Single player content is extremely easy. Also, random effects are not random at all. There is a much higher percentage of specific things happening compared to other.
There are multiple reports of people who have clicked on items to check prices and accidentally bought them with gold and real money.
The game has a very toxic ranking system. Due to the extreme grindy nature, players will always play the most meta deck possible by searching online. This happens from a very low rank, all the way to the top. This purposeful lack of balance makes for a very unhealthy game state.
The grindy competitive nature encourages bad manners in order to get an edge. It's common for players to waste their turns when they are about to lose; cheat if they discover some exploit; and constantly search for an edge in the way of meta-decks.
If you don't play frequently enough, your ranking might be too low compared to your friend's. Not having the most recent cards and Sets might discourage you to play against them on friendly matches.
You feel that your purchased cards will lose value when the yearly rotation happens. You also feel like you've been left behind by not playing throughout the year and collecting cards from the previous expansions; battle passes; etc.
It releases 3 expansions a year, plus 2 mini-expansions. Not only that, but the old cards rotate yearly, making only the last 3 expansions be relevant at the end of each cycle.
