I agree the metas in neither standard nor wild are not the best at the moment.
It has been mentioned before that Raza priest, big priest and secret mage is a very tough trip to tech against. Secret mage tends to run you over if you tech against the other 2. Then, there are plenty of other strong decks like odd paladin and token druid which make things even more complicated.
Your opponents obviously CAN play other decks, but the true tryhard Wild meta starts around 11 stars, and they will play what they win the most with. You will find more variety further down, but still expect a lions share of priests and secret mages.
Yep its true and its sad. Wild meta was for quiet some time great. Rez Priest had a horrible return.
Im basicly at the same spot as you. I finished around Legend 700 where i literally played 10 games in a row against priests. I even send a screenshot to my m8, since i have never seen this before since beta :O
Since the new season started the priests went back a little and more mages came in. From Bronze to D5 i had 68% of my games against Secret Mage and Priests. I wanted to go legend as a shaman. But i couldnt build a shaman deck that beats both so i gave up.
Atm im at D2. From D5 to D2 i met only 9% mage but still the 55% priests...
Used to play highlander quest hunter in wild and reached legend with it a few months ago. Now they nerfed Dinotamer Brann, so, with the Brann-Brann combo gone, HL hunter has no chance against priest anymore. One more fun deck gone from the format. At least Cubelock has lost its popularity, it was on pair stupid with the priests and secret mages.
My advice: Just keep grinding till you make legend. If you want to make it easier on yourselves consider playing one of the 3 broken decks until you reach legend. Once in legend start playing your favorite meme/off-meta decks. The first 10-15 matches will mostly be tough losses to Secret Mages and Priests. But once you drop to ~2k legend or worse you will realize that the meta there is different and full of other legend-ranked players who enjoy their tier3-tier4 decks
Against priests its pretty easy, i could have done better. Lost 2 games cause of own mistakes. Against Secret Mages there is really nothing to do...Warlocks seem to be easy and Druids too...wxcept you get overrun in the start:)
