That’s quite the list!

Formal 436 is a great font. I’ve never seen it before, so I just checked it out at MyFonts. Scriptina Pro has quite the flourishes. CheapProFonts is selling it on MyFonts for free, licenses for both desktop and webfont. Zapfino® Extra has many sets, with lots of curls and flourishes. And ITC Viner Hand is corroded, and in my opinion, isn’t really a script font.

Viner not your cup of tea? Look at Delphin, designed by one of the big names in the last century, Georg Trump, of Trump Medieval fame, and many others.
