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.

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!
