  • Captain Greenskin's Battlecry is useful in any weapon deck, and strongly encourages waiting to play him until you have a suitable weapon equipped. Given his otherwise underwhelming stats, Greenskin is likely a poor choice for decks which do not feature weapons.
  • This card is the only way a rogue can increase the durability of their weapons, with the exception of using Lorewalker Cho on spells like Upgrade!.


Drink up, me hearties!
Yo Ho, ahahahaha!


From Wowpedia:

Captain Greenskin was a level 20 elite goblin in the Deadmines. Captain Greenskin was a goblin captain in the employ of Edwin VanCleef. His first mate was Mr. Smite, and the cook aboard his ship was Cookie. Greenskin was killed when a group of Alliance adventurers attacked the Deadmines.


This card's flavor text "If it weren't for those pesky kids!" is a well-known quote from Scooby-Doo.

The card art actually depicts Short John Mithril, an arena master in the Gurubashi Arena in the contested territory of Stranglethorn Vale.
