Workarounds

Installed the game using the .msi from: https://forums.mtgarena.com/fo... (Instead of the default .exe installer.)

Ran the game using: wine $WINEPREFIX/drive_c/Program\ Files\ \(x86\)/Wizards\ of\ the\ Coast/MTGA/MTGA.exe (The .lnk created by the installer does not work.)

Configured the wine "desktop" to use a virtual desktop (to avoid issues with the game selecting the wrong monitor and not allowing me to change it). Also turned off automatic mouse capture. The settings I used look like this:

HowTo / Notes

Fixing the "Fatal error in gc, GetThreadContext failed" crash when downloading game files

It is possible to overcome the "Fatal error in gc, GetThreadContext failed" crash when downloading game files by using a patched version of wine. (see the discussion here https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=45546)

For those using lutris there is a build with the patch enabled available called: tkg-mtga-x.xx
