I wouldn't say it's P2W, it's more like P2HYPB (Pay to help you play better).  I have a deck full of ragnaros, dragons, and legendaries...It does horrible, it will lose like 90% of the time against any deck, even basic decks.  Cards are easy to get in this game.  If you pay money, you just want to skip the month or two it takes to get enough cards to have several great decks.

A casual player would probably have to play for at least half a year to have  3 or 4 competitive decks.

No its not !

You can achieve everything without money.

Your definition is wrong, or every trading card game would be ptw.

This. But it's not so bad, because you can relatively quickly make a decent deck. And the game is a lot of fun, so you can overlook the P2W factor as it's not too pronounced. If you play a crazy amount you'll probably get the cards you want anyway. Eventuallly.

You will win more if you pay, as you will have better cards. So by definition it is unquestionably Pay2Win if you fork out that cash.

But if you just can't handle that it's P2W, there's Arena mode, which has no P2W elements. Unfortunately som grinding required to play this mode.

Currently playing: Divinity: Original Sin, FTL, Hearthstone and Skyrim.
Eagerly anticipating: Camelot Unchained, Elite: Dangerous, Legend of Grimrock 2 and Star Citizen.

BTW 

Its nothing wrong with paying for some boosters, if you like the game.

The development of this games costs a ton, so if you play the game a lot you better spend some money to reward their work !
