Hello there! This the first time I share a deck there. I feel my creation is working pretty good so far so I wanted to share it. I climbed from 13k to 3k legend with this Highlander Malygos shaman deck.  Overall 70% winrate  over 58 games ! 

If it get support or comments I can detail the playstyle and match-ups I encounter 

Good luck on ladder !

Here is a video with 4:39 : Hunter 15:16 : Rogue 26:57 : Demon Hunter

Edit: First thanks for the support and the feedbacks! I have now 131 games with the deck (half with this version) for 60% WR. I am also working on a better version of the deck ! and will go for legend with it in june.

Pirate Warrior and Malygos Warlock became popular after I posted the deck and those are bad matchups. But still it is not the most encounter on ladder. Here is a description of matchups from best to worse: 

Demon Hunter : 75% WR. This is your best matchup. Mulligan for Serpentshrine Portal, Lightning Bolt, Zephrys the GreatAcidic Swamp Ooze and Hagatha's Scheme. Also for Marchpawn and Torrent especially if on coin or if you already have a spell to activate them. Frozen Shadowweaver and Bone Wraith might also be good keep. You need here to deal asap with all the threats he puts on the board and save your life total as much as you can.

Hunter : 65% WR. Same mulligan as for DH. This is mostly Highlander Hunter that you'll encounter (because it is one of the best deck currently) but you might find face hunters. I'd say you want Witch's Brew also

Rogue : 59% WR Rogues can't heal so you want to go for Malygos combo. Normally they don't pressure you so much in early game so look for Lady Vashj, The Fist of Ra-den,Bandersmosh, Serpentshrine Portal, Harrison Jones and Hex for Edwin VanCleef. Also fine to keep Hagatha's SchemeLightning Breath

Warlock : 58% WR You are favoured against zoo so mulligan same as Hunter/DH but lately we see more Malygos warlock so look for Zephrys the GreatLady VashjBandersmoshThe Fist of Ra-den. You want to be asap on the board to pressure his life total and try to get you malygos combo before him. Also try to keep you life total as high as possible. But most of the time they are faster than you.

Priest : 56% WR. Mostly that will be Galakrond Priest. Also I have positive WR, most of the time I'd it is a bad matchup. They can deal with all your threats and heal for a lot so it is a very difficult match. You have to be careful about Shadow Madness. Basically hard mulligan for Lady Vashj here and hope that he use Renew early so he can't heat after your Alexstrasza.

Druid : 53% WR. This is like even match up. Sometime he do druid thing and there is not so much you can do about it but you have you chances. Go for early board and AoE cards to pressure and deal with waves of Glowfly Swarm

Mage : 50% WR This is really even match up. You have better late game than him so just be ready to handle Power of Creation and Dragonqueen Alexstrasza. Also be careful about The Amazing Reno after turn 10. Go for Hagatha SchemeLady Vashj and The Fist of Ra-den in priority

Warrior : 40% WR This might be the worst machtup. Either Enrage Warrior (best deck in the game when played correctly) or this new aggro pirate warrior. Go for Same mullgan as Hunter/DH. I'd say you have better chances against enrage warrior (did not encounter a lot) Mulligan for Acidic Swamp OozeHexHarrison Jones, Zephrys the Great, Frozen Shadoweaver and Hagatha's Scheme in priority

Paladin and Shaman I have only 4 games for each so it is not very representative. Paladin you should mulligan the same as DH and hunter since it is more likely to be murlocs and keep Hex against libram. Shaman is most likely to be control so look for Lady Vashj in priority

 

Replacements : 

Lady Vashj/Alexstrasza/Jepetto Joybuzz -> Frizz Kindleroost

The Lurker Below -> Waste Warden or Siamat

Bandersmosh and The Fist of Ra-den -> Swampqueen Hagatha, Vulpera Scoundrel, Escaped Manasaber
