iPhone-wielding Magic: The Gathering players rejoice!  As of March 25, you will be able to tap into Magic: The Gathering - Arena on your devices, bringing the game to millions more mobile users worldwide.

While Arena on mobile may be exciting for some, please note that it isn't exactly perfect.  WotC is aware of some issues with the software.

"Note that we're aware of an occasional issue that makes you appear offline even when you're online," says the company.  "When you're in this state, you can still send messages to your friends, but they will not be able to respond.  They will be able to accept your challenges but will not be able to challenge you from the social menu.  Direct challenges are unaffected by this issue."

While the company is working on the issue, they recommend the following should users find themselves stuck by it:

  1. Instead of exiting the game, log out completely and log back in.
  2. Open your social menu and toggle between offline and online.

WotC is also including new performance updates for Android devices as well, such as tablet support.
