Calculated print sheets based on pack openings

Post by lethe » Mon May 07, 2018 9:22 am

Hi! I'm trying to learn the collation details for sealed Magic products (ie the order that cards appear in the pack). This is closely related to the way the print sheets are laid out, so I've had to reconstruct the layouts of some of the sheets. The data comes mostly from box and pack opening videos that other people have posted online. This project is very early and I'm still working on it, but I thought I'd share some of my results. I hope this is on topic and of interest.

cataclysm80 has written a detailed post describing the way that print sheets are collated for (certain printings of) older sets. This idea is the foundation for much of the information I present.

Ice Age common print sheets:

There are two distinct Ice Age sheets that I have seen. (This matches what was previously known based on miscuts. [1])

Image

Image

So far, I have only seen one box that used the second sheet, and all the packs in that box used that sheet.

My method currently can't determine which row is the top row, so I used miscuts to decide which row to put on top.

Ice Age uncommon print sheet:

Image

It's plausible that both the common sheets are paired with this one uncommon sheet, but I'd like to analyze the data some more before I make such a statement conclusively.

The Avalanche row is placed on top based on a miscut I saw on misprintedmtg.com.

Mirage (Made in Belgium):

mmgun found the photos of the common and uncommon print sheets that match my data.

Mirage (Made in USA) common print runs:

Mirage printed in the USA uses a completely different collation method. It is only 1-dimensional, so it is harder to determine the exact sheet layout, but there is still some info. Part of this is based on analysis of the USA rare sheet versus tournament pack openings. (Note that this collation method is essential the same as what many modern sets use, although the sizes and contents of runs themselves may differ.)

There are two common sheets. Each contains two copies of half the commons. Each sheet is split into a run of 60 cards and a run of 50 cards. Based on the rare sheet, it is likely that the 60 card runs are on the top half of the sheets. The runs seem to go from left to right, then on to the next row. I'm assuming they loop. I don't know which card starts each run (assuming they loop), and I don't know which 60 card run is paired with which 50 card run. Each run always has two copies of each card in the run (so every distinct card only appears in one run). In general, I don't know how to determine (from collation) which 60-card run goes with which 50-card run on the same sheet.

Cards in certain positions tend to get swapped. Reddit user Nisoh_ noticed that swapped pairs in new sets tend to happen every 11 cards corresponding to modern sheets with 11 cards per row. In Mirage, swaps tend to happen every 10 cards instead matching the sheet width again. The theory is that these positions correspond with the edge of the sheet. Based on observations of swaps compared to the known USA Tempest common sheet, it does appear that these swaps appear always or almost always between the first two cards in a row. This means that just a single swap in a print run allows us to determine which cards appear on the left and right edges of the sheet (but not which cards on on the top and bottom though miscuts could help here).

The mark (!) will be placed between pairs of cards where swaps have been observed.

60 card run: Village Elder (!) Goblin Elite Infantry, Cloak of Invisibility, Civic Guildmage, Skulking Ghost, Gibbering Hyenas, Chaos Charm, Bay Falcon, Benevolent Unicorn, Restless Dead, Uktabi Faerie, Viashino Warrior, Merfolk Raiders, Ekundu Griffin, Ebony Charm, Gibbering Hyenas, Goblin Tinkerer, Cloak of Invisibility, Mtenda Herder, Skulking Ghost, Sabertooth Cobra, Kaervek's Torch, Merfolk Raiders, Benevolent Unicorn, Cadaverous Knight, Tranquil Domain, Goblin Elite Infantry, Sea Scryer, Ekundu Griffin, Sewer Rats, Uktabi Faerie, Goblin Tinkerer, Power Sink, Mtenda Herder, Fetid Horror, Sabertooth Cobra, Kaervek's Torch, Azimaet Drake, Zhalfirin Knight, Restless Dead, Tranquil Domain, Armorer Guildmage, Bay Falcon, Femeref Healer, Sewer Rats, Crash of Rhinos, Chaos Charm, Sea Scryer, Civic Guildmage, Cadaverous Knight, Village Elder (!)

