Paragraph 3.3 refers to Lotus Assassin, while the card in the deck is a Lotus Agents. You might want to ask Sottle which one of the two is correct.

While this deck is very good, I'm not so sure if it's actually favored against pirate warrior. The main difficulty I'm running into is the turn one interaction between the one drops of each deck. Since all your turn one pirates aside from small time buccaneer are one hp, if the warrior plays n'zoth's first mate he can just kill your one drop and your patches with his weapon and his own patches, leaving him with a 1/1 and a weapon equipped. This small amount of tempo gain can actually be enough to lose a game between two decks this aggressive. If you get small-time buccaneer, it's all good, but they can also get it and wreck you so it evens out. Overall, pretty dumb and coin flippy match up, but I would say the warrior has a slight advantage.

Still, I climbed from rank 12 to 8 with relative ease, and considering this is the beginning of the season and i'm facing people who are usually at legend, I can't complain about the overall results.

This deck has done quite well for me so far, 16-5 going from rank 18 to 12 on NA, one loss to shaman, paladin and pirate warrior. Because I rarely seemed to get a good chance to play them I swapped the defenders for 1x Twisted Worgen and 1x Shadow Sensei about ten games in.

I recommend the following changes:

Cut out:
- 1x Lotus Agents (too slow)
- 2x Shadow Rager (too slow / often taken out by 1 damage AoEs like Fan of Knifes or Whirlwind / no synergies / often "only" do 5 damage and will then be taken out while other minions provide repetitive damage)

Put in:
- 2x Southsea Captain (huge pirate synergy / useful to boost damage / providing the advantage needed in the early game against other aggro decks)
- 1x Sap (very useful to remove taunts, something this deck otherwise couldn't deal with)

I'm playing this deck (with the recommended changes) on the Asian servers. Huge success; climbing the ranks like crazy, currently playing on 5. However, I don't see many pirate warriors on the Asian servers atm, so I am not sure how this deck does in a more aggressive meta. I am also thinking about cutting one SI:7 or one Horserider for a second Sap, as the more control-oriented decks play lots of taunts these days.

Is it Lotus Assassin o Lotus Agents?

Any great swaps for both Shaku and Xaril? I have none of them atm, but I hope they can be changed for something "similar" :) Ideas are welcome :D

Would small time buccaneer be better than buccaneer? also is there reason to not play southsea captainb?

If you play Small-Time Buccaneer on turn 1, it is a 1/1, so if your opponent plays a 2-drop minion, you are forced to dagger up if you want to get some value out of the Small-Time Buccaneer, whereas Buccaneer can trade into any 3/2 by himself, and into any 2/3 with Patches the Pirate. During mid and late game, Buccaneer provides guaranteed damage, which can sometimes end up being lethal if you are missing the last point of damage. Small-Time Buccaneer can occasionally be superior in mid game, though that depends on the matchup. 

If you are talking about the full budget version, Southsea Captain is not included because there isn't really much space for it. You can however swap it in for SI:7 Agent. If you are talking about the budget version, that's because it would make the deck too expensive and it goes against the rule of no epics and legendaries.

should i swap one agent for one captain or both?

Having only one of each lowers the consistency of the deck. Try adding 2 Southsea Captains. If it does not work out, remove one. If not even the one works, revert to the original build.

Both Keleseth and Eviscerates? Is that a typo?

And how necessary are Shaku & Sonya? Possible replacements for them, or at least for shaku? Bonemares/fledglings perhaps in place of them or eviscerates?

Hey, I'm unable to find where exactly it is. Can you please specify where you found this?

They are very strong, but not crucial. Bonemares and Eviscerates sound fine, but make sure to re-evaluate after a few games to see if they are truly working out for you.

I think he/she was referring to this deck Tempo Rogue Deck.

In the guide there at the end of "3.1.2. Evaluating Your Outs and Setting Up Lethal": For example, if you have Charge minions in hand, you should play these first to be able to get the damage through before a Taunt comes down, and then follow up with damage like Eviscerate and SI:7 Agent that can ignore Taunt.

It's just a general "How to play tempo rogue" but somehow confusing when the deck above the guide doesn't have the card mentioned :)

Oh, I was looking for parts that talked about Eviscerates in context with Prince Keleseth. While I did notice this part, I was not sure whether this is what they were referring to, as it does not talk about Prince Keleseth, and the Eviscerates are not contained in the deck (I added removal of that mention onto the to-do list).

Minor editorial issue. For the Odd Aggro Rogue, the section labeled "Card Swaps" is actually a "Mulligan" section.

      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!

      The details for this year's Hallow's End festivities have been revealed.
      As already known from update 12.2, Hallow's End will return from October 17 until October 31. During that time, upon logging in you will receive a free Golden Witch's Cauldron and a free Arena ticket.
      You can use that ticket to enter the Dual Class Arena event. You will choose a Hero, then the Hero Power of another Hero and you will make a deck consisting of both Heroes' class cards and neutral cards. If you have an Arena run in progress when Hallow’s End begins on October 17, then it will be retired and you’ll receive the normal rewards for the number of wins you achieved and a free Arena ticket.
      We'll have two Tavern Brawls during Hallow's end. During the first week (October 17-22), there will be a new Tavern Brawl called Monster Smash. You will get randomly assigned one of six Monster Hunt villains with a premade deck. The other Tavern Brawl (October 24-29) is the one we saw last year as well, The Headless Horseman Rides Again!
      Lastly, the new Paladin Hero, Sir Annoy-o, will be available as a bundle along with 20 Witchwood card packs. The pricing of the bundle is still unknown.

      When you start an Arena run during Hallow’s End, you’ll choose a Hero, then a Hero Power, and the cards offered in your picks will feature cards from BOTH of those classes, in addition to neutral cards. And don’t forget, you’ll get a free Arena ticket just for logging in, so there’s no excuse not to attend the party!

      Hallow! Hallow! Bundle
      While the creatures of the Witchwood stir, and townsfolk cower during the fearful fun of Hallow’s End, Sir Annoy-o remains ever undaunted! He doesn’t even know what a daunt is! Say HELLO! HELLO! HELLO! to the new Paladin Hero and add 20 The Witchwood card packs to your collection when you buy the Hallow! Hallow! Bundle.

In the hours just before the beginning and conclusion of Hallow’s End on October 17 and October 31, the ability to purchase a new Arena ticket will be temporarily disabled.
