if i dont have quest, what is warriors win condition??. Priest stalls game and 4 mind blasts to face with velen and malygos, mecha’thun priest or mecha’thun warlock kills the deck so easily, deathrattle hunter crushes it and has insane value.
Odd Warrior seems so garbage with no win condition
Odd warrior is pretty decent, I am at rank 12 now with him and going further. Win condition is ton of armor, Dr. Boom and mass removals. You don't have Krush here, you just strangle your opponent to death.
Yeah you're just trying to grind your opponent out. Its really good against aggro because once they are low on cards their top decks have little to no value and you'll still be holding a hand full of guys etc but it gets crushed by any late game strategy with inevitability (i.e. an alternative win condition like Mecha'thun or DK Uther, something that creates sticky boards and massive value such as anything running Carnivorous Cube, or any infinite value/damage combo). The reason it is such an underrepresented deck is because it has so many 80/20 and 20/80 matchups and as such it is super frustrating to ladder with. Quest gives you some kind of kill pressure and improves your matchups against OTK strategies and Deathstalker Rexxar, but unfortunately makes you even weaker against Cube varients and slightly weaker to aggro as well.
The only weakness this deck has is matchup vs exodia decks - paladin and mechathun priest. These decks are almost impossible to win against. But thankfully they are few on ladder now.
What about Cube Hunter, any other Hunter who hard mulls for Rexxar and hits, Cube Warlock, Mecha'thun Warlock, Mecha'thun Druid, Clone Priest, Warrior decks with Quest?
I have 50+% WR against Cube Hunter and Spell Hunter decks. Mechathun warlocks and druids are nowhere to be seen for like 2-3 months already. Clone priest is beatable if you stack enough armor (40+) and keep clearing his Velen and Malygos (the only real threats this deck has). Quest Warrior is a rare stuff, I still haven't seen any with my Odd Warrior.
I played a lot of odd warrior lately between rank 5 and legend, and I must say that hunter DK is not a big problem actually. I win most of my hunter matchups, even if Rexxar is played on 6. You have the ressources to hold against him until fatigue. The only terrible matchup is deathrattle hunter because eggs and cubes synergies are just top much to handle.
i wouldn't say it is bad - not the best deck right now, but if you see a lot of aggro/midrange stuff it should be very good - most Control or OTK Decks outvalue Odd Warrior but aggro or midrange shouldn't stand a chance against odd warrior.
Mostly the "win" condition is the fatigue or outlasting your oppoenent plan - and if you play against aggro and you clear their board for the 10th time they mostly concede anyways :)
I play a more Control/Dragon List with Dead Man's Handso my win condition are Fatigue and the dragons like Alexstrasza or other big dudes! i also play The Boomship - this card makes for some huge swing turns with enough good dragons in your hand.
The primary win condition is fatigue. It's boring to play and ultra boring to play against. I have never once thought "oh that opponent played well" if I lose to odd warrior.
Odd quest warrior, on the other hand, is pretty good and the removal is used more pro-actively so makes for more interesting games.
You don't feel satisfaction beating them either. Last week I beat one with my Even Paladin. The only reason I stood a chance was because I highrolled with 2 corpsetakers. Otherwise I probably would have lost because of the matchup.
