Great deck. Has worked so far in about my first 15 matches. I believe I won atleast 70% of those. Plus its a fun way to play, especially when you are down about 20 health and get a nice little come back for the victory.

Interesting deck... I noticed no ironbeaks. How do you deal with taunts? What would you swap? I'm also surprised to see a deck with Wrathguard and Fists as a viable ladder deck. Do you think these cards are more valuable than what you substituted them for from a zoo deck prior to TGT?

I can't get higher than 10 rank with this deck. Is it my fault?

 

Zoos and other decks with low curve are hard to play optimally. After multiple games with this deck, your performance should improve and so should your winrate.

This is a very different deck from the pre-TGT Zoo deck that ran the Voidcaller package with the big minions like Malganis. This version is more akin to the early builds of Zoo in that it just tries to be as fast and efficient as possible and overwhelm the opponent on the board every turn. It's a different idea with different matchups.

If I was going to switch out Fist of Jaraxxus for Hellfire, would you advise changing the Wrathguards, too? There would seem to be some negative synergy, but perhaps the Wrathguards are just too good to get rid of.

What is the reason for not using minions like leper gnome or worgen infiltrator instead of argent squire? Since its a rush deck anyway it makes more sense to me to just go all out rush?

 

Im rank 10 newb so im not critisizing just wondering :-)

Argent Squire is better against Aggro mirrors, since it trades much more effectively, it's NOT a face deck, you need to get the board and then push damage all at once when you have control.

That might be a better idea, but I think you'd find yourself light on early pressure quite often. Worth giving it a go though, let me know it works out.

I don't have the flame jugglers, but I found that the haunted creepers increase knife juggler's power against aggro and are overall so great I don't know if the flame jugglers could be better. When I have them I'll try them out, they might make matchups against control better.

I ended up not using hellfire at all. The fast start of zoo is enough to deal with most enemy floods, and since I usually have several minions on the board it just wasn't working. Knife juggler plus haunted creeper/imp gang boss/nerubian egg/imp-losion and other small minions deals with most things hellfire would be useful for. Regarding your suggested switch for hellfire, I absolutely would not trade fist of jaraxxus for anything, since it's so useful when paired with soulfire or doomguard that it's just too good. If aggro were a problem and I were to switch hellfire for anything I think it would be imp-losion, since single target removal or trades are pretty consistent in this deck, you can't use it for burst to face, and they don't work too well together. Plus if I need to be better against aggro imp-losion isn't going to be very useful anyway, since it seems best versus control.

 

It turns out I love wrathguards so much that there's no way I would trade them for anything. It makes anti aoe decisions more interesting though xD

 

TL;DR: In summary, against an aggro meta I would use hellfire and haunted creepers, against control imp-losion and flame jugglers, and for more balance imp-losion and haunted creepers. Everything else seems to work really well.

 

Finally, I'm thrilled there's a new zoo deck similar to the original archetypes. When I started playing (around the naxx release) I used your zoo deck for great results, and I'm so happy it's back. The other more mid range versions weren't as fun for me.

 

Thank you for all your decks, I use them all the time!

How would u counter aggro paladin decks with this? Also wrathguard seems bad against hunter match ups

Shadowflame is too situational and is a really crappy topdeck, you want to tap into cards you can use every turn with this deck, not hold situational combo pieces.

You just have to outvalue them on the board, your trading should be a lot more efficient than theirs most of the time and they usually only play 1 Consecration for board clear. Match up is pretty decent.

 

Yes Wrathguard kinda sucks against Hunter, but so has Flame Imp since the beginning of time and that never stopped anyone from playing that.

      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.

      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)
