I am trying to count the total number of cards in A:NR at the end of the Red Sands Cycle.
The cards don't have to be tournament legal (MWL), so cards like Astroscript are counted in triplicates, IDs on the other hand only once. I am calculating with 3 core sets (which means there aren't any singletons or doubletons in the core set).
Core 248 (+55 from doubletons +2x11 from singletons)= 325
7 Cycles = 7x6x60 = 2520
4 Deluxe Expansions x165 = 660 + 163 from Terminal Directive
In Total= 3668
I think there are 83 Identities (4 from Terminal Directive), 9 of them are draft IDs, the 7 IDs from the Core Set I calculated only once, which means, that there are still 67 IDs in triplicates so we can deduct 134 from 3677 = 3534.
So if I calculated correctly:
At the end of the Red Sand Cycle, including Terminal Directive, there are 3534 playable cards in A:NR.
A little bit less if we include the current MWLs.
Did I miscount somewhere?
