I have the similar deck to this one, im running with dark iron dwarf instead of gormok and harvest golems in place of imp gang boss. anyway, this deck is doing pretty good, only handlock and renolock is 100 percent lose for me. any advice vs that matchup?

In the card swaps section it states that a second Dr. Boom can be included. Is that correct?

Yes, the value is too high to be overlooked. Just imagine it: turn 6 Coin into Boom, turn 7 Boom, turn 8 easy victory. No? Ok, the "second" shouldn't be there. One should be enough.

I'm running it with Piloted shredder instead of Gormok (which I don't have) and it's doing great. I'm not even sure Gormok would be better honestly, but I can't try so..

One thing about this deck is that it gives you so many options during the game that it's hard to blame it when you loose since it gave you so many choices and possibilities :)

The playstyle seems to me much more flexible and powerful than that of Sea Giants or Voidcaller versions.

I know it will make the deck a bit weaker but if I run Dark Iron Dwarf instead of Gormok the Impaler and replace Void Terror and maybe one Imp-losion(I don't know if I'll be able to craft 2 and I don't want to craft even just one if it's not worth) with a card between these 3: Silver Hand Regent, Imp Master or Harvest Golem, do you guys think it will be better than my 2 other Zoo decks?

DID instead of Gormok is fine, many people actually prefer it. I ran it that way myself in a 30k tournament recently.

Harvest Golem, Silent Knight and Argent Horserider are the best choices to replace cards around that Mana slot you're looking at. Double Implosion is really important though for a lot of matchups.

Yes I know... I just don't have the dust for it... I settled to give a go at that neat Fast Discard Zoo since it works wonders with just one

Did you mean to say something else instead of putting in "a second Dr. Boom"? Dr. Boom's a legendary minion.
Btw, thank you for putting all these deck lists up.

Hi there,

Is there any card good enough to replace Doomguard? I don't have any and I'm low on dust.

Dark Iron Dwarves.

hi there,

 

do you think a reliquary seeker fit in this deck? i usually chose it from peddler and it has good synergy with implosion, so i thought why not include it in the first place. if yes, what to replace it for?

 

thanks for the great work btw.

It isn't reliable enough to be included and therefore is a winmore card. However, you can use her in Flood Zoo.

I have created my own rendition of this deck but I have not been able to play with it much. I am trying to make this deck viable for the upcoming "Standard" game mode. Any current cards that absolutely need to be in the deck that are not in GvG or NAXX? Thanks guys!

I recently created a deck, kinda like this one. The only catch for me is that I am trying to do so without GvG or Naxx. Any suggestions for a Zoo deck without either GvG or Naxx?

Zoo without Naxx is really bad and not worth trying. If you want to try it anyway, use 2x DID, 2x Shredder, a late-game threat and 2x Argent Squire. Dragon decks will be in my opinion a stronger force in Standard.

RIP zoo from standard sad.pngsad.pngsad.pngsad.png

My buddy Namenemas and I think that there will be new cards released for Zoo in the future expansion, so we don't really see it that pessimistically.

I don't think Zoo will die. It will surely slow down and the general power level will be going down. Then again this is the case for everything else, so I don't see a problem there. We don't know anything about the upcoming expansion so I prefer to not take it into account. Don't forget they want to balance Basic and Classic cards, so the game WILL be changing a lot, we'll see when we get there!

I play this deck with Mukla's Champion as a replacement for the impaler at it synergizes very well with imp implosion and the imp boss.

Zoo will always persist, it's survived and been a high tier deck throughout every expansion, the core strategy is just too strong.

      Will these three new Treant cards see play in the meta? Or will they come up short like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood?
       
      Three new Treant-themed cards were revealed today by PCGamer:
       

       
      First up we have Dendrologist. The floor on this card is solid, as a 2 Mana 2/3 is passable in a pinch. The ceiling on Dendrologist is higher than you might think, as his Battlecry is quite strong. Druid might have more high-quality spells than any other class in the game (Wild Growth, Nourish, Ultimate Infestation, Branching Paths, Naturalize, and Savage Roar to name a few), which leads me to believe that Dendrologist will be a powerhouse if Druid gets sufficient Treant support in this expansion.
       

       
      3 Mana for 4/4 worth of stats is already a great deal on its own, and the added Treant synergy puts this card over the top. The fact that this card creates two bodies makes it even better in aggro decks that look to go wide and finish with cards like Fungalmancer. This is a very reasonable card to curve into on turn 3, and it hints that the Treant deck will likely be quite aggressive.
       

       
      Finally we get Mulchmuncher, a big fat Mech with Rush and a dangerously tempting Mana reduction effect. We know from experience with Corridor Creeper and Giant cards how strong it can be to play big Minions for low amounts of Mana, but it won't be that easy to reduce Mulchmuncher's cost. If the Mana Treants from Living Mana count as Treants for this card, then I can easily see Mulchmuncher as finisher in an aggressive Treant decks.
      Will these new Treant cards turn Force of Nature and Witchwood Apple into playable cards? Or do you think the Treant cards will fall flat like the hand-size cards from The Witchwood? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      The latest Hearthside Chat with Peter Whalen revealed Supercollider, Flobbidinous Floop, and Whizbang the Wonderful from The Boomsday Project.
       
