MTG: Arena black screen with orange partickes in the bottom right

After the game installs properly using the latest installer, when I launch it I get a black screen,
with orange particle effects in the bottom right corner,
and when I hover over the middle-ish of the screen I can hear button-hovering noises.
Also, It starts downloading, as I can see on my network monitor.

See video:

I have not played this game ever, and have heard things are breaking every update.
Any way to make it work?

Did you enable DXVK for the game?

Whenever I reinstall the game, DXVK isn’t enabled for it.

There is slight issue with that…
My laptop has a quite old gpu(Nvidia NVS 5100M), from 2010…
So it ain’t gonna do DXVK.

So when I enable it(or even D9VK), and press save, it doesn’t save it.

Any other options?
