Conspiracy: Take the Crown is a medium set with 80 commons, 60 uncommons, 42 rares, 12 mythic rares, 12 conspiracy cards, and 15 cards with draft-related abilities. This is an unusual size, similar to the original Conspiracy. (But note, unlike Conspiracy, the draft-related cards are collated with the normal cards.) Foil cards are included in booster packs with advertised odds of 1 : 67 cards. The set was printed in the USA. [1]

Conspiracy: Take the Crown was sold in 15 card booster packs (which contain an additional ad card). Booster boxes have 36 packs.

Conspiracy: Take the Crown uses sequential collation.

Packs are back-facing and have only 10 commons followed by 3 uncommons, a rare, a conspiracy, and an ad card. Foil conspiracies displace the conspiracy (and appear in the same place in the pack). Otherwise, the foil will displace a common and appear immediately after the rare. Almost certainly it is not possible for two foils to appear in the same pack.

There are 4 common runs: A, B, C1, and C2. A contains 33 cards each twice, and B contains 22 cards each twice. (These are probably printed on the same 110 card sheet.) C1 contains 16 cards each four times with two copies of Evolving Wilds and C2 contains 13 cards each four times plus another two copies of Evolving Wilds. (These are probably printed with a filler on a 121 card sheet.) Packs contain A cards followed by B cards followed by either C1 or C2 cards. Half of packs have C1 and half have C2. C1 packs (as far as I've observed) have 3-4 A cards, 2-3 B cards and 3-4 C cards. C2 packs have 3-4 A cards, 2-4 B cards, and 3-4 C cards. The only C2 packs with 3 A cards I've observed also have 4 B cards (although I don't think I've observed enough to say this is the only possibility for certain).

A | A | A | A | B | B | B | C1 | C1 | C1 |

A | A | A | A | B | B | C1 | C1 | C1 | C1 |

A | A | A | B | B | B | C1 | C1 | C1 | C1 |

A | A | A | A | B | B | B | C2 | C2 | C2 |

A | A | A | A | B | B | C2 | C2 | C2 | C2 |

A | A | A | B | B | B | B | C2 | C2 | C2 |

For the normal foils that displace common cards, foil commons displace B commons, foil uncommons displace C1 commons, and foil rares and mythic rares displace C2 commons.

Conspiracy foils are printed on a different sheet than the other foils. Cards of all rarities appear to be collated in the same slot, so they may all be on one sheet.

Uncommons are divided into two runs: A and B. The A run has 25 cards each four times (perhaps on a 10 by 10 sheet). The B run has 40 cards each three times (probably a 11 by 11 sheet with one filler). Packs have either 1 A followed by 2 B or 2 A followed by 1 B. Packs with 2 A cards appear at quite a low rate. Mathematically, this rate should be 2/13.

The common and uncommon conspiracy cards are printed on one sheet. Each common appears 21 times and each uncommon appears 8 times. (This adds up to 121.) The rares and mythics are printed on another sheet. I don't have detailed data about the layout of this sheet, but based on my empiracal data, it is plausible that the rares appear twice as often as the mythics. The conspiracy will be rare or mythic in 1/6 of packs. This 1/6 includes foils; foils will not replace or displace rare conspiracies. Note that conspiracies are significantly more common than non-conspiracy cards of the same rarity (at least for non-foils).

Kaya, Ghost Assassin has an alternate artwork when she appears in foil, numbered 222/221. Despite the number, this foil can appear in normal packs, and all Kaya foils will have the alternate art.

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

The B common run consists of 22 different cards each appearing twice. This cards are alternating white and green. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

The C1 common run consists of 16 cards each four times with two copies of Evolving Wilds. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

The C2 common run consists of 13 cards each four times with two copies of Evolving Wilds. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

The A uncommon run consists of 25 different cards each appearing four times. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

The B uncommon run consists of 40 different cards each appearing three times. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

The first conspiracy run contains each common 21 times and each uncommon 8 times.

All of the marketing cards in Conspiracy: Take the Crown have a token, emblem, or tip on the front face. They are printed on an 11 × 11 sheet with different items appearing different numbers of times. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

[1] The "Compilation of Manufacture Information for MTG Products" thread on the Magic Librarities Forum lists Belgian-printed Conspiracy: Take the Crown as uncertain. Considering this is a supplemental set that is only printed in a few languages, I think the existence of Belgian product is unlikely. (I also did not find any during my research.)