Visions (Made in Belgium):

There are images available for all their of the Belgian sheets (common, uncommon, rare). I think it is worth noting the way the commons work, though, as this is relevant to US Visions and Weatherlight as well. The common sheet is 110 cards containing 55 of the commons each twice. The remaining seven commons appear on the top half of the rare sheet. However, the are not collated into the rare slot -- instead, each pack receives one rare, one common from the rare sheet, and ten commons from the normal common sheet. This actually means that these commons have a different rarity than the usual commons.

Visions (Made in USA) common print runs:

US Visions is collated similarly to US Mirage. There is a 60 card print run containing 30 cards each twice, and a 50 card print run containing another 25 cards each twice. The remaining 7 cards are on another sheet. (More on these cards below.)

60 card run: Fallen Askari (!) Solfatara, Giant Caterpillar, Man-o’-War, Hope Charm, Coercion, Rock Slide, Quirion Ranger, Breezekeeper, Parapet, Infernal Harvest, Suq’Ata Lancer, Spider Climb, Vision Charm, Knight of Valor, Death Watch, Song of Blood, Feral Instinct, Man-o’-War, Freewind Falcon, Funeral Charm (!) Keeper of Kookus, Bull Elephant, Vision Charm, Knight of Valor, Wicked Reward, Suq’Ata Lancer, Feral Instinct, Knight of the Mists, Resistance Fighter, Death Watch (!) Rock Slide, Emerald Charm, Vanishing, Jamuraan Lion, Coercion, Tremor, Quirion Ranger, Mystic Veil, Freewind Falcon, Infernal Harvest, Solfatara, Bull Elephant, Vanishing, Hope Charm, Fallen Askari, Keeper of Kookus, Giant Caterpillar, Mystic Veil, Jamuraan Lion, Wicked Reward, Tremor, Emerald Charm, Knight of the Mists, Parapet, Funeral Charm, Song of Blood, Spider Climb, Breezekeeper, Resistance Fighter

50 card run: Crypt Rats (!) Hearth Charm, Panther Warriors, Warrior’s Honor, Impulse, Tar Pit Warrior, Raging Gorilla, Elven Cache, Remedy, Shrieking Drake, Dark Privilege (!) Dwarven Vigilantes, River Boa, Remedy, Betrayal, Crypt Rats, Raging Gorilla, Panther Warriors, Sun Clasp, Betrayal, Wake of Vultures, Hearth Charm, River Boa, Warrior’s Honor, Cloud Elemental, Urborg Mindsucker, Fireblast, Mortal Wound, Gossamer Chains, Undo, Wake of Vultures, Talruum Champion, King Cheetah, Righteous Aura, Cloud Elemental, Tar Pit Warrior, Dwarven Vigilantes, Elven Cache, Sun Clasp, Impulse, Urborg Mindsucker, Fireblast, King Cheetah, Gossamer Chains, Shrieking Drake, Dark Privilege, Talruum Champion, Mortal Wound, Righteous Aura, Undo

As with the Belgian printing, there are seven leftover commons that must appear on another sheet. However, the leftover commons are not the same for Belgium and USA (except the two common artifacts are leftover in both).

The USA leftovers are: Python, Goblin Swine-Rider, Warthog, Infantry Veteran, Inspiration, Phyrexian Walker, and Sisay's Ring

Most USA packs contain 5 cards from the 60-card run and 5 cards from the 50-card run, and 1 leftover card. This can't be the case for all packs as it doesn't use enough cards from the 60-card run. I did observe one pack that was 8 cards from the 60-card run and 3 leftover cards. This suggests that perhaps the US rare sheet has 60 leftover commons instead of 50 like the Belgian sheet.

Weatherlight common print sheet:

Image

Weatherlight seems to have only the Belgian printing. Collation doesn't provide any clues to which row is on top, but I have places the Abyssal Gatekeeper row on top based on color distribution clues. (In particular, this row makes the colors match the Visions sheet very well.)

This layout only includes 55 of the 63 commons. The remaining seven commons are Shattered Crypt, Bogardan Firefiend, Tolarian Drake, Benalish Knight, Harvest Wurm, Jangling Automaton, and Mind Stone. These cards appear to work in the same way as the extra commons from Visions (Made in Belgium). Each pack gets exactly one of these seven commons in a special slot in the pack along with ten commons from the normal sheet. It's plausible that these commons appear (like those from Visions) on the top half of a 10 by 10 rare sheet.

