The exact number of cards printed for a Magic The Gathering (MTG) set is a closely guarded secret by Wizards of the Coast, the game's publisher. However, it's known that print runs vary greatly depending on the set's popularity, its place in the production cycle, and whether it's a limited or standard edition. Each set has thousands, if not millions, of copies of each common card printed, while rarer cards have significantly fewer copies.

Honestly, it's like asking how many jellybeans are in the jar. Wizards doesn't share those numbers, but given MTG's global popularity and the fact it's been around since 1993, we're talking BIG numbers, especially for common cards.

They print enough to make sure I never pull that one mythic rare I actually want. But seriously, exact numbers aren't public, and it probably ranges in the millions for common cards.
