I'm kinda sceptical about Dr Boom in a Zoo deck, would't Sea Giant or even a Stormwind Champion be a better late drop seeing as they perfectly synergize with Implosion and Imp gang boss ?

I don't know how to answer that except "no".

 

Well, I guess I do. Sea Giant is vulnerable to one off removal like Big Game Hunter or Execute, Dr. Boom is at least resistant by leaving the Boom Bots in play. Stormind Champion is great when you have a big board out, but it's win more by definition (same with Sea Giant to an extent), if you already have a big board to to buff with Stormwind, you're probably just winning anyway.

Dr. Boom is the best big drop in a variety of situations, empty board, board in your favour, even board, and needing to catch up.

Sea Giant :)

Second Shredder is also fine, Dark Iron Dwarf. Any of the higher cost Zoo cards that are left out of this deck.

I've just spent my last 100 dust on an Imp-Losion, but I lack a second one. What can i put instead? Soulfire?

Also what do you think about using Enhance-o Mechano and Dragon Eggs in Zoo?

Dragon Egg doesn't seem good to me, but I haven't had a chance to test it fully. Enhance-O is okay, but it's a pretty weak topdeck when you don't already have the board.

Soulfire or Darkbomb is ok until you have second Implosion.

I've been having a ton of success with this deck. Best Zoo deck I've played, IMO.

 

I don't Hearth much, usually just get the dailies but was doing so well I decided to keep playing as long as I continued winning. First session like that I went from rank 5 to 3, and then today went from 3 to 1 star away from rank 1. My MMR has to be insane right now.

I have everything for this deck, except Dr.Boom. Would Jaraxxus be good enough instead?

I didnt have Dr. Boom so I used Kel'thuzad. It's been working great for me so far.

IMO, for those without Boom a good choice (suggested also from Sottle here above) is the second Piloted Shredder. It is great versus AOE removal like the damn Flamestrike :D

I've been playing double Volcanic Drakes on all my Zoo decks so far, and it's been terrific. I Almost always summon them fro 2 mana or even for free.

1-2 taunt card against this deck and lose 100%

 

You realise you're criticising one of the oldest and most successful deck archetypes in the entire game right?

Here's a list of ways you can deal with a Taunt.

- Ironbeak Owl to Silence and push damage.

- Buff cards: Abusive Sergeant, Dire Wolf Alpha, Power Overwhelming etc. Abusive Sergeant on a Flame Imp clears a Sen'jin or the relevant half of a Belcher, Power Overwhelming on a 1/1 Imp does the same.

- Dr. Boom, Loatheb etc on board

- Imp-losion

- Doomguard from hand

What about changing the lepper gnome for a clockwork gnome? I prefer to have an spare part than hitting 2 to the face.

 

In my oppinion there are some spare parts that have more value than hitting 2 to the face.

 

What do you think about it Sottle?

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.
      Daxxarri
      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
