Only had a very quick go. Seems nicely polished; always a good sign.

Shall have to look again later. Worth a go.

Ok I've been playing this game non-stop since I've downloaded it. Fantastic!!

Artwork/Visuals are gorgeous with a great style and details. Extremely polished.
Audio and music fits perfectly, really haunting and beautiful with satisfying effects when battling.
Game length is long enough to develop strategy but short enough to play a few rounds during a lunch break.

The cards are split up between 4 factions and a Neutral faction.
Each faction provides for a unique twist on gameplay:

Swarm of the East - focuses on overwhelming with low cost cards, and lots of "on death" modifiers.
Winter Pact - focuses on mana generation and a "freeze" mechanic.
Shadowfen - focuses on powerful cards that have a risk to yourself, and "poison" mechanics. Voodoo stuff.
Ironclad - focuses on machine cards, with a lot of automated damage dealers and "link up" mechanics.
Neutral - a variety of support and attack cards that round out any deck.

This is an oversimplification but you get the idea. Lots of interesting strategies to develop.
Easy to understand but very deep as you start to work it all out. Meta game will emerge.

All in all a wonderful title that I hope gains a lot more traction in its soft launch. I highly recommend checking it out if you have an account in any of the soft launch regions.
You can draw similarities to Majestica, but only on the surface. I find this title to be more accessible and enjoyable that Majestica, just IMHO.

Check it out! 👍

There are some AI games to obtain cards from each faction, a few for each one.
The rest is multiplayer, which is the focus of this game.

wow, this is a pretty good promise. Very polished and well-done. There's also a lot of varied cards. I really hope to see this coming out soon.
