Magic the Gathering: Arena current version
The game itself works perfectly. I have not encountered anything that doesn't work in the game itself.
What does not
The official installer from the website is currently not installing anything with wine. It just finishes without having actually installed something.
There are some issues with the focus of the mouse when switching to a different application/desktop.

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
