Malygos Shaman and why you don’t see it around

hearthstone 4 - Malygos Shaman and why you don't see it around

I've started with the idea of Malygos Shaman since Boomsday came out and tinkered with the deck.

The deck simply didn't work back then for multiple reasons:

  • You couldn't ever draw you combo pieces
  • You were forced to use subpar minions to attempt at drawing
  • Eureka would never work because you used so many minion to draw and remain clogged up in the hand

Things improved greatly with Rastakhan Rumble. Why? Spirit of the Frog.

I was dubious about Frog because how would you draw the cards you want while not wasting your burn spells? Beakered Lightning.

Suddenly, you can use Elementary Reaction to draw storm or heal. You can use those to draw Hex. Volcano will draw you Eureka and so on.

Turns out, that you are not supposed to use Storm Chaser and company to draw your cards. The fewer minions you have in the deck. The more chances you have to pull off Eureka.

So I ditched Storm Chaser and went with only 5 minions in the deck.

Ok, frog draws you the spell; but who draws Malygos or the frog? Witchwood Piper is the answer.

The strategy is easy:

Draw frog with witchwood piper. Use frog or multiple ones to get better deal in town than Auctioneer. Draw Eureka with Volcano if you don't have it in hand. Draw Malygos with another piper. Buy yourself a clear turn with no overload thanks to heal and Hex. Proceed with Eureka and 4 one mana spells to deal exact 30 damage.

With this approach of fewer minions, the deck actually functions.

The problem?

Well, now that the deck starts functioning, the result is not enough and you would lose to too many things

  • Armor ( druid)
  • Armor ( warrior)
  • Skulking Geist ( Even Warlock)
  • Skulking Geist ( Control Mage)

So yeah

This deck is unconventional because is a combo deck that is more favored against aggro than it is against control (warrior at least, the rest are easy)

If you're a fan of combo decks like Clone Priest. Have a look at this deck.
