Our Zoo Warlock deck list guide features the best Rastakhan deck list for Season 57 of Hearthstone (December 2018). Our Zoo Warlock guide also contains Mulligan advice, card combos and strategy tips.

Zoo Warlock is one of the oldest decks in Hearthstone and has been helping new players learn the ins and outs of the game since the very earliest beta phases. It's a deck that's focused on maintaining gentle early-game control, before snowballing into the kind of broad threat that the opponent will often struggle to overcome.

As we’re in the early days of the new Rastakhan’s Rumble expansion, Zoo Warlock has once again re-emerged as one of the most popular decks being played, as it is able to punish many of the more experimental decks being played on the ranked ladder. A few new cards make their way into the list in this latest update but, for the most part, it's business as usual for the Hearthstone classic.

In our guide to playing the Rastakhan version of Zoolock, we've highlighted a deck list that's about as good as it gets right now, and should prove to be a pretty effective way of climbing the ladder over the next week or so. We've also got some strategy advice about how the deck functions, a bit of advice on the Mulligan process and we've also updated our combo tips to suit the latest version of the deck.

UPDATE - DECEMBER #3

Zoo Warlock is one of those decks that many people like to turn to during the uncertainty of a new meta, and so we wanted to make sure our recommended deck list was properly up to date. We're happy this is the best list for Zoo right now, but will keep checking in on it and will tweak if necessary.

Zoo Warlock deck list and strategy

This is the most competitive version of Zoo Warlock that's being played at this stage of the Rastakhan meta. We'll keep updating it over time so you always have the best version of the deck to play with.

General strategy

Zoo Warlock is a minion-heavy deck that aims to take control of the board in the early game by efficiently trading with your opponent’s creatures and using the Life-Tap hero power to keep your hand full of resources. With a lot of powerful early game drops, you can storm out into a lead early on and either overwhelm your opponent before they have a chance to respond, or close out the game with some final burst damage in the late game.

Zoo Warlock always seems to do well during the first few days of a new expansion launch and things are no different with Rastakhan’s Rumble. Building upon the cards added in Boomsday, new spell Grim Rally gives you a way to buff all your minions by + 1 / + 1, which can be massively impactful if it hits a full board. Meanwhile, the new Saronite Taskmaster minion offers some terrific stats for a one-drop that should push your early game advantage even further.

Early game: Contest the board with your powerful early drops and make sensible trades where possible. Remember, Zoo Warlock is a board control deck and not one for rushing face damage. If you have Prince Keleseth, you’ll obviously want to play that immediately on Turn 2, or coin it out if you’re going second to buff all the remaining minions in your deck.

Mid game: Continue applying pressure through the likes of Saronite Chain Gang, and buffing the minions you have on the board already with Fungalmancer. At this stage, you should consider weaving in a Life-Tap every turn where possible to ensure you don’t run out of resources. Soul Infusion also works as a good way to spend leftover mana while buffing minions in your hand. You can also use Grim Rally to kill off one of your weaker minions, and buff the rest of your board if you have a good number of creatures alive.

Late game: If you’ve stormed out into a lead then the game may already be over at this point, or you’ll at least be looking for that last extra chunk of damage. Doomguard is perfect for that job, though it can be used for trading if you’re in dire need of its help. Sometimes it may be better to ignore your opponent’s minions or nullify them with Spellbreaker, and just push for damage if you think you can close out the game in time. Now is also the time to use Soulfire as direct damage to wrap up the match.

Aggro opponents

We’ve put together a few tips to deal with other aggro decks you may face on ladder:

  • 1. It’s even more important to trade cleverly against aggro decks, as Zoo Warlock has very few comeback mechanisms if you fall behind on the board.
  • 2. Saronite Taskmaster offers strong stats for a one-mana minion, but be careful of the token you give to your opponent on its death. An aggro deck can make a 0 / 3 Taunt much more threatening than you might expect.
  • 3. Saronite Chain Gain can be excellent at slowing down aggressive decks, while keeping your early game minions safe.
  • 4. Soulfire can be used to kill a minion in a pinch, but it’s usually best saved for burn damage versus aggro.
  • 5. Ensure you Life-Tap when you can, but be careful of doing so too aggressively and putting yourself on a dangerously low amount of Health that a fast aggro deck can reduce to nothing out of nowhere.

Control opponents

Keep these tips in mind when you come up against control decks:

  • 1. Definitely think about playing more aggressively against control, as you may be able to finish them off before they get a chance to stabilise.
  • 2. At the same time be cautious of over-extending into board clear if you know one could be coming next turn. Make sure you have some resources saved in reserve, just in case.
  • 3. Many control decks will try to block your damage with Taunt minions, but Spellbreaker can negate their effect. Consider saving it, though, for your final burst of damage.
  • 4. It’s also less of a problem in these matchups if you need to use Soulfire to clear a minion.
  • 5. Use Grim Rally to destroy your weakest minion and buff everything else on your side of the board. The extra stats can give you extra damage more quickly, or increase the health of your minions to avoid death by AOE spells.

