Please add formats like Modern and Legacy into Arena eventually. There are large amounts of people like me who would very much like to play them and put money into the game in order to play them, yet refuse to play MTGO (because of its horrible UI) or paper (I prefer playing lots of matches daily, and in a videogame rather than a physical card game with social interaction).
I am sure that you would make great amounts more profit if you added such older formats to Arena. There must be very large amounts of people like me who are willing to spend money on Arena to play them.
And if such an amazing decision were to be made, could you communicate to the playerbase on the plans to do that eventually, instead of having us wonder about the future of Arena for years and years and only ever getting info right before releases. This seems to be a huge issue in general, for example even though we are supposed to at least get all Pioneer legal sets into Arena, we have not heard a single word about Shadows over Innistrad remastered yet, despite Amonkhet coming a year ago and Kaladesh something like 7-8 months ago. Can't you at least communicate to us on what the current plans and schedule are for such things?
Please create a new playlist: Arena Modern. Its a pretty simple idea and I think it would go a very long way. I can almost guarantee that loads of players would flock to this new format given that many of these same players are currently extremely dissatisfied by the offerings available like Historic and Explorer.
Make legal in it everything that is currently coded on Arena and UNBANNED in Modern like Teferi Time Raveler, Nexus of Fate, Wilderness Reclamation, Blood Moon, Counterspell, Ragavan Nimble Pilferer ect...
Anything BANNED or non legal in current modern, keep out of this new format. So BAN Uro, Titan of Nature's Wrath, Dark Ritual, Channel, Swords to Plowshares ect...
Plus code new cards that exist in Modern into the format as time goes on. Put them on the client through Historic or Arena Modern anthologies or whole sets even. Anything, but put them onto the client.
I think this would be a huge hit for the community!
I would like the community to make Wizard understand how many missed opportunities they are having with Arena. Pioneer intentionally distant, Historic ruined by Digital Cards. It would take very little to make Arena their flagship platform. With the addition of just 25 (+ Fetches), there would even be a pseudo-modern. It would just take the will to do it.
