Magic the Gathering: Arena current version
Installing and playing the game. No winetweaks needed.
What does not
The default .exe installer. See workaround.
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.)

What was not tested
Store transactions and special events
I installed and configured the game based on the test result: https://appdb.winehq.org/objec...

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
