If Dark peddler is not a possibility, but i still want to use the deck. Is there a minion or spell that can fill in for the peddlers?

Removing Dark Peddler severely impacts the deck :( Did you go through your card collection to disenchant some that you'll never need? I can't really think of any minion that you could replace it with.

dark peddler as mentioned by sottle is the most flexible card in zoo decks and you can play it on curve or coin it and still get class specific cards that you will use later in the turns ahead so i dont think there is any reasonable sub for this card 

for crafting cards from adventures ,,as far as i know your able to a specific card only if you unlocked it from its dedicated wing so i dont think you have the ability to craft it for now ..just farm the adventure or just buy it 

what i do usually is farm the first 2 wings for 1400 gold takes about 3 weeks max then buy the rest of the adventure for really cheap so goodluck and hopefully yoo get your hands on the cards you need soon !!

Dark Peddler is absolutely crucial in this build of Zoo. It's not simply value and flexibility, but an invaluable strategical piece of your game puzzle : with whooping 2 maindechk Soulfire you can easily end up discarding your damage cards : aforementioned 4-damage spell and Power Overwhelming, or just simply don't draw it reliably. Given  this build's emphasis on capitalizing on these cards, I think you should switch to entierly different, more minion-heavy composition of Zoo if you don't have access do Dark Peddler.

The problem is that i am very against spending my money on the game, and i simply dont have the coins to buy the first win of League of Explorers to get the peddler. If i had the coins or the patience to save up to get them i would buy it, but i dont. That is why i asked if something would work instead of peddler.

It doesn't take long to farm the gold needed. You can easily get 100+ Gold every day, so in 1 week, you can unlock the first wing :)

With the average of ~56 gold per day from quest, you would have to win about 15 times to get those 100g, which isn't possible for some players, including myself. Anyway, to get the most gold per day, reroll all 40g and 50g quests, and play as many games with aggro decks as possible. This way you will be able to earn enough gold in about 12 days without spending too much time on the game.

It really doesn't take long to save for coins, it just seems a task at first glance.

If you play regularly you can earn 100 coins from 30 wins + your daily (40-60), so its possible to have it within just a few days.

I highly recommend saving your coins for wings regardless as you get essential legionaries to other decks plus cards you can dust if desperate.

More on topic, the amount of times Dark Peddler has given me an overwhelming advantage makes this card to me the MVP.

Mulliganing against specific classes:

I'm running a deck similar to this one and I have a few questions on mulliganing, mainly:

  1. Vs mirror: Against aggressive deck (mirror) I would keep Imp Gang Boss if I'm on the coin. Any thoughts on this?
  2. Vs Shaman: If I have a void walker, a knife and an abusive, should I mulligan the knife only or both knife and abusive? I'm thinking of trogg / wolf spirits.
  3. Are there any situations where you'd keep the Darkshire or I.G.B. (maybe control warrior on coin)?
  4. Mid Range Hunter: I'm losing *a lot* vs this deck (33% winrate over 18 matches). Any tips? I usually do the standard mulligan (1's void + flame + posessed)

Replace for the Imp Gang Boss?

Harvest Golem. I guess we should make a FAQ to include card swaps, as I can recall that being said like 10000 times already. 

Argent Horserider is also good, but they are not exactly the same card. I'd stick to former while farming BrM.

It was said only twice, and that was in regular Zoo for standard and regular Zoo for wild, which I feel like that is "rare" enough. As for the swaps FAQ, could you tell us more about the idea? Like, adding a swap for each card would be way too time consuming, so we need a different solution.

There already is a section for card swaps in the main article (see the bottom part).  Any other suggestions for card swaps that do not make it into the official guide will come in this forum thread.

      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.

      A new mini-series of funny shorts has started, and we already have 2 episodes out! Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan. See them battle printer problems and who gets to ride shotgun in the first two episodes:

      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.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
