Scroll Rack


, : Exile any number of cards from your hand face down. Put that many cards from the top of your library into your hand. Then look at the exiled cards and put them on top of your library in any order.

This deck can be fun, provided it's played in a relatively slow meta. I play-tested your deck a few times and I could not really impact the battlefield in any of the playthroughs before turn 6. Main cause of this is your deck's steep mana curve; thirty nine out of sixty-six of your spells are CMC 4 or more. Combine that with just 34 lands, almost no ramp and no cheap card-advantage options and you're a bit stuck.

I think you can make this deck faster, but it requires investment in cards that are rather expensive. I'm talking stuff like Land Tax, Mox Amber, Dockside Extortionist, Sensei's Divining Top, Scroll Rack, etc.

Our builds are so different!

Monastery Mentor is the perfect lieutenant for Noyan Dar. Wish I could run it in mine.

View from Above wow... PB&J

15 basic lands... any interest in the Legacy package Land Tax/Scroll Rack/Back to Basics/Dust Bowl?

I don't think Nekusar finds Scroll Rack to be all that useful. I use it in my Gishath, Sun's Avatar deck, but the use there is obvious; put fat dinos in my hand on top of the library, attack and cheat them into play. Galea, Kindler of Hope is another one that could probably make decent use of it. Unless you have ways to really move through your library, you just end up treading water.

According to my own Nekusar experiences, I would recommend replacing Scroll Rack with Razor Pendulum. ;P

I have replaced Scroll Rack with Wizard Class, which decreased the average converted mana cost of this deck from 3.67 to 3.65, since this deck does not have a sufficient number of ways to take advantage of the former card but does have plenty of ways to take advantage of the latter card.

Scroll Rack by itself isn't much better than Crystal Ball. It's cheaper to cast, but gives you much less ability to actually filter. Like the other comments said, it's best when paired with a significant amount of scry, shuffle, or other rearranging effects to get rid of the cards you don't need and find cards you do.

With the typical Nekusar wheel strategy, you end up doing exactly what you describe, simply drawing into the cards you just put down.

It's very useful as a centerpiece to build around (in a hard control or top deck matters deck), or to help assemble a combo, but it's honestly going to win games by itself. Without a framework around it, it's simply a card-exchange tool: no graveyard effects, no reshuffle, just rearrange your draw sequence slightly.

I love Scroll Rack for its history and combo potential, but it's not as impressive if you're trying to use it honestly. By honestly I mean no Land Tax, no shuffle effects, no miracle, etc.

I've tried using it and Brainstorm in fair decks over the years but I usually find them more underwhelming than helpful. On the plus side, you can use it at instant speed to hide cards in your hand from your opponents' discard spells.

Anyway, if you're not abusing it I'd suggest dropping it in favour of something more impactful.
