When I first thought of a deck built around Malygos the first thing in my mind was that there was no one someone could hold on to spells long enough for it to even work. But after seeing the Bite's, Claw's and most importantly Alextraxas (however you spell it) it makes a lot more sense, and for you to be Rank 2 must reflect that it is viable, although I wouldn't personally play this style, it is interesting nonetheless.

A true reflection of how deep this game can become with a truly creative player is motivated. I too am waiting for a chance to get to work with building decks, but I have been playing for over a month and have yet to receive a single legendary so...
Oh thanks for catching me on that! I missed that. I was rank 2 on the ladder when I posted the deck. I'm not rank 2 in legendary, I'm rank 67 I think now (I was rank 46 when I first moved into legendary). I've decided not to grind legendary, and to simply stay in the top 100 inactive for now. I would have to re-evaluate the metagame to get back into playing, which might require a little deck tweaking, but I would continue to play this deck and expect to hit top 40 with it if I were grinding legendary. That's a realistic expectation.
I think I've underestimated in my guide how difficult the deck is to play, and so I think players who are trying the deck out aren't understanding why certain cards are chosen over other cards. I think I will need to post some games to YouTube to demonstrate certain plays.
Any chance you can youtube some of your matches.
I ended up replacing wild growths for a BGH and faceless. I'll try and make a malygnos and alex later in that order. Im actually interested in how Malygnos.
My playstyle with the deck is to just hero power as much as I can and try and hold the spells for when I can land a auctioneer.
For example if your opponent played a harvest golem T3 and you have wrath and moon would you use both to kill it. I just let the broken golem sit there for a turn and only use wrath but maybe I shouldnt use either..
I dunno how dependant it is on malygnos but im dead before turn 9 alot so...
I'll see what I can do. Big game hunter isn't a bad choice, nor is faceless, those works alright for what you want to do. Malygos is a pretty big one not to put into the deck though, but it can be done: He's not absolutely necessary. In fact, faceless is an interesting substitute depending on the meta.
Don't hold the spells 100% of the time. I hold them and use my hero power as much as possible, but I *NEVER* attack a 3/2 with my hero power if I'm not killing the 3/2 on the same turn. If my opponent has a 3/2 on the field and I have a choice between killing it with a small spell or hero powering and attacking their life, I usually kill the 3/2 instead even if I have Gadgetzan in my hand.
That final play is correct. You should never use a moonfire and a wrath to kill a golem. You can use the wrath, wait a turn, and then use your hero power, but never waste the moonfire unless if you're drawing off of it with Gadgetzan.
