Naxxramas is a floating cemetery from Warcraft's extensive lore, and players can use their favorite deck to battle the creepy bosses in the five different wings of Naxxramas. Similarly to the arena mode, there is a cost to entering Naxxramas’ wings, which can be paid with either in-game gold or real money, though how much it will cost is currently unknown.
