    What use could this possibly have? Normally you actually want to use the weapons you put into your deck.

    I tried having fun once.

    It was awful.

    First Shaman Pirate? Interesting, and has standard 4 cost class card stats. Could be quite good as you constantly get a fresh weapon every turn.

    So we get an evolve shaman card for weapons? Thats Quite interesting. Not sure what you want to use this for though. Actually this can be usefull! As long as Suckerhook is on board your weapon wont break... as long as it has >1 durability at the end of your turn. So as long as Suckerhook is on board you can keep swinging with your weapon.

    RNG is only fun as long as there is a 50/50 chance of getting something really good or trash level of bad. If RNG always results in something good, then it's not fun.

    Whack-A-Gnoll Hammer into Truesilver Champion is very strong. It does go on curve too, so it'll probably happen more often than you think given that most 4 mana weapons will deal at least 3 damage, and nearly all of them are strong in their own right. If for any reason this card sticks for another turn you have a 30 percent chance of getting a Doomhammer for free.

    The only problem with this card is that you first need to have a weapon, not swing on turn 4, and the fact that this minion isn't an elemental so it cant immediately slot into elemental shaman. But if aggro shaman becomes a thing, this card is nearly an instant pick as long as there's credible 3 mana weapons around.

    The fact it isn't an elemental is a GOOD thing Dapper.  We don't need blizzard printing spoon fed meta cards to the kids.  "hey kids, you know how you love your aggro elemental shaman deck?  Well here's a new elemental weapon evolve card buckaroos!  Would you like me to wipe your ass for you too kiddies?"

    Uh... not the best.  Most of the Shaman weapons look to so something when you attack, so you don't want it to change.  If you got random crap weapons like Rusty Hook then it's totally awesome .

    I really want this to be good, because Shaman is my favorite class and any Pirate deck besides Warrior and Rogue is a cool idea.

    But sadly, I think Suckerhook just sucks. At least until they add some better 6-mana weapons to the game.

    I'm pretty sure weapon evolve is new. I don't know if you'd want to only get one swing off your Whack-A-Gnoll Hammer though. Getting a fresh weapon each turn seems pretty nice.
