Faeria is the extremely cool card-based strategy game where you build the board to battle on as you go. The developers have stated the free to play launch will happen in September.

Note: It doesn't have a Linux/SteamOS icon, but I assure you it has a Linux version.

You can currently buy in for £5.99 or £17.99 (to get extra cards, avatars and so on).

I love the game, I think it's a rather unique card-based strategy game and I am surprised more people aren't playing it. I think it's going to be a massive hit when they go free to play (which was always planned).

They have also just announced monthly cups, where you can win some money!

About the game (Official)
Following a successful Kickstarter that gathered more than 3,500 backers in 2013, Faeria was revamped to make it closer to our vision of “easy to learn, hard to master”.

Faeria combines the core values of Strategy Card Games together with a Living Board, giving you the ability to shape the board as you play to create mind-blowing strategies. Each game of Faeria is not only unique, beautiful and fast-paced but also highly competitive with upcoming features such as an observer mode and integrated tournaments. Article taken from

The Linux version is less well tested than the other ones, so they don't want to advertise full linux support just yet. You can install on linux without needing to opt in beta, though.
That said, I've used the Linux version for a while on ubuntu 14.04 now and it works just fine for me.

I've wanted this one for a while now. I really want a card game on my tower again (I'm a Solforge/Magic/Hearthstone fan too). I've been waiting for the game to leave Early Access and the Linux logo added in Steam. Looking forward to September now!

I've had it for a couple of months; it's good fun, except when the AI gets 5 more cards than you do and you get Campfires .

I expect it to refine further.

I very nearly backed this back then, I'll probably give it a shot when it goes free to play even though I prefer to play board games on a table.

Please make it more clear in the description when a game is in early access (and a tag to the article). Some people don't want to waste their time reading about games only to find out they are early access in the end. Thanks
