Magic the Gathering: Arena current version
I installed by copying over the MTGA folder from Windows as I found that a bit more reliable than installing from the installer or .msi.
Nothing much works. It frequently crashes on boot, it crashes when changing tabs in the application, it crashes after starting a game, and it crashes on ending a game.
It used to run very fine (previous wine, Fedora 30-ish) but at the moment it's hot garbage.
What does not
Crashes on almost all functionality.
I copied over the MTGA folder from Windows (Virtualbox).

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