      In the latest Hearthside Chat, Senior Game Designer Peter Whalen explained some of the themes (science) and inspirations (more science) for The Boomsday Project. In doing so, he spoiled three new incredibly exciting cards. If you're interested in watching the video (which is just 4:59 seconds long), you can do so right here:
       
       
      Card Reveals
       

       
      This card gets an "A" for flavor, as I don't think its possible to come up with a better design for a card called "Supercollider" in a science-themed set.
      This Warrior weapon has the potential to be a 2 or 3 for 1, as it can set up trades quite easily if you attack your opponent's largest minion with it. However, attacking your opponent's largest minion means you will also be dealing plenty of face damage to yourself, making high amounts of armor gain a requirement for putting this card in your deck. For that reason, Supercollider plays excellently with Baku the Mooneater, and I expect it to see play in Odd Warrior decks.
       

       
      Next up is another card with an excellent name, Flobbidinous Floop. This guy provides a Faceless Manipulator-style effect for Druid decks for just 4 Mana, which will almost certainly make him a combo piece in a variety of Druid decks. Between Innervate, Twig of the World Tree, and Biology Project, there will almost certainly a few new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop. He can also be used in Big Druid decks one turn after playing a huge minion, such as Ysera, Hadronox, or The Lich King, to become a 3/4 copy of a card with a powerful effect. Expect to see plenty of Flobbidinious Floop in the new meta!
       

       
      Next we get Whizbang the Wonderful, which is one of the most unique and exciting cards in the history of Hearthstone. What does he do? Let me show you:
       

       
      Whizbang the Wonderful replaces your entire deck. He replaces your hero, and he names your new deck "Whizbang is Wonderful". When you enter a game with this deck, you will be randomly handed 1 of 18 recent deck recipes by Blizzard at the start of the game.
      Will Whizbang be competitively viable? Almost certainly not, but I think that question is almost entirely missing the point. By adding Whizbang to the game, Blizzard has offered new players a way to access 18 different for just 1600 dust! Though its unlikely these 18 premade decks will be 100% meta optimal, they will almost certainly be viable enough for newer players to climb the earlier ranks while playing a wide variety of decks and learning new cards. This is the closest thing that Blizzard will probably ever do to selling pre-constructed decks (something that many other cards games do), which in my eyes is a major step forward. Will tryhards be disappointed when they open Whizbang? Probably. But not every Legendary minion needs to be a home run for the hardcore audience. Whizbang is the new player's best friend, and will surely add much more joy to the game of Hearthstone than he takes away.
      What do you think about today's spoilers? Will Supercollider see play? Can you find any new OTKs with Flobbidinous Floop? And are you as excited about Whizbang the Wonderful as I am? Let us know in the comments what you think about these new cards, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this new Mech card could be a serious player in the meta.
       
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" has revealed another new Magnetic card from The Boomsday Project, called Annoy-o-Module:
       

       
      A callback to Annoy-o-Tron, this guy gains Magnetic and 1/2 worth of stats for just 2 Mana! The stats and keywords this card instantly adds to another Mech seem quite strong when you compare it to Blessing of Kings, which adds 2 more Attack to a minion but does not add Divine Shield and Taunt. This card isn't awful when played on it's own, and it plays well in a deck with Corpsetaker. Annoy-o-Module checks enough for boxes for me, and I full expect it to see play in the upcoming meta.
      Episode 2 of "Enter Boom Labs" is short but sweet, and you can watch the full video right here:
       
       
      Do you think Annoy-o-Module impact the game as much as Annoy-o-Tron did? Let us know in the comment section, and be sure to check out our Boomsday Hub for more spoilers from the upcoming expansion.

      Use Mini-Rag to destroy enemy minions and level up your"Wow!" emote in this week's Tavern Brawl.
       
      In celebration of The Midsummer Fire Festival, this week's Tavern Brawl is all about Ragnaros, Lightlord. Well, Mini-Rag to be more specific:
       

       
      A 2/3 Ragnaros with Immune will start the game on one side of the board. At the end of each turn, Mini-Rag will deal 1 damage to a random target on the other side of the board for each Attack he has, then swap to the other side of the board. Each time he kills an enemy minion he will gain 1 Attack, growing in power as the game progresses.
       

       
      Due to the sudden pressure that Mini-Rag applies to both players, I highly recommend playing an Aggro deck. I used Odd Rogue in my first game to take down an Odd Hunter. You could also play an anti-aggro deck to try and counter all the aggro decks running around, but be sure to play some self-healing such as Branching Paths or Healing Rain.
       

       
      The Tavern Brawl will track how many minion kills that Mini-Rag racks up. After 8, 30, and 60 Minion kills, you will level up the fireworks in your "Wow!" emote. This is a returning Tavern Brawl from last year's festival, and your running total of Mini-Rag kills from last year's festival carries over to this year. Happy hunting!