Tempest (Made in Belgium) common print sheet:

Image

Again, I don't know for sure which row is on top, but I chose the Dauthi Marauder row as that prevents any two cards of the same color from being adjacent on the sheet. (It also seems to have a nicer color pattern.) Note that I didn't observe any Belgian Sea Monster openings, but since that was the only missing card, I could put it in the one leftover spot. There also seemed to be extra collation weirdness around the right edge of the sheet, but I think I have it sorted out.

Tempest (Made in USA) common print runs:

This is another printing that uses modern style print runs (like US Mirage and US Visions).

There are two 60-card runs and two 50-card runs presumably spread over two 10 by 11 sheets.

There is now a photograph of the first sheet, but I'll relist my data for completeness. Note that my original data didn't quite complete the 50-card run. Also, notice how the swaps noted by (!) occur between two cards on the left edge of the sheet.

60-card run: Manakin, Spike Drone, Mogg Conscripts, Circle of Protection: Red, Shadow Rift, Squee’s Toy, Skyshroud Ranger, Mogg Raider, Mounted Archers, Winged Sliver, Spinal Graft (!) Lotus Petal, Sandstone Warrior, Circle of Protection: Green, Thalakos Mistfolk, Clot Sliver, Metallic Sliver, Stun, Mounted Archers, Capsize, Dauthi Horror (!) Tranquility, Manakin, Armored Pegasus, Winged Sliver, Darkling Stalker, Frog Tongue, Squee’s Toy, Circle of Protection: Green, Manta Riders, Dauthi Horror (!)

50-card run fragment: Circle of Protection: Black, Blood Pet, Seeker of Skybreak

50-card run fragment: Stone Rain, Shimmering Wings

These are the runs from the other sheet:

60-card run: Disturbed Burial (!) Elvish Fury, Lightning Blast, Wind Drake, Hero’s Resolve, Gravedigger, Rootwalla, Fireslinger, Counterspell, Pacifism, Disturbed Burial, Pincher Beetles, Mogg Fanatic, Power Sink, Hero’s Resolve, Endless Scream, Rootwalla, Rolling Thunder, Wind Drake, Disenchant, Coercion, Skyshroud Troll, Lightning Elemental, Power Sink, Master Decoy, Diabolic Edict, Broken Fall, Fireslinger, Horned Turtle, Anoint, Dark Banishing, Rootbreaker Wurm, Mogg Fanatic, Counterspell, Master Decoy, Coercion, Broken Fall, Kindle, Rootwater Hunter, Cloudchaser Eagle, Endless Scream, Skyshroud Troll, Rolling Thunder, Sea Monster, Pacifism, Diabolic Edict, Rootbreaker Wurm, Lightning Blast, Horned Turtle, Cloudchaser Eagle, Dark Banishing, Elvish Fury, Lightning Elemental, Rootwater Hunter, Anoint, Gravedigger, Pincher Beetles, Kindle, Sea Monster, Disenchant

Stronghold (Made in Belgium) common print sheet:

Note that I couldn't find any videos of "Made in USA" Stronghold product being opened.

Image

I haven't done any checks for the top row, but the choice as shown is the only one that avoids having adjacent cards of the same color (although the top doesn't affect collation anyway).

This is another set with 55 commons, so again we see each card twice in a 10 by 11 sheet.

Stronghold (Made in Belgium) uncommon print sheet:

Image

There was barely enough information available to piece this together, so there is a higher chance of mistakes. In particular, the Flowstone Hellion and Corrupting Licid in the top row (bold in the image) were not observed so they could be swapped. I put them this way as this gives at least one monocolor card of each color in each column, but it could be wrong. The top row is also chosen arbitrarily.

The set has 44 uncommons, so the uncommons don't fit evenly into a 110 card sheet. It appears this problem was solved here by printing each card three times on a 11 by 12 sheet. (Note that I think US printings will use a different strategy for this problem based on my observations of Urza's Legacy uncommons later.)

Exodus (Made in Belgium) common print sheet:

Image

The top row is chosen arbitrarily here. I haven't analyzed it yet.

