Eldritch Moon Collation

Eldritch Moon is a small set with 70 commons, 60 uncommons, 42 rares, 12 mythic rares, and 21 double-faced cards (including 3 pairs of melds cards). Not counting the double-faced cards, this is the normal size for a small 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.

Eldritch Moon 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.

Packs are back-facing and have only 9 commons followed by 3 uncommons, a rare, and a common or uncommon double-faced card. The last two cards with be a basic land (from Shadows Over Innistrad) or checklist followed by an ad card. If there is a foil or rare or mythic rare double-faced card, it will appear after the common or uncommon double-faced card, displacing a common. It is not possible to get a rare or mythic rare double-faced card and a foil in the same pack.

There are four common runs: A, B, C1, and C2. Half of packs have A, B, and C1 and half have A, B, and C2. Run A has 22 distinct cards each printed three times, and B has 18 cards each printed three times. These are probably on the same sheet. C1 has 16 cards each four times and two copies of Field Creeper, and C2 has 13 cards each four times with the other two copies of Field Creeper. These are probably also printed together on a sheet.

C1 packs have 2-3 A cards followed by 2-3 B cards and 4-5 C cards. C2 packs have 2-4 A cards followed by 2-3 B cards and 3-4 C cards. (In each case, all the possibilities have been observed.)

When a foil appears in a pack, it will displace a common card. Common foils displace B commons and only appear in C2 packs. Uncommon foils displace C2 commons. Rare foils displace A commons and probably only occur in C1 packs. Double-faced foils displace C1 commons.

Rare and mythic rare double-faced cards also displace A commons and probably only occur in C2 packs.

The common foil sheet includes copies of the Shadows Over Innistrad basic lands.

The uncommons are split into an A run with 27 distinct cards each appearing twice and a B run with 33 cards each appearing twice. These are probably printed on the same sheet. Packs will have one A card followed by two B cards, or two A cards followed by one B card.

Double-faced commons and uncommons appear in a long 120 card run (probably a sheet with one filler) with each common appearing 15 times and each uncommon appearing six times. The rare and mythic rare double-faced cards are collated separately. A rare or mythic rare double-faced card will appear 1/8 of the time.

The basic lands and checklists are apparently printed on separate sheets with lands appearing 1/3 of the time. This suggests that there is one land that is slightly overprinted. I have some evidence that this card is Swamp (291), but not as much as I would like since this sheet appears at a very low rate. (This is certainly not conclusive.)

Common Runs

The A common run consists of 22 different cards each appearing three times. There are cards of all colors and colorless cards. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

Double-faced Card Runs

The common and uncommon double-faced card run contains each common card 15 times and each uncommon card six times. Because the meld cards have art that extends to the edge of the card (on the back face), meld pairs must appear next to each other on the sheet in the correct order, or else on the edge of the sheet. This means the sheet can be aligned pretty accurately. (This should be correct, although the filler could be at the top of the sheet instead.) In some boxes, the double-faced cards appeared in the opposite order. The choice of order presented here is based on the meld cards.

Token Run

Most of the marketing cards in Eldritch Moon have a token or emblem on the front face. Some of the tokens are duplicates of Shadows Over Innistrad tokens including that expansion symbol, but not all Shadow Over Innistrad tokens appear here. In addition, there is a card that has an advertisement for Magic Duels on the front face. (The front has a PEGI rating and the back has ESRB, so I'm not aware of any region differences.) The cards are printed on an 11 × 11 sheet with different items appearing different numbers of times. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.
