Intro:

This deck got me from rank 10 - 5 with only two losses. I didn't use a Decktracker because I was constantly making adjustments as I was climbing. It has beaten Cubelock, Genn and Baku Aggro Paladin, Aggro Shaman, Shudderwock Shaman, and I encountered a few rogues who conceded by turn 4.

Guide:

This deck utilizes Baku the Mooneater's effect so your hero power deals 3 damage every time you use it. It might not seem like much, but the extra 3 - 4 damage from your hero power can be game-deciding in the end. The way to play this deck is:

Turn 1: 1 drop, or two 1 drops if coin

Turn 2: Two 1 drops or coin 3 drop (if you have another turn 3 play)

Turn 3: 3 drop or 1 drop + hero power, if you don't have a 3 drop

Turn 4: 3 drop + 1 drop or two 1 drops + hero power

Only trade if it's extremely favorable, and after turn 4, only go FACE

You generally lose board after turn 4, but the opponent is down to less than half their health by then, so you can finish them down with your hero power and burn. The game usually finishes by max turn 7.

I included only one 5 mana card (Leeroy Jenkins) because I found that at turn 5 you always want to play one card and hero power instead of playing an actual minion, since you want to keep pressuring your opponent, and your minion usually gets cleared anyways. If you don't have him, you can replace him with a Wolfrider

Mulligan:

You want to mulligan your entire hand for 1 drops. Fire FlyArgent Squire > Dire Mole > All other one drops. Never keep Tracking or Hunter's Mark in your opening hand.

Against other aggressive decks like paladin, you can keep Candleshot or Unleash the Hounds

Techs:

I run two Ironbeak Owls because of all the taunts I've been seeing. 

I run one Tracking to find that extra damage you sometimes need when you run out of steam after turn 5

2 copies of Unleash the Hounds because I ran into a bunch of Paladins and Aggro Shamans in ladder

My favorite tech card is Blackwald Pixie, which you can play on turn 7 to pretty much fireball face for that finishing blow

NOTE:

This deck is still constantly evolving, as I've only played with it for a few hours. I will post any edits below. 

The only hard counter I've encountered to this deck are variants of Baku Warrior, but they're pretty rare on ladder

EDITS:

 It seems like Glacial Shard, Tar Creeper, and Hunter's Mark have been underperforming for me. I took them out and put in the charge package with one more Candleshot, and two Southsea Deckhands
