Running up against several of the current high-performing/flavor of the day decks (RDW, Esper, Elementals) is going to happen more often than not, because they perform well.
You know what? I enjoyed them all
Quote from SardoNespa »In general (70-80% of the time), what happens is this:
1) The matchmaker looks at your deck.
2) The matchmaker will determine your deck's makeup and match you against the deck that is best able to counter everything you are doing.
3) If you do not have all the best cards, min/maxing your deck with every rare you need to optimize your outcome, you will be placed against someone who has that.
4) Once the match-up is determined, the matchmaker will shuffle your deck to provide the worst possible outcome (mana flooding, mana choking, wrong lands in multi-color decks, all high cost spells early on, etc.)
5) The matchmaker will give your opponent an optimal layout of hands and deck shuffling for perfect tempo and play optimization.

Quote from SardoNespa » I swear its like I am up against bots, with decks perfectly matched to counter my deck AS WELL AS my opponents getting perfectly ordered cards vs. me getting mana abused.

I spent the first few weeks getting spanked with my newb decks, that's a given, but didn't really experience any really powerful decks.
