 Can someone please explain why the deck list uses Soulfire instead of Darkbomb if the idea is to generate card advantage?

It isn't designed to get card advantage, quite the opposite, not sure what gave you that impression.

Oh, I thought the idea was to gain card advantage through favorable trades.

 

Ignoring that though, I still am interesting in why the deck list features Soulfire instead of Darkbomb. I've only played Zoo like 50 games or so and am hesitant about replacing it because, as mentioned, I'm not a seasoned deck builder.

The favourable trading is to build a board advantage, but a Zoo player will almost always be extremely low on cards. That's what makes Soulfire good, since you will spend most of the game with 1 or 2 cards in hand, you can usually play out your whole hand before casting it so that it ends up discarding nothing.

With the inclusion of Annoy-o-tron in the deck, I think Voidwalker has lost its potential. I swapped it with Voidcaller - the benefits of this are quite powerful, although I'm replacing a 1-mana minion with a 4-mana. In a perfect scenario at 4 mana these days most people now play a 4/5 minion or a piloted shredder - both beating your Voidcaller and summoning a free Doomguard for you, then at 5 you've got a 5/7 on the board and 5 mana to still spring other surprizes for your opponent. Not to mention that the Voidcaller still enhances your undertakers if you didn't get them early in some kind of misfit starting hand.

Undertaker is a vital part of this deck. Obviously, you can try to replace it with something, but it is very hard. Pulling out a good Undertaker start is 90% win against most deck without hard removal. I'd really suggest you investing in the appropriate wing of Naxx for it.

Was the strategy for this deck copied and pasted? It's all correct but it mentions argent squire when this deck doesn't actually run it..

Hello everyone,

 

Could someone please explain me this:

 

30 Jan. 2015: Changed 2 x Undertaker, 2 x Leper Gnome for 2 x Argent Squire, 2 x Shattered Sun Cleric.

 

How the new deck should look like ? It seems that it wasn't updated yet.

 

What do you think ?

May i replace the Enhance-o Mechano with Ragnaros the Firelord? It's better to have at least one late game card.

Hi Sottle. Thanks for the decks. I'm knew so I can't get past 15 with this deck. You mention Imp Boss in the strategy but it's not in the deck list. FYI thank you.

      The Americas Spring Playoffs and Championship were played over the weekend of May 28-29.
      The new Americas Champion is Muzzy.  Muzzy has long been touted as one of the best ladder players in the world, but has previously not converted this into any big wins. He will go to the World Spring Championship in Shanghai in July, alongside DiegoDias, Ant, and Kuonet who rounded out the top four.
      The tournament was a grueling one, with many players bringing Control Decks, and some of the rounds of Swiss lasting over 3 hours. The archetypes brought by the top four are listed below:
        Muzzy: Control Paladin, Giant Miracle Rogue, Jade Shaman, Quest Warrior
        DiegoDias: Jade Druid, Murloc Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
        Ant: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
        Kuonet: Discover Mage, Control Paladin, Evolve Shaman, Quest Warrior
      As you can see, the meta seems to be healthy, with many viable options.
      Next week is the APAC Spring Playoffs, at which point all sixteen qualifiers for the World Spring Championship will have been decided.

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

      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.
