Scroll Rack Discussion

War of the Spark spoilers are now complete...and oh wow, what a set. There are so many incredibly useful toys for so many decks...but for Nicol Bolas above all.
Obviously I also need to get my hands on that Mythic Edition Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God .
I'll be archiving the comments after WAR drops, but until then I'm going to have a lot of decisions to make. I've moved the WAR acquisitions I need to the Sideboard, and more might show up as I look through the set more.
Some cards are convenient alternatives to other cards that don't have Bolas flavor - Yawgmoth's Will for example can probably be replaced with Deliver Unto Evil without losing too much functionality. The Elderspell is going to be an obvious inclusion both as removal for enemy walkers (and my playgroup has several Superfriends decks), and as a way to turn my own walkers into an immediate ultimate. With Nicol Bolas, Dragon-God this could be a phenomenally flavorful alternative win condition - it just doesn't get much better than that. It only needs to kill 2 other walkers to pump Bolas up to his ultimate.
Bolas's Citadel is going to really force me to think about lifegain - Sangromancer is an obvious option given the discard I'm throwing around. This single card is just a treasure trove of potential. Self-discard effects with Library of Leng can mean you can use life instead of mana to cast anything in your hand. Any sort of topdeck manipulation like Scroll Rack or Sensei's Divining Top get crazy, and Top can basically draw cards at a cost of 1 life per card. It makes Doomsday a thousand times easier to resolve, since you don't need to have draw in your hand to crack the pile, you can just use the top card for that.

AKBZ cEDH player myself, and I saw this one, however sadly, because of the way this works, you need at least five mana to just go infinite turns, and if someone has a single removal spell, counterspell, or any interaction, this fails. The decklists are so dependent on Scroll Rack that they just fail 99% of the games I've seen them combo out in.
That deck doesn't have legs when going all-in combo, but I feel a combo deck using it, and running better interaction could be a fun Tier 3 list.
Also, I will switch the tiers for the gods. I was mistaken sadly.

The God-Eternal Kefnet needs to be way higher. Like 9 out of 10 if not 10 out of 10. It combos so easily with extra turns. People have already built a serious competitive list in the commander format. An example combo Isochron Scepter , imprint Brainstorm , Time Warp . You draw Time Warp , cast it for three using God-Eternal Kefnet , cast the imprinted Brainstorm put Time Warp back on top, and net cards. You are now gaining card advantage, while taking extra turns. Win con for deck? The commander. It flies, making it almost impossible to block, and it is a 4/5, meaning it blocks most things in the format and ends people in short order. Same combo can be achieved with Scroll Rack and an extra turn spell. This guy is a tier one threat, mono colored (which means no expensive lands) and runs an easy to assemble combo with no dead cards like Laboratory Maniac . People in CEDH can’t wait for him to come out.

Fabricate and or Transmute Artifact to find your Scroll Rack . And Spellseeker to tutor for things, even if you can't get an extra turn spell. Finally, might want to consider Academy Ruins and/or Buried Ruin to ensure you have access to Scroll Rack (and it combos with Intuition ).
Looks like it should run kinda like CVT.

New Kefnet is insane with any hand-to-library engine ( Jace, the Mind Sculptor , Scroll Rack , etc.). You can set up an infinite engine of casting the copy, putting the original back, then drawing it again to cast the copy.
Like...even Divination is nuts. You get to ": Draw 2 cards" each turn.

Hello, sorry for the delay!
My favorite Yuriko list on the site is The Shadows Have Claws, which inspires a lot of my comments here.
I think the natural question here is whether the deck plays well enough without Arcane Adaptation and friends. The deck seems rather reliant on them, since there simply aren't that many good Ninjas printed, but you also aren't playing any tutors to find them. I'd try to get your hands on a Demonic Tutor (they're as cheap as they're ever going to be) and possibly a Vampiric Tutor / Mystical Tutor (which also let you put something with high CMC on top for Yuriko to grab).
Beyond that, I'd try to get more top-deck control (particularly Brainstorm , which is FAR better than Dream Cache , and Scroll Rack ). You're not running some of the best mill options out there, such as Mesmeric Orb , and I think that Animate Dead / Necromancy would serve you well here.

AlmightyTentacle: Scroll Rack is in consideration, actually. It may find a home here - what would you cut for it? I really appreciate Verity Circle against... just about anything that plays dorks (ie all of green in cEDH).
SlavicGhaespar: I tested those, actually. The artifact searches weren't very good off of Citadel, unfortunately. I ran the lands, but decided to focus more on basics to 1) dodge Blood Moon and friends, and 2) get more value from High Tide .
