I find it to be a pay-to-win game of the highest calibre, with decent cards being hard to get, and most cards not being very unique. It also has a huge number of cards, which impedes familiarity. I prefer Elements massively. The asynchronous pVp and Oracle in Elements also make the game easy enough to be enjoyable before you've figured a deck out, and the upgrade system keeps the advanced cards out of the new players' way, so as to keep the game more fair for new players throughout its duration. Hearthstone is pretty though, I'll give it that.

I love how synchronised the pvp is. However, (and this may be because the only other card game like this i've played is elements, but i hate the fact that mana doesn't carry over. the long card names annoy me as well. I'll still play it a bit, but I prefer elements by far.

I find it has the same problem of elements. The good cards are really tedious to get.

(sorry elements lovers)

heroic noth is not doable with my base cards (minimum of nonbasic cards is inner fire, but you're way better off with freezemage(requires Alexstraza amongst other fancy stuff that I dont own)).
Otherwise normal was probably a bit too easy (and arguably heroic, too) and each wing can very well be completed within 2 hours including heroic (its just too short). Stuff like plague that is equal to unleash the hounds, hex and flame strike combined shouldnt exist imo and it almost feels like the AI intentionally makes mistakes so you have a chance to win against the op effects in heroic mode.
Also 700 gold is quite expensive for 11 cards and ~2 hours of content.
Thats it with the bad stuff I have to say to naxx (sorry for the ppl who still cannot access it). The environment was nice, I really enjoyed most of the challenges and I liked working around the bosses inheritant weaknesses. And of course (most important thing imo) we got some awesome (and some not so awesome) cards.

I've only been playing hearthstone for a week, so I haven't gotten the 700 gold for the second wing.  I beat the first wing normal on my first day, and the first wing on heroic on my second day, though.  The first boss I didn't even have to change my deck for; I beat it the first try.  The second one was really hard, even with a custom built deck.  (at least from my meager collection)  The third one I beat on the second try (the first I lost miserably due to the unexpected hero power; the second I totally abused the AI being stupid with its hero power by using cheap battlecry minions).  So far I've been playing mostly mage.  I tried paladin a couple times, but I lost five straight pvp with it, whereas mage I'm winning probably 3/4 of the time.  I did druid a couple times in pvp for the daily quests.  (today I had two dailies built up, one was win 2 games with druid/rogue and the other was win 2 games with druid/hunter, so I did druid in pvp and won attempts 2 and 3 and best both quests at once)  I haven't played any other classes beyond the tutorials yet.  (level 23 mage, nothing else past about level 2-3)

First impressions are that mage, hunter, and druid seem pretty good.  Paladin seems really bad.  I see a lot of warlocks, but I always beat them.  I don't see many shamans or warriors.  I always beat other mages because since I have been playing it myself, I know what card options they have, at least in the more common cards.  Usually when I lose it's to hunter or druid; if I lose to someone else, it's usually because they have a card I haven't seen yet.  (like I lost to a warrior yesterday because he had some incredible guy that had charge and enrage that I'd never seen before, and he played that card that did 1 damage to it and gave it +2 attack and instagibbed me with it)

It seems there are bugs with getting the second wing, anyways. One of my friends has the gold for the unlock but it's not letting him.

What kind of deck are you using? And not just class. Is it mostly spell based? Creature based?

The mage deck I've been using in pvp:

1) 2x Elven archer (1/1, battlecry: does 1 damage) (cheap damage)
2) 2x arcane explosion (1 damage to all enemy creatures) (cheap damage, better with geomancers)
2) 2x frostbolt (3 damage + freeze to a target) (good removal spell, can freeze weapons too)
2) 2x kobold geomancer (2/2, +1 spell damage)
2) 2x novice engineer (1/1, battlecry: draw a card)
3) 2x arcane intellect (draw 2 cards spell)
3) 2x frost nova (freeze all enemy creatures)
3) 1x ice barrier (secret: +8 armour when next attacked) (only own one of these, would consider using a 2nd)
3) 1x acolyte of pain (1/3, draw a card when it takes damage) (only own one of these, it's decent, but would probably replace if I had something better)
4) 2x fireball (spell, 6 damage to any target) (this is awesome, kills almost anything or works great to the face)
4) 2x chillwind yeti (4/5) (really cheap for its stats)
4) 2x sen'jin shieldmasta (3/5 taunt) (really cheap for its stats)
4) 2x water elemental (3/6, freezes anything it attacks) (really cheap for its stats)
5) 2x gurubashi berserker (2/7, +3 attack whenever it takes damage) (combos with your own hero power, zap it to deal 1 damage to it, also combos with elvish archer.  opponents often seem to miss this, but I haven't gotten past rank 19 yet so maybe they just suck at that point and don't see something that obvious)
5) 2x nightblade (4/4, battlecry: enemy hero takes 3 damage) (decent, but would probably replace with something better if i had it)
7) 2x flamestrike (4 damage to opponent's creatures) (this is awesome, especially with geomancers)
