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.

What do you guys think of adding Captain's Parrot for deck thinning and toolboxing?

That sounds pretty awful to be honest. The card draw isn't worth the cost of having a 1/1 in your deck.

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!

      The Americas Region HCT Spring Playoffs will take place over the weekend of 27-28 May 2017.
      The HCT Spring playoffs for the Europe region was completed last weekend, with Hoej, Kolento, Neirea, and Rdu qualifying for the Global Championship next month.
      This weekend is the turn of the Americas region, and the reaction last week is that many players have submitted very greedy control decks in their lists. The players who have submitted the greediest lists will be well placed in the control mirror matches, but those same players will need to dodge the handful of Aggro lineups that are out there.
      To find out if your favourite player has qualified, you can check the standings here. The top 64 and ties made it to the main event, along with 8 Tavern Heroes. The event can be seen on the official Twitch channel from 8am PDT on Day One and 9am PDT on Day Two.

Mulligans sees an ordinary guy complete the quests that everyday life throws his way with the help of some unusual friends: Uther, Jaina, and Gul’dan.

      The Europe Spring Playoffs and Championship took place over the weekend of May 20-21, which decided not only the new Europe Champion, but also the four players who would represent Europe at the Global Spring Championship in Shanghai next month.
      After seven rounds of Swiss, the top eight players cut to a knockout phase. The results of which were as follows:
        Hoej beat   FibEli3
        Neirea beat   INER
        Rdu beat   Casie
        Kolento beat   StanCifka
      This means that Hoej, Neirea, Rdu, and Kolento will represent Europe in the Global Championship. The top eight being so strong is a sign that the metagame is in a healthy place. All of the players were already known to be among the best in Europe, and despite their lineups differing substantially, they were still able to make it through.
      Hoej went on to take the title, beating Kolento 3-0 in the final. Hoej has been touted as one of the best players in Europe for some time, but traditionally has brought Control decks to major events. This time around, he brought a very aggressive lineup, and was rewarded for his willingness to adapt his style to the meta.
      The deck archetypes that each player brought to the event are listed below:
      Hoej: Aggro Druid, Secret Mage, Murloc Paladin, Pirate Warrior
      Kolento: Jade Druid, Midrange Paladin, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Neirea: Jade Druid, Discover Mage, Quest Rogue, Quest Warrior
      Rdu: Aggro Druid, Face Hunter, Aggro Shaman, Pirate Warrior
      The next four players to qualify for the Global Championship will be decided next week, with the Americas Spring Championships.

      The Hearthstone Championship Tour (HCT) European Spring Playoffs will take place this weekend, 20-21 May 2017.
      This will be the first playoff event since Journey to Un'Goro was released, and so if anyone has saved any surprise deck tech, this is the event where it will be revealed.
      The top 64 point earners, and ties, from the EU server will be joined by 8 Tavern Hero tournament qualifiers for the event, which will be played in esports bars across Europe. If you want to attend one of the events to cheer on your local favourite, the list of locations can be found here. There will be side events for anyone wishing to attend, with Blizzard prizes available for winners, and the Power Core cardback for all attendees.
      The point standings, showing the top 64, can be found here. As usual the event is stacked with many of the big names from the region. The top four will advance to the HCT Spring Global finals next month.
