3. Comments On The Variation

This variant follows the same overall strategy as other Aggro Rogue decks, aiming to quickly seize control of the board in order to quickly rush down opponents with the aid of many efficient sources of damage from hand. The emphasis on Pirates in this variant requires slightly more consideration for board control in order to get maximum value from the additional Pirates.

3.1. Pros and Cons

This version is able to create a slightly stronger board presence due to the additional Pirates in the deck, enabling more repetitive damage than other Aggro Rogue decks. Conversely, the additional board presence also means that there is slightly less direct damage available in the deck, due to less slots available for Charge and Stealth minions in addition to many Pirates being dead cards if board control is lost in the late-game.

3.2. Card Swaps

Barnes can be cut from the deck in favour of Genzo, the Shark which can help you refill your hand effectively. Barnes is a very effective tool in this deck however, since even the bad outcomes like Swashburglar, SI:7 Agent, and Edwin VanCleef can be returned to your hand with Shadowstep in order to get value.
