@unixfox they're both in the AUR, so you should be able to build discord canary.

@DarkShadow44 You've right, I can't build discord canary because libc++abi has been removed.

libc++ and libc++abi seem to have been removed.

Sorry for flagging the package out of date, I was being stupid and pressed the button too fast. It works just fine.

@WoefulDerelict Yeah, I edited the .desktop file before building this (well I build PTB but still).

@cazzar Why not fix this in the .desktop file? Remove absolute path in the .desktop files for the discord packages and use relative.

The _branch variable wasn't done as expected, though as I was in a bit of a hurry to update, and the original intention is to allow a similarity between the three pkgbuilds by primarily having the _branch, pkgname and any release dependent variables.
The better implementation being in discord-ptb

mralext20: I suspect that directing users to discord-developers may be folly now that there is a dedicated server for linux. Sending users to discord-linux and directing them to visit the #linux-support channel is probably the best advice.

cazzar: The inclusion of an additional variable, _branch, is entirely superfluous in this package as well as in discord and discord-ptb as the same data already exists in ${pkgname}. You could easily replace ${_branch} in the source line of each package with ${pkgname} and it would work exactly the same. Granted discord-ptb would require replacement of 'discord${_branch}' with ${pkgname}.

Brottweiler: This is caused by the Icon entry in the .desktop file referencing the absolute path for the icon installed as part of the package instead of a relative path. This is how the .desktop file was configured by the developer and what is distributed in the archive. Swapping out the absolute path in Icon for a relative reference would solve this (Icon=discord-canary). The developer and packager have not made it easy to apply different icons to the various discord release channels. It should be noted that icon bears the same name across all three discord releases. Adding this functionality is relatively trivial to do during packaging; however, it would require all themes to adopt the same nomenclature for the alternate icons in order to work.

You can find an example for discord-canary that would allow the icon to be changed by the paper-icon-theme you linked here:
