The Catacombs is mm17, and let me take a look at what you have. Tcg prices it at $70, so that's what i'll try to build the trade up to.

This is how me and my friend draft his cube when its just us two. Theres another way called grid drafting but i kind of prefer the pile drafting (winston as you call it). The most keks and lels I have from pile drafting is when you and the other guy just arent drafting a certain archetype or color and so one pile gets really high and you end up taking that pile and changing your colors.

abby315 I completely agree with the ixalan comments. I specifically left out talking about ixalan and forward because some sets will not have masterpieces. People have been opening a lot more to try to get masterpieces and that is definitely part of the reason that CURRENT standard staples are going to have a hard time raising but as you have clearly pointed out some very powerful cards like glorybringer can see big rises an dips similar to Courser of Kruphix (you mentioned theros and my heart fluttered I loved that set) and Hangarback Walker they saw some play then saw a ton of play and shot up towards 20 bucks which is quite a bit for a standard staple. I could definitely see something like this happening to a couple current standard staples and definitely to future cards. Most likely in the sets that don't have masterpieces.

Nice evaluation it was pretty spot on for replacing certain cards. I am a little iffy on sunmare and angel of sanctions just because angel dies so easy and is a huge tempo loss when it does and sunmare is pretty hard to trigger consistently but I do think sunmare has promise. Anyway I think something very important to consider (not just necessarily from a financial perspective but a tournament perspective) is which decks already exist and which will exist post rotation which you kind of touched on without naming specific decks. As VampireArmy (I tried linking his name but it didnt quite work) mentioned when a format becomes unclear people play a pretty low to the ground aggressive deck.
Currently red does not really have the tools for that so what I expect to see is some sort of RW or mardu aggressive deck similar to mardu vehicles that currently exists but way more aggressive and probably just seeing Chandra, Torch of Defiance in the main deck as a form of top end. The other biggest contender early on is temur energy. This deck loses very much and still has most of its powerful hitters. Longtusk Cub, Bristling Hydra, Chandra, Torch of Defiance , and Glorybringer.
If you want to invest in cards I would say Chandra, Torch of Defiance although currently seeing a ton of play has the highest growth potential since itll probably replace gideon in most aggressive/midrange decks. Next would probably be Glorybringer. The biggest problem with standard sets recently is its just not easy to "invest in" because all the cards are so cheap because for the most part the best cards are rares and most of the mythics kind of suck. That and people have opened sets a bit more due to invocations so my advice is not to invest much into the cards now unless they are things like chandra and glorybringer.

I just want to preface this by saying I have never played your deck or your commander but I wanted to give you my advice anyway just take it with a grain of salt. I agree with all of your cuts except Disciple of Bolas from my experience playing that card its just freaking sweet all the time. Here are other cards I would consider cutting Mnemonic Wall, Combustible Gearhulk, Burnished Hart, Basalt Monolith, Commander's Sphere, and Ghostly Flicker

If there are cards you want then get rid of the cards you dont play and get them. I have been a long time trader and collector and I wanted some pricey cards so I sold a lot of cards I was not using and never looked back. Having cards sit around hoping they dont go up if you sell them is just a waste of time. Personally I would say something like marsh flats or most fetches wont go up any time soon at least not by more than like 5 dollars.
