After browsing similar topics, I found an interesting thread that pretty much confirmed by suspicions. The game code / logic seems to always be waiting for a reply from the server to render animations.
Ex. You play a land, it freezes mid screen and doesn't resolve. The game wont resolve the action until it receives confirmation from the server. Any number of reasons could be causing the issue and it could be the host / server or either player.
As a player, the best thing you can try to do is play on a clean hard line without a lot of other traffic, to try to rule out latency on your end but, my suspicion still lies with the host, MTG:A servers and, game logic.
What I don't understand is why there isn't an in game solution to reconnect. If the server detects connection issues, the client side should notify, save match and, attempt reconnect.
Happening pretty much constantly. Internet connection keeps testing very strong.

I have the same problem here. I want to be refunded in at least one Draft Entry.
I lost two games for te same reason. Just to have an idea my draft was going so well that i hited 4 wins with only one lost. That one lost is the only one fair.
The two other ones is because of this ridiculous bug. It's exactly this. We do have connection. Even if you try to close the game and open it fast, it still cost you one lost. Absolutly unfair.
Mtg Arna crush during a draft, give me a network error, and i lost the draft.
I had the same issue, cost me my last match in a traditional draft, which cost me any good rewards.
I have the same issue **** near all the time. This **** needs to be fixed.
Just happened to me, I was on my way to winning my 3rd game in sealed, now it's a loss. I not only want my loss deleted, I also want my almost secure win. I am SO close to quitting this game after losing interest in the Mastery Pass and it feeling more and more like a drag.
Same thing happening to me right now
happened to me just now.
I dad a network error popup, then the game freezed in my opponent turn.
couldn't play anything, also couldn't concede.
ihad to shut down
Got a network error and the game didn't resolve and had to use Alt+F4 to exit and restart, lost due to Arena taking tooooo long to restart. WTF!!!
second time tonight resulting in a match loss... I feel like I am getting scammed...posting here feels pretty dang pointless...merge my last post per your directions on the previous page
also, my opponent was at 13 life
this network error resulted in a match loss.. I was one mana short of a kicked fight with fire and a jade light ranger with 2 counters and a brazen borrower on the field it was at my opponents end step when the error occurred. I feel pretty dang cheated here... please advise
Had a similar issue.
here is my issue, does a network error and we just upgraded to a new router, game crashes very frequently without our internet even being down

"problem when communicating whit server"
For me, this error occurred happened just after my opponent declared attackers. As far as I can tell, all my other networked applications are working.
I was unable to concede the match either and had to force quit after a few minutes.
I was on turn 3 with my draft deck and this error occured for precisely 5-6 minutes. Just long enough to cost me the match.
This is happening today. Connection is fine, I've restarted, and no other issues with other online applications.
When I start Play and Brawl, the network error message always shows up.
I re-downloaded MTGA, but I have yet this prioblem.
