Hello guys, gm6 here. You can find me on ladder by the name LF7D.
Multiple legend player and Hearthstone lover.
And let me introduce you a powerful deck, which can bring you maximum joy while playing, and at the same time grief and butthurt while not recieving combo pieces :D
I played around 60 games with it. Ofcourse it is not 500 or 1000 and you can say that this sample size means nothing, but unfortunately i do not have so much time to play test decks like Popular streamers, but i have my stats with this deck and you can approximately make a picture of what it is in terms of competition. These statistics were made on the range of Legend-r5 ranks. Actual WR may be different for the other region or rank.
This is a combo deck, you need to stall the game till turn 10 or more. So at the start of the game try to be in tempo.
With the coin you want to have Pharaoh Cat, Edwin VanCleef, Backstab, Preparation.
Without coin you want to have Pharaoh Cat, Backstab, SN1P-SN4P.
There are different ways to win with this deck. First of all it is the main WC with Malygos and triple face spell damage, where you dont care about opponents board:
Malygos + Sinister Strike x2 + Eviscerate = 25 damage.
You can say that this is 13 mana, well, you have 2 tools for getting your cards cheaper:
Galakrond, Azeroth's End, Heistbaron Togwaggle with his Wondrous wound and 2x Umbral Skulker. And ofcourse Preparation.
With fully buffed galakrond you can make lethal combo even on turn 7 if you pull some needed cards because of Alexstrasza in the deck.
You should always count lethal with this deck. Especially when in the late game your opponent have less or equal 25 health. Sometimes you can finish the game even without Malygos being played. If you have a board, full of threats and eqiupped with a 5/2 Claw. Do not underestimate Kronx Dragonhoof and his additional 5 face damage or buffing your minions for even more stats, if you have at least 3 of them on board.
DO NOT play Malygos if you are not closing the game the same turn.
DO NOT play Galakrond, Azeroth's End having more than 7 cards in hand. Galakrond must be seventh card in hand to prevent burning needed combo pieces.
DO NOT play your Sinister Strike cards before Malygos. This is you finishing combo for at least 16 damage. Alexstrasza knows how to make it happen.
DO NOT be shy to play not fully buffed Galakrond if it is a matter of surviving against aggro decks.
ALWAYS count lethal and think ahead. Your main goal is to maximum decrease your opponents health, if not playing Alex and, ofcourse, stay alive till your combo.
big up to my man Kadakk for showcasing this deck and explaining some key moments:
So this is it. If you have any questions - let me know in comments. If you have any success stories with this deck, please share it. GL!
