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. :)

      Two more cards from Knights of the Frozen expansion were revealed and Blizzard communicated why there was just a single card reveal before that. The cards are Ice Breaker and Plague Scientist.
      Three card reveals were scheduled for today and the reveal for the second and third card was delayed and the reason is that those reveals were all with partners that couldn't make it happen today due to various reasons.
      Blizzard (Source)
      We originally had a few more card reveals for today, but the card reveals were all with partners and they unfortunately couldn't happen today due to a variety of issues. But good news! There will be two more card reveals tonight, so please look forward to them. There will also be more card reveals happening every day this week! The first card that was revealed is the Ticking Abomination and here are the next two:
      Shaman's Ice Breaker
      Ice Breaker will synergize well with Frost Shock and we'll have to see Freeze effects of other cards first to determine its usefulness and full potential. Ice Breaker will be good for minion removal combined with Glacial Shard. For now, the card looks better than Shatter.

      Rogue's Plague Scientist
      Provides Rogues with much needed board clear (hard removal). Synergizes well with Tentacle of N'Zoth, Wild Pyromancer. On the other hand for Constructed, it competes with Vilespine Slayer and SI:7 Agent that both seem to be better choices.

      The first card since the initial annoucement for Knights of the Frozen Throne has been revealed by C4mlann earlier this morning.
      Let's take a look at the first KotFT card officially revealed by C4mlann.

       
      Blizzard kicks off the reveal with a card that seems unplayable in all currently popular decks, and subpar in arena. Although some players have suggested silence priest as a potential target, Ticking Abomination is actually detrimental to play without a form of silence in hand, unlike other popular silence targets. The caveat here is that since this is one the first card revealed, we don't actually know what's in store. Might there be a way to transfer Deathrattle effects to enemy minions? Will KotFT control decks play no minion before turn 5? One potential use for this one might lie in "forcing" your opponent to trigger your own Deathrattle effects with a high value card, but we'll have to wait and see. We might even see something that gives Deathrattle effects Lifesteal, the expansion's new mechanic, for some minion-based healing.
      For more information, please check out our guide to the new Hearthstone expansion.

      Who are we?
      Volatile are a group of mostly ex-mythic raiders, looking to get back into mythic raiding and for us to be able to do that we need some more people to fill the gaps. Besides raiding our friendly bunch of members enjoy running mythic+ on daily basis, helping out with world quests among other things. Our discord is usually filled with members for daily banter and weekly fun. If you enjoy all that, you most certainly will enjoy your stay in Volatile.
      Who are we looking for?
      We're primarily looking for ranged DPS to fill out the roster. But we are also interested in any dps class with a good healing offspec. Even though your class isn't listed below, don't be afraid of getting in contact with us.
      Tanks - Closed
      Healers - Closed
      Ranged DPS - Open
      Melee DPS - Closed
      Overall we're looking for people with a good knowledge of their class/spec who know how to improve their gameplay. Being fairly thick skinned and being able to accept constructive criticism, as well as the occasional jab from some of our more 'outspoken' members, is a big plus too.
      When do we raid?
      We raid two times a week as standard, we often have an additional raid day if necessary. See raid times below. 
      Thursday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Monday: 8pm - 11pm (Server time)
      Tuesday: 8pm - 11pm (Additional day)
      Application process:
      We believe the best way to get to know if someone is right for the guild is just to have a chat, rather than go through a long application process. So we'll have a chat, look at logs and possibly run some M+ to get to know each other. If you're interested in joining our mythic raid team, contact any of the following:
      Contact us:

      Passive#2900, Malenky (ingame)
