    will this be sanctoned? The only reason I ask is because of players who are currently banned(like myself) that may wish to play.

    Zong/Zap/Star is old and has been around since Spring BR. If flips go your away it certainly is a powerful deck. Regardless, I don't believe it to be a contender in a larger scale tournament because your luck will run out.

    I agree. For you to just make T2 in worlds you would have to have luck for about 7 swiss rounds, T32, T16, T8, T4. I just don't think you can be that lucky for the whole tournament. That is just me. I guess you could, but I am not sure it is very likely. I think it would be better to play a deck that is a bit more consistant.
