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.

Haha whoops. Yeah obviously the "a second" part of that sentence is just not supposed to be there.

Hi there,

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

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.

May want to replace doomguards with arcane golems if you aren't running voidcallers.

      The next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. 
      Blizzard have released a short video revealing that, as speculated, the next expansion will be Journey to Un'goro. Four cards from the next set were shown in the reveal video.
      The expansion will be released in early April, and will contain 135 cards. It is set in Un'Goro, an area filled with dinosaurs, with a volcano at the heart of the region. The launch of the set will trigger the start of The Year of the Mammoth.

      Volcano, adding to the flavour of the set, was the first card to be revealed. It is similar to Elemental Destruction, but not as reliable. While on the subject of Elementals, the word Elemental is going to be used as a tribal name. Many cards will be tagged as Elemental, which presumably will allow for cards that interact with them to be printed, along the same lines as Beast has currently.

      The image above only tells half of the story. After Pyros dies as a 6/6, it returns back to hand yet again as a 10/10 that costs 10! This mechanic might imply that there is a focus on value as opposed to tempo, although of course one card is a meaningless sample size! There could also be a Quest to play a certain number of Elemental cards in a game, although it seems unlikely that it would be a Mage Quest.

      Adapt is a new keyword, along the lines of discover. There are ten different powers to choose from. Taunt, Windfury, Divine Shield, Cannot be targeted, +3 Attack, Deathrattle: Summon two 1/1 Plants are the six shown in the video. We've also been warned that plants are not just plants, so we can only speculate on what a 1/1 Plant might do.

      One of the more interesting features of the new expansion is the Quest mechanic. Quests start in your opening hand and have a big reward for completion. It is displayed in the same place as Secrets, however both players can see the Quest, and how close it is to being completed.

      As you can see, the rewards are very powerful
      More reveals will be made on March 17th. Until then, we will just have to speculate as to what else lies in Un'Goro.

      Iksar has confirmed that the Matchmaking in Legend Ranks has been changed.
      As stated in our previous article, Legendary players have been noticing that in the last few days that they have been matched with players much closer to their own rank than usual. There was some confusion regarding this, as Iksar had not been made aware of the changes, but he has now confirmed that there are definitely changes in place.
      It is hard to precisely evaluate community feeling on the the new system, especially as I personally think they're a step in the right direction, but there are some players who are not keen on the changes. RayC and Xzirez have been the two highest profile players so far to disagree with the change. The issues that people against it have can be summarised as follows: Counter-Queuing: Many top Legends do not like counter-queuing, which is where you change your deck to try to counter your opponent. With the new system meaning you can often play the same person several times in a row, counter-queuing will become an important part of the game.
      Early Legend Advantage: People opposed to the changes claim that it overly favours the players who reach Legend early on. The older system made it easier to catch up at the end of the season.
      Win Trading: Due to the increased chance of playing against the same opponent, it is now easier to cover your tracks if you lose to a friend many times in a row to boost their ranking.
      There does seem to be a majority of players who support the new system however. The ladder system has been a cause of much debate for a long time now, and these changes, alongside the recent addition of ladder floors, seem to show that at the very least, ladder is currently a high priority for Blizzard to get right.
