       Senfglas made it to number 1 legend on EU from rank 10 in 3 days on stream. He was undefeated from rank 10 to 5. This deck is insanely good against priests and cubelocks. All you gotta do is SMOrc, because everybody knows that the face is the place.

        If you guys have any questions about the deck, mulligan's and replacement please ask in the comments section and leave an up vote as it greatly helps.

        As promised, here is the deck guide. Sorry to keep you guys waiting for a couple of days.

+10 upvotes= Mulligan guide

       The mulligan strategy in this deck is very simple: keep your one drops, except for patches and southsea deckhand; consider keeping southsea deckhand; keep crackling razormaw if you have a dire mole or an alleycat, otherwise only keep it if helps you curve out well; and always keep corridor creeper, only keep double corridor creeper if you go second or have a 1 drop or double 3 drop. NEVER SHOULD YOU EVER KEEP Patches the Pirate, Leeroy Jenkins OR Kill Command in your starting hands. Only time you keep Spellbreaker is if you have an insanely THICC curvy hand AND you are playing against control warlock. Only keep tundra rhino versus priests if you are on the coin and you have double corridor creeper. Only keep houndmaster with a good curve. Always try to get a good curve.

VS Druids:

Keep 1 drops like alleycat and diremole. Keep a corridor creeper, or two if you go second or have a good hand. Keep southsea captain and/or animal companion on coin or with a good hand. Keep crackling razormaw with a good curve. Keep Bittertide Hydra with a good hand or on the coin.

VS Hunters:

 You can keep any one drop if it seems fitting. Keep crackling razormaw with a good curve. Keep southsea captain and or animal companion on the coin or on a good curve. Keep a corridor creeper or two, with a good hand or on the curve.

VS Mages:

Keep alleycat and diremole. Keep crackling razormaw. Keep a single corridor creeper, or two if on the coin or with a good curve. Keep candleshot with southsea captain. Keep southsea captain, eaglehorn bow or animal companion on the coin or with a good curve. If you draw all 3 in mulligan with coin, only keep 2 (always eaglehorn, though, unless if its captain plus candleshot). 

VS Paladins:

Keep all one drops, except for patches and southsea deckhand. Only keep southsea deck hand with a good hand. Keep all corridor creepers. Keep 3 drops on coin, except for eaglehorn bow unless it's befitting your hand. 

VS Priests:

 Keep all one drops, except for candleshot unless you have a southsea deckhand. Keep one corridor creeper, or two with a good hand. Keep crackling razormaw. Keep double 3 drop on coin. Keep a bittertide hydra with a good hand or on the coin. Only keep tundra rhino if your on the coin and you have double corridor creeper.

VS Rogues:

Keep all one drops except for southsea deckhand. Keep double 3 drops on the coin. Keep a corridor creeper or two, with a good hand or on the coin.

VS Shamans:

Keep all one drops except for southsea deckhand. Keep double 3 drops on the coin. Keep a corridor creeper or two, with a good hand or the coin. Keep crackling razormaw with a good curve.

VS Warlocks:

Keep all one drops except for southsea deckhand, unless it curves out well. Keep crackling razormaw with a 1 drop. Keep double 3 drop on the coin. Keep spellbreaker only if you have an insane curve. Keep a corridor creeper or two, on the coin or with a good hand.

VS Warriors:

Keep all one drops except for candleshot and southsea deckhand, unless you have them together. Keep crackling razormaw. Keep double three drops on coin. Keep a corridor creeper or two, with a good hand or on the coin.

+20 upvotes= Matchups and replacements

      This deck is absolutely NUTS against control decks such as Cubelock and Highlander Priests and it crushes all priest archetypes. It struggles against aggressive decks, on the other end. However, if piloted efficiently, it can be great against tempo and semi-aggressive decks too!

     If you want to replace Leeroy Jenkins, I'd recommend a reckless racketeer because of they share a similar purpose. If you don't have patches, I'd cut 2x Southsea deckhand and 2x Southsea Captain with it, because the only reason pirates are played in all tempo/aggro/face decks is Patches. You can substitute the pirate package for 2x knife juggler, 2x unleash the hounds and 1x wolfrider. If you want to replace the Bittertide hydras, I'd recommend cutting 1x Tundra Rhino and 1x spellbreaker alongside it to be able to add 2x knife juggler and 2x unleash the hounds.

To perform better against aggro, you can remove 2x bittertide hydra, 1x spellbreaker and 1x tundra rhino for 2x knife juggler and 2x unleash the Hounds, but only at the cost of making your control match ups slightly worst. Some Highlander priests now run a single copy of greater healing potion in addition to the binding heal due to the sudden rise of face hunters once again, so you might have to manage your resources slightly more efficiently against them. 

      If you have any questions about the mulligans, matchups or anything about the deck feel free to ask away in the comments section. If you miss playing the good ol' Miracoli, Don't forget to check out my new top 50 legend miracle rogue list that absolutely crushes priests, druids and warlocks: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1018657-top-50-legend-miracle-rogue. Here is another cool variation on tempo rogue that Rage used to get Rank 1 Legend: http://www.hearthpwn.com/decks/1021439-rank-1-legend-rages-tempo-rogue . Be sure to check these decks out, as they are great against the current meta and good for laddering.

Special thanks to KadakHS, Kiwiinbacon and games4dayz for making videos of the deck doing what its meant to do!
