The developers of Magic: The Gathering Arena are listening to their community, and this statement has received another confirmation via the recent update. It includes a lot of changes players have been asking for, and one of the highlights is a fix for a serious problem that led to unwanted card duplicates. Thankfully, the developers have put an end to that.
The thing is that opening card packs would sometimes give you duplicates - which is obviously a good thing when you are trying to find a few copies of a certain card for your deck. Sadly, only four copies of a single card are allowed for a deck by the MTG rules and having a fifth one was obviously a pain since you could've gotten a different card of the same value. Luckily, the developers acknowledged that this situation was a problem and that it needed a fix. Starting with the recent update, once you've opened a card pack and received the fifth copy of a card it will automatically change into a different one - of the same value, of course. This new exchange system is only legit for rare and mythic cards.
In case you've run out of card-substitutes, the system will give you gems instead of an unwanted duplicate. The update has also brought to Arena the newest Ravnica Allegiance set, which is only going to hit tabletop MTG in a couple of days. The full patchnote is published on the official forums.
