"Peaked" at rank 5

Posts: 6
I came up w/ a secrets deck using 6 secrets. I do great against other Mages, Hunters, Druids, Shamans and Warriors but having a hard time with Miracle Rogues and Warlock Zoo. I'm about even with Paladins and Priests.

I peaked at rank 4 and keep going back and forth between 5 - 6. I feel like I have about "capped" though. I got to 1 star away from Rank 4 and then went on a losing streak running into Warlocks, Rogues and a 2 bad draws against Paladins. I don't run into a lot of other mages out there.

Are mages just not viable at the top ranks? Have that many of them made Ledendary recently?

I'm open to any advice because I've been "stuck" for the last 2 days and its getting a bit frustrating. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

ive been stuck in the same 4-6

however, i only see hunters - i seem to do fine against everyone else, but only 50/50 vs hunters - and they make up 70% of my games

i havent seen any mages in a week or so

I've been playing a lot the past few days -- am currently rank 3 after peaking at rank 2. I think in ~40 games I've met 1 other mage, and yes I'd say it's at least 50% hunters....seems to get worse at higher ranks also.

Had a nice win streak this morning where nothing gave me trouble...now I'm back to losing quite a bit.

Counterspell in a secrets deck has been a lifesaver against hunters. It stops their traps and if you have more than one secret out it also stops their flare so you don't lose everything. I like the hunter match ups its just a few of the other ones that seem to string together. I'm sure I'll figure it out at some point.

Same for me, i peeked at rank 2 but currently rank 3, and mostly 50% hunters in ~30 games.

I've met 2 mages, both undertaker deck.

My current deck isn't that bad against hunter. The games I lose are a real massacre with nothing I could do, but I'm pretty sure I'm above 50% winrate... Ironicaly, what kills me is the healadins/ tempo priests who constantly wipe my board and heal the damage I dealt.
