I was rank 19 and ı used this deck and boom! i'm rank 10

Zoo is a really fun deck to play, it is one that will always have a special place in my heart. My preference is more towards Aggro Zoo though with Leeroy Jenkins as more of the finisher in place of Doomguard but this version works really well also.

This deck is awful. It has absolutely no tempo.

Then play discard lock instead .. Zoo isnt supposed to be tempo oriented .. Keep dropping small synergist minions much like aggro decks ..

This deck is absolutely awful. I was playing discard lock at rank 4 with 3 stars, decided to try out a deck with lower mana curve against dragon priests and retarded pirate warriors, and now I lost 10 games in a row. DO NOT USE THIS DECK

Could you please upload a few replays? I am fairly certain the deck is not that bad to lose you 10 games in a row - you are most likely at fault here.

Replacement for Malc's Imp?

 

I don't own Kara, and don't plan on buying it, since I am a F2P player and 700 gold could be better spent.

Dark Iron Dwarf or second Defender of Argus are great swaps.

Karazhan is a great value for F2P players, and I do recommend buying it.

I agree with Positiv2 on default swaps .  You can also consider using Eggnapper for more synergy with Darkshire Councilman\Knife Juggler. If you prefer to replace 1 drop with 1 drop Glacial Shard can be a fantastic tool for protecting important minions. Fire Fly isn't bad because it makes your curve smoother and works with Darkshire Councilman\Knife Juggler

I've been struggling with this deck. 

I saw as an update of the Crystalweaver deck, that I've reached rank 11. Then, I've changed to this Zoo deck and dropped to rank 13 :(

Since PO is gone, how about adding Demonfire or Bloodfury Potion even if it is more expensive?

They're too situational and do not grant huge tempo advantage like Power Overwhelming did. It's better to swap it for another card.

What does the 2xdarkshire librarian do for this deck and is there a suitable replacement or is it a must for crafting (to make this deck)?

You can replace it with Faerie Dragon with no ill effects. The only reason the Darkshire is better is that after you have emptied your hand, it draws you a card when it dies, without discarding one when you play it.

Hey, sub silverware golem for Argent Squire? Perhaps works better with librarian? Thoughts?

Silverware Golem is a solid swap, but in the current meta you might want to go for a bit more 1-drops, which means Argent Squire should stay in the deck. I would probably swap for Ravasaur Runt.

Recently played vs quest rogue and lost - here is replay https://hsreplay.net/replay/7qYmVtSbfUQy4KTYUSdB5V . This deck should be favoured vs this archetype so did I play badly or rng?

T4 - if you want to tap during the turn, tap first (unless you would discard that card). You should also care about placement a bit more. You also probably should have dumped all the 1-drops to give you good trade options while also allowing you to keep a board after you would trade. Not doing so left you with a very awkward turn 5, which I felt like was the issue you lost.

I'm not sure why you held onto the coin for so long.  If you had coined out Imp T1, you would have been able to hit face with it on T2, and you would have been in a better position to fight for the board, which would have let your Darkshire Councilman get in some face damage as well.  Since you were only 5 off from lethal before he killed you, these little things could've made a difference.  The Rogue quest generally needs to spend the first few turns doing very little to fight for the board, so that's your opportunity to develop your board and push face damage.

Of course, this is the budget deck.  A lot of people don't have Leeroy. :)

      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.

      Fight Promoter is promoting Hearthstone by giving itself away! Ok, that didn't make sense, but the point is everyone gets a fee card for just logging in this Saturday!
      Blizzard (source)
      Yeah, we can get you a card. Really! Log in to Hearthstone on Saturday, May 20, to get a Fight Promoter card for free!

      No catch, just a free card--so don’t miss out.
      We’ll see you in the tavern!
