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

      A new series of posts in the official forums will shed some light into the inner workings of the Hearthstone team. Welcome to Tavern Talk!
      In this first installment, three questions are answered. The first has to do with additional rewards for players who have earned a Golden Hero with every class. Unfortunately, no extra rewards are planned since the team wants new features or rewards to be obtainable by 10% or more of the playerbase.
      Then, we have an update on the new player experience. Team 5 wants to add additional ranks above rank 25 for new players, so they can mostly face each other in their first steps in the ranked ladder. You will be able to only progress forward in these ranks, similarly to what already happens from rank 25 to 20.
      Lastly, we have a double question about using alternate card art and reprinting cards. The team doesn't like the idea of alternate card art, since it makes sense that players associate and remember a specific card from its art. Reprinting cards is something that has been discussed already and it's something they might do in the not-so-near future after careful consideration.

      Ever wondered what goes on behind the closed doors of the tavern? Ava and the crew’s antics aside, the Hearthstone development team works hard on a myriad of tasks to bring you the game you know and love so well. More than that, we also make the time to read about the different issues and questions the community brings to light each day. Welcome to Hearthstone Tavern Talk, where we’ll share with you answers to some of the questions we see in our community!
      Are there any additional rewards for players who have achieved a Golden Hero in every class?
      Usually when we add new features or rewards we like to make something that can be obtained by 10% or more of our players. Only very few of our players have the 9 Golden Heroes, and we feel that’s already pretty awesome by itself.
      Do you have any changes planned for the new player experience?
      We have some small ladder changes that we would like to do at some point, specifically targeted at new players when they first enter the game. The change will add some additional ranks above rank 25 that new players can play through before having to play more invested players. There will only be forward advancement through those ranks, so even if they lose, no one will be able to drop back down.
      What are your thoughts on alternate card art or reprints of cards from earlier sets?
      Alternate card art is something we have avoided because players almost always use art to recognize a card and instantly know what it does. Good gameplay is very important to us so we have avoided adding multiple pieces of art for a single card.
      Reprints are something that we have discussed in the past, but we would want to do so only after careful consideration. We don’t have any specific plans for this in the near future.
      See you at the next edition of Hearthstone Tavern Talk!

      This is the second time this Brawl appears.
      The trend of Tavern Brawls themed after Death Knight Hero Powers continue: last week we had Rise of the Zombeasts, now we have Shadow Reflection.
      In this constructed Brawl, you can craft a deck of any size with cards from your collection. The rest of the deck will consist of Shadow Reflections. Decks consisted of 30 cards (and thus with no Shadow Reflections) can still work, given that Odd Paladin has reportedly been successful (and a total fun breaker).
      Judging from the previous time this Brawl was around, Aggro and OTK decks seems to be more favoured. Some decks that had success were Aggro Mage or Ice Lance Mage, Combo Priest with Radiant Elemental, Hunter with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper and Quest Rogue. This time around a new Warrior deck, which mostly relies on Bring It On!, has surfaced to counter all the Priest Mind Blast madness.
      Good luck and have fun!
