Patches saw its first iteration in early 2014 as "Dragon Whelp", a non-legendary 1/1 Dragon to be included in the Blackrock Mountain "Have you heard the rumblings? The mountain stirs once more. Beneath its crags, cliffs and rocks, there s evil in its core. Fire made flesh! Dragon s breath! Teeth and claw and flame! Calling any heroes out hearthstone set. Its effect was similar to the final card, but was triggered by the playing of a Dragon rather than a Pirate, and it did not have Charge. The non-legendary status also allowed the player to include 2 copies in their deck. Be that as it may, a preference for Dragons to mostly remain high-cost, and "odd" synergy with Faerie Dragon Faerie Dragon Set: Classic Type: Minion Subtype: Dragon Rarity: Common Cost: 2 Attack: 3 Health: 2 Abilities: Elusive Can t be targeted by Spells or Hero Powers.Adorable. Immune to Magic. Doesn t pee on the rug. The hearthstone resulted in the developers dropping card from the set, and trying it as a legendary minion in the next set.

The developers "briefly considered" making the card a Murloc Murlocs are a type of minion, best known for their swarming gameplay and board-wide synergy. Relatively weak in isolation, their low mana cost allows them to quickly flood the board, with their synergistic effects causing hearthstone , but despite its design fitting with the type`s swarming gameplay, it was found to be the most fun as a Pirate. Once it was changed to a legendary, the developers tried making the card a 2/1, before settling on a 1/1 Charge design. While it worked well in the Grand Tournament "From east to west, heroes are sent, seeking glory in the greatest of events... there are knights on noble steeds; those who will bring them to their knees; there are monsters to test their mettle hearthstone set, the card was removed "last second" due to synergy with One-Eyed Cheat and Ship`s Cannon Ship s Cannon Set: Goblins vs Gnomes Type: Minion Rarity: Common Cost: 2 Attack: 2 Health: 3 Abilities: Deal damage Tags: Pirate-related, Random, Summoning-related, Triggered effect After you summon a Pirate, deal 2 damage to a hearthstone . It was only the introduction of game formats Game formats present distinct ways to play Hearthstone. There are two main game formats: Standard and Wild. Other game formats present themselves in tournaments as tournament formats (e.g. Conquest, Last Hero Standing, Sealed Deck, Pauper, hearthstone and the relegation of One-Eyed Cheat to Wild format Wild format or Wild is one of Hearthstone s two game formats, the other being Standard format. Wild format appears in game modes in which players are allowed to play decks without the deck restrictions of hearthstone that would later make the card`s design viable; this would prevent it from achieving problematic power levels in Standard format, while its higher power level would not be considered problematic in Wild format, which has a higher power level overall as well as a higher tolerance for unusual combos in general.

Prior to the card`s removal, The Grand Tournament featured two legendary Pirate minions: Skycap`n Kragg Skycap n Kragg Set: The Grand Tournament Type: Minion Subtype: Pirate Rarity: Legendary Cost: 7 Attack: 4 Health: 6 Abilities: Charge, Modify cost Tags: Battlefield-related, In-hand effect, Ongoing effect, Pirate-related CharrrrrgeCosts (1) less for each friendly hearthstone and Captain Scaleblade The subject of this article has been removed from Hearthstone. The unnamed The Grand Tournament minion briefly seen at the beginning of the expansion trailer. Captain Scaleblade 1] was a minion card originally planned to hearthstone . The card discussed on this page was the original Skycap`n Kragg. Because the art for that card was somewhat iconically seen in the expansion`s trailer, when the effect of the card was deemed too powerful, the art and titles of the two Pirates were swapped, with Skycap`n Kragg becoming a 4/6 Charge, and the other design (and character) being left out of the set.

Be that as it may, while it was removed from the set, the original stats and art for the removed Pirate card were still shown in the expansion`s trailer. As a result, players became curious about the unnamed legendary. Brode revealed some background about the card, including that it had been removed due to synergy with an unnamed card from the Goblins vs Gnomes "Goblins and gnomes… goblins and gnomes! Both are super-brilliant - but you would never know! Everything they seem to make is faulty or explodes… Perfecting imperfection - goblins and gnomes!" Wild format Goblins vs Gnomes hearthstone set, but stated that he was "going to try and sneak it in again someday, so no spoilers". Balance Designer Dean Ayala Dean Ayala Set: CREDITS Type: Minion Rarity: Legendary Cost: 7 Attack: 7 Health: 5 You can t lose stars while this is in your deck.See this card on Hearthpwn data page] Aug. Dean Ayala is a hearthstone described it as his favourite card, stating "it was a card so awesome that it would have overshadowed everything else, thus must have been cut."

With Brode continuing to champion its inclusion in each new set, the developers tried again to add the card in Whispers of the Old Gods  "Now I ve got a tale to tell you... of the ones from long ago. There s an evil that s been dreaming, but now it s softly screaming! From the darkness their power will grow. Their voices are hearthstone , as the original design for N`Zoth`s First Mate (initially jokingly titled "Dean⃢₀ₙs First Mate", in reference to Dean Ayala`s love of the card). Be that as it may, despite being a Warrior-only card, the design was again cut. In Jul. 2016 Brode admitted that he regretted not having made the card.

It was not until 16 months after its first public appearance in the The Grand Tournament trailer that the card would see an official debut as Patches the Pirate, featured as part of the initial reveal for Mean Streets of Gadgetzan "Gadgetzan, where the gangs rule the streets; Gadgetzan, full of swindlers and cheats. Zip and sing the ring-a-ding-ding, on the mean streets of Gadgetzan! Gadgetzan, where the crime doesn t pay; Gadgetzan - but we do hearthstone . The set was the right fit for Patches due to several factors, most importantly the removal of One-Eyed Cheat and Ship`s Cannon from Standard format, as well as the position of Mean Streets as the final set of the year, resulting in a bigger card pool and thus a reduced likelihood of Patches having a `disproportionate` impact.

Patches is therefore the third name and art for the same underlying card design, with all three depicting flying pirates of one kind or another. According to senior game designer Matt Place, the card`s roughly 2 year history "might be the record. It`s certainly one of the longest running development cycles of any card."


"It was my favorite card and a lot of the design group still makes fun of me. Because it was the last week before BRM and he was in the set and I was like, `Oh, this is awesome, I want to play him in my deck.` And then I got sick and I came back and they were like, `Oh, we cut your favorite card.` Now every time anyone gets sick we`re like, `What`s your favorite card?` `No! I`m not telling you!`"

  • Patches` use of "I`m" and "aye" in his summon and attack quotes, respectively, are likely intended as puns on "eye".
  • Patches` summoning quote could be a reference to the line "Look at me, I am the captain now" from the movie Captain Phillips, starring Tom Hanks.
