The comp you are running is horribly, horribly broken at the moment, thus, many consider it cheating. In order to have any prayer against Valk/Stitched(Fawn, Blighthawk, etc.)/DH(or DAH), one needs a precise comp directed at beating the CC heal and perfect play. Whether the Haunt->Consume Corpse synergy was ever intended is up for debate (I lean towards an accident that got through testing), but as is it is stupidly OP (It's basically an on-demand Wish heal that includes invulnerability for one pet, a free "smart" pet swap, and 480+ dmg to boot). If a comp is winning the vast majority of games because of an exploit, then said comp will garner tons of hate (deserved in this case). It will come back down to earth when Haunt gets it's long-awaited nerf.
Using broken pets is not cheating (they are in the game after all!), but many frown upon people that use them. I use them, but with a caveat(s); I only use comps like Valk/Fawn/DAH against people using similar pets and only if I repeatedly run into teams like that. The other pets aren't an issue; Stitched Pups are nothing to worry about without a valk for the most part. My rule of thumb is if I run into a team with a valk on it, I stay and play them with my valk/CC team. If I don't, then I just flee. My ego doesn't need stroking by beating up weaker opposition with broken pets
