Magic the Gathering: Arena current version
The game installs and runs as expected.
What does not
In-game purchases do not work (see Magic: The Gathering Arena shows a white window when trying to add fund).
If you intend to never pay for playing, the rating would be Gold.
In case you want buy cards or other in-game items you need access to an MTG Arena installation on an officially supported OS to do the purchase. Then the rating is Silver.
Without registry changes you cannot use alt-tab to switch to another program and back (see the "Workaround: Mouse focus issue" entry in the "HowTo / Notes" section).

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.
