Heyo, I used this deck to climb to legend for June 2020. (I also used Quest Warlock, but with only a 48% WR). So I guess it would be "Bronze 10 --> Legend".

Deck Intro:

To keep things nice and short, this is a typical Galakrond Rogue using the stealth package and a Malygos OTK. Last month, I tried to run a similar list without the secret package, and also using Umbral Skulker. However, this earlier iteration was running into problems with late game card draw and assembling the combo consistently, so I added the powerhouse Greyheart Sage

The overall plan of the deck is, as you probably already know, is to combo-kill using Malygos and Sinister Strike(s) and/or Eviscerate(s). While the early game plays the same as any other Stealth Galakrond Rogue, the late game typically revolves around assembling the combo through cost reduction effects (including the incredibly rare use of Escaped Manasaber for an extra mana). It is useful to count the damage in your hand often, as you might be sitting on lethal without Malygos and not even notice.

Flex Slots: Preparation, Sap, and Bone Wraith.


Mulligan Guide:

Always keep Greyheart Sage

Usually mulligan away Sinister Strike, PreparationKronx Dragonhoof, Malygosand Heistbaron Togwaggle.

Demon Hunter: Want Backstab, Seal Fate, and Spymistress.

Druid: Want Edwin VanCleef, Escaped Manasaber, and Flik Skyshiv (for Glowfly Swarm). 

Hunter: BackstabSeal Fate, Devoted Maniac and Shield of GalakrondPray that it's Highlander and not Face. 

Mage: Skyvateer, Shield of Galakrond, and Galakrond, the Nightmare. (Just want value :D)

Paladin: Skyvateer, Seal Fate, and Sap (for Libram'd Minions).

Priest: Same as Mage^. Play for value and OTK. This is the deck's best matchup IMO.

Rogue: Also very similar to Mage and Priest^^. I haven't played against many Malygos Rogue lists in ranked, so the mirror match is in your favor with the OTK potential of this list. Flik Skyshiv's battlecry will hit your copies as well as the opponents. 

Shaman: Want Flik SkyshivSkyvateerSeal Fate, and Shield of Galakrond

Warlock: SkyvateerEscaped Manasaber, and Shield of Galakrond to establish a board presence, but be careful not to overextend. If you're against QuestLock, your Malygos OTK is faster and easier to assemble. 

Warrior: This is the worst match-up in my opinion. Luckily, I have seen a decline in Wrenchcalibers played against me recently. Want to play a mid-range gameplan benching off Greyheart Sages, Flik Skyshivand Invoke triggers. Backstab is underwhelming.

Legend Proof

7/15 Edits: F's in the chat for recent nerfs. Galakrond draw was pretty overpowered (and the nerfs were definitely fair) but wow did they hurt this list. Because of the inconsistent OTK potential when Malygos is not discounted, as spells will cost 1 instead of 0, I replaced Bone Wraith with a copy of Umbral Skulker to enable more 25+ damage turns.
