 Hey, this is my first time posting so be nice :)

Posted this since have not seen any other detailed guide on this kind of deck.


12.12. Removed 1x Ultimate Infestation added 1x Innervate, added some info to Mulligan guide.

11.12. Added in a special usage note for some cards. If you are unsure of some other cards please post a comment and i will try to clarify.

9.12. Removed 1x Greedy Sprite added 1x Faceless Manipulator Added in Faceless Manipulator combo.

General idea of the deck:

You are supposed to use different combinations of Malygos, Ixlid, Fungal Lord and Evolved Kobold combined with your Twig of the World Tree to kill your opponent in 1 turn.

For example for complete 30 damage OTK you can:

Play Malygos (+5 Spell Damage) -> Break Twig of the World Tree (Refresh Mana) -> Swipe (9 Damage) -> Swipe (9 Damage) -> Moonfire (6 Damage) -> Moonfire (6 Damage)

Play Ixlid, Fungal Lord -> Play Evolved Kobold (+2 Spell Damage) -> Gets copied for another +2 Spell Damage -> Break Twig of the World Tree (Refresh Mana) -> Play Malygos (+5 Spell Damage) -> Gets copied for another + 5 Spell Damage -> Moonfire (15 Damage) -> Moonfire (15 Damage)

Play Ixlid, Fungal Lord -> Play Faceless Manipulator on Ixlid, Fungal Lord -> Summons total of 3x Ixlid, Fungal Lord -> Break Twig of the World Tree -> Play Malygos (+5 Spell Damage) -> Summon 3 more Malygos (+15 Spell Damage) -> Moonfire (21 Damage) -> Moonfire (21 Damage)

These combos of course require you to get all of the cards mentioned, but very rarely does your opponent have 30 HP when its time to OTK, there will always be occasional smorcing to the face, so you could have an OTK with sub optimal setup too, always count how much damage you could do right now.

For example i have won a game by playing:

Malygos (+5 Spell Damage) -> Breaking Twig of the World Tree -> playing Evolved Kobold (+2 Spell Damage) -> Swipe (11 Damage) -> Moonfire (8 Damage) -> Moonfire (8 Damage) for a total of only 27 Damage.

Usage of some cards:


Swipe might seem like its a really important part of the combos, but usually i find a OTK setup using only 1 or sometimes 0 Swipe. It is a bit hard to describe when it is okay to use it, but as you can see from the combos listed above Swipe is only part of one of the total 30 damage OTKs. So sometimes when the situation could require a swipe for easy clean, it might be very good to use it.

For example:

If i have Ixlid, Fungal Lord, 2x Moonfire, Swipe and 2x Evolved Kobold in hand, i am much closer to a moonfire otk than i am to a swipe one, and as a Evolved Kobold requires you to only have 1 of the 2 cards, you might even use a Swipe+Evolved Kobold to clean the board and buy you extra time to find an OTK.


This card can only be okay to play from hand if that prevents opponent from killing you, As this card is required for all of the complete OTK setups and will always be usefull in killing your opponent.

Branching Paths

You guys are probably familiar with a priest spell known as Greater Healing PotionBranching Paths can be exactly the same thing when you pick the armor option 2 times. But Branching Paths has the extra utility of drawing 2 cards if armor is not needed, with a Gadgetzan Auctioneer you can draw 3 cards.

Note: There is a pause between card draws of Branching Paths so you can first see what you draw and then decide whether to heal for 6 or draw another card. Does not trigger Gadgetzan Auctioneer twice.

Faceless Manipulator + Ixlid, Fungal Lord:

If you play Ixlid, Fungal Lord -> Then Faceless Manipulator you summon in total 3x Ixlid, Fungal Lord 

-> Then play Malygos for a total of 4 (+20 Spell Damage)


At the moment i have very mixed feelings about running UI (Ultimate Infestation) in the deck, since I have maybe had 2 or 3 times ever when i have been able to use it due to the very heavy draw in this deck, in the other hand on paper it seems VERY strong.

Card replacements:

Don't have Twig of the World Tree? Well you are in the wrong deck mate.

Don't have Malygos? I'm sorry but Malygos is sadly not replaceable.

Don't have Malfurion the Pestilent? No worries, Add in another Naturalize, Spreading Plague or UI, for example or anything you feel like you need. Maybe even 1x Jade Idol.

Don't have Ixlid, Fungal Lord? Well then you should probably take off 2x Evolved Kobold too since you cannot copy those for the 30 Damage OTK. You should add more armor generation or Jades.

Can i run Jades? Yes, yes you can. You should replace 2x Greedy Sprite with 2x Jade Blossom. Then you can either swap Ixlid, Fungal Lord and 2x Evolved Kobold  or Spreading Plague or UI if you are not finding them usefull, for 2x Jade Idol and maybe Aya Blackpaw if you want.

You could also run Oaken Summons, but then you take out the 2x Mire Keeper and the Evolved Kobold probably, can swap for Jades or Recruitable cards.

Mulligan Guide:

First of all Twig of the World Tree is the most important keep, but do not specifically look for it, usually you want to keep all other combo pieces you draw too but do not specifically look for them either.

Also keep any ramp like Wild Growth etc.

If you think you are against Aggro: 

Keep all of the cheap removal like Wrath and Jasper Spellstone.


This deck has a really hard time against against decks like Control Warrior that generate more HP than 30.

Lastly, if you have any ideas, question or suggestions, feel free to post them in the comments :) Thank you for reading!
