Is it possible to export you card collection and deck composition into text format?

There doesn't appear to be a way to do this. I'm going to do a bit of reverse-engineering and packet sniffing on this. Maybe I can write a tool to pull this info from their system. I am, however, doubtful that I'll be able to do this without doing something that may break the TOS. –  RLH Jun 10 '13 at 19:42
    
Further comment... it looks like much of scrolls is built on top of IRC. I didn't discover this by the aforementioned packet-sniffing but by other research into scrolls. Later, when I get the chance, I'll see if I can tap into an IRC channel and make some calls to a system bot and see if it can return this data in an easily consumable manner. –  RLH Jun 11 '13 at 12:00
    
Do you mean that there is nothing saved locally on the PC but it is all retrieved from their servers? –  Drake Jun 11 '13 at 13:42
    
Drake: There is some binary data that I was able to find on the windows and mac variations that is stored in user folders. I haven't compared the two sets of files yet, but it doesn't look like this information is dynamic. It's more a bunch of static information to the user's experience or, one-time loaded data that is specific to your user account. –  RLH Jun 11 '13 at 13:50

I'll update my response when we get additional information that's a bit more official.

In the mean time, according to the Scrolls Guide pseudo-official Scrolls Blog there is a mod update in the works for "a few weeks from now", which will hopefully translate into mid-July update.

From the very coy blog post, it looks like there will be a deck importation feature, as well as a previous match summary report. Hopefully if there is a deck importer, there is a deck exporter.

Knowing Mojang's track record and general friendliness to the external dev community, I'd reasonably speculate that if an export function exists, it will be in a text-readable format and will most likely be XML.

UPDATE

Summoner, the unofficial mod-loader from Scrolls Guide is out. (Get it here.) This mod allows for the import and export of deck information and is available for Windows and OS X.
