General Comments

Phantom Freebooter is a powerful Pirate minion that gains a significant boost in strength if you have a weapon in play. As weapons usually have much more Attack than Durability, the Battlecry will mostly boost the Attack of the minion, in a similar way to Bloodsail Raider.


Constructed Play

In Constructed, Phantom Freebooter is a solid choice for a Pirate-themed deck. However, it is a relatively slow card compared to other Pirates and offers a very similar amount of value to Naga Corsair, which compete for the same spot as a 4-Cost minion.



In Arena, Phantom Freebooter is a weak card. It is very hard to guarantee a draft with enough weapons, which will result in a 4-Mana 3/3 minion most of the time. The card offers slightly more value for Rogue, as the Rogue Hero Power provides a consistent weapon for the Battlecry effect, however the resulting 4-Mana 4/4 minion is still below average.
