The Spiteful Nerf made a viable deck out of the OTK Malygos Druid in the current meta. The idea is to complete Jungle Giants, play Barnabus the Stomper and finally play your OTK Combo with Ixlid, Fungal Lord, Malygos, Faceless Manipulator and Moonfire. You’ll have 31 damage in total, 62 damage with two Moonfires. Our player Yannic "shianna" Lott reached Legend in a very short time with this deck.



The Deck


Key cards

Moonfire: pure damage output

Jungle GiantsCard Name: Allows you to play your combo minions for 0 mana.

Faceless Manipulator: Multiply your damage output!

Ixlid, Fungal Lord: Because you can never have enough Malygos on your board.

Malygos: All hail the aspect of the OTK!


Other cards

Lesser Jasper Spellstone: great synergies and a lot of damage potential

Wild Growth: for tempo and late game card draw

Wrath: for board control and draw

Ferocious Howl: Card draw, fits perfectly with your general game plan.

Cursed Disciple: Supports you in finishing the quest.

Oaken Summons: another quest support

Swipe: for board control and even a possible combo card with Malygos

Corrosive Sludge: To counter Aluneth and Skull of the Man’ari.

Fatespinner: Solid 5-drop to stabilize the board.

Harrison Jones: same as Corrosive Sludge but with important card draw

Nourish: more tempo (mana) or card draw for your combo

Spreading Plague: Great against aggressive decks, buys you time for your combo.

Malfurion the Pestilent: great for board control

The Lich King: strong 8-drop with great late game spells

Ultimate Infestation: armor, board presence and card draw


Why not…

  • playing a second Ultimate Infestation?
    • You’ll mostly have more than 6 cards in your hand what will make you overdraw when playing Ultimate Infestation. A second one would often be a dead card on your hand.
  • playing a second Wrath?



Keep the Quest and search for Wild Growth, Cursed Disciple and Oaken Summons.

Avoid: Malygos, Ixlid, Fungal Lord and Faceless Manipulator


when facing Rogue or Paladin: keep Spreading Plague, Swipe or Fatespinner when you’ve got one of the top cards secured.

when facing Mage: keep Wrath

when facing Warlock: keep Corrosive Sludge or Harrison Jones


Match ups & game plans


Shudderwock Shaman: Draw as many cards as possible to be the first to play the combo.

Odd Rogue: unfavoured match-up - Don’t go for combo but for board control.

Paladin: unfavoured match-up - same game plan as against Odd Rogue

Spell Hunter: Watch out for the secrets and try to play around Freezing Trap or Wandering Monster by skipping an attack.

Cube Druid: most of the times you can use one of your Faceless Manipulators to copy one of his strong minions (e.g. Charged Devilsaur, Carnivorous Cube) since you’ll still have enough damage for your OTK.

Control Warlock: favoured match-up - When he’s about to play Azari, the Devourer consider to overdraw with Ultimate Infestation as you’re going to lose the cards anyway.

Cubelock: favoured match-up - make sure to get as much value as possible out of Spreading Plague.

Tempo Mage: even match-up - go for board control instead of combo, use Moonfire to trigger Counterspell.

Control Mage: favoured match-up - try to trade your Cursed Disciple as fast as possible to save it from Polymorph.

Quest Priest: favoured match-up - Draw as many cards as possible to find your combo pieces.

Control Priest: Once again, go for your combo but gather some armor so you can’t be killed by his Shadowreaper Anduin and Mind Blast.

Warrior: Mostly Control Warrior, which is an easy target for your combo.
