How do control decks generally fight Odyn Warrior?
I play as a Shadow Minion Priest, and have used general cards like - armor vendor (+4 armor) x2 - sunfury clergy (+6 heal) x2 - watcher of the sun (+6 heal) x2 - dirty rat (sometimes it pull him out) - Theotar (hope to discover his card)
but I know the moment my opponent plays Odyn, it's pretty much an auto-lost for me. - I can't afford a 20+ damage in one turn. Dirty rats are my only taunts.
Just wondering if there's any cards that I can use, since I'm facing a ton-load of warrior at Diamond 5? Or do I just accept this as the rock to my scissors? Thanks! =)
As a warrior player stealing odyn and then removing him from the deck is your best move, or to go for a really fast kill. Honestly if we can survive the turn where odyn gets played, the turn after is really gonna hurt
taunts is a good idea, but usually putting pressure on them will make them use some of their armor spells early. def pack weapon removal since if they get a windfury weapon its gg. but its def not favored. either you pack alot of aggro but beware of brawl or you can interrupt as control. Really if there would be a deck that works against warrior and warlock that would be nice
Lots of Taunts will block attacks once Odynn comes out. Also, anything that freezes an enemy helps. They can’t attack if their hero is frozen.
Unfortunately, only Death Knight and Mage has class access to Freeze. Although Solid Alibi is a great counter to massive warrior swings as well. Glacial Shard is a good neutral option but that’s it. If Warrior starts to dominate, I expect Frost DK will be good again to counter it. Lots of ways to freeze face there.
Thaddeus warlock stops Odyn warrior outright. They have limited board clears, no silence and no unconditional removals. A 11/11 that gives a huge discount effect on turn 7 or earlier destroys their plan. Odyn on 8 is a do nothing play, punish them after they play Odyn or make them delay their game plan. Undead/shadow priest really can’t compete with Odyn though.
