Anyone know of similar games?
Online Cardgames? Cardgame video games even if single player only? "Like this" is very vague. Bare in mind, card games have different rules for each game, some more similar to Hearthstone, some fairly distant.
First one that comes to mind is obviously Magic the Gathering: Online, but you have to buy packs in that. IIRC Duel of the Planeswalker costs to buy the game but no cost for cards (unlocked ingame, no packs).
Yu Gi Oh Online, IIRC, is free, it's the one my GF plays and from what I've seen it's quite true to the fun physical cardgame. Also, the DS games are fairly good.
After that you have things like Everquest's cardgame, etc. I'd honestly recommend doing research into card games and finding one with rules and aesthetic that appeals to you.

I don't know if it's still popular, but Magic Workstation was a platform for cardgames, mostly Magic: The Gathering. You have to download a database of cards and can then build a deck out of those (all free) and play, only thing is that it is a bit clunky and the visuals are pretty meh.
theres heaps of games going the F2P method.
There's a whole F2P section on steam that has heaps of games. check it out!

I just downloaded Duels of the Planeswalker the other day. Only $10 and you don't have to pay for cards, can unlock them as you play. It's been pretty fun thus far! I used to play Magic back in the day, but a lot of the kids I played with stopped and so I eventually did too, plus it was expensive to keep up with. Duel of Champions looks a bit closer to Hearthstone, I'm downloading that as I type this to try it out!
As I said I started playing Duel of Champions about a week ago, and holy shit that game is so much fun! I'm hooked, have been playing whenever I get some free time. Only downside is some of the duels can go a bit long, I've been in some upwards of 30 minutes. So, you can't necessarily sit down for 15 minutes to bust out a duel. But, if you have some time to spare it's really really fun. I'd recommend people try it out! And feel free to shoot me a friend request if you do. My deck is still fairly weak because I'm not spending any money on it, I'm just buying packs with the gold and seals you get from duels and the campaign. But, even with that I've already been able to buy a box just by completing the first part of the campaign which is 120 cards right there! My name on the game is Ralike if you want to add me. I'm using a Necrotic deck which I'm absolutely loving.
Not exactly a pure online card game, but Battleforge is a mix between strategy and a card game where you use cards to spawn minions and use attacks
Yo dawg! I heard you liked bases, so i put a base in your base, so i can base while you base