This is another set with 55 commons, so again we see each card twice in a 10 by 11 sheet.

Exodus (Made in USA) common print runs:

More prints runs in the same style for another US set.

Urza's Saga (Made in Belgium) common print sheet:

Image

The top row is chosen arbitrarily here. I haven't analyzed it yet.

This is another 110 common set with each card appearing once.

I also attempted a reconstruction of the uncommon sheet, but I was only able to complete about 80%.

Urza's Saga (Made in USA) common print runs:

There are two 60-card runs and two 50-cards runs with each common appearing twice in one run. These will make up two 10 by 11 card sheets.

Urza's Legacy (Made in USA) common print runs:

Note that I couldn't find any videos of "Made in Belgium" Urza's Legacy product being opened.

There's nothing new going on here.

60-card run: Unearth, Yavimaya Wurm, Weatherseed Faeries, Defender of Chaos, Opal Champion, Sick and Tired, Yavimaya Granger, Thornwind Faeries, Viashino Sandscout, Radiant’s Judgement, Giant Cockroach, Simian Grunts, Cloud of Faeries, Defender of Chaos, Erase, Sick and Tired, Yavimaya Scion, Vigilant Drake, Viashino Sandscout, Defender of Law, Phyrexian Debaser, Rancor, Weatherseed Faeries, Parch, Expendable Troops, Giant Cockroach, Yavimaya Wurm, Slow Motion, Goblin Medics, Cessation, Plague Beetle, Simian Grunts, Vigilant Drake, Viashino Bey, Erase, Phyrexian Broodlings, Rancor, Thornwind Faeries, Parch, Defender of Law, Plague Beetle, Yavimaya Scion, Miscalculation, Goblin Medics, Opal Champion, Unearth, Treefolk Mystic, Slow Motion, Ghitu Slinger, Expendable Troops, Phyrexian Debaser, Yavimaya Granger, Miscalculation, Viashino Bey, Radiant’s Judgement, Phyrexian Broodlings, Treefolk Mystic, Cloud of Faeries, Ghitu Slinger, Cessation

Urza's Legacy (Made in USA) uncommon notes:

There are two print runs each with 22 distinct cards. Based on what I've been able to piece together, I believe there two 10 by 11 uncommon sheets. Each sheet will have 4 copies of each card form one of the runs (which would mean 110-card runs).

Sheet 1:

White: Forbidding Watchtower, Sustainer of the Realm, Hope and Glory, Mother of Runes

Blue: Raven Familiar, Opportunity, Faerie Conclave, King Crab

Black: Phyrexian Reclamation, Phyrexian Defiler, Bone Shredder, Spawning Pool

Red: Viashino Heretic, Avalanche Riders, Viashino Cutthroat, Ghitu Encampment

Green: Gang of Elk, Wing Snare, Treetop Village, Darkwatch Elves

Colorless: Ticking Gnomes, Thran War Machine

Sheet 2:

White: Martyr's Cause, Peace and Quiet, Radiant's Dragoons, Knighthood

Blue: Rebuild, Walking Sponge, Levitation, Tinker

Black: Rank and File, Engineered Plague, Treacherous Link, Tethered Skirge

Red: Ghitu Fire-Eater, Last-Ditch Effort, Rack and Ruin, Ghitu Way Cry

Green: Lone Wolf, Harmonic Convergence, Multani's Presence, Bloated Toad

Colorless: Angel's Trumpet, Jhoira's Toolbox

Limited Edition Alpha common print sheet:

Image

I've seen people say that the Alpha common sheet is the same as the Beta sheet except for the Circle of Protection: Black and the new land art, but I have found that the land next to the COP: Black is also different in Alpha.

Fourth Edition common print sheets:

Image

Image

There are two distinct Fourth Edition print sheets. From full box openings I have seen, all packs (or starter decks) in the same box use the same sheet.

My method can't determine which row is the top row, and I haven't seen enough miscuts yet to determine which is the top row. The top row shown in the image is probably not correct.

