-Mongolian (no longer used in Mongolia since the revolution).
-Ancient greek musical notation (not really a script, but there's 75
unicode charcaters for it).
-Byzantine musical notation.
-Arabic lacks ligatures.
-Sylheti Nagri (riginal sylheti script before they switched to bengali
-Phagspa (can be used to write chinese, mongolian and tibetian, fell out
of use with the rise of the ming dynasty).

I haven't checked very carefully though, so maybe there is some font for
some of these in some obscure place.
