 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.

      Diablo’s 20th Anniversary will take place in the beginning of 2017 and it will be celebrated in all other Blizzard games. Let’s take a look at the special Diablo-themed Tavern Brawl planned for Hearthstone.
      During the release of the latest Hearthstone patch, a new Diabloesque card back was discovered. According to an article by Hearthpwn, where we found all this information, this card back is  tied to an upcoming Tavern Brawl called “[The] Dark Wanderer”.

      The chalk board, heroes, hero powers and some cards of minions, spells and secrets of this upcoming Brawl have been datamined and you can find them in the same Hearthpwn article. The two players will take on the roles of the Dark Wanderer and the Cow King, two figures we all recognise from Diablo II. Presumably, the card back will be rewarded after your first victory in the Brawl.
      We are expecting this new Tavern Brawl during the first weeks of January 2017 – just like the other Diablo celebrations in Blizzard games (most notably in World of Warcraft).

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a repeat of Double Deathrattler Battler. It is a Brawl where you use your own cards to build a deck. Every Deathrattle will trigger twice.
      Although this is a repeat Brawl, it has been a long time since it was last used, September 2015 in fact, and many things in the game have changed since then. In that regard it can be treated as a fresh Brawl. I would like to see this idea of waiting a long time between reusing a Brawl be implemented more often, to help keep them fresh.
      On top of trying to win games, I expect lots of people to have fun experimenting with Weasel Tunneler, as many of its interactions do not work correctly, as per our previous article.

      It does seem as if cards from the Curse of Naxxramas adventure will be very good in this Brawl. Baron Rivendare doesn't stack however, meaning you don't get four times the Deathrattles if he is in play!
