"Who dares summon me?" - Doomguard 


The Zoolock is an early game deck which specializes in playing a lot of small minions and buffing them to make value trades. Early game drops have very high value like Flame Imp, Voidwalker, and Haunted Creeper. Try to activate your Nerubian Eggs with Abusive Sergeant and Power Overwhelming. Life Tap is a very strong hero power to refill your hand with the "cheapness" of your deck. Late game look to finish off your opponent with Doomguards and silence their Taunts with Ironbeak Owl.


  • STRONG vs.
    • Druid, Mech Mage, Control Warrior
  • WEAK vs.
    • Face Hunter, Freeze Mage, Paladin



  • Look for a curve of minions and kill them since they can't remove your minions and establish board at the same time
  • Don't play into Swipe

  • Explosive Trap pops your eggs!
  • Knife Juggler+Unleash is very deadly - so try and trade off your 1/1s

  • Nerubian Egg and Haunted Creeper are strong versus their removal (Frostbolt, Flamecannon)

  • Try not to play into Consecration - one way is to not pop your Nerubian Eggs for the reload

  • Do not worry about any board clears. Kill them fast or die trying...for 20 turns
  • Sticky minions are very strong against their clears
  • Slam Doomguard at turn 5 since they have a hard time dealing with it

  • Establish a 2 attack creature quick for totem removal
  • Lightning Storm is probably the only card you can lose to

  • Against Handlock, watch their health for Molten Giants and keep a good board

  • Sticky minions are good against their weapons
  • Nerubian Egg is good versus Brawl - sometimes you don't even Taunt them up with Defender of Argus



  • In General...
    • Flame Imp+++, Voidwalker++, Nerubain Egg++, Haunted Creeper+++, Knife Juggler++, Argent Squire++
