I was playing Eredan Arena (an online game) recently, and it struck me how simple, fun and quick it is. Basically, both players have a deck of 5 Heroes, draw 3 at the start. The attacking player (which should be called priority player, IMHO) chooses which Hero to play first, then the defending player chooses who to use. Both players roll 6d4, with the faces being Red, Yellow, Blue and Attack. Red, Yellow and Blue are needed to trigger the abilities of your Hero (each Hero has 3 abilities), and Attack simply deals damage equal to the Strength of your Hero. You can reroll your dice yahtzee-style.

Is there anything similar?

Hmm... not quite that simple, but still a quick and fun duel game:

Rune Age is a deck building game, but the decks usually end up pretty small relative to others DBGs.

There is also an attrition die that is rolled quite often.

I have just ordered Ninja Taisen the other day, and this could be what you're looking for. Very simple, 2 sets of cards, 3 dice and a roll and move mechanic that really lends to strategic thinking. All the combat is worked out with a rock, paper, scissors mechanic that really is awesome. Plus it's beautiful!

If you're having hull problems I feel bad for you son, I've got 99 problems but a breach ain't one.
