  • Malorne's Deathrattle shuffles him (not a copy) back into the player's deck. The location of the minion card in the deck is random.
  • If Malorne’s deathrattle is triggered by a card like Goblins vs GnomesFeign Death or Whispers of the Old GodsPrincess Huhuran, he will be removed from the board and shuffled into the player's deck, despite his not having died.[1]
  • Using NaxxramasReincarnate on Malorne will shuffle the existing copy into the player's deck, then summon a fresh copy on the board. [2]
  • Despite the visual effect, Malorne is considered to have died when killed. If Malorne dies while NaxxramasKel'Thuzad is in play, Malorne will be shuffled into the deck, and a fresh Malorne will then be summoned. Blackrock MountainResurrect also works.[3]
  • A hunter can obtain Malorne through NaxxramasWebspinner's Deathrattle or The Grand TournamentRam Wrangler's Battlecry.
  • If Malorne changes ownership before his Deathrattle resolves (for example, if he dies as a result of triggered effects from casting LegacyMind Control), he will be shuffled into the opponent's deck instead, but the animation will still show shuffling into the original controller's deck.[4]


Played in Ramp Druid as early as possible to bait Silence/removal or to play late for a recurring lategame threat, since cards like LegacyColdlight Oracle, Goblins vs GnomesGrove Tender, LegacyNourish, and Knights of the Frozen ThroneUltimate Infestation often thin these decks very quickly.

Can be used in a Journey to Un'GoroJungle Giants deck to ensure that a weighty minion will always be available for free in the case of otherwise bad draws.


Effect triggering

Malorne, or Apa'ro, is an enormous white stag that roamed the land as protector of nature. His power lay in nature itself and he is responsible for the creation and nurturing of nature in the world. He is the father of LegacyCenarius, who inherited his dominion over nature.
Furthermore, he was one of the first living beings in the world. By the time of his death, he had become one of Azeroth's most beloved and powerful demigods, and he was renowned for his wisdom.

Fixed bugs[]

  • Until Patch (LoE patch), if Malorne's Deathrattle triggered while you controlled NaxxramasBaron Rivendare, two copies would be shuffled into the player's deck.[5][6] The technical reason why this occurred is because Malorne's Deathrattle was coded the following way:
  1. Move the original Malorne to the Deck Zone (this is purely for animation purposes)
  2. Create a new Malorne Entity and shuffle it into the Deck Zone
  3. Move the original Malorne to the Setaside Zone
  • In Patch, Malorne's Deathrattle was changed to move the original Malorne to the Deck Zone, not to shuffle a new copy in. So now Malorne + Baron Rivendare puts only one copy of Malorne in your deck.[7]
  • Until Patch (WotOG patch)[8], If Malorne died while possessing additional Deathrattles such as LegacyAncestral Spirit, The League of ExplorersExplorer's Hat or LegacySoul of the Forest, the additional Deathrattles would not activate.[9][10][11] This is because Malorne's Deathrattle triggered first, and Deathrattles could not trigger while the attached minion while in the deck. Even if Malorne was drawn by a LegacyCult Master, added Deathrattles with a timestamp later than Cult Master still would not trigger.[12] For comparison, we know that added Deathrattles on minions in the hand do trigger.[13]
