Right.

 

Tried this out for many games now. It seems really dependent on your starting hand, and whether the opponent is able to clear your first few cards, and they usually are.

 

Then they just clear your board with stronger early game minions and you run short of cards. I always end up 5-15 dmg short of winning. 

 

Im not particularly good, I never got past rank 9, but this deck is by far the worst ive ever played. How someone can get to legend with this is beyond my imagination.

61% with it in testing over 30+ games above rank 5, that's an easily achievable Legend winrate. Small sample size admittedly, but i'm experienced enough to know when a deck is just drawing well and experiencing positive variance, and when it's simply effective.

Is it the best deck in the game right now? No absolutely not. Can you get Legend with it if played well? Absolutely yes.

Guess you are right about that, facts dont lie.. my skillcap is just to low. 

 

Tried out the oil pirate edition thought to much greater succes, it seems the better finishing power created what I was unable to achieve in the pure pirate edition.

I'm having a lot of fun with this deck, but seem to either have win-streaks or loss-streaks. Early board presence seems to be quite important, or forcing enemies to use board clears early with stealthed One-Eyed Cheats.

 

I find it difficult to know when to drop cannons. Like, if I start with a cannon, deckhand, buccaneer, it's difficult to decide the order of play. Any tips?

Rogue just wasn't really given anything in TGT. The Cheap deck is still one of the most effective ones on the site, and beyond that, the break point is really having Preps, at which point you can look at playing a proper Oil Deck, Oil Rogue is the only really competitive Rogue deck and TGT hasn't really changed that at all.

Why can a basic Warrior deck destroy this one? Just played 3 hands on solo easy. I also find this deck to have very little defence. It seems to be a slow grinding deck for ranked matches.

Why is it that a basic warrior card deck can destroy this one? 0-3 in practice/easy.

Also played 0-20 in casual online. No defense. Too much emphasis on "a lucky draw". Example: Had a hunter take me down with taunts and hero power...

Decks like this take a lot of skill to play, but I'm up to the challenge. Pirate interactions are more subtle than other synergy decks like dragons or murlocs and take real focus to squeeze the last drop of value from them every turn.

Yes, the draw is important. Yes, consecrations and holy novas will screw more than one game. On the other hand, it actually IS a pirate deck. It may not be optimal or meta, but it's a full pirate playable deck, which is what i was looking for in the first place. If you're gonna make a rogue deck with 2 bucaneers and stick your Dr. Boom right next to them, don't call it a pirate deck. Azure drakes may be useful cards and boost your backstabs, flurries and eviscerates, but they weren't found on ships last time i checked.

Thanks for making this mate. I'm gonna tinker with it, add some custom stuff and take it to legend, even if it costs me a year of playing. ^^
P.S: I find sprint without preps is a bit too slow here... most of the  times if you don't have a clear advantage by turn 7, you cant afford wasting a full turn on that. I'm gonna experiment with burgle instead... mostly because i like that card and the "unexpected card" factor... Also, I'm sticking a Salty Dog in there while i save dust for Greenskin.

I genuinely think you are an awful player. I have never met anyone who could lose three times to an easy practice AI, even with something like Beast Priest. Now, with that said, let me explain why are you wrong.

 

Cards that are good even with bad draw: Backstab, Posion, Buccaneer, Eviscerate, Sap (sort of), SI:7, Assassin's blade, Sprint, Dread Corsair, Captain Greenskin (sort of). These cards should be able to delay the game until you draw into your pirate synergies. 

 

By "no defence" you mean 2 taunts, a weapon and cards that increase your weapon damage and, of course, minions that trade into other minions? And mainly, it is an AGGRO deck, so no defence needed - your opponent should need to defend, not you.

Can sprint be replaced by some other card such as burgle? I find it way too expensive without having preparation in your deck...

I wouldn't replace it with Burgle, you can replace it with Azure Drake though.

Now that I look at it, this deck needs an update. I played a much better version on stream recently and just forgot to add it, on the list!

Hello!

Can you tell us where we can find that deck, please?

 

Thanks!

      Winter Veil begins next week on Hearthstone and a special Tavern Brawl will award three Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs.
      Next week's Tavern Brawl will be really similar to the Gift Exchange one back from 2015 and February 2017. There will be some differences though, as the Brawl will have a Kobold flavour and it will have a new name: Wacky Waxy Winter Veil's Brawl.
      As Winter Veil is a frosty season, the reward will obviously be three packs from Knights of the Frozen Throne expansion. It's not sure if the Winter Veil Wreath card back, which was associated with the Gift Exchange brawl during the previous years' Winter Veils, will be available this time to those who don't already have it.
      Blizzard Entertainment
      ‘Tis the season! In celebration of Winter’s Veil—and to give all you adventurers something to do that doesn’t involve taking candles—Greatfather Kobold has prepared a special distraction, er, Winter’s Veil tavern brawl packed with wacky, waxy gifts!
      These treats aren’t just on the game board! The reward for winning your first game of this Tavern Brawl is THREE festively frosty Knights of the Frozen Throne card packs! 
      Greatfather Kobold’s helpers have been busy decorating the Orgrimmar game board for the tavern brawl, but you can also experience the holiday in Stormwind while enjoying other play modes. And no matter how you play, don’t forget to show your opponent some holiday spirit with the return of the Happy Winter’s Veil greeting emote!
      The Rules
      Greatfather Kobold will drop off some tastefully wrapped, candle-bearing gifts on turn one—four on each side of the board, for a total of eight. If you unwrap a gift, you’ll receive a Legendary minion that costs three fewer mana to play! Greatfather Kobold will keep the celebration going by periodically parachuting in more presents. Don’t be greedy, though! You’ll only get a discounted Legendary minion from the gifts Greatfather Kobold left on your opponent’s side of the field.
      How will you build your deck to make the most of these potent presents?
      The Wacky Waxy Winter’s Veil brawl begins December 20 and lasts through December 24, so be sure to drop in and celebrate!
      A very Happy Winter’s Veil to you and yours! (source)
      For now, you can enjoy this week's Tavern Brawl, which is Valeera's Bag of Burgled Spells.

      Following the tradition started with Knights of the Frozen Throne, Kobolds & Catacombs gets its first digital comic.
      "Up Comes Down" is a lighthearted story about two Kobolds, who decide to go off on their own despite the orders of King Togwaggle. In their short adventure in the Catacombs, they encounter many obstacles, but by cooperating they manage to emerge victorious.

      You can read and/or download the comic here.

      Can you find the best move in a deck full of cards from the new set?
      The first episode of WTM since the release of Kobolds & Catacombs, Aleco plays a "Big Spells Dragon Priest" deck full of brand of new cards.
      Kobolds and Catacombs has hit the competitive ladder with a bang, bringing it with it an unprecedented number of impactful new cards. Some cards have come as huge surprises (Spiteful Summoner, Corridor Creeper), others have been performing about as well as expected (Duskbreaker, Twilight Acolyte), and all four of these powerful new KnC cards are featured in the deck I've had the most success with over the past four days - Sattelite's Big Spells Dragon Priest. The deck has a ton of play to it and never fails to produce difficult decisions and interesting situations, such as the one I found myself in here:
      "What's the Move?" is now seeking viewer submissions for the future episodes. If you ever find yourself in a sticky situation on the ladder, please feel free to submit your plays, questions, and feedback to Aleco on twitter.
