Table of Contents

Swashburglar is a Rogue-only minion. This card can be obtained in the One Night in Karazhan solo adventure. Below the card images, you will find explanations to help you use the card optimally in every game mode of Hearthstone.

1. General Comments

Swashburglar has multiple uses in Rogue. Having a card to play on Turn 1 is always useful, and the fact that it replaces itself is convenient, as Rogue often struggles to keep its hand size up. Being a 1-drop minion means that it is easy to use alongside cards that use Combo, such as Vilespine Slayer. It is also a pirate, which means that it has great synergy with Patches the Pirate, and can therefore be used in decks that contain a pirate package.

2. Constructed Play

Swashburglar is a very powerful card in Constructed play. Due to the low casting cost, it fits in well with the Rogue Combo effect. When coupled with Patches the Pirate, it can lead to a very fast start for the Rogue without losing a card from hand. It is powerful enough to be in decks without other pirates, as the early board presence ties in with cards such as Backstab to rapidly generate a large board.

3. Arena

Swashburglar is a good card in Arena. It occupies the board on Turn 1 and replaces itself in your hand. It will often combine with your Hero Power to take down an opposing 3/2 at the cost of no cards.
