Fledgling Zoo Warlock Deck

Last updated on Nov 13, 2017 at 16:47 by L0rinda 31 comments

Table of Contents

This version of Zoo adds Vicious Fledgling, and removes Southsea Captain. This leads to a deck that is more aggressive and is less good at controlling the board. Against Control decks, the Fledgling will often draw out removal and pave the way for your bigger minions late in the game. If it does not draw out removal, it is capable of winning the game unchallenged.

1. Card List

This deck costs 6,240 Arcane Dust and it is made up of the following cards.

3. Comments On The Variation

Although in an ideal world Vicious Fledgling would win the game on its own, it is likely that your opponent will have a way to remove it. This, however, is the point of the inclusion in the deck. The removal spent on the Fledgling should give you more chance of sticking one of your midrange minions to the board, which in turn means that Bonemare has a better chance of finding a target.

If your Fledgling does manage to get in an attack to the face, you should do everything you can to protect it. Firstly, if you can get Windfury you should always do so, as you get another attack on the same turn with which you can get another Adapt effect. After that, you will need to know your opponent's most likely removal options. If they rely on AoE damage, +3 Health can put it out of range. If they rely on targeted removal, you can make the Fledgling untargetable or give it Stealth. As a last resort you can add the Deathrattle effect and get yourself two 1/1s, which can become Bonemare targets later on.

A Spellbreaker is included in the deck, and if you can use it to get your Vicious Fledgling through a Taunt, you should usually take the opportunity to do so.

4. Pros and Cons

This deck can be a bit better than the featured deck against Control decks as it contains more meaningful threats. It will also pick up the occasional "Free Win" when the Fledgling runs riot in the early-game. The downside is that against minion-heavy decks, the exclusion of Southsea Captain means that your Patches the Pirate is a lot less effective and it is harder to keep control of the board.

5. Quick Mulligan

You should refer to the main Zoo guide for full mulligan instructions, but you are looking to play on curve and you should plan your first three or four turns to be as smooth as possible.
