When Battlebond released, MTGGoldfish made an Estimated Value article like usual, but keep in mind this was right after set release. The important thing to remember from this article is that the reprints hit a floor ~3-6 months after release and then rebound in price. Currently, its been about 2 months since release, meaning cards have the opportunity to drop further, but still rebound in price. The important bit for your pull is that True-Name Nemesis will only go up, as reprinting is VERY unlikely and it is near the low point for price. That said, if you wanna buy a couple boxes of Guilds of Ravnica when it comes out, selling it is still a fine idea as the price increase will probably be pretty slow since its an extremely expensive foil already.
Anyway, the part I'm more interested here is the current Estimated Value of a box, as I mostly forgot how valueable this set is and I bet you can pick up boxes for pretty cheap. According to MTGStocks, the EV of a pack is $4.28 on average and the EV of a box of Battlebond is $154.08 on Average, meaning if you can get a box at (or likely below) MSRP you'll probably get your money back unless you are extremely unlucky like me and pull 3 Grothama, All-Devouring and all your rares are Goblin Razerunners. This is just the average EV (when based on Market price it drops a little btw), but remember that most of these cards have nowhere to go but up, especially the mythics, and then you've got the crazy lottery cards like True-Name Nemesis. Not only is True-Name an absurd amount of money, but Based on this 7 foil mythics are worth $60 or more, and after that, even the cheapest one, Grothama, All-Devouring is a $15 foil. There are also a few in the $50 range, a few in the $40s, etc. 6 rares have foils worth over $45, and after that there are a few more surprisingly expensive foil rares such as Archon of Valor's Reach at $25. And dont forget that Partners come in pairs, and foil partners are in foil pairs! That means if you pull the $44 foil Rowan Kenrith you also got the $48 foil Will Kenrith. If you pull the $13 foil Pir, Imaginative Rascal, you also got the $10 foil Toothy, Imaginary Friend.
Overall, I think buying a box of Battlebond is probably worth it just for value, and even more if you can convince enough people to come draft it with you (with you of course taking all the cards if you bought the box yourself). And Battelbond boxes are still easily available for under $100 with little effort, and if you want to fight a bidding war on eBay, there are currently auctions for way under $100, but obviously those prices are going up before the auction ends.

The cards I would consider cutting are: Cryptolith Rite, Paradox Engine, Saheeli, the Gifted, Will Kenrith, and Tezzeret the Seeker . Cryptolith Rite makes your creatures produce mana, but you only have 10 creatures plus the tokens some of your planeswalkers can generate, but since you don't have enough pillowfort cards, you're likely to be trading creatures with your opponent, making the Rite fairly weak. Paradox Engine isn't doing much, even if you have Cryptolith Rite on the field. Saheeli, the Gifted can make tokens, which is good, but they'll likely just chump block other creatures, the cost reduction is nice, but most of the time it won't be more than a reduction of 2, and her ultimate is lack luster since the artifacts you have are for the most part not worth having in duplicates. Without Doubling Season, Rowan Kenrith can really mess you up if you don't have your pillowfort set up. Your deck does not have enough artifacts to make Tezzeret the Seeker 's abilities worthwhile.
Besides those, I'm not seeing too many other problematic cards, so it might come down to cards that don't help you as much. Perhaps Angrath, the Flame-Chained, Mana Vault, The Chain Veil, Mystic Barrier, Unsubstantiate, Ever-Watching Threshold, and Oath of Ajani

Thanks for the comments.
I had Brainstorm and Treasure Cruise in originally but I took them out as I never felt I was lacking draw and quite a few of our walkers draw already. Haven't put Venser, the Sojourner in as I don't own one. He would certainly go in if I had one.
I had Gideon Jura in also but he didn't really do a lot when he hit the board so I took him out. I could playtest him again instead of Ajani Goldmane. Contagion Clasp is a really good idea, I'll put one of those in for sure along with Impulse and Urza's Ruinous Blast!

TypicalTimmy, she may have defeated her demons, but Bolas still has to go down for her to regain her full powers.
Liliana, Bolas' Slave
+1 Each opponent discards a card. You gain 1 life
-1 Search your library for an Eternal creature card and put it onto the battlefield tapped, you lose 2 life.
-6 You get an emblem with "Whenever an eternal you control attacks defending player discards a card. Whenever an opponent discards a card you may add to your mana pool."
I don't care if this breaks modern or not, but I think that it's a cool design.
Creature - Bear Spirit
When Skalla Bear enters the battlefield you may look at the top 5 cards of your library. You may reveal a creature or land card from among them and put it into your hand. Put the rest on the bottom of your library in a random order.

vasarto77, I'm sorry if I came off the wrong way; I wasn't trying to trash your deck
Why would i know how you feel about Rhystic Study @DrkNinja? :P (It's cool that you found a deck for Will Kenrith and Rowan Kenrith, I got a battlebond booster from my LGS the other day and actually opened them!)
