Our Odd Fatigue Warrior deck list guide features the best Witchwood deck list for Season 52 (July 2018). Our Odd Fatigue Warrior guide also contains Mulligan advice, card combos and strategy tips.

Odd Fatigue Warrior is a new kind of control deck which looks to Baku the Mooneater to provide a huge amount of late-game staying power. With this minion in your deck, your Hero Power is upgraded to provide four points of Armor rather than the usual two.

You're restricted to including only odd-cost cards in this deck as a result, but the idea is that you should be able to outlast just about anyone you encounter on the ladder.

As this is something of an off-meta deck at the time of writing, we're keeping our deck guide a little simpler than usual. For now you can find a snapshot of the latest deck seeing competitive play, along with some tips on the cards to watch out for during the Mulligan phase. Finally, we've broken down all the combos in the deck to help you understand how the cards come together.

If the deck becomes more popular over time we'll add in our usual aggro and control match-up advice, but we think this should be enough to get you started with for now. Ask in the comments if there's anything you're struggling with, and we'll do our best to help you out!

Odd Fatigue Warrior Mulligan guide

Keep a particular eye out for the following cards when Mulliganing your opening hand. In approximate order of importance:

  • 1. Town Crier - A great value Turn 1 play which provides you with extra fuel for the other early turns.
  • 2. Stonehill Defender - This is particularly useful against aggro decks, but all opponents will find this rather frustrating to deal with in the early game.
  • 3. Gluttonous Ooze - Only keep this card in your opening hand if you're confident you'll be going up against another weapon-wielding opponent.

Odd Fatigue Warrior tips, combos and synergies

In this section we'll break down all of the core combos that exist in this exact version of Odd Fatigue Warrior:

- Shield Slam's strength is equal to that of your current Armor value at the time of casting. Shield Block can be used to boost your current Armor reserves, while your upgraded Hero Power is another obvious source of power.

- Assuming they're left somewhere in your deck pile, Town Crier will bring either Rabid Worgen or Darius Crowley into play. Both are pretty good options!

- Gluttonous Ooze doesn't just destroy your opponent's weapon, it'll also provide you with Armor equal to the Attack value of that weapon.

- Rabid Worgen and Darius Crowley both possess the Rush effect. This means they can attack enemy minions - but not the enemy hero - on the same turn they're played out onto the board.

- If Darius Crowley kills a minion and survives the encounter, he'll gain an extra +2 / +2 of stats.

- If you can work the board in order to increase the odds of getting a good result from Brawl, do so!

- When Harrison Jones is played, any weapon your opponent is holding at the time will be destroyed. You'll also draw a number of cards equal to the value of that weapon's Durability at the time of destruction.

- Try to keep in mind that Baron Geddon deals damage to both sides of the board, and also each hero as well. Be careful you don't give up some Armor you need for a follow-up play.

- If you attack a minion rather than the enemy using Gorehowl, the blade will lose a point of Attack instead of Durability.

- You can combine Whirlwind with King Mosh to clear down the board, although make sure your fragile minions do some useful work first!
