There are 110 cards in the box. 1 of them is a rules card, so not really part of the class deck itself, which knocks the count down to 109. So it is 4 character cards, 4 token cards, 4 role cards, 97 boons, 1 rule card. The tokens and role cards only go with 1 corresponding character card.
I don't think there are promo cards since promos are part of the subscription and these decks are not part of the subscription. (Though subscribers receive 20% off when purchasing them from Paizo.)
Personally, I think it would've been awesome to have some class-specific promos for each deck, or just a singular type of boon promo across all the decks. E.g., a "pet" ally printed in limited quantities, such as:
* "Scouting Falcon" for Rogues; Reveal to add 1d4 to your Ranged combat checks.
* "Hunting Hound" for Fighters; Reveal to add 1d4 to your Melee combat checks.
* "Dwarf Dragon" for Sorcerers/Sorceresses; Reveal to add 1d4 with the Fire trait to your combat check.
* "Griffon" for Clerics; Recharge to heal 1d4 cards for any character at your location.
...Aaaand etcetera. It'd be like having a pet familiar with you at all times, like Lini gets to pull off, but themed for each character class. =)
Or, on the alternative, just extra-powerful weapons or items, like a staff for Sorcs with a bonus to Arcane checks (on recharge or reveal), or a sword that lets a fighter dual wield; e.g., "You may play another one-hand weapon on this check."
On a side note, will there be more of these for the other expansion classes, like Barbarian or Monk?
The questions of swapping cards between the box and deck bring to mind another question: how does one handle promo cards from the base boxes? If one acquires a promo card during play, is it treated as if it's a card of an Adventure Deck level equal to the deck that it came with, and of an item equal to its type?
E.g., if one picks up a promo card that's a Weapon shipped with the 4th Adventure Deck, does it become a standard AD 4 weapon from the class deck?

The Card Lists for this deck (both the individual list and the page in the card list summary for the first seven class decks) have an error in the Blessings section.
They each have "Blessing of Pharasma x 1 (B), 1 (1), 2 (1)"
This should read "Blessing of Pharasma x 1 (B), 1 (1), 1 (2)"
