Avacyn Restored Collation

Avacyn Restored is a large set with 101 commons, 60 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares, and three variations of each standard basic land. This is the normal size for a large set of this era. Foil cards are included in booster packs with advertised odds of 1 : 67 cards. The set was printed in English in the USA and Belgium.

Avacyn Restored was sold in 15 card booster packs (which contain an additional ad card). Booster boxes have 36 packs.

US Pack Anatomy

The US printing uses sequential collation with C1/C2 common collation.

Packs are back-facing and have 10 commons followed by 3 uncommons, a rare, an ad card, and a basic land. If there is a foil card, it will appear after the land, displacing a common.

10 Commons3 Uncommons1 Rare1 Ad Card1 Land
9 Commons3 Uncommons1 Rare1 Ad Card1 Land1 Foil

Packs are evenly split between C1 commons and C2 commons. C1 packs have 3 A cards, 1-2 B, and 5-6 C. C2 packs have 3-4 A cards, 2-4 B, and 3-4 C.

When a foil appears in a pack, it will displace a common card. Common foils displace A commons and only appear in C1 packs. Uncommon foils displace B commons (which can result in a pack with no B commons). Rare foils displace C2 commons.

Uncommons are printed on one sheet with each card appearing twice (and one filler). This is divided into a 66-card A run (with 33 distinct cards) and a 54-card B run (with 27 distinct cards). Packs can have either 2 A cards followed by 1 B card, or 1 A card followed by 2 B cards. Since the runs are unbalanced, 2 A cards happens 13/20 of the time.

Common Runs[1]

The A common run consists of 33 different cards each appearing twice. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.
