At time of build, I feel this deck is very strong in the meta. The nerfs to Shaman have helped a lot. The deck is pretty weak to Priest though, even by Zoo standards. If you run into a LOT of Priest, you should go with the variation at the bottom of the guide.

Could you please suggest subs for Imp Gang Boss and Dark Peddler?  I don't want to invest in them if they're going wild in the next few weeks.  Thanks!

They are both incredibly strong cards. Since Imp Gang Boss is a 3-drop sticky demon, it curves perfectly into Crystalweaver, which means its value is even higher than in regular zoo builds. I would suggest playing regular zoo and replace the missing cards with Harvest Golems, Voidwalker and a Flame Juggler.

You should be able to reach rank 10 somewhat easily, and if you try hard enough, rank 5 is reachable as well. Not sure if legend is reachable, as I haven't seen the deck reach it yet, but I of course wouldn't rule it out either.

I tested the deck before posting around the start of the month and went from rank 16 to rank 4 in two days. There was a lot less Priest about at the time, but the deck is definitely a Legend standard one.

I don't know how some people made it to rank 6 or such, I cant get passed by any shaman, they just destroy the deck. And it's a non-stop shaman frenzy out there......

Shamans are a tough matchup indeed, but it is still winnable. Could you upload a few replays so we can see where the issue lies?
If you face way too many shamans, I recommend switching to another deck.

I have been playing this deck a lot this month, and am at almost exactly 50% from ranks 10 through 3 over more than 230 games.

I was about 40% vs shamans and warriors, which was almost exactly offset by dominating druids and rogues at about 60%. Also did well against mages and warlocks, got destroyed by paladins and hunters the few times I faced them, and broke even against priests.

Thanks for the feedback, always interested to see how big samples do.

I would treat my results as a floor rather than a ceiling; I'm sure there were a lot of misplays in there. Thanks for the deck.

This deck is no longer standard, it still has Dark Peddler listed in it.

Thanks. I will get to it as soon as I can. For reference for now, if the dates of last update are before April 6 2017, the deck will be out of date for now. Please accept my apology, it's been a bit busy with all the new stuff.

No problem! The work you all do on this website is incredible. I'm always shocked how fast things update. You all had a few Un'Goro decks listed before it even had released. Love you all! Just trying to help out.

I think this one is a candidate to being converted into a wild deck. I doubt that there are enough demons for Crystalweaver centred deck in standard. On other hand there are some wild cards that can buff the deck

This deck is no longer valid as a standard deck. Dark Peddler is a wild-only card.  I didn't check the rest of the deck after I got to that card.  This needs an update.

We have been going through all the decks and changing the guides to a new format (which you can see in the quest rogue guide), which caused our authors to have less time for updating decks one by one, and left us with two outdated decks - this one, and token jade druid. While jade druid is a high priority and should be finished next week, it will take quite some time to update this deck because zoolock is a low priority. 
Sorry for the inconvenience :(

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      It’s the Headless Horseman’s favorite time of year, and he’s returning to the Hearthstone tavern from October 17 through October 31 to host another a blowout Hallow’s End celebration for everyone! If you dare to brave a tavern decked in delightfully dreary decorations, you’ll find that your horrific host has also planned some spine-tingling treats and chilling challenges!
       
      Tempting Treats
      The Headless Horseman is handing out ghoulish goodies just for logging in! Log in between October 17 and 10 p.m. PDT on October 31 to receive a free golden Witch’s Cauldron card and an Arena ticket.

       
      The Great Hallow’s End Arena Costume Party
      During Hallow’s End you can experience dual class Arena* with an added twist: Each of the nine classic Hearthstone Heroes will be attending in costume!

       
      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!
       
      TWO Tricky Tavern Brawls!
      Monster Smash is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from October 17 to Oct. 22.
       
      Wise monster hunters avoid the haunted wood during Hallow’s End, so the creepy creatures of the Witchwood are taking the opportunity to find out which among them is the strongest! Take control of a monster from The Witchwood’s Monster Hunt single-player mission and SMASH the competition!

       
      The Headless Horseman Rides Again is a special Hallow’s End Tavern Brawl that will run from Oct. 24 to 29.
       
      The Headless Horseman has been marauding through the countryside, and it’s up to you to stop him! You’ll go in disguise to catch the fiend by surprise—after the Brawl begins, you’ll get to Discover which costume you’ll wear. Each costume has its own deck featuring cards from several classes and a passive Hero Power that you’ll need to make the most of if you want to succeed at sinking the sinister specter!

       
      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.
       


       
      There’s a feast of fearsome fun to be had at the Headless Horseman’s Hallow’s End hootenanny. Don’t forget to check out a Hallow’s End Fireside Gatherings Tavern near you and get Nemsy Necrofizzle as the celebration continues!
       
      We hope you’ll join us, and we wish you a HAPPY HALLOW’S END!

       
      * NOTE: If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket. In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
