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 =)

      Aleco walks through a series of simple early-game decisions while playing an Unstable Evolution deck.
      "Simple early game decisions" and "multi-turn decisions" are the two most common requests I've been receiving since the start of this series, so I decided to do an episode that tackles both! In today's episode I navigate a series of relatively simple early-game decisions against an aggressive Hunter start with my Unstable Evolution Shaman deck.
      If you have any requests for future episodes of "What's the Move?", please feel free to reach out to me here on Icy Veins or via Twitter @Aleco_P. I prefer to always fulfill requests for new episodes if possible, and always love hearing feedback from the community which can help me improve on this series in the future. Don't be shy!
      If you're looking for the guide I referenced in this video, please follow this link to "Legend in the Making: Part 2".

      Choose your champion for the upcoming Hearthstone World Championships to win free K&C packs!
      The biggest Hearthstone tournament of the year, the Hearthstone World Championship, is just around the corner! To help build up excitement for the tournament, players may now select a champion from among the 16 world championship competitors. Each round your champion advances in the tournament will reward you with more Kobolds & Catacombs packs. You can win up to 6 packs of K&C for selecting the winner of the tournament, so choose wisely! Once you've locked in your choice it can not be changed.
      Anyone with a Battle.net account can select a champion for free until midnight on January 17th (Pacific Standard Time), and there's no downside to selecting the wrong champion. All you need to do is follow this link and select one of the 16 competitors. Personally, I'm sticking with Purple because he won me 3 packs at the Summer Championship and appears to be the favorite to win his group. Kolento and Surrender are two of the favorites to win the tournament, which would make them safe bets to win you some packs as well.

      After a couple of repeats, this is 2018's first new Tavern Brawl.
      This is a constructed Brawl, with the novelty that you can build a deck of any size. The rest of the cards will be Shadow Reflections, which is normally generated by the passive Hero Power of the Rogue Death Knight Valeera the Hollow. It should be noted that when you play second, you don't get the coin; you draw an extra card instead.
      Obviously, you don't want to make a deck of 30 cards, since you will have no Shadow Reflections (although people have had success even like this). However, you also don't want to make a deck of only 1-3 cards, given that the Reflections take actual spots in the deck and it will be hard drawing the cards you picked.
      By doing a quick research, it seems that Aggro Paladin and Aggro Druid are good picks. As is usually the case when some good decks surface, their counters are also created: in this case, it's Mage with Ice Lance and Combo Priest. Moreover, Quest Rogue has managed to make a surprise re-appearance from the dead in this Brawl. Lastly, a hilarious deck is the Hunter one with Mechwarper and Metaltooth Leaper.
      Good luck!
