Captain Hooktusk is absolutely broken

Play Mode Discussion
8 Mana summon 24/24 in stats with rush and draw 2 to 4 cards. Give me a break with this recruit crap already. How long have we had to deal with this bull!@#$? Come on.

And yes, ironically I know she doesn't fight fair. D:
Hooktusk is strong, but I have yet to lose more than a handful of games to her specifically. Usually the Pirates she summons are a bit more fragile, especially if they utilize their Rush effect, so either a follow-up board clear or Taunt can help you stabilize.

Rogue doesn't have many ways at all to generate a wide board rapidly, so it's an easier thing to plan ahead and hold on to some aoe for than other classes.
it's rush, not charge, so what's the problem? any aoe and it's gg

You can't just say "Any AoE and it's GG" only few decks actually have AoE.
I disagree with OP.

It is certainly a strong card when playing on the curve. But rogues only run a handful of pirates in the deck.

The biggest threat from aggro/ tempo rogue is still early game especially when they run corpse taker. It forces opponents to have answers to the board early on. Hooktusk is just a way to re-establish the board.
Hail, how many alts do you need? XD

Let's try another angle here - which deck were you running when you lost to Hooktusk?
