Many performance issues and bugs have finally been resolved with the Aug. 1 patch following the M20 update on MTG Arena, according to Wizards of the Coast.
Complaints had been rolling in for the last week from the MTG community regarding disconnections from matches, suspended cards during gameplay, and the next/resolve button disappearing. With the Aug. 1 patch, all these issues are reported as being resolved.
Additional bug fixes that were repaired in the Aug. 1 update on MTGA include cosmetics like having your avatar that’s been chosen display properly during a Direct Challenge match and the Mu Yanling sleeve displaying correctly. In addition, the Master Pass pet will no longer re-enable after it has been disabled by the player.
The ban list for the upcoming Standard Shakeup (MTGA summer Chronicles event) has also seen a few adjustments with several cards being removed from the ban list and others added. Players can find the original (and full) list of banned cards for Standard Shakeup here.
