 Can someone please explain why the deck list uses Soulfire instead of Darkbomb if the idea is to generate card advantage?

It isn't designed to get card advantage, quite the opposite, not sure what gave you that impression.

Oh, I thought the idea was to gain card advantage through favorable trades.

 

Ignoring that though, I still am interesting in why the deck list features Soulfire instead of Darkbomb. I've only played Zoo like 50 games or so and am hesitant about replacing it because, as mentioned, I'm not a seasoned deck builder.

The favourable trading is to build a board advantage, but a Zoo player will almost always be extremely low on cards. That's what makes Soulfire good, since you will spend most of the game with 1 or 2 cards in hand, you can usually play out your whole hand before casting it so that it ends up discarding nothing.

With the inclusion of Annoy-o-tron in the deck, I think Voidwalker has lost its potential. I swapped it with Voidcaller - the benefits of this are quite powerful, although I'm replacing a 1-mana minion with a 4-mana. In a perfect scenario at 4 mana these days most people now play a 4/5 minion or a piloted shredder - both beating your Voidcaller and summoning a free Doomguard for you, then at 5 you've got a 5/7 on the board and 5 mana to still spring other surprizes for your opponent. Not to mention that the Voidcaller still enhances your undertakers if you didn't get them early in some kind of misfit starting hand.

Undertaker is a vital part of this deck. Obviously, you can try to replace it with something, but it is very hard. Pulling out a good Undertaker start is 90% win against most deck without hard removal. I'd really suggest you investing in the appropriate wing of Naxx for it.

Was the strategy for this deck copied and pasted? It's all correct but it mentions argent squire when this deck doesn't actually run it..

Hello everyone,

 

Could someone please explain me this:

 

30 Jan. 2015: Changed 2 x Undertaker, 2 x Leper Gnome for 2 x Argent Squire, 2 x Shattered Sun Cleric.

 

How the new deck should look like ? It seems that it wasn't updated yet.

 

What do you think ?

May i replace the Enhance-o Mechano with Ragnaros the Firelord? It's better to have at least one late game card.

Hi Sottle. Thanks for the decks. I'm knew so I can't get past 15 with this deck. You mention Imp Boss in the strategy but it's not in the deck list. FYI thank you.

      Sindorei Council, a family-friendly and socially active guild has been active since 7/24/2007 (BC drop), currently 7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, and 5/10 NH.  Seeking DPS (notably ranged) for completion of Heroic and preparation to move on Nighthold.  
      We are not a hardcore progression guild - have never been and don't seek to create that atmosphere.  We are an incredibly welcoming social guild with a core raid component of very skilled players who have enough real-life going on that one night/week (occasionally 2) is what we push for.   We've reached our current raid progression on essentially one night/week. 
      Are you a good fit?  If you enjoy playing your class very well, are reliable to be on at the given time(s), yearn for a fun PG atmosphere in Gchat and Discord with mostly adults, and feel like one (occasionally 2) night per week is ideal for the time you want to put into raiding then we may be a good fit for you.  We help others get better and push people to have fun in guild, raiding or not ( be it through Questing, M+, WQ's, Roics, Pet Battles, etc.). We know our members' backstories and strive to make our guild a family.  Very active FB page and Discord.  
      Schedule:   Current main core raid night is Thursday from 7:30 EST - 10:30 EST (Bloodhoof Server time).  Sunday nights are an alternative night for us.
      Progress:  7/7 (H)EN, 2/3 (H)ToV, 5/10 NH
      Loot:  All Personal - hand down to people who need 
      NEEDS: 
      - Ele Shaman
      - Mage (Fire or Frost)
      - SPriest
      - Boomkin
      - Hunter
      - Arms Warrior w/ Prot offspec (another skilled dps that is comfortable off spec as Tank works well also (Feral/Guardian, WW/BM, etc.)
      Interested?:
      BTAG: Lorienawk#1319 or Mango#1525.  
      Thanks and Happy Hunting!
