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 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!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party

      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.

      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
