Pirate Rogue Deck Guide Standard HearthstonePosted by Hearthstone 12 December 2016 in
Warrior isn’t the only class that works great with pirates, several players were already tinkering around with Pirate Rogue, but this list was piloted to #1 Legend on Asia by “Rufeng”. The deck is very aggressive and should be played as such, it also includes some counter tech to facilitate the Pirate Warrior matchup. Rufeng had a 70% winrate vs Pirate Warrior.

Pirate Rogue Strategy
It’s extremely important you establish early game board control. You want to remove your enemies’ board efficiently while developing your own, using tools such as: Backstab, The Coin + SI:7 Agent, or your dagger as removal.
However you cannot keep trading, you need to close games fast. Use Cold Blood preferably on a harder to remove minion to start pushing face damage. Close out the game with Leeroy Jenkins, weapon burst, chargers.
Pirate Rogue Mulligan
Look for a 1-drop pirate, having this in hand will allow you to play Patches the Pirate for free.
On the coin:
Also keep Acidic Swamp Ooze vs weapon classes.
- Edwin VanCleef: A lot of “1-cost” cards together with The Coin & Backstab you can potentially just cheese someone in an early turn.
- Acidic Swamp Ooze: A lot of weapon classes being run at the moment.
- Undercity Valiant: Pirate Warrior tech, allows you to efficiently remove a 1 health creature.
- Argent Horserider: Sticky minion, works great with Cold Blood
