3. Comments On The Variation

This variant aims to develop longer-lasting board positions to able to get more repetitive damage onto opponents. Phantom Freebooter is a flexible minion that can have its stats tailored based on the state of the game. It can be used in combination with Arcanite Reaper or Fiery War Axe for a huge boost in Attack value or it can be used with the weapon from N'Zoth's First Mate to make it harder to remove. Bittertide Hydra is also included to provide a huge boost to board presence in the mid-game and to take advantage of the early tempo leads Pirate Warrior is consistently capable of.

4. Pros and Cons

The extra board presence makes this variant stronger in longer games against decks that have a decent amount of healing. However, this approach also creates and additional vulnerability to board clear effect.
