Malefic planets on 3,6,11 are also considered giving good reasults.11Th house is good for all planets. Planet who owns 6th,8th,and 12th houses or remaining in those houses are broadly mentioned as structurally malefics. But presence of a planet in any house will make that house powerful.
In Sayana system 1-5-9 houses are considered good for all planets.Now a days this view prevails.
