Totally looking forward to seeing this card in pirate warrior at some point. I guess this is the reason to play that new minion that copies rush minions, adds a lot of extra damage to your weapon.
Loving the art for the card though, even if I know I’ll hate playing against it
Who needs consistency when you could have fun?
Really, i can't help but compare it to Greenskin. It does the same (potentially more than once, but unlikely) and it's more proactive.
I guess this is just one way to get his effect on a more playable card?
I tried having fun once.
It was awful.
This makes Playmaker playable, because warriors like their weapons big and sturdy.
Would be better than greenskin were it not for pirate synergies. Still, this is likely to make it into midrange pirate warrior just because of the power of combining upgrade with a rush minion. The only downside is that you don't get the buff if your opponent has no minions.
Probably sees play in warrior, but I don't think that any rogue deck really uses this other than slower kingsbane decks, which aren't great by virtue of being slow rogue decks.
This post is discussing the wild format.
The down-vote is an 'I disagree' button, not an insult.
I'm not hyped, but I am playing Captain Greenskin from time to time. Right now it's in my Bomb Warrior deck. While this card is surely better because it has an immediate impact and the potential to get more than one buff out of it, it doesn't curve well with Wrenchcalibur. You could wait a turn and combo it with Playmaker, but I'm not convinced this is reliable enough to be worth adding those in that deck. nevermind, I can't read.
So it's a solid card for now, but we'll probably have to wait and see if there are more Weapons to show up before we can evaluate it correctly.
Double the pride, double the fall.
I think, this one will find a spot in some constructed decks in standard. It's a proactive Greenskin and who doesn't like big weapons with sweet effects :).

Its captain greenskin, but with some upsides. It has rush, can trigger multiple times (assuming it survives), and can be copied for a double trigger, crucial things greenskin can't do.
But if your opponent's control, then this 50% of the time doesn't do anything. So greenskin still has a slight niche.
Good enough card, but I won't be rushing to craft it as long as greenskin still exist.
Being on par with a classic legendary that sees play in 1 deck per year isn't a good thing.But hey, that deck is currently a good one!
Also when <=> whenever?
very powerful combo ... Ooze and H.Jones have to be included as much as possible to counter him

Great with Playmaker and Steeldancer. Warrior used to love playing Darius Crowley as removal/board presence, and this is arguably a better Darius Crowley. Sure it might have less survivability, but Darius Crowley also gets removed pretty much right away, so i still think +1/+1 for a weapon > +2/+2 stats (-health for trading). And it also works kinda like Captain Greenskin So i guess you dont NEED to run the pirate package to get a similar effect regularly. But it might also get runned ALONGSIDE Captain Greenskin in order to buff your weapons even more.

I get your comparison with Crowley, but it is kinda a faulty one. Crowley was good because of the extra stats he got from the trades, so it kept being a constant threat and also harder to remove than this after it attacks. That isnt to say that Krastinov isnt a great card, but you wouldnt run it for the same reason as Crowley. They can end up being used in a similar way sometimes, but you wont just drop this whenever.

Captain Greenskin seems like an obvious comparison. They are both 5 mana, they both give your weapon +1/+1, and they are both only used by Warriors and Rogues. The only real difference is that this guy has rush which makes him 200 times better.

5/5 card, works well in almost any deck with weapons. As other dual cards, seems more of a warrior card than a rogue card.
This looks promising - and with that i mean strong!
I guess Weapon Removal needs to be teched in the upcoming meta :)

Hmm, looks like a lot of weapon synergy for rogue/warrior. I wonder what new weapons they will give us to use with it.

A Captain Greenskin without the tribe and -1 attack, but with rush so I’d say it’s an upgrade. Combo with Playmaker with a good weapon equipped to make your opponent cry.
It's simply a better Captain Greenskin, which sees on and off play. This card will basically replace him there.
Better greenskin except it doesn't have the pirate tag.. so if you don't care about that pirate tag it's that.. also goes well with all the new expansion dual class cards so far.
I like it. Decent effect, definitely playable.
