Why Patches? Wouldn't the bloodsail cultist be more synergistic? 

Patches would have been great if it had deathrattle of either draw a pirate or put patches back in your deck .. Waiting for Pirate Warrior and Pirate rogue deck lists ..

I think it's essentially because it starts of the game with a fairly solid presence. If you look at most turn 1 minions, playing N'zoth's (for example), would mean 2 1/1s and a 1/3 weapon on Turn 1. 

You can probably trade away nicely with their 1 drop and ensure you're ahead on tempo.

Is there a reason there are no removal cards in the deck, apart from a 5 drop 3 damage in Darkwing Corruptor?  Is the point to trade with weapons?  I'm thinking specifically of Execute, and using it against stronger taunt minions.

Yes, you trade with weapons, but you also have one Ravaging Ghoul. Aggro decks don't need to clear as much, as your opponent should be the one clearing the board. Look at the new pirate warrior - it has no AoEs and yet is considered to be currently the best aggro deck in standard.

If you feel underperforming without the Execute, your tech slots are both Arathi Weaponsmiths and the Ravaging Ghoul.

You can play a wide variety of options here, the most common being Blood To Ichor #1/2 - very good against any Aggro, but pretty much only when going seconds - or Arcanite Reaper for increased HOOOOO!!! potential. Execute slots in there as well. Ghoul I feel to be way too good atm to be dropped.

Any replacements for patches

You can try Ravaging Ghoul, but your early game against control decks will be much worse.

      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      Hi everyone! I would like to update you on my new role as a Hearthstone guide writer.
      As some of you will know, I've been writing news here at Icy-Veins for over a year. A lot has changed in that year, both personally, and within Hearthstone. I switched from Arena to Constructed with the introduction of Standard, and have started to cast quite a few large events.
      With those things in mind, I've been let loose on writing guides. I won't be touching Sottle's high level content, but instead will be focussing on keep your old decks fresh. I will be updating decks which have dropped out of the meta, and making them playable to somewhere in the region of Rank Five. They will be weaker than the meta decks, but if you have played the older versions you will probably find that you already own many of the cards, and experience, required to play them.
      Hopefully this will fill a gap for some of you. I'll be a little busy for the first few weeks as I get the hang of things and concentrate on producing quality content, but feel free to let me know if there's an archetype you feel has been left out.
