Weekly Legends: Malygos Rogue!

Preview

For those of you that don’t know, I love Malygos. Aboslutely love, love, love Malygos. In addition (and this opinion is not very popular in the world of Hearthstone) I also really enjoy playing all versions of Miracle Rogue. So, as you can imagine, I am automatically going to gravitate toward any deck that puts both of those things together. LOE really did something amazing to Hearthstone. Not only did it shift the meta, but it brought a ton of new archetypes with it. While I love exploring the new, I also really enjoy when the game shifts in a way that can blend the old and the new together. This version of Malygos Rogue (made by Superjj) does that by bringing together three distinct different play styles into one list. It takes all of the things that made the classic Miracle Rogue good, and then blends them with elements from both Malygos Rogue and Oil Rogue. That collaboration really strengthens this deck and turns it into a well-tuned machine.

While this deck may feel familiar, it pilots very differently from most Rogue decks. Like Rogue, you are using your spells to advance the board, push damage through, and ultimately set up your final burst. However, as Malygos is your main finisher, you also want to spend most of the game stalling. Why? Because you are mostly playing to two different “key points”. The first of those points is getting Gadgetzan Auctioneer down and using the goblin’s ability to draw half-a-million cards. While not a direct win condition in itself, it is very hard to lose the game once you go off with the six drop. Beyond Auctioneer, you are of course playing towards Malygos himself. The dragon is the way you win 99% of your games. As such, after drawing your cards (or even if you don’t have Auctioneer) you are just going to everything you can to make sure you can play the dragon and a flurry of spells in the same turn, winning the game on the spot.

    Although I really love Miracle Rogue, I’m sceptic about the winrate of this deck against the most played ones on ladder. Then, do you think it is good enough to climb the ladder right now ?

      Honestly, a lot of that has to do with personal skill when piloting Rogue in addition to what you are currently seeing. For instance, I think a very skilled Rogue player could easily pilot this list up the ranks. Someone who is not as adept with the class or with combo decks should probably hold off. However, if you are playing a lot of aggro, I would cut a healbot for a farseer. I think it’s the best choice.

        Yes for sure. However, I play Miracle Rogue since closed beta and I think that regarding the meta, it may be too inconsistent against the most popular decks on the ladder to be worth using it.
