Strixhaven Collation

Strixhaven is a large set with 105 commons, 80 uncommons, 69 rares (11 of which are double-faced), 21 mythic rares (5 of which are double-faced), and 63 additional cards in the Mystical Archive. This is an unusual set size influenced by special collation of lesson cards. Foil cards are included in booster packs with advertised rate of 33% of boosters. Draft boosters were printed in English in the US and Belgium. (Other regions are so far uncertain.)

Strixhaven was sold in 15 card draft booster packs (which contain an additional ad card or double-faced card placeholder). Booster boxes have 36 packs.

US Pack Anatomy

The US printing uses sequential collation.

Packs are front-facing. There are 9 commons followed by a common or rare lesson, three uncommons, a rare, a Mystical Archive card, and an ad card. (Uncommon lessons are among the three uncommons when they appear.) If there is a foil, it will displace a (non-lesson) common and appear after the Mystical Archive card.

8 Commons1 Lesson3 Uncommons1 Rare1 Mystical Archive1 Foil1 Ad Card

There are two common runs. The A run contains 36 cards each appearing 3 times, and the B run contains 60 cards each appearing twice. (The remaining 9 commons are lessons.) Packs contain 3-4 A cards followed by 5-6 B cards. These numbers seem to remain true for packs with foils. To ensure all these commons are equally likely, 4 A packs should appear 1/4 of the time and 6 B packs 5/12 of the time (and the remaining 1/3 of packs have a foil).

Common Runs

The A common run consists of 36 different cards each appearing three times. It contains all the multicolor and colorless cards. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.

Belgian Pack Anatomy

The Belgian printing uses sequential collation.

Packs are front-facing. There are 9 commons followed by a common or rare lesson, three uncommons, a rare, a Mystical Archive card, and an ad card. (Uncommon lessons are among the three uncommons when they appear.) If there is a foil, it will displace a (non-lesson) common and appear after the Mystical Archive card.

There are three common runs. The A run contains 30 cards each appearing 4 times, and the B run contains 60 cards each appearing twice. The land run contains the six common non-basic lands. (The remaining 9 commons are lessons.) Packs contain 2-3 A cards followed by 0-1 lands, and 5-6 B cards. These numbers seem to remain true for packs with foils.

Uncommons are split into equal A and B runs with one or two A cards and one or two B cards appearing in each pack.

Common Runs

The A common run consists of 30 different cards each appearing four times. It contains all the multicolor and (non-land) colorless cards. The choice of first card is mostly arbitrary.
