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?

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.

      A new Tavern Brawl has been introduced this week by Ahune the Frost Lord himself.
      In this Brawl, you will play as either Uther or Jaina. They both have premade decks and Uther is reportedly slightly better than Jaina, which is interesting since Mage usually dominates in Tavern Brawls.
      Here is Uther's deck:
      Jaina uses a Reno deck, minus the Reno:
      Both heroes are immune to damage and they cannot be healed nor keep armor. The only way to damage them is by killing the Ragnaros? minions. These are 1/4 minions and there is one of them at each side of the board. They cannot attack and upon death they deal 4 damage to the opponent of the current player. This means that you can kill both minions (the one on your side and the one on your opponent's side) and your opponent will take all the damage. Moreover, once a Ragnaros? dies, a new one will appear thus making it possible to kill multiple of them in one turn.

      Some tips you should know:
      If the game reaches the fatigue stage, in the next round the enemy that has the least amount of health will automatically die and their opponent will be crowned as the winner. At the moment, Ice Block and Eye for an Eye seem to be bugged and they are not working as intended. This will be fixed soon. Bomb Squad and Ancient Curse deal no actual damage to you, so don't be afraid! This is the 110th Brawl and it's part of the Frost Festival. If you want to find out more about the Frost Festival, check our main article on it.

      As Ragnaros' Midsummer Fire Festival has ended, it is time for Ahune the Frost Lord to take over with the Frost Festival! 
      As we explained in our previous post, this is a holiday that celebrates Arena mode. Once you log in the game, you will see that Ahune is giving you a free Arena ticket for this week. This will happen for the entire duration of the festival, so in total you will get three free Arena keys.
      You will also get a free win each time you start an Arena run, whether it's from a free or a purchsed entrance key.
      You will also get a quest to play three Arena games. This weekly quest awards you with a Knights of the Frozen Throne card pack. Once again, you will receive this quest next week and the week after that accounting for a total of three Knights of the Frozen Throne packs (assuming you complete the quests).

      Feel free to check out our Arena guides and card rankings before you step into the Arena!
      As far as the themed Tavern Brawl called Ahune's Superior Brawl is concerned, you can read more about it here.
      The Frost Festival has created speculation for the next expansion. Since it will run for three weeks, it is going to end on August 9. The day after that, August 10, is thought by many to be the date that Knight of the Frozen Throne will be released.

      Well, after the failed interview with Ben Brode and his dreams of being a Hearthstone developer squashed, the Lord of the Scourge decided to prove himself an accomplished entrepreneur and take what he's naturally good at - making ice - and adding cream. And so, behold the new ICC, Arthas' latest wondrous edifice: the Ice Cream Citadel.
      Of course, true to form, Blizzard took this little in-joke all the way and will have the Ice Cream Citadel, an actual ice cream shop, at the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con®, featuring two flavors: Villain-illa and Scourgeberry Sorbet.

      Greetings, mortal whelps!
      As part of my efforts to prove to the accursed Brode that I possess the necessary experience to command the Hearthstone development team, I have decided to expand my efforts to all aspects of mortal enterprise.
      At first I considered peddling power and vengeance, but according to my focus testing, the foremost human craving seems to be for cold, creamy, sweetened sludge. I have decided to create a frozen-cream sugar-ooze unlike any you have ever tasted. You will desire it.
      Prepare yourselves for the grand opening of Ice Cream Citadel, a fortress of refreshment in the scorching heat that afflicts this place. I will be on hand to personally help you conquer the heat with free ice cream. You need spend no money for your first taste of my power.
      Choose from an endless selection of TWO flavors:

      Behold my tasteful brochure:

      Attend the Petco Park Interactive Zone in San Diego near San Diego Comic-Con® and be guided to your just desserts by this map:

      You may also take photographs of me with no immediate fear of retribution. Share proof of your delicious ice cream conquests on social media using the #icecreamcitadel “hashtag,” whatever that means.
      Begin preparations for your journey now. Ice Cream Citadel will receive supplicants between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 9:00 p.m. PDT July 20 through July 22, and 9:00 am to 5:00 pm PDT on July 23.
