Hello everyone.
I am looking for a new game to add up to my collection, specifically a card game. I would like it to be MTG'ish. But here's the thing - i don't like spending a lot of money. I do not like any of the FFG's LCG's

I've been considering Blue Moon: Legends and Summoner Wars, but i think it's just not what I'm looking for.

A pefect game would:
-not require me to buy many pricy expantions
-be complex, but not too much, as my girlfriend likes more casual games
-be all about combat and casting powerfull spells

Thank you for all the answers in advance

How about Mage Wars Academy or Ashes: Rise of the Phoenixborn?

Bye

Epic from White Wizard Games might be a decent purchase for you.

So I've consulted with my gf and we narrowed these games to Epic and Blue Moon, but we are still open for new ideas, because both games have their cons:

-Blue Moon is not a direct combat game, it's great and complete with all the cards (also there's a huge discount on it in my local store)

-Epic Card Game, it's fun and cheap but I can't seem to find the cardboard box that's bought seperately in Poland, and I know I'll need it and that's a huge disadvantage for me. Also I've heard there's no life indicators like in Star Realms and just a few tokens

What do you guys have to say about that, maybe there's something else? Also you can take a look at games that I own, maybe that's gonna help

Summoner Wars is awesome, but it's more like wizard chess than what it sounds like you're looking for.

Maybe Seasons? I haven't played it, but I've heard good things.

From what I've seen I think Ashes would be a good choice. Would also highly recommend Star Realms. It's not similar to MTG but it's cheap and really fun.

We do have Star Realms and we love it, but it's a great deckbuilder, not a skirmish game. I've read some more about the Blue Moon and I think there's more to it than I thought at first. We've decided to go with it right now, because it's on a real discount (normally it's for about 42 €, now it's for 18 €). Ashes looks great and I would love it but my gf wouldn't like it and it's a little pricy, but it's on my wish-list. Thanks for all the help guys, all great games here

My girlfriend and i have really been enjoying Mystic Vale. I think it ticks all of your boxes, except for the combat thing. Creating and casting a powerful spell is certainly possible.
