I have been known to use a razor blade scraper on heads. My normal tool is a well-sharpened chisel with a very straight edge. It's not bad but the dark areas still need to be scraped better.

Before mounting heads, check the block with a straight edge to look for any deviations from straight and level.

I agree that it's more likely for the head to warp than the block to do so.

I make the assumption that someone wanting to check an engine or head with a straight edge would be aware enough choose an edge which is known to be straight.
