    pretty good card i think. certainly better than pally 1/4 weapon. I think should compare it to mustard for battle. the 1/3 weapon is almost as good as the 1/4. You get 2 less tokens but it costs 2 less mana which is pretty fair.

    Also you have to think about the context of the current meta. Apart from finley warriors usually just pass turn 1 now they have 2 turn 1 drops.

    I think this card will see play in top constructed. It won’t be one of the most influential but will probably be borderline top 30 in a deck.

      I do see a problem now. This card kinda conflicts with warrior too in that warriors run 4-5 weapons (2x fiery war ax 2x deathbite 1x gorehowl). Perticularly it conficts with fiery war ax as if you play this turn 1 what are u going to do with the war ax. So i take it back this card isn’t great.

    1st turn: enemy plays a 2/1
    you play this, kill their 2/1 with the weapon
    2nd turn: enemy plays a 3/2
    you kill their 3/2 with the minion + weapon, play a 2 drop
    I think this is a pretty likely scenario, and a huge tempo boost for you

    Great card for arena, in constructed, no existing deck would play this and I even think it is too slow for face warrior (if it comes back).

      I don’t think I would describe this card as slow. It’s kind of similar to Muster for Battle for 1 mana. (You get a 1/1 and a light Light’s Justice) It’s a great temp card early game and I think even some non pirate decks would put at least one of them in their deck.

      Actually, this IS a red pirate, so we are getting “pirate rouge”. As for pirate ROGUE, though… I definitely agree; that deck could use a little love.

    I think we are getting ahead of ourselves , it looks like a great card , but we dont know if rusty has a effect or not and whether it is a positive or negative effect.

    Turn 1 > Coin > First Mate + Upgrade . . . seems good!

    Great first turn play and good pirate synergy, but keep in mind it’s a terrible top deck late game.

    This on turn one with coin to play another one drop is pretty damn great imo!!

    This is just nuts. It’s fast, it’s efficient, it makes me want to give Face Warrior another shot. It’s just what I always wanted.

      I would doubt it, but we don’t know yet.

        Bear in mind it could have a negative effect

      I have inside information that it will be like cursed blade but instead of double its triple

        Oh jesus christ…triple damage to face? That’s just a bit absurd..

        That would card POINTLESS. Even Blizz wouldn’t go THAT far. Maybe…

        Umm… No? That would make it the worst card in the game by far. As in, if they did anything at all (even just hero power 3 turns in a row, aside from priest/warrior), the damage you took would outweigh the value of the card; unless it gave you lethal, the card would be absolutely horrendous in every circumstance.

        tl;dr: No.