Zoo Warlock Mulligan guide

Prince Keleseth and your most impactful one drops are the cards you’ll want to be searching for in the Mulligan phase.

  • 1. Prince Keleseth: Can give you a huge advantage right from the off by buffing all the remaining minions in your deck.
  • 2. Flame Imp: Quite simply a very powerful early game minion.
  • 3. Kobold Librarian: Can trade up into some two drop minions and draws a new card into your hand.
  • 4. Saronite Taskmaster: Having a 2 / 3 minion on turn one is incredibly powerful, so you’ll want to hold onto this if you find it.
  • 5. Fire Fly: Another of the game’s strongest one-mana minions, making it an important hold if you draw it in the Mulligan phase.

Zoo Warlock tips, combos and synergies

Zoo may be one of the oldest archetypes in the game but the new expansion has shaken the formula up a little. Make sure you're up to speed with all of the following combos before taking this deck to the ladder.

- Don't even begin to worry about the negative Battlecry effects of Kobold Librarian. You're a Warlock after all, and so you should be well used to sacrificing a little bit of Health for an advantage elsewhere!

- Soul Infusion causes the left-most minion in your hand to gain an extra +2 +2 stats when played.

- When choosing a friendly minion to kill off with Grim Rally make sure it’s the weakest creature on your side of the board. Be sure too that the buff is going to provide enough additional stats to make up for the target's sacrifice. Hitting three or more minions is a good ballpark figure to aim for with the buff.

- Once Prince Keleseth has been fielded, all of the minions remaining in your deck pile gain +1 / +1 of stats. This is a huge tempo advantage, and so you should aim to get this character out in play as early as possible in every match.

- If you can find a way of landing the bonus effect of Soul Infusion on Doubling Imp it'll be a very strong play. Even better if Prince Keleseth has boosted those creatures even further.

- Slap Fungalmancer between two other friendly minions and they'll both gain an extra two points of Attack and Health.

Card choices and subsitutions

These are some of the key cards in the current version of Zoo Warlock. As most are so cheap in terms of dust you shouldn’t need to look for replacements.

  • Flame Imp: Strong stats for a one drop that you’ll happily take three damage for in order to assert yourself on the board early.
  • Saronite Taskmaster: Another minion with excellent stats for a one drop. Handing your opponent a 0 / 3 after it dies isn’t too big of an issue either, when you see it as just giving them an additional three health - be cautious if they can buff it though.
  • Grim Rally: Zoo Warlock often goes very wide on the board, so you can remove a weaker minion from the field to give everything else a significant buff for very minimal cost.
  • Soul Infusion: Getting a +2/+2 buff on any of your cheap minions is pretty huge – and the spell costs very little itself too!
  • Prince Keleseth: Can offer a huge advantage if you cast it as early as possible by buffing all the remaining minions in your deck.
  • Saronite Chain Gang: A good anti-aggro card that also drops two bodies onto the board. Follow it up with a Fungalmancer next turn and you’ll be in for a great time.
  • Doubling Imp: If you can buff this is your hand with Soul Infusion or Prince Keleseth before playing it then you can but two surprisingly tough minions on the board for relatively cheap.
  • Spellbreaker: Useful for getting through any annoying Taunt minions that could be in your way and preventing that final chunk of damage.
  • Doomguard: A strong finisher that can also trade with your opponent’s minions very effectively if necessary.
  • Fungalmancer: To get the most value out of the buff this card provides make sure it can hit two minions to give them both a healthy stat boost in the mid game.

    @Truncle "If your deck has not 2-cost cards" means that Keleseth's battlecry will not trigger if there is a 2 cost card like "Defile", so Keleseth would work with this deck if there are 1,3,4,5,6,7,8,9 and 10-cost cards.

    I apologize, but I am not tracking this deck. It says to use The Prince, but that card text says that it only works if your deck has no cards that cost more than 2. But fungal mancer and doom guard and Spellbreaker are more than 2? So how does Prince work?

    Go to the hsreplay page here, and sort the decks by winrate. You'll notice 0 of the top 10 have soulfire infusion/doubling imp. The first popular list with those two cards is at 58% winrate and is playing sea giants and such. The more conventional soulfire infusion/doubling imp builds aren't until 56-57%.
    Sign in to reply
  • Grunyarth #7 2 months ago
    If you look at the statistics on hsreplay.net, the version of this deck with soulfire infusion and doubling imp is doing worse by a surprising amount (3-4% it seems). This is considering the winrate of the best zoolock lists on the site with over a few thousand games. I think you should update this guide to reflect that, as it really is an amazingly large difference considering how much more synergistic this list can feel.

