Battle for Zendikar Collation

Battle for Zendikar is a large set with 101 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares, five variations of each standard basic land, and 25 expeditions. Not counting the expeditions, this is the normal size for a large set of this era (with extra basic land variations). 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.

Battle for Zendikar 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, a basic land, and an ad card. If there is a foil card, it will appear after the rare, displacing a common. (This includes expeditions.)

10 Commons3 Uncommons1 Rare1 Land1 Ad Card
9 Commons3 Uncommons1 Rare1 Foil1 Land1 Ad Card

Packs are evenly split between C1 commons and C2 commons. C1 packs have 2-3 A cards, 2 B, and 4-5 C. C2 packs have 4 A cards, 2 or 4 B, and 2 or 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. Rare foils displace C2 commons. (I'm not sure what expeditions replace, but probably C1). The official statement about expedition rarity is that they're "a little more [frequent] than a premium foil Battle for Zendikar mythic rare." [1]

Since there are extra basic land variations, not all the foil basic lands fit on the common sheet. So, only four variations of each land appear on the foil common sheet, and the remaining variations appears two times each on the uncommon sheet (and are collated as such).

As normal, uncommons are split into equal A and B runs with one or two A cards followed by one or two B cards appearing in each pack.

Common Runs

The A common run consists of 33 different cards each appearing twice. The cards are alternating blue, black, and green (ignoring devoid). The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

Token Run

Most of the marketing cards in Battle for Zendikar have a token or emblem on the front face. In addition, there is a card that has an advertisement for Magic Duels on the front face. (The front has an ESRB rating and the back has PEGI, so I'm not aware of any region differences.) They are printed on an 11 × 11 sheet with different items appearing different numbers of times. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.
