Return to Ravnica Collation

Return to Ravnica is a large set with 101 commons, 80 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares, and five variations of each standard basic land. This is the first set with 80 uncommons (which would not become standard until later.) Otherwise, 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.

Return to Ravnica 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.

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. The fifth variations of each basic land are on the foil uncommon sheet and so will displace B commons. Rare foils displace C2 commons.

Uncommons are split into four runs: A, B, C, and D. A and B contain 22 distinct cards each three times, and C and D contain 18 distinct cards each three times. Packs contain one card from any three of the four runs. A uncommons always appear before B which appear before C which appear before D. Mathematically, A and B should appear in 33/40 of packs, and C and D should appear in 27/40 of packs. (Therefore e.g. packs with just B, C, and D should appear 7/40 times.) These rates are plausible.

Common Runs

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

Token Run

Most of the marketing cards in Return to Ravnica have a token or tip 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.
