Can't wait to try this deck out instead of the standard oil rogue, I will have to wait until I get Greenskin tho.

Just another large finisher card that you have available, Dr Boom is great if you have that, if not, just some form of late-game power.

I have replaced Cpt. for Edwin Vancleef because I dont have the dust for CPT, how does that work? I also have replaced one corsair for the new grand tournament card Shady dealer is that an okay swap?

- 1 shady dealer for dread corsair

- 1 buccaneer for dread corsair

Dear sottle

I like this deck it's fun and when rng wants it to be, it's devastating.

I swapped 1 bloodsail raider for 1 dr. boom, felt that I was missing a good top deck card and a big minion in late game.

Thank you for this deck.

1 question though, when you write 3-legend, does that mean that you have reached legend with the deck? Or that you Think reaching legend is possible?

Because i have only managed rank 9(in august stuck on 12 atm) and think for me a serious result is rank 7-6... Do I just suck or has TGT screwed this deck?

Regards

So, I test the decks wherever I happen to be on ladder at the time, and then extrapolate a ranking from there. I remember testing this deck explicitly, I was at Rank 3, and I had a slightly above 50% winrate with it, which is how i end up with the ranking I gave it. With enough time, I would have hit Legend, but it's not a particularly efficient deck for doing it.

Before I started looking into competitive decks, I just played some random hunter stuff. Nowadays Im just trying to figure out which hero suits my playstyle best, and Im really liking rogue. Im a bit short on dust to make a greenskin, and I havent seen anybody bring up Buccaneer yet. Im still pretty bad, but it seems like Buccaneer could really be a useful addition. A 1-mana pirate that will give your weapon +1 atk when you equip it? Obviously swapping greenskin reduces your late-game power, but it seems viable as a 1-of perhaps

this deck is pretty bad imo. So reliant on drawing things that will save you. bad tempo. have to pray to get a sprint

This deck has some good end damage and combos, but it is very lacking in consistent wins. I've tried this deck for  about 20 games. I Ranked my self back to rank 20. My frist win got me to rank 19 and that's where I stayed for the next 18 games with this deck. It is inconsistent and you have to pray for certain cards to stay ahead. It is fun and has great out play potential. Just rare it all works out correctly

Its the only deck thats ever gotten me past 14, and I was on a win streak from rank 18-11 towards the end of the september season. It takes some getting used to, but its always a fun time with Preparation + Tinkerer + Blade Flurry for a win :)

This deck gets made much less viable if you dont add in Greenskin. I thought it wasnt going to be a huge difference, but getting the +1 durability on your weapon is HUGE. it allows you to get an extra attack with your wep before blade flurry, and its not too difficult to get its attack to 6 or 7.

I'm trying this deck out, it's really fun, but I feel that Buccaneer is invaluable and should replace at least 2 cards in this deck.

I've been having issues with buccaneer, mainly that it keeps you from using your hero power turn 2. A big part of the deck is building up your weapon's power, so you arent going to be refreshing it very often to get the +1 atk buff buccaneer would give.

This has become my favorite deck right now, but Im having trouble with drawing enough cards. I always seem to be relying on getting strong draws from an empty hand, maybe I'm just not going for the proper mulligans? In general I try to keep 1 preparation, then two 2 drop or lower minions (or dread corsair) unless I have a preparation+sprint combo in hand. The only adjustment I've made to the deck is swapping one southsea deckhand for a buccaneer, and Im still on the fence about whether or not to keep it.

You actually should use hero power on turn 2 with buccaneer on the board. With most 2-drops being 3/2 or 2/2, it generates huge tempo for turn 3. Getting the bonus only once is enough to get you going - no need to use hero power every 2 turns.

 

Although you have only 4 cards that draw cards, you can draw a total of 10 cards which should be enough to get you going. The deck has low curve (sort of) and that means you can run out of cards pretty quickly. However, you play it bit more aggressively than Oil rogue. You should try to kill your opponent before you run out of steam, just like Hunter. 

 

Mulligan depends on your opponent. You generally want to mulligan for 2-drops and removals. Against control matchups, keeping Prep+Sprint is reasonable, but definitely not against aggro matchups. Also, Poison+Dread Corsair is good for your early tempo. 

 

There is an updated version of Pirate Rogue that runs 2 Buccaneers. If you like this version of Pirate Rogue, you could start building towards the TGT version of it.

I've swapped a Tinker's with a Southsea Captain, other than that, I'm using the standard setup.

Could Gruul be put to use in this deck? I've tried but he gets massive spell rain and dies before 2nd round. Maybe I'm just using it wrong?

Tinker is the main combo and I am not sure you want to use just one, especially without TGT cards. TGT introduced few new pirates such as buccaneer, which give Captain more value. You will still lack a finisher. If you are able to draw into a pirate synergy card in 2 turns, then he is a great card. However, it gets destroyed by a 2 drop, making it a low-value card in aggressive meta.

 

Gruul is indeed a bad card, especially in a deck like this, where opponent doesn't want to waste a removal spell on pirates and rather waits for Boom, Ragnaros or a similar minion. BGH will be a problem, too, as you have no other BGH targets, so your opponent will often have it in his hand.

 

Also, TGT version of this deck is way stronger. If you want to seriously play pirate, I recommend crafting towards that one.

      YouTuber, Disguised Toast, is never far from the front of Hearthstone science, and his latest video is spectacular. This video investigates the strange interactions caused by Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle.
      Weasel Tunneler's Deathrattle seems simple enough, it reads: Shuffle this minion into your opponent's deck. However, when tested by Disguised Toast, it turns out that even this simple looking text can result in rather odd results. The ordering of other Deathrattles on the board, and effects by other cards on Deathrattles is what makes it so unpredictable. Take a look for yourself!
      The fact your deck displays as full, no matter how many cards left, is probably the strangest interaction of all. Even Toast doesn't  attempt to describe how that one happens.

      Blizzard have updated the breakdown of the amount each gang's classes are being played.
      On their Gadgetzan page, there is an infographic showing who controls the town of Gadgetzan today. The percentages are worked out by how often each class is being used. Even with the huge amount of Pirate Warrior on ladder at the moment, the Grimy Goons are unable to control the city! That honour goes, currently, to the Kabal. With people having success with Reno Warlock AND Reno Priest, it will be fun to see if they hold that position in the coming days.

      So I got a lot of jade cards for druid and neutral in the 15-20 packs I've opened, and I wanted to make a jade druid deck, right? But I'm poor, so I look up "Jade Druid Budget Deck". I find one on this site with the following deck list:
       
      2x Innervate 2x Jade Idol MSG 2x Living Roots TGT 2x Raven Idol LoE 2x Wild Growth 2x Wrath 2x Feral Rage TOG 2x Jade Blossom MSG 2x Swipe 2x Nourish 2x Jade Behemoth MSG 2x Jade Spirit MSG 2x Azure Drake 2x Gadgetzan Auctioneer 2x Arcane Giant Kara But I don't have Raven Idol. Or nourish, though I can just craft that since it's in classic. So can anyone suggest an option for replacing the raven idols? I don't want to get all of League of Explorers just to play with it for a month then watch it turn to dust so I can craft other cards for decks in standard. I have one branch, but that's it. I was thinking maybe 1 jeweled scarab, though I know that card is frowned upon for reasons I've never been made aware of, for flexibility, and a loot hoarder for pure draw.
