This deck is complete cancer. It is more aggressive than the OG Undertaker Hunter. It is the epitome of what is wrong with hearthstone.  

 

With that said, I'm cruising up the ladder with this deck. Hey, if you can't beat 'em, join 'me.

I remember the days when I just couldnt climb without making a damn face hunter or secret pala, the game is always broken theres just changes in what decks are broken each expansion/adventure

I went from 19 to 14 last night with no losses using this exact list.  My last game was a turn 5 win against a mage and I had 11 extra damage sitting on the board after her life hit 0.

That is the cancer that is Pirate warrior. :P

Love this deck and learning a lot but I am having trouble with shaman decks. Any card swaps that could possibly help when facing them since it seems to be every other game.

Appreciate the help

Not really, if you do not open well against shaman, you most likely lose. If they get control of the board with high enough hp, the game is most of the times over.

Now if you tech against shaman, you weaken your other matchups. Only think i would probably do, would be adding an Acidic Swamp Ooze for a Heroic Strike, Helps the aggro mirrors, and against shaman. But even this weakens your dmg output a bit.

In order to beat shamans more consistently you could try Hybrid dragon warrior

I'd swap the Argent Horserider instead, especially if it's Shaman you have trouble with. Fiery War Axe + Heroic Strike is often the only way to deal with an early Mr. 7/7 for 4 mana without having to sacrifice your whole board to stop his rampage. (Not that eating 7 face damage is an attractive option, but Pirate Warrior coasts on "YOLO!" fumes quite often.)

@WedgeAntilles

Gorehowl can replace Leeroy as a finishing move just fine. As for the other two replace them with bloodsail corsair x2. This also removes the need for a slime as most weapons start at 2 and they remove 1 durability. At this point you can keep in 1 Argent horseman or as I prefer to do include 1 more weapon Brass Knuckles. It almost eliminates hands with no weapons, but you end up with the reverse more often, but I would rather have to many weapons then to few... This is about as budget as you can do with this deck. Im not saying its better just cheaper and very nearly as effective.

why is Southsea Captain not part of this deck? would that not be more viable than, let's say... 1 heroic strike? 

Heroic Strike can be used as finisher, but also as spot removal; using your life total as yet another spendable resource in order to punch through. 

Southsea Captain is only useful if you have other pirates on the board, hence only when you are already ahead. Even if it would make your board marginally more resistant to a boardclear, it is in the end but a 'win-more' card.

Fair enough, I see your point here - I haven't put that many games into the build yet (just to say that it's crazy and so far wins extremely easily - with that being said, i haven't played ladder in a long time so i've been facing really easy decks so far, i'm sure it'll be much tougher up the ladder) 

Just thought the extra push in the early game could possible finish it off earlier before board clears and such become an issue - so my thought process was that that would be more viable than a single finisher. 

 

Might give it a go - because so far heroic strike has been a fairly dead card in my hand, but again - i've been facing really easy decks

The way I see it, Heroic Strike gives you a guaranteed 4 damage to something for 2 mana. Southsea Captain costs 3 mana and there would have to be 4 pirates on board when you drop him to get 4 guaranteed damage off of him.

Pirate warriors excel at doing burst damage very quickly and cheaply, often sealing games before turn 7. the epic captain seems better in somewhat more slow pirate builds. (I don't think those exist atm.)

Southsea captain is used mostly by rogues .. I don't play argent horse or Leeroy (don't have him) instead I use 2  Naga Corsair and  replaced 1 mortal strike for 1 slam and 1 upgrade for 1 slam .. Thinking of using  crazed alchemist for Doomsayer ..

Slams are too control as they cannot go face. You want to kill your opponent before you run out of cards, so the draw is not as important as in control warrior. The cards you removed have quite high damage output and should not be removed.

This deck is in the top 3. How is this measured?
Is it the winrate that Sottle or his teammates has with the deck? Or is it the amout of comments the deck received?
I'm curious of what it means to be a deck in the top 3.

It's decided by views the deck gets - it's pretty much the top 3 most popular guides on our site.

Tech replacements: - 1 argent horserider, - 2 froathing berserker / +1 acidic swamp ooze, +1 crazed alchemist, +1 iron break owl. You can use any combination of these cards 

Budget replacements: - 1 leeroy jenkins, - 1 patches the pirate, - 1 sir finley mrgglton / +1 reckless rocketeer, +1 abusive sergeant, +1 argent squire. To be honest finley is little irreplaceble

Have a good day =)

      This Mage Legendary card was revealed in collaboration with Wronchi!
      If you remember from the expansion announcement video, Hearthstone's developers were sucked into Netherstorm and it's up to Levi the intern to rescue them! As he ventures into Boom Labs, he encounters Stargazer Luna.
      The video was made by Wronchi Animations, who have created many beloved and hilarious Hearthstone cartoons. There's probably going to be a second part, so expect more card reveals!
      Now, let's talk about the card itself.

