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?

      A few days ago I posted a cheap priest deck. I have no idea how many actually have been interested in it but maybe we had some none registered visitors who knows. So here another deck. Again inspired by Chump but I had a similar deck before. Compared to Chumps' version I replaced 2x Twilight Summoner with 2x Spawn of N'Zoth (beause Epics are not budget :D) and I didn't want to craft Forbidden Ritual myself so I've put in 2 commons instread, Mortal Coil and Zealous Initiate.
      It's technically a Zoo but it plays differently which is a nice change to the "we know it all" stuff :)
      Total Arcane Dust Cost: 1500
      2x Flame Imp 1x Mortal Coil 2x Possessed Villager 2x Sanguine Reveler 2x Voidwalker 1x Zealous Initiate 2x Dire Wolf Alpha 2x Volatile Elemental 2x Darkshire Councilman 2x Devilsaur Egg 2x Spawn of N'Zoth 2x Unwilling Sacrifice 1x Void Terror 2x Ravenous Pterrordax 1x Cobalt Scalebane 2x Despicable Dreadlord 2x Bonemare Deck Code: AAECAf0GBMQIxQmNrQLKywINMNkHwgi0rAL2rgKNrwLnwQKrwgK0xAKXywL3zQKmzgKJ4gIA
      Guide:
      This deck is basically a Zoo, you can find a well written guide here, but maybe somewhat slower and less reliable due to the fact that you need to combo with your deathrattle cards but the value you get out of them should make up for it. As with any Zoo deck you want to put early pressure on your opponent and establish board control with cheap minions and playing on curve.
      In your starting hand you want to see a couple of 1 mana minions and a 2 (and/or maybe a 3 mana cost) mana cost to put something on the board and plan for your next turns. Flame Imp is always a good choice as well as Sanguine Reveler and a 1, 2 or maybe a 3 mana deathrattle minion to combo with. Against more aggressive decks a Voidwalker could be a good choice as well, against slower decks you might consider to keep a Devilsaur Egg. To be able to play a Darkshire Councilman on turn 3 is great too.
      You have good tools to maintain board control (besides the minions you already have) like Volatile Elemental which has great synergy with your cannibal cards like Ravenous Pterrordax. Unwilling Sacrifice is a bit like Deadly Shot and needs accurate play to be not a waste but the potential value you can get out of it is great. And later in the game Despicable Dreadlord helps a lot to maintain board control.
      Have fun :)
