    When you’ve just dropped 4 places without winning a game due to net decking RNG’ng, face rush, zero skill, pirate warrior bore bags, you’ll craft a deck with two of these snappy crabs, chuck in as many ooze as the game will allow and bring Harrison along as well and set out for revenge! Then you’ll end up playing face mage for 8 games on the bounce, uninstall, divert your free time to your career and within 6 months you’ll be driving an Audi TT at 135mph with a hot blonde in the passenger seat.

    It will not see play in Pirate warrior, seriously. Posiibly losing pirate synergy on turn 3 weakens 2 of your 3 3-drops (arguably berserker benefits less from less minions as well, even if its a stickier one). Also, sacrificing Patches is not a tempo swing at all, nor a value play. Both the tempo and the value were generated by Patches himself, and not by this mediocre card. It’s also a horrible draw later on, as it might force you to kill your own minions, making it sit awkwardly in your hand. This would come at a stage where you are hoping for a possible lethal, making this card even worse. So it’s a mediocre turn2 play at best and a horrible play at worst. I bet it won’t see play in Pirate warrior.

      I could see it being played to make the mirror easier.

    seems too specific to me to work. plus Pirate decks have some many good weapons i doubt it matter even if you get it off.

    and who’s to say Pirates will even be viable once the dust settles with the new expansion/rotation?

    What if this card backfires and pirate decks will use it to eat their own a pirates (N’zoth mate, small time bucaneer or patches). It is basically a totem golem, 2 mana 3/4 on turn 2.

      Yup – I would actually run this in a Rogue pirate deck…

      “Thanks for the card Swashburglar – here’s your reward….”

    I can honestly say that this is extremely situational and that in most cases I would not consider running it. Because it is a Beast, it might be a one of in my Hunter decks if Pirates are still good, but that’s it.

    I dont get how an inland crab stuck in a crater has a taste for pirates

      thinking the same thing – i mean how does it survive if it only feeds on pirates and on nothing else

        Because pirates are rich in that sodium content from all the people they beat

      well… pirates look for treasures… maybe the crater is full of good stuff and they want it… so pirates are common(?) and crabs eat em?

    While I’m sure this will either see regular play or force a “Pirates in, Pirates out” meta, it’s kind of disappointing that they had to resort to a “silver bullet” card to address the over-saturation of Pirate decks.

    Anti-pirate: you could have bet on this one.

    What a unbelievable lazy uninspired card design!
    No Idea how they came up with that. oO

    Jeff: Wait what do we do with these Pirates? they seem still be too good why didn’t we think about anything? UnGoro release is coming up.
    random Employee: Uhh i have it make a hungry crap but with Pirates ?
    Jeff: Great Idea! And so fitting you know with backstory and flavor and everything. So cool a crap that eats pirate wohooo problem solved everyone will love it.

    When i saw it for the first time, i burst into laugh. A crab that specifically has a taste for pirates lulz. I’m glad to see cards like this.

    I’m kinda curious what his flavour text will be – will it mention a 1 1/1 with chaaaaarge.
