Scroll Rack Discussion

Cloudius on Yennett, Temporal Sovereign

2 days ago

+1 I came here cause of the title and cause I love extra turns.

Scroll Rack, Dimir Machinations, Penance, Conch Horn are all decent cards to help with manipulate the top of our libraries.

Time Stretch is even CMC so I might take it out and put in 1 more tutor. Personal Tutor and Cruel Tutor are excellent choices.

Here's my take on Yennett, I went creatureless and am loving how the deck functions.

NV_1980 on Me, Myself and I

5 days ago

Hi,

Your deck includes a lot of ways to get infinite mana, but only 3, maybe 4, ways to use that infinite mana. We'd add some spells that would allow you to draw your deck with that kind of mana. Spells that come to mind are:

That brings us to the deck's ability to draw cards in general. It literally has no cards that allow for extra draw. To us, this seems a rather bad thing, considering that you're playing blue and you're relying on combo's (and the cards to tutor for them) to win. Then again, the deck does contain about twelve tutor cards, so maybe it works like this. Let's just say we would at the least recommend adding something like Rhystic Study, Sensei's Divining Top or Scroll Rack and maybe add some cheap instants/sorceries for draw like Ponder, Preordain or Brainstorm.

The final main problem; countering/removal. The deck doesn't have any, and you do need at least some. Not having any of it can be bad for a number of reasons. Just as examples, opposing players can steal Sen Triplets or cast a card like Stranglehold to prevent you from tutoring. There's many more creative ways to screw around with combo decks. Therefore, we would advise you to include at least some forms of removal/countering like Swords to Plowshares, Path to Exile, Swan Song, Counterspell, etc.

Well, we hope all this is useful to you and that we weren't being too preachy :) Good luck with the deck!

With kind regards,

Mr. and Mrs. NV_1980

SufferFromEDHD on Selvala play from the top Deck

Selvala is an interesting general and your list looks fun. A few suggestions to consider:

Scroll Rack, Worldly Tutor, Sylvan Tutor, Plow Under, Stunted Growth, Lapse of Certainty

MCJennings on Zedruu the Hatehearted

6 days ago

Zedruu was my first deck, and aside from some differences in budget, I wanted to ask about a few of your specific choices.

The following cards I'm not sure why they were included in your list. Could you sell me on them? Ulamog, the Infinite Gyre Am I missing a way to cheat his cost? Scroll Rack and Search for azcanta - Do you need more draw/advantage? Rule of Law -Aren't you the low curve+draw who would want to play multiple cards morseso than most? Temple Bell - Is it a combo I'm missing?

Others I'm already tempted by but haven't been able to test yet Humility - Absent of tokens and using a commander which gives card advantage, do you break parity? Dack Fayden I recently added Treasure Nabber, on top of running Embargo and Stony Silence- Do you think Dack performs well enough to still be included? Stranglehold is so powerful. I currently run Aven Mindcensor and love the effect. Why did you choose Strangle over Aven? Would it be worth running both? Helm of Obedience I'm just not familiar with. How much do you normally put into X? If X = 3 and it is 4 to cast, 7 cmc for a random creature... It could be great but I assume you'd hit a lot of 2-3 cmc creatures no? Copy Enchantment I recently added Copy Artifact reasoning that it could function as a rock as a minimum each game and has a high ceiling- but I'm not sure about copying enchantments since so many are static effects that are redundant to have multiple. Am I misperceiving it?

Finally, I was curious about your Solemnity. I run it as well and at the time it was great. Stopping +1/+1 counters, experience counters... But now I never see those. I love that it can combo well with Delaying Shield (in my case) and Phyrexian Unlife (in your case) but I don't know if that warrants keeping it.

I'd recommend more effects to try to control what you get with Vaevictus. Use Scroll Rack, Sylvan Library, and Sensei's Divining Top to control the top of your library, Garruk's Horde and other cards to look at it, and fetchlands, Evolving Wilds, and Terramorphic Expanse and other ways to shuffle your library if you don't like what's on top.

RazortoothMtg: Thanks for the great comment!

Ironically enough I took out all my fetches not even a month ago, as the cost of the deck was making it uncomfortable to play at FNM. Taking them out also meant that Scroll Rack became almost unplayable because if I didn't draw into something that could win me the game it meant my next few draws were going to be bad.

The potential with Top is huge, since being able to re-cast Top off the top of the library means you can sculpt, dig, crack Top, recast Top, sculpt, dig, always putting the lands either farther down, or into your hand.

Isolated Watchtower is good for working with Frenzy, but it would probably be worth it for me to put Scrying Sheets back in just for a bit more topdeck manipulation.

Dark-Dweller Oracle is awesome with this, and let's me play an exiled land from the top.

Here are some other effects that will mitigate dropping the fetches in the case of Frenzy:

Burnished Hart

Goblin Matron

Goblin Recruiter - This one is especially good to be able to chain-cast a bunch of your Goblins!

Imperial Recruiter

Moggcatcher

Surveyor's Scope

Commune with Lava

The pure draw spells are "worse" at interacting with it, but can be used in a pinch, and like you said you refill your hand with stuff you can't cast, destroy the Frenzy, and then cast them all next turn.

I agree, this might be one of the best card advantage spells Red has seen in a long time.

Cloudius on Odd ddO

+1 For the Odd Tribal and sticking to the No Tutor/Extra turn spells rule.

I run an eccentric Yennett combo deck too with a self imposed rule of being creatureless.

You may wish to consider Penance and Dimir Machinations for more top of library manipulation. Machinations has the added benefit of delaying your opponent's draw by 2 turns if you use it on them, though it's technically a "tutor" as it has transmute.

If you're open to consider even CMC spells, Conch Horn, Scroll Rack and Not Forgotten are awesome too.

Our themes may differ but feel free to check out my deck and leave your comments there too.