      With a Netherstorm expansion, one would expect that the magnificent Kael'thas would have been the Mage Legendary. Instead, we get Stargazer Luna which is a very interesting card with a decent statline. She can complement perfectly Aggro/Burn Mage, but you could perhaps find her in Minion-based Mage decks: mostly Murloc Mage, but maybe Elemental Mage as well. She has potentially better tempo than Aluneth, but is more risky. You obviously don't want to play her on turn 3. Let the topdeck wars begin!
      The reveal schedule is unclear at the moment, but it should go as with previous expansions: an initial reveal livestream on July 23, followed by roughly two weeks of card reveals by community sites and personalities, then a final stream before The Boomsday Project releases on August 7.

      Title says it all
      I'm working on migrating form doomhammer to realms where aome friends have characters (for guild stuff further down the line)
      So i'm making some new characters and iv'e decided that until i know more about the unlocking of the mag'har orcs that my horde main will be a warrior.
      My issue is that i cant decide between an orc or a pandaren. Because they both have a racial ability that works well for a warrior.
      I'm hoping somebody could give me a little a little advice on which would be the best choice.

      New features include Legendary spells, the Magnetic keyword, Omega cards and Project spells.
      The second expansion of the Year of the Raven was indeed related to Netherstorm, home of the unforgettable Dr. Boom, and it's called the Boomsday Project. Apart from the new features, five cards were also revealed.
      The announcement video has an appropriate 80s science fiction movie vibe, featuring notable faces from the Hearthstone team.
      It's Goblins vs Gnomes 2.0 as the Mech tribe is definitely going to return with a vengeance! There's a new keyword called Magnetic: Magnetic minions can either be played on their own or they can be fused with a Mech minion that's on the board to add to their health, attack and ability.

      Omega cards can also be played regularly. However, if you play them at 10 Mana Crystals, you will get a powerful boost. The Battlecry assures that the OP version cannot be cheated out. Druid, the only class that can ramp its Mana up, will surely find a use for this type of minion. Curiously enough, the Omega Defender isn't a Mech, even though it definitely looks like one.

      Projects are powerful spells, that will benefit both players. Assumedly, all classes will have a Project spell. "Research" and "Weapons" Projects were teased, with the latter probably belonging to Warrior.

      We've seen all kinds of Legendary cards: minions, Quests, Weapons, Hero cards. Now it's time for Legendary Spells to make their appearance. I wonder if there are any special rules when it comes to Discovering or playing discounted versions of Legendary Spells, because they can potentially be powerful. Here's the Rogue one:

      That's all with the new features, but don't forget: The Boomsday Project isn't all about mechs and projects. It's also about science, crazy discoveries and the manipulation of elements. Under this thematic, we can find the Shaman Legendary minion:

      It's almost certain that Dr. Boom will be making a grand return for this Hearthstone Expansion; after all, he's the big boss on The Boomsday Project. He was shortly teased in the announcement video: unfortunately, this time around not all classes will be able to enjoy the Dr. Boom goodness as he looks like a Warrior card. Lord Jaraxxus will also reinvent himself as a new Warlock Hero skin: Mecha-Jaraxxus!

      According to the official announcement post, the new expansion will go live on August 7, 2018 - a week earlier than August expansions from previous years. The official site of The Boomsday Project is also up!
      The Boomsday Project will also bring along new PvE Adventure content: The Puzzle Lab! It will go live on August 21 and from the description on the official site, it looks slightly different from the Dungeon Run and the Missions. Players will have to participate in successful experiments against nine bosses. These include goals like "Lethal", which is kill the enemy in one turn; Mirror, which requires you to create a perfect copy of your opponent's board; Board Clear; and Survival, which requires you stay alive from the opponent's attacks! You will earn the following card back for completing The Puzzle Lab:

      Here is the new Boomsday board:

      The login launch reward for The Boomsday Project will be three packs and a random Class Legendary card. A card reveal livestream will be held on July 23 at 10:00 am PST on the official Hearthstone Twitch channel.
      Pre-ordering The Boomsday Project has some additional perks compared to other expansions and two different options. You can preorder the normal Bundle which will contain 50 The Boomsday Project packs, a random Golden Legendary card from the expansion and the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back. Or you can get the Mega Bundle, which contains 80 packs, a random Golden Legendary, the Mecha-Jaraxxus card back and the Mecha-Jaraxxus Warlock Hero skin.
