What you said is the epitome of bullsh!t.
To use Sirlin's favorite fighting game analogies,
"Just because jump exists doesn't mean having a projectile isn't OP!"
Yet that's EXACTLY
what it means. Cards have counters. And if you don't feel like using those counters, that's not evidence of a card's overpoweredness. That's evidence of you being a bad player or a bad file designer.
Know why Alteil is in the doldrums? Precisely
because the testing team is killing metas going by your trash philosophy of "just because counters exist doesn't mean it's not OP". Ruuca was defeatable. So was Dilate. So was Bringer (in fact Bringer never frightened me, not even before a single one of his nerfs).
And I'm not talking about ridiculously obscure counters, either. Splashing Gaiessoul is a strong strategy for either Refess or Gowen. And if there was a falk/lawt proxy, it would also be for Falkow. With Falkow, WK uses storm wiz/volfied, serpent uses frog, and I believe strike wyvern can also engage Greg out of his focus (forget if it's random or not). Gowen has sakura, which anything outside a Gowen rush should be running, and Gowen rush, as worthing demonstrated, has pixies to lock him out.
This whole "to the nerfmobile" every single time someone (especially
a horrible player like Callonia, who prides himself on playing deliberately bad files) is precisely one of the reasons Alteil is in the crapper right now--because it's just not a game very conducive to establishing a metagame and having the best players win.
