    By the way, the reason I decided to run Bloodsail Corsairs instead of Southsea Captains is because with corsair you can get Patches out on turn 1 and it's also more easily combo-ed with Ship's Cannon on turn 3 (or 2 with coin).

    Also, back then Patches had charge so running southsea captains was valuable since it became a free 2-2 with charge.

    My aim with this deck was to complete the quest quickly and get as much as value from the double battlecries as possible. As a result, you can see that both the main package and all the other packages are very minion heavy. If you wanted to add fist to this deck you would also need to add quite a reasonable amount of spells, which kinda defeats the original purpose of the deck. Besides, fist and the quest hero power doesn't interact at all, so I don't think it doesn't make a lot of sense as an idea anyway (no offense). But I guess you can make a reno fist deck without the quest, and I don't think I've ever seen anyone post something like that, so if you feel like it go for it.

    If you draw it early you can play it as just a 3-3 even if you don't have a lackey in play to get quest progression, if you draw it late then you can probably hold onto it and play other stuff until you do eventually get a lackey. So basically it's either a cheap quest progression or 3 mana deal 6 damage, which makes it decent in any case.

    Same scenario actually applies to desert hare + evolve in the evolve package as well. But desert hare is a little bit worse since it's easier to deal with in early game.

    I've seen someone do it in standard with Shadowform so it probably works with Dinomancy too.

    I agree that Pirate Warrior seems a little problematic but it's not the Parachute Brigand that's causing a problem. Brigand is surely good, but it's nowhere near Patches, difference between getting a free body out of your deck and out of your hand is pretty huge. In theory, you should be fine as long as you can deal with the initial strong wave of minions since they won't have much resources for the rest of the game but in practice that's not really how it goes. The problem is the resource generation and draw that pirate warrior didn't have before. Ancharrr provides a lot of draw and they can buff / refresh it with Hoard Pillager, Captain Greenskin and Upgrade!, and Sky Raider provides resource generation which sometimes insanely highrolls by giving some rogue pirates like Captain Hooktusk and Hench-Clan Burglar.

    It's a little bit too early to be doomsayer-ing, for now, it's obvious pirate warrior is definitely not on par with galakrond shaman, so we will have to look at it after the nerfs and see if it's as dominating as it was in mean streets, but I kinda doubt it since some control and midrange decks seem actually quite strong too, it's just that no other deck is as strong as gk shaman so they are not in the spotlight.

     I appreciate giving credit to my deck. I would love to hear why you decided to cut the crystology, brazen zealot, and beaming sidekick package, especially when they are pretty cheap too. I can see why you included dread corsairs (I even suggest running this instead of rhyssa in my version as a replacement), blessing of might, spellbreakers, additional copies of noble sac and redemption, but candletaker seems a little odd to me. I guess it would be a great redemption target but beyond that I can't really understand why you choose to use it.

    As for your comments on my deck, I agree spellbreaker is definitely a good substitute if you are facing a lot of nzoth priests, but I don't really understand why you found ziliax to be a bad card, it's very good in board centric matchups and has synergy with pretty much all secrets. I found snip snap to be a little too slow to make the cut, but I can see you promoting it for the magnetic synergy with ziliax, i actually did run both in my old version.

    I agree actually. I didn't even use this deck to climb to rank 5. I have found from my personal experience that any deck based on secrets (hunter and mage too) doesn't work after rank 5 due to players knowing better exactly what secret to expect at any given moment so they play around them better. For example, from my experience I have found pure secret hunter (non-highlander) to be the best deck overall in like ranks 15, whereas it's garbage on rank 5, similarly, highlander hunter's power level also decreases as you go up the ladder for the same reason (although it's definitely affected less than pure secret hunter).

    There is also a similar story regarding aggro decks as well, in lower ranks people tend to just play their aoes/removal without thinking much about it but when you go up the ladder you can see people actually holding back them for better value.

    So both of these factors lead me to believe that while this deck is very good in lower ranks, it's power level heavily decreases as you go up the ladder, but I can't really confirm that theory since I haven't had the opportunity to play this deck in ranks above 9.

    It's true that mysterious challenger is definitely the mvp in the deck but I have played this deck enough to know that you can definitely finish out games even before turn 6 mostly thanks to secretkeeper and brazen zealot. For that reason, your ideal preys are midrangey decks that don't have a lot of early options (like quest shaman, quest druid, highlander hunter).

    The control matchups on the other hand are problematic, and nzoth priest is unfortunately pretty popular, it's by far the worst matchup for this deck (worse than control warrior), even though you can try running tech cards like spellbreaker for that matchup you will mostly lose, it's just due to the nature of the game, control beats aggro.

    Also I can definitely say that this is a hard deck to pilot as far as aggro decks go since there are many factors to this deck. Firstly, unlike other aggro decks, this doesn't have a lot of card draw/generation, so you need to be aware of your resources and learn how to use them. Secondly, you need to learn and play to the strengths of your own secrets, they are actually pretty valuable to secure some wins it's all about expecting how will your opponent react to the secrets you play according to the board state. And thirdly there are some details that are spesific to the matchups that you need to be aware of (like playing around certain removal cards, expecting and playing around secrets, playing around mc tech in certain matchups etc.).

    For a full matchup guide you can also refer to pre-mysterious challenger version of the deck.
