Collectible Card Games With Deck Building And Battling

Collectible Card Games have proven popular on iOS. There are a couple of varieties that either emphasize deck building or battling, though many merge the two together. The genre is best known for Pokemon, Magic, and Yu-Gi-Oh in the real world, but has gained notoriety on iOS with Hearthstone and popular franchise themed versions.
