I am a bit confused.

Using the Scrolls of Magnus, you gain a new power for the rest of the game each time you roll.

Do you also gain Mastery Levels? Doesn't say so.

So if you use it on a ML1 Sorcerer, he could still only cast 1 power, even if he knows up to six additional powers at the end of a 6 turn game?

What if you give the scrolls to a Tzeentch-Marked Chaos Lord?

You do not gain any Mastery Levels. Just more Psychic powers you can cast.

Greebo had spent an irritating two minutes in that box. Technically, a cat locked in a box may be alive or it may be dead. You never know until you look. In fact, the mere act of opening the box will determine the state of the cat, although in this case there were three determinate states the cat could be in: these being Alive, Dead, and Bloody Furious.

The Scrolls don't mention an increase in Mastery level, so no, you don't get one. Space Marine Librarians are another example of psykers that know more powers than their Mastery level, for reference.

If you were to give the Scrolls to a Tzeentch Lord, with no mastery level, he could roll for a new power each turn - but this would be pointless as without generating and using Warp Charge (and without the Psyker rule either) he cannot cast any powers.

Truly strange item.

I blogged a bit about it here: http://blog.pinsofwar.net/chaos-artefacts-review-part-2/

It asks essentially the same question... on what model and under which circumstances would this 45 pt. Item be a good (or even decent) addition to an army?

A Sorcerer ?

It's not "good" unless you want to farm for Divination, and even that is fail. Just take a Level 3 with no mark and no other special rules.. Then profit. Sorcerer on a Disc is the only way to get it on a Toughness 5 character, so that works sometimes if you want more spells. In under 2500pts, it's not worth it.

It was nice having "Perfect Timing" on a 20man unit of Tsons.. You know, in one game out of many others. If a demon prince (they will almost certainly faq it later) can take the scrolls, it is better.

Honestly I would put it on a Daemon prince and aim for Biomancy...Iron Arm and Warp Speed on a prince. Yes please! Plus you would also need 6s to wound him not 5s.

Because it doesn't have the "Mark" of Tzeentch, right...?
I'm not entirely sure it will be FAQed. Pricing it at 45pts means it's obviously considered very powerful, it may be intended that a powerful Daemon Prince can't use it. Shame if that's the case, though.

What GW thinks is powerful is usually a 180, haha. I'd price the Scrolls 25pts at most.

and you're correct about the Mark.

Look at Axe of Rage or whatever the heck it's called.. A DP couldn't have it and then they just faq'd it to say a Khorne one could.