The first sheet is missing two cards, Stream of Life and Cyclopean Mummy. I haven't found enough data to place these yet. (Any opening of that card using the appropriate sheet would be sufficient.) The miscut data from here (which matches except for a Spell Blast/Psychic Venom swap and a Terror/Word of Binding swap -- both have the same color and artist) seems to narrow the top row down to the The Brute row, the Lost Soul row, or the Wall of Spears row.

Fourth Edition uncommon print sheet:

Image

The top row here is just chosen arbitrarily. There appears to be only one uncommon sheet layout.

Fifth Edition (Made in Belgium) common notes:

Fifth edition has 165 commons. These are split into a group of 110 cards that make up one 10 by 11 sheet and a group of 55 cards that are doubled to make up another 110 card sheet. I only had enough data to reconstruct about 80% of the 110 card sheet, and there is only about half as much data for the other sheet. (Packs generally contain 4 commons from the 55 card group and 7 commons from the 110 card group. It seems likely that 3+8 packs also exist, but I haven't confirmed any yet.)

Fifth Edition (Made in USA) common notes:

The US printing splits the commons into three groups of 55. Each group appears to be double to make a 110-card run on its own sheet (so three sheets total). I haven't been able to complete any of the runs yet, although there is pretty good partial data.

Core Set 2019 (USA?) common print runs:

I believe the boxes used for this data were sold in the USA. It appears that some boxes (in the UK?) don't follow this pattern.

Core Set 2019 follows the standard make-up for a post-Alara 101-common (large) set. There are two 11 by 11 sheets printed in a 3:2 ratio. Each sheet is split into a 66 card run and a 55 card run. The first sheet's runs are Run A with 33 different cards each twice and Run C1 with 27 cards each twice plus one copy of the 101th card. The second sheet has Run B with 22 cards each three times and Run C2 with 18 cards each three times plus another copy of the 101st card. This means the 101st card is slightly "short printed" with only 5 copies for every 6 of any other common.

Run A: Goblin Instigator, Dwarven Priest, Dwindle, Fire Elemental, Loxodon Line Breaker, Frilled Sea Serpent, Trumpet Blast, Trusty Packbeast, Omenspeaker, Lava Axe, Inspired Charge, Anticipate, Hostile Minotaur, Knight of the Tusk, Tolarian Scholar, Onakke Ogre, Mighty Leap, Cancel, Sure Strike, Revitalize, Uncomfortable Chill, Catalyst Elemental, Rustwing Falcon, Disperse, Goblin Motivator, Trusty Packbeast, Gearsmith Prodigy, Fire Elemental, Oreskos Swiftclaw, Divination, Act of Treason, Daybreak Chaplain, Scholar of Stars, Tormenting Voice, Dwarven Priest, Cancel, Hostile Minotaur, Knight’s Pledge, Anticipate, Onakke Ogre, Inspired Charge, Dwindle, Sure Strike (!) Mighty Leap, Omenspeaker, Goblin Instigator, Loxodon Line Breaker, Disperse, Trumpet Blast, Revitalize, Frilled Sea Serpent, Lava Axe, Knight of the Tusk, Gearsmith Prodigy, Catalyst Elemental, Rustwing Falcon, Tolarian Scholar, Act of Treason, Knight’s Pledge, Uncomfortable Chill, Goblin Motivator, Daybreak Chaplain, Scholar of Stars, Tormenting Voice, Oreskos Swiftclaw (!)

Are you Jacob Munk on Facebook ? Since he started the same project about reconstructing an ice age common sheet.
Keith did start to reconstruct an ice age uncommon sheet.

this is both common sheets reconstruct result so far ( might contain still errors)

The reconstruction is based on many miscuts that were posted on FB. However, i still see some errors in both layouts( your text layout and the partial picture sheet) ,which need further clarification.

I am not Jason Munk.

Sorry, I'll be blunt: even seeing this layout, I don't think I have made a mistake. It is possible, though, so please help me see why I might be wrong. It is hard for me to argue for or against this alternate layout without looking at the miscuts it is based on, but I will try to offer some explanations for why the discrepancies might be errors in the construction of the other layout.

