Burst, Lightning Storm, and Lava Shock is insane.
The deck has 20 spells, so cycling through Gadgetzan Auctioneer and reducing the cost of those Arcane Giant’s is going to happen more often than not. Give it a try and see how you get on.
General Malygos Shaman Mulligan Guide
With almost all of the early game being spells in this deck you’re going to hero power a few turns. Try to pick up Far Sight and Ancestral Knowledge, as well as a board clear like Lightning Storm vs Aggro decks.
You goal is to fill you hand and give yourself as many options as possible early into the game.
This is the RDU Malygos Druid w Barnes Arcane Giant he was playing on stream. It’s interesting to see all the Pro players testing Malygos Druid just off the back of Barnes being released.
Druid has always been one of the classes that Malygos works well in due to it’s low cost, high damage spells, and of course the chance to cheat mana and innervate.
The hope with Barnes here is that you get a 1/1 copy of Malygos, Ragnaros, Gadgetzan, Fandral, or Emperor. Any of these are you’re going to get some insane value from your cards. Barnes is better off played later in the game when you have more mana to use as soon as you drop it therefor.
