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.

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.

      This week's Tavern Brawl is a great way to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood.
       
      Looking for a chance to try out some of the new cards from The Witchwood? This week's Brawl, titled "A Witchy Recipe", features preconstructed decks for each class which are built around some of the less-played cards from the new expansion, including many of the new Legendary minions from the set.
      Here are the names of some of the new cards you can try for yourself in A Witchy Recipe:
      Druid: Hand-size with Witchwood Apple, Ferocious Howl, and Wispering Woods. Hunter: Midrange Dragon/Poison with Carrion Drake, Vilebrood Skitterer, and Emeriss. Mage: Elemental Minions with Book of Specters, Archmage Arugal, and Bonfire Elemental. Paladin: Even Paladin with The Glass Knight and Genn Greymane. Note: If you're looking for a quick win, this deck feels like the most powerful of the bunch. Priest: Odd Priest with Chameleos, Glitter Moth, and Nightscale Matriarch. Rogue: Echo/Burgle with Pick Pocket, Tess Greymane, and Face Collector. Shaman: Battlecry Shaman with Blazing Invocation, Zap!, and Hagatha the Witch. Warrior: Rush with Darius Crowley, Town Crier, and Woodcutter's Axe. Warlock: Self-damage with Blood Witch, Deathweb Spider. and Glinda Crowskin. As usual, the reward for A Witchy Recipe is one pack of Classic.

      The team has finally responded to the community's concerns on the new Shaman legendary minion.
      Two weeks after The Witchwood's release, Team 5 has addressed the issues surrounding Shudderwock. Its animation will go faster and it will cap at 20 Battlecries. Hopefully, it will be less of a nuisance now. Lifedrinker will also receive a bump on its animation speed.
      I assume the fix will go live on April 26 along with the Monster Hunt.
      Jesse Hill
      Recently, our players have had feedback regarding the Shaman card, Shudderwock. We understand that the length of its Battlecry animation and other animations spawned from its Battlecry can be frustrating. In a future update, we will be doubling the animation speed of Shudderwock’s Battlecry so it will lessen the impact on the overall pacing of your current Hearthstone match. In addition, the amount of Battlecries Shudderwock can reproduce will be capped at 20.
      We will also be speeding up the animation of Lifedrinker for similar reasons.
      Thank you for your feedback, and we’ll see you in the Tavern.
      Cheers!

      The rewards are different for each rank. You receive the chest for the best rank you achieve, so do not be afraid of dropping a rank. Additionally, after reaching a milestone rank (ranks in bold), you will not fall below them that season again. This means that if you lose a game at rank 15 with 0 stars, you will not drop to rank 16, but rather stay at rank 15 with no stars.
      Rank Reward 25-21 None 20 1 golden common, 5 dust 19 1 golden common, 10 dust 18 1 golden common, 15 dust 17 1 golden common, 20 dust 16 1 golden common, 25 dust 15 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 14 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 13 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 12 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 11 1 golden common, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 10 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 5 dust 9 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 10 dust 8 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 15 dust 7 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 20 dust 6 2 golden commons, 1 golden rare, 25 dust 5 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 5 dust 4 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 10 dust 3 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 15 dust 2 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 20 dust 1 2 golden commons, 1 golden epic, 25 dust Legend 3 golden commons, 1 golden epic You also receive a card back for winning 5 games during the season.
