I feel you. I unpacked a golden Hobart Grapplehammer and most deck types just crush pirate warrior. Between all the new taunts and heals he may only be viable in an armor based control deck that has a few weapons in it, and even then it is probably not worth the card slot.
Hobart Grapplehammer you came and you gave without taking!
Aggro everywhere man.Paladin, Mage, Hunter,... and even Rogue has joined aggro team with Small-Time Buccaneer and Patches the Pirate, even meme Shadow Rager did 9 dmg to my face on turn 4. I haven't seen any Miracle Rogue in ladder yet. LUL RIP miracle
Right now, 1 Ooze and 1 or more taunt minions should be included in any deck.
