It should be Bloodsail Cultist in paragraph 3.1.4, not Bloodsail Corsair.

 

No love for Naga Corsair? Seems like a good fit for the deck, even at 4 mana.

Card was fixed.

As for Naga Corsair, I feel like the big downside is that it doesn't give you +1 durability. What would you hope to drop for it?

Mortal strikes?

I am saying this as 1 attack buffer together with the durability of the weapon, cultist and upgrades would give the same 4 damage. And this is not too situational and it is a pirate and it is a 5/4 body and also... I guess thats it.

So, I think its worth trying.

Against other aggro decks where mortal strikes will be 6 damage sometimes, having the body, and not exactly a small one I would say, will have a better effect, in my opinion of course.

Why I dont try this, I have like no cards from the set, only bought one with gold and 6 packs the game give. Nothing related to this deck sadly.

Yeah, +1/+1 would have been better, but it would have made for a crazy powerful neutral common.

Right now, I'm going to use one as placeholder for Hobart Grapplehammer. Didn't pull him yet and I have an already way too long list of more universally useful/archetype-defining legendaries to craft before him.

After that, it'll depend. The Flame Jugglers and Sir Finley Mrrgglton are going to have to go at one point, we'll see what to replace them with then.

You definitely don't cut MS's from the deck. Once your opponent starts playing taunts, MS is the only means of reach you have in the deck(unless you picked up hunter hero power), so you will just lose the game if you don't have it.

I ran this deck for 30 games and took some notes.  

W/L of 21-9.  

Shamans were the biggest issue followed by Freeze Mage.  

Weapon removal tools can really be annoying and slow things down. 

The deck takes some getting used too this deck but it excels with a lot of early game tools that can have you dealing out major damage in the early turns.  Most games didn't last ten turns with about 40% of wins came by turn 6.  

The trick is getting into a groove and know when to hit the face and when to trade a minion.

Lastly Hunters, Druids, Warlocks and Mages about 2/3's of the opponent in the games.

Did you run into Dragon/Reno Priest at all? I'm around 20-19 and every other game is against a Reno/Priest deck.  If you have how does an all out agro deck like this do against such control decks?

Hi

I can't get higher than rank 9. What am I doing wrong?

It's really hard to say without seeing or reading what you do at all. Most common mistake is trading too much.

I don't have much experience with aggro warriors so I'm a little confused.

I know the best starting hand is the nzoth pirate, deckhand, and raider, since you get a weapon which buffs the raider and gives the deckhand charge.

 

But if I don't get a n'zoth or a weapon in my opening hand, when should I play the pirates?

Like should I still put out the raider as a 2/2, or hold it until i get a weapon? Should I put out the deckhand without charge?

And if I have those pirates and something like "upgrade", should I use it for its weapon on turn one, or save it until i get a real weapon or a n'zoth?

You can play most of the pirates even if you aren't getting much synergy out of them. You can play Bloodsail Raider a 2/3 if you have no better turn 2 play. If you haven't drawn Patches the Pirate, playing Southsea Deckhand on turn 1 without charge is often fine.
As for Upgrade!, you should attempt to avoid playing it as a weapon, and rather wait for a weapon most of the time.

      Dave Kosak is here with a new Hearthside Chat to talk about Dungeon Runs. He also showcased a new legendary card from the new expansion!
      We've already talked about Dungeon Runs, one of the new features that Kobolds & Catacombs will bring. Lead Mission Designer Dave Kosak explains in this latest Hearthside Chat the design process behind Dungeon Runs.
      Dave presented some unique elements only present in Dungeon Runs. For example, there is a card you can pick called Cloak of Invisibility, which has a Passive effect of giving your minions permanent Stealth.
      He also gave some insight on the encounters. Some Dungeon Runs can have thematic encounters, like there's a band of Troggs or Trolls you will have to beat. As far as the Trolls are concerned, Battlecrier Jin'zo has a passive effect that is similar to Brann Bronzebeard, which you and him can both benefit from! Similarly, Spiritspeaker Azun's passive works like Baron Rivendare for both parties, while Voodoomaster Vex combines both of these passive effects!
      The narrator, that will be guiding you through your Dungeon Run, is King Togwaggle - the king of the Kobolds himself! He is also going to be an actual card available in the next expansion:

      Here's the official blog post with everything you need to know about Dungeon Runs:
      Blizzard Entertainment
      What’s a Dungeon Run?
      Dungeon Run is a new insanely fun, single-player “rogue-like” mode where you’ll face deadly encounters and collect incredible Treasures to build a deck worthy of a hero!
      When your Dungeon Run starts, you’ll choose a Hero and receive a starting deck consisting of 10 cards. You’ll use it to overcome eight encounters of increasing difficulty (chosen randomly from a huge pool of 48 possible encounters!) to clear the run.

