What CCG's Offer a Player's Guide Like MTG?

I'm interested in learning and investing in different CCG's, but I noticed that many do not have player's guides like MTG that shows colored pictures of the entire set. Are there any more like this?

These days, online guides and list are much more likely, and most of the major CCGs (or LCGs, etc) seem to have them. Certainly, I can rattle off one for Netrunner, Legend of the Five Rings both old and new, and of course Magic's own Gatherer off the top of my head.

I would imagine that most CCGs expand to quickly to make it practical. Wizards has the resources and the fan base, so its a different matter.

I don't think even most deck builders have guides like that! (exception: Puzzle Strike)

As AliasiSudonomo said, online is probably best.

It seems Final Fantasy may have one, because a friend talked about finally getting one he'd ordered a while ago, but as others have said, games move to quick for the companies to want to put them out. As much as I liked having the Magic ones on my shelf to look at.

Yeah, I don't think there would be any card-game running nowadays that wouldn't have an online visual spoiler / card database (be it official or fanmade).

Granted, those are both kinda deadish games. Easier to do.

With Magic, the Internet is your strategy guide; there's more content on the subject than you could read for players of all levels and types, and while the bundle packs they release with each set do include a visual spoiler guide changing details of wording and rules means any paper guide will become obsolete over time.

Are there any CCGs other than magic that aren't "deadish"?
