Magic: The Gathering - Duels of the Planeswalkers 2013 on Steam.
Never played these before, but holy cow...is it just a game designed to sell you more stuff?
Only in three ways:
1) Expansions (which are pretty affordable, really)
2) They release a new bloody version every year like EA does sports games
3) Purchasable foil cards (I don't get it either)
Despite #2, I've still bought it three years running now, usually on sale.
Duels of the Planeswalkers is actually a refreshing change from the IRL Magic Experience, where you need to spend hundreds of dollars to stand a chance against a decent player, or drop $20+ in cards just to participate in a sealed deck tournament.
