I have a video coming out tomorrow where I got my butt kicked by a UW Angel deck in Standard. They were using Bishop of Wings, Resplendent Angel, and Fountain of Renewal. With the Fountain and the Bishop, they were guaranteed to gain 5 life every time they played an angel, so every angel they played was accompanied by a 4/4 angel with flying and vigilance.
Then they duplicated Resplendent Angel with Spark Double and things really got out of hand. XD
I'm the same way! I've been gutting my collection on Cardsphere and converting cards I'm not playing into cards that I want to play. It seems logical, and I was able to convert about $300 worth of cards in my rare binder into cards for Tier 1 Affinity...but even though I have a few hundred dollars worth of cards I'm not using, every time I see someone wanting to buy them I find myself passing on the opportunity. For what reason? I don't know. I still need 2 Inkmoth Nexus and I could sell a couple more cards to get them, but every time I have a chance to sell and raise funds I choose to keep the cards instead.

I've been holding onto mine for nostalgia reasons, but it might be time to say goodbye.
I've been doing that a lot lately too. It's hard to let some of that stuff go, even though a lot of it sits unplayed. Using MtG hobby to fund guitar hobby.
I found so many angels in my collection that instead of trying for one angel deck, I'm going to try for two. One mono white and one boros. I just searched through my collection and started a draft:
Why the Cathedral Sanctifiers? Well, I'm trying to add in life gain for survival and to buy time before I can get the bigger angels out. Plus, they are fodder for Emancipation Angel (should be 4 copies, not 1).
In 2012, WOTC technically ended the World Championship. They replaced it with the "Player Championship," and the format was the brand new Modern format that was created several months earlier. The change only lasted 1 year, as WOTC would revert back to the World Championship the following year, but in the meantime Jund would steal the show while Modern was in the spotlight. I know it's a pretty typical Modern archetype, but if you're interested in what the deck looked like back in 2012, check it out!
Yeah, that card was a rollercoaster ride for awhile. It was in the $50-range for a long time, then it plummeted down to $15 when it was printed in Battlebond, then skyrocketed again when it started being played in that Tron deck that tries to lock people out with Karn and Mycosynth Lattice.
I wish I had waited a little longer to sell mine. When it spiked after the Karn deck emerged I thought it was a flash-in-the-pan type of spike and sold out when it was around $30. Turns out the deck is legitimately competitive and it's been holding steady at $50 for awhile now.
I guess it's better than the $12 I almost sold it for a couple week before, though.
Going through some binders today and ran across my 4 copies of Mycosynth Lattice and one foil. It's a little beat up cause I played it unsleeved for a while before I knew better.
Started to wonder what worth, so I pulled it up on mtg stocks... whoa! About $55 and up to $200 for the foil.
Good stuff... I was thinking using it with Lethal Vapors and maybe something that punishes them when creatures die. Although I'm not sure how long that would last, someone would volunteer to skip a turn.
