Additional Card Styles: This update made a whole list of card styles available for individual purchase as well. See the patch notes at the bottom of this article for more details.
By far the most functional improvement included in this patch is the addition of a spell counter to Pteramander while on the field, as seen here:
Mono-blue players of Magic: The Gathering Arena, rejoice. Now, while Pteramander is in play, you can easily keep track of the number of instant and sorceries in your graveyard without opening it up and scrolling through it turn after turn. Just subtract the displayed number on Pteramander from your lands in play, and you have the Adapt cost.
