The hunter legendary spell looks pathetic compared to this.
Not really, too many good pirates are Odd.
I think this is slightly too weak.
Yeah, normally I agree. I play in wild from time to time and I am aware of the odd rogue pirate deck there.
But I said it, because people have been speculating on an even rogue archtype since the expansion reveal video. And since I saw yet another even-cost pirate, I wanted to point this out. If rogue gets some 4 or 6 mana pirates, then on theory this card will be quite powerful.
none of the pirates we have seen benefit from rush if they are trading they are dying 90% of the time so is summoning the pirates the only thing this is good for? 8 mana 6/3 summon 3 easy to kill minions unless something changes I think this is pretty bad but I hope I am wrong.
maybe I am just salty I was hoping she would either summon her crewmates without drawing them from your deck or add them to your hand.
This card is one cost too much to make a Prep+Cannon Barrage happen. With that said, I don't think Rogue can use it without dying first or draw most of those pirates. I guarantee you that the only reason why she cost 8 cost is because Lab Recruiter is a thing.
It's a playable card much worse than i was expecting tbh... they need to print some great pirates to make this worth it. We'll see how good is the archtype i highly doubt it will happens before the rotations.
As a general rule, an 8-drop needs to win you the game a good amount of the time, especially in an aggressive archetype like pirates. I don't think this card does that. Pirates are generally quite small (like 3/3 or so) without their battlecries, so your 8 drop can probably be answered by a single mid sized AoE like Hellfire.
