Patches the Pirate is a neutral minion. This card can be obtained from Mean Streets of Gadgetzan packs. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Patches the Pirate is an exceptional card with a unique effect. Patches the Pirate may seem underwhelming, but if you are able to play an early Pirate, a free 1/1 minion on the board can often provide enough Tempo to stay in control of the board for many turns. Additionally, the value of having a minion come into play straight from your deck cannot be understated, thinning your deck and increasing the overall consistency of your other draws.

2. Constructed Play

In Constructed, Patches the Pirate is an excellent card. It is an essential card for any deck that uses Pirates, providing a huge boost to early-game Tempo, enabling very aggressive starts.

3. Arena

In Arena, Patches the Pirate is a fairly weak card. Although it can be reasonable if you manage to pick up multiple Pirates in your draft, it is rare that Patches the Pirate is the correct choice, as most other Legendary choices will have a much more significant impact on the game.
