Hello! I'm James1, a 12 times legend player. I'm very excited for Miracle Malygos Druid with the release of Raven Idol. Gadgetzan Auctioneer will always be my favourite card and Combo/Miracle will always be my favourite archetype. This deck is very good in current standard format. I Achieve rank 1 none-legend on the 29th April. I'll take it to legend next season.
Raven Idol will be a amazing cycle with Gadgetzan Auctioneer. Moreover , Raven Idol will also discover key damage cards for Malygos combo. Malygos Druid has always suffered with limited damage as you often blow 1 or 2 damage spell as removal. Raven Idol can potentially fix this problem and cycle too! synergy is over 9000.
Malygos + 2 Moonfire + 2 Living Roots = 26 damage. Because we can't guarantee that these cards can be saved, the deck aims to draw damage using Raven Idol! ( With Gadgetzan Auctioneer on board to cycle and generate card advantage). You shouldn't think the deck relies solely on Malygos combo, between Violet Teacher, Druid of the Claw and Ancient of Lore the deck runs a very solid mid game, which will inevitably chip at the opponents health.
Raven Idol discover picks
Raven Idol will be release with the Hall of Explorers wing on the 10th/11th of December! Upon casting Raven Idol there is 11.1% for getting a spell specific card. Fun fact it will also be possible to re-discover Raven Idol, this may be relevant if you're searching for combo pieces or cycling with Gadgetzan Auctioneer in later turns.
- After casting raven idol once, there is a 24% chance of get either Moonfire or Living Roots.
- After casting raven idol twice, there is a 42.2% chance of get either Moonfire or Living Roots once.
- After casting raven idol twice, there is 5.76% of get either Moonfire or Living Roots twice. For example 2 Moonfire or 2 Living Roots or 1 of each.
Its important to note that these percentages include Raven Idol re-rolls for burn. For example you can cast raven idol, discover a raven idol and recast it if no burn was available the first time.
Starfire and Nourish are tier 3 and are fairly useful in slower match ups.
Power of the Wild can be a tier 1/2 if Violet Teacher combo is possible. Another niche card would be Healing Touch, the 8 heal against face hunter is huge.
The rest belong in the bin bag with the blizzard development team, kappa. To summarise : there's 11 spell cards we want from Raven Idol, and because we get the choice of three the likely hood of getting a tier 1 or 2 card is very high (a 80.85% chance).
Power of the Wild is another card that could be included. It has great synergy with Violet Teacher, however playing a 2 mana 3/2 is awful in today's meta.
Wild Pyromancer another great card for stopping aggro deck. Considering the abundance of spells its definitely could find a home in this deck.
Play guide and Mulligan (I'll update as I go along)
The most Important rule : You MUST scream "I'm the essence of magic" at the top of your lungs, as you slam Malygos and proceed to stick 3 damage spell card up the arse of your opponent. If you don't your play the deck wrong.
Typically you might want to save The Coin for either Violet Teacher or Gadgetzan Auctioneer combo. However, you may need to coin for tempo against fast decks.
In general you want Wild Growth, Innervate , Keeper of the Grove and Violet Teacher. An example of a great all round hand (Note this hand is pre Raven Idol release, Power of the Wild could easily be Raven Idol) :
V.s control keep Emperor Thaurissan with coin. Vs warlock consider keeping Big Game Hunter and Keeper of the Grove for Mountain Giant and Twilight Drake respectively.
V.s Aggro keep wrath, swipe and living roots. The hand below would be amazing against face hunter, paladin or Zoo.
If Wild Growth is played on turn 10 with Gadgetzan Auctioneer you will gain an Excess Mana card and draw 1 card . Upon playing excess mana, you will drawn 2 additional cards. Totalling 3 draws for 2 mana.
Thanks for reading!
