An opinion from someone who likes Magic the gathering.

Summary: I'll keep this short and simple. Good strategy, but not very much like Magic. The creatures die fast in this game, unless you have plenty of item cards to make them stronger. Or their HP gets low and you have to switch them out for a different creature in your hand, so you can keep the property you upgraded. When the other player lands on that property, they have a choice to fight that creature or just pay you.
Summary: I had Culdcept on the PS2 and this is as much fun as that version, but with better graphics. This isn't a game for the impatient. You could play a match for 2 hours and still lose, however you still gain new cards and hopefully more knowledge. I enjoy every second of it, I highly recommend this game to anyone that enjoys board games, RPGs, and collectable card games.
Summary: This is a great strategic blend between Magic the Gathering, Monopoly, and basic Stock Market trading. Be forewarned - a modest game can take HOURS to complete; however, if you are into deep strategy and complex, long form gameplay you won't be disappointed.
Summary: I love this game. The art is fun and there is a lot of variance in the strategy required in the gameplay. It's kind of like Magic: The Gathering and chess had a love child. Mythical creatures, played against each other in a strategic campaign to take over the game board and win the match. So fun!
Summary: We got this game after playing the Culdcept game for PS2. At the time, I was just introduced to Magic, The Gathering and this game was described to me as a mashup of Magic and Monopoly. Well, after five years, this is one of the few video games that I would go back and play again. In fact, I just dusted it off the shelf recently and had been playing it over the last few weeks.
Summary: Love tactical games and this one really puts a good twist into it with the cards and abilities. Huge fan of Magic the Gathering and will try all other cards games and when it involve a video games many are not very good but this one does it well.
