Online Card Trading Games?

Do you know of an online card trading game where you "combine" cards to make a new card? Alternatively, any online game where one component + another component = something more powerful?

I've spec'd out a new online card trading game. Before I enter into a contract for development, I'd like to be certain that previous games exist in this genre. By showing a precedent of more than one game, I can feel more confident that legal issues will not occur.
A little background:
This came in response to a game that I enjoy playing. Recent changes by the developers have had a large backlash by players. The devs' responses have been rude or condescending.
I would like to take the original game idea (the part the players liked), expand upon it (new trading area ideas) and release it to the social networking masses. However, the combining of cards is something new to me. I want to be certain that the aforementioned development team can't cry "FOUL!" and end up with attorneys at my door.
I'm not asking for legal advise. Just some help from gamers to see if I can point fingers at other games and show that these guys weren't the first to think of 1 + 1 = 2.
Many, many thanks!
