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.

      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!

      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!

      There's a new update arriving in the coming weeks and it's going to bring a much requested feature to HS: completing quests while playing with your friends! The other big feature coming with this update is importing decklists, allowing you to easily copy and share your favorite decks without resorting to screenshots or outside sites! No specific ETA has been given and if you want to know all the details check out the announcement post below.
      Blizzard (source)
      Hearthstone’s upcoming update has a lot of cool stuff in it, but we wanted to call special attention to a couple of features that we’re particularly excited about. We think you’ll like them too!

      Friends Forever
      When the new Hearthstone update arrives, you’ll be able to complete quests in Friendly Challenges! Just issue a Friendly Challenge to someone on your Friends list and rack up credit for nearly any quest you can receive.
      Last year, the Friendly Feud allowed players to complete quests when they played with a friend. You gave us a ton of positive feedback about that event, and a lot of you asked us to have Friendly Feuds more often. We thought that was a good idea, so we took it a step further!
      There are some minor caveats. For example, any quests that can’t be completed as part of a Friendly Challenge aren’t eligible, such as those that require you to play vs The Innkeeper or watch a match. Most everything else is fair game though, so now you’ll have a reason to make friends with a recent opponent that isn’t just to send them a compliment.
      Sharing is Caring
      You’ll soon be able to easily copy and share decklists with Deck Importing! No more screen shotting decklists, or staring at a web page as you carefully build a deck, card by card. Trying—and sharing—a new decklist will be as simple as copy and paste!

      Here’s how it works:
      If your deck is already full, when you select the Hero portrait at the top of a deck in your collection, you’ll see a Copy button*. Press that button and your decklist will be copied to your clipboard. If you paste your decklist into a text document, it will look like this:
      Click to view sample decklist. See that conveniently highlighted ‘code’ near the bottom? That code also works on its own, making it easier to share a decklist with friends in chat or social media.
      Importing a decklist is easy. When you go to create the new deck, Hearthstone will “know” when you’ve got a valid decklist on your clipboard, so you’ll be asked if you’d like to create a new deck with the one you’ve got copied. Then you can watch your new deck be built before your eyes. You can also import decklists to Tavern Brawls!
      Don’t have all the cards a deck requires? No worries! In that case, it works just like a deck recipe. Any cards you don’t already own will appear insubstantial and you can select them for suggested replacements. You might also notice that your golden and non-golden cards now stack in decklists too!

      Deck Importing is great for finding and sharing new decks, but it’s also helpful for managing your library of decks. Save the code for decklists you rarely use, and when you’re ready to play one again, just copy and import it.
      The new update including these features will arrive in the coming weeks. We’re super excited about them, and we can’t wait to hear what you think! 
      * Desktop users can use ctrl+c to copy a decklist (you’ll get a confirmation when your copy is successful), then ctrl+v when viewing My Decks to import a decklist.
