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.

Southsea Deckhand is a Pirate, which means he can benefit from Southsea Captain and Captain's Parrot.


Southsea Deckhand is a member of the Southsea Freebooters.

From Wowpedia:

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.