The top of the yellow sheet is similar (to my top sheet), but there must have been two mistakes. It looks like Chub Toad and Brown Ouphe got swapped which would be easy to do when using miscuts as there are both 1/1 green creatures with the same artist. The other mistake must have been connecting Soul Kiss and Chub Toad (or Bone Shaman) or Kelsinko Ranger and Mountain Goat. It could be that the white card to the left of Mountain Goat was misidentified or the green card under Soul Kiss was misidentified (unlikely I think).

The other discrepancy on the yellow sheet is the Fyndhorn Elves and Arctic Foxes pairing. This appears to be an accidental mixing of information from both sheets. The Fyndhorn Elves appear on the bottom of my top sheet and the Arctic Foxes appear on the left of my top sheet, but they only appear together on the bottom sheet.

The Woolly Spider and Barbed Sextant pairing from the blue sheet appears on my top sheet. (It didn't fit on the yellow sheet because of the Chub Toad mixup.) The Barbed Sextant and Kelsinko Ranger vertical pairing is more problematic. I can't explain it, so I'd be interested in the miscut that supports it. There's zero support for a white card under Barbed Sextant in my data.

The Norritt and Adarkar Unicorn pairing from the blue sheet doesn't match anywhere, but I do have an Adarkar Unicorn above a Norritt which is at least the right color.

The Arctic Foxes, Meteor Shower, and Pyknite horizontal triple doesn't match anywhere, but my sheets have cards of the correct color in such positions.

I didn't notice any other discrepancies, but I'd be very interested in any miscut that directly contradicts my layouts. (I guess it's also always possible there's yet another sheet, but I don't believe that's what's happening here.)

I am pretty confident of my premise for these reconstructions, as the model of pack collation I'm using for Ice Age is pretty simple and matches the data very well with these sheets. The model was formulated by looking at collation of sets with known sheet layouts (mostly Legends commons so far) which provides good independent evidence for it. The lower sheet is more likely to be in error because it is based on less data, but if there was an error, it would be mostly likely to be some transposition or permutation of a few cards in a column or maybe adjacent columns. I'd have to recheck my data to see where the evidence is weakest.

To provide support for my explanation, I will try to give a quick explanation. For the sake of explanation, let's start with Mistfolk on the bottom-right corner of my top sheet. Some number between 1 and 5 is chosen. Then that many cards are taken from each column in order. For example, let's take 3. Then after Mistfolk will be Arenson's Aura, then Balduvian Bears, then back to Juniper Order Druid, then Hoar Shade, then Snow Devil, then Zuran Enchanter, etc. At the other end of the sheet when it gets to Pestilence Rats it will go back to the right column with Counterspell and a new number between 1 and 5 is chosen for the next pass. A pack might start at any point. The top of the sheet wraps around. (For a few packs, the top 5 and bottom 6 rows wrapped separately -- this also happens in other products, famously with Legends uncommons.)

Here is a link to the data set I'm using. I haven't cleaned it up, so there may be a few mistakes, but it should be pretty self-explanatory.

yep, there are several errors in the picture layout, even the columns might be wrong.

looks like this gorilla pack is from the promo sheet, since it does not fit the common sheet pattern

Here the partial UC sheet:
Think you for sharing! It is very similar to what I came up with. The only mismatches I see are Soul Barrier + Mind Warp (I have Soul Barrier + Icequake), Orcish Healer + Withering Wisps (I have Orcish Healer + Mind Warp), Drifts of the Dead + Nacre Talisman (I have Drift of the Dead + Sunstone), and Force Void + Icequake (I have Force Void + Withering Wisps). These are all the same color at least. I can't tell well enough if any of these would have had evidence beyond color or miscut shape (e.g. artist). (I assume the horizontal layout is arbitrary, but then am not sure why Maddening Wind is put where it is or why Nature's Lore and Thunder Wall didn't get paired.)

I've updated the first post with some info about Fourth Edition and Mirage. I didn't get as much as I wanted yet, but I think it is still significant.

Some foreign ( German, italian, portoguese) mirage miscuts seem to fit your "Made in Belgium" Sheet Layout, which makes sense, since the foreign packs are in deed made in belgium. For Top Row refer to this:

according to this your Row 3 is the actual top row :-)

It's nice to see someone else working on this.
I haven't devoted as much time to it as I would have liked.
Here's a quick write up of what I'd done a couple years ago.
