I'm dpsimi I've been playing aggro warrior since first getting Legend with it in season 4. You can seem my other lists. I've always play aggro Warrior until rank 5, but I've usually switched to reach Legend. Finally, Blizzard sent some cards our way so let's do this.

Thoughts on Standard:
What held this deck back previously was the sticky minions like Haunted Creeper and Piloted Shredder. These cards ruined our efficient trades with our weapons. Warriors also lost Death's Bite, which made Dread Corsair Free and served as an activator for Grommash Hellscream.

Thoughts on WotOg Cards:
Blackwater Pirate and Malkorok are too slow for Pirate Warrior.
Bloodsail Cultist has two requirements to activate, but the stats are solid
N'Zoth's First Mate is pretty useless outside of the first 3 turns similar to Cursed Blade so we'll only run 1.
Bloodhoof Brave is FANTASTIC. Usually will regain board control or get enough of a footing to get in some damage before our end game burst. Also serves as an activator for Battle Rage.
Ravaging Ghoul - is a Very versatile card. Solid 3/3 for 3. Activates Execute, Battle Rage, and clears a board of 1/1s.

Sir Finley Mrrgglton, N'Zoth's First Mate, Alexstrasza's Champion, Fiery War Axe, Faerie Dragon.
Heroic Strike- if you don't have any of the cards above.
Azure Drake - if you have Alexstrasza's Champion

Fight for board control through the early game. Hit their face once you have board. Frothing Berserker, Bloodhoof Brave, Kor'kron Elite should get in some damage, and finished them off with Arcanite Reaper and Mortal Strike. You should be winning around turn 8.
Tip: Count your damage. Set up for lethal 3-4 turns in advance. Know what your opponent can do and prepare for it. Plan ahead and don't waste your spells. Know your limits, your options, and your potential draws.

Cards to Consider:
Abusive Sergeant is powerful with our chargers
Blood To Ichor vs Mid-Range
Slam vs Control
Argent Horserider is a solid 3 drop makes the deck more aggressive
Dread Corsair for a tempo swing
Spellbreaker for Silence
Captain Greenskin for Upgrade! plus body

Cards to Replace:
Upgrade! requires a weapon.
x1 Mortal Strike is very weak draw early

Sir Finley Mrrgglton Picks:
Tier 1: Mage, Warlock, Hunter - each can be better than the other based on situation
Tier 2: Druid, Priest
Tier 3: Rogue, Shaman, Paladin

If you don't have Sir Finley Mrrgglton replace with Blood To Ichor

 I won't answer anything that is in the writeup
