What are the best card strategy games on iPhone?

My new year's resolution is to try different types of games than I would normally play (puzzle, arcade, strategy, sim) so that I can broaden my experience of gaming and knowing that there must be some gems out there waiting for me to relinquish my hard .

I love playing card games in the real world so I thought I'd find out what is worth downloading. Please TA forum people, tell me what I need to download and why?

Thanks

Slim pickins lemme tell you.

Right now Orions is your best game, and it is truely awesome.

A game coming up sometime soon (not sure exactly when) should be pretty awesome, and it's called Shadow Era. Supposed to be very MtG like, but pretty unique in it's own ways. But yeah, you're not going to find many card games.

If those are the type of games you are looking for. You mean like MtG (Magic the Gathering) and shit like that right?>

I'd hold off until these come out. Both great games, my preference would be Shadow Era out of the two but I plan on having both.

yeah that's perfect. i have tried Orions but understanding the card strategy is challenging. More perseverance needed and less bugs as it freezes sometimes on my 2nd gen Touch. Thanks for the advice.

I've been playing Stack & Deploy (realtime ccg) and Soul Card Master to pass the time before Orions 2 is released. Fun times.

Thanks

I like the retro space theme in Stack and Deploy but I reckon SCM master is the one for me, and a lite version too )
