At the time of publication, your worst enemy with this deck is Jade Druid. Dragon Priest is tough, and Reno Mage is probably unfavoured. I think it is in a good spot against every other meta deck.

This comment not included in the guide because metas change fast.

terrible deck...shamans will wreck this deck with all their aoe and you can't possibly trade with their op golems.  In this meta?  No thanks.

L0rinda had 40% winrate on stream against shamans with this deck. It certainly can't be that bad to be called a "terrible deck" because "shamans will wreck this deck". Maybe upload  a few replays so we can see where the issue is.

I went from rank 11 to rank 7 with this deck (two swaps) and shamans were very manageable.

Yeah, I've been playing it a bit (with Sylvannas replacing my missing Cairne), it handles Aggro Shaman very well. And Pirate Warrior. Midrange/Control Jade Shaman is pretty bad though so it might struggle post-nerfs. Jade Druid seems ok to me, it tends to start much slower and have less answers. Rogue seems good. Reno Mage is horrible. Renolock seems pretty bad too. Priest seems tough but not a lost cause. Got trashed by anyfin Paladin twice but dunno if that's representative.

Its pretty fun to play, particularly when you get to throw down the surprise Reno or Kazakus to completely change the game. I guess it'd work even better from that point of view if zoo was in the meta at all. Right now, I feel the higher rank you get the more likely opponents will smell a rat rather than assume you're zoo.

Yep. Shadowbolt, flamejuggler, lance carrier, harvest golem and some other cards are too atypical for modern versions of zoo and experienced players will suspcet reno as soon as they see them.

Dragon Priest is a good counter, as is Reno Mage.

Play dragon priest and take the board with your superior minions

As renolock... I'd say you need  to not rush with your AOEs and try to be gready with them. Don't use that hellfire to kill two minions one of which will leave a deathrattle token behind.

Un'goro version seems  to have one mistake 

05 Apr. 2017: Updated for Journey to Un'Goro. -1 Reno Jackson, -1 Brann Bronzebeard, -1 Flame Juggler, -1 Lance Carrier, -1 Dark Peddler -1 Imp Gang Boss, -1 Power Overwhelming. +1 Ravenous Pterrodax, +1 Lakkari Felhound, +1 Darkshire

It is not exactly that. There are no Lakkari Felhound in the actual list, instead there are  Rockpool Hunter and it doesn't make any sense. 

As for the deck itself I am tempted to try, but without Brann Bronzebeard's value it doesn't look promising at all. BTW, I feel that wild version of the deck can be very strong with all zoo cards that were used in different metas you don't have to sacrifice much for having Kazakus

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
