With the arrival of Whispers of the Old Gods and game formats, the wiki has switched over to Standard format.
The preferred format for new and advanced players alike, most card lists will from now on only show cards valid in Standard format, making it easier for readers to find the information they're looking for.
For those interested in Wild format, Wild listings can now be found on subpages, such as Deathrattle/Wild format, linked just above main card listings, and Wild strategy and tips are still featured in our articles.

Strategy[edit | edit source]
Southsea Deckhand has Charge while a weapon is equipped. This makes him ideally used in a deck that has a lot of weapons. A rogue deck is particularly good due to their hero power Dagger Mastery, which allows them to almost constantly have a weapon equipped.
Note that Southsea Deckhand's ability is not a Battlecry. In particular, if Southsea Deckhand is played and the weapon is then lost (e.g. by attacking with a weapon with only 1 remaining Durability), the Deckhand will lose Charge and be unable to attack, so order of attack can be important. Conversely, it is not necessary to equip a weapon before playing Southsea Deckhand; equipping a weapon at any time while he is on the board will cause him to immediately gain Charge.
Lore[edit | edit source]
Southsea Deckhand is a member of the Southsea Freebooters.
- The Southsea Freebooters, a small fleet of pirates, have no landward home — at least none that authorities have found — but are a common sight along the coast of the Barrens and Tanaris, and have even recently appeared in the flooded Thousand Needles. Their connection with the Northsea Freebooters is unclear, but the Northsea Freebooters seem to have a severe disliking of the Southsea ones.
- The Southsea Freebooters have several bases located along the southeastern coasts of Kalimdor.