      That initial deck might be enough to help you squeak by your first opponent, but you’ll need to get stronger if you hope to clear the whole run. Each time you defeat a Dungeon Run encounter, you’ll be given an opportunity to “level up” your Dungeon Run deck with themed sets of three cards appropriate to your class. Occasionally, you’ll also be able to pick from a selection of three incredibly powerful Treasure cards—non-collectible cards and abilities made just for this mode that are too blatantly overpowered to see normal play.
      You’ll need all that power—as well as your wits—because these encounters can be fiendishly difficult. Victory is not assured, and each encounter has its own unique perils. If one of them gets the better of you, defeat is permanent, so you’ll have to start a different run with a whole new deck!
      If you manage to complete a full Dungeon Run with each of the nine Classes—no mean feat!—you’ll add the Candle King card back to your collection.

      In this article, we are covering two new cards: Temporus, a Priest legendary minion, and Benevolent Djinn, a Paladin common minion.
      Benevolent Djinn was revealed earlier today by Thai player Anothersayoran1. The name of the card was officially confirmed by Puffin.

      Image by Hearthpwn.
      It is difficult to judge this card without seeing it in action. It’s comparable to Friendly Bartender: while the Djinn heals for more, its 2 attack value is a bit mediocre for a 3-mana minion. Shaman’s Hot Spring Guardian is slightly better, since it has Taunt and a targeted heal effect. Then again, Djinn also acts like a Taunt, in the sense that your opponent probably has to spend early resources to remove its powerful effect. Both cards, though, are beaten by Tar Creeper.
      This make the Djinn a great anti-aggro tool. Additionally, it synergises well with Blackguard and its Elemental tribe means that maybe we’ll get to see an Elemental Paladin. This is definitely a powerful Arena card. But can it secure a spot in constructed mode? It looks difficult, since Paladin already has some great 3-mana minions.

      This intriguing minion was revealed by Eurogamer. Its sister site, Metabomb, sat down with Peter Whalen and Ben Thompson to talk about this card. Both developers think that Temporus can be run in either the classic OTK Priest (Divine Spirit + Inner Fire) or in two new versions of Dragon Priest: a more midrange one and an OTK one with Malygos. 
      It would be interesting to see what it's interaction is going to be with Brann Bronzebeard. Temporus is a "high risk, high reward" card and, even if you don't like it or it turns out to be bad, you'd still have to commend its design.

      The 2016 Hearthstone World Champion revealed this rare Druid card.
      Grizzled Guardian was unveiled on Pavel's YouTube channel. It's a rare Druid Beast, that costs 8 mana and has 3 attack and 5 health. It has Taunt and Deathrattle: "Recruit 2 minions that cost (4) or less". Pavel's video is in Russian, but you can enable accurate English subtitles to see what the World Champion has to say about that card.
      After watching Pavel's video, I am convinced that Grizzled Guardian isn't as bad as it looks at first sight. Sure, its stats are garbage, but you should also factor in the stats of the minions it pulls from your deck when it dies. Still, it's hard to see it fit into the current meta. Perhaps, it can see play when the Year of the Kraken sets rotate out of Standard. It also weakens the 8-mana slot for Evolve and similar effect.
      What's your opinion on Grizzled Veteran? As always, all the cards of the new expansion can be found in our Kobolds & Catacombs hub.
      PS: Turns out it's not Hogger 3.0 :(

      The newest Legendary Shaman minion has me shaking in my boots. Is this the card that will put Elemental Shaman over the top?
      Chinese Hearthstone streamer Snowkiss has revealed the Legendary Shaman minion from K&C. This bad boy appears to pack quite the punch - my mind is already racing with potential combos and synergies for Grumble, World Shaker:

      Card image courtesy of Hearthpwn.com
      Elementals have plenty of powerful Battlecry triggers which Grumble could play for a second time. Kalimos, Primal Lord, Servant of Kalimos, Blazecaller, and Jade Spirit immediately come to mind as potent synergies for the shaker of worlds. Grumble could also be used to double down of Jade cards such as Jade Chieftain and Aya Blackpaw, or could even be used to recycle the Battlecry triggers of the old gods. All of this on a 7/7 for 6 mana? Sign me up!
      Is this the card that Elemental Shaman has been waiting for? Let us know what you think about Grumble in the comment section, and check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.

      The second of three Unidentified Magic Items to be revealed from Kobolds and Catacombs, will Unidentified Maul be a smashing success on the ladder?
      Kripparrian revealed the second of three Unidentified Magic Items in Kobolds and Catacombs today on his Twitter accounter, Unidentifed Maul:

      A Paladin Weapon, Unidentified Maul begins each game with an unknown effect and will become "identified" upon drawing the card from your deck. The weapon will always be a 3 mana 2/2, but will be randomly bestowed with one of the four following effects when drawn:

      A couple of the potential modes on this card are very enticing. Two Silver Hand Recruits and a 2/2 weapon for 3 mana is a screaming deal, and the other three modes offer some serious value if you're already ahead on board. Given that three of the four potential modes on Unidentified Maul aren't very good when you're behind, I doubt this card will slot in as an instant replacement for Rallying Blade. Unidentified Maul could end up seeing play in token-based strategies, as granting +1 Attack or Divine Shield to a wide board of minions drawn from Small-Time Recruits is nothing to shake a hammer at.
      Will the random nature of Unidentified Maul be its downfall, or will its synergies with token strategies enable it to see some play on the ladder? Let us know what you think in the comments, and be sure to check out our Kobolds and Catacombs hub for more information on the upcoming set.
