It is not a "very specific" scenario it is quite an extensive list of spells that ignore mage slayer completely.

Those are just off the top of my head and just spells on the wizard list in the PHB
A caster does not have to know that you have the feat to protect against it, any smart caster is going to assume their enemies have it and act accordingly.
If you are standing in their face with a melee weapon in your hand why would they cast fireball or lightning bolt when they could just cast darkness and leave you standing there, or force cage and take you out of the fight 100% of the time.
