Mtgdb.Gui is a free and opensource application for Windows to help Magic the Gathering players build decks. Card search features are well-thought, powerful and intutive. The search can be limited to the cards from user's own collection. Search for similar cards shows you cards with similar text and / or generated mana.
Mtgdb.Gui supports several ways to input decks and collection. Some of them are blazingly fast like drag-n-drop as well as copy and paste operations from other applications or websites.
Decks can be saved in various formats compatible with other MTG-related applications such as Magic the Gathering Online, Forge or XMage.
Diagrams give you a high-level understanding of what is your current workset like. The simplest example of a diagram is mana curve.
You can analyze your deck or collection from different angles by building your own diagram. It is conceptually the same as building pivot table or pivot diagram in Excel.

Using images from Mtgdb.Gui in Forge. With High Quality images anything gets prettier :)
UPDATE: as for year 2018 Forge's native card images have become way better rendering this feature obsolete.

|Showing the last card removed from deck in search result even if it doesn't matches filter||The people who used Magic Duel's online deck builder will understand me. It is such an annoying thing when you have a filter, then you remove a card, and you cannot quickly undo as the card disappears from search result.|
|This help can also be considered a feature worth mentioning|
