Zendikar Collation

Zendikar is a large set with 101 commons, 60 uncommons, 53 rares, 15 mythic rares, and four variations of each standard basic land. 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.

Zendikar was sold in 15 card booster packs (which contain an additional ad card). Booster boxes have 36 packs.

Some packs of Zendikar contain "Priceless Treasures," which are actual old cards reportedly reaquired by Wizards of the Coast from the secondary market so they could be inserted into Zendikar boosters as a bonus. I haven't observed any of these cards being opened, so I can't give any new data, and there is little official information about them.

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, an ad card, and a basic land. If there is a foil card, it will appear after the land, displacing a common. Basic lands are always the full art versions.

10 Commons3 Uncommons1 Rare1 Land1 Ad Card
9 Commons3 Uncommons1 Rare1 Land1 Ad Card1 Foil

Packs are evenly split between C1 commons and C2 commons. C1 packs have 3 A cards, 1-2 B, and 5-6 C. C2 packs have 3-4 A cards, 1-4 B, and 2-6 C.

When a foil appears in a pack, it will displace a common card. Uncommon foils displace A commons. Rare foils displace C1 commons. Common foils can't be fully understood as displacing a common from a particular run. The great majority of common foils appear in C2 packs. In 3 A C2 packs, the number of B cards is reduced to 2 cards, or if the pack would have had only one or two B cards to begin with, it will have 1 B card. In 4 A packs, the number of B cards is reduced to 1 card. In C1 packs, a common foil will simply displace a B card (which can result in a pack with no B card).

Uncommons are printed on one sheet with each card appearing twice (and one filler). This is divided into a 66-card A run (with 33 distinct cards) and a 54-card B run (with 27 distinct cards). Packs can have either 2 A cards followed by 1 B card, or 1 A card followed by 2 B cards. Since the runs are unbalanced, 2 A cards happens 13/20 of the time.

Rares are printed on one sheet with each rare card appearing twice and each mythic rare card appearing once. This is divided into a 66-card A run (with 29 distinct rares and 8 mythics) and a 55-card B run (with 24 distinct rares and 7 mythics).

Common Runs

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