I think the current ratings for this card are probably a bit over the top - at least in constructed anyway. I suspect it will we too hard to keep the thing alive to actually get more than 1 token out of it.
Interesting card though, with interesting flavour and excellent art. Good start to the reveal season.
Seems good. Rogues typically have a dagger up most of the time, so it's at least 3/3 worth of stats with the threat of making another 1/1 each turn, plus there is the pirate synergy. Turn 1 coin + dagger into this into Southsea Captain is a pretty brutal opener.
yeah i'm pretty sure this will be annoying with n'zoth¡s first mate in pirate warrior, basicallly it just went from the face deck to the goblin spam deck, still since warrior doesn't have access to Mark of the Lotus the deck will b far from op

Big priest was never a problem until Lesser Diamond Spellstonegot printed, and this spellstone breaks way too many decks asides from big priest, basically compare it to gallery and you can see that spellstone should cost more than gallery, barnes isn't a problem in any other deck, spellstone tho, spellstone is a problem in many different priest decks both in standard and wild.
It'll only really fit into even rogue or pirate rogue. The latter has never been good, but might be with a little support, at least in wild, and the former is actually potentially meta-defining as it's a great counter to paladin.
Even rogue is pretty good in wild ngl. I hit legend with an even, miracle, pirate package.
In your optimal pirate deck, like pirate warrior, you always have a weapon equipped, so this card just has 2 mana 3/3 value. Southsea Captain plus a weapon on the board can make this a 2 mana 5/5. Super value. And it’s a 2-drop; in a world where there’s not many good 2 mana pirates, let alone 2-mana cards in general, this is a card worth being excited about.
