In the card swaps section it states that a second Dr. Boom can be included. Is that correct?

I have the similar deck to this one, im running with dark iron dwarf instead of gormok and harvest golems in place of imp gang boss. anyway, this deck is doing pretty good, only handlock and renolock is 100 percent lose for me. any advice vs that matchup?

Yes, the value is too high to be overlooked. Just imagine it: turn 6 Coin into Boom, turn 7 Boom, turn 8 easy victory. No? Ok, the "second" shouldn't be there. One should be enough.

I'm running it with Piloted shredder instead of Gormok (which I don't have) and it's doing great. I'm not even sure Gormok would be better honestly, but I can't try so..

One thing about this deck is that it gives you so many options during the game that it's hard to blame it when you loose since it gave you so many choices and possibilities :)

The playstyle seems to me much more flexible and powerful than that of Sea Giants or Voidcaller versions.

I know it will make the deck a bit weaker but if I run Dark Iron Dwarf instead of Gormok the Impaler and replace Void Terror and maybe one Imp-losion(I don't know if I'll be able to craft 2 and I don't want to craft even just one if it's not worth) with a card between these 3: Silver Hand Regent, Imp Master or Harvest Golem, do you guys think it will be better than my 2 other Zoo decks?

DID instead of Gormok is fine, many people actually prefer it. I ran it that way myself in a 30k tournament recently.

Harvest Golem, Silent Knight and Argent Horserider are the best choices to replace cards around that Mana slot you're looking at. Double Implosion is really important though for a lot of matchups.

Yes I know... I just don't have the dust for it... I settled to give a go at that neat Fast Discard Zoo since it works wonders with just one

Did you mean to say something else instead of putting in "a second Dr. Boom"? Dr. Boom's a legendary minion.
Btw, thank you for putting all these deck lists up.

Haha whoops. Yeah obviously the "a second" part of that sentence is just not supposed to be there.

Hi there,

Is there any card good enough to replace Doomguard? I don't have any and I'm low on dust.

hi there,

 

do you think a reliquary seeker fit in this deck? i usually chose it from peddler and it has good synergy with implosion, so i thought why not include it in the first place. if yes, what to replace it for?

 

thanks for the great work btw.

It isn't reliable enough to be included and therefore is a winmore card. However, you can use her in Flood Zoo.

I have created my own rendition of this deck but I have not been able to play with it much. I am trying to make this deck viable for the upcoming "Standard" game mode. Any current cards that absolutely need to be in the deck that are not in GvG or NAXX? Thanks guys!

I recently created a deck, kinda like this one. The only catch for me is that I am trying to do so without GvG or Naxx. Any suggestions for a Zoo deck without either GvG or Naxx?

Zoo without Naxx is really bad and not worth trying. If you want to try it anyway, use 2x DID, 2x Shredder, a late-game threat and 2x Argent Squire. Dragon decks will be in my opinion a stronger force in Standard.

RIP zoo from standard sad.pngsad.pngsad.pngsad.png

My buddy Namenemas and I think that there will be new cards released for Zoo in the future expansion, so we don't really see it that pessimistically.

I don't think Zoo will die. It will surely slow down and the general power level will be going down. Then again this is the case for everything else, so I don't see a problem there. We don't know anything about the upcoming expansion so I prefer to not take it into account. Don't forget they want to balance Basic and Classic cards, so the game WILL be changing a lot, we'll see when we get there!

I play this deck with Mukla's Champion as a replacement for the impaler at it synergizes very well with imp implosion and the imp boss.

Zoo will always persist, it's survived and been a high tier deck throughout every expansion, the core strategy is just too strong.

May want to replace doomguards with arcane golems if you aren't running voidcallers.

      We have a new Tavern Brawl this week! Its name is Spellbook Duel.
      For this Brawl, you choose your class and then you pick 10 different cards to fill your deck. Instead of drawing cards each turn, you Discover a copy of a card from your deck. If you use card drawing mechanics, like Arcane Intellect, you don't actually draw from your deck. You will, in fact, get a 1-mana spell called Peruse, which again allows you to Discover a copy of a card from your deck.
      Obviously, there are a lot of possible deck combinations you can use to tackle this new Tavern Brawl. The first things that pop into mind are anything that contains Reno Jackson and Kazakus, as well as Jade Druid to extend the possibility of getting these precious Jade Idols. Once again, Mage is the clear winner of this Brawl with cards like Sorcerer's Apprentice, Arcane Intellect and Flamewaker.
      Bear in mind that some cards are not recommended, since they remove cards from your Discover pool. Examples are Fel Reaver and Tracking. Moreover, cards that put another card directly into play, like Mysterious Challenger and Mad Scientist, will also make your Discover pool smaller. Lastly, according to a Reddit user, Renounce Darkness won't deduct 1 mana from the cards you discover throughout the game.
      There are already a lot of disgusting decks for Spellbook Duel out there. We are waiting for your suggestions and any other useful info in the comments!
