Hey panda, just a thought. What about Southsea Deckhand? Another pirate, a combo activator, early removal, and a nice cheap pair with the shark and Fungalmancer to get a 6/5 with charge. You could even play the shark, the deckhand, and fungalmancer together on turn 10. With a Bonemare, you could get a 10/9 with charge on turn 9 if the shark is already out.
I guess he dilutes your Hooktusk draw, when you probably want the other pirates. On the other hand, there are probably times you can't get a full draw with Hooktusk if you've already drawn the other pirates.
Just a thought. I don't have the pieces to try it out.
