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!

      Various bosses from The Witchwood's Monster Hunt are ready to battle it out in this week's brand new Tavern Brawl.
      This is the first special Tavern Brawl that we will see during this year's Hallow's End.
      You just queue up and you get assigned a random boss from the Monster Hunt. Some of these bosses include:
      Azalina Soulthief (Hero Power: 2 mana - Summon three 1/1 Wisps) Blood Witch Greta (Passive Hero Power: Spells cost Health instead of Mana) Brushwood Centurion (Hero Power: 3 mana - All minions attack random enemy minions) Chupacabran (Hero Power: 1 mana - Give a friendly minion +1/+1 and Lifesteal) Plaguemaster Rancel (Hero Power: 2 mana - Deal 2 damage to a minion. If it survives, give it Poisonous) Shudderwock (Passive Hero Power - All Battlecries trigger twice) Winslow Tobtock (Hero Power: 2 mana - Each player shuffles their hand into their decks and draws that many cards) Wharrgarbl (Hero Power: 2 mana - Draw 3 Murlocs from your deck) Experiment 3C (Hero Power: 2 mana - Destroy a friendly minion and draw 3 cards) It's not sure how many bosses there are available, but they certainly have similar decks as during the PvE adventure. It might be worth checking our Monster Hunt guide to refresh your memory on some of their abilities or just experience them in action!

      Hallow's End is going to last from October 17 until October 31.
      As we've already discussed, you can log in to enjoy the spooky festivities and receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron.
      You will also get a free Arena entry ticket in order to test your mettle in the Dual Class Arena. Pick a Hero, choose the Hero Power of a second Hero and try to make the perfect mix with the combined might of both Heroes' class cards.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end: Monster Smash (October 17-22) and The Headless Horseman Rides Again (October 24 - 29)!
      Lastly, for a limited time you can purchase the new Paladin hero, Sir Annoy-o, as a Bundle along with 20 Witchwood packs at the price of $19.99 or 19.99 EUR. This mighty new hero even has his own backstory which you can read here.
      Later today, we should also see the balance changes go live.
    • By Zadina
      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!
