I don’t know how well Shadow Era competes with the venerable Magic: The Gathering (I haven’t played in a while), but this game is fun, and your skill really matters.
You start with a free, prebuilt deck (of your choice). You can buy 15-Card booster packs (though you never have to, and you can also earn them in play).
I’ve played about 8-10 games, and a couple of them have been pretty epic.
I’m diggin’ it!
This is one of the heroes - they’re the only ones that get to use the shadow magic shown in purple on the bottom left. If your hero dies, it’s game over.
This shot shows Jasmine Rosecut attacking Moonstalker (not the sword slashing through Moonstalker). Nice animations add a solid atmosphere to the game.
As with any CCG, buying booster packs (or more prebuilt starters) is an option. You can earn points in game to buy them, or you can pick ‘em up at 99 cents a pop.

(Note: it’s also available for iPad, on which it’s brilliant! It’s soon to be released for Android, Mac, and PC for stand-alone downloads)
