Just look towards the full budget deck to see what improvements you can make.

Those two cards you mentioned are two of the very best cards in the deck, but Wrathguard and Shattered Sun Cleric are both reasonable replacements.

Is there a Discard Zoo in the works? I feel like discard zoo is just as viable in standard, if not more so, than wild.

I would like to try this deck but am short of the following cards:

 

Forbidden Ritual x 2

Possessed Villager x 2

Darkshire Councilman x 1

Doomguard x 1

Dire Wolf Alpha x 1

Ironbeak Owl x 1

Defender of Argus x 2 (although I have Sunfury Protector x 1).

 

What would be suitable alternatives for the above?

You miss one third of a deck, and most of those cards are hard to replace. I recommend you not to play the deck.

You could try some high-ish quality legendaries that won't screw up your curve, such as Hogger or Gormok. Then, Argent Horseriders, Flame Jugglers, one Spellbreaker, second Argent Squire, maybe Brann, Tiny Knight of Evil. Still, not worth playing the deck.

You lose the point of a budget deck when you're required to purchase the adventures. The cost of the deck listed is rather deceptive for this reason.

About what levels (about) are reachable with this deck?   20, 15, 10 or 5?

I can't go past rank 16 with this deck...it's effective against aggro hunter but the win rate is 30% against the other classes.

Then you are not playing the deck correctly.

Zoo is not in a good spot in the current meta, but with this deck you should be able to reach at least rank 5.

Try watching some pros playing zoo, in order to understand how to play the deck. It surely is not as easy to play as most people think, since it requires knowledge of the decks you are facing in order to play around AoE clears etc.

      The Americas Spring Playoffs and Championship were played over the weekend of May 28-29.
      The new Americas Champion is Muzzy.  Muzzy has long been touted as one of the best ladder players in the world, but has previously not converted this into any big wins. He will go to the World Spring Championship in Shanghai in July, alongside DiegoDias, Ant, and Kuonet who rounded out the top four.
      The tournament was a grueling one, with many players bringing Control Decks, and some of the rounds of Swiss lasting over 3 hours. The archetypes brought by the top four are listed below:
        Muzzy: Control Paladin, Giant Miracle Rogue, Jade Shaman, Quest Warrior
        DiegoDias: Jade Druid, Murloc Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
        Ant: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
        Kuonet: Discover Mage, Control Paladin, Evolve Shaman, Quest Warrior
      As you can see, the meta seems to be healthy, with many viable options.
      Next week is the APAC Spring Playoffs, at which point all sixteen qualifiers for the World Spring Championship will have been decided.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.
