MTG Arena has a dedicated support page that updates in real-time and lets players know if any problems are impacting the game. The site breaks down the performance of each platform, including Windows, macOS, and mobile devices. It also displays the status of the game, logins, matches, social, store, and forums. 

The site even showcases issues from previous days and highlights any scheduled periods of maintenance. Maintenance does require downtime in some instances, but smaller updates are typically introduced without impacting game performance. 

If each feature is operational, there’s likely no widespread issue preventing you from enjoying the game. Make sure your local connection is working normally and there’s no outage with your internet service. 

Players can also check the official MTG Arena Twitter account to see if any issues have been reported. Customer support typically responds quickly to any questions, so feel free to reach out if you’re still experiencing issues. These two sources should help you figure out the problem and determine the steps needed to get back into the game.
