Magic the Gathering: Arena current version
Starting the game, logging in, downloading data, playing the game.
What does not
game would not download data fully, had to relaunch several times
if the game crashes while downloading data, relaunch mtga.exe and it will pick up where it left off.
if the game crashes before downloading the data, run the installer again.
What was not tested
I tested every feature of the game
GPU: Nvidia GTX 1070
Desktop: gnome 3.38.5
Windowing System: X11
Processor: AMD Threadripper 2950x
OS: Debian 11 bullseye
I had to use nvidia-drivers package to get the game to run correctly, with default drivers the game crashed after login.

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:

wine reg ADD 'HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Wine\X11 Driver' /v UseTakeFocus /d 'N' /f
