Lately, many have asked me for a post-nerf zoolock list. Seeing how many people are pleading for it, I've decided to make another zoolock guide. This time around I wanted to share Muzzy's awesome list with you guys, which many people have started to adapt, given how successful it has been lately.
What makes this deck special and different from pre-nerf zoolock lists is the inclusion of the demon package instead of the traditional Keleseth, Pirates and Councilman build. This deck is nuts versus druids because of how big you can go on your minions, which is further aided by Fungalmancer - a new addition to all Zoolock lists thanks to our buddy Muzzy.
If you guys are interested in the deck, I'll soon write a deck guide. Please leave an upvote as it helps out a lot. In the meantime, feel free to ask any questions about the deck in the comments section!
As usual, our good friend Kiwiinbacon and Kadakk have made a video on the deck, spotlighting its power and place within the current meta. They make some great plays and explain every play they make, so make sure to watch the videos.

+20 upvotes= Mulligans and Card replacements.
Bloodreaver Gul'dan: Lich King > Spellbreaker > Hungry Crab
Malchezaar's Imp: Hungry Crab, versus murlocadin/ Spellbreaker, versus control and cube warlocks.
NEVER KEEP: 5 DROPS, Saronite Chaingang and Bloodreaver Gul'dan in opening hand.
With the Coin: 2x 1 drops + Vulgar Homunculus, 1 mana/2 mana demon with potion and/or demonfire, Darkshire Councilman. Never keep Blood Imp unless with another 1 mana or 2 mana demon.
Going first: 1 drops, 1 mana demon + demonfire, Vulgar Homunculus + Bloodfury Potion. Generally, you're trying to look for a hand that curves and synergises well.
Exceptions: You can consider tossing Librarian away against Mages, Rogues and Paladins; only keep Blood Imp with other 1 drops AND if it curves out well.
+40 upvotes= Matchups and tech choices
Favourable vs: All rogues, druids, hunters, shamans, warriors and mirrors.
Unfavorable vs: Mage, Paladin, Priest and control warlocks.
Bloodreaver Gul'dan: Instant win 90% of the time once you get to play it. Insanely good vs control.
Mortal Coil: Really versatile card. Can be used to cycle vs aggro.
Fungalmancer: Post-nerf bonemare.
Saronite Chaingang: Compliments fungalmancer and is really good against aggro.
Against control, try to not discard Gul'dan and play around their board clears.
Against aggro, try to make as many value trades as possible and don't bother with not discarding Gul'dan, in most cases.
You generally want to spread your buffs as evenly as possible, so that you don't lose to hard removal or a silence effect.
