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?

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!

      Choose your champion for the upcoming Hearthstone World Championships to win free K&C packs!
      The biggest Hearthstone tournament of the year, the Hearthstone World Championship, is just around the corner! To help build up excitement for the tournament, players may now select a champion from among the 16 world championship competitors. Each round your champion advances in the tournament will reward you with more Kobolds & Catacombs packs. You can win up to 6 packs of K&C for selecting the winner of the tournament, so choose wisely! Once you've locked in your choice it can not be changed.
      Anyone with a Battle.net account can select a champion for free until midnight on January 17th (Pacific Standard Time), and there's no downside to selecting the wrong champion. All you need to do is follow this link and select one of the 16 competitors. Personally, I'm sticking with Purple because he won me 3 packs at the Summer Championship and appears to be the favorite to win his group. Kolento and Surrender are two of the favorites to win the tournament, which would make them safe bets to win you some packs as well.

      After a couple of repeats, this is 2018's first new Tavern Brawl.
      This is a constructed Brawl, with the novelty that you can build a deck of any size. The rest of the cards will be Shadow Reflections, which is normally generated by the passive Hero Power of the Rogue Death Knight Valeera the Hollow. It should be noted that when you play second, you don't get the coin; you draw an extra card instead.
      Obviously, you don't want to make a deck of 30 cards, since you will have no Shadow Reflections (although people have had success even like this). However, you also don't want to make a deck of only 1-3 cards, given that the Reflections take actual spots in the deck and it will be hard drawing the cards you picked.
      By doing a quick research, it seems that Aggro Paladin and Aggro Druid are good picks. As is usually the case when some good decks surface, their counters are also created: in this case, it's Mage with Ice Lance and Combo Priest. Moreover, Quest Rogue has managed to make a surprise re-appearance from the dead in this Brawl. Lastly, a hilarious deck is the Hunter one with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper.
      Good luck!
