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
