UPDATED 21/08 - I having sucess with Knife Juggler / Plague Scientist in the list, Knife Juggler is kinda like Ship's Cannon and the deck lacks another solid 2 drop, I found Plague Scientist more versatile than Spellbreaker .
UPDATED 20/08 - I made some changes to improve the deck, Luckydo Buccaneer is so greedy and hard countered it was necessary.
CONCLUSION: Pirate Rogue is in Tier 3 right now according to TempoStorm and would be MUCH better if it had Small-Time Buccaneer without being nerf if Pirate Warrior and Shaman was the problem so make it Rogue class card... i can not understand, the deck clearly lacks an explosive opening and this card was going to solve this.
As most of you guys already know I play since the beta with decks made by myself (18x legend and have more than 9k wins with Rogue class http://imgur.com/a/4S91n) I was trying out my last Pirate Rogue version and was not working for some reasons so decide to cut Leeroy Jenkins + Shadowstep combo, Edwin VanCleef for 2x Shadowblade and 1x Runeforge Haunter believe or not the results appeared immediately this cards are really helpful! I made 31 - 14 from Rank 5 to 2 on the first day of the expansion. On the second day I started to struggle as I had never experienced before, it was only Druid / Priest and some Paladins. I think this was one of the most intense Legend I've ever made (156 games from Rank 5 to Legend , 3 Final bosses) problably because the list was not well refined too. I'm very addicted and have mastered this for a couple seasons. Make it to the Legend Rank again is so unique I have no words to describe the feeling, anyways, Here are my stats / Match-ups :
At least I was not farmed by the Druid infestation lol
Mulligan you mainly search for ----> Backstab, Deadly Poison, Southsea Deckhand , Swashburglar, Bloodsail Raider and Knife Juggler, with coin you can keep SI:7 Agent or Shadowblade , Dread Corsair with Deadly Poison.
I hope everyone is having a blast as I am in this new expansion! Feel free to leave a comment or make any question.
+1 Would be much appreciated. GL&HF!
