Innate Spellcasting. The hag's innate spellcasting ability is Charisma (spell save DC 12). She can innately cast the following spells, requiring no material components:

At will: Dancing Lights, Minor Illusion, Vicious Mockery  


Amphibious. The hag can breathe air and water.   Mimicry. The hag can mimic animal sounds and humanoid voices. A creature that hears the sounds can tell they are imitations with a successful DC 14 Wisdom (Insight) check.  


Actions

Claws. Melee Weapon Attack: +6 to hit 1d20+6 , reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 13 (2d8+4)  2d8+4  slashing damage.   Illusory Appearance. The hag covers herself and anything she is wearing or carrying with a magical illusion that makes her look like another creature of her general size and humanoid shape. The illusion ends if the hag takes a bonus action to end it or if she dies. The changes wrought by this effect fail to hold up to physical inspection. For example, the hag could appear to have smooth skin, but someone touching her would feel her rough flesh. Otherwise, a creature must take an action to visually inspect the illusion and succeed on a DC 20 Intelligence (Investigation) check to discern that the hag is disguised.   Invisible Passage. The hag magically turns invisible until she attacks or casts a spell, or until her concentration ends (as if concentrating on a spell). While invisible, she leaves no physical evidence of her passage, so she can be tracked only by magic. Any equipment she wears or carries is invisible with her.

The mhór gorta may take 1 legendary action. It's legendary action option can only be used at the end of another creature's turn. The mhór gorta regains spent legendary actions at the start of its turn.   Phantasmal Figment. The mhór gorta can focus its psychic energy on a single target as a bonus action.

The target takes 6 (1d8+1) 1d8+1 psychic damage.


Mhór Gorta are somewhat akin to treants, instead of appearing as a tree, however, they are composed mostly of large masses of decaying vines and forest matter. They are far more cunning and savage then the average treant or other plant-creatures, stalking their prey and striking at them before ever being seen. These primordial creatures resemble tall humanoids with plant-like appendages and skeletal remains of woodland creatures hanging from their bodies. Many mhór gorta will adopt a skull from a victim as their own head, growing their vine-like form into the object as a means of attaching it. The few of those who have returned to describe the mhór gorta speak of great, horned humanoids as tall as the trees, with glowing, red embers for eyes.   The term "mhór gorta" means "great famine" in the old tongue, for wherever they travel, bad luck and poor harvest usually follows them. Despite the name, the territory of most mhór gorta is verdant, even overgrown, due to its presence.

Mhór Gorta dwell in dense, primeval woods.

Creatures who survive in the magical realm of the fey long enough tend to absorb some of that magic and become changed by it. While this does not often alter their disposition or alignment, it does tend to have a wide variety of effects on them physically. For fey-touched trolls, their skin often becomes iridescent and scaly. Often they will grow exaggerated horns and claws; sometimes even coupled with the growth of vegetation from their bodies.  

Most fey-touched trolls live in environments near ley lines or inside the realm of the fey.
