MTG Arena Stuck in infinite queue - how to fix

Screenshot by Pro Game Guides

When you've been in an MTG Arena queue for several minutes, you may be experiencing the infinite queue bug. To fix this issue, see if you can press the Cancel button directly above the queue timer. Once you cancel your current queue, try queueing for a match again. MTG Arena is known to freeze when you press Cancel, especially if you're experiencing this glitch in particular. If this occurs, close the application through your device's taskbar.

MTG Arena may prevent you from closing the game through your taskbar, but you can press Alt and F4 at the same time to shut down the game. If this game is extremely stubborn, refusing to close the application, try opening Task Manager. You can do this by either searching in your taskbar or pressing CtrlShift, and Esc all at once. From here, type MTGA while the window is in focus, and this should reveal the MTG Arena application. To shut it down, right-click and select End Task. Once you close down the game, try restarting MTG Arena and attempting to queue once again.
