MTG Arena - Wont launch

I installed mtg arena, self updating version from lutris website,

The game has been successfully installed, but the launcher hangs right after start.

This is wine log:

It seems to be stun in an infinite loop, trying to download a file which fails every time from some reason that is not logged.

So i managed to solve it, right after posting this.

My issue was that the wine image which is provided by lutris was missing winhttp, I solved it by installing the library into wine.
