You're dead wrong, it's not even funny. The fact that you think it's a better tool against hunters than odd paladin shows just how little you know.
Odd paladin doesn't work against mid hunters : secrets and springpaw destroys odd pally early game and then you're pretty much screwed. Only 3 people bring odd pally in HCT america, this must mean something.
Odd Paladin crushes every type of Hunter out there. You can clear three or four Odd Paladin board with secrets, springpaw and Rexxar but Odd Paladin can just create another board. I looked up the stats of Midrange Hunter vs Odd Paladin and it is 55% in favour of Odd Paladin, and that is accounting for trash Odd Paladins. You can easily add 10% more to the winrate if Odd Paladin player is half decent.
As for the tournament, most people didn't bring Odd Paladin cause there are a lot of Control Priest.
