In most cases I should just go face?

I know it is called face but lets say they have a 4/2 I have a 2/1 should I go face or trade?

You should take very favourable trades, especially in the early game and when your opponent would have a much better trade, e.g. a 2/1 that would kill Leeroy Jenkins should be killed unless you would have to overcommit.
There are a few exceptions, such as having lethal next turn (don't forget to take in count your opponent's trades) or being behind on the board in the late game.

As a general rule you should trade at the beginning against other aggressive decks, even out of scenarios such as the one mentioned(2/1 vs 4/2), unless you have better ways to clear minions, such as bow or quick shot.

Basically you should play with the mentality that you should be maximizing the amount of damage you do over the course of the game, as opposed to playing for either value or tempo. This could mean trading heavily in some match ups(aggro shaman, tempo mage,...), in order to establish board dominance and get squeeze more damage out of your minions,as well as survive an extra turn yourself and hence squeeze in an extra hero power and throw more burn at the face or simply go all in when your opponent's deck isn't built to fight for the board in the early game(control warrior, malygos druid and others). Most of the time in these match ups it's better to not even bother playing around your opponent's aoe options unless you feel you can afford to do so, which will rarely happen.

Not really. it's surprisingly tricky to pull wins with this deck. The lack of The Guy Who Lets The Dogs Out,  Savannah Finemane and Call of the Balanced plays against you as much as it plays for you.

That has always been the case when comparing the deck with a more midrangey build. You sacrifice late game staying power for sheer aggressive damage. Hence why midrange hunter is a good deck against things like control priest or warrior and face hunter is the better deck against decks like midrange hunter and zoo. But to me the fact the deck is even viable again is good enough, as I seem to be one of the few people who enjoy playing it.

Not saying this is a phenomenal tier 1 deck, but the fact that this deck reached top 10 Legend on 2 different servers couldn't have been a total fluke.

Nah, I enjoy the challenge as well. It's more that I expected something rather straightforward and ended up with a probability-heavy brain teaser. Zoolock this ain't.

Not a fluke, no, but an answer specifically crafted by great players to answer their particular meta at a particular moment. Outside of said conditions, it is much less efficient.

      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      In episode two of "What's the Move?" Aleco discusses an open-ended situation which doesn't have a clear answer.
      We kicked off this new series by analyzing a tricky situation which had only one optimal line of play. In episode two we'll take a look at a very different kind of situation, one where there might not be a perfect move at all.
      Please let us know in the comments what you would have done in this situation! One of the primary goals of this series is to foster improvement at Hearthstone by generating discussions. We would also love to hear your feedback on the video itself, as the series is still very new and has plenty room to improve on its format.

      In the latest Hearthstone update, Blizzard made adjustments to several cards. The patch is now live now on desktop and it should become available on mobile devices in the coming hours.
      Philosophy and reasons behind these changes can be found here.

      Card Changes
      Innervate now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2)
      Fiery War Axe now costs 3 mana.  (Up from 2)
      Hex now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3)
      Murloc Warleader now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health)

      A new Brawl has landed in the Tavern.
      Just like with the previous expansions, it's time to try out the deck recipes of Knights of the Frozen Throne in this week's Tavern Brawl. The archetypes for each deck recipe are the following:
      Druid: I guess the best name for this deck is Midrange Druid. It has Ultimate Infestation and Spreading Plague, so... PROFIT?! Deathrattle Hunter Elemental Mage Divine Shield Paladin Control Priest (you've probably seen variations of it in ladder) Jade Deathrattle Rogue Freeze Shaman Zoolock Control Warrior with Enrage minions This is a good opportunity to try out cards that you don't own. Good luck and have fun!

      The balance patch is arriving in the beginning of the next week.
      The wait is over! The anticipated card balance changes will arrive on September 18th and hopefully freshen up the meta a little bit. As the case always is with balance patches, for the next two weeks if you disenchant Spreading Plague and/or Murloc Warleader, you will get their full value in Arcane Dust.

      In the recent Upcoming Balance Changes – Update 9.1 blog, we discussed the details and philosophy behind balance updates that are coming to several Hearthstone cards:
       
      Innervate - Now reads: Gain 1 Mana Crystal this turn only. (Down from 2) Fiery War Axe - Now costs 3 mana. (Up from 2) Hex - Now costs 4 mana. (Up from 3) Murloc Warleader - Now reads: Your other Murlocs have +2 Attack. (Down from +2 Attack, +1 Health) Spreading Plague - Now costs 6 mana. (Up from 5)
      This patch is currently targeted for September 18th PDT. Please note that updates for mobile devices may take a few additional hours to propagate.

      Once these card changes are live, players will be able to disenchant cards that are not Basic (Murloc Warleader and Spreading Plague) for their full Arcane Dust value for two weeks. Basic cards cannot be disenchanted and will not be available for an Arcane Dust refund. (source)
