Additionally, in case of potential delays and issues that can affect the gameplay, you’ll also be notified.

You also have a second option. That is to check MTG Arena Status Page. Game, Matches, and Logins systems should all be marked “operational” in order for you to run Arena smoothly.

While no downtime is expected, you still need to restart the client to get the Wilds of Eldraine patch.
