Rush decks vs Warlock Giants

Posts: 15
How do you deal with rush decks as Giants players? The whole point is a stead 8/8 4/10 drop at turn 4 right? How do you guys handle those 4-5 turns when the giant kind of just sits there while you get flailed at for 10-15 damage. It becomes very clear whether or not I'll make it to turn 9 to play the saviours Alexstrazsa and Jaraxxus.

Depends on my draw alot of times i just die . I tried playing other decks but they just get horribly murdererd by giants ...

Hunter is the worst they just spam cheap charge minions and shoot you with the hero power until you play minions at which point they play UTH and a Buff minion for the Hounds. Not enough heal to survive the barage. Overall horrible games .

Hellfire and Defender of Argus/Sunfury Protector to give your 8/8's (or whatever is available at the time) taunt.

As Serp said, it can be very draw dependent, but the tools are there.

As I've said the gap begins at turn 4-5 and all of the cards above are played then. I'm talking about doin something at turn 2-3 to prevent the rush from starting in the first place

You can run Doomsayers to stall for 1 turn . Can work IF they show up early enough which has never happened when i put them in. Which led to me tossing them again because i never freaking get them when i need them ( early ).

also if you have a doomsayer AND the coin you can tap once, doomsayer turn 3 and still be able to mountain giant on turn 4
