So, I'm looking for a TCG to get into while I'm waiting for Hex to get more features. I played Hearthstone briefly in the closed beta, and the game was alright.
My real question is, is it possible to get into the game without spending a crapton of money (with crapton being anything over $10 ;D ), and still being able to be competitive in PVP matches?
I've been thinking about getting into MTG again, but I haven't played since my Freshman year of High School in 2006, and have forgotten most of the little that I learned about it. Also, if I did get into it, I'd have to go virtual as I don't want to spend 40-50 minutes driving to the nearest gameshop everytime I want to play. Plus, it would be expensive. I've heard that I would need to spend at least $30 or so to get a decent deck in the 2015 version of vMTG, but the 2014 version for $10 is still decent so that might be an option.
Or I could try another virtual TCG. What I'm looking for is minimal money investment and time investment to get a decent deck, a large playerbase so I never have to get bored playing the same people over and over, and feature complete (IE can't be in the "development" stage anymore).
