MTG Arena has a feature that lets people add other players to their friends list, enabling play between both parties.
This is accomplished through a friend request that is sent to an MTG Arena player’s username.
Typically this is difficult to do because there is a number that is required after the username. However, if you’ve posted your full username in a forum or shared it in another way where the full name becomes public, then it’s possible that you are receiving unwanted friend requests.
Fortunately you won’t need to abandon your MTG Arena profile and create a new one, as it’s possible to block all incoming friend requests in MTG Arena.
