Magic the Gathering: Arena current version
The game starts normally and runs like native! All modes are smoothly playable and there are no graphics or gameplay bugs (only those that occur in the Windows version).
I play the game for almost 2 years on Linux and since the Wine version 6 it runs incredibly stable!

Make sure you use a wine version > 5.9. Prior versions suffer from a bug that causes the client to constantly crash when downloading the initial assets (https://bugs.winehq.org/show_b...). This has been fixed in wine versions > 5.9.
Other wine versions with known issues for MTGA:
After you moved your mouse outside the client or switched to a different virtual desktop, MTGA will not regain focus if you get back to the application.
To fix this focus issue you can add a registry key by running:
wine reg ADD 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver' /v UseTakeFocus /d 'N' /f
