Help a noob

I have given a lot of magic cards away in my time.  I have given some to cousins, to friends, kids at the local game store who are just getting started, but this most recent story is my favorite. 

There is a woman at the game store who just learned to play magic a few months ago and only plays modern.  She is stoked on the game and is getting good.  A couple weeks ago I went to the LGS to play modern, but it turned out it was Born of the Gods game day.  She only had a modern deck, but wanted to play magic.  She bought an event deck and as she was sleeving it up I walked over and asked if she wanted to borrow anything from my binder to spice up the event deck.  She ended up selecting a couple of Fabled Heroes and Angelic Skirmishers.

After the tournament she walked over to return the cards.
"Thanks" she said "Your cards definitely won me a couple of games.  I had a lot of fun today.  I really appreciate it. Here are your cards back."

"You know what?" I said "I want you to keep those.  Standard is a fun format, especially if you have a good deck.  You should come play Standard next week too."

"Awesome" she said "I might just do that."
