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.

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 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.

      The update will take effect on October 18.
      Well, the balance changes were smaller than expected as only three cards were affected this time.
      As expected, Giggling Inventor was affected as it now costs 7 mana, up from 5. The team actually considered it too powerful for 6 mana, which raises the question why it was 5 mana in the first place. Anyway, it still remains an odd card if this is still relevant.

      Now, a big and unexpected change was Mana Wyrm being raised to 2 mana. The iconic Classic minion has undergone the Tunnel Trogg treatment and after 4+ years of power, it is ready to retire.

      And a Wild change to alleviate the devastating Druid combo: Aviana will now cost 10 mana. This means she can't be played at the same turn as Kun the Forgotten King and Juicy Psychmelon won't be able to draw both Kun the Forgotten King and Aviana with it.

      The update will go live on October 18th with the weekly reset. What do you guys think about the changes?

      Bosses from various Hearthstone adventure battle it out in this week's Tavern Brawl.
      This is the second time we see Boss Battle Royale 2, which itself is a variation of the original Tavern Brawl. This time, we have a new Druid hero and the Warlock hero Sindragosa has been slightly nerfed.
      You pick a class and then you get a specific boss hero, which has its special hero power and a predetermined deck:
      Druid: King Togwaggle (Magic Candle: 3 mana - Find a Treasure) Hunter: Skelesaurus Hex (Ancient Power: 0 mana - Give each player a random cards. It costs 0) Mage: The Curator (Gallery Protection: Passive - Your Hero has Taunt) Paladin: White King (Castle: 2 mana - Discover a chess piece) Priest: Professor Putricide (Mad Science: Passive - All Secrets cost 0) Shaman: Lady Naz'jar (Pearl of the Tides: At the end of your turn, replace all minions with new ones that cost 1 more) Rogue: Grobbulus (Poison Cloud: 2 mana - Deal 1 damage to all minions. If any die, summon a slime) Warlock: Sindragosa (Ice Claw: 2 mana - Do 2 damage. There will be 2 Blocks of Ice on your opponent's side of the board at the beginning of the game) Warrior: Coren Direbrew (Pile On!: 0 mana - Put a minion from each deck into the battlefield) Sindragosa is pretty powerful. Lady Naz'jar, Coren Direbrew and Skelesaurus Hex have random effects that can benefit your opponent - Lady Naz'jar seem to have more success than the other two. Grobbulus can work too, if you play smartly.
      Good luck!

      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.