  • roberthaynes80 #15 2 years ago
    @Klck I think you misunderstand how Leeroy is used in Zoo. You look at it as he's not an equal board presence to Doomguard, and that's true, but that's now why he's being selected. You can hoard Power Overwhelming and cast them on Leeroy for a huge end-game burst. You can't do that with Doomguard because they get discarded. Also, most of the 'locks I've seen on the ladder this past season have been running the discard version of zoo, with the imp and Silverware Golem. They DO run Doomguard because the imps return the lost cards.

    @koolcat1101 You r wrong mate, i was also. There are no downsides playing doomguard as you play it as last card in hand. Also leeeeeeeeroy hits once then hes dead, while doomguard hits and need to be answered or he hits again.

    Leeroy is good replacement while you have no doomguards.

    @Klck Definitely valid. I think we're going to see a lot of changes in the first full month of Karazhan, now that every card has been released. It's quite hard to definitively call these deck lists right now.

    I'd encourage everyone to experiment with every variation right now, and if you find one that works in your corner of the ladder, stick with it! We'll have a better sense of what works within the broader metagame for the next update I think.

    -1 argent squire

    + 1 kara kazham (great synergies with knife juggler, councilman and sea giants)
    + leeeeeeeeroy (cant even compare doomguard to him, its hard to power overwhelm doomguard, isnt it?)
    + 2 sea giant

    I main zoo atm. My version is a bit faster than Yours and a bit slower than Trumps one.

    Changes according to Yours list:

    - Brann Bronzebeard (hes 50% times great especially when followed up by defender of argus, and 50% just fine. Since i cut dark iron dwarf its not 50% anymore.)

    - Dark iron dwarf (just worst guy in party.)

    + 2x mortal coil (so many aggro in meta nowadays, and its simle 2 for 1.

    Also tested Moroes. Too slow, maybe he finds home in some token themed deck.

    Just wondering why your list contains 29 cards.
    @Sonic1337 You can always consider 2nd Dark Iron Dwarf in a place of Sea Giant. Leeroy is hard to be replaced beacuse its a finnisher. You should look arround for something that cost 5-6 and make immediate effect on board. No idea if You can actualy find something.
    Sign in to reply
  • Bedders #33 2 years ago
    @Sonic1337 It depends very much on what you have in your collection. Leeroy gives you burst/surprise finish so I guess you want anything that charges. Reckless Rocketeer as a budget possibility?

    Do you have Gormok the Impaler? That used to be a common component of Zoo (in recent months at least), and gives you the same sort of minion-fuelled bonus effect of Se Giant albeit without the meaty stats on the board.

    I have a few positioning questions:


    Why did he put that many minions, wasn't he in risk of a Brawl? This deck is usually running 1 brawl though at 9:18 he says these decks aren't usually running one :/
    I would have played Tap + Defender here.
    Also, shouldn't have he put the Darkshire Councilman between the Knife Juggler and Imp Gang Boss as he doesn't usually need a wolf as an activator.

    At 8:36 he explains that Argent Squires and Possessed Villages go on the edges, with priority to the right edge.
    Considering Forbidden Ritual (which puts the 1/1s to the right), shouldn't the left edge have priority so that these 2 minions don't stop the wolf+sliding combo?

    Trump thinks he is some kind of card genius when it comes to throwing decks together. Hearthstone is such a noob game to begin with and has so few cards it's pretty easy to toss variants of themed decks around its not funny. This deck is nothing more than an Afro lock with a few gvg catds tossed in and a win condition. Hearthstone is in a state of static play until the new adventure is released and then it will cycle again. Making counter decks to the current flavor of the week and being lucky on draws will net you a 55% win rate and a 250-300 game legend climb for your card back. Blizzard has successfully done what they always do best.......designing a game that puts luck and a time sink together to make you so pissed off you spend money to bypass the time aspect to only find that the luck you need puts you back to time sink mode. Congrats to trump and all the others who claim glory on having more time to waste on a game than other people. Trump couldn't save his ass in a game of Texas hold'em because he wouldn't know how to counter a full house with his ace high hahahaha......

    Nice run! Reading through your comment, you might actually like to have a play around with the Demon Control Warlock that's doing the rounds at the moment. That's got a lot of the cards you want to play with, but you'll need Sylvanas, Dr. Boom, Ragnaros and Lord Jaraxxus to get the most out of it.

    Links aren't working at the moment (tech are on it), but if you look under the Deck Guide section of the site, you should find our guide a few rows down.

    Well, I played this deck without a loss from 18-14 , so it seems pretty strong! (I haven't played much this or last season, hence the low start). In the end I ran afoul of a hunter that busrt me down. Imp-losion is dangerous there! Pre-GvG i took a zoo-lock to rank 4, and I miss the power overwhelming/nerubian egg/void terror combo from that. I might look to modify this deck a little, drop one or both imposions for void terrors and get a darkbomb in there somewhere, see how that fares.
