HOW TO PLAY:
This is Zoo! Fight for board control then once you have it, keep it. Kill most high-level threat minons such as Tunnel Trogg or anything else with may pose a future/escalating risk and keep going face from there. This deck comfortably wins games by turns 5,6,7,8 Depending on draw.
Get that early game baby! Flame Imps/VoidWalkers/ Villagers/Dark Peddlers are instant keeps. If you have a good hand curve and/or the coin, Spawn/Imp Gang/ Dark shire (although you really only want to keep darkshire if you can afford to keep ritual or have a lot to play) THE KEY THING HERE IS TO GET MINIONS THAT MAINTAIN BOARD DOMINANCE, You need to ALWAYS KEEP things that either already synergize (knife juggler + 1 drops) or that are super sticky (like the aforementioned Imp Gang Boss). If you might be against another zoo deck and have the coin, Sea Giant wins you the game so always keep.
This is your unfavored match up if it's against Freeze/Control warr/Or priest but IT IS WINNABLE if you just keep calm and collected. Here you REALLY NEED Instant threats and board presence like FlameImps/Villagers/Peddlers (for options or just a turn 3)/Imp Gangs to establish and keep control of the board. SEA GIANTS ARE CRUCIAL here and are very good to keep with the coin as the sooner you play them the sooner you can win (REMEMBER BGH WAS NERFED). Also this is when Councilman shines as you can instantly start buffing him and HITTING THAT SWEET, SWEET FACE before they armor up or are able to clear your board.
KEEP YOUR CLEARS IN MIND :
Don't play into nova+Doomsayer, Holy Nova, Revenge, etc UNLESS YOU HAVE ENOUGH IN YOUR HAND TO RESTOCK. Greed gets you killed here. If your board is fat and you have a few minions that are relatively unchallenged, don't dump your hand just to have a full board because when they clear it and you can't refill: YOU LOSE.
Hope this helps you guys out. Feel free to comment (I try to read every single one) or follow/hit me up on twitter( @OS_TophatDemon) for anything else. Love y'all <3 .
