Zoo vs Zoo = fun?

Posts: 3,022
From what I can tell, the first player always wins due to first turn and +1 mana advantage, which matters a lot due to how consistent the deck tends to be.
Turn 1/2 soulfire is the only thing that can turn the game around.

Part of it depends on your tech picks. Mortal Coil Elven Archer, and the like can be stronger response cards.

But mostly, yeah, a lot of it is determined by whoever gets momentum/board control first, and the one that goes first certainly has the edge in that.

I find it's all about how you roll your face on the keyboard vs how your enemy does. Perfect the art of face rolling (you're playing zoo so you're well on your way) then you'll do better against other face rollers.

I tend to agree the person who goes first tends to win, but getting all of your minions that trade well will help a lot. When I face warlock against my zoo I'll mulligan for divine shields and harvest golems, since they'll stick around after taking damage. The match is all about board control

Lol, someone's salty. Maybe try playing the deck to learn how to counter it instead of making stupid comments about the deck.

I beat zoo just fine. Play zoo? I'd quit the game before reducing myself to that deck.

A simple early soulfire can turn the board around even if you are second.

I play a few bigger guys in my zoo, and I find if I can get a little control on the board, I can win mirrors a bit more just because of that. It's really down to the fine-tuning of the deck I think: I'd die to anyone who ran hellfire, that's for sure.

Doubt it, it would clean both sides of the board (except divine shield/golems) and he would have 3 less mana to repopulate it.
